Amazon has “advanced” memberships that give you a lot of benefits and you can try each one out with their FREE membership trial period.
Here are the different types of Amazon memberships:
1) None – that’s what you get when you just sign up; check out the other “advanced” memberships which will save you big bucks
2) Prime – this is what I have and I use the hell out of it and save a ton of money each year
3) Student – this is 1/2 the cost of Prime but is limited to folks with an “.edu” eMail address.
4) Mom – this is a special membership geared towards moms and caregivers
If you don’t sign up for the other three memberships you are this level – none. It’s FREE all the time.
