is amazon prime worth it for $119
We think Amazon Prime is worth the money. Keep reading to find out why.

Asking the question “How much would you pay for Amazon Prime?” is kind of like asking how much would you pay to keep using Google. It’s so fundamentally entrenched in our daily lives that it has reached a near-ubiquitous status. We are used to near-instant gratification, and, for many of us, it’s hard to put a price on that convenience.

If you pay month to month, an Amazon Prime membership is $12.99 per month, and a Prime Student membership is $6.49 per month. For EBT and Medicaid holders, additional discounts bring the cost down to $5.99 per month. Overall, paying month to month for the average user will cost you about $37 more than the annual option over a year.

Is Amazon Prime worth it at $119?

In short, yes. JPMorgan has estimated that your Amazon Prime membership is actually worth $785 annually.

For the $119 annual fee or $13 monthly fee, Prime members get a ton of benefits (which definitely range in usefulness). Among them are free one-day delivery, free same-day shipping, and free two-hour delivery on eligible items (of which there are many), exclusive rewards and discounts, access to Prime Video, Prime Music, online photo storage, music and books, and over 20 other perks.

As a Prime member, you also get access to Prime Day discounts on everything from new TVs to Instant Pots to Amazon Echo devices. For those not familiar, Amazon Prime Day is the retail giant’s annual sitewide savings event exclusively for Prime members. It took place on June 21 to 22 this year.

Granted, you may not use every feature included in your membership, but the convenience alone is worth the cost.

If you’re a student and/or have access to a university email, you can save 50% on the yearly or monthly fee with Amazon Prime Student. You can also share your Amazon Prime and most benefits with family members via Amazon Household, making your dollar stretch even further. Even if none of that applies to you, it’s still generally a great investment.

Ultimately, most of us will pay a bit more for the perks we’ve come to rely upon without much grumbling. But, if you want a breakdown of the ways you’re saving and potentially reassess the cost, check out our breakdown below. If you’re unsure and haven’t made the leap yet, check out a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime before deciding it’s worth committing to.

Here’s a breakdown of why Amazon Prime is still a great value, even at $119 per year:

Shipping costs

free shipping

The annual or monthly price includes free one-day delivery on over 10 million items with no minimum purchase. Without Prime, you’ll get free regular shipping if your order is over $25, but no one-day perk.

One-day shipping (give or take a couple of bucks) typically costs about $10. If, as a Prime member, you place 11 orders of under $25 over the course of a year on Amazon (say, you need paper towels but not much else), the membership pays for itself. 

And while expedited shipping is an abnormal cost for most of us, it’s a pricey one. Prime’s Same-Day speeds offer delivery on millions of items in 47 major metropolitan areas for orders over $35.

On average, Amazon Prime members spend $1,400 US dollars on the platform every year. Non-Prime users spend a little less than half that ($600), but they may be picking up the tab elsewhere, like in the cost of gas to shop in-store, the higher price of items from big-box retailers, and shipping from other stores. 

Video streaming services

Screen Shot 2018 05 02 at 10.30.27 AM

One of the suspected reasons for the increase in annual fees in 2018 was due to the amount of money Amazon planned to pour into its digital content, which is one of the best perks of the Prime membership.

Prime Video lets you stream from a large library of movies and TV shows for free, including Amazon Originals content, and rent the latest releases for low prices. Prime members can also subscribe to over 100 channels (and only pay for the channels they want, which is great for saving money without losing convenience), including HBO, Showtime, and CBS All Access

Plus, it’s probably only going to get better as streaming competition intensifies.

Prime Video Monthly Subscription (medium)
Unlimited photo storage and sharing, as well as 5 GB for videos and files

36467_desktop_hero_en US_1500x375

Amazon Photos lets you save and share unlimited full-resolution photos across desktop, mobile, and tablet, as well as share unlimited photo storage with up to five people. If you’re paying a few bucks every month to increase your iCloud storage just to make room for the photos on your phone, you can cut out that cost and use your membership to a fuller extent.

You’ll also get five GB for videos and files. And Amazon Photos comes pre-installed on Amazon devices, so you can also view your photos from your Fire TV and Echo Show. 

