Vlad_the_Inaner: WOOT Free Shipping![i.imgur.com image 640x228]except you can buy the same jar at Sam's Wholesale Club for like $8.
Lsherm: Lsherm: The last example of this I can think of was an accent lamp I ordered that was $102 on Amazon Prime.In case anyone asks:[img819.imageshack.us image 359x900]It really ties the room together. Like a rug, but taller.
MutantMotherMouse: Warchild: bdub77: Somewhere out there a class action lawyer's dick is getting really hard.Or vagina. It could be a lawyer's vagina getting whatever a vagina gets when it's hard. Umm.I believe the term is "ladyboner".or moist
unlikely: Prime is worth it to me for the streaming alone.The shipping... well... it might vary from object to object but I find that the prime stuff is rarely more expensive than not, and in the few cases where it is, the price difference is still substantially less than 2 day shipping.
Russ1642: Shipping is never 'free'. It's just already included in the asking price. It has ALWAYS been this way.
Carth: Amazon prime offers free two day shipping, not standard. The price comparison she was doing includes standard shipping which is and inferior service to what is included with Prime.
Confabulat: Most things I buy on Amazon are still cheaper than at the Walgreens down the road, and I don't have to lug it up the stairs. I buy everything but food there, stuff like 40 lbs of cat litter make Prime worth it pretty quickly. And they have movies too.
fozziewazzi: Russ1642: Shipping is never 'free'. It's just already included in the asking price. It has ALWAYS been this way.That's true, but the lawsuit contends that Amazon is selling Prime as a service that includes free shipping. Now everyone knows that's bogus - the cost is just baked into the price. Amazon can get away with this because you can't get the item for cheaper at Amazon, plus shipping.But Amazon is explicitly telling vendors to bake in their shipping costs to make their items prime eligible. That's a problem because it directly contradicts how Amazon is selling Prime, regardless of the fact that everyone knows how the game works.
milowitz: .edu email gets you half price Prime so suck it. A lot of the Prime stuff I buy is the SAME price as other sites/brick and mortar and I get free shipping. I just ordered a 'big sister' book and vinyl repair kit last night and I'll see them Friday. Totally worth not driving.
StoPPeRmobile: Vlad_the_Inaner: WOOT Free Shipping![i.imgur.com image 640x228]except you can buy the same jar at Sam's Wholesale Club for like $8.What's the cost of their membership fee now?
PC LOAD LETTER: Free is free, it's just not 2-day. They subcontract it to Lasership and other 3rd party vendors who fark it up majorly. I had to take a morning off from work to get the package from Lasership's warehouse myself after waiting a week. FAIL.
Lsherm: It really ties the room together.
NickelP: this may be one of the few class action lawsuits I would get a notice for and opt out, not because I want to pursue it on my own but because I like the service the defendant has given me.
clyph: Lsherm: It really ties the room together.Your man card. Turn it in.
ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: Confabulat: This giant glass computer desk I'm typing on now required three people to bring it upstairs to my apartment.Shipping on that alone would have been more than my Prime membership.I got two 25 pound weights and a weight bar shipped for free with Prime.
