Amazon Prime goes Monthly

Locked

Amazon now has a monthly prime option of $10.99 a month.

Their yearly option is still $99 a year and that is a savings of over $32 a year, fyi.

Get 3-4 months free paying yearly. I prefer Netflix on streaming. But my walmart takes 4-6 months to restock key things so I get money worth on free 2 day shiping as buy 96 cans of cat food 3-4 times a month. Last 3 weeks gone they had no cans of Coke had get coke Vanilla but they got tons of pepsi. I get coke in glass bottles so few buy it all stores got tons of that. Not many pay $1 per 8 oz for it not have taste of aluminum. Plastic bottles go bad in few weeks so I pay to dollar get good stuff. rest family gets cans they not as set in ways as me. My great grandparants be proud of me they only got it & dr pepper in glass bottles too.

Yes Netflix is still the best. I do the streaming with 1 dvd out at a time.

Amazon Prime (yearly) is a good deal for me because I do shop there
a lot. I buy Bo's dry dog food at Amazon. He eats the 'Blue' brand for
small breed that is grain free, artificial free, color free. He is spoiled.

Also I am a member of discount sites. Today for for example I purchased
several items that if I had paid full cost, it would have been way over $100.
Plus I have to order those discounted items, one at a time and if I wasn't
prime, I'd have to pay shipping individually on most of those items. As
a prime member, my total cost was $3. So in essence, in just one day my
yearly prime pays for itself.

I agree the glass pop bottles are always the best. I rarely see them and
never buy them. I buy the cans and the plastic bottles and also at times
the big plastic jugs.

I can remember many many many years ago, placing a coke bottle in
the freezer and forgetting about it.....what a mess! Broken glass!

I wish they would let you pay for Amazon Prime with Amazon Gift Cards.

Yes I think that stinks too that they don't. They want you to have a credit card in
there so that it will auto renew every year....and now OR every month.

Well they did this for poor which have no bank account (and if that poor no credit card too). If added it people could find $10 of change use coinstar & pay no fee get gift code. Bet they sell more of them too. They could do like straittalk prepay for future months too. So that way only need fund it every 2-3 months using $25 giftcard.

Then could get prime use for sharing with no credit card attached which why I do not share my account with any one. They sell multiple ones in household one for primary and another for all others just watch streaming. And get all people who hate debit or credit cards.

They did it because they make more money and they make more money by
denying gift codes for the prime membership.

If you have gift codes you spend them for buying products.

If they were to allow prime membership with gift codes, less sales of products.
However, mostly it is all about the auto-renew. If you have auto-renew and you
forget about it after a year or now after a month, you are in fact automatically
charged again simply because you forgot to go in and cancel your prime membership.

It has nothing to do with poor. The monthly option is simply going to generate
more money for them in more ways than one. Amazon will make about $33.00
more per year from their monthly members. In addition, it will generate more
product sales.

It's all about making more money and becoming the number one shopping
option in the world.

Article said added it for poor as they reached all rich already. Was on Yahoo so take with grain of salt.

Well that doesn't even make sense. If you're poor, you don't have money to shop
at amazon let alone, pay a monthly fee.
