If you've bought anything from Amazon this Christmas (and who hasn't?) are you sure you didn't unwittingly sign up for Amazon Prime at a cost of £49 a year?


Angry Amazon shoppers have been hit with a £49 charge for a special delivery service they claim they never signed up to.


Unwitting customers who took a free trial with Amazon Prime have been automatically slapped with a bill without warning.


Many did not even know their trial was up or that they had been charged, until they saw £49 taken on their bank statement.


And others who missed the small print did not realise they would have to pay extra after 30 days unless they cancelled..

I bought from Amazon recently for some Christmas gifts and the Amazon Prime free trial was a tickbox that was not automatically ticked. You had to opt-in to the free trial, not opt-out.


If you're ticking a box on a shopping website, you really should be actually reading what the tickbox is for.

I've been using Prime happily for about two years now - it all seemed perfectly clear to me from the outset, including how to cancel if I didn't want to keep using it. As the article comments note, Amazon are refunding the fee for anyone who claims to have subscribed to the service by mistake.
