Bye Bye Amazon
Or, as Gollum might say, "bye bye nasty, tricksy Amazon".
I'm sure Amazon Prime is a good thing for some folk, but not for me. The service has nothing I want and is of no interest to me.
So I'm really
not liking the way Amazon Prime is thrust in my face at every turn on the Amazon site, and I have to be extra careful if I buy something, NOT to press any large inviting buttons to continue to the next stage of the purchase cycle, and instead look for the small-print links that take me on WITHOUT, in a single click, committing myself to paying £79 automatically at the end of a 30-day free trial (they already have your card details, remember!).
The chances are, if I was a little tired, drunk, or just not concentrating, I probably wouldn't realise I had just signed away £79.
And if I did
realise I had stupidly been lured into the trap, (as I have, once) I'd then have to go through all the rigmarole of emptying the shopping basket, finding the right part of account management to quit Amazon Prime ("Are you sure you want to leave Amazon Prime?" YEEESSS! "You wouldn't like to continue enjoying the benefits and then have us remind you 3 days before your free membership ends? NOOOOO!), and starting over.
So I'm going to look elsewhere for books, electricals, devices & accessories, where I can browse & purchase without having to tiptoe through a minefield. #Amazon #amazonprime
