Hey, remember how we all got a free Amazon Prime trial a while back, and have been enjoying frenetic holiday shopping with all the benefits of free shipping, ever since?
Well, that trial is going to expire on January 15th, assuming y’all signed up the same day I did. Just two weeks left to enjoy it. So sad.
Except it’s not sad, because I have great news: Traditionally, Amazon Prime trials have only been open to customers who’ve never had them before. However, right now you can sign up for another 3-month trial, even if you’ve had it before. (Thanks, Corey, for giving me the heads up!)
Now, you cannot renew an existing Prime membership, nor do I know how long this particular offer will last, so here in the age of umpteen million email addresses, I’ll just suggest you go ahead and sign up with an address other than the one that currently has 2 weeks left on its membership. (And let’s face it; most of us had to use an alternate address for the current trial, on account of we’d had free Prime last year and weren’t eligible on that address again.)
Got all that? Good. Here’s what you do:
1) Go add this book to your cart (using the account you want to sign up with). Don’t worry, you’re not buying it.
2) Go to checkout and find the big “Get it with two-day shipping and a free trial of Amazon Prime” offer, and click that.
3) Sign up for Prime as directed.
4) Don’t complete checkout, unless you really need another copy of Pride and Prejudice.
Voila, three more months of Prime for free. Don’t forget to go into “My Account” and then “Manage Prime Membership” to turn off the auto-renew so that you won’t be charged in three months, too.
