I miss having amazon prime, but I found myself buying a bunch of stuff I didn't need. It kind of offset the free shipping.

Amazon iphone app = money saver. See something in best buy, etc that you want, scan the barcode and it arrives the next day at your house, usually for 20% less.

Walmart is discontinuing selling Amazon's Kindle, probably because it's cutting into their sales of other merchandise.

Retailers are trying to fight a growing practice called “showrooming.” That’s when shoppers, armed with smartphones, browse products in physical stores and then shop online for a better price.

The first thing we do when we see something we want is to scan it and check Amazon. I love prime. We order a lot of our household and beauty items using subscribe and save through Amazon also. I probably save 15 dollars a month on my personal and beauty items alone.
Amazon prime is the awesome :D

I do that unless its a big item, then I do the 6 or 18 months no interest. Might as well keep my money in my pocket as long as possible.

Yeah, its convenient for us. Easily pay for the cost with gas and time savings, and better prices. My wife also gets some free content for the kindle fire, also. If its not needed TODAY, then its a lot easier to order than pile 3 young kids into the store, just to find out they don't have the model you want....

Last friday at 6pm my soldering station took a shit, and I had two hours worth of work that had to be done before 3pm on Saturday .

I had one the next morning at 10am and still saved $25 dollars over driving 30 minutes to a2 and getting another. About 75% of my business purchases are through amazon, and 50% of my household purchases. If I cant buy it right in town it comes from Amazon.

If only amazon had a massage parlor......

I love my amazon prime, I have saved at least triple in shipping, plus I got it in 1-3 days instead of 5-7.

We use Amazon Prime all the time. Probably 3-5 items a week average. Brilliant idea from them. We definitely buy way more stuff from them than anywhere else.
