100 Million Prime members (disclosure: I'm one.)

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 05:57:40 GMT

100 Prime members and I am one. I won't count out the benefits, at this point in time for that might seem crass. When I first joined I believe it was $49 per year, but maybe they enticed me with a $39 offer. I am still happy. :) *100 Mil Prime!* (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/18/amazon-ceo-jeff-bezos-2018-shareholder-letter.html) Image: https://fm.cnbc.com/applications/cnbc.com/resources/img/editorial/2017/07/10/104577651-GettyImages-520695288.600x400.jpg?v=1499719942



Breaking the Seal Does Not Void the Warranty

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 07:00:52 GMT

*FTC: You Can't Void a Warranty by Breaking a Seal (https://www.pcmag.com/news/360366/ftc-you-cant-void-a-warranty-by-breaking-a-seal)* ---Quote--- We've all purchased products that have a little sticker on the back that says something along the lines of "warranty void if removed." Or you actually read the manual or visit a product website where it states any warranty is void if you don't carry out repairs using official parts and service providers. Well, it turns out such demands and claims are illegal, and the FTC is taking action against such practices. In a post on the FTC website, the Federal Trade Commission details how it has sent warning letters to six major companies who market and sell "automobiles, cellular devices, and video gaming systems in the United States." In each case, the company states its products must not use unauthorized parts or service, be used with products not sold or licensed by the company, or have had a warranty seal altered, defaced, or removed. Limiting a warranty based on any of those restrictions is actually illegal in the US, classes as deceptive under the FTC Act, and is prohibited by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. ---End Quote---
