I've just been discussing Amazon with Johnny on one of his deals. There are of course a lot of deals on here that rely on having an Amazon Prime membership. I know I've touched on this before but intrigued about whether everybody using Amazon Prime is actually getting the most out of it.
You pay £7.99 a month but assuming you don't use the video, do you save enough money to cancel out that monthly fee? Also, do you think you would buy less if you didn't have Prime and with that in mind, is Prime actually increasing your spending? Maybe you don't even know it's happening or don't want to admit it!
I for example had a Prime trial at some point last year and suddenly bought loads of stuff on there, half of which I know was not needed. Without a doubt, it was because I knew it would be at my front door the next day.
I think it's a little bit like going into Aldi for some milk and coming out with milk, a cordless drill and a pair of steel toe capped boots. My opinion is they've created a shopping experience that encourages spending but have somehow convinced people to pay a fee for it. If you have an addictive personality, I think it's worse.
What do you reckon?
