Here are the ways to get Amazon prime for free.
Get Amazon Prime for 1 month for free if your package arrives late
This is one of the coolest and legit way to get free Amazon prime membership. But to avail this benefit you must already have a prime membership. If you order anything from Amazon, and if it does not arrive at your doorstep within the guaranteed time, then you can contact Amazon support explain the situation to them. They will check your order and if it really doesn’t arrive at your door step within the guaranteed time frame, then they will extend your prime membership to one month more as a part of peace making with you.
If you have paid extra dollars for one day shipping, they will even refund your shipping fee incase if it doesn’t arrive within the guaranteed time frame.
If they offered you 1 month extra prime membership means, that extra one month will commence after your current prime membership expires, in that way, your extra one month will not get wasted.
Sign up for Amazon Prime Free Trail using multiple accounts
At first, when i heard about this trick, i didn’t believed it, but until when i got in touch with Amazon customer support and asked about this out of curiosity, they said, yes that is acceptable and can avail multiple prime memberships.
Below is the chat transcript of it
I asked her, if i have two email address, can i sign up for Amazon prime free trail using those two email address? and she said yes. So the trick is, first sign up for 1 free trail using one email address and when it got expired, use another email and sign up for another free trail and use its benefits. This is another cool way to get free Amazon prime.
But i don’t think it will last forever, so use it while it is still there. All you need is a different email address every time when you register a new account.
