PSA:. Amazon S&S terms have changed.

Amazon now states in each S&S order that price reflected could change versus what you see today when your order is processed. This now applied to the first S&S order, not just subsequent orders!

"The price of your subscription may change based on the price of the item(s) in your order at the time the order is processed.."

uhhhhhh, are you sure this isn't the same verbiage referring to future orders?

no way is anyone going to subscribe to something now and have it ship in 30 days and have it change to whatever it is at that time

This doesn't make sense. How can they change the price that you agreed to pay at the time of purchase?

i doubt OP is correct as this would cause a huge backlash against S&S

Actually I think it has always said something like that or words to that effect. Of course the price isn't going to change if you order something now and it ships in a week or two. I agree that the wording is confusing though.

If true then it seems risky to use S&S as sometimes I may have orders shipping 20 days later and if the price goes up and I have to pay more, it wouldn't be good.

Yeah this is dumb...why would anyone agree to save 5%-15% on a subscription if your items might go up in price and null those savings? Pretty sure OP is wrong.

Where do you see this? This is why you check your S&S prices before your last day to change your order. Did last S&S & saved about $5.

Add an item to s&s, then before you click place order, the new wording I mentioned is now there before you order. This was not there last month. On the app I can't add photo to show you.

Someone posted about this almost two months ago, but I haven't noticed any changes with how S&S works since then.

The first order is processed when you subscribe. So what you see is what you pay, they don't update prices on placed orders. All that wording is there for future orders and has nothing to do with the order you are about to place now.
