This isn’t directly related to miles & points, but is such a good deal that I feel like I should mention it. I buy just about everything through Amazon, so have a Prime membership with them, which costs $99 per year. For that you get free two day shipping, and the great thing is that you can use different addresses. In other words, Amazon Prime is fantastic for having something sent to you quickly and for free when traveling. I’ve had them send things to dozens of hotels.
Through 11:59PM PT today, November 18, 2016, new Amazon Prime members can purchase a membership for just $79.
While the price will show as $99 in your shopping cart, the discount will be applied at check-out.
Personally the only reason I have Amazon Prime is for the free shipping, though there are other features as well, that I know many value. These include:
- Instant access to thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video
- On-demand, ad-free music streaming to over 2 million songs
- Read unlimited books, magazines, and more on any device with Prime Reading
I feel like I should be taking advantage of those features as well, but haven’t bothered up until now.
Anyway, if you’re not yet a Prime member, considering buying a year-long membership for just $79 today. Also be sure you maximize your points on this purchase — there are targeted Amex Offers for 3x points on Amazon purchases, so you could earn up to 3.5x points on Amazon purchases with The Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card from American Express.
