Some Amazon prime tricks to avail more benefits

Some Amazon prime tricks to avail more benefits

We all love to watch latest movies and series but today’s world is more focused on Digital media like Netflix, Amazon Prime. To watch movies or any other we need to pay membership to get access. No worry… I won’t fool you by saying Non-working tricks to get Amazon Prime for free, but I will definitely help you with some tricks by which you can avail some benefits.  Let’s get started…

1. Get 1 Free Month of Prime if Package Arrives Late

If you’re a current Prime member, and your package doesn’t arrive within the 2-day guaranteed window, you need to start holding Amazon’s “feet to the fire”. This is also true if you pay the shipping upgrade for 1-day delivery.

In many cases, when this happens, Amazon will extend to you 1 free month of Amazon Prime as a peace offering. The free month won’t kick in until your current Prime membership expires, which is way cool.

To make it happen, simply contact Amazon customer service and politely explain the situation. If they won’t give you a free Prime extension they should at the very least give you a $5 credit added to your account.

2. 30-Day Free Trial Expired?

You can simply open a new Amazon account after your 30-day free Prime trial expires and then try the prime on new Account.

You’ll need a different email address to open a new Amazon account, but that’s not a problem for most shoppers.

if you don’t renew your Prime membership after your trial period ends, they’ll typically email you another free trial opportunity after a certain amount of time.

3. Snag Free Prime With Sprint Cell Plan

Another smart way to get free Amazon Prime is to check out Sprint wireless.

They recently launched a new cell phone plan that includes a free 12-month Amazon Prime membership. The plan is called the Amazon Better Choice XXL plan and is available to both new and current Sprint customers.

If you’re already with Sprint or considering switching providers, it’s definitely a great way to get Amazon Prime for free.

4. Join Amazon Student and Score 6 Free Months of Prime

Who wouldn’t love a free 6-month prime trial and a slick way to cut down significantly on your entertainment and digital reading costs?

To qualify, all you need is an Amazon account, a .edu email address, and be enrolled in at least one college course located within one of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico.

What exactly will you get? Everything that comes with Prime EXCEPT Prime Music and the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library.

Once your 6-month trial expires, you’ll have the option to sign-up for Amazon Prime only $49 a year for up to 4 years.

5. Skip Prime Altogether and Still Score Free Shipping

Perhaps the best way to get Amazon Prime for free is to simply not fork over the $99 annually and still get free shipping.

Guess what? Amazon already offers free shipping on $35 or more, ($25 on books) a threshold that’s much lower than most online retailers. Many of which require you to spend $75 or $99 to qualify for free delivery.

Clever Hack Alert: If your Amazon order falls just short of the minimum order required for free shipping, simply add a “pre-order” item to your cart to get over the hump. You’ll get your entire order shipped for free and then you can cancel your “pre-order” item before it gets shipped and not be charged. Don’t do this too often or you run the risk of Amazon catching on and making you pay for the pre-order items, or worse case, cancelling your account.

Bonus: Apply for Amazon Prime Rewards Visa

The new Amazon prime rewards visa signature card pays you 5% back via reward points on all of your Amazon purchases.

So basically if you order at least $165 from Amazon every month, this Prime Rewards card will pay for your $99 annual membership every year.
