It wasn't worth it at the old price. Their streaming service is substandard and the "free" shipping is just added on to the price of the item.
I find for the small sum of $99/yr, it is VERY much worth it to me.
I like the 2x day shipping, and I do most of my shopping there online, rather than brick and mortar.
I really have been using Amazon Music to stream in my car lately.
I like the free eBooks I get monthly for reading.
I believe there is also free online storage you get for photos and something called Twitch.tv too, but I"ve not explored those yet.
I do shop around online for best prices, but most of the time, I find it at Amazon, and I have just enough patience for most things to get here in 2x days.
Their video streaming content is getting better, I have both it and Netflix....Netflix seems to have less and less and Amazon seems to be starting to have more and more movies I want to watch these days.
Again....$99 a year is nothing, as I mentioned elsewhere, I've had bar tabs that high, so for all that entertainment AND "free" 2x day shipping, it is more than worth it to me.
