Re: Amazon Prime Trial Part 2 - Another Free 3 Months!

Yeah, I had a 3 month trial end, and the next day I used the OP's link for another three month trial. So that's two in a row, but not necessarily in the same calendar year (I started the first trial in October of '09).

I'll just ride these trials out until I can't get them anymore, then buy a year membership. I've gotten so used to the perks that I would miss them if they weren't available any longer...

I'd pop for Prime (and did) without a free trial. I use Amazon for almost everything I buy and it's really nice to get stuff in two days.

Re: Amazon Prime Trial Part 2 - Another Free 3 Months!

For those using these trials, has anyone had anyone other than UPS or USPS delivering your stuff?

I had to quit Prime because they started using a shady courier service here, and they've been doing this in a lot of bigger metro areas. Look up Amazon and A1 Courier for a real eye opener.

I'm with you, bunk. We had the same problems with A1 last fall.
I signed up for this current 3 month trial, and so far my three shipments have all been UPS, and 1-day delivery, to boot.

They have been using the courier a lot less since I started prime. Thats what I like about it. Most comes UPS but some comes usps priority. Only 1 came by courier.

Just tried it, and just got the 3 month Prime trial. Thanks OP!
Awesome.
I dunno how Amazon stays in business, but I'm glad they do.

Re: Amazon Prime Trial Part 2 - Another Free 3 Months!

I just did this and only received a 1-month trial. Not complaining though, free shipping is free shipping. Just wondering if the 3-month thing is up or if I did something wrong.

I'm only getting one month, too.
Anybody have any insight?

UPDATE:
Interesting. If I sign in as my wife, I'm offered 3 months.

usually from the masses who don't check around for prices and such. i know people who just go to amazon and buy whatever without even bothering to check prices. i only buy from amazon whenever they're cheap.

Velocity Express is ruining my love of amazon and prime right now with their shady no good ways. Never once had a problem with FedEx or UPS, but with them about every other order has drama, straight up lies about delivery, or is left practically on the street. Its ridiculous. I have prime and just today I ordered from someone else because it was time sensitive and I cant trust amazon wont use VE and screw the whole thing up.

I want my UPS back.

Curious about something, if you pre-order an item with Prime but it expires a week before will they add extra charges for shipping?

No, any order made while you were a Prime member stays that way unless you cancel or change it.

Velocity Express is the worst! Most of my orders went from 2 day UPS to 5 or 6 days with VE

I've never had any problems with Amazon until a Velocity Express package of Blu-rays never showed up. Their tracking said "Redeliver" and after two weeks went by nothing happened (to be honest, I forgot about the shipment). Velocity had no clue what happened and Amazon had to reship. I know crap happens, but UPS and FedEx have never caused me any problems.

I had to get replacement orders twice from Amazon when VE never showed. I got one order today for a single disc that came via UPS. I hope they dumped that courier, they sucked.

They turned off my 3 month free trial yesterday afternoon. Haven't tried to see if I can get another one yet.

Re: Amazon Prime Trial Part 2 - Another Free 3 Months!

My trial ended today and I did the Pride and Prejudice thing again and got another month free. I'm good through April 30th now! If it helps, I used a different browser to do it because I had cookies saved on my primary browser.

Re: Amazon Prime Trial Part 2 - Another Free 3 Months!

I was happy to have this extended trial but found I didn't use it all that much. I was making a bunch of small orders around the holidays when they had all their daily/hourly deals, but since then my orders slowed way down.

I just tried it to see what happens and also am getting an extra one month trial offer showing up. I decided not to do it right now since there is nothing I want to order at the moment. I will try it again when there is something I want to purchase to better maximize the free month. I don't want to lose any days. Hopefully I will still have the offer later on.

Thanks a lot, it's working for me too. I'm going to hold off for a little while before activating it as well though.
