The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

If you’re new around here and are a frequent Amazon.com shopper, I just wanted to remind you that you can still sign up for a FREE 30-day trial of Amazon Prime! With Amazon Prime, you’ll get FREE 2-day shipping on thousands of items with no minimum purchase requirement, which means you can snag great deals without having to hit the $25 Super Saving Shipping Requirement. AND, since you can ship to other people with your Prime Membership, this will save you time and money that you won’t have to spend at the post office! :)

An Amazon Prime Membership Includes:

*Unlimited, instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Videos on hundreds of compatible devices including computers, TVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles, and set-top boxes.

*Thousands of books to borrow for free, as frequently as once a month, with no due dates through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.

*FREE 2-day Shipping on Items Sold By Amazon
No minimum purchase necessary! WooHoo! :D


Keep in mind that while you won’t be charged for your FREE trial, you will be automatically upgraded to a paid membership plan with a cost of $79 at the end of the trial period. To turn off your Prime Membership renewal, here’s what you’ll need to do:

*Go to Manage Your Prime Membership

*Review the renewal date below the Payment History section.

*Click the Do Not Renew button next to the renewal date. (Note – Your membership will expire at the end of the current period)

That’s it! :) Now just enjoy your FREE 2-day shipping, Instant Streaming, and Kindle Books!

(Thanks, Clip and Follow!)

    It is telling me that I have to order something and then “You’ll complete your Amazon Prime free trial sign up at checkout.” Am I doing something wrong? I don’t have anything I was going to order this very second…

  • Steph says:

    When I click the link for the free trial it takes me to a page and I need to click “get started” When I click that link it says nothing about a free trial but wants to know if I want to sign up and explains the $79 fee. Maybe this is because I did a free trial back in November of last year? I don’t see anything about a free trial?

  • I used the free trial and then paid for the subscription, and its worth every penny!

  • Dawn says:

    Do you have to own a Kindle to borrow books? I read on my iPad and iPhone but I don’t have a Kindle device.

  • Sonya says:

    I initially did the free trial for Prime and then ended up keeping it. I love that I can borrow books to read on my Kindle. I’m a fast reader and it’s getting expensive to keep up with my habit. I also like the instant streaming of tv shows and movies. I have gotten to watch several shows that I missed when they originally aired. As for the cost, if you do even a moderate amount of ordering from Amazon, I think you could save on shipping costs.

  • Melissa says:

    I love Amazon Prime! Between the free 2 day shipping, free movies, free Kindle books which I can view on my Kindle and I-pad, it is more than worth the annual fee. I am sure my family spent more money in the past before we had Amazon Prime looking for items to add on to our orders in order to qualify for the free shipping deals. So having Amazon Prime has actually been a money as well as a time saver.

  • shanel says:

    I clicked the link and I was charged $79! :(

  • Brittany says:

    Well darn, I’m not eligible for the free trail since I just had a free 6 month trail of Amazon Student.

  • Cindy W says:

    When mine was a trial membership, I couldn’t borrow books from the Lending Library. You have to actually be a Prime member.

  • Shop Now says:

    Prime is costly for impetuous shoppers! I’m now a Prime member and anytime I see something I’d like, it’s one-click and 2 days away.

    Before Prime, I’d be sure I had $25 in orders so I’d get “free shipping”, so a lot of stuff went on my wish list, and was never purchased.

    The streaming movies are OK, but they’re either quite old, or quite bad, or TV shows (where are the original WKRP episodes!). But they do look good with a PS3 at HD. So, I’m catching up on a lot of old stuff.

    The Kindle benefits don’t work for me since I use Kindle only on my PC, phone and Nook… but no physical Kindle which is necessary for the lending library.

    I’ll do this for a year, and if I’m not broke, I may keep it up.

  • Jessica says:

    Yes, the free 30 day trial is nice until 6 months later they “conveniently” renew it- after it was canceled. I had to fight with them all weekend to get my $79 back. I am no longer an Amazon Cpcustomer.

  • karebearye says:

    I was just reading on Bargainbabe that Amazon Prime has a new policy and you need to have $25 worth of items to get the free shipping. Anyone know if this is true? I haven’t ordered anything for less than $25 since Christmas.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Then what is the point in having prime? IMHO the movies aren’t that great. A lot of people would jump ship if there was a minimum shipping amount.

    • Shop Now says:

      That’s not correct. The $25 threshold is for non-Prime accounts. For Prime you get…
      FREE Two-Day Shipping on eligible items.
      FREE Standard Shipping on eligible items.
      FREE No Rush Shipping for typical delivery one week after placing an order.

      There are no minimums… (In fact, I received a $4.99 CD today with 2-day ship)

      Of course item’s offered by 3rd party sellers, don’t receive Prime shipping.

      This has worked out well for me in one area… bulk canned cat food, which incurs heavy shipping charges normally… No I can order with free shipping, and ALSO receive discounts for recurring orders.

  • Ashley says:

    I cant figure out how to get it. i get to the very last steps of checkout and i dont see where to finish signing up like it said when i clicked the link,
    Help me?

  • Donna says:

    Prime is great. I did a lot of my Christmas shopping via Amazon and got free shipping every time and I guarantee I saved the amount of the membership in shipping costs. They ship super fast too, even during the holiday rush. There is no minimum order amount required to get the free shipping. You can also set your account to not auto-renew once your year is up so you don’t get the surprise of being charged again once your membership is up. They will let you know when it’s time to renew, but I like the having the choice to renew rather than seeing an unexpected charge on my bank statement. I got a Kindle Fire for christmas, but I used the app for my phone prior to that and I really didn’t notice any difference in purchases except that I couldn’t borrow books with the app.

  • Paige Pearson says:

    I have a gift card balance on my amazon account. Will this fee apply that balance to the auto membership fee and not hit my credit card on file (don’t want husband to know)?

  • Ru says:

    I live in the US.. If I order gifts for my family in the UK will amazin prime still deliver for free?

  • leniesha says:

    After the free trial can you keep the movies and shows that you already added to your watch list

  • leon says:

    does anyone know how to cancel?

  • Jason Cole says:

    IF I DO THE FREE TRIAL, DOES IT PUT ANYTHING ONHOLD ON MY CREDIT CARD OR DO ANYTHING WITH IT RIGHT NOW?

  • Marlon says:

    I have a free trial membership of Amazon Prime and I ordered an item, it shipped for 2 days, but Im nervous if they charged on my Card?
