There are certain products that aren’t directly travel related, which are still invaluable for anyone who spends a lot of time on the road. For me, one of those products is Amazon Prime. I buy virtually everything non-perishable through Amazon, and Amazon Prime saves me a bunch of money on those purchases. I’ve also saved quite a bit on recent Amazon purchases thanks to the Chase Freedom 10x points promotion as well as the Amazon Amex Offers promotion.
Amazon Prime ordinarily costs $99 per year, but through 11:59PM PT on Sunday, January 17, 2016, you can purchase a yearly Amazon Prime membership for just $73!
For those of you not familiar with Amazon Prime, it comes with the following perks:
- FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items
- Unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs
- Instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video
- Free unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive
- Read free books each month through Kindle First and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library
Frankly the only perk I’ve used is free two day shipping, which I use an average of at least once a week. Sometimes it’s even faster than that. For example, on Tuesday I realized I needed a new memory card for my camera, and it arrived at my hotel on Wednesday.
The great thing about Amazon Prime is that two day shipping isn’t limited to just one address, but if you’re moving around you can use it to ship items to anywhere in the US. I can use it to send myself things in different hotels, to send gifts, etc.
You only have a couple of days to take advantage of this offer. Also keep in mind that Amazon Prime auto-renews, so if you don’t want it to automatically renew, be sure to update your preferences as soon as you sign up.
Amazon Prime is an extremely useful program, and one which I find even more valuable when living in hotels. Having stuff shipped quickly is important when you’re making short hotel stays, and Amazon Prime’s free two day shipping really helps with that.
If you don’t have an Amazon Prime membership, I’d recommend signing up using this promotion by Sunday.
