What if you are not willing to pay $119 annually but still want to enjoy some of the benefits on Amazon Prime? There are some options for you. You can go with a monthly plan of $12.99. Well, if you pay $12.99 for 12 months, it would cost $155.88 in total, which is more than 20% of your annual subscription. But if you want to use Amazon Prime only at a specific period of the year, i.e. during the offer period, you can save a lot.
If it’s your first time to use Prime, you can simply sign up for free trial for 30 days to figure out if it is best for you. After using it for 12 months, you can get another free trial for 30 days.

How would I know when My Prime membership is expiring?
Simply go to your “Amazon account” and check how long you can use your free trial. Log in to your Amazon account and it will greet you with a message on the top right side. Open the drop-down and choose “Your Account” from other options. Now go to Prime option.
On the next page, you can see the number of days you have used your Amazon Prime membership and the date of expiry of your free trial and when you will be charged for next month or year.
