Can you believe Amazon did this!

I find it ridiculous that Amazon has now made Birchwood Casey 9mm cleaning patches an exclusive item for Amazon Prime members. If you're not a prime member, you can't buy this item

I understand the benefits of the membership, but I don't want to join. I am so tired of these retailers coming up with gimmicks. When will retailers understand that good customer service, fair prices, and product availability is what sells.

The Firing Line or bust!

They are reserved at that PRICE...for prime members.

I went over there and put them in a cart without prime and it went right through...but it was a little more expensive and I would have had to pay shipping.

there are other sellers on Amazon that offer the same product, just at a slightly higher price. The seller at the bottom right has it listed for $10.17 with free shipping. That seems fair to me.

I guess I got tired of spending on cleaning patches. Went to the fabric Dept and bought a few yards of white flannel.
Spend your free time or have kids, grand kids cut patches for you.

As much as my wife spends shopping on Amazon, Prime is worth it in my household. What I hate is seeing something small and lightweight that has shipping costs exceeding the price of the item, especially when they could just put it in a padded envelope.
