I am starting this threat in anticipation that there will be some worthwhile bargains on the prime event. For non primers; sometimes amazon offer discounted prime membership prior to this sort of event.

In 3-4 words - Amazon Shopaholic Fuel

In slightly more words - a subscription service to Amazon incurring a monthly fee with benefits such as access to Amazon Instant Video, faster delivery and occasional exclusive deals.

Corrected for clarity. You also get free Access to Amazon music and Amazon books (as with Instant Video, there's a vast library of free stuff, but some of it you still would need to pay for).

You and I must have different definitions of "free" - I could accept "at no extra cost" but Amazon Prime benefits are far from free.

Except the sentence says 'a subscription service to Amazon incurring a monthly fee with benefits' and since you no longer pay for delivery on top, then it's free (as it will mostly cost you something for next day delivery)...weird thing for you to argue about...shake

Don't waste your free prime month before you know that there's something worthy to order (if you not already plan on getting prime).

Our Prime renewed yesterday.
We'd been doing a free trial but OH got an offer for a reduced years subscription, so we took that out.

My main motivation was saving money when there was price drops. You're not really saving money if you have to buy more stuff to get free delivery. We have a young child and stash presents all year for birthdays and xmas when they are price dropped.

We do watch stuff on Amazon Video, but we need to watch more.

I think the Prime works when ordering from German amazon etc as well. There is still extra P&P but no where near as much when buying from non prime sources.

I bought an older Haba title last month for my daughters birthday from 'another seller'. It was 3 euros, but delivery and handling was almost 9 euros! And that's a small, light box.

Where as when we bought Colt Express and Parfum from amazon.de which were Prime the total delivery and handling was 6 euros. That's for two much larger boxes.

The convenience of next day delivery is great. We appreciate it much more than we expected too. Saves petrol money, we think, 'don't need to drive to X town and try and find y'. instead we order off Amazon and get it the next day.

Non-prime shipping for these games to the UK is €7. 28. I'd need to make a lot of amazon.de orders in a year to justify the ridiculous prime charge! Of course, if you make enough use of the other services it might be worthwhile, but for me it's nowhere near good value.

If you only order from Amazon.de, I would not recommend Prime as a way of making a delivery saving alone. If you're ordering from Amazon.co.uk and filter prime delivery products, you can save a LOT.

Prime can save you delivery times for sure, but you do need to pay attention to the "this item is cheaper from a non-prime seller".

Sometimes its not much, but you may save something by NOT going prime (this from prime member )

My book's released today - does that count...?


Go away

Maybe if it was board games-related it would be a bit okay, but you wrote a book about how to obey to a Christian cult...
