7 Updates to the Amazon Prime Membership That Will Make You Join!

Amazon has everything and everyone’s heard of Amazon. What you may not know is that Amazon has a “Prime Membership” that can save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. Last year, I saved over $100 on shipping costs on 15 shopping trips.

Over the past year, 2016, Amazon made several updates to the Prime membership:

1. Updated Prime Music: Over one million more songs and thousands of new playlists and stations have been added to your unlimited music streaming access.
2. Updated Prime Photos: Unlimited photo storage you can share with up to five people through the newly added Prime Photos Family Vault.
3. Added Audible Channels: Unlimited listening to comedy, news, and original audio series through Audible.
4. Added Prime Reading: Unlimited reading of over a thousand books, current issue magazines, comics, and Kindle Singles on any device — including your phone, tablet, or Kindle.
5. Added Twitch Prime: Ad-free viewing on Twitch, a free Twitch channel subscription every month, exclusive access to free game content, and more.
6. Added Amazon Music Unlimited: $2/month discount for Prime members on an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription, with access to tens of millions of songs.
7. Added Access to Amazon Channels: Prime members can subscribe to premium video channels like HBO, Showtime and Starz.

I hesitated at first when I considered subscribing to Prime because I wasn’t sure if the savings would outweigh the cost but I am so grateful that I joined. I decided that the Free Two-Day Shipping made it worthwhile for me, but then I learned about all of the other benefits that come along with the membership.
