Yep billy, I totally agree with you, I have just logged into my Amazon account and cancelled my week Free Trial of Prime, although they seemed to have charged me 99p for the Free trial, but soften that by telling me that I am due a 50p refund as I did not use all the Prime services.
Of course the other joke is that finding how to actually cancel your Prime Free Trial, is also a faff, I guess they are hoping that you give up, so that they can start charging you the £7.99 per month.
I wonder how many millions of people like me have been stiffed for 49p.
Itís all complete bonkers, and I will be avoiding Amazon at all costs, unless itís an item I am struggling to find elsewhere.
I've hesitated over replying, because I didn't want to spoil the narrative of an interesting thread, but I can't help but ask why you accept the offer of a free trial of Prime in the first place?
I'm an infrequent user of Amazon, maybe 5 orders a year, for some years and I have never accepted the Prime trial offer, for example my last, recent order went like this:
I have three items total value over £20 in my basket 'fulfilled by Amazon' and eligible for free delivery and one item value £2.99 with free delivery from an 'Amazon seller'.
Click proceed to checkout. Up pops the 'we're giving you a free trial......' On this page is a tick box with the words 'Proceed without offers' Click.. Checkout page opens.. Delivery address, Click.. Payment options, Click... On the right-hand side of the page delivery options are
listed, Free Prime delivery is pre selected. Choose option Free standard delivery, Click....
Lean back in your chair and bask in the glory that comes when you frustrate the dastardly plans of our (we the people) Corporate Overlords....
Sorry. Don't know what happened there, I got quite carried away!
Never argue with fools........They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
