I'd have to say that I don't think a Prime membership just for the video would be worthwhile for most people, even if you didn't already have Netflix.
I've used it a lot - especially love Mozart in the Jungle - but the real draw is free shipping both ways. I buy everything from water filters to oven bags to tech products to shoes and just send back what doesn't work - or what I find for a buck or 2 cheaper in the 30-day window. Recently I've returned a Tivo, a breadmaker, a USB3 hub and a slew of networking products like powerline ethernet, WiFi adapters, range extenders - I'll bet for every $1 of product I keep I send back $3. Considering the razor-thin margins they sell stuff at, they've got to be taking a beating on my business just from shipping costs, never mind having to re-sell all that stuff at refurbish prices...
Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???
