Items sold by Amazon tend to be cheaper, but Amazon's Marketplace allows third party sellers to sell wares and peddle merchandise on the site. They set the price, and the price can fluctuate dramatically. Further, prices can drastically change on a dialy, hourly basis -- even by the minute. It all depends on the supply and who's selling what, where and when.
If you want to track items, prices and more I suggest following Camel Camel Camel.
It's a stupidly named site, but it does price tracking on items to find out when the costs go lower and to maximize your savings (esp. on Amazon). So if somebody has a Surface Pro 2 for $800, and sells out, the price will jump based on the next available seller. But when it goes back down you can be notified of when prices fluctuate in your favor.
TL;DR It's not Amazon setting all the prices, but third party vendors.
Prime Day "early access" deal: Echo Dot (2nd Generation, with Alexa) for 29.99.
Normal price is 49.99. You can often get them on sale for 39.99, but this is the cheapest I've seen them.
Along the same lines watch out for "Subscribe & Save" items. I've had a product triple in price after subscribing. Was $8 when I subscribed and jumped to over $26 in December.
Really shitty of them to not warn you or have a way to set a price threshold.
Hands free dog leash! I like to go on walks with my dog (1-4 miles) and listen to podcasts or take long work calls. With the leash around my waist, my hands are free to reply to a text, pickup poop, whatever I want. Best purchase under $10 of 2018.
Back in 2003 I ordered a LOGITECH MOUSE because it was free after rebate, but to qualify for free shipping I needed a filler item, and the cheapest one I could find was this 89¢ HOSE CLAMP. Every year since, Amazon has been sending me email mentioning that hose clamp, which is now over $4.
I have cast iron pans so I needed a good scrubber. This is just a 6x8" piece of chain mail. Less than $15. I use it for most anything I need to scrub. Plates, baking pans, the mess my cat leaves around his wet food bowl. Anything not covered in Teflon. I love it and it has lasted me four years so far. https://www.amazon.com/Ringer-Original-Stainless-Cleaner-Patented/dp/B00FKBR1ZG
Go to Contact Us, find your order, select "Where's My Stuff?" say "Shipment is Late" then select an appropriate contact option then explain your case. They should be able to help you.
Within the last month, Amazon sent me ads for these things I bought 15 years years ago:
LOGITECH MOUSE (free after rebate, still using it)
HOSE CLAMP (added to order to get free shipping for the mouse, was 79 cents)
I found one as well a few days ago and notified Amazon but haven't heard anything back yet. All 5 stars except for 1 and the 1-star review actually praises it by calling it nice and lightweight. I'm guessing they put that one 1-star review on there to not come off as suspicious. If you read all of the reviews, not 1 of them has proper sentence structure and they all have basically the same syntax. I just refuse to believe that so many of these "reviewers" are unable to write even 1 sentence properly so it comes off as a foreign entity making false reviews to me. Hell even the single 1-star review has the same syntax and bad sentence structure. What's really scary is that they are all verified purchases but I just can't help but doubt that after reading these reviews so it might just be me being skeptical but yea check and decide for yourself.
Looks like the item is incorrectly flagged as shipping in original box:
Here's how the "Ship in Amazon box" button looks like in checkout for the item: http://imgur.com/4HToy80
You would have to go to both browsing history, and purchase history and remove what you don't want shown. I am not sure that the links will work, so as backup, go to your account page and the links at the bottom of the page under personalization.
Because Amazon doesn't want to pay the fees that Paypal charges merchants, or share data about customers/purchases with a potential competitor.
Basically, the same reasons that Paypal doesn't support Amazon Pay.
This is depressing. Counterfeits on Amazon are so ridiculously out of control. It's gotten to the point where it's even worse than eBay. At least with eBay, it's easy to contact a seller and ask for additional photos and check yourself to see if what you're getting is legit. With Amazon you'll just get ignored or the seller will tell you the item is in Amazon's warehouse, even if the item isn't FBA.
