The subject line says it all. I'm tempted to subscribe to Prime but would like to hear from those that actually have it or had it. Is it worth the $99 per month? Do you use it for Prime video streaming and if so, how is that?
I think you meant $99 for the year and $9.99 per month, but you can cancel at any time. From time to time I sign up when I know I will be buying a lot, so it's worth it then. I haven't used the Prime Video part since I've got so many shows I'm behind on my DVR and Netflix. I get offers for free trial months from time to time and sign up as well. Amazon makes it easy to sign up and cancel so it's worth a shot for the month. Both my boys have Prime (as college students they got discounts) and have kept it, so they obviously think it's worth it.

Hehehe - yes I did mean $99 per YEAR. I saw that Amazon Prime Day is coming up and that got me thinking about finally joining. I guess if you can cancel at anytime you don't have much to lose. Guess I'll give it some serious thought and I appreciate your input.
Anyone else have anything to say about Amazon Prime?
I bought Prime for myself as a Christmas gift when it first came out. I hate shopping and I love instant gratification of quick delivery so it is worth it to me. We do use Prime Video to watch Amazon video on our TV (don't ask me how that works, DH set it up). There are some good Amazon produced series and movies to watch. Also Amazon Music is free to Prime members (a music streaming service). Every month there is a set of about to be released Kindle books that are featured and Prime members can download one book from the featured set for free. Free 6-month trial subscription to online edition of the Washington Post.
Anyone can get a free trial subscription, so time that to coincide with Prime Day.

We have been Prime members for a few years and to us it's worth it. We buy so much from Amazon and sudden instant needs tend to pop up. Also tired of stores not/no longer carrying what we want. Like my favorite bread, DH's favorite dental floss to mention a few odd things. Cause and effect: less selection in stores - more variety on internet. Did the egg come before the hen?

We have had prime for several years and mostly have it for the free 2 day shipping - we do a lot of on-line shopping...we do use prime for movies (although we use Netflix more)...I have downloaded some of the new about to be released books and have listened to some of the music...for us it is totally worth it.

Echoing Swedishcook, ended up signing up for prime when products I needed became unavailable locally. I usually don't need "it" in 2 days, but I like predictable. Plus, I do shopping for a sister who doesn't have a computer( probably never will) and can't drive. I can get things ordered and delivered to her house. If you see how much shipping costs these days, free shipping is an incredible bargain. Never thought I could buy things easily online but I got used to it and it generally works well.
