They make you wait many weeks to get your credits now when you purchase promotional items, You cant review/rate Amazon anymore after purchase, you cant choose your shipper, your cant choose shipping time, PRIME is nothing but econo shipping, ....Becoming a time consuming rip off!
I'm a prime member and have had no issues. Not sure what the issue is though yes it is essentially econonmy fast shipping. I almost never pay for next day but take the 2 day that prime comes with and it almost always shows up next day. I love it. I'd let amazon know, the one time I ever had an issue (preordered a book 6 months early, then moved and never changed shipping address...totally my fault) they responded super fast (sent me another copy next day for no charge) and beyond my expectations, they may do the same for you.
I've been a faithful Amazon customer since 2001 and have always been pleased by their service. These issues hardly seem legitimate. Perhaps the only and most glaring issue I've had with them is not being able to set my own shipping cost when I sell something, and losing my ass when the shipping costs are more than the Amazon estimate (which they always are).
And yes, Amazon Prime is only good if you buy EVERYTHING from Amazon and have a lot of disposable income. Really, for a yearly fee, you'd think they'd come up with a better incentive than just faster shipping! I'm satisfied using Super Saver Shipping on my orders. Sure I get them later, but it's no big deal, really.
Not true to the original poster. I Recently purchased a Nintendo Wii and a Wii game and i was told I'd get a 30 and 10 dollar credit (40 dollars even) towards my next video game purchase on Amazon.com, Soon as my items shipped, I got the credit and was able to purchase Super Mario Galaxy 2. I Think it just depends on what your luck is, unfortunately. and yes 75 dollars a year for Prime is a little too much, but if you catch them at the right time sometimes, you can get a month free and get your stuff over nighted (or 1 day shipping) for like 2 dollars, and then cancel before your membership is up. :)
