The messaging on a customer-facing portal describes subscriptions as “fun to discover” and leverages a company’s repute (“relax, we are always here for you”) and ease-of-use as pivotal offered points. As for Prime-exclusive deals, right now we can collect adult a giveaway month of Dropbox Plus and dual weeks of Amazon Rapids for free, among others.
