Amazon extends the free trial offer for Amazon Prime challenging Netflix

See also

Amazon is continuing its attempt to take market share from Netflix in the highly competitive home entertainment arena. They have extended the period during which one can sign up for a free 30-day trail of Amazon Prime.

Amazon Prime is a membership program that offers much more than Netflix for a similar price. Prime members can instantly watch more than 40,000 movies and TV episodes which will stream on their PC, Mac or television. But remembering that Amazon’s core business is books there has to be a reading element, doesn’t there.

The answer is not just “yes” it is a “yes and be ready to knock your socks off”.

A great part of the program is the Kindle Owners' Lending Library. It offers e-books to anyone that has a Kindle or the free Kindle app for PCs, Macs or tablets. Prime members get one free rental per month.

Amazon Prime members get unlimited free two-day shipping on the millions of items sold directly by Amazon. This is on every order regardless of size. The only exception is some third-party items.

At the end of the trial you can keep Prime for just $79 per year.
