It's not just free though...it is free 2 day shipping. Sometimes comes even faster. Most places don't even ship it that fast when you pay for shipping.
plus the streaming video (they have a couple good original shows, and overall selection is decent...don't charge extra for the little bit of 4k they have either).
Plus a bunch of other perks only available with prime. Some irk me because they still cost extra money, but Prime Pantry is great for heavy/large bulk groceries. Prime Now can deliver stuff within an hour or two. Free restaurant delivery in some areas.
Prime only discounts (just got 20% off video game preorders).
Kindle lending library.
I'm not always happy with changes they make to the service...but I do find it pretty valuable.
