If you’re anything like me, you give Amazon Prime a run for their money. I wonder if my neighbors think that I have an Amazon-problem. I don’t—I promise! I do have a time problem though. I am always on the go. I think that’s one of the best parts about Amazon, it does the work for you!
With that in mind, I wanted to list out a few ideas of how to use your Amazon Prime Membership for God’s Kingdom and your personal growth.
1. Support a non-profit with Amazon Smile
Amazon Smile is pretty cool, actually. If you’re anything like me, you order lots of stuff from amazon on a regular basis. Amazon will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to a non-profit of your choice. What an easy way to support the growth of God’s Kingdom—you’re already doing all the work.
2. Read Christian Books
Kindle First is a way to get free books. And, sometimes, the editors’ picks are Christian books. Getting to read more about our creator and savior for FREE—what could be better?
3. Listen to Worship Music
Hello, Worship playlists. Similar to Spotify or Pandora, Amazon Prime has its own version of music streaming. There are awesome playlists for Christians to stream. Christian workout, acoustic, sleep, etc. I love music, but sometimes I get tired of the songs that I have been listening to—this is a great way to find new music.
4. Bless Other People
Subscribe and Save. This idea is my favorite because you set it up once and then it is like a surprise in the mail every (week, month, etc.) . If you subscribe (set the frequency you would like to order something) then you save a percentage off that product every time. So Cool! I do it for things like shampoo and deodorant. Subscribe to a product that you can bless someone else with every month.

Laura, the Missional Women host, tells a story about a friend of hers in college that “TP’s” people. When she visits their home she restocks their bathroom with a bunch of toilet paper. So thoughtful and it is so easy with Amazon.
Any other ideas that you’ve thought of? How have you maximized your Amazon Prime Membership?
