Thread Details

Guys, sorry if this has been posted or been aware of. This is not a deal, but just for ya info.

I was surprised to learn today that canceling my amazon prime membership won't give me any refund (not even a single dollar) if I have placed any (or just one) order using my prime membership benefit. My previous understanding was it would be a proactive refund. Amazon!

Here is the link to the Amazon Prime Terms & Conditions (under the Membership Cancellation section).

Now, I will have to keep ordering more every single day to make the full use of my membership LMAO

what are you trying to say? who will expect a proactive refund for a one year old computer or in other words- how can you compare amazon prime and computer? Amazon prime is a service but computer is a purchase!

i guess if u put it that way that could make sense, but i guess logically speaking u dont expect that out of prime because whats to stop people from ordering prime during holiday season and cancel it, im sure many would do that.

Thanks for replying. You are right about the prime cancellation after the holidays!

Anyway,sorry OP - that's how amazon works - make sure not to order too much to utilize the prime and also not to waste your money on some unnecessary things. That is the main reason I did't extend my prime this year!

I technically got my prime renewed this yr for free. Originally they charged my Prime membership on the wrong card and the first CSR I talked to assured me that it was charged onto the right one. A month goes by and I get my statement, only to realize that they did in fact still charged it on the wrong card. I called up Amazon and the 2nd CSR I spoke with apologized for the inconvienence and offered to refund my card and stated that she would just keep my Prime membership active.

Next thing I know, I log onto Amazon to see that my Prime membership got canceled. So I called them up a THIRD time and this time, the CSR explained that there was no way for them to refund the Prime membership AND keep my membership active. And that the 2nd CSR was wrong for promising something that she had no way of delivering. So instead they gave me a promo credit on my account for future purchases in the amount of the renewal fee and recharged my card.

Long story short, my Prime membership is technically free this yr Big Grin

Well, I just renewed my prime membership this mid-February. I have placed about 16 orders so far, amounted for about 3-5% of the total orders I usually placed in a year. I wanted to cancel it because I will be abroad till end of the year. Anyway, maybe I was confused that I received a partial refund 4 years ago.
