Save money with Amazon Prime

In our current vacation rental on Fripp Island in South Carolina we are a good distance from the nearest Walmart or grocery store.  There are some small stores nearby, but their inventory is limited.

So, we have used our Amazon Prime account quite a bit since we arrived here.  We still have to make the trips to the grocery, pharmacy, etc.  But, some things are just easier and often cheaper to order from http://www.Amazon.com .   If you have a prime account, then many of the items you order have free 2 day shipping.  As long as you do a little planning you can order necessities and have them delivered to you door for free.

For instance, today we found that we needed a cutting board, paper towels and another bottle of Pepcid.  We could make another trip to the store.  Or, I could do what I did and place an order with our Amazon Prime account and those items will be delivered in a couple of days with no shipping costs.

There are other benefits that come with a Prime account, but I’ll save those for another post.  After all, I can’t give away all of our tips in one post.  🙂
