I'm thinking about it but I do a lot of shipping.
If you cancel prime do you get a refund on the unused portion?

If I can pick up my orders there, then I'll cancel Prime entirely.

It's just beginning. By next year you will likely have to pay to watch most college and pro football games.
I committed to it already. I don't see it as a barrier.
Not enough dough to worry about and besides, I'm tired of taking meaningless stances on principle which have absolutely no effect on the general situation.
The free shipping will eventually pay for prime. I'm thinking I may re-subscribe to Netflix, I stopped watching it years ago, and ended our subscription. I'm not happy that they choke their 4K streaming substantially. We'll see.
Years ago they were the best one-stop-shopping for just about everything, delivered to your door. Now there are gazillions of other online businesses that provide equivalent services.
But my main complaint about Amazon is their film options. Content of any quality hides amongst a vast and impenetrable selection of junk films. Good luck sorting through their dreck. Instead, go directly to review sites like the NYT, vulture.com, or pastemagazine.com, which summarize the best of Amazon Prime for any given month. But after 5 years as a Prime Video customer, it's trouble finding anything worth watching, as I've already seen the best of what they have to offer.
Then just yesterday I got an email from Amazon. Telling me they will insert commercials into my film time, and charge me another 3 dollars per month if I want to be commercial free. For me, that is the last straw! Has broken my will to continue with their services.
Plenty other reasons to quit Amazon too. Scammers on their website. Bogus reviews. Poor customer service. Treating their employees like slave labor. Yada, yada, yada. Way past time I move on.
It's just too darned convenient for me - and Jeff Sleazos Enterprises seem to have stuff in stock even when the original manufacturers and suppliers themselves are out of specific items. I don't have the will to fight the good fight anymore, but I wish you luck!
I presume you are referring to Amazon Prime video streaming to including Ads unless you pay more.
Luckily, I watch maybe one show a year on Amazon Prime video, so as long as Amazon HD music doesn't impose Ads (THAT would be the end), I'm afraid many of us are addicted to the convenience of Amazon deliveries, especially knowing the sellers on Amazon sign agreements saying their price will not be cheaper elsewhere.
