No More Amazon :-)

TODAY I cancelled my Amazon Prime!?!?!?!

WHAT??

Me to self..."You LOVE AMAZON!!!"

I really do or did!   Not so much anymore :-(

It was set to renew in a few days and they raised the price to $119/year! That is ridiculous to me! That is a lot of money for what I use my membership for! This is not a sponsored post I just want to make sure everyone is aware of the new choice I just found out about from a co-worker.

I only use Prime for the free two day shipping - nothing else!! I do not stream videos or shows with it or any of the other "odd" things that membership gives you.

Even with Prime it seems like lately that very few things are actually arriving in two days when they are supposed to!

HERE IS THE INFO I WANT TO SHARE: I just found out from a co-worker that Walmart had free 2 day shipping if you order $35 or more.  I priced my common purchases and Walmart is actually less than or equal to the price on Amazon. Time to give Walmart a try!!! Check out what you buy on Amazon and check the price on Walmart; I bet it is the same or cheaper!


I'll let you know how happy I am in a few months after I have had time to test out Walmart and my switch! Have a great weekend guys! Love yinz!

Have any of you left Amazon Prime due to the price hike? Anyone else tried Walmart? Did you know Walmart started 2 day shipping? Is anyone else out there cheap like me? What are your favorite online purchases?

  1. I keep seeing commercials for that & thought that's interesting! I hate Amazon raised their price when its already crazy high. We actually use a lot of the streaming so we'll stick with it. But I'm interested in how you like using Walmart

    1. Hi Rebecca! I will keep you posted. I am just way too cheap to pay that renewal fee when they raised it that high and I dont use the streaming or anything else.

  2. They treat their employees like garbage and that is why I don't shop with them.

    1. Hi Julie!!! I am so glad everything is good with you!! You had me worried :-) If you log in and check under subscriptions it should tell you. Mine was going to auto charge me and it sent me a reminder two days before that I was going to be charged $129. I thought $99 was bad but I was definitely out when it went to $129. Have a great week!

  4. I will keep Amazon Prime because I order so frequently and the shipping is paid for. I also find a lot of free decent movies on Amazon. We cancelled Netflix, so I figure I'm saving there and paying a little more on Amazon. Walmart is good for grocery pick-up which I really enjoy.

    1. Hi Nonnie! Awesome! Yes, I guess if you use it for streaming it makes up for the cost. For me, all I was using was the free shipping benefit and I can get the same prices and free shipping at Walmart now. Fingers crossed I like it as much!!

  5. I have been boycotting WalMart for years. I hate the idea of the big conglomerate store, which has put so many little guys out of business. BUT I have come to realize that Amazon is not any different. It's another big conglomerate, which puts little guys out of business. I really should cancel my Prime as well and boycott Amazon as well as WalMart.

    1. Hi Patti! It is a sad state of affairs today; I guess the only way to satisfy our "I want it right now" society is with big conglomerates. I wish my local stores carried all of the things I can get from Walmart and Amazon - maybe I need to start thinking more local!!

  6. I’ve been hearing the ads for Walmart all over my radio. I’m not canceling Amazon because I make full use of the video and music services as well as the shipping. I don’t like Walmart as a consumer (I’d rather shop in Target) and I dislike the way they treat their employees.

    1. I guess there is arguments on both sides then? Hard to say which is the largest evil since others have said Amazon does not treat their employees well either. I just honestly only used shipping - so for me its a no brainer that I can get that free from Walmart and save $129/year. Have a great week!!!

  7. We don't have Amazon Prime yet but we do plan to get it but not because of the shipping factor. I always get free shipping, it just takes a few days more to get it. If you only used it for shipping then it is definitely not worth it! I agree, Walmart is a great alternative!
