I love Amazon Prime. In the words of Mariah Carey: “I can’t live, if living is without you.” I rely on Amazon Prime way too much, but Prime is a serious game changer in my house. Some friends asked me why I love Amazon so much so I decided to dedicate a post solely to Amazon Prime, why I am forever in love, and how it has “upped my mom-game”.
When I signed up for Amazon Prime, I did it to get the free two day shipping, not knowing all the other benefits of membership. Below are the reasons I will be a “Primer” for life:
Four Ways Amazon Prime Has Upped My Mom-Game:
1. Free Two-Day Shipping on Thousands of Items
Like, I’m pretty sure the mail woman/man lives at our house. It’s so convenient to order things that I probably should just go to the store for, but Amazon always has good prices and it come right to my door in two days! I would say 95% of the time, the item(s) I want are two-day shipping eligible. From hair items that I can’t find in store, to electronics, food and clothing. Amazon is basically a one stop shop! Add to cart, pay, at my door step in two days. All while mama stays home instead of dragging whiny kiddos through a store.
2. Prime Video
We have an Amazon Fire Stick and Prime Video comes in handy so much. There are tons of free shows and movies to watch and also options to rent or buy a movie through Prime Video. I have caught my kids watching old nostalgic movies on Prime Video. If you don’t have a fire stick you can watch Prime shows from your computer or smart phone!
3. Amazon Music
I recently discovered Amazon Music and I am thrilled! Before Amazon music we had Spotify, but decided to cut down some subscriptions. Then a friend told me about Amazon Music and how it COMES with Prime! Win-Win. I can search for songs or artists and so far all the songs I’ve searched for were available (except Melekalikimaka- a request from my daughter who is learning the song at school). Amazon Prime is awesome for my music likes and kids music tastes. We recently had a Trolls karaoke shesh because the Trolls soundtrack was available on Amazon Music. Score!
4. Prime Now
Some readers know, my family and I recently moved from Utah to California. Where we lived in Utah, Prime Now was not available. Where we live now, Prime Now is available and it has made my life SO much easier because… some items are available for 2-hour delivery! I pretty much do the majority of my shopping through Prime Now. They have a lot of grocery items that I can have at my door within two hours! Two hours you guys!!
As a mom of three little ones this is a “hashtag” game changer! I often dread going to the store with all three kids. I end up having one kid crying, all of them asking for un-needed items, two of them poking each other, and all three kids crammed into one cart to keep them contained and in my sight. Let’s just say that it takes more then two hours for the four of us to shop and more of a headache then it takes to wait for the delivery. Literally, I get on my phone, choose the items I want, choose my delivery time, and wait for the knock at the door to receive my items. Then, fridge = full. I could rave on and on because it is my fave!!!
