We might join Amazon Prime today.  Now I know that this will enable me to get some goodies from the Amazon/Twitch Prime mishmash.  What is still available and how hard is it to get the stuff.  Thanks guys

If you use Amazon a lot and you find prime works well for you then, yes, it's easy to link them both (and doesn't cost any extra). My wife uses Amazon Prime all the time, so I linked it. (Make sure you're on the account as well I believe.)

I joined Prime several weeks ago. I've already rewatched the first three seasons of The Expanse and am now watching some episodes of the New Outer Limits. Lots of other stuff I'll be watching later.

Current Twitch Prime Care Package.  The Captured King Tiger stays in your garage as long as you have a linked Prime account.  The rentals expire as usual.  The Commanders and other goodies are yours to keep.  very easy to link your account in your account management section (click on your name at top right of this page).

Prime is my only source of entertainment now.  Music, videos, shows.
Prime will ship a refrigerator for free.  I save at least the amount of the subscription on shipping.
Twitch Prime is now free - look, more goodies.
If you are a student, it's half price.

Joined Prime about 24 months ago, you accumulate bonus points so that a lot of the stuff you buy becomes highly discounted, (or even free) and a lot of the stuff has free shipping. I don't watch any TV, my wife watches a little, but if we did, there is a boatload of free TV shows that a lot of people enjoy. And the Visa Prime credit card is Ichiban.

And to the WG Cultural Sensitivity Monitors/censors: Earlier this year when I made a remark about Social Justice Warriors, I got a strike. My first since Beta. But now, since I have repented of my evil ways and am no longer saying things about society and culture, I will not ask you to do anything about the poor slob who said something about socialist causes. Please don't hurt him.

Amazon is doing to old bait and switch using your tax dollars. Low low prices and free shipping now to build their monopoly but once they wipe out traditional retailers then expect all the goodies to go away.

 

Hope the cheap stuff now is worth cutting your own throats later. :bajan:

Don't care.  Honestly, enjoy it while it lasts as they're too big to stop now.  Not as one person.
I can only deal with what's in front of me, and paying $10 for shipping a textbook being a thing of the past?  Done.  Take my money.
All of the rest is gravy.  If it goes away, so be it - the free shipping it worth the sub alone.

As far as normal online purchases walmart and ebay are pretty competitive with amazon usually within a few dollars and most shipping there is free too if you buy enough but you don't get all the extra bling like streaming movies etc.

 

But I don't need any of that since all of that is free anyways online as long as you take the time to look around for a free site that doesn't drown you in advertisements.

 

Amazon will be in big trouble once the tax breaks and subsidies run out which is looking like next year or the year after once congress consolidates.

 

After that they will have to compete like a normal business and then all the free shipping and bling will evaporate or else the membership fee will zoom up like it already has several times.

Cars replaced horses and we are better off for it. They didn't give us cars then increase the cost by an order of magnitude once the monopoly was set. If amazon succeeds with its corporate charter to erase all competition and replace it with only amazon distribution what do you think is going to happen? They won't raise prices to whatever they want? It's like people are completely uneducated about business these days(or anything else really) and its all about the feelz. Amazon is not competing fairly due to its insane tax breaks on operations and its massive fraud on the taxpayer on its shipping practices. YOU as a citizen are footing the bill for their success because without the tax breaks and shipping subsidy there would be no way they could offer everything they offer for cheap especially the free shipping for even a .50 cent item. But hey who am I to talk sense into people if they want to cut their own throat? :P
