When they give you the option to have all of your packages to be shipped on your Amazon delivery day and instead of combing them in one shipment they sent them in separate brown mailers or when you order two copies of the same movie in one order and they split them up into two bubble mailer envelope shipments

I'm sure some of you got the email today.

Now Amazon Prime Video will have ads in their streaming content.

But hey, just pay $2.99 a month for no ads...on top of the $140/year membership.

Yeah, I think I complained about it back in September when they announced they would do it in 2024 (of course it's January of 2024).

I am sure Bezos will use that ad money to give his employees raises and better benefits.

Streaming services -- and Amazon Prime in particular -- are really a goldmine for advertisers. They know your name, where you live, and what you watch. And, in Amazon's case, they know also know what you shop for and buy. And, on top of all of the information we voluntarily give out to social media sites like facebook, tik-tok, and instagram, there are probably insanely detailed profiles available out there for advertisers.

I remember a while back that a father found out his teenage daughter was pregnant because Target was keeping track of her shopping habits, figured out she was pregnant, and started sending her exclusive deals for baby items.

Corps datamine all available info on every consumer in the United States. There are methods to confuse the system unless you have an incredibly unique name. The EU was very smart and proactive passing those data privacy laws.

I assume you can't cancel the $14.99 Amazon prime monthly fee and just get prime video with ads for $2.99?

Ads are annoying but that might be a great deal and if it covers 2024 Thurs Night football games as well.

I mean you still need to pay for prime video with ads ala carte.

Re: The complaining about Amazon thread

So I ordered a book that was due to arrive today, but they sent me a message of a "problem with your order" and the explanation was the product was damaged and undeliverable.

So they're giving me a refund. Why don't they just send me another copy of the book?

That happened to me before. They refunded me because the product I ordered was out of stock.

Is this the place to complain about Amazon Prime movies having commercials now? Despicable! Totally ruins the movie. Iím considering canceling in protest.

You want 4K DV/Atmos then you gotta pay or you cancel. I pay and expect the 4K/DV/Atmos.

Re: The complaining about Amazon thread

I wonder if it is because the commercials are not in Dolby Vision or Atmos?
