Ah, the perks of Amazon Prime.
We love free two-day shipping, free same-day shipping, free movies, free music and even free photo storage (for when your phone wonât stop letting you know your storage is full).
Yes, those are some solid benefits, but it will cost ya â about $119 a year.
Wanna know our secret, though?
You can get compensation, in some cases a free month of Amazon Prime, if one of your guaranteed shipments arrives late.

You mightâve heard of Paribus.
The free tool tracks your online purchases from more than 25 merchants. When it detects a price drop, itâll work with the retailerâs price-match policy to help get you the difference. When it detects an Amazon guaranteed shipment is late? Itâll work with Amazon to compensate you.
But what if you got free shipping as a Prime member? Weâve spoken with several shoppers whoâve gotten a free month of Prime as compensation.
Hereâs how to make sure you get compensated for late shipments:
- Sign up with Paribus. All you need is your email address.
- Let Paribus do its thing, passively tracking your orders.
- If it detects a late guaranteed shipment, itâll work with Amazon to get you compensated.
Happy free shipping, Amazon Prime members!
