Amazon Prime, or: Nobody’s Perfect

I thought that smile was a little too sly.

This is a confession blog.

We all have blind spots, sometimes. And I’m not too proud to admit that sometimes I’m not the brightest.

Anyway, I’ll just say it:

I’ve had Amazon Prime for years. And, like our Costco Executive membership we definitely get our money’s worth out of it.

Or so I thought.

I’ve had Amazon Prime for years, and until now I did not realize that my annual Prime membership also includes access to Prime video.

So maybe I haven’t actually been getting my money’s worth out of my membership.

There’s a terrible irony that, for all the blogging I’ve done about streaming video somehow, somewhere along the way I totally missed the fact that my Prime membership doesn’t just cover free shipping.

So embarrassing.

It makes me wonder what else I’m missing out on.
