Amazon, you disappoint.

No possible way to merge one persons multiple Amazon accounts to get all ones AutoRip'ed crap, ebooks or digital content combined under one login.

How sad.

I have an account with Amazon and so does my wife. We share the "prime" feature and have 2 kindle tablets also, one for her and one for my son.
I think Amazon is great.

Why would one person have multiple accounts?

All it takes to get another free trial of Amazon Prime is to register with a new email address.

What disappoints me is the limited amount of items that can view prime movies.

This non transferability is a major reason I won't buy digital only content. Simple example; when I pass away, anything I bought can't get moved to anybody else's account.

Did you eat paint chips as a child or live under power lines? I stated it disappoints me is the limited amount of items that can view prime movies. Prime is a paid service so therefore I already have.

Limited number of compatible devices to access prime content. He must be a Linux nerd or something.

Why would they put it on your non kindle tablet? They want you to buy their tablet.


Works great on all our stuff. Our 70" Visio even has an amazon instant video button on the remote,, that we have linked to our prime account.

As someone else said, is it possible for prime membership to be applied to both mine and my wife's accounts?

The primary prime member can add up to 3 other accounts, but those accounts cannot access prime instant streaming. This is the one thing I really dislike, besides the lack of an android app. I have to use my wife's login for streaming, but that also means I have full access to her account and history. That is mostly fine - we have no secrets - but we have a friend that left Amazon logged in so her kids could stream, then later found her youngest loaded a bunch of DVDs and such into the shopping cart. Its not great around Christmas time either, if you want to keep gifts secret. We use roku players, and simply don't let the kids steam on the computers.
