After a year of discoveries about Amazon's treatment of its employees, products for privacy violations and huge government tax bribes, some people have rejected their membership in Amazon Premier in protest.
But boycotting a characteristic of a company that has its own feelings in every corner and crevice of your online life will not do much to hurt Amazon. Amazon Web Services is the main backbone of the Internet and is impossible to avoid. The first subscription costs $ 12.99 a month. Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world and has more money than God. In 2017, Amazon accounts for 44 percent of sales in the United States for e-commerce.
You will never pay Amazon profits tax with the cancellation of the Prime Minister. That's the way more fun – and probably, more efficient – to be sand at speeds. So I plan to never pay for the prime minister and instead use free trials instead.
I've been doing this for years, and on the way to perfecting this care, I cried once or twice, so you can learn from my mistakes.
Step 1: Open a new email account
You've probably already used your daily email address in a test trial in the past, which means you can not use it again to get a new free trial. Open your favorite email service-Yahoo, AOL, MSN, and start a new address. I avoid creating burners in Gmail because I have used Google products for many things and this can get confused. Simply do not use one of these fake e-mail addresses (such as Email Email or Guerilla Mail) that do not actually allow you to access a secure mailbox because you will actually need to use this mailbox to confirm your trial and check it updates.
Note: Most e-mail providers will set a limit on the number of accounts that you can open with the same phone number. Because you will connect this email and an amazon account with your credit card details, you'll probably want to enable two-factor authentication. If you want to be extra-secure, you can buy a cheap prepaid phone and use that number to receive 2-Finnish text codes.
When you reach the ceiling, switch to the next email client. There are hundreds there. One day, if I live hundreds of years, I'll run out of e-mail clients. But it's like thinking about the hot death of the universe: I do not.
Step 2: Get a password manager
This is a key part of the game. Do not skip it. Please, take it from me – you will want an easy way to keep these announcements right after you make a few dozen of them. Not only will you need to remember the credentials of your Amazon account login, but all the burner email accounts.

Use Lastpass or your preferred password manager if you do not already have one. The use of a password manager will also help to make your online life generally safe.
Step 3: Start the trial
Sign out of what Amazon account you are already in and start a new email address just made. From there, click Try Prime, anywhere on the site. You will be able to find it, it's fucking everywhere and never leaves you alone. Go ahead and "try" the Prime Minister.
I'll ask you to add your credit card, but that's fine. We will make sure that Amazon will never charge him for a prime minister at some point.
At present, it seems that Amazon strictly does not apply the rules on how many free tests can be registered for one person. Some people in this thread at Reddit reported that Amazon had put an end to their trials in about 30 applications. Terms and conditions of Amazon Premier do not say that you can not continue collecting free trials, although it says that the company "can terminate your premiership at our sole discretion without notice."
I through Amazon Amazon to ask whether, or how, they follow the new prime accounts, and will update if I listen to them back.
Step 4: Complete the trial
It's time to cover Jeff Bezos. Immediately after the start of the trial, go straight to the end.
To do this, go to your account in the top bar and then the prime minister. You may need to spend a moment to activate the trial – there is very little lag when you sign up when these options become available – but then you will see a defect in your membership on the left sidebar. Near the bottom, there will be a link that says "End of court proceedings and advantages" or "Remind me before it is renewed". Remember, you are unlikely to check any email address with which you signed in, so you want end it does not recall.

From here they will take you through the most common path of user experience that I have seen. Step step and continue by clicking "Cancel my advantages", even when the page will try to stay you.
After several attempts to keep you, you will reach the cancellation page. In small print, you will see that this option terminates your membership at the end of a month, and you are free to use the trial benefits until then.
I learned my lesson about not giving up the hard road once. I forgot to finish the trial and saw that I was charged with Amazon membership for months without understanding – and I had no idea which email address was to blame. I had to log in to every Amazon account and in the mailbox (I almost forgot my passwords because I had not used Lastpass) to try and find the culprit and cancel my subscription. Do not be like me, I want you to avoid this mistake.
Step 5: Live your life
You are free to use all the benefits of the Prime in the next 30 days, free of charge. Sometimes I set a reminder to my calendar when it's over, so I know when it needs to be restored if you need it. But since you ended your trial just as it started, it's not necessary to recall, and in fact, the site will remind you that your benefits end up each time you apply. Also, you obviously do not have to repeat this process every 30 days of a point – you can make a new one whenever you need it.
Bonus Step: Look Inside
Do a little introspection on how often you use the Amazon Prime for dumb little bullshit that you can grab in a small local store. One day, Amazon is likely to change as it confirms new accounts. Maybe today is that day. Until then, you can live fast and die with free shipping.
