Through Sunday, you can get a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime by clicking here.
Amazon Prime is more than just free two-day shipping. It’s also a desert topping. No, wait, that’s Shimmer.
Amazon Prime is kinda like a lot of things. It’s kinda like NetFlix in that “Prime Instant Video” streams thousands of movies and TV shows to hundreds of compatible devices and TVs. As I wrote in 257 Channels and Nothing On, it may not be worth $1,000 a year to watch Honey Boo Boo and your Duck Dynasty via cable or satellite when these handy-dandy inexpensive program options are out there.
I just started watching Amazon’s original program The Man In The High Castle and will check out Emmy winner Transparent. I have also added a few movies to my Watch List.
It’s kinda like FedEx, UPS, and The U.S. Post Office in that “Prime Shipping” sends lots of stuff to you in two days. But the shipping of “prime” stuff is free. The free shipping is pretty handy at Christmas. Instead of flying across the country with Legos and skillets, I buy stuff for my kin on Amazon and have them ship it free to my family back east.
It’s also kinda like the library and iTunes with access to Kindle Owners’ Lending Library and over a million songs in Prime Music.
