What is Amazon Prime? It is a means in which you can get free shipping on thousands of items offered on Amazon for $79 a year. But is it worth it? It all depends. I have been using Amazon Prime for the past few years and for me it has paid for itself. But my situation may differ from yours, since I have family and friends spread all over the country. For birthday and Christmas gifts I take full advantage of Prime and mail gifts several times a month or more.
