    Just bought one of the 500GB PS4 bundles, couldn't resist at that price with free shipping, I will sell the games and controller to a mate of mine who has an electronics shop, for €60ish, then I get the PS4 for €149. Might just keep it in the box for exploiting in the future.

    Estimated delivery 23rd August, wow. Lucky Im not in a rush. :)

    be careful and check ur bank accounts. I was trying to buy a full membership to mediafire to backup all of my mods, and it wouldn't go through. as it turns out, I was in the red by $25 or so since I have no income. the reason - amazon took $99 out of my account for amazon prime even though I never bought anything from them. I hate amazon. this is the third time this has happened just for simply having an account with them and a debit card on file. I can't tell u how many times amiibos have arrived from amazon damaged. best buy is much better especially with their gamer card. 2 years, $30 and 20% off gaming merchandise. I've yet to have a damaged amiibo box from them.

    I've been using Amazon prime for a few years, and getting a student discount as well (a half off), [​IMG]

    There isn't much to worry for me :)

    I think the problem here is that amazon prime is misleading. u can get these great deals, yes, but u have to pay $99 upfront for them.

    edit: and on top of that, I got charged for not buying anything...simply being an amazon member.

    Yeah the prime isn't worth if you don't buy enough stuff and use their streaming service.

    it pisses me off that yet again they charge me for it. the first couple times were due to selecting free two-day shipping which they don't even tell u about when u select it. this last time I got charged for no reason. amazon just sucks. they're about as bad as ebay in terms of bs. I've stuck with best buy and their gamer's card for everything now. the only thing is doesn't cover is systems, but with $99 on amazon ur paying nearly full price anyway.

    Dunno, maybe your trial was expired and got charged for the subscription at full price, I would probably reconsider if I have to pay for 99 yearly, for now I am only paying like $50 and already took enough advantages for one day free shipping and such

    My thoughts exactly you only get the free membership first time only if you cancel then reup you get charged

    I actually saved over 50% on that PS4, fairly delighted, that's like $200 off on one purchase.

    I kind have a bit of a love hate relationship with Amazon, I hate what they stand for and that they are pricing so many smaller business' out of the market, but when they offer a PlayStation at 50% off I cant resist :D

    I think only getting the free membership the first time you sign up is normal, its the same with PSN afaik, it would be a bit of a loophole if you could just keep cancelling and reapplying to get the free trial.

    I find the Prime membership is worth it for me because I buy at least 1 thing a month off amazon and it gives me free shipping on those items. I occasionally use the Video streaming too.

    What I like about Amazon is that they don't ask many questions if you have an issue, for example I had an SSD package arrive recently and there was a rip in the package and it was completely empty, I just rang Amazon and spoke to a nice Indian lady who arranged for everything to be sent again. Also I like the fact you can cancel for free if items are not shipped yet, its really handy, sometimes I buy stuff on impulse and then change my mind, or see a better deal. And the fact they pay for return postage if you have an issue is a big plus as well.

    ^Exactly why I like prime myself
    I use everything
    2 day shipping free
    vid streaming
    music on prime
    free books on prime
    for a $109 a year well worth it
    and I sometimes have 2 to 3 things ordered a month they probably wish I never signed up ;)

    amazon should not be in the business of charging people for prime for no reason. I didn't have a free trial beforehand or was annually charged for something I was using. funny that it happens on or around prime day. when u have no income, it's kinda difficult to warrant $99 especially when u rarely use amazon.

    Im sure if it was completely for no reason and you complain they will refund you, they have so much money that they can afford to and seem to have no problem with resending items or refunding people, But its quite possible you had signed up for a trial while clicking on free shipping without realising the free shipping was part of Prime, and then forgot to cancel or something like that, check your inbox for "amazon". Happened to a friend of mine but it wasn't such a big deal as he pays monthly, if that's the case and you have used the Prime for something like free shipping or streaming a movie, then it will be much harder/impossible to claim a refund, they will know if you've used it or not.

    You say you "rarely" use it, and "the first couple of times" , so I would check to see if you subscribed yourself.

    Received the slim PS4 today, a lot quicker than the original shipping estimate. It came with 4.55 FW, thought it might be a little lower tbh but it was amazon so not too surprised either. PS4 Slims are nice and small, smaller than a PS3 slim anyway, fairly cool. The new dualshock 4s are nice too, first time ive seen one, Matt black with grey buttons is nice, not that mad about the silver controller tbh but it was basically free so its ok. :)

    I got to the bottom of the amazon prime fiasco last week. amazon admitted that they screwed up. the last thing I had bought from amazon in general was back in February, and that was in no way associated with amazon prime, so I knew it wasn't anything I had done. as a result, amazon also paid for the overdraft charges. I back in the black now. :)
