Why I'm Canceling Amazon Prime
When I first joined Amazon Prime it was for the fast, 2 day shipping with no minimum order. The price was $79/year and I loved it! Throughout the years they have added more and more Prime benefits - Prime Video, Prime Music, and more. I have used Prime Video here and there. I recently signed up for Spotify so I don’t use Prime Music at all. They also added One Day and even Same Day shipping on some products and I have enjoyed that, too.
Over time, they have gradually increased their pricing and now it’s $119/year. Even still, I have kept my Prime membership due to the amount I used the shipping. I love Subscribe and Save to set it and forget it on household basics.
The shipping service level has decreased. Even before Covid-19, things were not arriving as promised, it’s been very inconsistent.
I’m working on reducing impulse purchases. Not having Prime will help me slow down and consider more carefully.
I’m not getting any special pricing on my yearly fee for being a longtime Prime member.
