Default Amazon Prime membership $72 today only

Not available for existing members, so here's the workaround:

1. Turn off auto-renew on your Prime Membership first
2. Purchase a gift membership and send it to yourself. You can choose the delivery date so set this a day after your current membership expires
3. Gift memberships don't expire, so you can get multiple years worth of renewals at this price if you want

Don't forget that you shouldn't be paying full price on Amazon - look for ways to buy Amazon (or Kindle) gift cards at a discount, e.g.

Recent AMEX $25 rebate when spending $100 at Staples
Chase INK cards giving 5 points per dollar at office supply stores
Buy discounted Sears gift cards and use them to buy Amazon gift cards at Sears stores

How do you turn off auto renew? I've logged on to "Manage Your Prime Membership" page but I'm not getting that option - only being told that I will be charged on a particular date.
cheers

You have to cancel membership.

My wife has the Prime membership and it renews today, the credit card charge has already gone through. Bug**r

It was still letting me cancel online with a cancellation date of today. The credit card charge is still pending so hopefully it will not get processed. If it does I ask for a refund. Gift membership for Mrs L purchased, starting tomorrow.

Thanks Tonrob, that was good timing.

I'm in the same boat. Auto renew day was today and it has already gone through my credit card.
I always wonder about these specials for new members only, why wouldn't a company want to reward loyal existing customers.

That's what they rely on...people forgetting to cancel the auto renew payments.
