Amazon Prime is Awesome, and Now You Can Gift a Membership
For one, Prime offers instant streaming of over 41,000 movies and TV episodes through Primate Instant Video, along with over 350,000 books to borrow through the Kindle Owners' Lending Library. Secondly, Prime members receive unlimited free two-day shipping on over 15 million items.
"Members have told us they want to give the gift of Prime and we are delighted to offer this new capability in time for the holidays," said Greg Greeley, Vice President of Amazon Prime. "Our customers can now give the convenience of unlimited two-day shipping to family and friends - it's a gift that can be enjoyed all year long. When you add in the huge selection of popular movies, TV shows and Kindle books already included in the membership, giving Prime is giving a year’s worth of convenience AND entertainment."
An annual membership runs $79. If you're purchasing as a gift, head over to www.amazon.com/giftprime and fill in the requested info (recipient's email address and desired delivery date).
