Morning Coffee: I'm loving Amazon Prime

I joined Amazon Mom at the beginning of last month for the free Prime membership when we bought the Cisco-Valet Plus Wireless Router and wanted to get it quickly. I hadn't realized how nice it is to get two-day shipping on everything, regardless of the cost - no more finding something on someone's wish list that would make a nice filler to get to $25 for free shipping. I don't think I'll pay for Prime when my free membership expires, but I sure am going to miss it!

There's a 4-day sale at Rite Aid that started yesterday and goes through Saturday. Common Sense with Money has some match ups.

    Question about supporting you through Amazon purchases- if I buy ANYTHING through one of your Amazon links, you get credit, right? Thanks!

    @Jamie - Yup! Thank you so much! :)

    One cool thing about Amazon Prime is that you can share it between 5 family members/friends. So if you get 5 family members to go in and purchase an account together you pay only $15 for a year of free shipping.

    Prime rocks. We love ours. Two day shipping sometimes ends up being less than 24 hours. It's crazy.

    @Amber - I didn't know that, but that's awesome! Thanks for letting us know!

    @MBH - Less than 24 hours? I wonder if you are close to a warehouse, because I've never gotten anything that quickly.
