Here's an easy way to 'upgrade' your Prime trial from 'free Next-Day delivery' to the Premium 'Next-day by 1pm' service :)
Went to place an order with Amazon for some new WD Greens and noticed that there is an option to select one-day delivery with a free trial of 'Amazon Prime'.
Selected the Trial and then noticed a new delivery option 'Next-day delivery by 1pm'.
Perfect .. except that this option costs an additional £4.49 PER ITEM!
So I went on to the live chat and told the guy I needed the order tomorrow morning.
He REMOVED the £8.98 delivery charge!
Wife asked the same thing before she just placed an order for 20 boxes of Nakd bars - the Amazon agent also removed the charges!
02:01 PM BST : It's okay - shipping is free with Prime :)
02:02 PM BST Amazon(Amazon): Cool :)
02:02 PM BST :
Want it tomorrow, 25 July? Order it within 4 hrs 57 mins and choose One-Day Delivery at checkout. Details:)
02:03 PM BST Amazon(Amazon): Yes, please use that option while placing the order, if you see any additional charges on delivery I'll remove the charges.
02:03 PM BST : Shame the 'get it by 1pm' option is £4.49 per item
If I choose that option, can you also remove the charges!:D
02:03 PM BST Amazon(Amazon): I'll stay online till you complete the order.
Yes. We will remove the charges.
Please place the order.
02:04 PM BST : To confirm, if I choose
£4.49/item Express Delivery : get it by 1pm tomorrow, Friday, July 25
You will refund the charges?
02:04 PM BST Amazon(Amazon): Yes. :)
02:04 PM BST : Wow, amazing
02:04 PM BST Amazon(Amazon): Please place the order, I'll stay online till you finish the order and once you place the order, I'll remove the charges.
02:05 PM BST : Doing it now :)

02:07 PM BST Amazon(Amazon): I've removed the shipping charges. Please check the order and confirm.
02:07 PM BST : Just a moment

02:08 PM BST Amazon(Amazon): You’re welcome. Is there anything else I can help you with today?
