    All I know is, I can send my husband to pick up milk and he will spend $100 on cookies. :D

    Honestly, with all the world's travels I did with husbands the stores I remember and miss the most for good items, isn't Walmart but Target!

    I wouldn't mind the membership but only as a free loyalty cards. I never buy enough nor can I warrant the train fares added onto it. It would be a loss of money and not a gain. Sorry!

    I think they can also palm merchandise and produce onto people who might not choose the items. It allows them to get rid of aging stuff easier if need be. I have had enough bad experiences with just ordering online and picking the stuff up.

    I thought the same thing, but I don't think that anyone here has experienced that. I've yet to try it.

    If it was cleverly done, they might not notice since they don't have stuff to compare.

    They DO do that , and we have experienced it. Once I got cucumbers that were slimy , the little ones that come in a bag. Another time, I got rotten potatoes, and it seems like there have been other things, too….bad avocados. However, when you report it, they take off the charges, with no questions; but it seems to me like they should not be stocking products in that bad of condition.
    The one that really makes me mad is when something is by the item (one price), like a pineapple, all of them are $2.50 no matter what size they are, and they will find the smallest pineapple possible and bring it for me. I can’t get money back, because i did get the item, but it is certainly not the pineapple I would have chosen myself.

    I am on my son's business Prime account with Amazon. There is no set amount we have to order in order to get the benefits of Prime. Since it is a business account, there are other family members as well as business members on the same account. Thousands of dollars are used for this account daily, so I guess Amazon doesn't require any set amount from us.
