Share Amazon Prime With Coworkers In Your Office

Many people enjoy the convenience of Amazon Prime, which for $79 a year gives you free 2-day shipping with no minimum purchase requirement, a decent streaming-video library, and a so-so Kindle book lending library. You may also know that you can share your shipping benefits with other people in your same household (with the ability to use multiple shipping addresses). At the same time, many people choose to get their stuff shipped to their workplace as one of those addresses. Amazon now explicitly allows you to share your shipping benefits with four other coworkers, which mean 5 coworkers can get free 2nd-day shipping by splitting $79 a year. See Share Your Amazon Prime Benefits:

Free or paid Amazon Prime members can share their shipping benefits with up to four additional family members living in the same household, or up to four coworkers. Other Amazon Prime membership benefits such as Prime Instant Video and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library can’t be shared.

[...] Amazon Mom and Amazon Student members with Amazon Prime shipping benefits and customers receiving a free 30 days of Amazon Prime benefits with Kindle Fire won’t be able to share their benefits.

Only the primary owner gets the video streaming, but I think the shipping benefits are worth the most as Netflix only runs $7.99 a month with a bigger library. The only slightly hard part would perhaps be to collect payment, but really a free lunch per year should do it. Go make some friends! :)

  1. The terms state that the four co-workers is only available with a small business corporate membership.

    I checked my account and there is not an option to add co workers, only family members.

  2. I’m in charge of accounting at my office, but the office manager does all the purchasing. If she needs anything, she lets me know, I charge it on my Amazon Visa for triple points and then get reimbursed by the company.

  3. That’s actually pretty cool to do. I’m going to bring this up to my co-workers and see if they are up for this deal.

  4. if only my co workers would agree to anything like that! I can’t even get them to car pool
