Amazon is a tech company that places a large emphasis on customer experience & satisfaction. As we move into the future, services are increasingly becoming digital so people can make purchases from around the globe. Amazon is helping to move our society forward by providing content at the touch of our fingers. We can watch movies, play video games, listen to audiobooks & more. My goal is to help you learn more about the variety of digital services & products Amazon offers.
One Time Amazon Digital Purchases
In the era of the Internet, you can find anything online. Amazon One Time Purchases is the equivalent to Blockbuster or iTunes. I will show you how easy it is to find movies/music with Amazon and pay a one time fee to buy/rent online.
Let's say you don't have a Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon prime subscription but you wanted to watch a movie like the Greatest Showman. You can rent the movie for 30 days at the cost of $3.99, or you can buy it and watch it forever for $19.99.
The cost to rent a movie is usually $3.99 but the buying price depends on the movie. However, you can stream most movies with a purchase of Amazon Prime as stated above. One additional option for movies is to buy the hardcopy (DVD version). For example, I have the option to watch the digital version of 1917 or buy the Blu Ray version, DVD version, or 4k version.
With Amazon, you can subscribe to Amazon music or you can buy individual songs/albums. They have a wide variety of artists that you can support! It's helpful to buy digital music because you can stream it from your phone without wifi and without having a monthly subscription. It is really easy to buy Amazon Digital Music.
Amazon Software is easy to buy and download on your computer. They sell products like the Microsoft Office Suite, Anti Virus Software & more. The #1 Bestseller for the Software category is the 12 month Microsoft Office package for $58.99/year. On Microsoft's website, it is listed at $70 which is more expensive than the Amazon pricing.
Amazon Digital Electronics
If you are looking for digital electronics, Amazon will have it in stock. In this section, I will show you 6 different electronics that are must-haves! These are every day items that you may use for work, school, or just for fun.
1. #1 Bestselling Laptop - Asus VivoBook
Amazon has a wide selection of laptops for different uses. You can find laptops for personal use, working, gaming, school, and more! You may not be in the market for an expensive laptop so I would recommend the ASUS VivoBook for $277.
2. Apple Macbook Air
If you want a quality laptop from a well-known brand, I would recommend the Apple MacBook Air (13-inch) which has 8GB of Ram and 256GB SSD Storage. MacBook Air is my favorite computer because it is light, powerful, and fun to use! This is the latest model on the market and it is a great value.
3. MSI GL65 Leopard Gaming Laptop
Last but not least is the MSI GL65 Leopard gaming computer. This laptop is probably the best bang for your buck out there. I've tested several games on this laptop so far and the experience has been fantastic. The fans can be noisy when gaming, but nothing a gaming headset can't fix! Overall I am very pleased with the laptop so far and would highly suggest this to anyone who is looking for a gaming laptop.
1. #1 Bestselling Desktop - Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO 3
This powerful computer enables innovation in everything you do. It has exceptional graphics & can hold up to 512 GB of disk space. Plus, the computer stand design is eye-catching and aesthetically pleasing.
2. PC Desktop - CyberpowerPC Gamer PC
Get the pinnacle of gaming performance with the CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Supreme series of gaming computers. This well-known gaming brand built a powerful gaming PC that pushes many titles at 2K on high/ultra, makes little noise, & has good cable management. The price is better than buying from PCpartpicker components but this PC doesn't have great heat management. If they added an extra fan or two, this PC would be unstoppable.
3. Video Games
1. NBA 2k21
Amazon has a wide variety of the latest & greatest video games. I am personally a basketball fan so I was happy with their selection of games including NBA 2k21 for $99.
2. Madden NFL 21
I also like playing Madden so it was great to see that they offer the newest selection of games like Madden NFL 21 for $59.99.
They have games for Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and more. If you need to cop a new video game don't go to GameStop, because you can get it cheaper on Amazon. I recommend checking out their selection of games!
Amazon Digital Content Subscriptions
Amazon offers great subscription services at reasonable prices. They have a service for different categories like watching tv, listening to music, listening to books & more. Here are some of their best offerings & free trials/discounts.
Amazon Prime Video
Prime Video is a fantastic alternative to Hulu, Netflix, & Disney Plus. Amazon has some great original shows & movies on Prime Video. The membership is $99 but you can get a 30 day trial for free and cancel before it ends to avoid the charge.
Amazon Music lets you listen to a library of millions of songs from any device. It costs $9.99 which is the same price as Spotify & Apple Music. Having an Amazon music account lets you play any song on your Alexa. If you are interested, you can sign up now!
Audible is the easiest way to listen to audiobooks on your phone, computer, or tablet. You can get an Audible subscription or buy an Audible subscription for someone else as a gift. You can get two free audiobooks when you sign up for a free 30-day trial.
