tronagirl: Amazon Go could be convenient, but I expect that it will only be seen in affluent neighborhoods for quite awhile. It's one thing to test something like this in Silicon Valley and quite another issue to test this kind of thing in a high crime area.

panamint_patty: High crime areas are toxic. Nothing flourishes there except crime. It's too bad our prison system can't hold all the degenerates who ruin things for everyone else. As for Amazon, at least they're trying new things. They may not be perfect, but they are far from being the scum of the Earth!

How A Scam Called “Brushing” Is Used To Inflate Online Reviews
This is very strange. Customers receiving free stuff and the problem isn't Amazon, but unknown people attempting to manipulate Amazon's rating system.

How can the cost of something double? Are they adding all sorts of services to the Prime package? It would take a lot to justify doubling the price!

Had me scared for a minute. When I googled I found out that it's only going up to $119 on three other websites. Also if you read the comment section on the video you posted they agree with the 119, one even calling the video fake news which it probably is. Still 20% is a huge increase. I will probably stay with them though as it saves me quite a lot of money. Will they be offering any additional services for that amount? I don't use any of the new ones they added now but since I live in the boonies their service is much appreciated... Except for the pantry pride discount which is a rip off and a slap in the face to 99% of Amazon's loyal customers. I would have to own a restaurant in Alaska or something in order to make that one work.

Still seems like a large rate increase, but at least not completely ridiculous. If they included the Pantry service at that price then it might be worth it, but even with the music and video offerings Prime seems overpriced as it is and adding twenty percent seems hard to actually justify.
