Amazon Gift Registry

I’ve personally been an Amazon Prime Member for so many years I can’t even remember.

I started with a free 30 day trial and was hooked. (And this was even before all the great perks they have now!)

There is so much more available to you with an Amazon membership than you may realize. The annual fee gives you great perks that many people (including myself) forget to use!

The Best Amazon Prime Perks for your Wedding

Free 2 Day Shipping

This is the main reason people pay for a Prime membership.  You can get free shipping on thousands of items, which would not ship for free if your purchased them through other companies.  

Standard shipping can run up to $10 per order, depending on weight.  If you make just 12 orders a year, your membership is paid for itself.

You’ll be amazed at how many wedding items you’ll end up buying on Amazon, and you’ll save more on shipping costs by using Amazon Prime.

Free shipping obviously comes in handy throughout the year too, including holidays, last minute birthday party invites, and when you just really don’t want to make the drive to Target for a roll of duct tape.

You can also have gifts shipped directly to the recipient. 

Wedding Gift Registry

Amazon is the perfect place to start a wedding gift registry. It’s convenient for guests who can’t make it to the wedding or don’t want to travel with a gift. 

You can add Amazon products AND items from other websites to your registry!

You’ll get up to 20% off products that are on your registry that guests didn’t purchase.

Free Movies and TV Shows

Amazon offers original TV shows and movies, and is the only place where you can watch series like “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”, “Homecoming”, and “The Man in the High Castle”.

You can also watch thousands of other movie and TV show favorites with unlimited streaming. There’s great older movies and they’re always adding new releases too!

Free Books

Prime members get unlimited access to more than a thousand eBooks, popular magazines, comics, books with Audible narration and more with Prime Reading. If you don’t have a Kindle, you can read on the free Kindle app on your tablet or phone.

Free Music

Stay on top of your favorite music, old and new, with access to 2 million songs with no ads! Access them on nearly any device, including your phone and smart TVs.

Instant Savings on Subscribe & Save Products

It seems like every day I am adding a new household product to the grocery list, whether it’s paper towels, laundry detergent, hand soap, or something else I could probably live without.

You’ll find coupons on many of these household items which will save you money. You also can instantly save 5% on the list price when you sign up for Subscribe & Save.

If you purchase 5 Subscribe & Save items in a single month, your savings will increase to an additional 20% off the total purchase! They will wait and ship all of your items at one time, which means you may need to plan ahead to get the things you need.

Daily Deals

Great prices on Amazon aren’t just saved for Prime Day every year. You’ll get hooked checking out the Daily Deals page to see what you can grab for a great discount, but hurry – they’re typically one day only sales!

Amazon Family

If you have little ones in diapers, you can really save on your purchases if you belong to Amazon Family.  As a Prime member, you can access additional savings including an extra 15% off of diapers and wipes — for a total discount of 20%!

If you purchase 5 or more items using Subscribe & Save, your savings increases from 5% to 20%.  

And don’t forget about the amazing Amazon Baby Registry!  When you join, you get additional discounts of up to 15% off of registry completion items. You also get up to 90 days of FREE returns!  Learn more and create your own Baby Registry.

Amazon Prime Benefits Overview

If you aren’t ready to pay for the annual fee, you can pay just $12.99 per month instead (current pricing as of August 2020).  

You’ll end up paying more over the course of a year however, this is a great way to get this service over the holidays or throughout your wedding planning.  

If you plan to make many Amazon purchases, the free shipping alone my pay for itself during this time of the year.

Best of all, you can try Amazon Prime for free for 30 days so you can see what you think before you opt in.
