I think Prime is worth it if you like streaming and the Kindle library. After being a Prime member almost since the start I am still on the fence on whether I will renew or not, especially now that the price has gone up. For the past year my 2 day shipping has turned into 4 days or more on some items. Most of the time I don't need my items within 2 days, but it is the principle - they promise 2 days and aren't delivering. I also hate that there is a growing amount of "add-on" items where you have to spend $25. One such add-on item was going for $12 as an add-on. I could go to the store and purchase that item for 1.59 talk about a mark up! To me I have found myself shopping elsewhere and usually saving money even locally with taxes included. I don't use streaming and though I have a Kindle I don't use the lending library. I think it totally depends on how you will use it if it will be worth it or not.
