Amazon Prime full stop multiple account trick not working

10
Found 10th Jul
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.

Thanks

If you are using it then why not actually pay for it. It costs them to deliver and the collective Prime membership fees help make that free for those of us that pay.

It isn't a technique. It's fraud. You are knowingly registering under a new set of details in order to defraud a service offered as a one time sign up.

It doesn't matter where your learned it. If you "totally see my point" then you would pay for it.

They may be cross referencing payment details instead of, or as well as, e-mail addresses and /or addresses.

I’m thinking of subscribing to prime using my student discount. I currently use Spotify for my music and was wondering how amazon music stacks up against it?

I think they have cracked down on it now and are using multiple details to authenticate accounts.
over 4 years, still no issue with new account every month.

My latest free trial has been extended by 2 months due to a late delivery

This site is full of fraudulent deals, it seems it's ok when certain people post them.
