Instead of passing along savings to its customers after reporting massively positive revenues this week and its share price going through the roof, the company has still decided to increase its annual Amazon Prime subscription. At over 100 million Prime subscribers, Jeff Bezos just can’t seem to amass enough money.
On May 11, the cost of a new subscriptions to its annual Prime membership in the U.S. will rise to $119 (currently at $99). On June 16, the price for renewing the subscription for current Prime customers will apply to all renewals starting June 16.
But, here’s a trick. You can lock in another year at the $99 price by doing one simple thing before the May 11th deadline…
Just out to the following link and “gift” yourself a year of Amazon Prime:
After your current subscription runs out, just use the gift you bought yourself.
There’s a couple things to remember, though…
- Turn off auto-renew for your current Prime subscription and let it run out (Amazon will send you a notice).
- The gift subscription is delivered to you in the form of a link in email. Save this email (and link) for when you need to apply it.
