I agree that you have to be very careful when you are selecting the shipping options so that you aren't inadvertently joining Prime. This happened to me once, and I discovered it at the payment screen, so I backed up two screens to the point before I started to check out, and did it again correctly.

I also agree that this tactic stinks. This sort of thing seems to be SOP for many online retailers, even if it's only to get you to sign up for their emails.

Note to online retailers: I pay attention to these things, and I spend my money as much as possible on sites that treat me with respect and don't try to trick me.
