Slice Will Tell You If Amazon Prime Is Worth It Based on Your Shopping Habits

If you use Amazon enough, Prime only pays off for the free shipping. However, this is not for everyone. If you’re not sure if your purchases are justifying the $ 99 Prime price, this calculator will give you a hint.

The calculator is taken from the previously mentioned online store Slice . The app needs access to purchase receipts to work, so keep in mind that you will need to register and link your email account. You can read their privacy policy here , but they use OAuth to access your email, so you don’t need to enter a password.

A company representative also told us:

For email providers that do not support OAuth, such as AOL, iCloud / MobileMe, Comcast, and Cox, we save your email password so that we can process your receipts. Passwords are stored and encrypted in a separate secure database. Slice’s sophisticated algorithms only identify receipts, so we only analyze electronic receipts, not personal emails (unlike Gmail, which reads everything).

Once you give it access, the calculator becomes pretty simple. It sums up all your purchases over the past year, tells you how much you’ve spent, and whether a Prime membership will save shipping costs over time. Keep in mind that if you deleted your receipts from the past year, this will affect the result. Also, only shipping counts, so your own mileage may vary based on other Prime services you use .
