Like so many decisions, value will depend on the person. Lots of different benefits with Prime. Some of which will be more/less important to different people. Buy where you find value and don't where you don't.

I have had several issues with the in-house delivery, especially delivering to my office. When I have them drop it on my front porch, it’s normally just fine now, though.
