If you're like me, you love Amazon and their customer-focused business model. You're also maybe an Amazon Prime member that, up until yesterday, was a mere $79 a year. Pennies really given how much they offer with the service (express shipping, on-demand video, and the Kindle lending library). Well, the dream is over and the service is now $99, but if you ask me, it's still worth it. However, we all want a deal, so if you love Prime but that extra Andrew Jackson is a deal-breaker, you can still renew for $79. Here's how:
- Look up your Prime expiration date.
- Purchase a Prime gift membership here and have it sent to your own email address after your membership is expected to expire.
- Place your order.
- Turn off your Prime subscription auto-renew.
- On or after the date your Prime expires, you should receive an email from Amazon with a year of Prime membership.
