I can honestly say Prime is one of the best deals out there for me. (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org in Amazon increases free shipping minimum order to $49 on 2016-02-26 21:06 (#1598E) Sure it costs quite a bit once a year - but I more than make it back. Every time I order something I'll look for "Prime Only" and verify that against stuff that may happen to have free shipping otherwise. The first year I used it I saved enough on shipping bicycle parts alone to justify its existence. Throw in the movies and TV shows I get with the Prime membership it runs the value up a lot, I generally am anti-music streaming (I'm an ogg hoarder) but I used the Prime streaming one day and actually found a new band to listen to.If you order from them more than four to six times in a year I would say it's absolutely worth getting.
