I just saw this news this morning. Since I'm one of the 12 people in the world who don't have Prime, I was going to quick subscribe at the $99 price but those sneaky buttholes didn't give me the option to subscribe and rather gave me another free 30 day trial, meaning it'll be $120 when the trial is over.

Wow. That is sneaky of them. Just find someone to split it with.

I can't believe you were going to join!

I bet if you chat them you could bypass the trial? But $20 extra is still worth it. I got an Amazon package every day this week and didn't pay any shipping.

I don't buy a lot of stuff from amazon but free shipping is always nice. My biggest saving is from the one free twitch subscription a month. At $5 a month, I'm saving $60 a year.

You sub to individual streamers at $5/month per stream. Prime gives you a free sub/month

A serious answer 3vil_aura or Megamagwitch. 3vil_aura has a beautiful pitbull named Layla who is often on stream with him. Megamagwitch is just a charismatic jackass who I often talk tv/movies/video games with.

So do I just buy like 50 of them and never run out? (assume I'll be dead in 50 years)

If you also link your Amazon account with Twitch, you can also get five-ish free games a month. https://slickdeals.net/f/11510943-twitc ... BarV2Algo1
