What benefits do you get with Amazon Prime?  And which one did Amazon take away?

Get your Prime hacks here.

What is the price of convenience? It’s $119 a year, if you pay for an annual subscription to Amazon Prime. (Otherwise you pay) $13 a month. And students get a discount.) The benefits are well worth it. Of course, you’re probably familiar with Amazon’s free two-day shipping option. But depending on where you live, you can also get free one-day delivery, same-day delivery, and even two-hour delivery. The delivery benefits alone are reason enough to become an Amazon Prime member, but the benefits don’t stop there.

As an Amazon Prime member, you get discounts at Whole Foods, lower prices on prescription drugs, free grocery delivery, and access Prime Video and Prime Music, where you can watch the latest movies or listen to new albums.

Here are the best Prime membership perks you might not know about — and one that Amazon recently took away. And watch this one Black Friday Deals
for the big shopping day.

1. Exclusive Whole Foods Discounts

While Whole Foods deliveries now come with a $10 fee (they used to be free for members), there are other ways to save on organic fruits and vegetables. There are also free hourly pick-ups, depending on your location – don’t forget to check in with the Amazon app to see if you need to enter the store.

There are a few other benefits of Whole Food for Prime members. Blue tags indicate a sale exclusively for Prime members, while yellow tags mean an additional 10% off an item that is already on sale. This is what you get discounts on weekly bestsellers, including produce, packaged goods and beauty products, but note that alcohol is excluded.

You can also use the Whole Foods Market App at checkout to get exclusive Prime discounts on select products. The few cents saved on items may seem insignificant, but the savings add up in the end. But there are others Delivery options for Amazon groceries if you don’t want to pay the extra fee.

2. Free Amazon Fresh Delivery

Another grocery delivery option for Prime members is: Amazon Fresh. You can replenish your pantry directly from Amazon. But instead of paying $10 for grocery delivery at Whole Foods later this month, you can get free delivery on orders over a certain amount (depending on where you live).

You can also use the service to get discounts when you order more or when you set up automatic delivery plans for certain items and save even more for future deliveries. In addition, some items, such as fruit snacks and cookies, qualify for SNAP.

3. Amazon Pharmacy Two-Day Delivery and Discounts

If you regularly refill at least one prescription, Amazon’s Pharmacy may be a more convenient choice. In addition, Prime members may receive lower drug prices. Amazon will transfer your prescriptions and pharmaceutical help is available 24/7. The pharmacy works with most insurance plans, but is now available in 45 states.

4. Try Amazon’s Personal Shopper Program

Prime members can order clothes for their next outing with Try Prime before you buy (the name has changed from Prime Wardrobe). Here’s how it works: Choose up to eight items — clothing, shoes, or accessories. Keep them for up to seven days to see if you like them. Send back for free what you don’t like and only pay for what you keep.

And you can try the styling service for in-person help starting at $5 a month. If you’re not sure which clothes or shoes qualify, look for the “Try before you buy” icon.

5. Amazon Gift Cards When You Trade In Used Electronics

Amazon takes the train to the sustainability station and you can benefit immediately. Of Amazon trade-in, you can return your used electronics in exchange for Amazon gift cards. Be sure to check each product’s eligibility – some trade-in options are only available for a limited time.

6. Discounts and guarantees on second-hand products

Amazon renewed gives you access to products that may have been opened, but not used by the original owners – or refurbished. Amazon assures that these used items will work and look like new, with the Amazon Extended Warranty. There are several products and brands available, even from Apple and Vitamix.

7. Amazon Warehouse Savings on Almost Everything

Amazon Warehouse sells as new or used items returned by customers. Some products have the box opened only by the original purchasers before being returned unused for resale at a discount. While there is no regular manufacturer’s warranty on these products, they are backed by Amazon’s 30-day RETURN POLICY and 90 days renewed item return policy.

8. Overflowing Amazon Outlet Items

The Amazon Outlet has overstock items and other products at discounted prices. As with an outlet, you’ll find premium brands and items under $10 ranging from home furniture to clothing and pet supplies. Keep in mind that while the online shopping experience is convenient, just like an outlet, the best deals take a while to find. Fortunately, you can do it from the couch.

