Have you ever found yourself wishing for a few extra hours in the day? The rat race is real folks, and there just never seems to be enough time to get everything done. And then there’s the money part of life. Making ends meet in a world where everything flys by so quickly can seem impossible. The last thing you want is to have things be just beyond your reach while everyone else is seemingly basking in it.

Amazon Prime is one of my favorite ways to save time and money. When I need something, I can order it from Amazon, usually at a lower price than in a store, and have it delivered within two days. The best part of that is, with Amazon Prime, the shipping is free! It’s perfect when we’re running low on household supplies or have an event coming up that calls for gifting, but there’s no time to run to the mall and shop. Since Amazon Prime members get early access to lightning deals, finding the perfect gift at a great price is within reach!
Something else I love about Amazon Prime is the free access to the Instant Video library. I haven’t paid for cable in years, and Amazon Instant Video helps to subsidize that. There are tons of movies and TV shows to watch, all included in the price of Prime.
Amazon Prime benefits don’t stop with free 2-day shipping and Instant Video. Other advantages include
- Prime Reading
- Prime Photos
- Prime Music
- Free same day and next day delivery (in certain zip codes)
- 20 percent off diaper subscriptions (perfect for new moms!)
There are so many time and money saving benefits that the membership more than pays for itself. Speaking of paying for Amazon Prime, did you know you could get a discount on Amazon Prime membership if you participate in a government assistance program?
Currently, customers with a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card qualify for the discounted membership. Qualifying membership includes Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading, Prime Photos and unlimited fast, free shipping for $5.99 per month for one year, with the ability to cancel anytime.
If you’re not a part of the EBT program, Amazon will be adding other ways to qualify in the future. The best part? There’s no annual commitment, and you can cancel your membership at any time.
I think it’s amazing that Amazon is offering this discount. Everyone should have the option of being an Amazon Prime member, and they are helping make that happen. If you or a friend/family member has been stressing the price of Amazon Prime, be sure to let them know that, if they qualify, they can receive a discount and get the same great benefits of Amazon Prime! They can learn more or sign-up for a 30-day free trial at amazon.com/qualify.
