Amazon Prime Bonus Benefits

Amazon Prime has a lot more benefits than just free two day shipping.  I’ve found that a lot of friends have Prime, but don’t know that it includes a lot of free music, and tons of free movies and TV shows.  And if you don’t already have Amazon Prime, you can get a free one month trial.

Amazon Prime Music includes a wide variety of free music to stream or download to your mobile device via the Amazon Music App.

Amazon Prime also includes access to a wide variety of movies and TV series through streaming devices, including Kindles, Roku, smart TVs and the free Amazon Video app.  Some of my favorite free TV shows currently are The Good Wife, Downton Abbey, Philly, Dr. Who, Star Trek and many others.  Some great free movies currently include When Harry Met Sally, Amelie, Chocolat, Kate & Leopold, Shakespeare in Love, Gremlins, Crocodile Dundee, Pride & Prejudice (Keira Knightley), Spectre, The Rainmaker, Age of Adaline, Misery, The American President, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, and Notting Hill.  The free video options change periodically, so there are constantly new free videos.

Amazon has an email newsletter that you can subscribe to that sends you weekly updates of which videos are now free.  This week’s newsletter announced free horror movies and the movie Love & Friendship (Jane Austen story) are now free to Prime members among other videos.

There are also Facebook pages for Amazon Video and Amazon Music.

I often find free movies on Amazon that I had not heard of before but really enjoy.  Some recently movies are
Take Me Home – A woman asks a cab driver to take her cross country after catching her boyfriend cheating.  Comedy/Romance, PG-13.

Kinky Boots – After inheriting his father’s failing shoe factory, a man begins creating shoes for transvestites. Comedy/Drama, PG-13. (Not currently free on Prime.)

You can browse more free Prime videos on Amazon.

Enjoy the music and videos!
