Everyone knows about fast, free delivery—but here are some awesome Prime benefits you may not be taking advantage of.
Most people join Prime for its cornerstone benefit: fast, free delivery on millions of items. You’re probably also familiar with some of its other perks, such as shopping deals and discounts, access to an extensive library of digital entertainment content, and the ability to check out using Buy with Prime when shopping directly at a participating brand’s online store.
A Prime membership has a lot to offer. Here are just a few of the best benefits.
But that’s not everything a Prime membership has to offer. Prime is packed with tons of great benefits. Here are seven you may not know about:
