I’m Starting to Have Serious Doubts About Amazon Prime

My own personal Amazon Prime day is in a week. It’s not the day that Amazon puts a lot of random crap on sale. (That’s in approximately two weeks.) My day is when Amazon will charge me £79 for another year of membership. That’s £30 more than what I paid five years ago, when I signed up for a free trial of Prime and forgot to cancel it.

Everyone has a Prime account now, don’t they? It’s become almost an afterthought—a utility bill paid once a year (or once a month) in return for fast delivery, a Netflix clone, a Kindle lending library, and some other bits and pieces.
