Unhappy Seachem Prime or Top Fin Ammonia Remover?

I recently bought a bottle of Top Fin Ammonia Remover for emergencies when power outages occur. It's pretty much just a water conditioner that also neutralizes ammonia.
But today I went to a different Petsmart, and found the Seachem Prime everyone is always talking about, and I read it conditions water and neutralizes ammonia AND nitrite AND nitrate.

Now I don't know if I should return the Top Fin bottle for the Seachem one. What do you think? I already have a water conditioner, but I did need an ammonia neutralizer for emergencies. I don't know if I also need a nitrite and nitrate neutralizer too.

P.s. I'm a beginner so sorry if this is a stupid question with an obvious answer. C:> And I don't have fish yet, because my tank is cycling.

Prime, no doubt!
Prime vs. top fin is like comparing a Ferrari to a Ford Focus!

Haha, ok, Prime it is then! XD I will try to return the Top Fin bottle as soon as possible, before my chance to return it expires. XD
