Save $32 on Amazon Prime

I don’t know how I just caught wind of this when the Emmy’s were on Sunday…BUT, fear not, we have time to capitalize on this!

To celebrate Transparent (Amazon original series) winning 5 Emmy Awards, Amazon is offering an incredible deal on Friday, September 25th ONLY. New Amazon Prime members will only have to spend $67 for their first year  using Prime. Normally, this costs $99, so this is a $32 discount.

I’ve preached the perks to Prime to you all before:

  • Free 2-day Shipping
  • Unlimited Deliveries
  • Access to Prime Instant Video
  • Tons of Kindle Perks

Check out THIS PAGE on Friday to sign up for your discounted Prime. Don’t forget, you can always cancel if you don’t think this is worth $99/year next September, but I don’t think you will 🙂

FREE Ebook on Canning, Pickling, and Freezing

I see a lot of ebooks out there in the world every day that are free – if you aren’t aware of these resources, always check Amazon! A ton of ‘classics’ are free and they run a good deal of temporary promotions outside of these as well.

There’s one in particular that is being offered for a limited time. Canning, Pickling and Freezing with Irma Harding: Recipes to Preserve Food, Family, and the American Way is a book that is not only FREE right now, but one that will help you maintain some money-saving habits through the process of food preservation.

These days, canning preservation is not nearly as common as it was awhile back, but it’s an incredibly budget friendly way to maintain food.

Reviews look incredible – say that it is a must-read for canning newbies, and that the instructions make things sound super easy.

Check it out! Let us here know how you fare!

Umm…Amazon Prime Day?!

Why is today the first time I have heard about this?! Amazon Prime Day has officially started TODAY, July 15, 2015.

First and foremost, let’s talk Amazon Prime – is it worth it? $100 a year for the following:

  • FREE two-day shipping for eligible purchases (most things I’ve ever needed)
  • Unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video
  • Ability to borrow books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library

If you use Amazon enough (I sure do – anything from wedding and baby registries to dog food to household needs I will purchase via Amazon) – the free shipping enough will pay for itself and more – I can’t back this enough.


Amazon Prime

Moving on, today I heard, for the first time, about Amazon Prime DAY. UMM WHAT.


Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime day is the site’s way of premiering what they say are ‘more deals than Black Friday’ – exclusively for prime members. NBC News did some digging and highlighted the best savings so far – I certainly urge you to take a look – get ahead on holiday shopping, find convenient discounted birthday gifts, or hey, treat yourself!

Some really solid deals for all types of audiences. To read more, check out the full article here: Amazon Prime Day Highlights

Pro Tip: If you aren’t an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up for a FREE 30 Day Trial – that’d qualify you for the Prime Day eligibility. BUT – do NOT forget to unsubscribe if you aren’t feeling it – after 30 days you’ll get charged for the full year! Tread with caution 🙂
