If you’re a Prime member we have a great no-risk offer we’re rolling out today to celebrate signing up our 33,000th member – which happened just a few minutes ago. If you’re already a Prime member we’ll let you try out two weeks of Prime AF (Ad Free) for no cost and zero obligation. Simple as that.

Just click here.

Upgrading to Prime AF is also a great way to support TPM, as I describe below. So even if you’re not sure it’s for you it would mean so much to us if you’d give this free trial a try.

If you decide to try it out, you’ll immediately switch to zero ads of any sort for the next two weeks. All you have to do is push one button at this link. If you decide you like it, at end of two weeks your account will upgrade to Prime AF. If you decide it’s not for you you simply turn off the trial any time during the two weeks and that’s that. No charge. No nothing.

Prime AF is simply awesome. I don’t know anyone who’s upgraded to AF who wasn’t glad they did. Zero ads is a much cleaner reading experience and having zero ads allows us to strip out a lot of the scripts and gunk. That makes the site faster. But upgrading to AF also pushes us further from dependence on advertising revenue which especially now in the COVID economy is an almost existential threat to our organization. The less reliance we have on the vicissitudes of the advertising market the better. So upgrading to Prime AF is a great way to support TPM in addition to getting yourself a dramatically better reading and viewing experience.

Are you ready? Just click here and you’ll be brought to a page with more detail and a single button to start the trial. Like I said, if you decide it’s not for you just turn off the trial and that’s that.
