Not strictly their fault I suppose, more the supplier.
I only ever use Amazon as a last resort. I ordered a duvet I couldn't find anywhere else which still hadn't been dispatched 5 days later. When is was finally on it's way, it didn't turn up when expected and Amazon sent an email to say it would be a few more days. It is now re-stocked elsewhere so I ordered another one yesterday and told Amazon to shove it! Saved some money at least as Amazon were the most expensive!
Not a real drama on the scale of things, just bliddy annoying!
Bluddy Amazon! I was in the garage this morning when Ruby jumped up on the workbench, tapped her empty box of Purina cat food and gave me a very hard stare! I'd forgotten to order it from Amazon so not wishing to upset her further I went to Amazon quick smart. I found the seller I use, went through the process as before, but they kept asking me if I wanted a free trial of Amazon Prime. No, no, no, Tick the box 'No' , tick, tick. I've just had an e-mail "Your Prime Free Trial Membership Confirmation" Sneaky divils!

I use Amazon a lot for crafty things and coffee pods etc so I am a Prime Member. They very rarely miss with the Prime next day delivery, even on Sundays. You can also talk to the supplier as in the other week when some ink arrived for my printer which I needed to finish my niece's birthday card ( usual, thought I had loads of all colours but blue missing) of course one of the blues arrived with the plastic lever thing that you need to click the cartridge into place broken. Normally I would return straight away but I wasn't going out to PC World on a Sunday paying a ridiculous price so I put in the other cartridge and emailed the supplier through Amazon and told them what had happened. Within the hour the supplier had replied telling me they would send out a replacement the next morning , which they did. Mr FP gets automatic free membership of Prime because of me. I like Amazon because I can send parcels to Mr and Mrs FP Major and inlaws hassle free too.
I got Amazon prime about a year ago as my daughter got me a Fire Stick for Xmas. It allows me to watch catch up TV and a variety of Amazon programmes...which I don't really bother with. But for quick delivery of orders or credit if I don't need fast delivery is useful. For me the best feature is all the free music I can access and download onto my IPod. There is no limit, except my memory capacity on the IPod. I think there may be extra storage for photos...maybe?
I got a Roku thingy for Christmas which means I've got access to various new things and haven't had to get Amazon Prime. I don't order enough to warrant it anyway.
I'd be miffed if they decided to ignore my "no, I don't want Prime" because I'd probably forget to cancel it when the free trial was over. That happened to my friend and she got charged £70ish for the privilege of having a year's Prime membership when she didn't actually want it.
Since the £100 gift cards fiasco I experienced recently I've found out a lot more about some iffy things going on at Amazon, thanks to the Amazon forum, and others have also complained about getting the free trial when they haven't clicked on "yes."
