How so? Your statement isn't particularly compelling without some sort of details on why you think this.

Have you read all about it? Try here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/prime/ref=footer_prime

Prime is a program I've used for years to get free 2-day shipping. I've never been charged for shipping. How is that fraud?

Victoria says:
Will you elaborate, please? Just what did Amazon promise that they've not delivered with respect to Prime? I think it does everything that they say, but of course I did read the information fully before I bought it. Please tell us what makes you say it's a "bit of a fraud".

I'm with the others. Please explain how it is a fraud and we can discuss it.

Fraud? That would require intentional deceit. I have had prime for years and every purchase I make tells me if it is prime eligible. The benefits I have gotten through prime are exactly as advertised and they have added to the service with new benefits quite frequently.

If you are going to make ridiculous statements you could at least elaborate a bit.

So everything is evenly divisible then?

Methinks the OP defines "fraud" as "not going to give me all the free stuff I want for $79/year".

Who wants to bet Robert thought Prime was $79/year for one book rental per month and that he didn't bother to read about the other benefits before making his highly insightful and compelling comment?

My bet is that Mr. Robert won't be back to explain why he thinks this is a fraud.

Yes, I am itching to know exactly what is fraudulent. I have saved far more than $100/yr for shipping, not to mention the other little perks.

Posters like this never come back. Don't waste your time.

But it's so fun to speculate on their speculations, R. D.! ;-)

Yes, the 'hit and run' troll poster. I'm not sure why they bother...

The OP gave a stylus 2 stars because it didn't come with instructions... yes.. a stylus. So, yea, I'm not expecting anything relating to reality if he ever bothers to try and tell anyone what he meant by "fraud".

Hahaha! Oh boy.

Hey, this new screwdriver I bought didn't come with documentation. I don't know which way to turn it. It's fraud I tell you! Fraud!

He has four reviews, and uses the word "fraud" in two of them. The other two are equally pointless rants with little actual information. I'm sensing a pattern here...

That's a great review - the box doesn't come with anything saying what the device is for? Really? You just randomly got this thing in the mail?

LOL! Maybe I should go into business writing a stylus instruction manual. That's just too funny.

He probably bought a bunch of those "free to Prime members" books only to discover they weren't free. Because he didn't read the instructions.

Hahaha! My screwdriver goes both ways; I guess you got the cheap model.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 9, 2012 10:54:16 AM PST
Wow your screwdriver is bisexual? *giggle*

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 9, 2012 10:56:36 AM PST
Yes, yours isn't?

Thanks for the heads up on the review, I read it and am...um...impressed.... wow.

How is the 2 day shipping a fraud?

Why would you dredge up an almost year-old thread to greedily whine because you can't get something for free?

Prime, the shipping program, is not a "joke." The *paying* member, as well as up to 3 other members in the household, gets 2-day shipping on everything he/she orders that's sold by Amazon. The paying member, additionally, gets access to stream videos and to read one book per month for free.

You are acting in a greedy manner to expect Amazon to give the non-paying members who get free Prime shipping already MORE stuff for free, when the fee is only $79 per year.
