Heads up: If you signed up for the $73 Amazon Prime special they had last month you should check your account.

Thread Details

Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but I wanted to give you guys the heads up, since I almost overlooked it.

I was just charged full price ON MONDAY for it because they didn't cancel the trial before signing up. Which I did not know I had to do.

So just a heads up.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I THINK he might be saying he signed up for the trial and then later purchased the $73 deal but they ever canceled the trial after the official purchase....Maybe. It's a pretty vague post.

Not that I don't agree with you on some level, but I think it is kind of bad programming on Amazons part to not automatically move a person from trial to subscription if they pay. It seems kind of surprising they wouldn't automatically make this move and under 'normal' full price circumstances they would be effectively cutting off some length of time the user has Prime (as opposed to a user having one full month plus one full year).

At the same time, were this me, I'd have over-analyzed it seeing I wasn't charged and it would have raised some alarms.

This isn't a hot deal though, and I don't think it is appropriate to post it as such.

uh, just cancel it then and get a full refund?

amazon's site glitches from time to time and offers me a free trial of prime even though i've already had a free trial before... multiple times.

it did this again the other day when that tronsmart 5 port charger went on sale, so i was like okay, sure why not, free 2 day shipping..

checked my acct yesterday and they had charged me the full $100+tax for prime even though it said 30 day free trial, so i cancelled it and got a full refund.

Had similar programming experience with xbox live. I was offered 1 month for $0 on a Silver account. About an hour after I signed up, the system probably realized I was not supposed to get that offer so the live benefits stopped working. My account showed I am Gold but every gold item was at full price. Couple of days later I entered a live code and was really Gold again.

However, on my account I had 2 subscription, a trial and a regular 3 month with different expiration dates. And I had to cancel the trial manually because I was going to get charged $60 if I did not.

If he was on trial for PRIME and purchased the $73 year for PRIME, why the hell would he need to cancel the trial??? Greed has nothing to do with it. Amazon's bad system would be to blame for that...Now if he went passed the 30 days and then he purchased the $73 Prime, then he is at fault.

Have them call you. They should straiten it out. Otherwise, call you Credit Card and say they billed you twice.

Whenever a corporation screws over a little guy, the greed involved is that of the corporation.

For those of you offering him suggestions, you realize he wasn't complaining but instead giving a PSA for those of us like him who may not watch our credit cards down to the nickel.
