Amazon Prime members now get Free Shipping at Woot.com

Quote:
Amazon has just added another perk to their ever-growing list of Prime benefits. Prime members now get free shipping at Woot.com. Amazon acquired the daily deals site Woot! back in 2010 but hasn’t done much with it. To take advantage of free shipping, just login with your Amazon account at woot.com/prime. Prime members get free standard shipping on all orders and free express shipping on Shirt.Woot orders.

Amazon UK have finally caught on to low-value item no-rush shipping credits. No-rush shipping is now only available on orders of £20 or over. Well, that's still 5% back as digital credits. Not too shabby.

I'm sad, but not surprised. I didn't see how they could be breaking even on it.

I wondered why only some orders offered no rush shipping. I was enjoying them

I noticed that I was no longer being offered them ,even on stuff sold and shipped by Amazon. So you think there is a £20 cutoff ?
Could be, as I did get 9ne a few days back 9n a larger order, but not on several items costing about £10 each, bought inividually..
Shame if true, I had Florence used to collecting them and spending on TV series in Amazon video.

In my case they have been losing sales as I have been going to checkout, looking for the no rush option, not seeing it. Thinking ok be like that then, and dumping the order into a buy later pile.

If they were losing money on the sales because of shipping costs and digital credits, they'd consist it a sale well lost (and it sounds like a sale postponed at that).

From the No-rush shipping help page:

"Certain No-Rush promotions require the Amazon Prime-eligible products in your basket to total £20 or more."

Does not work for me. To get a typical digital video with credits I need to shop ten times before the expiry dates on the credits start to wipe them out. ..

I don't spend 200+ on sold by Amazon items regularly

(**** We are spending more than usual though, at the cats insistence we are prepping for a possible UK no deal brexit, and stockpiling his favourites in case there are shortages )

And burying the change notification in a line of the legalese page is not a good way to inform customers of the new £20 threshold.

I will use other sellers more, and use Amazon less.
Thier loss, as the cost to them of fulfilling a digital credit must be close to zero, - just the the marginal cost of generating another digital copy to sell and fulfill online i

A few pence in the pound, maybe.in cases where they are not the right holder anyway. Amazon produce a lot of original video.

PS for me,, the video option was the only attraction of digital credits. I get my music from Spotify and have no compulsion to want to own the MP3 files. . I can order most books from local library and I have enough of a reading backlog to wait for them to come around..
Credits stopped working in the amazon app store a long time ago.despite the emails claiming you could spend them there.

And TBH I don't really need to buy the videos. It was a nice to have hedge against shows I might want to watch again someday disappearing from prime or from netflix

The whole thing can go the way of Amazon coins (anyone remember those ) and not be really missed

It's an encouragement to people to fill their cart to a point where Amazon's not losing money on Prime shipping, as they must have been with fiddly orders which were bought separately to generate credits.

I haven't had Prime in a long time and I don't know the minimum in the UK for free non-Prime shipping, but the change makes Prime virtually a lot more expensive for former heavy generators of digital credits.

Indeed it does. I used to make my Prime subscription fee back in digital credits (which I then spent on ebooks, of course).

There was a brief golden moment - late 2016 i think - when they upped the no rush credit to £3 ( probably because they had a black friday backlog) so you could spend £2.90 and get £3 credit back. We bought a lot of bin liners that month!

It's arguably more lucrative now to buy everything on "guaranteed" next day delivery then complain about each missed delivery date. The standard compensation for anything arriving a day late used to be an extra free month of Prime, if you complained, but it has been a long time since i have had cause for complaint so I dunno if that still applies. I did clock up about 6 free months over the last few years though.
The UK advertising Standards Authority has forced them to pull the " "guarantee" claim anyway now. they found it to be misleading.

I'm bothered about the deadline, what can i do to change it and use it? :cảm ơn:
