How many times a year can you have an Amazon Prime trial membership?

I had one probably 2 years ago and canceled it after the 30 day trial because I didn’t use it enough to justify the cost. The shipping perks were the only thing to attract me to it. I just got another trial membership when it was offered as I was checking out on a purchase. Will cancel that too after 30 days. How often do they allow someone the free trials?

You can get one 12 months after your last free trial.


You can also sign up for a new az acct each month for 13 months and have a perpetual free trial. Allegedly.

az? I’m not moving to the desert just for amazon prime. :sunny:

You know that arrow on the logo? It doesn’t just look like a smile, it also goes from A to Z.


Unless your “moving to az” comment was sarcastic (which didn’t come across that way), your “duh” comments suggest you knew the smile from A to Z part and just didn’t put 2 and 2 together regarding the comment “az acct”. I thought Script was being rather nice to explain it to you.

Yikes! That’s not what I meant at all. I didn’t recognize az as being an abbreviation for Amazon. When @scripta explained it, my “duh!” comment was meant for me not realizing it. Reading back through the thread, it now seems obvious, but at the time, it wasn’t too me.

Common abbreviation for Amazon is AMZ. AZ is Arizona. One is a river, the other a state.

Until this thread I haven’t seen either used to refer to Amazon. I guess AMZ is the ticker for Amazon on the FRA. I have seen Amazon referred to as AMZN though.
