I have previously had the Amazon Prime free 30-day trial twice. Since then, whenever I've clicked through on the 'Try 30-day FREE trial' I'm only given the option to pay £79

This morning I was about to purchase a last-minute xmas gift I need for tomorrow and so I selected Next Day delivery - I continued to review my order before placing and I was given the option of a 30-day FREE Amazon Prime trial :)

I didn't place my order in the end but I did sign up to the free trial!

This may help others - just try and order something that is Prime eligable - I was going to order the Glenmorgangie Whisky (it's their deal of the day currently).

If it doesn't work for others then obviously vote it down to stop others wasting their time ;)

*coughs* - if you need Prime at any time, just create a new account, take the trial with that new account then nominate your existing account as one of the 4 household members to receive the Prime delivery benefit.

In theory, you could repeat this after a month ad infinitum by the way - Amazon impose no limit on the number of accounts per household!

Do you need to use different card details or anything like that?...nice loop-hole if not ;)

You can have as many accounts in your household as you like, all with a single nominee payer (yourself) and a single nominated card (your own).

For example, my cat has his own account (after the £5 Mastercard offer) despite the fact he doesn't possess a kitty Mastercard.;)

Pusskins kindly nominated me to receive Prime deliveries until January

I think it offers you a trial every so often, so if your last trial was 6 months ago, then it could be offering it to you because you can trial every 6 months. I don't think it will be for everyone.

I've just taken up my third 30 day free trial, all 3 came just when I needed them to too.... :)

They seem to offer a trial at least once a year. I've had several.

Yes I did the same last week :-)

This worked for me yesterday. As a previous Prime customer I did not think that I would be eligible, however, it did. Order processed with free one day delivery and watched a film from Amazon Instant Video last night and all working fine.

how do you cancel after the 30 days?

Once you've sign up, just go into the 'Your Prime' menu option and change the auto renew option - it's pretty straight forward and doesn't stop your free trial from running it's full 30-days.

I got it the other day that is 3 times this year. I wish I could keep it just for the TV and movies but cant afford the £70 odd pounds but a good deal for those that can
#16
Worked for me, thanks
#17
Worked for me yesterday also.
No harm in trying again for everyone who's had this in the past.
#18
Warning! I took out a few trial. Then when I went to cancel a couple of hours later I discovered that they had in fact taken the £79 from my account! Complaint still ongoing!

I save my trial every year and use it from 25th November to order all of thos last minute christmas gifts. Much more reassuring to know you'll actually receive what you've ordered before the big day!!

As above - I use my free trial for Black Friday week and it goes pretty much up to the Christmas post deadline.

I've had a problem with one of my deliveries, says delivered when it hasn't been, and they've given me an extra month for free (and also sent out replacement items).
#21
Thanks. Just signed in and got Prime trial!
#22
Ta for this. Got it and was even able to use an expired card on my profile so that they can't charge me when I forget to cancel.
#23
I got another 30 day free trial last month I was a bit dubious tbh as I had one within the year also but it worked fine and set it to cancel when 30days lapsed :) Nice if you can get it for the xmas period :)

That happened to me before - I only got offered it again when I went through the process of ordering an eligible prime product and selected next day - before I got to the final part of actually completely checkout it offered me the Prime trial.

I've previously clicked through on the free 30-day trials and only noticed something further down the page saying I was going to be charged, I assume because I'd already had a trial. Are you 100% sure you didn't just miss the "small print" so-to-speak?

COUGH.Amazon avoid UK taxes,put small retailers out of business.
#30
they are posting out cards to lots of members for free trials both past members and those who havent been

if you have had a previous free trial they take the money out instantly.

Just noticed this last weekend was about to buy a Kindle but changed my mind when realised it was the same price at Tesco and I had points to use for there. I thought them offering me another Amazon Prime Trial was maybe a glitch, left it a couple of days realised it was obviously not so decided to take it up be rude not too lol I've also added 3 other members of my family to the account for their use also. I cancelled immediately (don't want to be stung for £79) just in case I get too hungover and miss a few days in the new year lol By the way Netflix gave me another month free trial last month too (they sent me an email trying to woo me back) it had just ended so a real result :D

I call BS. They take money out if you go past the trial date not before and if they did there would be no "complaint ongoing" since they resolve issues once you contact them by email, telephone or instant chat. It doesn't drag on for days.

Fear mongering.
