If you are an Amazon Prime member, you know that there are some pretty great perks. You get free shipping, free streaming movie and tv shows, and free music. But are you missing out on another way to get even MORE free?
Many of us order from Amazon using our Prime when we are in a hurry. Here in Indianapolis I am pretty much guaranteed to get anything in less than 2 days, sometimes next day without paying extra. But are you always in that big of a hurry?
If you are not, you should be taking advantage of the deals they give when you choose “Free No-Rush Shipping.” Right now when you choose the No-Rush Shipping on items that would normally apply for Free 2-day shipping, you get a $1 digital credit. That credit can then be used on eBooks, digital music, and videos.
And you may actually get more than 1 credit per order depending on how things were being shipped. I placed an order today with 4 items and ended up getting 3 $1 credits for it. That’s half a new Kindle book! The credits do expire so you have to keep an eye on them.
I’ve been using this option for a few months and have found that I still tend to get most of what I order within 3-4 days. So if I don’t need something in 2 days? Why not wait just a little longer and get free credits for it??
The promotion seems to come and go and sometimes they will run a different promotion in its place so be sure to pay attention at checkout. This is what you are looking for:
There’s another benefit many people do not take advantage of–Unlimited Photo Storage! Use their Cloud Drive to back up your photos and have access to them from your phone, computer, tablet or any Fire device (here’s the Cloud storage pricing chart).
Are you an Amazon Prime member? If not, try it free for 30 days! If you are, do you use the No-Rush Shipping option to get your free credits? Do you use the Photo Storage?
