Signed up with Amazon this morning, February 28, 2018. I thought I'd go simple to see how they worked.
Tried to buy a 24.5 oz. canister of coffee. There was no "Buy" icon, no way to get it into the cart. Called Customer Service and was told that I would have to pay $99.00/year in order to buy anything from Amazon.
I said that that was a "Bait and Switch" technique and that Amazon was fraudulently getting customers to pay this exorbitant amount just to buy a $6.38 canister of coffee. Stay away from Amazon.
Also, watch out for Walmart.com. They have "computer errors" that add someone else's purchases to your credit card or bank card. They also will have an item for sale, you purchase it, not 2 minutes after you purchase it, you will have an email saying that the order was cancelled.
No reason- just cancellation of said item. Now, they are saying it was a "security problem or computer error" and to try again. This is the second time this has happened with Walmart.com. If you can, go to stores and buy what you need.
Neither one of these two companies are worth the effort to shop with online. But, the "Bait and Switch" at Amazon is just jaw dropping fraud.