Sharing Prime benefits across an entire household at no additional cost

amazon household

If you’re using it as a family, Amazon Household is one of the easiest ways to see the return on your Prime membership investment. Two adults and up to four teens and four child profiles may link in a ‘Household,’ allowing everyone in the family to enjoy Prime benefits (free shipping, Prime Video, Amazon Photos and share content like ebooks, audiobooks, games, and apps) without paying extra. This alone makes Prime a good deal if you or your family members use any of the features even sparingly. 

Another benefit of linking accounts is that adults can approve orders before they’re placed (for teens) and set parental controls on digital content (for kids). 

Prime exclusive rewards and discounts, like Prime Day deals, Lightning Deals, and a rewards credit card that gives you 5% cash back

amazon prime day

Your Prime membership also makes you eligible for lots of exclusive deals, which are the metaphorical cherry on top of the rest mentioned.

The most impactful is access to Prime Day deals, Amazon’s annual holiday that took place earlier this year. If you missed it, don’t fret, you also get exclusive access to the following:

Early access to Lightning DealsPrime members get an extra 30 minutes to shop lightning deals (which typically last only for a few hours) before they’re officially open. Just look for the “Prime Early Access” label as you shop the page. 

Discounts or rewards for choosing no-rush shipping at checkout: If you can wait a few extra days for your order to arrive, you can either earn rewards on future purchases or receive discounts immediately. Rewards are automatically added to your account once your free No-Rush order ships and they are automatically applied to qualifying orders as well. 

A rewards credit card with no annual fee or foreign transaction fees: Get 5% back at Amazon.com and Whole Foods Market, 2% back at restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores, and 1% back on all other purchases. You can redeem your points on Amazon as well as for cash back, gift cards, and travel.

The option to try clothes on at home before actually buying them

PW_HERO._CB499956346_

Prime Wardrobe lets you try on and purchase new styles at home. Choose three or more items across their many lines and try them on at home before deciding what to keep and pay for. You have seven days to choose, and you can just check out online once you’ve decided. From there, return your unwanted items for free using the resealable box and prepaid shipping label. 

If you don’t frequently shop online this might not save you much money through your membership. But if you’ve ever gotten burned by a short return window and a busy schedule, the try-before-you-buy is a great feature to save money in the long term. 

Access to books, magazines, and comics

prime reading

Prime members get access to Prime Reading which means they can choose up to 10 titles at a time from more than 3,000 options as a perk of membership, and Amazon First Reads gives you access to one free Kindle book every month chosen by Amazon book editors. 

And if you have kids and find yourself spending a lot on kids’ books, movies, TV shows, or educational apps and games put together, Prime members can pay $2.99 per month for a single child or $6.99 for a family of four kids for Amazon Kids+, which gives members unlimited access to thousands of options. Start a trial here before committing

Parents can set controls like time limits and content filters, and personalize the experiences of each child profile. It’s available on Fire Tablets (books, videos, apps), Echo (audio), Kindle eReaders (books), and Android phones and tablets (books, videos). 

Free Amazon Music streaming and discounted Amazon Music Unlimited

prime music

Amazon Music is a benefit of your Prime Membership that features a growing selection of 2 million songs, playlists, and stations that you can listen to ad-free and on-demand. If you want to expand your options, Amazon Music Unlimited ($7.99 per month) has a larger library of tens of millions of songs and podcasts you can download for offline listening on any device. Depending on your own preference, Amazon Music Unlimited might be a better deal than popular choices like Spotify Premium ($9.99 per month). You can find a trial here to determine which one is better ultimately for you.

Save 50% on Prime with access to a university.edu email or as a qualifying customer with an EBT or Medicaid card

''po'p[

If you have access to a .edu email and haven’t yet become a member with it, you can get a six-month trial of Prime Student at no cost and then pay 50% less than other Prime users ($6.49 per month or $59 per year) after the trial ends for four years or until your indicated graduation date — whichever comes first.

Prime is also discounted ($5.99 per month) for qualifying customers with an EBT or Medicaid card

Prime Student (medium)

Free standard shipping and returns on Shopbop, East Dane, and Woot!

Screen Shot 2018 05 02 at 12.29.12 PM

Your shipping benefits are key, and they extend beyond Amazon.com. You can get free standard shipping by signing into your Amazon account while shopping at Shopbop, East Dane, and the flash deals at Woot! as well.

