You get more than just free 1 day shipping. Personally I wouldn't no need not like I buy often from there. If you're buying things from amazon frequently I would.

I have Prime. I shop on Amazon often so the fee is worth it IMHO. Get music and other things on top of the quick/free shipping.

Same here. For someone who buys only once or twice it is not worth it. But, I buy several times a month. I haven't used the music or the movies-but the free shipping.

I've had Prime for as long as Amazon has offered it because I buy everything online. However, Amazon has started using USPS almost exclusively in my area. USPS is totally unreliable, from tracking to delivery -- so much so that I'm not renewing my Prime membership next month.

And the opposite has been true for me. USPS is very reliable, and even delivers on Sundays!

I am a prime member and use it frequently. Sometimes I can get things on the same day. I also watch prime videos and listen to music.

Same here. We use USPS all the time and prefer it over the other carriers.

I am the original Prime fanatic :-) Ive had Prime for about 5 years give or take and I literally buy most of my life on Amazon. I love Amazon with a passion. The fact that I can find anything Ive ever thought about like a japanese nail clipper to like Kinder Bueno chocolate bars that arent even available in America. I get about 3 boxes a week so Im some kinda fanatic. LOL Does prime change your life and is it worth it? For me the answer is abso-f'in- lutely.

I have prime. But even their two day shipping is not second day delivery often. I have seen total take many more days to even ship .Its based on their estimate of what will take two business days once shipped. The best thing is you get faster once shipped ;you save on local searching and get generally a good price. Like always if you can wait then you do not need it and will save on shipping by ordering 35 dollars plus. But those ordesr if you have experience get second priority in getting shipped as to be expected with free and no prime.A search of their site will state just that on free shipping with 35+.I am good with prime to day at 100 dollars a year. Next day would be much more expensive.
