Mods feel free to move this, but I couldn't find a category that was a good fit for it. Plus, I order nearly all of my Blu-rays from them...or, I did, until now, so it could at least tangently belong here. Amazon sent me an email today (and I'm sure many of you received it also) indicating their yearly rate would be increasing from $99. to $119. That's a full 20% increase in one blow! Plus, it wasn't many years ago when they upped the rate from $79. Considering this company hauls in more money than anyone can even imagine, hires people for their warehouses in what I have read are near-sweat shop conditions for low salaries, and increasingly does not (for me, at least) meet its guaranteed 2-day delivery dates, was this necessary? How about a multi-billion dollar corporation absorbing a cost increase once in a while for the sake of good customer relations? Guess that loss leader sales and programs are going the way of the dodo. I called Amazon -- a bit too soon after I read that email, I'm afraid -- and ranted to who I assume was an Asian woman, apologizing to her with an assurance that I knew this was no fault of hers, and asking that she specifically send the recording of my complaint to someone in power, with the request that I be contacted in return. I am certainly cognizant of the fact that prices go up for everyone, but it is becoming much less cost-effective for me to continue with this membership if I have to dole out a quarter of a week's salary to do so. Anyway, there. I feel better now. Flame barrier up.