9. Limited Time Lightning Deals All Year Round

Amazon’s Lightning Deals are a promotion where a product or service is on sale for a short period of time or until it is sold out. You can find them everywhere on the site, but especially on Prime day and in Today’s Deals. On Prime Day, Lightning Deals are for Prime members only.

There is one lightning deal per customer until the promotion ends or all deals are gone claimed by other buyers. You can join a waiting list for a deal, but keep in mind that these discounts are extremely time sensitive, so grab them quick. Unless you refresh the page over and over, these deals aren’t necessarily the way to find something specific due to their volatile nature and limited availability.

10. 5 GB of storage with Amazon Photos

Amazon’s online photo and video shoebox offers secure and unlimited full-resolution photo storage plus 5 GB of video for Prime members. To use this feature, you can choose to upload media manually or automatically in the Amazon Photos App. You can personalize the displays on Amazon devices like Fire TV, Echo Show, and Fire tablets as long as you have the app.

And with the Family Vault benefit, up to five family members can share the same subscription. If you want more, there are paid plans available. If you choose to switch — which can be done anytime — there’s a 100 GB option for $2 per month and a 1 TB plan for $7 per month.

For more, here are the latest on the new Amazon Fire Tablet, the Amazon glow for kids and the new Halo View fitness tracker.

When a staff shortage closed the dining room of her favorite restaurant, a retiree grabbed an apron to help






By Will Cadigan, CNN

When the dining room of an Ohio great-grandmother’s favorite restaurant closed due to staff shortages, she grabbed an apron without hesitation.

“I was here on opening day and was a regular,” Bonnie August, 81, told CNN at the Culver’s restaurant in Findlay. “I have my favorites for custard, I think we all have that. And I look at the flavor of the day and make a list and pick those days to meet up with friends.”

Danielle Doxsey, owner of the franchise store, said an influx of business and a shortage of staff forced her to close the dining room. “We didn’t want to overwhelm the staff,” she explained.

But that just didn’t sit well with Bonnie. “I don’t like to eat in my car,” she commented. “They should just open up.”

So she decided to do something about it. ‘I walked to the door,’ said Bonnie, ‘and Dani came to the door and said, ‘Oh Bonnie, I’m sorry, we’re not open.’ And I said, ‘I know. I want to apply.'”

Bonnie is a great-grandmother who previously worked in a factory after her husband was injured. “I just went to that factory and asked if I could fill out an application,” she said, “And they called me and asked me if I could start on the third shift Sunday night. And I said that would be perfect. I wanted to work , so I was available to my kids all day long. … So midnight worked great.”

Since she retired in 2009, she’s frequented her local Culver’s with friends and family, so she knew she had to help.

“I know the owner’s grandparents, parents and them, and they are wonderful, wonderful people and I wanted to help them, which is the main reason I came here,” emphasized Bonnie. “Just to help them stay open or open up.”

In many communities, the pandemic economy has endangered the future of local restaurants. One of the biggest problems facing businesses like the Culver’s franchise in Findlay is the labor shortage. According to the Labor Statistics Bureau, there were 10.4 million job openings across the country in September and only 6.5 million hired.

Since the start of the pandemic, millions of workers retired from the workforce, meaning workers still looking for a job now have choices when it comes to their jobs, and it shows: A record 4.4 million Americans quit their jobs in September.

That’s where the hidden helpers of the pandemic, like Bonnie, have emerged.

“My job posting says runner,” she said, “I don’t run anymore, I just rush as fast as I can. … It’s just walking, taking the orders, taking the bag and walking to the car and giving it to the people and chat to see if I can make them laugh.”

Bonnie said her return to work came as a shock to her friends and family.

“Well, first they asked me if I was crazy. “You’re not going to work anymore.” And I said, well, I am for a while. … I know that if there’s any way I can help, it’s what I need to do.”

Doxsey agreed that Bonnie isn’t looking for extra attention. “She’s doing it because she really wants us to do good, and she wants to see us bloom,” she said. “She just really wants to help and that’s all she cares about.”

Bonnie said she hopes her story can inspire other hidden helpers to give back to the things they love. “Jump into the water. It can be fun,” she says. “If you have the opportunity to give back, give back. We got so much.”
