I think it really depends on what you're looking for. If you're more interested in content, it may be a good thing to get involved in (with or without the shipping). I've been tempted to join but as I am saving money for school, I must admire from afar. Also, thanks everyone, I had no idea music was also included in this!

I LOVE my prime membership. I bought it as a student at a discounted rate and never discontinued it. Every year I say I'm going to reevaluate if I need it or not...and I just end up using it more and more. I LOVE having a free book each month.

I also recently switched from iPhone to a samsung galaxy phone and discovered that Samsung and Amazon have a deal where I can select one free book each month with them too...2 (good) free books each month!!

I personally love my kindle fire and Amazon prime is resourceful if you don't want to join kindle unlimited for the monthly cost the only down side is most books I choose are series starters therefore I would have to wait a month till able to check out next book given that it's also a prime book but I still think it's a great perk amongst many of Amazon prime.

I do not like Prime. I do not think it is worth it. If I really want a free book i'd rather do the $9.99 a month, which I am not doing, but I would go that route first.

I love Amazon Prime. The two day shipping is pretty great despite how it sounds. The books that you can get for free are pretty good they have the whole Harry Potter series and all of Lord of the Rings. They've also got lots of good movies and TV shows to watch. They also give you lots of music. I've had Prime for about three years now and I use it at least every two days.

I signed up for Prime shortly after the program began. I don't remember how many years ago that was. For the first few years it was simply a free shipping program and I live in a rural area without a car so it was a big saving and convenience for me.

Later they added free videos and recently the Prime books. I watch a lot of the videos. I don't have a TV or want one with all the commercials. I've gotten one Prime book just to try it out but I have so many books in my library it seems I already have most of the ones they offer that interest me.

Still, for me, the reason for Prime is the free shipping. I probably order 10 to 15 items a month using it. It's great.
