Sprint Offers Amazon Prime Add-on for an Extra $11 a Month

Sprint is offering an Amazon Prime add-on to any current wireless plan, costing an extra $10.99 a month for those interested. When enabled on a plan, users can immediately gain the benefit of Prime, including free 2-day shipping on many items, access to Prime Video, Prime Music, and much more.

Interestingly, when doing the math, 12 months of this Amazon Prime add-on will cost you $132 annually, while an annual subscription to Amazon Prime directly purchased from Amazon is priced at $99. That’s a little over $30 extra you would be paying.  (more…)

DEAL: Amazon Prime Drops to $67 for 1-Day Only

It’s not often that you see a good Amazon Prime discount, but for 1-day only (that being today), you can grab a membership to Amazon for just $67. The price cut is as a nod to the 5 Emmy wins for Amazon’s show, Transparent.

As a reminder, Amazon Prime gets you free two-day shipping on many of their items and is generally the reason people sign up for it. It also gets you 1-day shipping for $3.99. It’s awesome. Along with the shipping goodness, Prime memberships also get access to Amazon’s video and music services, free books, and unlimited cloud storage.

Prime is normally $99 per year, so you are looking at a solid $32 discount today.

Check the calendar – not April 1, right? It’s hard to believe. For years, Amazon has kept Prime video from Android users outside of their own Kindle lineup. Who knows the reason, but that reason has come to pass.  (more…)

Not Android, but Awesome: Amazon Prime Air Wants to Deliver Packages to You in 30 Minutes Using Drones

Life would probably be a lot less awesome if Amazon’s Prime service did not exist. Forget the streaming video part of it all, I’m talking specifically about its free 2-day and low-priced 1-day shipping options when you become a subscriber. I probably can’t even put into words how much I rely on Amazon for personal and professional items to be delivered within a day or two at such low rates. But what if we could get those same items even faster? Amazon is going to try with a new program called Amazon Prime Air that uses drones for delivery. Yes, drones.  (more…)
