    I buy lots of stuff on Amazon. although I've never found the prime to be worth my while. I just don't like spending $79 to get free two day shipping while I know I can wait a little longer just by using the free super saver shipping. to me what's a few extra days of waiting, it's gonna arrive at my dorr step anyway. other than that, I already have netflix streaming, so prime doesn't justify the $79 to me personally.
