Optimus … Err, Amazon Prime
Our founding editor does not have an Amazon Prime account. He has a beat up old Optimus Prime … somewhere … (maybe). His wife – the lovely Mrs. Sic Willie – is an Amazon Prime subscriber, though, and she swears by the service.
Amazon Prime – which costs $79 a year – is the online retailer’s effort to build brand loyalty in an increasingly crowded online marketplace. And if you buy a lot of stuff from Amazon, it makes sense to have it. Prime members get free two-day shipping (which is where you make most of your money back), discounts on “prime-eligible” items, free eligible e-books and huge discounts on open box or return items.
Prime members also get unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shoes with “prime instant video” which you can run through your WiFi Blu Ray machines (as Mrs. Sic does).
Like lots of websites, this one has entered into an affiliates arrangement with Amazon … however we’ve yet to really take it out for a spin (fearing the over-commercialization of our content). However we have no problem commending Amazon Prime to your attention … especially if you have the sort of online spending habit Mrs. Sic does.
