What a dirty company Amazon is for ticking me to spend $99 a year. I'm not spending $10.99 a month just to get 2 day shipping. What a bunch of jerks. I know they didn't say up front that I would be charged that much. They tricked me, those assholes! angry

Next time, here's a tip, you can use amazon prime for free...

The better option is to place an order using and upgrade to prime with an OLD CREDIT CARD.

Then, change the order on the item to a current credit card.

Free shipping via Amazon prime at $0.

Prime is a great deal.

Especially when combined with the savings offered by Amazon. Also, thank God for Amazon just for having some products available for purchase.

It's the Costco scam.
You never make back the money in savings unless you do all your shopping there.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 54771142


Year after year, I get more back on my rebate check than the Executive membership costs. If one just buy thier milk, eggs, butter and coffee from Costco, the savings on those items more than covers a membership.

Also the prices provided for car rentals through Costco are unbeatable.

BTW...used Costco to purchase 3 cars, OUTSTANDING.

60 X 10 (nominal shipping cost) per month = 600.00 per month

Nope....I run a fabrication business and I can order most everything from Amazon.....switches, valves, tools, electronic sub assemblies, paints/industrial coatings, mold making material,etc....

since I'm by a hub, if I place my order by 9pm I can often get the part the next day....faster than my normal vendors that have to place a special order taking a week or more...

Amazon is Waaaaay more than consumer goods...

yeah, and actually got in on sale for $79. which is why work agreed to pay for it.
still a scam in my mind, 2 day delivery is the major advantage and it takes 4-6 days to get anything..

again wanting to state that south florida mail is probably the worst in the whole country and that may be my issue, not prime.

im out. y'all have a safe weekend!

You idiots don't know how to use PRIME. And BTW: it IS usually 2 days shipping, with deliveries on Sunday included free. In many cases I've gotten OVERNIGHT delivery at extra charge!

Beyond that, there tens of thousands of movies/TV shows you can also watch free. And if you want music? Well....

All it takes is a couple of orders for heavy items [where shipping alone would normally be $40-50] for PRIME to pay for itself.

This ^^

My schedule is way to busy to have time to go shopping for most items so I order about 10-15 times per month.

98% of the time delivery is free-2 days regardless of the item's weight. Light items from a nearby wearhouse are same day and free. The prime-air delivery (via drone-same day) should be coming to my area soon.


The movie library and music library are a nice perk as well. Also being able to check out books on my Kindle (and not having to buy them) is a money saver.

I'm happy with my membership.

I agree. Why pay $55.00 a year just to shop there. I shop for my food at Vons. Using the Vons club card and their "just for you" program I accumulate gas points. Twice a month I fill my gas tank with gas at Vons saving one dollar a gallon for two tanks or $30.00 a month.

Re: I got tricked into spending $99 a year for Amazon Prime:(
I purchased over 100 items on Amazon in 2016. But, I always check to see if they have the best price. I found a $700 camera for my son which was the same price on Amazon as B&H photo. But, B&H sent it tax free, so I saved $48. They also gave me free 2 day shipping).

I stream a few movies during the year and listen to the music which is free. So, for about $8. a month and the convenience and gas savings of not going to a brick and mortar store, it is just fine.

Also, if you don't get it when promised, you call customer service and tell them you want consideration for the item not being delivered as promised. In the past they have given me a free month extension and also dollar amounts depending on the item. I believe the most was $20. The thing to do if you contact customer service is to immediately ask for a US based representative so you don't have to explain yourself a half dozen times.
