We all know that Amazon is a giant! And for good reason. Amazon has anything and everything you could ever possibly need or want. I recently found out that Amazon has thing I need that I didn’t even know I needed! But did you know that Amazon has time saving hacks for the busy family? That’s right, Amazon has your back.

First up, Amazon Prime Membership
Most of you know about Amazon Prime. This one is the ultimate time saving hack. A Prime membership cost you $12.99/mo or $99/year if you choose to pay yearly (and you should because it saves you almost $57). With Prime you get free 2 day shipping on eligible products, you get free streaming music and movies, free photo and video cloud storage and thousands of free eBooks.
As if that wasn’t enough you can step that up a notch with an Amazon Family Subscription. With Amazon Family you can save up to 20% off diapers, food, paper products, and vitamins. Pretty much everything you need to care for your family. You’ll also get age appropriate coupons and articles designed specifically for you and your family based on the ages of your children. You do have to be an Amazon Prime member to upgrade to Amazon Family.
Want to take it above and beyond? Did you know that you can even get FREE SAME DAY SHIPPING on most items if your purchase amount is large enough? Time saving hacks jackpot! Out of diapers and wipes? Nope, you don’t have to pack the diaper bag, get the kids dressed, load them all into the car and head to Target. You just have to click a button and they’re on their way…SAME DAY!
Next up, Amazon Audible.
Okay, so recently we all made a move so that we could co-family better. Previously I was living about 45 minutes away from my son’s dad. That made spur of the moment visits and full on co-family activities a bit hard. So we all decided to move to the same city and now we’re only 10 minutes apart. This has been an amazing experience. The down side is that now Trey, my son’s dad, has over an hour commute to work! The sacrifices we make for our kids, right?
So he started using Amazon Audible. This service is free with an Amazon Prime membership and just $14.95/month without the prime membership (are you starting to see all the benefits of having an Amazon Prime membership?). Now Trey can choose from thousands of audio books, podcasts, comedy shows, talk shows, and audio versions of articles from major publications to listen to while he drives to and from work. And he gets all of that ad free with his audible membership.
Now, last but not least, the free stuff! The Amazon Baby Registry.
If you’re expecting or planning on expecting you NEED an Amazon Baby Registry. Did I mention this is free? FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE! This isn’t your normal baby registry. Normally you’d go to Target or Buy Buy Baby and use the fun little scan gun to pick out what you want on your registry then you’d let everyone know where you registered and they’d be totally limited to those places and have to either go in person to get the items or pay for the shipping to have them sent to you.
Those days are OVER my friend! With the Amazon Baby Registry you can choose ANY item from ANY store you want including the endless options on Amazon. Whatever your little heart desires is a click away with the Amazon Baby Registry. You get free shipping, 90 day returns and a mobile app so you can access your registry (or peek at the awesome gifts you’re getting) from anywhere at any time. And just like with everything else Amazon, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get 10-15% off your items.
This means time saving hacks for you and the people who love you. No one has to get dressed and go anywhere. They just hop on Amazon and shop till they drop. You know you’re going to get some great stuff when you make it that easy on people!
