5 Amazon Prime perks you really don't want to miss

5 Amazon Prime perks you really don't want to miss
Amazon

Amazon is one the largest retailers in the world with a market value of more than $250 billion. One reason for that huge number is quite simple: People love Amazon.

Whether it's the convenience, deals, selection, delivery time or all of the above, people keep buying and buying. That's one reason many of us sign up for the $99-a-year Amazon Prime, which offers free two-day delivery on most items. But, free delivery isn't Prime's only perk, far from it. Keep reading for some of my favorite Prime perks that don't get as much press.

1. Get deliveries the same day

Amazon Prime's big draw is free two-day delivery, but in some cities and for some items, you can get same-day delivery. It can even be free. Amazon has a map that shows which cities offer this service, and to see if it’s available in your specific area, just enter your ZIP code.

2. Share with others

Amazon Prime perks aren't just for you. All of your Prime membership benefits can be shared by up to two adults. To edit your account sharing settings, log in to your Amazon account. Next, navigate to your Manage Your Content and Devices page. Click on the “Settings” tab and choose "Households and Family Library" and then select "Invite an Adult."
