Recap: Amazon Fresh/Prime Pantry, MoviePass Tracking, Lottery Hacking
- Amazon Prime Pantry is shifting to a $5 monthly subscription by CNBC. Previously it was $6 per box, so it looks like Amazon want to try and lock you into using it more often with a monthly subscription fee. If you don’t want the monthly fee it will jump up to $8 per box ordered.
- MoviePass CEO proudly says the app tracks your location before and after movies by TechCrunch. It’s concerning when companies are proudly admitting to this sort of thing. I guess the value proposition of MoviePass will be too big for most people to care, but it’s not something I personally want companies to have access to unless needed.
- Reader Emily was offering a free trial of Amazon Fresh for 90 days when asking Alexa about grocery items. This was available even though she has received multiple free trials previously.
