True that.

They've only gone downhill in their shipping anyway. Much more focused on how many different services they can bundle in, making Prime about quantity over quality.

I'd rather pay the full price to just have consistent, reliable, near-perfect 2-day shipping.

If SD does not break the link, I did find a cached page. It was likely not meant for the 'wild' or, it was peeked out there to see reaction.

I have reduced most of my shopping from Amazon. I have found the prices are same in Walmart. Since Amazon charges taxes for me, I went buying local. Besides, Walmart has free ship to store which happens to be the FedEx store near my office.

With min $50 shipping, that too for their slow like nail speed, I will stay away.

Because the movie selection is lacking. You still have to wait forever for any newer movies to be added. Relative did a trial over holidays snd the only thing that was worthwhile was being able to watch Stickman which was the UK's biggest tv hit over the holidays.

I use them all the time. 524 orders placed in 2015. I don't drive, and I am 15 miles from Walmart. Still in a no tax state for Amazon.

Amazon continually getting worse- the bottom will drop eventually when people get sick of their BS. Minimums increased, prime increased, order deliveries continually off, customer service has been terrible.
