Found 6th Jul
I ordered something off Amazon on tuesday and accidentally clicked one month free trial of Amazon prime. I'm not that bothered about it as I order maybe one item half a dozen time off the site each year. Cut a long story short, said item has not arrived and Amazon have extended my free trial till September. How do I make the most of this? Think my son would like to watch the grand tour with jezza and mates but apart from this, I have no clue what the advantages are

I have a smart tv. I don't really know what a smart tv is. You get the idea I am not really interested in tech?

just tell amazon you clicked by accident and you will get refunded.

Just cancel it and move on...

Refunding a free trial, how's that work?

Oh. Didn't read properly.

Advantages are, free next day delivery. That's pretty much it for me. Their TV side of it isn't up to much other than one or two of their own shows. You still have to pay extra for a lot of the stuff. You could also use their music streaming service but I found it didn't have as much content as other services. It is usable though.

That's a laugh. Still waiting for a parcel I ordered on Tuesday.

I fully intend to cancel it. What I want to know is how to make use of it in the mean time

It's amazon prime day on the 10th, so you might benefit from some good deals.

There will have to be some really good deals on there to restore my faith in Amazon at the moment. You would not think it could be so difficult to deliver a washing line.

Yeah tell me about it. Ordered a deal from Hukd on 29th June and still not got them. They've just told me will be 2-5 weeks. Didn't say that when I bought them!!

Good job I'm on a permanent trial with them and I don't actually pay for the service.

Not sure if you're aware but you don't have to wait to cancel it just before it runs out. You can cancel now but it won't stop until the official trial end date.

I found that button. I will probably do that. I've never had a problem with Amazon before but right now I am ready to strangle them with the washing line. I will see what the supervisor has to say when they email me. All I want to do is hang the washing out......

I ordered on Tuesday and delivery was Thursday. Didn't turn up so onto live chat . Very sorry, will deliver tomorrow and take an extra month trial. Email this morning saying it is on the road for delivery, still no sign. Back on live chat, so sorry we will guarantee tomorrow. Said you promised me that yesterday. The answer was to cancel the order and get it delivered by the fastest method by a different courier. That turns out to be Sunday. When I pointed out that was even longer than I had already been promised twice they said it might come early so now I have to stay in tomorrow too in case it comes. Not a happy psychobitch

Someone already outlined all the benefits above, not much more we can do

So as far as I can see there really aren't many benefits. Why do people pay £80 a year for this?
