This deal doesn't apply to "trial membership" per chat with an Amazon agent.
Is it true that this is for new members only?
The promotion that is being offered on Saturday is for new Members of Prime that have never signed up for it.
Existing Prime members should read below about the "Prime Gift Certificate" method to get in on the deal
Quote from xxborisxx :
Existing members can buy a gift membership for $72 to use on their own account
Gift memberships are also $72 and can be purchased by existing members. Enter your own email address when asked for the recipients email.
**There is NO CODE. This information is incorrect. The gift email will have a link which you click on to redeem the gift of Prime membership.
In order to avoid the auto renewal of Prime (which is the default option) at the end of your year of prime and so you can use the gift membership you bought for $72 you need to do the following:
Go to "Your account" and then select the sixth option down – "Your Prime Membership". On the left sidebar, you'll see an option to end your membership. The first time you click, it does not end immediately, it gives you more options. The options were something like, "Continue membership", "get a reminder 3 days before membership ends" and "end membership". Again – if you click on "end membership" it does not actually end your membership right away, as you might expect, instead, it gives you the option to either cancel immediately, or have it cancel on the annual renewal date. Chose 2nd option so your Prime will be cancelled at the end of your year of service. The next day after that happens use your gift Prime membership. Hope it helps! mannyaguilar
***NOTE: If you end your membership in order to redeem this you WILL LOSE EVERYTHING STORED IN YOUR PRIME ACCOUNT. All the music, cloud storage, Kindle, etc. It will all be gone if you let your Prime membership expire. Straight from Amazon customer service: "I'm sorry currently there is no option to get gift Prime membership without losing the content stored in your account."
The above "***NOTE" is NOT true. I let my Prime membership expire for a little over a month to redeem my gift membership and I did not lose anything.
