I've seen it happen if you left something in your cart too long, we're talking like a day or something though.

That was my take, too. Just seems sorta shady to expect me to waive my paid-for right to 2-day Prime shipping out of the kindness of my heart. Oh well. I know to look for it now. A long as I can remember to switch it back to 2-day Prime shipping I should be OK.

Glad I'm not the only one it's happening to.

There is nothing secret about this recalculation. Amazon says that they do this, and they have to because it's the law. (Or at least their interpretation of the law.)
Amazon is correct.
For cross-border sales within the EU they have to apply the VAT of the country they are delivering to:
Quote:
Special rules may apply when you buy goods from another EU country for delivery to your country of residence. If the company you buy from sells goods over a certain value to your country, where the goods are delivered, they cannot charge VAT in the country where you make your purchase.

Instead, they have to apply VAT in the country where the goods are delivered – VAT of destination. The maximum amount for these cross-border sales is set by each EU country at either EUR 35 000 or EUR 100 000. This means that most major online retailers delivering within the EU will have to apply the VAT of destination rule.
(This is also the case for digital content such as eBooks, regardless of the amount sold.)

Thank you!

after reading that information I understand why the other stores didn't use this, it's not likely a small/medium store will have made more than 35000 € sold to Portugal.

My faith in amazon is restored, shame that costumer support didn’t know about this.
