If you aren’t already one of the millions of Amazon Prime subscribers, first-time members can try it out for 30 days free of charge. A Prime membership grants you the opportunity to save big on Amazon devices, electronics, back-to-school supplies, and hundreds of thousands of other products during the retailer’s upcoming Amazon Prime Day shopping holiday in the summer.
A Prime membership typically costs $13 per month, or $119 for a full year, which may seem steep, but it’s still completely worth it (and to put it into perspective, JPMorgan estimated the true value of a membership is actually $785).

It’s completely free, so you can shop Amazon’s daily deals, participate in Prime Day, and try out other features of Prime without the commitment.
Amazon also offers discounted Prime memberships for the following groups:
