A couple of days ago I bought two items from Amazon. At the time I proceeded through checkout as usual, or I thought so.
Today I found an email telling me of all the benefits of my new Amazon Prime subscription, all £79 of it.
Now thinking back I know exactly where I went wrong, I must have missed the button which says "free delivery" and left it on whatever the website default is, which I presume is "I'd also like Amazon Prime".
Reading the small print I think that as the goods I purchased are awaiting me at my local post office, this constitutes use of the Amazon Prime Services, so any refund I get by going through the cancellation process will be a refund minus whatever Amazon decide to charge me for use of the service.
Now I'm wondering whether it would be better to stick with my mistake, use all the services and setup the cancellation for one years time or hope that any penalty fee they apply is not extortionate as I know Amazon are not the best at dealing with person to person.
What do my learned colleagues think (bear in mind the 14 day cancellation clock is ticking).
