Don't Buy If You're Willing to Hunt for Deals
Do you love to hunt for deals and look for the best price no matter which store has it on sale? If that describes how you shop, you should think twice about buying Amazon Prime.
Many of the best deals that you can find are from smaller retailers or from stores like Best Buy, Walmart and Target, which don't ask you to pay extra to join a membership program like Amazon Prime to get shipping or to get access to deals.
You can still use this in tandem with shopping for deals, especially at the student price, but there is less reason to spend the $60 a year for Amazon Prime if you prefer more flexible shopping options.
