How to get an extra year of Amazon Prime for $79

Did you hear that Amazon is raising the price of Prime membership by $20 per year? There's a sneaky way to snag one more year at the current price. Here's what you have to do:

1. Find out the exact date your current subscription expires.

2. Turn off the automatic renewal on your Amazon Prime account.

3. Buy a gift subscription of Amazon Prime at the current rate of $79 per year.

4. Set the gift subscription to deliver itself to your email address the day after your current subscription expires.

It's okay to use the email address that's already associated with your current Prime membership to buy this gift subscription. Overall it's a simple way to save $20 on a service you may have already been planning to renew anyway.
