Amazon Prime lasts a year after joining the program and provides multiple services along with free shipping for products. Discounted shipping is available on the Amazon Pantry area of the site, which provides products typically found in grocery stores.
Other services provided by Amazon Prime include music streaming, free film and television streaming, unlimited photo storage, and a lending library for owners of the Kindle brand of tablet. For further free shipping, the program offers release-date shipping on select items, standard shipping that takes between four and five days for delivery, and no-rush shipping that provides additional perks as incentives for use. These perks often include credit towards the purchase of digital media, such as ebooks and the rental or purchase of movies, music or television episodes. Free shipping is not available for U.S. possessions, territories or protectorates, with the exception of Puerto Rico.Learn more about Corporations
