On the perk side an amazon store savings account. Now your probably saying wait a minute no store is going to give you a savings account when their primary focus is to make you spend. While this is true they still do in a way and may not realize this and your asking how do I use this account right? Step one obtain amazon gift codes which can be obtain in a variety of ways from in grocery stores to legitimate survey sites. Next enter the codes into the gift card balance with a non experation status it will always be there for your purchasing needs.
Next perk using account for giftcards and everything else with no cash needed. What this means is as long as your grand total is lower than your gift card balance select that as a payment option and they will take it out of that and leave you the rest with no credit card required.
Drawbacks a2z policy while ok in some departments not on all in my opinion do not expect to use the return policy on anything in electronics as they will not seem to honor it.
Waiting weather it is customer service if you can reach them to delievery of shipment amazon wait time like the a2z policy has a ton of room for what seems to be much needed improvement. Overall not the worst and with so many improvements needed far from being the best.
When using Amazon, I always take advantage of reading the reviews prior to purchasing. Amazon has a really well laid-out site and easy to follow when wanting to learn more about a product such as reading reviews, looking at photos or checking out quickly.
I am also a big fan of the "Lists" section. I can build out separate lists, for example: Christmas, home, kids, gifts, baby, home, etc. It is quite handy.
If you are a student, don't forget you can take advantage of the discount you can receive for Amazon Prime. It saves you 50% and can really come in handy during your college years.
I hope this helps anyone who has not tried Amazon!
