Amazon Prime benefits: -$100

I've considered dropping Amazon Prime for some time. I went ahead and let it renew last month. I almost didn't, but until Walmart Plus gets shipping on par with Amazon, I can't talk myself into dropping Amazon Prime.

I don't use the Prime Video service much, but I do use the shipping benefits. I've been a member since that's all Amazon Prime was: shipping benefits. Before Prime Video even existed, I was an Amazon Prime member.

So, with the price now at $139/year, how much benefit am I getting? Well, Amazon says I'm getting $39.44 of benefit from my $139 subscription.

That means, according to Amazon's own numbers, I'm behind by $99.56 over the past 12 months. And I believe it.

Maybe I should be watching more Prime Video. They would have to have more that I want to watch for that to happen.

Maybe I should order more. They would have to have more stuff that I couldn't find elsewhere for that to happen.

Or maybe, just maybe, I should drop Amazon Prime. That's within the realm of possibility.

My Streaming Life doesn't involve a lot of Prime Video. I will look at doing that between now and the end of the year. By January, when the subscription would renew, I'll see if I'm getting $139 in value from Amazon Prime. If not, I'll be saving some money when I drop it.
