Today I bought some toothbrush heads. A modest purchase. I failed to notice when I selected ‘Standard Delivery’ the devious little buggers were offering this product as a ‘prime option’ which isn’t an option at all. By buying this product you are automatically enrolled for a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime which basically means on 3rd August they will charge my credit card with a £79 annual fee.
This is sneaky and underhand as I had no intention whatsoever of signing up to this ‘service’ and immediately went into my account and cancelled it. Except that I can’t actually cancel it until the 3rd August when it will ‘lapse’ unless I pay up.
Well, Amazon, it’s like this : I don’t want your bloody Prime service and I resent the lack of transparency you use to get people hooked into it with noticing.
I also have a screen print confirming I have immediately cancelled my ‘Prime subscription’ so I defy you to charge my credit card. You have NO authority to do so.
So fuck you, Amazon Prime…!
