Amazon Prime full stop multiple account trick not working

Posted 10th Jul 2018
Hi all, with Amazon Prime day on the horizon I just tried to create a new account by inserting a full stop into my gmail address, whilst using my normal billing address and payment card and it says;

Our records indicate that you are no longer eligible for an Amazon Prime free trial. You can still sign up for a paid membership below.

This ALWAYS normally works, does someone know if they have had a crackdown on this type of thing? Also does anyone know of an alternative? I created a brand new gmail account so it must be my address and/or payment card that is now the blocker.
