Amazon Prime: Promotional Accounts!

Who doesn't love Amazon Prime? I know I do! And boy was I grateful to be able to get the discounted Prime program for $5.99/month (almost 1/2 off the normal price) this month. Since I had never heard of such a great option for the past 3 years I have had Medicaid, I figured I would share the other options you too might be able to enjoy!

1. EBT and Medicaid cardholders get a discount on Amazon Prime
** updated comments 8/19: forgive me for ever recommending this discount. yes it's a great savings BUT only applies to 1 person in a household so what if you have another member who wants to share your prime shipping. not a chance. and if you ask for customer service help online you'll be transferred to 4 different reps before the 4th rudely says "Even if I connect you to [my supervisor], he will inform you the same" and stays silent as you say goodbye and explain (rant) your disappointment. So disappointing and rude and horrible!! After all the $$ and years I have been a regular Prime member. Horrid!!!**
