If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that I adore Amazon. I’ve been a Prime member for a few years now and absolutely love it. I do a lot of my regular shopping there and for scrapbook/Project Life scrapping, it’s awesome! They run deals all the time on things like page protectors, albums, Project Life sets, and scrapbook kits.

And y’know when you’re online scrapbook shopping and you find something you really want but the shipping (especially on bulky items like albums, protectors, and 12×12 paper) puts you off the purchase? With Amazon, I never worry about that. Not only will the shipping be free but it’ll arrive within a few days. That’s saved me a few times when I needed something before a crop or for a specific project I was gung-ho to finish.

When I first joined, Amazon Prime cost $75/year but it now costs $99/year. Well, for TODAY ONLY, new members can sign up for AMAZON PRIME for only $72!!

Here are the benefits:

FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items
Unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs
Instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video
Free unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive
Read free books each month through Kindle First and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library

I haven’t tried out the free photo storage yet but it seems like another great selling point for scrapbookers. The more places you can have your photos backed up, the better, right?

What I’ve found is that – with the money I save on shipping and Kindle books alone – the membership more than pays for itself (that’s how I justify my Costco Executive Membership, too).

This is a unique offer from Amazon, one that I’ve not see before, so I wanted to share in case you’ve been thinking about trying out Prime. Here’s a great incentive to try it.

Enjoy your Saturday :)

PS: If you’re an EXISTING Prime member like me, try contacting Amazon to ask if you can receive a renewal for $72. Word on the street is that they may tell you no but then credit your account for the $27 difference just for asking. Let me know how it goes!
