I’ll remind you what you get with Amazon Prime so you can decide if this deal is worth it to you!
Purchase Amazon Prime at a 20% Discount
Link: Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime usually costs $99 per year. But on November 18, 2016 between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm Eastern Time, you can get it for $79!
Many of the Million Mile Secrets team subscribe to Amazon Prime, because it comes with:
- Free 2-day shipping on items sold by Amazon
- Unlimited movies and TV shows from their collection
- Unlimited music streaming
- Unlimited storage space for your photos
- Early access to sales and deals
- 1 free Kindle e-book a month
I like that Amazon Prime allows you to download movies and TV shows to your devices. This is useful when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi (like on a plane)!
Note: If you’re only interested in 2-day shipping, you can also check out ShopRunner. They offer free 2-day shipping at over 85 stores.
And you can get a complimentary ShopRunner membership if you have an eligible American Express card, like the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express or the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express.
Use the Right Cards
