Opened my Amazon (underground) app yesterday to see if it could scan QR codes and I got a "try amazon prime trial free" popup right away. It was all instant once I tapped on it cause I had credit cards on file.



Additional note: In the past the regular free trial on a second try would just charge you. I hadnt actually checked if they sneakily charged me full price cause I had a trial in the distant past and the emails said it was a trial, but even if so I could call in in and get that canceled but I am currently using it. For now all seems well. This of course would also work for you if you hadnt gotten to try amazon prime trial in the first place. Enjoy wave

I have too much digital content to lose (if banned) vs. scamming Amazon.

Not to mention amazon is like the largest retailer in the world or close to it and getting banned from that has its own problems.

Thanks did not know. Possibly this is the ONLY reason why I was allowed to do it thru the app? I will assume this why the thread is going negative. However the ultra convince of this popup cant be beat.

You don't need a gmail trick you just need different email accounts for each prime account so yes you will have a bunch of different accounts in the end

You'll have different Amazon accounts but only one email account

Apple@gmail
A.pple@gmail
A.p.ple@gmail
All of these will go to apple@gmail but Amazon treats these as new emails

They don't notice it's all linked to the same address and real persons name? Do they actually ban people over this? I know netflix doesn't cause it increases their viewer stats. Microsoft quit caring if you pirate windows to increase usage stats too. It's common these days.

Haven't heard of anyone getting banned for this. Only time I ever hear of people getting banned is when they return too much stuff to Amazon
