Freebie: Amazon.Com Is Offering Amazon PRIME Free for 30 Days

Amazon.com is offering Amazon PRIME for a free 30-day trial, which can be a really, really good deal if you are a book-buyer. Before you scoff and point to your library, your Half-Price Books, or your garage sales, consider this:

  • unlimited two-day shipping
  • upgrade to one-day shipping for 3.99 (that's cheap!)
  • NO minimum order size
  • cancel before the end of the 30-day trial period, and you won't be charged for PRIME membership ($79/yr - not so cheap)
  • this includes products besides books, and there are some very good deals to be had in Amazon's new GoldBox New Deals.

Today, on the GoldBox New Deals page, I saw a brand new Scotts push-reel lawn mower for half-price ($99); a $200 Mother of Pearl butterfly pendant for $37.81; and a $59.98 cordless hammer drill by Denali for $14.38.

Maybe these aren't the best deals to be had, but I didn't surf around to try and beat them - and mark downs of 50-75% with free shipping and handling are worth checking out, right?
