Did you know you might be able to get this service half off?

So some of you may have Amazon Prime, which has a lot of benefits, from watching their movies and television shows, to getting free shipping (although if you order $25 worth of merchandise you get free shipping anyway). Did you know if you are on qualifying government assistance (Medicaid, WIC, SSI, TANF, SNAP, Low Income Energy Assistance, and several more) you can get Prime for half the price? Instead of $14.99 a month it is $6.99 a month. You just half to upload a picture of say your EBT card, or proof of Medicaid, etc… Anyway, I doubt I sign up because I just don’t need it (although I’d love to have Thursday Night Football), but I thought it might save some of you money. Do you save money on any particular services?

@AmbiePam Yes if you get the discounted rate..you can only have yourself on it..no one else in the household can use it..I mean it is not family friendly..it is a one person rate. No for you its good as it is only you right? If you get the discounted rate..you cant add someone on to your account..a real pain in the a.. Course, they may have changed it. I know for sure you cant share the discounted rate, meaning you cant add another person if you get the student rate..I dunno..check it out though you may be fine. Its just what I remember.

@RebeccasFarm Oh, I didn’t intend to share it with anyone. I was confused as to why half price wouldn’t be better for me. There is no one for me to share it with so the half price should be just fine if I got it. I just don’t think I want to get it. I’d still be spending $6.99 on something I wouldn’t use much.

I thought I would need to sign up for Prime last year when Prime took over Thursday Night Football, but found it on a regular channel, I think Fox, but I'm not sure anymore. I know the Pack has a Thursday night game soon, the 28th against the Lions. If things have changed so that I need to sign up for it to watch the game, I will. But I don't think it will be necessary. Thanks for the info. It will come in handy if I need to sign up for it.
