5 Reasons Why Amazon Prime Is Worth The Investment

The Amazon Prime Logo

When Amazon Prime was first introduced in the UK they offered free next day delivery on qualifying items for £49 per year. For most people there simply wasn’t enough benefit to justify the cost. A couple of years ago they combined Prime with Lovefilm and put the charge up to £79 per year. Still, arguably, for many it wasn’t worth the investment.

Now they have added more benefits and in certain circumstances you could save a great deal of money.

Did you know that Prime free next day delivery is valid to any address? As long as the order comes from your account you can have the item sent anywhere in the UK.

This is particularly useful for birthday and Christmas presents which can otherwise cost a fortune in postage. While the Amazon wrapping price is a bit steep you should still save money. If it’s a friend who won’t mind why not do away with gift wrapping altogether?

No. 2 – A growing catalogueAn image of data streaming

When Lovefilm was rebranded as Prime Video, the catalogue of films and television programmes on offer dramatically expanded to ensure it is a worthwhile investment for lots of people, especially if you have children as many Disney films and popular television programmes like Peppa Pig are now included.

As long as any device you use is linked to the Prime account you should have no trouble accessing the service.
