What is Amazon Prime?
Amazon Prime is a paid subscription service that costs $119 per year or $12.99 per month. Prime members receive a wide variety of perks. The biggest perk, however, is free one- or two-day shipping on most items sold by Amazon. During Amazon's Q1 2021 earnings call, the company revealed it has over 200 million paid Prime members worldwide. So if you've ever wondered what is Amazon Prime — this should answer your question.
Amazon Prime Gaming

Heads up, gamers! Amazon just announced a new benefit for its 150 million Amazon Prime members. Amazon Prime Gaming is the latest freebie in Amazon Prime's suite of digital perks. Prime Gaming is essentially a rebranding of Twitch Prime. (Amazon purchased the live video-game-streaming site for $970 million back in 2014). That means you get the same exclusive in-game loot, free monthly games (that are yours to keep forever), and a free monthly Twitch subscription. To claim all of your gaming freebies and benefits, Prime members just need to log into their account and visit the new Prime Gaming landing page.

PS5 and Amazon Prime
If you're hunting for PS5 restock, being a Prime member could help. Amazon UK has rolled out exclusive Prime member only PS5 drops. The retailer is testing this new scheme out in the UK only at the time, but it could make its way to the States should things prove successful. The hope is that by making PS5 drops exclusive to Prime members it will weed out scalpers and bots. The move could also lead to more Prime member sign ups. However, in the U.S. there's been no talk of Prime member only restocks yet.

Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video is one of the biggest perks of being an Amazon Prime member. Prime Video offers unlimited streaming of movies and TV episodes for paid or free trial members in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. You can also add video subscriptions to services like Showtime, Starz, A&E, AMC and many other streaming entertainment channels. In fact, Prime members can now get a 30-day free trial of Paramount Plus. Amazon is constantly expanding its Prime Video library with new content. For more information, go to About Prime Video.
If you think you'll be heading abroad, though, Amazon will limit your viewing. In that case, it's worth getting an Amazon Prime VPN so you can change your location and watch everything you pay for, wherever you are.
