The delivery method is not linked to a single purchase limit. In all, 90 Brazilian cities have the benefit, including the metropolitan regions of São Paulo, Brasília, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte. Capitals and the main cities in the South and Southeast regions will have deliveries in up to two business days – as announced in early 2019 in Brazil. Previously, free shipping was offered on the website for purchases starting at R $ 149.
In addition, Prime subscribers can access the entire catalog of films and series offered by Amazon Prime Video. The service, which is one of Netflix’s main rivals, features successful original productions such as American Gods and The Boys. You can watch the movies on your computer and in the app for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones. It is worth mentioning that current Prime Video subscribers will switch to Amazon Prime automatically.

Amazon took advantage of the announcement to release Prime Music and Prime Reading services to Brazilian users. The music streaming platform has more than two million tracks without ads between content playback. Like its main competitors, the service offers the possibility to download files for offline playback. In addition to a web player, Prime Music has applications for Android and iOS smartphones (iPhone and iPad).
Compared to Spotify, for example, Prime Music offers a limited music catalog. However, Amazon has a version of the service called Music Unlimited that, in turn, brings more than 50 million songs for streaming for an additional R $ 16.90 per month.
Amazon Reading gives you access to an exclusive selection of magazine eBooks published in Brazil. The platform is accessed through the Kindle app, with versions for Android and iOS, or through the Kindle digital book reader.
Amazon Prime has a 30-day tasting period. Therefore, it is possible to test the service package for free for a month before opting for a subscription. This is the biggest launch of the program, in 14 years of history. The service is already used by more than 100 million people in 18 countries.
