I’ve always wanted to try Amazon Prime, but have frankly been too cheap to pay the annual $79 charge. However, Amazon is now offering up a 3 month trial (normally they only offer a 1 month trial) & I had to snag it! If you don’t know the benefits of Prime Membership, you get unlimited free 2-day shipping, unlimited upgrades to next day shipping for $3.99, & there is no minimum order size!
What you have to do is add a qualifying textbook to your cart. At checkout you will see a “Free Prime membership trial” option under the shipping options. This will give you free 2 day shipping & start your membership. I’ve read that you can click on the icon to start the trial & then actually remove the item from your cart & & still get the trial membership for free, but I went ahead & ordered “Jane Eyre” because I don’t have a copy of it & it was only$3.50. But, you might get the trial for free, if you’re so inclined. However, the books are classics & super cheap, so why not order one?
The books that qualify (as far as I know) are:
Romeo & Juliet, $1
William Shakespeare’s Complete Sonnets, $2
Jane Eyre, $3.50
Tess of the d’Urbervilles, $3.50
Great Expectations, $3.50
Oliver Twist, $3.50
When your free 3 month trial is over, it is set up to automatically charge your credit card the $79 annual fee. However, to prevent this from happening, go to your account, Settings, then Manage Prime Membership. You can click to remove the automatic upgrade & will be charged nothing. This is an excellent way to try Amazon Prime, so snag the offer while it lasts!
Thanks Deal Seeking Mom for this info!
