This isn’t strictly credit card-related, but it’s a pretty good deal that I though was worth mentioning. Amazon.com is currently offering a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime. If you’re not familiar with Amazon Prime, it’s their shipping program that provides you with free two-day delivery of just about anything that would otherwise qualify for their Super Saver shipping, but with no minimum purchase amount, as well as dirt cheap ($3.99) overnight shipping.
Yes, you can get most of this stuff shipped to you for free if: (1) you’re patient, and (2) willing to group your purchases together to exceed the $25 minimum for Super Saver shipping. That being said, we’ve been members of Amazon Prime for over a year now, and I can honestly say that it’s been well worth it to us in terms of convenience and time saved. This has been especially true as gas prices have moved higher and we’ve shifted more and more of our purchases online.
Just a quick word of caution… The membership auto-renews into the annual (paid) version at the end of the month, so be sure to go in and tell them that you want to cancel if you decide you don’t want to keep it.
