does anyone know if I renew my prime will I be charged $39.99? I am a student and have a student account. Or will they charge me the 79?


Mine renewed at $39.99, but if I remember there was something about a limit on how many times you could do it for that price...I can't remember for sure though.

Do they let you pay for it with credit/gift cards yet?

AFAIK you could always cancel and they'd refund you the remaining time.

Hmmmm I think I would definitely opt for 7.99 a month around the holidays instead of paying $80 a year.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I'll stick with $79 a year. $6.58 a month. Plus I pay once and then it's out of the way (for a year).

I think they are offering the $7.99 plan to everyone. If you see the $79 a year plan on the prime home page click on it. There, they should give you the option between choosing the $79 a year or the $7.99 a month.

Has anyone noticed a significant drop in their Prime Service? I am regularly ordering stuff that takes well beyond the 2 day shipping to deliver. I noticed more of their items are becoming fullfilled by a third party as well.

I definitely won't pay the equivalent of Netflix streaming price for a year. Prime's streaming selection is quite small by comparison. They haven't added anything new in like 2 months either.

I still don't get the 7.99 offer. When I click on Prime, it brings me to one page and the only option available is $79 - with one button to charge my credit card. Oh well.

Strange how a question made it into the deals section. In any case, sticking with the yearly membership, but can see how a monthly, but more costly one, would be good for some. But again dont see how its a deal either, just a new option for prime membership.

Stupid question but when is the best time to start a one year subscription? January 1 or right now in November? I know it is for a full year and largely a matter of preference, but I was curious (kinda like if you prefer your credit card statement to end at the beginning or end of the month).

Didn't they just add all the Star Trek shows/movies? That's enough (mostly) exceptional content to keep you busy for a year, it lasted me a year and a half.

After creating a account under my wifes name, it shows the trial plus the $7.99 a month option. Maybe my thinking this is only for new customers was right.

I wonder if Amazon plans to extend this to current customers that do not have prime.

I have had 2 prime trials one in 2008 and one sept. of this year and I was offered the $7.99 a month deal. My amazon account was created in 2007 so I don't think its for new customers only. I guess if you ever had a real amazon prime membership it is possible you wouldn't get this deal.

Yeah, I had prime for a year and then cancelled. It's all good. I'm not sold on the instant streaming because they basically have the same shows Netflix does. But since I have been paying Netflix $8 a month for streaming only for the last 6 years, I may stick with paying Amazon $8 a month just to take advantage of the free 2 day shipping again. Maybe that would prompt me to actually buy stuff from Amazon again.

Not a bad deal, Wish I saw this earlier :( signed up last week with the student pricing so I could get some BF/Christmas shopping done but this would have been better, I don't really order too much from amazon itself, but more from the third party ppl. Oh well, Prime instant video isn't so bad! (given the somewhat limited selection)

thanks. I logged out, and then used the link you posted. that is the only way the 7.99 option would appear for me. I tend to do most of my amazon shoping around the holidays, when the shipping time is more important.

rest of the year when I do buy, I usually just pad orders for the free super saver shipping.

I do have the option, hope it's still there in a couple weeks as I'd rather start my month right before Black Friday so I can use it for all my Christmas shopping.
