Here's a little-known fact about Amazon's Prime membership: The company guarantees your package will be delivered at the promised time. If it's not, Prime members can get a one-month extension of their membership.

As Redditor jeffnnc points out, with the holidays here, chances are greater that the estimated delivery dates will be missed. You have to contact customer support to get the extension, and you can get the extension twelve times in a year.

Those who aren't Prime members can get the shipping costs refunded by contacting Amazon as well.P

Good to know, thanks!

One I've done before is getting refund of overnight shipping fee.  If you pay extra for overnight shipping and it's late, contact customer service and they'll refund it.

They've changed the terms of the Prime subscription extension, if your Prime order is late.

It was (for yearly subscribers), up to 12 1-month extensions, every year.  So, say you last paid on October 1st of 2014, you could get 12 extensions between October 1st, 2014 and September 30th, 2015. Then, come October 1st, 2015, you could get 12 more extensions up through September 30th of 2016.  Enough late shipments and you never pay for Prime again.

Now (again for yearly subscribers), it's up to 12 1-month extensions every subscription payment.  So, if you last paid in October 1st of 2016, you can get 12 extensions between then and September 30th of 2017, but come October 1st of 2018 you have to pay again. And, any late orders from October 1st of 2017 and September 30th of 2018 will not qualify for an extension.   However, you can usually get a $5-$10 credit because of the late shipment.

This change explains why I have been unable to get any more free months of Prime added to my account even though my year anniversary was last September.  The last time I actually paid for Prime was back in 2014.  Some condemn me for hitting them up for the free extensions and credits, but what part of Guaranteed 2-day Shipping means not really guaranteed?
