Should I sign up for Amazon Prime just for Prime Day 2019 sale?
In case you're not an Amazon Prime member yet and you're wondering if it makes sense to simply sign up for the program just for a sale, there are a few things you could consider.
Amazon Prime costs Rs. 999 per year and Rs. 129 per month, and seems to offer quite a lot of value. You get free fast delivery options with no minimum caps on shopping value, free access to Prime Video and Prime Music, exclusive early access to Amazon's sales, and more.
Use the monthly option only if you're looking to try out Prime membership, otherwise, the annual plan makes more sense. You could also get free access to Amazon Prime with select tariff plans on Airtel, Idea, BSNL, and Vodafone.
