Just had my Amazon Prime membership renew and once again I could not be any happier with my membership.
I first joined July 2013. Over the year I had a few packages that missed the promised shipping date by one day. Not a big deal, but for each package that was late Amazon renewed my membership by a month. So the first year of my membership got increase by four months!
This takes my first year membership up to Nov. 2014. My membership renewed three days ago and I was expecting to pay the new membership fee of $99 because on my amazon prime membership page it says...
On November 09, 2015, you will be charged $99 for a year of Prime.
I click on the invoice link and it says they charged me $79, the old price! Thinking it's some kind of glitch, typo what have you I check my visa bill and see in fact I was only charged $79 for another year of prime membership.
A few months ago I ordered a Carbon Monoxide Alarm from Amazon. It was to show up two days later on a Friday via UPS, second day shipping. Got home that Friday and no package even though the UPS tracking showed it was delivered to my front door. For one thing UPS always delivers to our side door, not the front. I checked with the neighbors and no one seen a package around for me.
So I contacted Amazon, via there chat and explained the deal to them. They said give it until Monday. They would email me Monday to see if I received it and if not send me a replacement or a refund, my choice and asked what I preferred. I said I would simply like a replacement if it did not show and would let them know Monday.
Well the original one showed up next day air via UPS that Saturday morning with a different tracking number on it. I never did receive a email from Amazon that following Monday, but Tuesday I received a second Carbon Monoxide Alarm free of charge.
I feel my first year of Amazon Prime membership has more then paid for itself. I was going to be happy to pay the $99 for another year, but heck, the old rate of $79 is even better.
