The Amazon Prime Instant Video option gives members the ability to stream an unlimited number of movies and TV shows from either Amazon.com or the Amazon mobile app. The same streaming option is available with Prime Music. Kindle First customers have the ability to download a new book each month from a list of Kindle First Picks. Customers can also receive early access to new events on MyHabit.com and Amazon Lightning Deals.
Prime members also have the ability to share their membership and its benefits with four additional people, although these people do have to be in the same household. Amazon may also offer free trials for new customers who are interested in trying the service.Learn more about Coupons & Sales
