business news in context, analysis with attitude

United Press international reports that Amazon and Wells Fargo have decided to end a partnership that had them offering low interest rate college loans to Amazon Prime customers.

The story says that both companies confirmed the end of the arrangement without explanation; the offer was only initiated two months ago after a reported year in the planning.
KC's View:
Maybe they gave a party and nobody came. Hard to imagine what could've happened to get them to pull the plug after just a couple of months ... but then again, it always has been one of Amazon's central tenets to stop doing stuff that doesn't work, and never to allow short-term problems to become legacy issues.
