I don't think Amazon checks - or even cares (beyond their legal liability) - what their vendors charge. I believe vendors can opt in or out of prime capabilities as they choose. I don't believe that what happened to me was illegal, just scummy. And, who knows, perhaps the shipping charge from their location actually was $70. Unsure | :~ Caveat emptor? You're d**n skippy!

I don't find Amazon more or less risky than other sites. I find it very convenient since retiring to rural South Dakota. But I nearly always check other sites for pricing and other options before making that final click.
