In turn, Walmart is also vying for Amazon customers, as the retailer has been significantly improving its online store in recent years to better compete against Amazon.

Nunberg should not have been interviewed on live TV, not when it was clear he was likely drunk or at the very least, unwell. In a statement given to CNN , Stone denied wrongdoing and said he has been a friend and adviser to Trump for decades.

Amazon has added Medicaid recipients to a program that offers a discount option for the popular Prime fast-shipping program to people on government assistance. Prime typically costs $12.99 a month or $99 for those paying a one-time yearly fee. As of 2016, roughly 44 million people got benefits from SNAP, the program formerly known as "food stamps". (Amazon doesn't disclose its number of Prime subscribers.) Amazon's decision Wednesday to more than double the size of potential customers for discounted Prime could significantly help it in that goal.

Players will also be able to go prone on their backs and fire from the ground, similar to what you can do in Rainbow Six Siege . This also explains why voice actor Katherine Kingsley posted an image on Instagram showing that she's in a recording booth.

Of course, the discount on Prime is no big deal for Amazon. For the same price of $5.99 per month, Amazon offers Prime memberships to any US customer with a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card - the card that's used to disburse funds for assistance programs like Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and Women, Infants, and Children Nutrition Program (WIC). Eligible shoppers need to reapply once a year and are eligible for up to four years. There is no annual commitment and customers can cancel the membership at any time. The Amazon Prime membership gives shoppers perks such as free two-day shipping on millions of products, free photo storage and online streaming of thousands of movies and music. After a 6-month free trial, students pay $6.49 a month or $49 a year for Prime. But customers won't be able to share their Prime membership with a second adult, as with a regularly priced Prime membership. Her youngest son has a rare genetic disorder that prevents her from working full time and makes going to the store more hard.
