All the very best folk shop with Amazon, don'tcha know?

I don't think they would have accepted me at Ashford Junior High: I was 40 when I moved there!

Glad to hear your keep your staff downstairs. Just don't let them find out about Amazon Prime: they may go the way of my staff, who have had the audacity to desert me en-masse. (Did you see what I did there?) Amazon Prime have, apparently, relaxed their membership criteria to make it available to staff as well as the hoi-poloi. And those educated in Benenden. (Pretty village, from what I remember.)

what is all this writing in international terms?
don'tcha sounds like some sort of negative dance number
en-masse is probably an overweight french person and
hoi-poloi an oriental dish
as for amazon being in their prime i will withhold my judgment until they grow up and stop trying to con their customers and my patience. i drove through benenden last week en-route (see i know french too) to the coast. it is still an unspoiled village in a nice part of kent. whoops sorry i meant to say that my chauffeur manipulated the rolls with me inside doing the royal wave to the serfs

A Merry Easter to you, RJ. Don't eat all your eggs at once. Perhaps we should invent 'Amazon Prime' Day. Or, 'Amazon Stole My Money' Day. Or Maybe, 'My Staff Left Me For Amazon Prime' Day. Actually, I think all the other posters have deserted this thread. We seem to have taken it over, somewhat.

I reckon that we have secret viewers Maggie who are more interested in our chit chat than obtaining their refunds. I had better mention that the Amazon customer services number is 0800 496 1081 so it is Good night from me and Good night from Maggie - HAPPY REFUNDS

£49 was stolen from my bank account and after signing into my Amazon account was told I don't have a Prime Account!! A provider of a service HAS to make their terms & conditions clear and obviously they have not judging by the number of complaints I have read. If Amazon are readily refunding, then that must be testament to their guilt.

not quite sure what has happened there but if you call their customer service dept on 0800 496 1081 i am sure thgat they will sort the problem out for you. it is a pity that amazon do not seem to care about their customer relationship so why not shop elsewhere like the high street? good luck and if i am not available to advise then maggie v will sort them out.

It's not a scam. Nor is it stealing, by stealth or otherwise. It's inattention to what you're doing plus failure to read the T+Cs. If people don't understand rolling subscriptions, which are common these days, they need to wise up. They also need to pay attention to what they are doing and not cheerfully check boxes

ok so we all have our opinions. i and thusands of others firmly believe that the amazon way of doing business is a version of stealth. if you need to read terms & conditions everytime that you purchase items then we are heading for a sorry world. you trust the high street shops without any such conditions so why not amazon? i suppose that the end line is that we cannot all be smart guys and are maybe too trusting. in any event why pay a year in advance for a service you may or may not utilise?

Amazon prime has taken £49 out of my account without my permission. Please put this amount back into mu account or I will not purchase anything else from Amazon

Hi Marian - Your best course of action is to ring their customer services dept on 0800 496 1081 and they will probably give you a refund with an apology if you catch them in a good mood. Then in the future check out the high street shops before they all close due to the unfair opposition as they all pay their taxes. Good luck xx

Judith? - you should never ever post your email address on a public Forum where it can be viewed by thousands of people all around the world. You are risking attracting all kinds of emails from total strangers and all with their own agendas. Amazon do not personally read these customer discussions, they are only monitored with an automated service that occasionally deletes post if certain derogatory words are used. Just like with any shop on the high street, you should always go to Customer Services.

Please edit your post, Poppet, so that you keep yourself safe online.

The same applies to Marian45 and also to Ozlem Serin...

You really need to edit your posts ASAP as you should never ever post your email addresses on a public Forum.

Please folks? - be aware and be far more careful in future when online. You never know who you are really talking to, or who will read your posts, not just today, but also in the years to come...x love suzy x

On which email did you send your complaint to??

In reply to an earlier post on 14 Jul 2014 10:33:53 BDT
R J Rosewell says:
Hi Randa - to solve your problem of being charged without your knowledge or authority merely telephone their customer service dept 0800 4961081 and they will give you a refund. If you do not complain then they will charge you £49 every year it is their idea of good customer relationship which is how they became so big and powerful.
Who knows, maybe sometime they will start paying tax on their profits instead of having an off shore evasive facility.
