There are definitely many pros and cons to having an Amazon Prime account. When we had 6 months free, I was definitely super happy about the free shipping option on any item I wanted and quick 2 day shipping, if needed. However, in our family, we have learned that the cost of the annual subscription does not justify the cost we would pay. It takes so little preparation and planning to wait til the cart is up to the $35 in order to receive the free shipping option. I believe it also saves us money in the long run because we have time to think about what we want before we hit that “check out” button. Quite often I find myself removing an item or two that we ended up not needing or found cheaper second hand.
