Amazon Prime Membership: Watch your bank account!

hey, just wanted to give everyone a heads up on a trick is pulling.

i recently ordered a new digital camera and i saw that you can get free two day shipping. so i clicked on the link and submitted my information. then it told me that i was a member of Amazon Prime, and i had a free trial, but i would need to pay $79 annual fee. i stopped right there and instead just went with standard shipping. well, unfortunately, i didn't read the fine print and Amazon charged me $79 yesterday. grrrrr.....

luckily, i called and bitched a little and they gave me a full refund.

i just want all of you to be aware of this. i'm normally very careful, but this one definitely tricked me.

i knew about this before, nothings free....There's always a catch.

I don't mind using the free shipping and waiting.
