Life gets pretty darn hectic with a family. And if you’re looking for a household subscription service to ease a massive load, Amazon Prime is about to become your new best friend.
Amazon Prime caters perfectly to busy families. It’s an entertainment platform of epic proportions, a store that sells everything from coffee to cricket bats – and best of all, it’s a place that helps you save cash by dishing up some of the best deals in the entire country (trust us, we’ve nabbed a few!).
There are streaming services, and then there’s Amazon Prime. It’s the one membership in Australia that goes beyond entertainment to be your to-go hub for almost anything. It’s quick, it’s convenient, and best of all, it’s really cheap!
Why We’re Crushing Hard On Amazon Prime
We chatted to a member of our team and busy mum-of-two about why she rates Prime as an absolute must-have in 2023. Check out what she has to say:
Amazon Prime is AMAZING for books!
“My daughter and I are serious bookworms and one of the things I love most about Prime is that I can buy new-release books at the lowest price in the country and have them delivered to my door the very next day. Great for when you need to get your hands on a sequel FAST! The huge library of FREE e-books is fab for when we travel and would rather take the Kindle than physical books.”
Saving money with Amazon Prime
“Prime Day is amazing for saving cash. I buy a lot of Christmas presents at this event – and best of all, they all get delivered to my door the next day at absolutely no extra cost. I always do my research when it comes to prices, and Amazon is usually the cheapest around.”
Buying cheaper groceries in bulk with Amazon Prime
“I really struggle carrying heavy groceries at the supermarket, like bulk water bottles and laundry detergent etc. But thanks to my Prime membership, I now order them online and have them delivered FREE! Saves my shoulders and back – and usually saves me cash, too.”
Prime Video is our TV go-to
“Prime Video is brilliant. We also have Netflix, but Prime is watched just as much, if not more, in our house. There are loads of binge-worthy exclusives that you can’t find elsewhere, like Nine Perfect Strangers and Little Fires Everywhere. We love it.”
“I would actually be lost with our Prime membership. Between work and the kids, I’m too busy to get to stores anymore. Prime means I can get my hands on what we need fast without battling traffic and looking for a park.”
“Low prices, free next-day delivery AND Prime Video for $6.99 a month? It’s a total no-brainer to me.”
