What’s not to love about Amazon prime? As a mom with 2 little people, I love being able to order things on Amazon instead of hauling my 2 toddlers to the store. It’s extra nice when I can get the free one-day shipping option!

5 Bonus Things You Get With Your Amazon Prime Membership #AmazonPrime #Amazon #LifeHacks #tips

But did you know that your amazon prime membership includes a lot more than just free 2-day shipping?

Things Included in Your Amazon Prime Membership

Here are some of our favorite things included with a prime membership.

Prime Video

Prime Video works very similarly to Netflix. The selection of movies included in your prime membership is always changing and includes a variety of movies and tv shows.

One big difference is that with prime movies you can also purchase and rent digital movies that aren’t available for free.

Prime Music

With Prime Music, you have access to over a million songs and hundreds of playlists all ad-free. You can create a custom playlist and even access the music offline on your phone through the Prime Music App.

If the music you want is not available in the Prime Music you can get a Music Unlimited subscription for$7.99 a month instead of the regular non-prime price of $9.99. The Music Unlimited plan has tens of millions of songsTry Amazon Music Unlimited Free Trial

Prime Photo Storage

If you have an Amazon Prime membership you can get unlimited photo storage and 5 GB of video/document storage on Amazon Drive and Prime Photos.  Storing photos on Prime Photo makes it really easy to order prints from Amazon.

Prime Photos shares memories at the top of the page when you log in. It’s a fun way to see photos from past years.

If you cancel your Prime subscription your prime photo storage ends. So be sure to backup your photos in another place as well as on Amazon. I really like my Seagate Backup for my photos and files.

Prime Exclusive Audiobooks


Prime Reading

With a Prime Subscription, you are able to access select books and magazines for free. You can do these from any iOS and Andriod device using the Kindle app.

For access to new releases and even more books, Kindle Unlimited is the way to go. You get access to over a million books and thousands of audiobooks as well as magazines. Kindle Unlimited is only $9.99 a month, that’s less than one new book a month. (Plus you can get a 30-day trial!)

This would have saved me so much money in High School when I was reading multiple books a week. Now I’m lucky if I get one book a month read in a month, other than picture books.

Let me know in the comments your favorite feature of Amazon Prime other than the free 2-day shipping.
