[EXPIRED] [Amazon] Amazon Prime $67 Sep. 25th

Deals like this only happen once a year or so unless you pick up some Amazon product that has a free Prime subscription included. This deal only applies members that have only used the 30 day trial, or members that haven't paid for prime in the past.

There was a loophole that was used by existing Prime members last time that allowed you to gift yourself the subscription. You had to cancel auto-renewing your subscription and redeem the gift whenever your subscription ended. I'm not sure if it'll work again, but I'll be sure to update on the results tomorrow. Doesn't work sad-smiley-002.gif

Do you know if "new member" would mean just new to paying for it or completely new?
I ask because I have done a 30 day free trial before and canceled afterwards so I have never paid for membership.
I am still on the fence if I would use it enough to justify the $67, but it would be good to know if I am still eligible.

I already have Netflix and Hulu so there isn't likely too much that Amazon has for TV/Movies that I cant get elsewhere (I have also streamed a few shows from internet sites like Vodlocker if I cant get it on Hulu).
I would probably never touch the music services and surely wouldn't use ebooks.
So all that I would really have to recoup my cost is if I make some purchases over the year that are under $35 where I would normally just wait and add a few more items to reach a free shipping level.

I guess assuming I am eligible, I am trying to see if I should be talked into this or not.

Doesn't work anymore - they are not allowing it to be gifted to anyone at all, it is applied directly to the account that buys it,

You're eligible. Since you already have Huluflix, it might be redundant to get Prime. However, if you frequently shop on Amazon, then the free 2-day shipping will easily recoup the subscription cost. I only use Prime for the free shipping (and discounted 1-day shipping), and it's extremely convenient. But if you don't shop on Amazon enough to really utilize the free 2-day shipping or the other services Prime offers, then you're best off saving your money.
