If you already have Amazon Prime, you already know about the luxury of 2-day shipping on many items. Personally, I love it. Probably a little too much (sorry, husband!) Whether it’s dryer sheets, toys for the kids, planner supplies, clothing, or kitchen essentials. I. Love. Shopping. On. Amazon. However, did you know your Amazon Prime membership gives you more than just fast & free shipping? As a mom especially, there are so many benefits to being a Prime member.
Amazon Prime Benefits for Families
Amazon Prime Family, formally Amazon Mom, provides discounts, exclusive deals, parenting tips, and product recommendations to families with young children. You get all of this delivered to your email in a newsletter. After filling in your baby’s age, or due date if you are still pregnant, you will get exclusive deals and opportunities custom to your baby’s age. You will save up to 20% on diapers, baby food, and other baby items. If you have your Baby Registry with Amazon, you’ll bump your completion discount from 10% to 15%. You must be a prime member to join Amazon Prime Family, but you can try it out as part of your 30-day trial.
The Amazon Prime Baby Registry is literally the only registry you need. You can add items from any website, and you can update it from anywhere at, anytime. Amazon Prime has the largest selection of baby items, over 270,000 items, and the return period is a whole 90 days. As with most baby registries, you get a completion discount of 10% for non-members, and this increases to a whopping 15% for Amazon Prime Family members! Regardless of being a prime member or not, you can get free shipping on orders over $25.
Amazon Prime also offers a Wedding Registry. This is universal registry and you can add items from any site. Amazon Prime members get a 20% discount on ANYTHING left on the registry after your wedding. The return period with registry item is 180 days and you can even earn free bonus gifts when guests buy from certain brands. Your guests can also contribute to a group gift together on pricier items. There are more features and benefits to having a Amazon Prime Wedding Registry, honestly too many for me to list them all here! Check them out on Amazon!
Entertainment from Amazon Prime
Members of Amazon Prime automatically get access to Prime Music. With each Prime membership, you can stream over 2 million songs for no extra charge. If you need more, it’s only $9.99/month to access even more music and you can try it free for the first 30 days.
You can also watch thousands of popular movies and tv shows for free with prime. They even have several originals now! You can also upgrade to get access to shows premium channels such as Showtime, Stars, and HBO.
There is a good chance you’ve heard of Audible, but did you know it is run by Amazon? Audible is a audio book app where members subscribe and receive credits monthly to exchange for books. New users can get two free books to try it out.
I have personally been an Audible member for well over 5 years now and I’ve loved almost every book I’ve listened too. I listen to it in the car, while cooking and cleaning, in the shower, and sometimes I put on an uplifting self help book to fall asleep to. I have even re-listened to books I bought half a decade ago and enjoyed them like it’s the first time. As a mom, my Audible subscription is worth it’s virtual weight in gold.
If you prefer actually reading, Amazon has you covered there with the Kindle reading app. Amazon Prime members get a free book every month and you can upgrade to Kindle Unlimited to access even more titles for a low price. The Kindle and Audible apps are available on any device.
Give the Gift of Amazon Prime
Do you have a loved one who you think would benefit from Amazon Prime? You can gift a year long membership of Amazon Prime. Maybe it’s your parent, grandparent, newly weds, or even a college student. So many people can benefit from Amazon Prime and gifting a membership is sure to be appreciated by anyone who is receiving it!.
This really is just a short list of all you can get out of your Amazon Prime membership. The convenience of 2-day shipping is worth the cost alone, add in all of these other benefits available, and it’s really a no brainer. Every mom should have Amazon Prime. So what are you waiting for?