I've been reporting obvious counterfeit listings (such as fake collectibles and fake/hacked video game carts) and Amazon does nothing. There's also this gem I found a year ago:
It's a listing for catnip seeds. All the Chinese/Singaporean sellers are sending random seeds like nightshade and wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is incredibly cheap to produce/sell and nightshade is actually toxic and will probably kill a cat if it's eaten by one. It looks like there's one legit seller for the listing (the original seller?) but no one else is legit. When I originally found the listing last year, there were something like 30 different sellers, all from newly launched Chinese accounts with no feedback.
The fact that this listing is still up shows that Amazon doesn't care at all. I actually felt a little sad typing that because I used to love Amazon as a company.
Most items Amazon sells will be shipped in a box or envelope with shipping address and obvious it is from Amazon, but it won't indicate the content.
A few larger items are exceptions and will be shipped in the manufacture's original box, making it obvious what's inside; e.g. if you look at this vacuum cleaner you'll see it says, "This item's packaging will indicate what is inside. To cover it, select Ship in Amazon box on the checkout page. "
Fire phone currently $179 week of July 9th $159 Price Nov to Jan? $99
I was expecting to see "black friday" like prices not necessarily $99 but better than the July 9th price. I can wait till November to pick one up, everything else that they seem to be pushing I can get for the same prices at Walmart or Costco.
Contact Amazon Live Chat customer service
Knowing Amazon and their great customer service, they will let you keep the items.
That is a third party seller, not amazon. Check out this link for the price history on those from amazon, third party new and third party used. http://camelcamelcamel.com/Jabra-C220-Stereo-Earbuds-2-5mm/product/B00083LGI4?context=browse
The SideClick is great if you want to use your FireTV remote to control the TV and maybe one or two peripherals. They're sold at Amazon, Target and BestBuy. A couple of times a year they go on sale for $19.99. I've had one for my bedroom TV for a couple of years and love it.
So I'm curious. Do they have brand control and warehousing to avoid fake stuff? Like if I order Duracell batteries or Dremel bit sets do they have processes in place so that I'm getting products from those manufactures and brands? Or is it coming from a third party seller? Or is a third party dumping stock from who knows where into their inventory?
I see this: https://jet.com/help-center/retail-network So they may have the same problem as amazon?
If that is the case then Prime costs even more than I'm suggesting - Amazon pays almost $3b per quarter in shipping costs and gets about $1.5b per quarter in shipping fees (including prime revenue).
Amazon started this bullshit with "prime 2 day SHIPPING" instead of 2 day delievery, they know damn well people think that means they'll get their crap in 2 days, this entire belief is why people even bother with paying for prime, certainly isn't their movie "selection!" Anyway, It's actually really starting to piss me off the more I think about it. I just did a check on two items, THIS umbrella and THESE craft hearts
When checking out both have the option for PRIME 2-day shipping, but for the umbrella that means Tuesday, February 14, for the craft hearts it too says the same prime delivery option of FREE 2 day delivery, but it lists a date of Saturday, February 11.
I especially like the 1 day delivery for the umbrella, that's Monday, February 13, how the hell would anyone consider that "1 day delivery?"
anyway, amazon's delivery estimates have become a joke, they used to be great years ago and 2 day actually meant 2 day, which is why I, like so many others have opted for prime. Now that they have us they've decided they don't have to hire as many people anymore and they'll still keep the vast majority of their prime members with their auto enroll feature, so stuff that used to take two or less days now takes 5, 6, 10 days. We aren't the only ones who've noticed, look it up.
I did a google search for "sugar free red bull 24 pack" and looked at the amazon hits. Found this one there https://www.amazon.com/Red-Bull-Sugarfree-Energy-Drink/dp/B000MTM0WK for $35.99.... I often do google searches for cheapest prices.
I just searched on Amazon and I found the product and price point as you described. Olympian LED, the seller who has it at $73 with Prime eligible shipping, Fulfilled (Shipped, not sold) by Amazon, is hiking the price (because they are the seller) NOT Amazon.
Here is the listing, fellow redditors feel free to chime in: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MY6AHDC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_QlW9AbTFP4J9Q
I think that spammers or scammers likely used that VPN and got the IP addresses banned.
ExpressVPN works for me! I love ExpressVPN. Scammers won't touch it since they cooperate with law enforcement, so it's not really banned anywhere. It's not a new or too obscure VPN either.
