It’s as if Amazon and I had a talk and planned to have Amazon Prime Day on my Techie Tuesday. For those who are not already an Amazon Prime Member click “Learn more about Amazon Prime” to discover all the amazon benefits.
Amazon Prime is a blessing for everyone from moms and dads to college students and professionals, saving you not only money but more importantly, time! The biggest benefit of Amazon Prime is 2 day shipping which seems to be getting faster and faster every time I order something. Seriously! Soon it will show up on my doorstep the minute I hit purchase. When I first subscribed to Amazon Prime a few years back I was hesitant because I really didn’t order much. Little did I know how much I would order and actually use it now. Besides the amazingly quick delivery, there are a ton of Prime benefits most of which I don’t even use to their full potential. Here is a quick overview of the benefits or you can just find out more and try Prime for free here.

The two Prime benefits I use the most is the free 2 day shipping and Prime Photos which you can learn all about that in a previous post I wrote on Amazon Photos. Real quick, the Amazon Photos app is amazing as you get UNLIMITED (did I mention UNLIMITED) photo storage for all your photos and videos. That’s right! You can also turn on the auto uploader so that you are always backing up your photos and videos to the app. You can now easily create albums and share or re-download the files. This benefit alone is worth the annual subscription to Amazon Prime. I’ve used Amazon Video a few times; it’s nice to have in addition to my Netflix. But really for me it’s been all about Amazon Prime shipping and Amazon Prime Photos. What’s also cool is that once a year Amazon has Amazon Prime Day which just so happens to be Tuesday (July 12th) during which they offer exclusives to Prime members. Trust me when I say, Amazon Prime will save you time and money on whatever you are ordering.
Don’t forget to check out my own Amazon Store (I am an affiliate) by clicking on “Ed Troxell Creative’s Amazon Store” to see what I recommend and use. It has everything from camera gear to office supplies to traveling gear. It includes most of the books I have read that have helped me get to where I am today, but you can always check out my “Digital Library” for more. Below I’ve included some of my favorites. Share your favorite Amazon purchases in the comments below.
Additionally, I’m featuring this YI Action Camera (above). It’s basically a more affordable GoPro camera that I tested out last week on my vacation. The quality on this is amazing!!! A friend brought this with when we hit the lake. It’s super compact and extremely durable. He also bought additional accessories like extra batteries and the selfie stick and it all came out to half that of a GoPro camera alone!
So what are you waiting for? You might as well start shopping today and add things to your cart so you are ready for tomorrow! 😉
