    Amazon prime fiddle 26th Mar 17 at 10:50 AM
    Whilst checking my CC account recently I discovered that Amazon have charged me for Prime for which I have never signed up for, even more annoying they did the same last year and I missed that. Amazon refunded me the £158 straight away but I am still waiting for a satisfactory explanation. Not to put to finer point on it this is theft.

    if i want to avail myself of their 1 month trial i make and order and then i go into the prime settings and cancel it - get full use of the prime membership for that month before it expires

    never had a problem with this before its just appears that some people dont cancel within the time period

    Same happened to me, I got refunded as I contacted them quickly and I never used a free one day delivery service.

    Dont know how it happened, amazon do often popup a box for you to sign up to prime when submitting orders, and is it possible I clicked without realising, I guess, but considering you have to click twice as also need to confirm I dont think I did it.

    I am back on prime now but only for one month, needed something delivered today I ordered yesterday, and the fee for one month was the same next day for that one shipment. But I have already cancelled the auto renewal.

    It's not always a pop up - sometimes they'll sneak it in amongst the other postal options and 'auto select' it for you.

    I'm a firm believer that any sort of automatic renewal should be outlawed unless you make a positive choice to apply it, not assumed because of another choice you have made.

    I'm a firm believer in everyone taking the time to read all the T&Cs of the services they sign up to BEFORE they sign up to them.
