The phone actually looks quite decent as a spare phone depending on how much of the google stuff you can get working on it.

What's the point of prime outside of US? Just the streaming?

The free shipping is useful if you use it with a forwarding service that consolidates shipments.  I've bought very light stuff from Amazon using the free shipping then combined it with heavy stuff from other companies effectively giving me free shipping to NZ on the Amazon stuff.

Which forwarding service do you use? Would love to be able to consolidate shipments, not possible on Youshop unfortunately

I just gifted myself Prime to start a day after my existing membership finishes. $72 total




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Just bought mine at the special price - and paid from my Gift Card balance. I remember it was a credit card only thing, so can't complain about that either.

Worldship - ws1.com

They have a 25% off deal until the end of January along with only charging actual weight (not dimensional weight) up to about 30 pounds.  You can also get a 30% off coupon via Instagram.

Just be careful of their "banned" items, they mostly target the Middle Eastern market so some things they won't ship, so probably not a good option for a set of kitchen knives as knives are weapons.

Dollar seems crap at the moment so the discount on prime is probably not worth it. Didnt realize it was so bad till after I had bought some things today. Doh.
