Ordering that works for me and a giveaway to boot!

Today's Works-for-me Wednesday post is all about ordering online and how I've made it work for me. I frequently use Amazon.com for everything from books to electronics and stuff in between. My best friend, the Queen B, told me about the "Amazon Prime" membership that you can sign up for to have everything shipped 2 day shipping for free. The membership itself costs $79.00 a year and in just a few short months, I've already made back my membership money in shipping.

Imagine purchasing your Christmas gifts online and saving money on shipping (exactly what the Queen B has done)!!! So, if you are interested, click here for more details.




And in honor of Amazon.com and the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival, I'm giving away a copy of the book Nobody by Creston Mapes that I mentioned in my Titles on Tuesday post this week. Just leave a comment and let me know whether or not you subscribe to this Amazon membership. I'll close the comments at 5 pm cst on Friday and will announce a winner sometime on Saturday. You don't have to be a blogger to enter, simply leave a comment and a way for me to get a hold of you should you be the winner.

I hope a random generator like the number 1! :) Anyway, to answer your question...no, I have not subscribed to the Amazon membership you mentioned. I didn't even know it existed. If we ordered more things from Amazon then it would totally be worth it! Maybe I'll look into it if/when our orders increase.

Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance! :)

I have not subscribed to the amazon membership, nor did i know it existed. Thanks for the great giveaway

Joy said...

I love Amazon but I have no signed up for this membership! I don't order enough for it to benefit me. But pretty soon here I'll probably need to order one! Two little girls need lots of stuff.

By the way, I'm an avid reader! But I only read Christian books. I'm so excited to see a Christian book on the list!

I don't subscribe to that membership but I do try and take advantage of their free shipping whenever possible. It's ok if it takes a little long if it saves us money on shipping.

I can be contacted through the URL I linked to my name. THANKS!

JL said...

I hadn't even heard of this membership at Amazon. Thanks for the heads up!

I don't have the Amazon membership, but I haven't ordered anything from Amazon. (I did sell a few books on Amazon.)

Gigi Lynn said...

I can't afford buying $79/year in books, much less in a membership fee. :(

Would love to win "Nobody," so please enter me in your drawing! Thank you!

Lesha said...

I wish I could afford the membership. I'm just an Affiliate Marketer for their store. ~lol~

Brooke Lorren said...

I don't subscribe to Amazon Prime, I usually just wait until I have $25 to spend on books and I get free shipping that way.

michelle said...

Thus far, I have never had to order anything so pressing, that I needed 2 day shipping (though it would be nice to get stuff faster). I usually just wait until I have a $25 order before I get anything, which isn't all that hard to accomplish. So, no, I don't have Amazon Prime yet. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

No, I do not subscribe to Amazon, but it sounds like a good thing to have.

Charmed said...

I didn't have a clue about the Amazon membership!

Enter me in the contest, please! I do not really order often enough from amazon to get my money back on that amazon membership.

Ronnica said...

I've never had the need to get my things fast than the free shipping for $25 purchase will get me. Maybe it's where I live, but I generally get things within 3 or 4 days if I go that way. I never pay for shipping, but things get to me fast!

COunt me in for a good book!

Sarah S. said...

I like the idea of the membership... I always order electronic things from Amazon because there is no tax and usually free shipping!

seven said...

No, I didn't know about it, but it sounds really interesting.

Tammy said...

I do not subscribe to the membership, I'm pretty patient when ordering things so usually just take the free plain shipping option and wait for it to come.

Mari said...

Never heard of it. It sounds like a great deal.

Audra Marie said...

I don't subscribe to the membership.

This book sounds good! :) Thanks. :)

We have the Amazon credit card and did a free Amazon Prime trial. It was fun while it lasted but I'm too cheap to renew it.

Sarah M said...

I don't subscribe, but this books looks VERY good. I'd love to add this to my collection. Thanks for a great giveaway.

I had not ever heard of the Amazon subscription before. I have, however, heard of Creston Mapes and am interested in reading this book. Thank you for the chance to win!

I don't order enough to be worth it

abrianna said...

No I am not an Amazon membership subscriber.

Carrie said...

I've only ordered off Amazon once in my life! I'm not a big online shopper. My books come from the library and I don't buy music. So, I didn't know about the offer...I will however tell my sister who frequents Amazon. Thanks for the offer, it looks like a good book.

frugallm said...

I usually wait and just do one big order that qualifies for super saver shipping. would love to read this book!

Jennifer Bogart said...

I am in Canada, so I just save up enough books for $39 for super saver shipping :). Sometimes we still order from .com for used books or truck manuals etc. Thanks for the contest!

Carolynn W. said...

I don't subscribe to Amazon but I LOVE Creston Mapes books! Please enter me!! Thanks for the chance to win!

I have not subscribed to the amazon membership. I will have to look into that.

Let me tell you... I thought it was the biggest rip off being $80 a year when they offer free shipping when you spend $25. But then I realized that I spend an extra $10 on stuff I don't really need just to get free shipping. We subscribed over a year ago and just renewed a few months ago. It's totally worth it and I love it!!

susan1215 said...

I love Amazon

LeeAnn said...

No, I don't use that, but I have a friend who's husband is in college and he's more than paid for the membership. Depends on your needs as to whether or not it's worth it.

Rebecca said...

I do not use this membership. Thanks for the great giveaway.

stampedwithgrace said...

I don't subscribe to the Amazon membership and didnt' know they had one.

Ginny said...

I use Amazon a lot, but I don't use it enough for that membership. It is good though if you would use it a lot.

Audrey said...

We only order from amazon a few times a year so this membership would not work for us, but what a great deal for those who order often.

Anonymous said...

I am not a subscriber but would like to read the book.

I order from amazon.com but not enough to make it worth the membership....yet. :)

Have fun with your giveaway. Don't forget to head on over to my blog and enter mine!
