    Amazon Prime sells a certain drink in 24 packs at $33 (free shipping). The next best price is $45 for non Prime members is from a third party seller I believe (not including shipping). So, I reviewed the product, stating that I thought this was an unfair business practice, and they rejected it.

    It's an unfair business practice to sell things cheaper than other people sell them?

    They probably rejected it because you are reviewing the company or the product and sometimes people's review of the company crosses over and vica versa and gets rejected. But yeah, they control the true rating and experience sharing by censoring certain unpleasant experiences or people warning of gouging etc.

    Your review wasn’t really a review of the drink. Your review was of Amazon’s business practice. The quality of the drink itself should not depend on the business practice.

    Well, where should you leave a review of Amazon’s business practice? IDK

    Probably can do that in the Amazon discussion forums if they still have them.

    If they're doing it for one segment of consumers and not the other, then I question the legality.

    The price is reviewable. So, no to that.

    If you had simply said the product cost too much, perhaps they would have accepted the review, but you said the Business Practice was unfair.

    I actually did not say that. I questioned the legality, which is different.

    Meh....I bought some heavy leather gloves to be used for Dutch oven cooking and they sucked.
    Recommended you buy some welding gloves instead and they nixed my review.
    So I stopped reviewing items from Amazon.
    Now I research the products available on Amazon from other sources before I buy.
