    Especially when you look at European prices since the train has sold out everywhere..

    It was in my Gold Box too so I was able to get in for just under $100. Thanks!

    Thanks for the heads up, 2 more on the way to me. :)

    I think that is a very good price, you might or might not find one on BF, this set is already getting scarce.

    ^^ I'm kinda new to the amazon thing. What's a gold box? Also, Lego [email protected] has this for 107.98, for only $3 I think I would rather have my points.

    ^^ Agree...cheaper to buy at [email protected] Amazon shopping was the way to go before TX folks had to pay taxes.

    I just got the free amazon trial for shipping, do most of you think it is worth the extra $69 a year?

    I've had Prime for several years now...I love being able to order even low-dollar items and have them show up in a day or 2, especially non-perishable grocery items. I always hated looking for useless fillers for free shipping. I wouldn't get it if I just used it to buy LEGO as usually most sets qualify for free shipping, but would recommend if you are looking to do more everyday purchasing.

    I do not think that paying 69 dollars a year is enough to justify getting it quicker, but that is just me.. Maybe around the Holidays, but I just do my shopping eariler.

    There are other benefits to prime, such as a pretty large library of streaming video.

    That, and it does change the way you use Amazon.

    Instead of waiting a week for items, they often arrive 24-48 hours after you order.

    I often can order something on Wednesday night and have it Friday morning. That isn't 2 day shipping, that it about 36 hour delivery from time of clicking "order" to having the items in my grubbly little hands.

    All of a sudden, it becomes easier to buy something from Amazon than it does to make a special trip to Walmart or Home Depot. We get our air filters for the house from Amazon, rather than Home Depot, just as an example.

    Prime allows you to never worry about hitting $25 purchase price, it lets you get items super fast, and the streaming videos are just a nice plus.

    ^-- Oh without a doubt, I have used the 30 days trial before and it is nice, but not nice enough to warrant paying 69 dollars, but again that is just me.

    @madforLEGO For me, Amazon Prime's value only became apparent after using it. As @LegoFanTexas mentioned: it becomes a replacement for regular shopping. I order gloves from there not only more cheaply than the local store, but I save the travel time and shopping time, and it arrives a day and a half later.

    And I know this was talked about A LOT on some other thread, so I will tread lightly here: but for me, the time vs money thing really works out in this equation. It's hard for me to find an hour to shop for gloves, or a thousand other things I buy on Amazon.

    ^ Agreed... So far this year, I have 546 orders placed on Amazon. That isn't items, it is orders, probably 4,000+ items have been purchased on Amazon this year since so often I end up with multiple items per order.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004VN9HRE/

    That is an example of an item that is cheaper and easier to buy at Amazon than it is to find in a local shop, delivered to our door for $5.95.

    So for us, it makes Prime an easy decision, the yearly price divided by the number of items we buy, it might be 3 or 5 cents an item.

    And no, LEGO sets do not make up most of that. ;)

    Paper towels, crackers, peanut butter, air filters, bath salts, diapers, you name it, we buy it from Amazon. And that ignores the obvious stuff like toner cartridges, batteries, computer parts, Blu-Rays, books, etc.

    If anyone is interested in trying Prime then Amazon is now offering it at $7.99 per month. If you have a discovercard then you can also get 1 day shipping free until 12/15. This is a great way to try it out for the Xmas season without making a full year commitment.

    The streaming video was the deciding factor for my family. We actually cancelled satellite once we got Amazon Prime.
  • AmberylAmberyl Member Posts: 193
    Agreed with the folks above who said that Prime changed the way that they used Amazon. It became a replacement for a lot of our routine shopping for the household, usually at lower cost and much greater convenience that going to Target and so on.

    A little known benefit of having a .edu email address is free prime for a month, then $39.99 per year for four years. I have a .edu (as does my wife), so we're set for $39.99 / yr Prime for the next 7 years.
