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.
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.
