At the very least they misrepresented their shipping policy to me (again).
I’ll have a very long rant about this whole thing this weekend – but basically, I paid next day shipping for a Wii, and a bunch of games and accessories. All I’ll get tomorrow is the games and accessories. It would take at least another week to get the console.
I’ll refuse the shipment tomorrow – even though the Amazon rep told me that “You can’t refuse the delivery” Bullshit! I can and I will. If I don’t take possession of the property, then I never received it. And can’t be billed for it. I’ve already filed a dispute about this with my bank card company. I’ll win.
I also canceled two other orders – for books for my daughter. I’m done with Amazon. Hello again, Barnes and Noble!
I would write the entire post now – but I don’t think the story is over yet – Amazon has some poor third party company on the string to deliver me a Wii that I no longer want (from Amazon). Amazon says there is no way to cancel that order (uhh – if it won’t ship for 5-7 days, why the hell can’t it be canceled?) And the Amazon rep threatened dire consequences if I refused the order – telling me again that I could NOT refuse the package. Right.
The lady on the phone never got upset, even though I was. She had heard this all before, I am sure. It’s the typical bait and switch shipping rip-offs that I have experienced with Amazon before. When I asked he if she had heard similar complaints she was very, very quiet. But she DID tell me that if I would have “scrolled down” (and read the small print…) – I didn’t let her finish.
I know – “what the large print giveth, the small print taketh away”. But not from me. Not today. And never again by Amazon.
Simple enough – I ordered a Wii, and some other crap. Amazon told me that for about $30 dollars I could have it in two days. I agreed. They lied.