Yes, they’re separate because they’re dealing with different kinds of customers. I don’t know the number for AWS because I don’t have an account, but here’s the link for the AWS contact page.
Amazon does have a way of paying it forward when you do the right thing because every one of your interactions is stored in the CS system and they can always look up "how good of a customer you are" when you're in a pinch, when you need a price match, when you need a free upgrade to next day shipping, when they're testing out new trial products.
Just as well, if the next high value package you get is legitimately lost, they are more likely to flag your account for fraud. Trust me when I say this, honesty goes a long way.
I'd suggest chatting with CS by going here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/contact-us/general-questions.html?skip=true
Maybe they'll even let you keep it!
This happened to me a few days ago. Contacted support nothing. Sent an email to their review appeals email. No response. Sent an email to [email protected] explaining why I thought I was banned and asking that I be unbanned because I wasn't doing anything wrong(bought smart plugs from amazon via slickdeals.net using a promo code they had on there which apparently people are saying may of been flagged as a review promo code thing). Nothing from them either. So guess my 2009+all my hard work of reviews is washed..
Man, it isn't even $2.
Tax doesn't show up in the cart, you have to go to the checkout page to really see it.
Florida state sales tax is 6%. That isn't any local taxes.
That makes it $33.91. Based on todays price ($39.99) minus 20%. But remember, no local taxes.
But depending on where exactly you are county can jump it up to 7.5%.
Which is $34.39, based on todays price ($39.99) minus 20%.
The 3 cents you save are because it briefly dropped to $39.96 (http://camelcamelcamel.com/Monster-Hunter-Generations-Nintendo-3DS-Standard/product/B01CJI62WA). But that isn't really enough to change the above numbers by more than a couple pennies.
I am kinda working with some assumptions here because you aren't posting hard numbers, and I don't know your exact tax rate.
But it is looking like it would be around $34 (probably a little over) with tax give or take, and you only say around $35 without exactly how much you were charged, so probably a dollar off. Maybe. Because a little over $34 is around $35.
And I have pre-ordered thousands worth of games from Amazon and never had a pricing error. It has always been at most the price at checkout, and usually a little less.
Not affiliated with them in any way, but I saw them posted on some other Reddit threads. I'd imagine they work off of affiliate links, as an fyi.
$133.09 is the current price for the book. I assume the price was $201.25 when you rented it. The "buyout" price of $201.25 should be on your original order invoice and also available here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/rental/your-account
If not, contact customer service and they should be able to explain or refund the difference.
I believe you because I've read before that FBA seller can't access this information, but I'm convinced they have found some vulnerability in the system that lets them retrieve it.
This email address that received those messags was created at my own domain on the day the order was placed. It doesn't receive spam from any other source and has only been used for that single order. It's also not listed on https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and similar sitse. I received one email from the seller via Amazon's messaging system thanking me for the order and asking me to post a review. I did not respond to it. One month later, the incentivised review spam began to arrive. I don't know how they are getting the info but something is definitely very off here.
No, thats not how these promotions with third parties work. Amazon foots the bill for these promotions. It's impossible to go to every single service provider and ask them for permission for this.
Same deal with eBay flash sale coupons (like the 15 of 75 they often run). Those discounts dont come out of the individual sellers payments. ebay foots the bill.
I'm guessing a big reason these were cancelled was because of a mistake that led to the services being 80% off instead of 40%: https://slickdeals.net/f/10348120
It means that you have used the email address and password you use on Amazon with another website, and that that other website has been hacked and your login details have been posted online somewhere.
Check your email address here to find out if your login details have been a part of any recent major hacks https://haveibeenpwned.com
EDIT: Also, it could be a scam, but it might not be. When you change your password, don't follow any links in the email. Go direct to Amazon.de and change it there.
Well... the email specifically said, its not related to an Amazon leak. Lots of major websites/companies will follow the "big leaks" that happen, and if they see matching email addresses to their databases, they will contact people about it. Check your email here and see if you are a part of any of the recent breaches.
I can't believe I waited for Prime Day to buy the Samsung Evo SD card and it's listed at $109, which is $10 higher than it was 10 days ago.
