Amazon Prime is probably best known for two things: free two-day (scratch that: one-day!) shipping and Netflix-style video streaming. Those are decidedly worthwhile perks, especially considering the relatively low $119 annual subscription charge (a basic Netflix subscription costs $108 all by itself). But a Prime membership affords more than just shipping and streaming. A lot more. Here's a look at every single benefit included with Prime -- along with a few Amazon services you might have thought were included, but actually cost extra. (Don't have a subscription at the moment? You can sign up for Prime here, even if it's just to get a 30-day trial -- and you can even get Prime Day deals without being a member.) Sign up for PrimeThe complete list of Prime perks is surprisingly long. Let's start with everyone's favorite: fast, free shipping.Read more: Prime Day 2019: All the best deals so far The 7 best AmazonBasics products 7 Photos Shipping benefitsFree overnight … [Read more...] about Amazon Prime: 20 benefits every member gets

What do you need to get 4K in your home? I'll give you a hint: it's more than just a TV. While the 4K-compatible TV is the most obvious part -- and prices on those TVs have never been lower -- there's also content, external devices, cables, and more to consider. So here, in five easy steps, is what you need to get 4K in your home and to your eyeballs. 1. The TVNot all 4K TVs are the same. Yes, they all have 3,840x2,160 resolution, but that's not the whole story. If you haven't bought the TV yet, there are a few features to consider to get the most out of your 4K experience. The two biggest are High Dynamic Range and Wide Color Gamut. The added resolution of 4K is cool, but not really that big of an improvement by itself. Consider getting a TV with HDR and WCG. These are big improvements in picture quality, and we're starting to see more and more content encoded in HDR. At the very least, consider one with local dimming, as it will almost certainly look better than a TV without. Or … [Read more...] about What do I need for 4K?
When it acquired Whole Foods in August, Amazon said that Prime members would eventually get “special savings and in-store benefits” at the grocery stores, and the company just announced the first one: It’s for turkey! For Thanksgiving! A whole 20 percent off (non-organic) birds! If you’re a member of Amazon Prime, all you have to do is pull up a special coupon on Amazon’s website, go to Whole Foods before November 26th, select the specific type of turkey that’s on sale for Prime Members, take it to the cashier, present the coupon, and BOOM, you save money. If all this sounds complicated, don’t worry, Amazon feels your pain. In fact, the process for redeeming the first ever Prime-exclusive discount at Whole Foods is so specific and regimented that Amazon includes a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section on the coupon page itself. You can only see that coupon, by the way, if you’re signed into an Amazon Prime account. Normies … [Read more...] about Amazon’s First Whole Foods Deal for Prime Members Is a Coupon With an FAQ
Amazon has added so many benefits to Prime that they’ve become hard to keep track of, so we’re rounding them up for you, and will update this post as new ones roll out. Sadly, we can’t list drone delivery as a perk just yet. Free Two-Day Shipping (Or Same Day, Or One Hour) Amazon Prime is best known for its free two-day shipping in the lower 48 states. Their shipping estimates are highly reliable, and if you don’t need your items right away, you can choose a slower shipping method and get yourself some kind of credit (categories and values rotate). You might even be able to trick the system into giving you the fast shipping and the credit. If Amazon does fail to get you your items on time, you can get get your Prime membership extended. Residents of a few major cities can now select same day delivery, and also take advantage of the new Amazon Fresh grocery delivery service, while those outside of the current range of Amazon Fresh can still use Amazon Pantry.
