Yesterday, I shared with all of you that Amazon Prime memberships are increasing to $99 on March 20th. Well, there is a way you might be able to grab yet one more year for just $79 — even if you are set to renew at the higher rate!
1. Log into your account and check out your Amazon Prime expiration date. Click on Your Prime from the grey menu bar. From there, click on Manage Prime Membership (you may need to log in again). You will see the date you will be renewing listed in the side bar and the rate you will be charged.
2. Purchase a Prime Gift Membership for just $79. Set the delivery date for the date AFTER your membership expires. For example, if it expires on July 15, 2014, you will set the delivery date to July 16, 2014. Enter your own email address as the recipient’s address. Finalize your order.
3. Go back into your Amazon Prime account and turn OFF auto-renew. Under the side screen, click on End Membership. Click on Continue Membership and check the Remind me 3 days before my membership renews. You can also click on End Membership and your account will remain in effect until your membership period ends.
4. The day after your membership expires, you will receive an email which includes a gift membership. Simply follow the instructions to apply it to your account.
That’s it! A simple way to ensure you get just one more year at the lower rate of $79 rather than $99!! Make sure you share this with your family and friends so that they too can save!!!