This reminds me of the Samsung OEM headphones I bought on Amazon. Absolutely bullshit fake headphones with a Samsung counterfeit logo. Here they are and they're still up for months fulfilled BY AMAZON, in spite of many complaints that they're counterfeit.
>I noticed an item close to $70 is being G sold on the official website for $43.99

>I bought this for my dad for Christmas. Found out the pricing error. Bought it from the official website and got my refund from Amazon. Why does Amazon allow this?
It's not a pricing error, that's how retail works. Buy, then sell for more. That's how Amazon makes money.
My neighbor recently bought this:
And the negative terminal was loose so he returned it. Amazon required him to pay return shipping which was IIRC over $40. Good luck getting credit for the return shipping.

Well I'm thrilled. Been saving for a Yamaha P71 and it's $121 off.
Then click on see more plans and choose the monthly one
Check a random item on Amazon.de. It says "EUR 12,90" and below that "Alle Preisangaben inkl. USt" which means that the price includes VAT (19%). If you're shipping this to the United States, then the VAT will be removed: 12.90/1.19 = €10.84. So you will pay €10.84 (plus shipping) if you send it to an address outside the European Union.
If you are logged in when viewing the item page, then prices might not always be shown including German VAT. The correct price (without VAT if you use a delivery address in the United States) will be shown at the final confirmation screen, so you'll know what you pay when you place your order.
Estimated import fees from United States customs, if any, will be shown as "import fees deposit," provided that you select an "AmazonGlobal" shipping method. If the estimate turns out to be too low, then Amazon will pay the rest. If the estimate turns out to be too high, then you will be given a refund a few months after the item was sent. For example, on Friday (24 November), I got a notification from Amazon.co.jp that I will be given a refund of ¥109 (about $1, so almost nothing) for an order sent on 5 October (sent from Japan to Europe).
As long as you choose an "AmazonGlobal" shipping method, you will not pay more in total than whatever amount Amazon displays at the final confirmation screen.
> No idea, but my guess is that it has nothing to do with Amazon choosing the superior product, but whatever will make more money for them.
I'm all aboard the hail corporate train usually, but for Amazon's choice it seems to be a balance of solid reviews and low price to the reviews to be honest, for instance I highly doubt Amazon is making a killing on this $284 4k monitor that has pretty much universally high reviews on every reviewing website vs other 4k monitors, and this is "Amazon's Choice" when searching just "4k Monitor"
For example, I wanted to purchase a Microplane Zester/Grater and some of the reviews suggest that some of the products received were fakes/knockoffs, even though purchased directly from amazon and not from a shady reseller. Similar cases for other kitchen/household products.
I always thought amazon would check the products in their warehouses since they are working with companies/suppliers directly, but it seems that is not always the case.
I wish Amazon would get over itself and just sell the stuff. Quit making them put up shitty listings.
This must hold up your dress padded as to not damage the material.
Everyone is looking at that Toshiba TV for $290 but I've got my eyes on this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MTGM5I9/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
Not sure if it goes on sale regularly or something but it seems like a good deal to me. Only $90 more than the Toshiba and you get 55 inches vs 50. 120hz vs 60hz and I prefer Roku over Amazon Fire personally.
I don't see why it would be fake. Looking at the UK version which I think is this, it states, like the German version, that the manufacturer is The North Face, and probably Amazon verify their supply chains so that fakes of big names don't get through. But I might be wrong!
A reason why Amazon can undercut other sellers' prices is they don't pay the same amount of tax.
Anything not a main brand I click share, then send to that.
Also install camel camel camel for price history. Same deal, just share from Amazon app to that one.
Saves you money and headaches
I think it all depends on the budget you want to spend. Once you figure out the budget then you can look for the best product in that price range.
This is an expired deal but you can get a general sense of price range.
Look any hotels that have a valet and/or bellman service. I work at an Omni Hotel in Corpus Christi, TX- a small city. I make pretty decent tips. Since you're in Seattle which I'm sure gets plenty of tourists, you'd make better tips than I do.
