As you discovered over the Holiday Shopping Season, Amazon increased their Super Saver Shipping limit from $25 to $35. Which means, unless you have Amazon Prime (and get FREE 2-day shipping on everything) you have to spend $35 before your order will ship for free. This is just one of the many reasons that an Amazon Prime Membership is something that you may want to seriously look in to!
For just $79 a year, Amazon Prime comes with all sorts of great perks and right now you can get a FREE 30 day trial! Not only do you get FREE 2-day shipping on nearly everything, you will have access to over 40,000 movies and TV shows that you can stream instantly through your PC, laptop, tablet, Roku, Wiii and several other devices (this would be a great option if you have been thinking of cutting out cable!) You can also use the Kindle Lending Library which allows you to borrow one book each month – including new releases and best sellers.
Head over to Amazon here and check out Prime. We have had it for 3 years now and it MORE than pays for itself just on shipping for us.
