The ultimate back to school deal: 6 months of Amazon Prime for free

Back to school sales start earlier and earlier each year, but they always have two things in common. First, they serve as bitter reminders that summer is coming to an end and a new semester will soon coma along to ruin it. Second, they all offer deals that are generally pretty “meh.”
Well, here’s a deal for you that is anything but dull: 6 months of free Amazon Prime service, and then a 50% discount thereafter.

Amazon Prime vs. Walmart’s ‘unlimited shipping’: Which deal is really better?

Walmart recently unveiled its new trial program aimed at taking on Amazon Prime: For $50 a year, you’ll be able to get unlimited three-day shipping for products you order through the giant retailer. This is $49 less than the $99 that Amazon Prime charges users every year for free two-day shipping and other perks, although Rather Be Shopping points out that Amazon’s deal could still deliver stronger value depending on your needs.

Netflix Vs. Amazon Prime Reality Shows

Yet another reason to love Netflix: It’s helping to kill reality TV

Yet another reason to love Netflix: It’s helping to kill reality TV

15 years ago, the reality TV craze took off in America and many people assumed that quality television programming was doomed to extinction. The reasons for this were simple: Reality shows were very cheap to produce and were hugely profitable for the major networks. After all, why bother paying professional writers when some gap-toothed goober from Chigger Creek, Texas would happily stuff fistfuls of maggots into his mouth for relative pennies? However, ever since Survivor and Big Brother made reality TV a major force in the entertainment world, something unexpected has happened: Quality scripted TV has gotten bigger, better and more ambitious than ever.

Video: New Amazon show wonders what life would be like if Germany won World War 2

Amazon Studios has an interesting new pilot that’s currently available to Prime members called The Man in the High Castle — based on the Philip K.

No one really cares about the Amazon Prime price increase

When Amazon first announced the price increase from $79 to $99 for Prime memberships, everyone was up in arms. Looking back at the reaction of Amazon customers following the announcement, you might have thought we’d be in the middle of a worldwide boycott of Amazon Prime about now, but it appears that the fallout was much less eventful than many had predicted. On Wednesday, CIRP released a report which shows that even after the price increase, 95% of U.S. Prime members still indicate that they will either “probably” or “definitely” renew their membership when it runs out.