Edit: job posting http://www.indeed.com/m/viewjob?jk=1ebd747893b0e59a&from=serp
Easy... contact Amazon and explain the situation. It's highly likely that they will give you your money back and suspend/fine the seller for the cost of the item.
Out of interest, why do you want to keep the gift card balance?
If your concern is to keep the gift card balance as it is for whatever reason, you could buy a gift card covering the cost of the book, redeem that and buy the book.
Edit: actually, it seems you can just reload the balance via here which saves you the whole redeeming malarky.
>And if not, is Jeff Bezos's email? Does he really take and read email from all the customers who feel like emailing him?
Yes, and yes. I'm sure he has somebody filtering the emails or reading them for him. https://www.quora.com/Whats-it-like-to-receive-a-question-mark-e-mail-from-Jeff-Bezos-at-Amazon-Inc
Edit: added the link
Yes. About 55% of Redditors come from the US, and every other country is a small fraction. The UK comes in second at 8%. So, chances are, when someone talks about something generically in English, they're talking about the US.
In the second scenario, what matters is the delivery date Amazon told you at the time you ordered.
In my area, Saturday delivery costs extra. So if I order anything late Wednesday or on Thursday, it won't arrive until Monday.
On Amazon's tracking page, copy the tracking number and paste it into Google, then look at the shipper's real tracking page. It contains more information than Amazon's tracking page.
You'll see the shipper's expected delivery date, which is the date driving how fast the shipper gets the package to you. If the shipper was under the impression, from the get-go, that your package was supposed to arrive 5 days later, then that sounds like Amazon didn't ship the package for 2-day delivery. However, I suspect you'll really see that the shipper is the one was screwed up.
Complain using the contact form, noting that you paid for 2-day delivery and it arrived 5 days later. You'll likely get a $10 credit or a 1-month extension of your Prime subscription. Complain too often and Amazon might drop you (ban you) as a customer, although I don't know how much of a problem customer you need to be before that happens.
I haven't seen it be $50--see some links that indicate a bonus like that was going on in 2012, but lately it's just been $30.
Amazon does not pay them and also refund you. It will just refund and close the sellers account.
THe last year has seen a huge boom in these 3rd party sellers attempting to rip people off. Amazon has not said shit about it in the public yet. But many sites are posting warnings such as http://camelcamelcamel.com/blog/a-holiday-safety-tip-about-scams
I'm not seeing an issue. Though it is possible that they've lost data on some SKUs. For example this one for the Apple iPad Air MD785LL/A is missing data between September & July. So it's plausible that could have happened again.
>Dos or Don'ts?
Don't buy anything you're not prepared to return, because you might need to.
For this reason, I bought my TV from Costco... 90-day easy return and the manufacturer's warranty is extended to 2 years. I doubt you need tech support for a TV, but their concierge service is also included where you troubleshoot by phone with a Costco rep based in North America before being connected to the manufacturer's tech support, and the Costco rep listens to the call (or at least did in my case, then asked me if I was satisfied afterward).
If you have a Costco warehouse in your area, but no membership, you could buy from the Costco website and still return the TV to the warehouse if needed.
This article has updated information: Amazon is still advertising on Breitbart and is aware of the issue. https://thenextweb.com/insider/2017/08/22/amazon-isnt-one-of-the-2575-companies-to-pull-ads-from-breitbart/
You shouldn't be buying postage at the post office in the first place. Buy it through Amazon itself, PayPal, or stamps.com/Endicia. Postage is cheaper, tracking on first-class mail is free, and tracking on media mail is $0.20.
Did you try giving yourself the gift of Prime from another account?
>The one-year gift membership does not automatically renew.
My apologies, it appears they've changed the functionality to allow you to set up a prompt to cancel three days before it's up. You can do that here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/primecentral/editMembership/ref=pc_em
Go ahead and have Amazon call you.
Email is the toughest medium for complex customer service problems. This way they won't hang up until you tell them to.
I recommend Lightshot for screen capture : https://app.prntscr.com/en/index.html
It's a very useful software to improve your efficiency. You can just bind the key you want (Ex: screen capture), select the area you desire, add some basic effect and
1) Upload on the internet with the cloud icon to share it really fast on the web.
2) Ctrl-C it (or save it with the drive icon) and paste in many software with a Ctrl-V.
hrm i am on the trial and it is giving my trouble trying to register for this, im going to see if i cancel and renew if this works
Edit it works for roku too: https://www.sling.com/devices/roku
Actually I meant OSMC, I run OSMC on my pi 24x7.
OSMC with add-ons like Genesis/Phoenix will give you pretty much all the content you want to see albeit from questionable sources. So it's your wish, but it only streams and if you're behind a VPN you'd be fine from getting caught.
Also, OSMC is pretty much like a top layer on a minimal linux distro and it runs just fine standalone, no server-client relationship here.
I do run a plex server on my PC and watch stuff either using the default smart TV interface (some TVs support that) or using Chromecast Plex app (before my CC broke). Works fine both ways.
The reason I was asking about Fire stick was I just wanted to know why people prefer it over Chromecast, turns out because of Prime/Netflix and other app integration which doesn't interest me as much.
You can read about and get OSMC here.
Okay for those wondering, it was Amazon prime video subscription. If you ever get into the same situation, contact them here : https://www.primevideo.com/help/contact-us
And explain what happened. They refunded my first charge even though it was more than a month ago.
I don't think you're able to, I can see a lot of folks setting it up, forgetting about it, then getting PO'd when the money disappears from their account. Personally I use the Keepa extension, you can ask them to email you when the price of an item drops below a certain point - https://keepa.com/
That is going to be quite the spike in the price watch...
They change the price for a million reasons.
But none of that matters if you track prices using http://camelcamelcamel.com/
Takes all the guess work out. I want it for X price. Item hits X price, they send you an email, and you buy it. Also since Amazon Price Matches themselves for 7 days, always track items after you buy it and you don't have to worry about getting screwed.
When I wanted to purchase a massage gun, they stated that the lightning price is $55.25 USD, which according to them is 57% off the list price of $129.99 USD. However, I see that the regular price is $69.99 USD, so I’m not saving that much. I’m baffled by the fact that I can’t find anyone talking about this anywhere. Can somebody please explain why is it displayed the way it is. Is there any other reason beside attracting gullible buyers?
Here is a link to the product.

This is a rant. I’m just venting and opening up a discussion among other redditors who may share the same sentiment and are potentially aware of the reasoning behind certain marketing tactics and help to enlighten me on that.
Why is a religious CD marked as Explicit? Does a neckbeard Redditor work for Amazon?
Edit: Look at the MP3 version.
It may help to filter items sold by Amazon only, even though it will limit the selection.
There is e.g. this laptop, which is similar or better than the one you posted, though £200 more expensive, but it ships internationally and includes customs fees (at least to some countries, check for Import Fees Deposit in checkout): https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-G752VY-T7048T-Notebook-i7-6700HQ-Touchpad/dp/B015OG3SLC/
Amazon doesn't give a shit. I made a similar post here before. Go look at the Top Seller for Yeti Tumblers. It's oddly half price of a legit one and is shipping from China. They are fake. All the "top reviews" say they are fake, having pics explaining why, etc.
I bought one as a one click buy on mobile and didn't do my research. Got it, and it was a knockoff. All Amazon did was say "lol, just keep it" and refund my money. I've kind of lost some faith in Amazon. Look up any popular movie, tv show, video game, and their are sellers with all kinds of unlicensed bootleg crap. It's beginning to look like Ebay.
It'd be even more useful if you had an option to filter to only the reviews about the specific version of the product you're interested in. For instance, the infamous Seagate 3TB ST3000DM001 HDD had a dismally high rate of failure. While the other size options (1TB, 2TB, etc.) weren't phenomenal either, they were at least not nearly as bad as the 3TB version. But the product page lumps them all together. The overall rating is an average of all the ratings for all size options. While looking at the reviews can lead you to discovering that the 3TB version received the most flak, it'd be much better if Amazon clearly separated out the reviews for each version if they recognized that a subset of the versions received a disproportionate amount of negative reviews.
Oculus Roomscale Bundle https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072F64645/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_JOJzzbQ4PF4SB
In my original post roomscale was two words, my bad.
Also, Amazon should really not be selling bundles if canceling an order is too complex for them to do.
