A few days ago, my trial membership to Amazon Prime, afforded to me by the prime controller I bought, ran its course. So, mere moments ago, I decided to sign up for an Amazon Prime account upgrade. And to make it even more cost effective, I switched the default monthly plan to an annual plan. Nice little ancillary benefit, no matter where I go, because it's tied to my account, I won't be dependent on others quite so much. That'll add some long sought constancy to my otherwise topsy-turvy life. As an added bonus, I can access my account via myriad digital formats and devices. Ala John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, One Account to Control Them All. Quite empowering if played properly, membership should bring opportunities.
