How to get every single one of your holiday purchases shipped for free this year

Amazon Prime Free Trial

There are definitely plenty of upsides to living in the internet age, and not having to deal with the insanity of holiday shopping has to be one of the biggest ones. While older generations battle through hours of traffic and trample each other to save $50 on an HDTV, we do our holiday shopping from the comfort of our own home, and we save just as much money, if not more, in the process. But shipping costs can often eat into your savings, especially if you’re making big purchases like a TV. Lucky for you, we’re going to remind you of a simple way to get every single one of your holiday purchases shipped for free this year.

Duh… Amazon Prime.

Prime offers tons of benefits that are all pretty great, but it started as a way to get express shipping on all of your Amazon purchases at no additional cost. For many people, that’s still the biggest benefit of the $99/year service. It’s true that you’re missing out if you’re not already a Prime subscriber, but holding out is about to pay off big time.

Right now, you can follow this link and sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. Why is that so significant right now? Because 30 days of free Prime carries you through Black Friday right up to the holidays, which means all of your holiday purchases this year can be express-shipped for free. Then, if you’re not into Prime for any reason at all, you can cancel on day 29 and never pay a dime.

Here are some highlights from Amazon regarding all of the biggest benefits you get from Amazon Prime:
