Amazon Prime is the company's most popular subscription service. The membership includes guaranteed two-day shipping and an "all you can order" deal -- with an annual fee of $99. Since going public in 2005, the service currently has over 10 million members.

With all of the outlined perks the membership comes with, many don't realize there are a few hidden ones, too.

If two-day shipping doesn't suit your fancy, the membership also comes with free same-day and two-hour delivery. In order to qualify for these specific shipping deals, however, you must live in one of the participating cities. Additionally, you must order an item that has one of the two shipping options.

Another cool perk the membership offers is sharing your account with someone else. With this perk, you can allow another person to access your payment information in addition to your shipping and exclusive brand benefits.

Prime pantry can also be a useful perk. This benefit allows you to order food in bulk and get it all delivered right to your doorstep. As long as you opt for no-rush shipping, you can essentially order whatever products you want at no additional shipping cost.

Now that you've learned about all of the hidden Amazon Prime perks available, cheap out some of the hottest gifts that won't break the bank:
