All Amazon Prime Benefits
Amazon Prime is a subscription-based service by Amazon that provides members with access to a variety of services and benefits.
It started out as free shipping service but has expanded since then into several different directions.
This year alone, Amazon added several new services such as free audiobooks, reading or Twitch benefits to Amazon Prime.
With all those things being added, it can be quite difficult to keep an overview of the benefits that Prime users get.
Even if you are a Prime subscriber already, you may have trouble keeping up with new features and benefits.
Note: Prime benefits differ from region to region. This article looks at the benefits that users from the US get, and compares those to what users in Germany and the UK get. Amazon launches new features in the US first usually and makes them available in other regions later on.

As you can see, the US market offers the most benefits to Prime subscribers. It seems likely that the benefits will eventually be available in other regions as well.
