I canceled my prime a while ago and avoid using amazon as much as possible
I stopped mine a couple months ago, I was buying too much crap to rationalize having 2 day shipping.
Born in the RSR
It's an ok service, you can find everything you'd ever need (for example my last purchase was a set of foam protectors for my headphones) but the site is always such a clusterfuck, especially for me.
There's no amazon.ro , that just redirects to .co.uk and if i try .com i only get US sellers. So whenever I want to buy something simple I need to go to .de which will give me closer seller with much much lower delivery costs than either.
It's just such an un-intuitive mess of a site. I dunno, maybe it's really hard making infrastructure for millions of sellers but I refuse to believe that the current way it operates is even close to the best they can do. How did they even get so big with such a crap interface?
Just selling shit at a loss until it’s competitors went out of business...because capitalism is a perfect system that is impossible to abuse.

100 years from now, they'll be forcing employees to have tiny remote bombs implanted in their brain stems to go off if they ever complain about getting paid one moldy soy ration per day.
And libertarians will STILL defend it with "Just get another job!"

2027, a giant screen featuring Bezos' face addresses a crowd:
"Greetings, Amazon Family members. You have chosen, or been chosen to work at one of our finest retail centers, Amazon Fulfillment Hive 17. Remember, meeting daily quotas means you too can earn points towards upgrading your Amazon Family Member Rations from the basic free bread and water, and also your Amazon.gov Good Citizenship score!"
Also: fun fact: I worked at an Amazon center for a while.
It's rough. You have all kinds of tracking tools already at your work station. If you have more than 6 minutes of inactivity, they start docking your pay. It takes 2 minutes to get to the bathroom area, and then 2 minutes back. If you have shit, this means trying to acquire a toilet, do what you have to do, wipe, and fully wash your hands in less than 2 minutes, or they start docking your pay.
Somebody decided instead, to shit in a trashcan close to their work station.
Nobody saw them do it. Everybody was too busy focusing on their work.
