If you try to place an order at Amazon.com today, get ready for some trouble.
The checkout system will not let you make a purchase unless you agreed to do a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime delivery service. There was simply no way the order could be placed without this occurring. So I placed the order, and called their support line (800 ) to cancel Amazon Prime($79 year)
You may wonder why this is, but according to Amazon support, its a glitch. ( I am suspicious of this).
If it is a glitch, announce it and apologize — if not, if its a new policy, then Amazon should not only expect to lose customers, they should also brace for an FTC investigation.
I am surprised and disappointed. Very UNAmazon like behavior . . .
