    I have had Amazon Music as an app since I first used Amazon - and it's got free digital versions of every CD I ever bought via Amazon on it. But I'm confused now what comes with the basic app, what is free with Prime, and what is the difference with Prime Unlimited (there is a one month free with Prime, but then it goes to £10.99 pm according to the messages I've seen). Apart from songs/tracks and albums, there are playlists, podcasts, music stations, vidoes and more. Too much stuff and not enough time.

    Still worth it , it's been that price since 2014, I save a fortune in postage , great turnaround times for urgent needs , the easy bird Prime deals are excellent, music , even shows some footy .. I will drop Netflix as it offers less.
    God speed Jeff..

    The basic free app is free but has adverts , as does Spotify.......but they are not that often as to be a pain

    That's the only difference I can work out

    The Spotify pay route seems to have the biggest bank of music according to research

    Perhaps you’ve not noticed the global supply chain issues and how the cost of everyday things has increased significantly over the last year including oil and paperboard packaging.

    I get at least 2 deliveries from Amazon every week often for household items like rubbish bags, washing tablets, dog food etc.

    It’d cost me much more than their fee even if they’d doubled the price. The most valuable thing however is the time I get back.

    Free delivery on every ‘Prime’ item normally within 24 hours and often on the same day. Amazon Music is free with it (but that’s pretty shit as it doesn’t carry anywhere near the catalogue of Apple/Spotify or Deezer) Kindle Books, Prime TV (arguably as good as Netflix now) Amazon Photos(free storage of all your digital photos)…. there’s probably more that I’m not aware of.

    I'd spend more in fuel and wear and tear on the car.

    No brainer in my opinion

    includes the Prime TV, I watched " straight outa Compton / directors cut " last night
    You'd be bonkers paying the monthly fee for a year.
    12x£9 = £108

    Annual fee is going up to £95.
    The amount of use in our house makes it well worth it.

    Re: Amazon Prime

    I think Amazon are justifying the hike by saying they have even more Premier League games showing next season. Not really much cop if a) you don't like football b)you're not interested in the prem. Which I'm not to be honest, unless City are there. Having said that, I'd like to see how Forest do this coming season, and will take an added interest if Leeds and/or Everton struggle next season.

    Don't make me laugh folks

    The local plumber puts up his rates a few quid and you drop him and go for the next cowboy ......because you can

    Amazon hikes things up and you can't go elsewhere so you defend them

    Jesus

    I use amazon but I don't think everyone needs to be falling over themselves to justify amazon's price hike

    I understand the time that Internet shopping saves but let's not pretend these buggers are a charity

    If Cardiff City increased tickets by 3 quid people would be having fecking kittens on here and the club would be accused of fleecing the customers 🙄

    That's exactly what amazon are doing with Prime. It doesn't matter that some people think its already a good deal . They are stiffing customers because customers can't really go elsewhere .

    Re: Amazon Prime

    Mine is 36 euro a year, going up to 49.90, nearly 40% increase. Like Sludge says, they do a service but no need to fall over yourselves justifying that sort of increase, especially given record profits, government subsides, low wages, appalling working conditions, zero corporation tax, and the union busting tactics they use.

    Not even sure my Kids watch the streaming service, will soon find out when it's switched off in December.

    Thanks for the reminder

    Re: Amazon Prime

    Used to use it a lot (especially during lockdowns) but I did get more and more uneasy about paying a fair whack for the privilege of being tied into mostly shopping at Amazon so I cancelled about 6 months ago.

    Fair enough if you use the extras though (I found there wasn't much on Video or Music that I was using) and their customer service/returns policy is very good.

    Gotta love the cost of living crisis there will be thousands spending £3.50 to £5 a pint this Saturday and I'm guessing an average spend with grub 40 to 50 bucks .

    Re: Amazon Prime

    Put into perspective with lots of things its still incredible value really. But only if you find value in it.

    As I don't watch prime enough or buy every month from Amazon I tend to take the fairly regular trials and sometimes just pay the odd month here or there. I find it worthwhile for the next day delivery at certain times of year.
