Separate Amazon/Prime forum?

35 22 July 11, 2017 at 02:59 AM
Y'all think you could create a separate forum for the Amazon and Prime threads? I'm kind of tired of seeing the Hot Deals forum spammed with their junk. The company is already stealing so much business from local stores that many are closing and putting people out of work. Do we need to help them steal business from other websites also? How about helping to give the other guys a chance?

You can use the filtering options on the top left of the page. Select Amazon under stores and select exclude.

Funny... those same local businesses don't offer same day or even next day delivery. Not even for a fee let alone free like Amazon does in some cases. They can't even deliver in 2 days. Amazon does.

I'm happy to support the little guy but they have to compete with the big guys if they want to stay in business. Not offering delivery at all is what screws most of them over. Why do I need to go to a store?

I can hop on Amazon, order something quickly and easily and it shows up at most a couple of days later. When the local guy does that I will be more than happy to support them. If they want to run their business like it is still the 90s then they will suffer. Things have changed.

I like seeing the Amazon topics. If you don't want to see Amazon you can filter them out as SP33DFR34K mentioned.
