May 30, 2018 /prREACH/ -- USA Today has recently published an article stating that Amazon is broadening its reach to lower-income customers. Amazon will now be offering a 50% discount on Prime memberships for those on Medicaid, the federal health insurance program for those who can’t afford it.
Medicaid users will be eligible to receive Prime for $5.99 per month as opposed to the standard rate of $12.99 a month with no annual commitment required. Frux Home and Yard, one of the many sellers on Amazon.com, is very supportive of this change as stated by Mike MacDonald Operations Manager. “We at Frux Home and Yard provide beautiful and affordable accent lighting and home products such as our LED tea lights which included free shipping for Prime members. By having a Prime membership, customers can save money when purchasing our products as they will not have to pay additional shipping fees.”
He added that “For those without Prime who want to save on shipping, we do offer free shipping on bulk orders that are over $50.00.” Frux Home and Yard features a wide selection of flameless products that are safe to use around children and pets. As mentioned by Mike MacDonald, their products are very affordable and are often listed in Amazon.com sales. On a yearly basis, the Medicaid user discount is $27.00 cheaper than the regular annual Prime rate which is $99.00 a year.
For those who are wanting to test out Amazon Prime before buying, they can sign up for a 30-day free trial of the services to see if its right for them. Users who do this and decide they do not want to continue with Prime will need to cancel their membership before the 30-days is up to avoid further charges for the following month. As stated above, Frux Home and Yard believes that this is an excellent opportunity for shoppers to save money. Prime members also have the option to select prime 2-day shipping on some items at no additional charge. For more information or to sign up for Prime, users can visit Amazon.com.
