Just got my third free trial of Amazon Prime, and I learned that when you pre-order items that come out after your free trial is over (that you don’t renew and don’t pay for), you still get free two-day shipping on all those future items.

So I pre-ordered the new Yoko Ono and Paul McCarntey CD’s, and the new BBC volume and Lewisohn biography.  All but one of these will actually arrive on release date.

Then I chatted to customer service to let them know I didn’t get my last 8 dollars of mp3 promotional credits, and they gave me a free 24 dollar gift certificate, which I used to purchase You Never Give Me Your Money and a “With The Beatles ” coffee mug.

Hmm – free shipping would be nice down here – always costs a bomb when I buy stuff.

Just ordered the Help and Mystery Tour blu rays from the UK to get the correct region coding, even with shipping they will work out way cheaper than retail here, so Amazon can be great at times.  I try to get some stuff at local stores still though to encourage them to stock physical CDs – I hate waiting days / weeks for the mail.

We get free shipping anyway in the UK (on most products), they just take a while to arrive. We used to have Prime which promised next day delivery (the UK’s a lot smaller than the US, so that’s probably how they could do that), but over the course of the year it got worse and we’d often get stuff sent via normal Royal Mail first class.

My Amazon credit card, on the other hand, is great. I buy all my shopping with it (and pay it off in full automatically every month), and every few weeks I get a £10 Amazon voucher. Since I spend so much on there anyway it’s good to get some free stuff.
