Amazon Prime SG now only $2.99/month? Worth it?

Hello,

I'm thinking to use Amazon prime. Saw on this page for SG, https://www.amazon.com.sg/, it is now $2.99 per month, was $8.99 per month.

Will this price be permanent or will revert back to S8.99 in future?

And is it worth it beside able to get free games and use twitch prime for free?

Is it even worth it?

I had an account when it first launched coincidently it was the same time when GT season 2 came out. After that, there wasn't really any good deals via the prime app so then cancelled membership about afew months later.

Any current users care to share your opinion?

I subscribe primarily for Twitch Prime. Online shopping feels like a secondary concern.

It is useful if you buy from Prime regularly, i.e. at least a couple of time a month. Otherwise, there is barely any shows on the Amazon Prime Video locally. Also, do note that the variety of items on Prime Now as oppose to the full fledge Amazon, is very limited.

If you watch Twitch often, Prime would be worth it for you to support a streamer. Additionally, there are free games that twitch would give, but you need to install their desktop app.

Prime Video doesn't have any updates, at least I don't regularly check it as everytime I check, nothing significate changed.

Shopping wise, I have not seen very much offers, but the delivery is what I like the most, I can get same day delivery.

Sure will revert, it's only a matter of when. Enjoy it while it lasts, if you do use the services. I use mainly for shopping, less the games and twitch.

For shopping, I suggest you get the trial first, then search around, see if the items/brands you typically buy are available in the local or international store selections. If yes, subscribe. If not, don't bother, unless you keen on the games or twitch prime.
