I signed up for Amazon Prime about 3 years ago and enjoyed much of their TV programming, and getting the majority of my Amazon orders via Prime, for free in 1 or 2 days. Since the first year at a cost of $99/annually the product has gone up in price over 50%.
Allegedly it was rising from $99/year to $119/year. Still doable until now they bill monthly. They need help in math as $12.49 (I believe) a month equals $149.88!! IT AIN'T WORTH IT!!
Programming quality has gone down fast and fewer and fewer products qualify for PRIME shipping in 1 -2 days. Far fewer items ship in that time frame and fewer still ship for free. Now they have all kinds of "fly by night" companies that not only offer low quality/overpriced products but no free returns. I didn't even realize as I was returning 3 items that were not AS ADVERTISED ON AMAZON.COM that one that cost $9.50 cost me almost $10 to return and I still haven't seen a refund after close to 10 days.
I have Netflix, HULU, Roku and a couple of other paid movie/TV providers I don't need Amazon anymore.
DO THE MATH FOLKS.... AMAZON HAS BECOME A MAJOR RIPOFF!!
