- Tram Ho
On July 20, billionaire Jeff Bezos, the co-founder of Amazon, went to the edge of space aboard the New Shepard from his company Blue Origin.
Upon his return, the former Amazon CEO thanked Amazon customers and employees for making the trip possible: “I want to thank every Amazon employee and every Amazon customer for all of you who paid for the trip. all of this, ” Bezos said in a post-flight press conference. ” Seriously, to every Amazon customer and every Amazon employee, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Still, some of the customers he thanks have taken Bezos’ joy of the space as a sign to discontinue Amazon’s hugely popular Prime service, which costs $120 a year.
“Hey guys, I just canceled my Amazon Prime subscription and feel GREAT about it,” one such customer said in a private Facebook group post. “I’m paying too much to shop on a website and/or for a super-rich rocket ride.”
Many others also said they canceled Prime subscriptions in the days following Bezos’ spaceflight, citing reasons related to this trip.
Some people see Bezos’ trip as “the last straw”, they have long considered canceling Prime because they heard bad news about Amazon, such as the treatment of employees at the warehouse, environmental pollution. ,… When Bezos made the flight and “thanked” the customer for paying him, it angered many customers.
