A few days back (March 13, 2014 to be exact), Jason Cipriani of CNET.Com wrote down an article about Amazon Prime’s expected price hike. Technically, it is not “expected,” since the multi billion online retailer made announcement that Prime’s price will be increased to $99 during the upcoming time period.
This is a $20 difference because the ongoing price is $79. Anyway, Cipriani wrote down how to avoid the additional $20 payment for at least this year so that you’d end up paying the same $79 price for the upcoming time period.
It piqued my attention; I had to do it. Basically, you just log on to your Amazon account and cancel your Amazon Prime membership. You will be taken to a screen with two options. One of them prompts you to continue, given that an Auto Renewal/ Cancellation message will be sent 3 days prior to the expiration of your Prime Subscription; the other option is to simply cancel the membership.
Now you can purchase an Amazon Prime Gift membership (already available at $79) and have it delivered to your email/ address a few days after they have increased the price. This way, you are going to end up paying them the same old – same old price as per the current company policies.
By the way, the idea had me thinking if you can purchase multiple Amazon Prime Gift memberships? Is this possible? Do shed some light on it if you have tried something similar. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
