Get a Free Month of Amazon Prime if a Delivery is Late

Amazon Prime members know about free two-day shipping. But did you know that if Amazon misses the delivery deadline it promises, you can get a free month?

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, one of the cool benefits is free two-day shipping. But if Amazon misses the deadline, it promises your package will arrive you are eligible for a free one-month extension of your annual Prime membership fee. And, if you’re not a Prime member, you can get your shipping costs automatically refunded.

Amazon Guaranteed Accelerated Delivery

According to Amazon’s Guaranteed Accelerated Delivery Fine Print:

If you received free shipping through Amazon Prime, you may be eligible for a free one-month extension when the promised delivery date isn’t met. Prime Extensions are limited to one per free trial and 12 for an annual membership. Free Amazon Student and Amazon Mom Prime Memberships do not qualify for this extension.

To get this deal, you will need to contact Amazon’s customer support and request the extra month. You’ll also need to verify it, which shouldn’t be an issue since the company has the same UPS or Fed Ex shipping information. Also, Prime members are eligible for one free month of Prime per year, so hopefully your delivery guy isn’t on time once in a while.

This is a hidden benefit of Amazon, and getting a free month of Prime is a definite advantage. In fact, take a look at these 10 benefits of Prime you’re not using.

I’ve personally never had a late delivery or needed to use this policy, but I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has. Just leave a comment below and tell us about your experience.

    I am a prime member. When ever Amazon uses Fed-Ex to ship my orders, my items are ALWAYS late. I track my packages & Fed-Ex ALWAYS claims there is no such address. I usually have to contact Fed-Ex to give them specific directions to my home.

    Amazon says this post is fraudulent by means of, they do not offer such a benefit. Why would Amazon tell me(a 14+ year customer) they have no idea what I’m talking about when I ask them about the information in this article…They say they do not under any circumstances offer free Amazon Prime service…
