(Updated 1/15/19) Maybe you started a free trial and forgot to use it. Or maybe life got crazy and you didn’t use it enough to know if it was worth keeping. In any case, the good news is that you’re NOT out-of-luck when it comes to free trials with Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Hulu. Here’s how you can score a free trial extension with all three popular online services.
Very few Amazon shoppers are aware that you can essentially score a free 2-month trial to Amazon Prime.
Once your free 30-day Prime trial is close to expiring, like on day 29, simply go to your account and cancel your subscription.
By doing so, it will automatically trigger an alert that offers you another 30 days of Amazon Prime for free.
Be sure to accept the trial extension offer and enjoy 30 extra days of Prime at NO charge.
A great time to consider this “60-day free trial” is early November as you’ll score free 2-day shipping all the way through Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas.
(Note: This can only be done ONE time.)
Once your 30-day Netflix free trial is almost over, hit them up via Live Chat and ask for an extension.
I did this recently and just explained that I wasn’t able to test drive my Netflix trial like I was hoping.
They immediately offered me another free 30 days. Sweet! Took like 5 minutes of my time.
The screenshot above details me live chat session.
Hulu Plus will also offer you another free trial if you play your cards right.
I made it happen via a live chat operator (see screenshot above).
The chat operator made my account eligible for another free trial which was great because it allowed me to start the trial when it worked best for my family.
Hulu allowed me to select either the 30-day or 7-day trial.
The 7-day trial is for the live TV package, while the 30-day trial is for the limited commercial or no commercials plan.
