There was a day a long long time ago when people needed oil.
This is not the dark ages any more and the reality is, at least in regards to America,
we don't need oil. It's just all more foolery. There are many ways to heat a house.
There are many ways to run a vehicle.
Is all those dead animals people shove in their mouth every day, good for them? Of course not.
The point I make is how people do single out one product and make up
various stories, notions, inaccurate facts about it. Granted, there are
facts about Coke that certainly make it an unhealthy drink. I sure wouldn't
suggest that people sit around drinking a six pack a day. Coke either has
high fructose or aspartame of which neither is good for a person. There
is also artificial coloring. Dare I mention phosphates. So these things
are not good for a person. But....I don't think drinking a six pack of beer
a day is good for a person either.....or how about eating cake every day
or what about candy bars or what about ALL the BIG FAT OBESE people
walking around that don't even drink soda pops because they are too
busy drinking a gallon of milk every day?
They did it because they make more money and they make more money by
denying gift codes for the prime membership.
If you have gift codes you spend them for buying products.
If they were to allow prime membership with gift codes, less sales of products.
However, mostly it is all about the auto-renew. If you have auto-renew and you
forget about it after a year or now after a month, you are in fact automatically
charged again simply because you forgot to go in and cancel your prime membership.
It has nothing to do with poor. The monthly option is simply going to generate
more money for them in more ways than one. Amazon will make about $33.00
more per year from their monthly members. In addition, it will generate more
It's all about making more money and becoming the number one shopping
option in the world.
Yes Netflix is still the best. I do the streaming with 1 dvd out at a time.
Amazon Prime (yearly) is a good deal for me because I do shop there
a lot. I buy Bo's dry dog food at Amazon. He eats the 'Blue' brand for
small breed that is grain free, artificial free, color free. He is spoiled.
Also I am a member of discount sites. Today for for example I purchased
several items that if I had paid full cost, it would have been way over $100.
Plus I have to order those discounted items, one at a time and if I wasn't
prime, I'd have to pay shipping individually on most of those items. As
a prime member, my total cost was $3. So in essence, in just one day my
yearly prime pays for itself.
I agree the glass pop bottles are always the best. I rarely see them and
never buy them. I buy the cans and the plastic bottles and also at times
the big plastic jugs.
I can remember many many many years ago, placing a coke bottle in
the freezer and forgetting about it.....what a mess! Broken glass!
