Amazon Prime Day has passed but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Amazon Prime isn’t a great investment for those who are looking to save money.

Amazon Prime Is Still Great Even After Prime Day

I don’t know if anyone else out there took advantage of any specials on Prime Day but I sure did. As most of you know, a couple of months ago I moved into a one bedroom apartment. I have been trying to furnish this place without breaking the bank. That task is actually quite daunting. I’m coming off of a marriage and basically restarting my life over again. I had a few big ticket items: a couch, chase, mattress, desk, dresser, and bookshelf. But there were a few “needs” that I wanted. I recently purchased a television (and as of this publication date) that is still sitting on the floor. Needless to say, as a guy in my mid-thirties, it feels like I’m coming out of college. At least this time I have a decent job to help me pay for things (with the college debt already included, ha).


Anyways, I found (what I think is an awesome) TV console off of Amazon that was over sixty percent off. I found this exact brand on some other websites like Target that had listed the price at around $250. Thanks to Amazon Prime I was able to get it for $90 AND free shipping. While I was at it, I also purchased a much needed coffee tumbler.

There are those people trying to save money that may not be wanting to shell out the annual price for an Amazon Prime membership. I can understand that. It can be a big sum of money to add on to a monthly bill. But, it’s only one time a year. There are so many other perks included with it such as television and movies (say good-bye to cable). If you haven’t considered picking up an Amazon Prime membership, I really encourage you to think about it. Amazon is an enormous warehouse with just about every kind of product you can imagine. Most products through Amazon are cheaper than you would find in a retail store and with free shipping.

Now, on to the next apartment item: a bed so I can get my mattress up off the floor.
