    I had it when they were offering a year trial for mommies. I LOVED it! The free 2-day shipping was A-MAZING!

    With that said, I didn't renew it. I haven't used Amazon since my trial was over, and I can't justify paying $80 a year for something I probably wouldn't get my money out of.

    I signed up for the free one month trial a while back. It was awesome. I ordered stuff and had it pretty much the next day and the super fast shipping was FREEEEEE. Seriously amazing!

    I don't really have the $80 budgeted annually to splurge to get the subscription, but if I did, I would. I use Amazon for a lot of my Christmas gifts so it would be really cool to be able to get everything lightning fast and still with free shipping. Definitely worth it IMO. I always start getting panicky that I'm not going to get my stuff in time, even though I shop really early, because you just never know with the free super saver shipping. $80 really isn't too much if you shop there often!

    You can get free shipping on lots of things without the membership. I never considered it because I wasn't using it enough to justify the price... BUT, if I have the membership, it'll save me $7/box of diapers, which I'm going to need a lot of... so I'm kinda tempted right now.

    Love love love my prime. I've had it free for about 2 years (using my grad school email address to get the student membership), and I'm pretty sure we'll re-up it when it expires. If you have a kindle, you can get all kinds of free books and free streaming with the prime membership.

    I had it free for a while through Amazon mom but other than that I can't justify the $80 a year. I don't order enough to make it worth it.

    Yes, amazon mom will only save you 5% on diapers. Amazon mom couples with Prime will save you 20%.

    To buy or not to buy? :)

    I LOVE Amazon Prime. I'm quite certain I couldn't live without it!

    We had the free trial a couple of years ago, and have been renewing it ever since!

    I had a free trial when they first started and LOVED IT. But I don't order from Amazon that much and I can't really justify paying that much. Even if I paid next day shipping for everything I don't think I order enough to even equal how much it costs.

    I order tons of little things from them now that I have prime. They have good deals on things like batteries, toilet paper, peanut butter, etc. It's all stuff that doesn't qualify for FSSS, so I'd be paying $5.95 for regular shipping, but instead I get it in a day or two for free.

    When the student prime runs out, you have the option to renew at half price. Is there a similar promo for mom? I'll be able to get full prime membership for $39/year, which I will absolutely use the value of.

    I am pretty sure you shouldn't need Amazon Prime. You get the extra % off if you use subscribe and save which you can do with Amazon mom. Then you set it up to automatically send you diapers however often you want (once a month, every 3 months, etc). However if you don't want the next package sent, you can cancel it before the next shipment.

    I had the free trial of Amazon Prime with Amazon mom and had it for about 6 months, and it definitely spoiled me getting my packages in 2 days. However I didn't renew it, because I don't *need* 2-day shipping and I can get the free super saver shipping without Prime. You can borrow one book/month free for Kindle, but I have found so many free books on Amazon already, I have enough books to last me a year. I can get other books through my library free. And as for Amazon instant video, we already have Netflix and Hulu subscriptions. So for us I haven't felt it was worth it yet.

    I did not get the option of half price membership when my Amazon Mom free trial was up. If I could get it for $39/year, yes I would get it, but not for $79....at least not right now.

    I have Amazon Prime via my student email/number right now. I have it for a year. It is the best. Our whole family uses it through my account. 2-day, free shipping? Then 1-day shipping for *only* $3.99? Such a great deal.

    This is great news! :D

    They changed it for the diapers. Now Subcribe & save only saves you 5%. Amazon mom is tied with Prime, and will save you 20%.

    BUT I found a way around it, at least for now. I just opened a new account under my husband's name & voila, got the 3 month trial free again! (I wasted mine, because I only ordered 2 diaper boxes during my free trial!). This time, I'll make good use of the 3 months saving and order everything I'll need in bulk :)

    Hey, everyone, here's a little known fact- you can share an amazon prime membership among as many as four households. Ours includes us, My cousin in wisconsin, her son and his family, and my daughter Rachel. We each pay every fourth year. Totally worth it. One person gets the membership, and then adds the other people. Each additional person has their own personal and credit card info loaded in, and they are not accessible to each other.

    Their membership info page says four family members in the same household - does this really work even though you guys have different addresses? I'm assuming you all use your individual addresses...
