    I'm sure that will do her a world of good. She'll come back all rested up and happy.

    with you being on the road, how does delivery work? do you stay in one place long enough for deliveries or does someone collect stuff until you get home?

    sorry to be nosy, I've just always wondered how that works.

    I have a PO Box as my permanent mailing address, and that forwards to wherever I am. I just call them and change the forwarding address when we move. But I've also had packages sent to my hotel or campground - they're used to transients.

    Amazon Prime has definitely been worth it for me. I purchase quite a bit from them and it has been well worth it. The video and music libraries are an added bonus!

    he's so proud of himself

    Prime is fantastic especially since my work hours have switched. Just yesterday I had to order new resistance bands bc my one broke and I knew I wouldn't make it to walmart or target in the next 24-48 hrs. It arrived at my house early this afternoon! Except now I have no excuse to miss another workout

    The customer service is fantastic too. I accidentally ordered two of some pet flea and tick meds (which are non-refundable btw), called to see if there was any chance I could return them anyways...ADMITTED I was the one to screw up, and they insisted on returning me the money for one of the packages AND told me to keep it.
    none of my yoga pants have ever been to yoga.

    There are ways around it. They opened three warehouses here in Fl in 2015, and if your item is shipped from one of those we pay Fl sales taxes. However, just a little looking around before you order almost always leads to the same product that you can order from out of state. Works for me, and saves me $ sales tax.

    Legal, too. I bet that really gets to ya, right, tj?

Since then, I and family, have probably exceeded the original outlay by at least twice. If you order anything, chances are it is prime eligible, and lots of time we get next day delivery free.

    I think it is a good deal, at least for us.
    We love it here! Save a boatload in shipping - much more than the cost of the subscription.
