As the article title states, this refers to the monthly fees. If one pays the yearly fee, it remains at $99.00.

Maybe this is to cover the cost of portable urinals, so their delivery drivers don't have to pee on the customers front lawn.

Substitute USPS carrier delivered an Amazon book and left it at the front door and it was stolen. A few days I opened the door to check out the ice and found a second package sitting there---I had no notification from USPS that it was there.
The permanent carrier returned yesterday after a bout of pneumonia and said other people also had packages left at their door which were then stolen.
Amazon sent me a replacement via UPS with driver knocking on my door so I got it.

Neither rain nor sleet nor snow will stop the US mail----just laziness.

Their delivery drivers leave it at my door (to my knowledge they never bother to knock on the door or ring the door bell) but thus far nothings been stolen. In the future though I think I'm gonna leave them a gift package when I know they're coming. Poor sods, worked to death and no place to pee.

Mileage obviously varies, but I've had much better-- and far less infuriating--service from the USPS than I have with UPS and FedEx.

Prime can be super handy, and not just for fast score CDs smile.

Some of the items boasting two day shipping...I'm not sure when Amazon thought shipping something parcel select would mean it arrives "guaranteed in two days", but they're going to have to go back to expedited. The last few things I ordered with that proviso showed up three business days late.

USPS regular shipping usually arrive in two days so why change?

I was being sarcastic. I have no news. I only suspect once they con everyone into a yearly membership the price will go up. Maybe in six months, maybe a year. Snork has a master plan.

I know I've been slagging Amazon off for a long while now, but lately there deals were to good to resist so I rejoined as a prime member, I've had scores, rock, jazz for as little as 50 pence free shipping.

If anyone is interested & is a prime member there's a Morricone score for £2.97 brand new, its called, Il Ladrone, GDM 500, I have the score already so someone go pinch a bargain.

Serious question. How do you "buy" Amazon original series? Do you have to be a Prime member? Apple TV now comes with an Amazon Prime App so I can watch Amazon series on my device of choice.

When you purchase a series is it like iTunes where you can view your purchases in perp? If you have to pay a yearly fee for Amazon Prime and let it slip dose that mean you can't watch what you purchased anymore? With iTunes theres no monthly or yearly membership fee required.

Anything that you purchase on Amazon (i.e. you pay a price point dedicated to that item) will be available whether you are a Prime member or not. Very similar to iTunes or VUDU, etc.

HOWEVER, not all of Amazon's content is available for purchase. Some of it is streaming/Prime only.

For instance, for Amazon's show Transparent, you can buy seasons 1 and 2 (see "More Purchase Options" at this link, for instance https://www.amazon.com/Pilot/dp/B00I3MQ9VG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1547144262&sr=8-1&keywords=transparent ). If you do, you'd be able to stream them through that app any time, Prime or no Prime.

However, Season 3 and 4 are not available for purchase at this time, so they'd be streaming only. They are "free" with your Prime account. If you canceled Prime, you'd lose access.
