Haha, me too. But I have saved the items I want to purchase to my 'save for later' list so all I have to do is just purchase it. I want to try to get it done early this year.Amazon Prime really enables some bad behavior (procrastination) with me and the holidays. I usually do my Christmas shopping at the last minute.
I agree! And I think some retailers are already catching on by “price matching” with Amazon, but that’s about the extent of it. There are some things you just can’t find in the stores that they sell on there.Amazon is kicking retail butt. I hope we see some real competition. They are already too big, they take a toll on their employees, but they’ve transformed home delivery into unbelievable convenience, fast delivery, easy returns, in many cases free returns, the world of retail at your finger tips. Why chose between 1-3 items and run all over town to do it, when you can choose between 10-100 items. There is no going back.
Happy New Years! 🎉
At this point I’ll acknowledge that Amazon is not always cheaper, it’s always good to price compare. I ended up buying an Apple TV box at Walmart online. But any retailer who wants to gouge you on shipping, is in serious trouble imo.Think it is canceled again for us for now. We usually order things in spurts and don't really use the other extras. We don't order often enough to do yearly. If you order enough and would use the other perks, it is definitely worth it. Just worth it for the shipping when we do order things. Something I remember more every time we order from someone else, and even the time to ship is ridiculously slow on top of however long it takes to from shipper to us. And most of the time to choose any expedited choices is ridiculously expensive anywhere else. A whole month of price is substantially cheaper.
I have actually used Walmart quite a bit here lately also... I have used Target in the past, but to me, there online experience is no where near that of Amazon or Walmart at this point.At this point I’ll acknowledge that Amazon is not always cheaper, it’s always good to price compare.

$59 / year for student.Is there a significant difference between Prime Student and regular Prime?
I agree that this is annoying. I found something on pantry the other day I wanted and couldn't order it because I didn't need any other "pantry" type items.I'm also annoyed sometimes in having to make separate orders for Prime and Prime Pantry items: even "save for later" doesn't allow for saving items into Prime and Prime Pantry categories... there's just one cart and one "save" slot, and an order cannot contain both types. I end up cursing when a "simple" shopping list I had prepared in advance can take me 20 minutes to figure out whether to carve it up at Amazon or try to shop the whole thing out at Walmart.
