Amazon Prime price increase to $99 a year

I received this in my inbox this morning: We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing. The annual rate will be $99 when your membership renews on August 28, 2014. Even as fuel and transportation costs have increased, the price of Prime has remained the same for nine years. Since 2005, the number of items eligible for unlimited free Two-Day Shipping has grown from one million to over 20 million.

The Best FLAT Extensions Cords

It seems one can never have enough extension cords and the following extension cords are particularly useful. They are flat they so you can put something close to an outlet and still utilize the receptacle, this is of course great to go behind furniture or wall-mounted flat panels. I use a number of them in my house and here are my favorites: Coleman Cable 03518 Flat Plug Extension Cord, 16/3 Grounded with 3-Outlet Trinector Tap, 12-Foot http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BQT7B6?ie=UTF8&tag=pixensity-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000BQT7B6The Coleman Cable SlenderPlug

Make Amazon MP3 stores downloads on SD card

I have been investigating the best way to have Amazon’s Android MP3 player store music downloads on a MicroSD card (instead of internal storage). So far reports are somewhat conflicting… I hope to have some better, and definitive, news to report soon! Amazon MP3 won’t save music files to SD Cardhttp://androidforums.com/incredible-support-troubleshooting/250489-amazon-mp3-wont-save-music-files-sd-card.htmlWhen the HTC Incredible was first launched, it did not include the Amazon MP3 app. However, I was able to find it on the web and install it.

Amazon closes affiliate program for MO residents

Bad news today related to legislation passed here in MO. I wish that Governor Nixon had not signed this legislation. Amazon has no operations in Missouri.

Amazon post order price guarantee reduced to 7 days [DETAILS]

Traditionally Amazon has offered a 30-day post order price guarantee:  if you order an item and Amazon lowers the price within 30 days, you could contact them to receive a refund of the price difference. They then stopped honoring the guarantee around September 1st 2008 only to reinstate it again at various times, the latest being early 2013*. One thing has been fairly consistent: the 30 day time period. However, they have modified the program once again and it is now valid for