Prime Gaming live video streaming and viewing

Twitch TV Amazon Prime Benefits

With Prime Gaming, Amazon Prime members enjoy tons of free, exclusive content for your favorite PC, console, and mobile games. Prime members get a free Twitch channel subscription (starting at $4.99 per month otherwise) and a collection of PC games every month that you can keep forever. 

 

Time

Perhaps the biggest (and most valued) thing you will save with Prime is time. With same-day delivery, Prime members can get millions of items in 47 metropolitan areas. 

And if you find yourself waiting in lines for new video game releases, you’ll save even more with free release-date delivery on new video games, books, music, and movies if you can wait until 7 p.m. day-of for delivery.

In select cities, you can even enable Amazon Key in-home delivery, so you don’t even need to be home to bring your packages indoors. It’s a secure in-home delivery on millions of eligible items. It’s possible with the Amazon Key Home Kit ($219.99), which can also be used normally to schedule home access for guests, friends, and family. Eligible shoppers can also get packages delivered to their garage or car when it’s parked in a publicly accessible area.

Best tech and gaming deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021

Outside of Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day is when we see the steepest discounts on TVs, speakers, headphones, laptops, computers, games, and, of course, Amazon-branded devices.

Like last year, we don’t see any discounts on the still-scarce Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. However, we found a ton of discounts on peripherals, like controllers, as well as some games. During the duration of Amazon Prime Day, Nintendo is dropping the price on several digital games through its eShop during its Digital Deals event.

PC gamers can find deep discounts on monitors, mice, mechanical, and keyboards. However, don’t expect to find any graphics cards on sale – those, too, are also in short supply.

We’re seeing popular brands like Razer, Steelseries, and Logitech drop prices on their gaming products to all-time lows during Prime Day 2021.

Frequently asked questions

When is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Amazon’s annual Prime Day event kicked off today, June 21. The shopping event finishes up today on June 22. But don’t worry if you can’t shop during that time – we expect to see several discounts last a few days after the end of Amazon Prime Day.

What is Amazon Prime Day 2021?

For the unfamiliar, Amazon Prime Day 2021 is an exclusive shopping event for the site’s 150-million-plus Prime subscribers. Introduced in 2015 in part to celebrate Amazon’s 20th anniversary, the first Amazon Prime Day was a one-day-only retail holiday for Prime members that sought to overtake Black Friday as the sales event of the year.

During Amazon Prime Day 2021, we’re seeing prices to drop to all-time lows, beating out prices we see over Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The sale covers every product category Amazon offers: tech, beauty, home, kitchen, fashion, and smart home. So far, we’re already seeing all-time lows and great prices on everything, from headphones and fitness trackers to iPads and Instant Pots.

A Prime membership costs $13 a month or $119 a year and delivers other benefits, like free two-day shipping, rewards at Amazon stores like Whole Foods, and hundreds of streaming movies and TV shows from Prime Video. New subscribers can try Prime with a free 30-day trial and gain immediate access to Prime Day deals.

How to find the best Amazon Prime Day 2021 deals

If you want to shop during Amazon Prime Day 2021, bookmark the Amazon Deals Page. This is where Amazon will host all of its deals, alongside its limited-time Lightning deals.

In previous years, Amazon Prime Day deals have been time- and stock-sensitive. We’ve seen the best ones sell out quickly, restocked later in the day or on the second day. Some discounts will last through both days of the sales event, but others are exclusive to the first or second days.

While Amazon is the main destination for Amazon Prime Day deals, we know several retailers, including Target, Kohl’s, and Walmart, will be offering competing sales, with matching prices or additional bonuses.

Are Amazon Prime Day deals worth it?

For the most part, yes. Like Black Friday and Cyber Monday later this year, Amazon Prime Day often brings many terrific bargains on tech, home goods, smart home products, and outdoor gear.

Many of the deals we’ve seen match the best prices offered throughout the year. However, not all of the discounts will be worth your time. Before you buy, make sure to compare the prices with historical data with CamelCamelCamel and Amazon’s competition. Of course, we’ll evaluate all of the offers for you during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

How can I save more during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

There are several avenues to save during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

First, you can take advantage of the early offers made available by Amazon, such as buying from small businesses.

