Amazon Prime & Amazon Moms

If you order from Amazon a LOT, is it worth the $79 a year (or at least that's what I heard it cost, someone correct me if I'm wrong because I'm not 100% certain)? I signed up for the Amazon Moms thing, but I don't know a ton about it, but I know that I have a trial period for Amazon Prime with it. Anyone try both? What are the pros and cons of them? Thanks ladies! :)

  • no, unless you would spend that much in shipping costs over the course of a year. I just select super saver shipping and can still get pretty quickly, usually 5-8 days. IfI need something sooner, I periodically will use the free trial of prime, they offer it every time I place an order,then just cancel it.

  • Do you ever do the free super saver shipping? you should try it. As long as you spend $25.00 you can get free shipping

  • I don't think it makes a difference unless you want the added perks. with Amazon Mom you get a % off of certain things especially when you subscribe. I personally only order diapers and wipes so I don't use the Amazon Prime.

  • The shipping thing is why I'm asking, really. I probably spent $90 in shipping last year, maybe more, and this year I've already spent about $40. I usually order from Amazon a couple times a month, and it's always books (well, 99% of the time it is), and shipping for a book is $3.99 PER BOOK, so that adds up over time. I very, very rarely order one that qualifies for free shipping on orders over $25 because it's still usually cheaper to buy a book for less than $1 plus the shipping. But, with this trial of Prime, I've already saved like $20 on shipping costs, maybe more.

  • I've used super saver once or twice. I rarely have a large enough order to qualify anyway, and on top of that I rarely purchased things that would qualify unless it was going to work out cheaper than buying a used item and paying shipping (usually, ordering things like that is WAY cheaper, though).
