Now with the Holidays so close great Amazon Deals will be popping up. I do not buy anything unless it is free shipping but am to cheap to pay the $ requirements for free shipping. Here is how I get Free Amazon Prime Shipping for one whole month and no worries of my credit card getting charged the Automatic Renewal Charge. I have done this prior years and this works!
I found this deal from the picture above on a coupon website. This is my first Amazon purchase close to the Holidays. So I activated the one month free trial Prime Amazon Membership which can give you free shipping on Amazon.com (not all offers qualify for free shipping with Prime, when shopping look for the Prime symbol).
Amazon will charge everyone who does not cancel there membership after the 30 day trial ends. I want to use the free offer the whole month but do not want to forget to cancel! I just signed up and change my settings for no automatic renewal after the trial period!
How to sign up?
Amazon makes signing up is easy. Most coupon websites (where I find the best deals) will let you know when an item qualifies for free Prime shipping. I put the item in my cart and proceded to checkout. Because this item qualified for free 2 day shipping with Prime Membership Amazon asked me if I wanted save money on shipping and join. Just click the yellow box saying ” Start a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime”.
How to stop the Automatic Credit/Debit Card Renewal Charges
Do not wait, turn off the automatic renewal right away so you do not forget! It will sneek up on you fast if you wait.
* Under Member Quick Links, click Manage Prime Membership
* On the left, it will say Hello and your name. Below that it will say on what day Amazon will charge you $99 for a year of Prime Membership.
* Click the Do not continue link.
* Three options will pop up, remember you want free shipping for one month so you click Do not Continue. The correct one to click will say “Membership will end after the free trial” and give you the end date.
That’s it now you will get no suprise charges on your credit/debit card and can actually enjoy and use the free shipping for one full month. The free 2 day shipping is also nice as you get closer to the Holidays.
Can I do the free trial again after it ends?
No, you can not from your same Amazon.com membership. This is why I wait to the online Holiday Shopping Deals to Activate Mine.
Other ways to Save on Amazon
Amazon has other Free Memberships google Amazon mom. Amazon also has a membership for only students (forgot what it was called) which I have never used.
If you want free Amazon gift cards read about these Apps. I save and get free things (like the toy above) on Amazon with these apps.
These Apps have a better Amazon Payout per point if you wait to redeem them at a higher payout:
