In the past I wrote about how much I enjoy Amazon Prime. While the cost for the yearly service has grown from $79 to $99 per year since I wrote my earlier entries I think it is important to include just what that $99 will provide to subscribers.
- Free two day shipping, $3.99 overnight shipping for most (not all) items available via Amazon.com.
- Access to a large selection of Ebooks for your kindle via the Amazon Lending Library
- Access to a number of movies to programs via Amazon Prime Video Streaming. Amazon recently partnered with HBO to stream much of their older original programing.
- Access to Prime Music Amazon's new music streaming service.
If you use all aspects of the Prime membership it is a great value. The music service was just added in the past week. I just started exploring the Prime Music options and there are a large number of great artists, songs and playlists.
So if you are still looking for a last minute gift, whip out your Visa and buy Dad a year of Amazon Prime.....within minutes he can be watching a streaming marathon of one of my favorite television dads, Tony Soprano via Amazon Prime Video Streaming.
