You need to do this.

I did 80% of my christmas shopping online with Amazon – because I had free shipping. Honestly, why should I drive across town with my patience-less 4-year-old and try to brave the mall when I can buy it online competitively AND with free shipping? That is precisely the reason that people hate christmas. I ENJOYED my holiday shopping at Amazon and I found myself taking advantage of their Gold Box deals a lot more, too. They really do have some sweet bargains. I enjoyed Amazon Prime so much that I actually might consider paying for it after I get a few paychecks under my belt.

They’ve had some 1 month trials since I got my 3 month trial, but I’m pleased to see them doing another 3 month trial.

Yes!

Amazon is offering a FREE 3 month trial to Amazon Prime when you buy eligible textbooks. New accounts to Amazon Prime and to customers who have had Amazon Prime trials in the past.

Here’s how:

  1. Add one of the following books to your Amazon Shopping Cart: Romeo and Juliet $1, William’s Shakespeare Complete Sonnets, $2, or the Jane Eyre or Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Oliver Twist, or Great Expectations $3.
  2. Click on FREE Two Day Shipping option on the right side of the page.
  3. Proceed to checkout.
  4. You will then be shown the details of the Amazon Prime Trial Offer. Accept it.
  5. Complete your purchase.

This will automatically renew if you don’t cancel after 3 months. It is $79 for a full year. You can turn off auto renewal but visiting your Amazon Account, Manage Prime Membership.

Ho Ho Ho

I’m not talking about your Friday night activities (this time). I’m talking about the Christmas season, which was thrust upon us 2 months ago by retail stores but is finally within reach.

Here’s a little (free) audible foreplay to help you get in the mood:

Check out the 25 days of free Christmas Music on Amazon here. You’ll want to bookmark this page, as they will be offering a new freebie song every day.

And, you can get your free iTunes song download of the week here. (Hooooootie does Christmas.)
Also, Amazon has 100 Mp3 entire albums marked down to just $5 for the month of December. Check those out here.

Thanks for the reminder, AbsolutePunk

Don’t forget that there’s only a little over 24 hours left to get $3 toward any MP3 download from Amazon.

I picked up the new Weezer, Raditude! I’m jammin to it as we speak. Helluva $2 deal, ya’ll.

When I used the promo code, I got a NEW 1-use promo code in my email towards a online video purchase. It says:

Free Amazon Prime. Again.

I got in on this when it was a 3 month free trial, and I AM LOVING IT. I think I’ve picked up something on amazon at least twice every week since I’ve had it.
Between the gold box deals and free 2 day shipping, you really can’t beat it.
