    Here's how you get it for one additional year for $79 instead of renewing for $99:

    1. Check the date that it renews.

    2. Buy a Prime gift membership. Under recipient put your own email address. Set it to be sent the day of your renewal.

    3. Cancel auto-renew on your current membership any time before the day it's scheduled to renew.

    4. Profit. :hat:

    Yes. It's still worth every penny.

    Also, from what I understand, if you ever receive anything after the promised date you can call Amazon customer service and they'll extend your Prime by one month for free. And you can do this up to 12 times a year.

    It doesn't. There's a big lawsuit coming there way that was announced a few days ago because it doesn't.

    That lawsuit sounds like horseshit. They claim that Amazon makes up the cost of free shipping by rolling it into the price of the item. But 99% of the time, I can't find a better price than Amazon.

    oh good, I thought I was crazy or something.

    It seemed to me you got free 2 day shipping, but you have to pay for a service to get free shipping so in reality it really isn't free.

    I don't think I save any money by using Prime.

    But I can order just about anything, and get it in two days. I also can watch streaming movies for free.

    Worth every penny.
