If you live in the modern world, you’ve probably bought something from Amazon. Even if, like me, you despise tax evasion, which they are well known for. To boycott such companies, you would be cutting off your nose to spite your face, simply to prove a point. Shamefully, not only do I but a lot of things from Amazon, I am also a Prime member.
What I am pleased to say, however, is that I rarely pay for the service. As I have previously said, I buy a lot online. I rarely go to the shops. Therefore, most things I buy, come from Amazon. Over the course of a month, an order is delayed. While this would annoy most people, it pleases me. The reason that I get excited by a late delivery, is because any hindrance caused to me by Amazon, however small, means a month’s free Prime!

All I do is monitor my orders. As soon as I notice that one may be late, I email their customer service department to complain. Try this yourself. Don’t be rude, but remember to use phrases like “As a Prime customer, I expect my orders to be delivered on time”. Another good one is to point out the fact Amazon state “Guranteed” when referring to the delivery date.

You may think that this is a little petty, but remember, I was given £10 last week, because Amazon delivered Call of Duty 4 a day late. Yesterday, I managed to get a months free Prime, worth £7.99, because some of my Christmas shopping did not arrive when it should have.

If you still feel uneasy about this kind of behaviour, remember Amazon’s tax dodging naughtyness… then call a free months Prime a tax rebate.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
