Re: Its nice to See Zappos stick to their PE /Startup Roots

@Tech4People, i've been a long time user of Amazon prime and i find that they deliver a huge amount of value what they provide. When i started, it was just two day shipping. Then it was two-day shipping and also videos to watch. Then it was two-day shipping, videos to watch, and a one book per month for my kindles. The program has changed my consumption habits and made me loyal the company over the long haul. However, i think that they will lose customers if they go up too high. I think it was 79 dollars. anything above $99 and they'll see huge attrition and maybe before that if you don't use all the perks.

Its nice to See Zappos stick to their PE /Startup Roots

Its really nice to see Zappos not lose its Individual Maverick Culture when it got acquired by a much large Company[Amazon];but here is where I worry for Amazon Shareholders(who are getting hammered bigtime this month).

Will amazon still continue (and allow this Maverick Practice) at a time when its rapidly losing Margins and Money Hand over Fist?

I just heard on Bloomberg today that they are planning to raise the Price of their Amazon Prime Service for the first time ever.

Margins under tremendous Pressure Don't permit such Luxuries.

I see either Inner-Company Conflict now or a Future Spin-off of Zappos from Amazon.

Lets see how things go.
