So for Christmas I got given an amazon gift card so had to use the amazon

Got a month's free prime and just cancelled it. By eck it was giving it the hard sell and loads of screens saying yes I really want to lose all these benefits. Only just stopped short of saying babies would die if I cancelled.

I was offered the usual free month before Christmas and took it, cancelling straightaway to kick in on 20 Dec - loads of "really" messages - and this week I have "a week for 99p" offer - my wife is tempted so she can binge watch some Amazon only TV stuff and then cancel.

I'm generally fairly anti amazon but had really no option other then to not use the card

I'll wait for them to offer me more to lure me back. The kids managed I think two series of just add magic

I've had Amazon deliveries for various items ordered elsewhere, including eBay.
Actually, it is rocket science.

Ditto - quite a few items I've bought from ebay and direct from other stores have been delivered by Amazon - by the look of it either Amazon is doing the fulfilment or is just being the delivery service.   

Amazon's testicles tentacles are everywhere.

I told them I was cancelling prime earlier, so they lobbed yet another 20 quid voucher at me. Ta, spent,well... Not quite its getting hard to find the DVDs and music in my wish list via prime.

Evidently, they belatedly noticed the obvious that all their MasterCard using customers weren't going to run out and get another credit card just to save them a bit of money.

the BBC reporter seems to think it suggests Amazon are on top because everyone with a Visa card has suddenly gone and got a Mastercard...

The email I received from them suggested they were still talking to visa which sounds to me that visa have called their bluff.
