Get a Three-Month Amazon Prime Trial for as Low as $1!

by Tara Kuczykowski on December 30, 2009 · 8 comments

If you've already used an Amazon Prime trial, I've got good news for you! With the purchasing of qualifying textbooks, everyone is eligible for another 3-month trial, and there are several textbooks available for $1, $2 or $3.50.

Amazon Prime gives you unlimited two-day shipping with no minimum order size plus overnight shipping for just $3.99.

1. To get started, choose a qualifying textbook and add it to your cart:

2. Click on Proceed to Checkout.

3. You'll be taken to a window describing the terms of the trial offer. Click on "Start My Free Trial".

4. Finish checking out!

Prime membership will automatically renew after 3 months, but you can go into your account at any time and disable automatic renewal.

Thanks to Mercedes at Common Sense with Money!

Or you can get the trial for free by clicking on the Free Trial and then not buying anything. It also works - I did it.

Just verifying what Vesna said. I did this last year actually purchasing books I needed, but others on the site I got if from simply started their trial and did not complete checkout, but the trial was vaild for the 3 months.

You don't have to buy anything at all to get the free trial, to be honest. You just have to go through the process until you get to the page where you sign up for the Amazon Prime, after that's done you can go back out of your shopping cart and never have to buy a book or anything. You don't have to submit payment, just go through and sign up for Amazon Prime then leave your shopping cart. Go back and make sure you turn off the automatic renewal so you aren't charged at the end of the 3 months and you're done without having spent anything!

The system does allow you to get the free trial without making a purchase; however, that wasn't what Amazon intended when they made the offer so I'd still recommend that you make a small purchase. It's possibly that Amazon will pull the free trial from your account if you don't follow the protocol that they've laid out.
