Amazon Prime costs $119 a year, but is it really worth it? That’s a question many people will ask themselves before deciding to renew their membership — or sign up for one in the first place.

I’ve been thinking a lot about whether that $119 is money well spent or if I should cancel my membership.

So, I went through Amazon’s list of Prime benefits (free two-day shipping, streaming of movies and TV shows, Whole Foods Market discounts, the ability to borrow books, etc.) and created a quiz for myself.

I wanted to share the quiz with you in case you’re also struggling to determine whether Prime is worth it or not.

For some people, the shipping benefits alone make Prime a good value. “Amazon addicts” don’t need this quiz. It’s more of a tool for people who are on the fence about their membership.

Are you ready to find out if you’re getting your money’s worth with Amazon Prime? Let’s get to the quiz…
