My husband signed us up for an Amazon Prime trial subscription awhile back, then conveniently forgot to cancel it before the trial subscription ran out, THEN went ahead and ordered something using that Prime membership that we never meant to have. So, now we're stuck with it, I think. And for $80 a year, it's probably not the worse mistake we've ever made, as we order off of Amazon, a lot.
Since we're stuck with it, I spent the weekend looking into what else we get with the membership, in addition to the free shipping on Prime eligible items, and now I'm kind of jealous that this is assigned to my husband's account, and not mine. Did you know you could borrow books for free for your Kindle? It's only one per month, but still, I am all about as many free books as I can get. However, that only works for Kindles attached to the Prime account, which would be my husband's Kindle, not mine.
(So, I fully intend to switch the membership to my account when this first year is up, of course, if we decide to keep it.)
Also, we spent the weekend testing out the Prime Instant Videos library, and it isn't as bad as I thought it would be, when it comes to choices. There are a ton of kids shows to choose from, and since we are WAY behind on movie viewing, anyway, quite a few movies that we haven't seen, yet. (We watched Iron Man 2, if that's any indication of where we stand on the movie front...)
And with all seasons of The West Wing and Dawson's Creek available for free, I absolutely know what I will be doing with my upcoming maternity leave. I have lofty goals, I do...
