5 Reasons You Need to Get an Amazon Prime 30-Day Trial NOW

5reasonsyouneedtogetanamazonprime30-daytrialnow2

 

If you’ve been considering signing up for an Amazon Prime 30-Day Trial – now is the absolute BEST TIME in the whole year to do it.

Not later on this month.  Not sometime before Christmas…

THIS.  WEEK.

Why?

Folks, Black Friday is coming, Lightning deals are coming, Cyber Monday is coming – it’s all about to hit and I want you to be able to save some serious money during these sales!

5 Reasons to Get an Amazon Prime 30-Day Trial NOW

****NOTE****If you’ve already done your trial and are waiting for the membership fee to drop – don’t miss this!!

Amazon announced Wednesday they will offer a 1-DAY discount on Prime memberships TODAY, 11/17/16.  For only 24 hours the cost of a 1-year Amazon Prime subscription will drop from $99 to just $79!

.

amazonwclock

1 . FREE 2-Day Shipping

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ordered last minute gifts and the Amazon Prime 2-Day shipping saved the day.  As we start getting closer and closer to Christmas – this will come in SO handy to put presents under the tree and send gifts to family around the country.

That’s why now is the BEST time to get a 30-Day Free trial – from now until a week before Christmas you’ll be scoring free shipping on just about anything you could possibly be shopping for!

bedtime

2 . Cheap 1 -Day Shipping

For only $3.99, Amazon Prime members can upgrade to 1-Day Shipping.  (The cost for non-members is $9.95.)  In my opinion, that’s pretty reasonable for 1-Day delivery!

Plus if you live in select cities around the country – you may actually qualify for same-day delivery, which is just nuts!  Those lucky ducks can get things delivered by 9pm (isn’t that incredible, really?)

early-lightning

3 . Early Access to Lightning Deals

Amazon shoppers who are Prime members will also get a 30-minute early access to select lightning deals.

Additionally, certain Amazon sales are ONLY available to Prime Members – you don’t want to miss those with all the Black Friday and Holiday Deals about to hit!

You can find out more about Amazon Lightning Deals and Black Friday sales in general in my post 5 Secrets to Shopping Amazon on Black Friday.

 

 

primemovies

4 . Books, Movies and Music Streaming

Kids will be taking a break from school, family will be visiting, and some of us will be traveling.

It’s a great time to use the Free Kindle library, stream movies and tv with Amazon Instant, or make a holiday playlist on Prime Music.  Check out the selection of great movies and shows here!

 

prime-pantry-box

5 . Convenience!!

I’m telling you guys – I use Amazon for just about everything – it helps this busy momma stay sane sometimes!

Save yourself trips to the store for just about ANYTHING with Amazon Prime.  It makes a crazy time of year a little bit less crazy – because there is such a wide variety of things you need at your fingertips. (And they all come right to your door!)

Grab extra cookie sheets for holiday baking, or a new turkey-roasting pan.

Restock on pantry items like paper towels and dishwasher detergent.

Even schedule in a Christmas movie night and the popcorn to go with it!

The Ultimate Aldi, Costco, Sam’s, Target, Walmart Baking Price Comparison Sheet (Christmas Edition)

ultimatebakinggraphic1

I’m so stinkin’ excited about this! My friends Cheryl and Shannon did an incredible job putting together this Ultimate Aldi, Costco, Sam’s, Target & Walmart price comparison cheat sheet so you never pay too much this Christmas season for your baking supplies.

baking

They’ve priced everything you’ll need as you’re baking this Christmas season, including sugar and butter, chocolate chips and eggs, flour, baking soda and more.


screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-10-30-49-am

Honestly? I was shocked at the results. I would never have thought Sam’s, Costco and Aldi would be so much lower than some of the other stores are certain items, but they were.

IMG_2536.JPG

Now, these prices don’t take sales into account, so if Target or Walmart drops the prices on these during a special sale you may get a better price at those stores. But, hopefully this gives you a good idea of how to get the best price, so you never (ever!) pay too much!

Free Text Alerts Of The Very Best Christmas Deals

screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-8-17-10-pm

If you haven’t signed up before, be sure to check this out ~ super simple way to keep up with all the best deals this Christmas season!

 

I’m so excited about this! If you feel like you’ve missed a few of the best deals on PPP, now you can easily sign up for mobile alerts of the VERY BEST DEALS ONLY that I post here on Passionate Penny Pincher.

Here’s how to sign up: 

  • Text Follow ppphotdeals to 40404
  • You’ll receive a message from Twitter that says “want to tweet? Welcome to Twitter! You’re now following @ppphotdeals and you’ll receive your Tweents on  your phone. (Std msg rates apply. Reply w/HELP for more.)
  • To STOP getting updates, just text Off ppphotdeals to 40404

Note that this will not be all of the deals – my thought is that it would be no more than five to ten texts per week, and most likely fewer (especially after the Christmas season is over.) Here are a few ideas of what I would consider “BEST” deals:

  • American Girl savings
  • HUGE Lego sale
  • 50% or more sale on Pyrex or Cooking items
  • Big sale on Kids ride on toys
  • Items that are high value but I know won’t last

screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-7-09-44-am

This is run through Twitter, however you DON’T need a Twitter account to sign up (and you won’t be contacted by me through Twitter.) It’s just a program that easily lets me send you the deals, and hopefully will help you save on the hot items that sell out quickly!

Let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestions, and hurry to signup today – I can’t wait to see all the deals coming up over the next few weeks and am excited about an extra way to share them with you!

Note: Standard text message rates DO apply. If you have a limited number of texts available per month, I DON’T recommend signing up.

costco2

Milk $2.29 per gallon This beats the price I’ve seen at Kroger lately, but my Aldi has milk for $.99 a gallon so if you don’t have a Costco membership you can still easily save.

costco9

Bananas $1.39 for 3 pounds or 46¢ per pound

costco12

Costco Rotisserie Chicken $4.99 which comes out to about 5 cups of shredded chicken ~ stock up price!

costco5

Perdue Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast 10 lb. bag $23.99 or $2.39/lb. If you love Perdue chicken breast, the Costco price isn’t awful, however you’ll get a better price when buying fresh chicken (Fresh Thyme and Sprouts has it for $1.67 this week), and Kroger regularly puts their frozen boneless skinless chicken breast on sale for around $2.20/lb.

costco10

Organic Spring Mix 1 lb. $4.49 – no coupon but a very good price

Not a deal

costco22

Smucker’s Uncrustables are $10.95 for 18 and just not a good price at 60¢ each. You may find them at a better price at your local grocery, or take a few seconds to make them at home ahead of time and freeze!
