    Doing a free trial on a 3 dollar purchase.

    So Prime TV looks good. Any recommendations?

    Wife like the looks of the new series The Boys.........

    What else can I do with the Account?

    How can I get it cheapest after the trial?

    Tell them you are a student. I think one of the 4 major phone carriers has it as benefit.
    Bosch is a good series.

    Prime is like half price if you are on welfare. Part of Bezos' genius to sell stuff to the people who should be least able to afford it.

    If you seriously want to get Amazon prime cheap...here is your answer.

    I have 5 friends who piggy back on my account. We sign up for pretty much everything..so my HBO is $3/month, prime costs what $20/year, etc.

    The only two downsides...a limited number of screens can be viewed at the same time and everyone has access to my credit card number (although I can see theirs)

    I do the same thing for netflix. Most of them use it for their kids.

    The first three seasons of The Expanse are available on
    Prime with season four due in Dec.
    If you liked Game of Thrones and Battlestar Gallactica, check out The Expanse.

    Prime also has the entire series of NYPD Blue. Totally non PC and you couldn’t away with so much of that show’s dialogue and story lines today.

    Bosch is good. The Grand Tour is pretty good with some low spots. Actually they have a lot of content.

    When your free trial is over you will pay the same freaking price as I will. When they raise the price you will pay that too. If you find out it isn't worth it to you for ther streaming content and free shipping cancel. Case closed.

    The man in the high castle is really good.The first few episodes start off slow but it's one of the best on Amazon that I have found so far.

    It is worth it to me just for the shipping.

    As others have said there is a lot of good programming.

    I'll add to the list of good original programming: The Patriot. totally unexpected and wildly fun!

    Shipping is the main thing for me. Prime Video next. You also have access to a pretty good selection of free ebooks and music.
