How To Save Money With Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime

As we all know by now, an Amazon Prime membership can save consumers money by offering free shipping and entices a lot of newbies to sign up with just that perk alone. Amazon Prime includes a number of other ways to save, including Prime Video access, exclusive members-only deals, and even help save on prescriptions.

Amazon Prime Video has a massive video catalog and is included in Prime Memberships already. You can even save on extra streaming platforms by signing up via your Amazon Prime account and watch everything in one spot. 

Music fanatics will appreciate the large selection of tunes via Amazon Music. Over 100 million songs, thousands of special playlists, and podcasts are included ad-free with an Amazon Prime membership. Amazon Music can be used via the app on Alexa Echos, smartphones, or other compatible devices.

Bibliophiles can download one free new release every month with Amazon First Reads. Prime Reading’s ever-evolving digital library contains thousands of ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines. Readers can borrow ten selections at once with no limit to how many times a specific title can be borrowed.

Amazon Prime offers even more savings for those with a Prime Visa account. Cardmembers get 5 percent back on both Amazon and Whole Foods Market buys and 1 percent back for purchases made elsewhere. 

Prime Card Bonus members are eligible for an additional 10 percent or more for select items purchased off Amazon. The products and services available under the Bonus deal change regularly. Additionally, Prime Visa members can earn 2 percent back at restaurants, gas stations, and even commuting using rideshare apps or local transit.

Amazon Prime also helps customers save on their prescription costs when they sign up for RxPass. Eligible prescriptions with RxPass are only $5, even for those who have no insurance and pay out of pocket for medications. Many customers see savings of up to 68 percent. Prescriptions are automatically refilled and sent to your home with free two-day delivery.

A standard Amazon Prime membership runs $14.99 a month or $139 a year. Anyone receiving government assistance, such as SNAP, EBT, or Medicaid, only pays $6.99 a month. Are you a student? Then you can get a membership for $69 a year, or pay a monthly fee of $.749 in addition to getting access to special student-only perks.

Amazon offers a 30-day free trial for both Prime and Prime Access to new members and a six-month free trial for students attending a two or four-year college.
