One of the things about Amazon Prime that I’ve noticed over the years is that the price of movies it offers is very flexible. As I’m into classic pictures I tended to check back now and again to see the prices of movies I want. When one drops to $5 before I buy it
Today Bringing up Baby with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn was $4.99 and I was about to pick it up when I remembered Jeff Bezos remark about not caring if he loses conservative customers.
Amazon is very convenient for me, and I have literally hundreds of dollars in points that I save for Christmas to buy gifts with but today at this moment while I would really like that classic screwball comedy it just isn’t worth giving Bezos that fiver. So I gave it a pass.
And while I suspect he will not notice or miss my five dollars I’m positive me keeping it will give me more satisfaction than he will get by not having his boodle uncontaminated by a Trump voter’s funds.
The real question is, how many times will that remark come to mind when I’m about to buy something from them? I suspect for a very long the answer is going to be: At least one more Mr. Bezos.
