Why I cancelled my Amazon Prime account

Why I cancelled my Amazon Prime account

In the beginning, I signed up for Prime, Amazon’s signature membership program, to get access to the Washington Post. For the same price, I could sign up for Amazon Prime and get six months of the Post for free—Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns the paper—plus subsequent months for $3.99. If I had to pay $99 either way, I figured, I might as well get a Prime account too.
