Amazon Prime Commercials = Boycott Amazon

— Amazon Prime Commercials = Boycott of buying from Amazon —

UPDATEI left Amazon with a note telling them I was displeased with their commercials, and I received this response apologizing patronizingly for me being bothered.

Hello Richard,

Thank you for contacting Amazon Digital Support.

I understand your concern regarding commercials with Amazon Prime video. I’m sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. I will surely help you.

These short video snippets only appear before or after select Prime Video titles and are designed to share information about the benefits associated with your Prime membership, such as news about a new Amazon Original series or details about devices that support Prime Video.

I want to inform you with regret that you can’t turn off the short video snippets that appear before and after select Prime Videos.

I’m sorry to hear that you’re seeing the same video snippet over and over. Amazon works hard to make sure the snippets stay relevant for you.

For any further action on this concern, please write us back, we will assist you with that regards.

Customer feedback like yours really helps us continue to improve our digital video service. I’ve passed your input to the Amazon Video team for consideration as we make future improvements.

We hope to see you again soon.

We’d appreciate your feedback. Please use the links below to tell us about your experience today.
Best regards,

Conclusion of the Update

They asked for feedback, and they ignore me patronizingly.

Why do I bother? They do not offer info, unless you are programming everyone to fill your profits pockets.

I will continue down the stream my way, rowing in a different direction then the flow is going. I’m like a salmon swimming upstream to lay my eggs for the next generation. I’ll shut off the reloading of my gift card, and choose to boycott Amazon, I’ve got a lot of balance on Amazon that I have to spend. I’m guessing it will be empty by mid September.

I will be looking elsewhere till then. Algorithms program the public. What you think as relevant to me, shows your arrogance of manipulation. Bye bye Amazon.

Amazon Skirmishes

If Amazon Prime continues to put commercials in their productions, then I will seek to buy my products elsewhere.

I bought the Amazon Fire TV, in fact I bought two Amazon Fires both the wireless and the ethernet kind. Also, I still haven’t gotten the stick to work with Netflix flawlessly.

They put a commercial in The Tick TV series in their first show. I said I would boycott last year, and they’re testing me again. Also, I will unplug both Fire TVs and go another year without Amazon. I just clicked the back button and then clicked on the show again, and it was in the programming.

Since I have to pay for Amazon PRIME, I don’t like to watch marketing tricks. To view force fed commercials, when I’m paying for the service. I’m sick of Amazon all over again.

Boycott Amazon, if they’re going to continue to force feed the commercials in their Prime productions. I did it before, and I will do it again, but this time I will be serious. Do a full year instead of boycotting till February, cause it coincided with the Boycott of FB.

I won’t just unplug my Fire TVs devices, but I will go full bore to boycott all of Amazon’s services.


Don’t force feed your customers with commercials, it’s disrespectful to our intelligences. I speak only for myself, but I know I’m saying things that everyone would like to say.

Cause it goes against the marketeers lies, but if you wanted to please your customers, like you say you do

Then ban your marketing dept from force feeding the commercials. I think someone in the marketing dept is overstepping his/her bounds.
