Amazon Prime

Alright, so I signed up for a free trial through Amazon Prime 2 months ago.


I didn't use it because I don't buy things as we've talked about in #BuyingBlackIntentionally


Honestly, I probably clicked on the free trial button because it wouldn't go away.


Anyways, around Christmas, it was going to charge me so of course I was all set to cancel it.


The alarm was set and EVERYTHING!


I used it a total of one time which was to order a present for my son.



 


When I went in to cancel the membership they offered to extend for another 30 days.


Of course my first thought 'THIS IS A SETUP!'


Then I started thinking like OKAY THIS IS IT.


I'm going to really use it and see what all the fuss is about...


Guess what I found out in that second free trial month: NOT A THING!


I didn't go on Amazon again for the whole month because I have nothing to buy!!!!


Insert plastic surgeon telling me I need to lose 23 lbs before I can get my breast reduction.


So here I am.


Last day of the second free trial and rushing to buy a juicer, glass bottles and gallon size water bottle.


You know, because I have to start this weight-loss journey for my breast reduction surgery that is coming the first week of April.


So I place my order for all three items which came up to $135 in total.


(I will detail product brands and review them at a later date)


I used my $25 coupon that Amazon Prime offered so the total price was around what I was expecting to pay for the juicer alone.


Lil Prime might be worth something after all.




So here I am at 11:30 pm and I want to cancel...


I notice I can't because of the 3 orders that are tied to the membership.


They haven't charged the card so I am DOOMED to pay $12.99 for a service I know I will not be using just to get these lil funky discounted items.


But I know me.


If I cancel the membership and orders I will not repurchase at the regular price.


So now I'm legit panicking as I'm trying to figure out what to do with NO TIME left!


As I'm scrolling I see Medicaid/EBT and Students get half off membership so I rush to sign up.


That said, for the next 30 days, I will be using my Amazon Prime benefits and making purchases.


Or at least that's what I'm telling myself to justify spending $6.99.


Look at these student loans paying off lol.


I will keep you guys posted.
