Books by Kindle Buffet publisher Steve Weber:
Nobody enjoys spending time weeding through apps that don’t deliver the promised features (or contain hidden features you’d rather not have installed on your Kindle Fire). So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
Way back in 2005, I received an email from Amazon.com announcing a new program called “Prime.” It was a simple proposition: If I paid $79 a year for the annual membership, I’d get free two-day shipping on most of my orders. Plus, I could upgrade to overnight shipping at a huge discount—just a few dollars per order.
I’m plenty thrifty, but Amazon didn’t need to twist my arm before I coughed up my $79 fee for a Prime membership. It was a no-brainer. I order something from Amazon at least once or twice a week—books, groceries, electronic gadgets (the list has grown every year). So I didn’t need to scribble the numbers on the back of an envelope to see that my annual Prime membership would pay for itself within a few months. Easily!
In the decade since then, Amazon has increased the Prime membership fee just $20. Meanwhile, the company has stacked up more and more benefits to Prime, much beyond the special shipping deals that attracted me at the start:
- Free on-demand streaming of movies and TV shows. The service, called Amazon Instant Video, is similar to Netflix’s online video service. And while Amazon’s video store doesn’t yet match Netflix’s selection, Amazon is gaining rapidly.
- Free monthly rentals of popular Kindle ebooks, thanks to the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. Anyone with a Kindle device and a Prime membership qualifies for the freebies, up to one book per month, with no due date.
Whether you’re like me—someone for whom Amazon Prime is a must-have—or a more infrequent Amazon customer—this book will explain how to get the most bang out of your Prime bucks.
Since you’re considering this book, you probably have several questions about Prime—what it is, and how to use it best. Let’s get started!
