Amazon reduces Prime fee to Medicade people!

Take a look at the article below. Amazon will reduce fees to medicad and EBT people. This would be really good for those who cannot get out much and need to get quality goods at a low price.

Amazon and Walmart are going head to toe. Theory is that competition is good. I hope it does not lead to cannibalism where competition is so steep someone gets hurt.

If you know some seniors who can't get out much...on medicaid...let them know about this on your block. I will tell the ones I know on Fulton and Walnut.


    Amazon launches a low-cost version of Prime for Medicaid recipients
    Amazon announced this morning it will offer a low-cost version of its Prime membership program to qualifying recipients of Medicaid.

    Also, you can shop on Amazon without a Prime membership. There will be a minimum order for free delivery, and you won't get all the perks (like free video content).

    That said, with the Amazon rewards Visa card, we get 5% back on all Amazon purchases (and 1-2% back on other purchases), which more than covers the membership fee. The 5% now also applies to purchases at Whole Foods

    I hope East Garfield Park low income seniors will hook up to this good deal that would help them have access to better goods. The digital divide will slow them down. Maybe one of the grand kids will help them.

Hello. Is anyone interested in joining WW? I just joined and I go downtown to the meetings. If we can get 15 people interested in attending meetings they would provide a group leader. Then I would ask Harrison Park if we could use a meeting room. If you are interested please contact me with your phone # and your preference for AM, Lunch or PM times. Thank You! Be Well. :-)

Spreading gypsum on your parkway, lawn, garden will help them grow!

Have been using gypsum on our parkway and garden for the past couple years. It works wonders. Makes sense. Tired old dirt can use some help in feeding roots. Menards has 40 lb bags for just $5 bucks last year., You can do every parkway on a block!
