My New BFF – Amazon Prime

by Joan on October 25, 2010

The joys of ordering on Amazon! Since I despise shopping in all forms, the ability to shop in my PJs from the comfort of my own home is appealing.

Since I’m a frugal (read CHEAP) shopper,  always looking for the best deals, my brain has a hard time paying for shipping. On Amazon,  I’ll wait to make a purchase, saving a $10 item in my shopping cart for weeks, until I have enough items to qualify for their “$25 purchase and shipping is free” deal.  And since I’m a TOTAL instant gratification kinda girl, I often schlep into town to purchase the item because I don’t want to wait.

That’s all a distant memory, since I signed up for Amazon Prime.

For $80 a year every item on Amazon with the “Prime” designation is shipped in two days to my house.  This has COMPLETELY changed my shopping habits.  I buy all kinds of things from Amazon now.  Bottle brush for rain gauge – $4, here in two days.  New vacuum – click, here in two days.  Gentle Leader harness for Keela – you got it, click and it’s here on Wednesday.

Since I am frugal cheap, I was hesitant to spend the eighty bucks, but they have a free 30 day offer to try it out and I was hooked immediately.  It has saved me untold hours of driving into town trying to find one little item.  And even I can wait two days for something to arrive.

With Amazon Prime I’m a happy shopper, and I’m doing my part to keep the economy going and the FedEx man employed.  It’s all good!
