That's a temporary NFCU Flagship benefit as I understand it.

I don't.
I once had a free trial I got because it offered free 2-day shipping or something like that on something I was ordering. When the free trial was up and they wanted me to pay, and I hadn't ordered anything else from Amazon during that 6 months, I cancelled it.

I wish I had that problem. 

300 orders last year.

I don't either.. Mainly because I like to see / hold what I am buying first -- I'm sort of a design quality snob and do like to patronize local merchants as much as possible. Also, I much prefer returning/swapping things in person over volleying of [cross]shipping etc.

..and, none of the amazon prime core benefits appeal to me or are redundant of services I have elsewhere.

Re: Who doesn't have Amazon Prime?

I'm currently on the third month of a free trial, but I didn't have it before that and won't have it after.  I'm not a super big fan of Amazon as a company and I prefer to buy my books at local bookstores.

Re: Who doesn't have Amazon Prime?

I will probably cancel this year. It was worth it until they started adding additional charges to everything.

I don't.

 

Started using Amazon casually back in the 90's when it was still just an online Hastings/B&N. When Prime first came out, they marketed it pretty hard with lots of free trials (and they still seem to be trying to force a free 30-day on me). Never saw the value in it for my needs, though, so I've never had it.

 

When they bought out WF a few years back, I saw it as a move to try to coerce people like me to get it. My suspicion was that they'd only offer sales prices to Prime members (unlike other grocery stores, where sale price is same for members/non-members around here). Imagine my shock when they did exactly that.
