I use the Prime streaming a LOT. Lots of good BBC content on there, especially if you like mysteries (Poirot, Prime Suspect, etc). Another big benny, if you read a lot, is the free Kindle book every month. That alone pays for the membership. The only drawback is that the free book is only good on a Kindle device (can't be read on iPad, etc.) Actual goods? Don't order much at all, maybe 6 times a year.
