This Will Make Your Holiday Shopping Fast and Easy (I LOVE this)

I remember when I was trying so desperately to become pregnant, the last thing I wanted to do was put on a happy face and see the happy crowds (often with babies or children) at the mall all doing their holiday shopping. Being able to avoid this and get your shopping done from the comfort of your own home can be a lifesaver.   And that lifesaver can be found this holiday season with a FREE TRIAL of Amazon Prime!  

If you never heard of it or are not yet a member of Amazon Prime, you are missing out on a spectacular service, but the BEST part is you can sign up right now for a FREE, NO STRINGS ATTACHED 30 day Trial and get all your holiday shopping done for FREE 2 day delivery!  I know it sounds too good to be true,  so read on... I wish it had been available when I was dealing with my fertility struggle.

I discovered Amazon Prime about this time last year when a friend recommended it to me. Here are the basics. Amazon Prime charges an annual fee (you pay nothing for the trial) and you get the following benefits….FREE 2-day shipping on all "prime" eligible items (most are), FREE video streaming of movies and TV shows, and a FREE Kindle ebook to read once a month.

When I discovered that it cost $79 to pay for the membership I initially thought it was too expensive and not worth it since you can usually get free shipping if you purchase over $25 worth of stuff all at once.

But here's what happened…
My son was invited to a friend's birthday party and I forgot to purchase him a gift. The party was 2 days away and it was a cold, rainy day outside and I really did NOT want to make a trip to Walmart or the toy store to get one. I knew there was not enough time to purchase something on Amazon using the free shipping method and I did not plan to spend over $25 anyway. The 2-day shipping costs were ridiculously high.

I was wishing I had an Amazon Prime membership but still wasn't sure if it would be worth it for me.

And then I discovered I could SIGN UP FOR A FREE TRIAL PRIME MEMBERSHIP FOR 30 DAYS and easily cancel after!!!

I decided this was great, since I could get the birthday gift in time, and try out the membership for a month to see if it was really worth it.


Because the Christmas Holidays were approaching, I had a lot of shopping to do. I always liked purchasing on Amazon because it saved me time from going out…saved me gas driving to stores…and best of all I could do it in my pajamas at night from the comfort of my couch!! While I always thought Amazon offered great prices which were often cheaper even than Walmart, I hated paying shipping costs, or having to bundle a bunch of items in order to qualify for the free shipping. (must spend at least $25).

So after I purchased the birthday present I needed, I spent the next 30 days ordering everything I needed on Amazon instead of driving to a store. At first it was a little hard getting used to purchasing small items I never would have ordered before (due to high shipping costs). But then, I got used to it and it was FANTASTIC.

For example, I purchased a pack of underwear for my son…a dog collar for my new puppy…a bag of dog food that was too heavy to carry from a store…a package of pens for my daughter…hair clips…hair care products…and the list goes on and on. Some of these items cost less than $5.00 and the shipping would have been higher than the cost of the item if it weren't for Amazon Prime. The prices were just as good if not better than if I went to a store, and I got delivery in 2 days (sometimes overnight!). I couldn't have been happier.

I then ordered 95% of my Christmas gifts just using the FREE TRIAL MEMBERSHIP and I saved a TON OF MONEY. I also avoided the crowds…was able to read reviews to see which items were popular, and finished all my shopping ahead of time!

When my 30 day trial finished, I did not even hesitate to purchase the annual program. And I will continue to renew it every year as it ends up saving me a lot of time and money…I cannot recommend it more highly.

I wanted to let you know that you can sign up for a 30 day trial right now if you don't have it yet, and you can use it for yourself AND purchase any/all of your holiday gifts in the next month. You can cancel it after 30 days (it is very easy to do this) or you can decide to keep it if you love it as much as I do.

Either way, there is no reason not to sign up and give it a try for 30 days since it is FREE TO DO SO!
