I just busted them for attempting to sign me up for monthly Prime membership without my consent, canceled my account. Keep a close eye on your CC statements, I can't believe this is an isolated occurrence.

You sure you didn't press the wrong button, notice during checkout they put that Shilling for Prime in your face.

They didn't do it out of the blue. You clicked on something.

Was it a preselected option during a checkout, like how some places "conveniently" have you with the highest charge shipping as the default?

I was the one who complained about it. I think what they do is automatically have you set for free shipping with prime and if you aren't paying attention you get setup for a 30 day free trial. I just make sure the prime membership option isn't selected before and after I buy something.

Same here, they automatically charged me before the free trial was over. You have to watch them, they are sneaky.

"cancelled my account"

I bet you'll be back and be another happy customer when you are more careful and learn exactly how to handle your account. Amazon didn't get to be a large success by shady business practices. Offers to upgrade, suggestive selling............. Sure, everyone does that. Just take your time, read the details before your final click.

Amazon is the Borg Collective of retail . . .

In the OP's case, it's seems more like fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
The OP has exhibited the good sense not to be fooled twice.

I accidentally did this once myself. Amazon sent an automated email welcoming me to Prime. I immediately canceled. Since the first 30 days were free I did have Prime for that time period. Might be worth taking advantage of this if you wanted a bunch of stuff that would normally have shipping charged. The last thing I bought from Amazon was an electric lawn mower which qualified for free shipping anyway.
