Thou­sands of movies with­out Wi-Fi

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - AMERICA’S MARKETS -

Many Prime cus­tomers don’t even re­al­ize that a whole li­brary of films can be down­loaded. Se­lect Prime Video ti­tles are avail­able to be down­loaded to com­pat­i­ble mo­bile de­vices, which in­clude Fire tablets, Fire phones, An­droid phones and tablets and iOS de­vices.

Find the Prime ti­tle you want to down­load and open the video details. Af­ter that, tap on “Down­load” to start the process. Note that for TV shows, you will want to se­lect the episode you want to down­load and then look for the spe­cific down­load icon, which will be a down ar­row.

If you want some­thing tan­gi­ble to show for your mem­ber­ship, check out Ama­zon’s Sam­ple Box pro­gram. You choose from a se­lec­tion of theme boxes and re­ceive a credit for fu­ture pur­chases of el­i­gi­ble items re­lated to that box.

For ex­am­ple, Ama­zon has of­fered a lux­ury skin care box stocked with per­fume, ex­fo­li­at­ing gel, mois­tur­izer and skin serum sam­ples for $19.99. You get to try out ev­ery­thing in­cluded in the box and also re­ceive a $19.99 credit to­ward lux­ury beauty prod­ucts.

Ama­zon of­ten of­fers snack food, pet food and nu­tri­tion and well­ness­themed

Pack­age theft from porches is a grow­ing prob­lem as thieves snatch up Ama­zon cus­tomers’ de­liv­er­ies. The re­tailer is tak­ing a creative ap­proach to deal­ing with the is­sue by of­fer­ing a ser­vice called Ama­zon Key In-Car Delivery.

In-Car Delivery works with sup­ported mod­els of ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing 2015 or newer ve­hi­cles from Buick, GMC, Cadil­lac, Chevro­let, and Volvo that have an ac­tive con­nected car ser­vice plan such as OnS­tar. You can set up the in-car op­tion through the Ama­zon Key app. Ama­zon agents will then drop off your pack­ages in your car. It must be parked at an ac­ces­si­ble, ground-level lo­ca­tion.

Try be­fore you buy clothes

Ama­zon Prime Wardrobe lets you use your home as a dress­ing room. Prime Wardrobe works by you fill­ing a box with three or more items of el­i­gi­ble cloth­ing, shoes or ac­ces­sories, up to a max­i­mum of eight.

Ama­zon ships you the box and you have a week to try on the clothes. You can keep the pieces you like, pay for

Whether you’re look­ing to en­ter­tain or in­form your­self, you can find Prime perks that will sat­isfy you.

❚ Mag­a­zines: Ama­zon Prime Read­ing is your go-to source for free ac­cess to is­sues of mag­a­zines, in­clud­ing Vogue, Bon Ap­petit, Pop­u­lar Me­chan­ics, Esquire and Bet­ter Homes & Gar­dens. Start at the Prime Read­ing page. .

❚ Pod­casts and au­dio­books: Au­di­ble is a divi­sion of Ama­zon that’s best known for pro­vid­ing au­dio­books, but Ama­zon also uses it to de­liver a ser­vice called Au­di­ble Chan­nels.

You will need to down­load the Au­di­ble app to get started with Chan­nels. Open the app, tap on the menu and choose Chan­nels for Prime. Here, you can choose from a va­ri­ety of short-form au­dio pro­grams.

I’m there too. Just say, “Alexa, play the Ko­mando on De­mand pod­cast.”
