There’s Still a Way to Ship Amazon Orders By Christmas and For FREE

I did the bulk of my Christmas shopping this year online, mostly by ordering through Amazon. I scrambled to get my orders in last week so that everything would arrive prior to Christmas, using free Super Saver Shipping. That window has closed, but Amazon still has another way to get your packages to you before Christmas and at no extra cost. Try out a month’s free trial of Amazon Prime.

I tested this service a few years ago and was quite pleased. It provides free 2-day shipping. Right now new subscribers can try out the service for free for one month. If you decide not to keep the service after the 30 days, you can easily manage your subscription through your Amazon account.

And don’t forget: you can always get a gift card!

Now if only they could send some little elves to wrap all this stuff for me!

Have you tried Amazon Prime? What did you think?

  1. I'm lovin' the amazon prime trial. I ordered presents for my niece and nephew yesterday afternoon, and the presents arrived at their house before noon today! Can't beat that.

  2. Katie @ goodLife {eats} says:

    I love amazon prime and to me it is well worth the price. So many times where I needed something fast!

  3. My trial just ended today and I've LOVED it for lots of Christmas shopping!! I didn't subscribe and pay the annual charge, but may consider it at some point in the future.

  4. okay I just need to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    I finally found National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (I swear I checked amazon back in Nov & there was a collector's edition for over $40—which I will not pay)
    I just found it in a 4pk of national Lampoon's movies for 17.99. & I want to renew my subscription to the oprah mag & that is $5 that ends today.
    PLUS I have $10 from Swagbucks (not sure how to get lots & lots of swagbucks, but $10 is nothing to sneeze at)
    So DH + me – swagbuck GC = $13 & no shipping cost


Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
