Bluddy Amazon

Did a search for printer inks yesterday and ended up on the French Amazon site. OK not bad prices and when I tried to buy some and input all my CC and delivery details I noticed 'it' had also included a subscription to blooming PRIME.

No amount of trying to go back and delete PRIME worked and in the end had to cancel the whole order and hope it had dispensed with PRIME.
Nope, still got some 'congratulations' about how wonderful PRIME was and all my so called benefits.

Took almost an hour to wade through all my new account options to finally find and cancel my PRIME. From then on I was bombarded with choices to rejoin and benefit again.

Whole evening wasted over Amazon virus like marketing. Back to square one again searching for some good value inks that don't crucify me on Brexit postage.

Did you take advantage of the Free delivery before you cancelled Ray? Michelle has done this before I think but you are right. Its like a bloody scam.

I guess I did Barry but then chose a local drop off place which is also free.
Just tried again and the item only has the PRIME option circle blued and nothing I do changes it.

So much for making life easy.
Just went on the French e-bay site as most ink purchases are post free to French address's.
Bought the inks and went to pay giving a French Credit Card number. This had to be verified with a code sent to phone. Code OK but would not accept the card. So use another card this time a UK one. Code OK but refused due to address being in UK. Can't change the address.
So then have to set up a DD with my French bank. More codes until finally my purchase of inks is accepted.

Easy??? It never used to be like this.

Amazon prime behaves like a man made virus. You have to be totally on your guard and have the persistence of a 3 yr old to cancel it. I now refuse to visit Amazon in any guise!

Yup, lasers rule, no drying out, not really more expensive to buy when you factor in toner costs are similar but las much longer, no runs if it gets wet either.

I bought a cheapo Brother one about 5 years ago still on the original toner, I have a spare but not ready to change yet, it has wifi too so it just lives in the back bedroom waiting patiently.

I've really sold on Eson tanks since I bought one from Aldi online. Excellent no drying out and much, much cheaper to run than non tanks. I agree that lazers are better and had a Lexmark B&W one for ages until the drivers started to behave oddly with the lastest software. Could'nt afford a new colour one. I think that the tank is probably cheaper to run even than the old Lexmark.
