You're right about that, Ann. I don't buy books anymore, so it gets harder to find items to make up the $25 minimum.Ann in Arlington said:Gertie has an excellent point: I would do the same thing. . .buy something else I didn't REALLY need to get super saver shipping. That was o.k. before because there was always a book I'd want but with the Kindle, well, not so much.
I did the same thing when I ordered my daughter's Kindle, it was easy to cancel - big thing is to remember to cancel. I set myself a reminder on my phone.kim said:I used the 30 day free trial when I ordered my Kindle and then canceled at the end of the trial period.
It was really nice to have but I just don't order enough online to justify the expense.
I hate them too, granted we are paying for them up front with the Prime membership but at least I know what they are and I'm not going to have more added on at checkout. Getting the stuff in two days is a bonus too.Jaasy said:I hate shipping costs, so the first place I stop when I want to order anything is Amazon because of Amazon Prime...
LaraAmber, You are my hero! Patient and organized are two things I wish I could be.LaraAmber said:I don't have Amazon Prime, and never pay shipping costs. I can afford to wait a few extra days for my items (yep Super Saver Shipping for my Kindle, that was agony). Getting items quickly is a luxury. I've never had a problem reaching $25 for a purchase, if it's not a big enough order I can either pull something from my wish list, or add it to my wishlist and wait until I want something else as well.
I do ship quite a few presents out of state, but I'm also on top of things enough to order far enough in advance to use the Super Saver. (I also never check out at a retailer website without first checking out retailmenot.com for any coupon codes.)
