My obsession with Amazon Prime started in 2016 when my neighbors told me they had an Amazon Prime membership. Up until that point I had no idea that Amazon would deliver to my rural town. After hearing the great news, I jumped on Amazon and signed up for a 30 day trial membership. In all honesty, it took me one delivery to realize I had to be an Amazon Prime member. I can’t even begin to tell you everything I’ve bought with it over the last year. I found the perfect skincare products for my sensitive skin, I bought my Yorkie an adorable pink couch, my Weimaraner loves his vegan dog-friendly red velvet cupcakes, and that’s just the beginning. When it comes to fashion, I’ve scored amazing deals on AG jeans, Ugg slippers, sweaters, etc. I should also mention I order my 94 year old grandmother these Word Puzzle books to help keep her memory sharp. When I say Amazon has everything, I do mean it! Have you heard of Amazon Prime Now? It’s an amazing service where you can get items shipped even quicker.

Amazon Retail Expert Amanda Ip Shares Last Minute Holiday Gifts You’ll Love From Amazon Prime Now!
Candace Rose Anderson: With the holiday season upon us and Christmas Eve just a few short days away, is there still time to shop for the perfect holiday gift?
Amanda Ip: “I’ve got great news for all those procrastinators out there because there’s still time to make that holiday miracle happen. Prime Now (Amazon’s one and two-hour delivery service) is delivering holiday magic all the way until 11:59 pm local time on December 24th. You can still get those last minute shopping items, as well as that key ingredient that you forgot for your holiday dinner, or if you run out of egg nog because people are a little thirsty, we’ve got you covered. We’re bringing all of those items right to your door in super fast speeds.”
Candace Rose Anderson: What are some great gift ideas for people who are still shopping?
Amanda Ip: “There’s tons of things that customers can still shop for. If you’re looking for gifts, this Instant Pot is high on my list. This device is great for all of those chefs in your life. I like it because it can pretty much have dinner on the table when I get home, which I love.
Amazon has a great selection of Instant Pots
The board games are also hugely popular, especially for family fun. It makes a great stocking stuffer. You can basically trick your family into hanging out with you.
Fun board games the entire family will LOVE!
One of my favorite things is this Amazon Echo Show. This is everything you know and love about the Echo, but now Alexa can show it to you on your screen. If you are needing to get into the holiday spirit, you’re making food, she can actually show you a holiday movie while you’re making dinner. You can even video chat with loved ones. I love to video chat with my mom who likes to critique my cooking, so when I’m prepping that holiday meal, she kind of chimes in with a little holiday advice here and there. Again, you can find all of these items and more available on PrimeNow.com or if you’re shopping on the go, the Prime Now app.”

Candace Rose Anderson: I’ve had an Alexa Echo Dot for a few weeks and I use it all the time. I’m embarrassed to admit that I sometimes tell appliances that aren’t connected to Alexa to stop, turn on, turn off! I think everything is powered by Alexa now.
Amanda Ip: “She can do basically everything for you. She’s a voice enabled virtual assistant. I always say, who doesn’t need a virtual assistant for our busy lives? Alexa wakes me up in the morning with her alarm clock, she reads me the day’s headlines, she even tells me the weather so that I can get properly dressed in the morning. I don’t know what I would do without her. I would even go so far as to say she’s probably one of my best friends.”

Candace Rose Anderson: How can I find out if I can get Prime Now in my area?
Amanda Ip: “If you’re a Prime member, you can download the Prime Now mobile app or go to PrimeNow.com. Just enter your zip code and see if you’re in the service area. If you’re not a Prime member, it’s not too late. You can still take advantage of this super fast delivery service, just simply go and sign up for a free 30 day trial on Amazon.com/Prime and get shopping on the Prime Now app.”
Candace Rose Anderson: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share with us?
Amanda Ip: “Prime members can place their orders by 9 pm local time on December 24th to get free two hour delivery to their door by 11:59 pm on December 24th, so you can get those items under that tree before the stroke of midnight hits and you can save the day this holiday season.”