Second, Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Card or Amazon Prime Store Card cardholders can also earn 10% cash back on small business purchases during the duration of the ‘Spend $10, get $10’ promotion.

Amazon will likely offer increased cash back rewards on select items, so make sure to make your Amazon Prime Rewards card your default payment method.

Be sure to follow Insider Reviews on Facebook and Twitter, and bookmark our Amazon Prime Day page. During the lead-up and the sales event, our team of journalists will evaluate prices, compare competing sales, and highlight the best offers.

Also, make sure to sign up for our newsletter to get the best deals directly in your inbox.

Who can access Amazon Prime Day deals

Only Amazon Prime members can take advantage of this event. Signing up is easy, though, and a membership comes with many more benefits than just Prime Day deals access and free two-day shipping. New members can sign up for a free 30-day trial with full benefits before committing.

Last year, Prime members in the following countries participated in the event: the US, the UK, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Spain, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Brazil, Belgium, Austria, and Australia.

Where to find alternative sales during Amazon Prime Day 2021

Amazon Prime Day started as, unsurprisingly, an Amazon-centric sale event. Of course, that didn’t stop other retailers from offering their own competing sales.

In the past few years, retailers offering competing sales included Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Kohl’s, and Bed Bath & Beyond. This year should be no different. While we don’t expect any retailer to match the breadth of Amazon Prime Day offerings, we found that the retailers generally match some of the “doorbuster” sales on stuff like iPads and TVs, and there are some better offers, as well.

Walmart’s “Big Save Event” is live now, a day before Amazon Prime Day 2021, and lasts until June 23.

Target’s “Deal Days” event also live now and ends June 22. From what we saw last year, we can expect comparable discounts and matched prices. Whether you’re shopping for the latest tech or want to save on essentials, you can find bargains during Target’s Deal Days.

Best Buy’s “Bigger Deal Savings Event” is already underway until June 22 and includes up to $250 off select gaming laptops, up to 50% off small kitchen appliances, and up to $400 off select Samsung Galaxy phones. However, we expect even more deals in the coming days.

Kohl’s Wow Deals event will be held in-stores and online for the duration of Amazon Prime Day: June 21 through 22. Shoppers will earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent during the two-day event, and Kohl’s Card members will get an additional 15% off on Wow Deals sales and promotions.

Bed Bath & Beyond’s ‘Beyond Big Savings Event’ runs from June 20 to June 22. You can now save up to 50% on everything. For extra savings, get a one-year Beyond+ membership for $29 and enjoy 20% off and free standard shipping on all orders.

Which is better for deals: Amazon Prime Day or Black Friday?

It depends on what you’re shopping for.

Amazon Prime Day is, first and foremost, an Amazon event. This means Amazon Prime Day offers the best deals on Amazon products. So, expect to see deals on Amazon Echo smart speakers, Fire TVs and streaming devices, Kindle e-readers, Audible, and Amazon Music Unlimited subscriptions.

Black Friday, on the other hand, doesn’t “belong” to any particular store. This means that shoppers can expect sales and savings from more retailers, outside of those few that compete with Amazon during Prime Day.

Additionally, Prime Day is better for scoring deals on products selling for under $100 and products you’ll buy more than once per year, like clothing, food, and beauty products, while Black Friday is for once-a-year and rarer purchases like TVs, gaming consoles, and laptops.

How will Walmart Plus membership play into Amazon Prime Day 2021?

Right now, there aren’t any event-specific perks that Walmart Plus members will get. However, they will reap the same benefits they do year-round when shopping the sale, from free same-day delivery to gas discounts to the newly-added Rx for less.

If you’re interested in trying the membership, there’s a 15-day free trial. If you sign up now, you’ll be covered during the Deals for Days event.

Are there benefits to shopping from Walmart during Amazon Prime Day 2021?

The first major benefit to shopping from Walmart during Prime Day is that you don’t need a membership to get the deals. If you are already a member of Walmart Plus, then that means you can enjoy free two-day shipping on your orders.

Another perk is that Walmart has many physical stores where you can pick up your order if you don’t want to wait to receive your package at home.

Amazon Prime Day, on the other hand, is only for Prime members and access to the event is one of many membership benefits. Amazon offers a 30-day free trial if you want to access Prime Day deals, in addition to Walmart deals, this week.
