Amazon is going all out on their TV and movie sales this Cyber Monday. I’m finding sales up to 78 percent off on select DVDs, Blu-ray, and streaming media. Movies will always be one of my favorite gifts to receive. It’s something I can enjoy over and over and a gift I can sit down and watch with the person who gave it to me. Movies can be a little like giving a package of dedicated quality time.
To get the most out these sales, make sure you’re not going to be slammed by hidden shipping costs. You can sign up for free two-day Prime shipping for as low as $8.25 a month when you pay annually. Month to month, it’s still only $10.99 so if you shop on Amazon even seldomly, a Prime subscription will pay for itself in no time. If you’re not ready for that kind commitment but you are into being sneaky, Amazon has a 30-day Free Trial Prime Membership, and look at that, it’s around one month until Christmas. Just make sure you set a reminder on your phone for a day or so before your free trial expires so you can cancel it before you’re rolled over onto a regular membership and charged $10.99. Amazon is pretty good about that sort of thing though because if you forget to cancel but you haven’t used your Prime benefits since your trial ended, you can usually get a refund.
These deals are going to run out fast. I’ll be here from start to finish, constantly checking on these deals to keep this article accurate and up to date on inventory and pricing. The sun isn’t even up yet and I’m already updating this with new sales.
