This is a good added benefit. I would like to add, however, that it isn't "free"...just the same as your breakfast at the Hilton isn't "free". Included with your PAID Prime membership? Yep. Free? Nope.

"Incrementally" free, perhaps -- for now. Of course, if they raised the price for Prime as a result, it would cease to be even incrementally "free".

I consider it in the same category as the free local library where I live. Sure, it costs money as a component of my property taxes, but I consider it extremely good value for the money. Same here.

Not saying Amazon may not have plans to raise their Prime subscription rate, but for now, when they add value after I've paid for my annual subscription, it is free. Give me an unexpected donut after I pay for filling up the gas tank? That's a free donut. I like donuts.
