Amazon has become synonymous to our next-door department store serving all our needs, ranging from electronics and hardware equipment to everything necessary for the bathroom or kitchen. In recent years, Amazon Prime has grown considerably in the nation, gaining millions of customers and a huge portion of the e-commerce market. And honestly, they do a terrific job!
Amazon started its prime membership in 2005 and it gained a lot of traction. In 2016, they launched it in India too and what’s more surprising was their pricing. Worldwide annual subscription for Amazon prime costs around the 99 USD mark, but in India it’s a complain bargain coming only at INR 999 per year.
If that’s not enough to get you hooked on to an Amazon Prime membership account, let me take you through the plethora of advantages you have as a prime customer.
- Priority shipping: Okay, maybe they won’t be able to deliver everything in a day now, due to the pandemic. But under normal circumstances, Amazon Prime is capable of shipping your products to you on the same day you have ordered or a 1-day/ 2-day delivery scheme.
- Kindle: If you are a reader, you will love this! If you have a Kindle supported device, like a phone, tablet or a computer, you can choose to read by renting from a nearly unlimited collection of books.
- Prime Music: Yes, in addition to the above, you have subscribed automatically to Prime music, which is music subscription provider. It has over 60 million tracks, so you will find whatever suits your taste. Along with that, it has pre-built playlists such as English chartbusters, Hindi chartbusters and playlists according to various moods as well!
- Prime Video: We kept the big hitter for the end. You are also enrolled in the Prime video subscription as well that has a huge collection of movies, TV shows of various genres and Prime exclusives offerings as well. Titles are available at SD and HD and a select few are available at 4k too – if you have the hardware to support it.
