It’s October, and you know what that means—it’s time to stuff that Netflix queue full of zombies, creepy dolls, ghosts, slashers, and psychological torment.
It feels as if Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime want you to be confused about how many titles they offer at any given time. Streaming video aggregator Reelgood (a search engine and launcher for all your streaming video accounts) has been tracking their libraries for years, noticing things like Netflix’s shrinking and …
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you may be able to buy groceries at Whole Foods without actually having to wander the aisles of Whole Foods, which we all know to be a dangerous excursion (“How did I spend 32 dollars on cheese dip?”). Today, Amazon announced the launch of grocery pickup, which has rolled out in…
Amazon Prime Day is a full day (plus several hours!) of special discounts on items you can purchase online or at Whole Foods. Prime Day this year will take place on July 16, starting at 3 p.m. eastern time, and will last for 36 hours. To be eligible for most (but not all) of the deals, you have to be an Amazon Prime…
In January Amazon added voice controls to its Android app, and this week it finally did the same for iPhone owners.
Mark your calendars and prepare your wallets—or, if you’re trying not to spend any money, your site blockers: Amazon’s yearly extravaganza of online deals is approaching. A recent leak suggests it’s all happening on Monday, July 16.
A day before my last trip to Ireland I made a last-minute discovery: I had absolutely no idea where my travel power adapter was. We had recently moved and I didn’t have the slightest idea (and oddly still don’t months later) where my travel adapters ended up in our new place. For all I know they actually might still…
Print books are not dead—with kids, they’re thriving. As a parent, this makes me happy. It is a joy to sink into a bed with a tornado of a child, open a book, and read about a little girl who rescues a duckling or a porcupine who can’t make friends.
If you’re one of the seven people in the country who does not have Amazon Prime yet, you may want to act fast—the cost of the yearly service is increasing by $20, to $119 per year.
Amazon wants to get in your car. Unlike the company’s previous in-home delivery service, this move actually makes some sense. If you’re not comfortable letting a stranger into your house, but you also don’t want your packages to get stolen off the porch, then Amazon’s new In-Car deliveries are a decent compromise.
You open your door and there, sitting on your welcome mat, is a clearly marked package from Amazon. Thing is, you didn’t order anything from them, and upon closer inspection, it’s apparent this delivery isn’t for you. What should you do?
Amazon Prime’s free two-day shipping is a pretty great deal, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to get your order two days after you order it. Confused? I was too when my recent in-stock order took nearly a week to get to me.
It can be hard to imagine your life with out Amazon. The company offers everything from online shopping to audiobooks to AI-powered speakers, all at cut-throat prices, but Amazon also does a lot of things that you might not agree with.
In the arms race between Amazon and Google, homebodies are the clear winners. (Warehouse workers… not so much.) But Google’s latest parry, Google Express, sidesteps the warehouse entirely, delivering orders from your local stores straight to your home. It works a bit differently than Prime, even with Amazon’s recent…
Anime Strike, Amazon Video’s anime add-on channel that cost $5 a month, has been shut down. But don’t be sad! Rejoice! It just means you can watch a bunch of great anime with your Amazon Prime membership now, no additional subscription required.
You probably see it all the time: someone sitting alone out in the cold, holding a sign with a scribbled plea for help on it. Well, even if you don’t carry cash anymore, or have time to run to a nearby store, you might still be able to help them with this clever act of kindness.
We’ve known Amazon Prime Video was coming for Apple TV since WWDC early this year, but both Amazon and Apple have been pretty tight-lipped on when exactly that was going to happen. The answer: this week.
Amazon Prime is the gift that keeps on giving. Free fast shipping, streaming video, the Kindle Lending Library—it’s almost like Jeff Bezos is trying to make us entirely dependent on his company! Ha! Well, add another perk to the list: access to an early screening of the new Jumanji movie.
Most standalone streaming services like Hulu and Netflix offer free 30-day trials, which is perfect if you want to binge watch a show and bail. It’s possible to double the life of this free period, though, and as Kyle James at Rather Be Shopping writes in a new post, it’s also pretty easy.
You might be knee deep in organic chemistry textbooks and the cheapest ramen you can find, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the perks of toilet paper and Twix bars delivered to you in a timely fashion. Amazon, which already offered discounted Amazon Music Unlimited service for college students in the past, is now…