Beware : I've bought 3 HDMI switches in as many weeks. All lasted 1-4 days before I had to return them. Only good thing from this experience is that even though I was refunded via Amazon Prime, one Chinese vendor is still sending me a free one. Although I suspect it will last as long as the others lol.
The one linked below has the accommodating vendor.
The next issue, which is out today (Japanese time), is listed as out of stock. If your transaction doesn't go through, then I believe that you get a few days to "fix" your transaction problem.
In the future, consider including a pre-order which isn't out for a couple of weeks if you don't have enough money. Amazon decided to postpone sending out the latest issue of Hana to Yume to me for ten days because I also pre-ordered another item. Amazon eventually sent out the magazine separately anyway, but the transaction was postponed for a while due to the pre-order.
Where exactly, can you screenshot it?
Go to: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y66K3XD/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
And show me the amazon packaging on this specific item from amazon
It's "correct" and "as advertised" but there's more and more items that "aren't eligible" for prime shipping even though they're fulfilled by Amazon.
The other week I ordered packing tape from ZYX private label company, fulfilled by Amazon, not eligible for Prime 2 Day shipping because who knows why. Between "add on" items, "Prime Pantry" exclusives, items that "aren't eligible" and Ontrac (CA only) and AMZL (everywhere) Amazon isn't nearly as good as it once was. Now it's "oh, I can't get that on Walmart, Target, Macy's etc?" I guess I'll check Amazon.
Amazon is even bumping items over MSRP when they show up now.
>Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. Gift-wrap available.
Be aware of the seller, and buy only from sellers who provide this info up front or who will provide images to you of the actual item for sale (vs. stock images). Many sellers also use phrases like "manufacturer-sealed" to assure authenticity and condition.
For example, for the seller "Amazon.com", these messages will be displayed when applicable: >Note: This product is manufactured on demand when ordered from Amazon.com.
>When sold by Amazon.com, this product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media.
As shown here:
Also, if you buy something that is misrepresented by any 3rd-party seller on Amazon, you can contact the seller and ask to return the item for a refund, and file an A-Z claim if they refuse. If the applicable listing was FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon), I think you can simply return it for a full refund under reason "not as described", no questions asked (I'm a Prime Member but I don't think that is a factor).
another chinese junk seller abusing the review system
a guy sells usb cable sets, racks up hundreds of 4 star reviews
then changes the item listing to iphone adapters for earphones.
so not only are the reviews bogus, but so is the price history.
this fuck-you shit has got to stop,
and amazon only enables them as
there is no way to report this fraud.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M298WF7/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 I ordered that Google Pixel XL smartphone from Amazon. It's sold as "certified refurbished" and ships from and sold by Amazon.com. The description says "shows limited or no wear, and includes all original accessories plus a 90-day warranty" I've asked a few Amazon reps and got nowhere. (via online chat and on the phone) I just want to know who will handle the warranty if it goes bad between day 31 and 90? (if it's between day 1 and 30, I assume I can just return any defective phone?) It seems like no two reps at Amazon can have the same answer... :(
I just bought Bluetooth dongle on Amazon that had 4.5-star rating with more than 4,000 reviews. I got a counterfeit product, Amazon gave me a full refund (incl. return shipping) and today the product has just over 300 reviews and 3.2 rating.
It seems that Amazon is at least doing something.
I have a Navibe Bluetooth GPS ~~and was able to find an app that works with it~~ Update: I checked again, and Google Maps and Waze are both unable to read the GPS data. The EFB software below still works fine with it, though.
I'm also a road warrior and like to sniff airplanes. I run the Avare Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) on my phone and my HD8. I use the GPS built into my phone to follow my own flight in the air, but on the ground I feed Avare on my HD8 with r/stratux running on an r/raspberrypi in my laptop bag. That lets me see most of the air traffic coming and going from the airport and aeronautical weather data on my tablet while I'm at or near the airport. Sure, I have top-tier accounts on Flight Aware and FlightRadar24, but what's the fun in that? :) I want to look at it the same way they see it in the cockpit, which is entirely different from the way the big-name sites show it to you. It's a super cheap way to get a behind-the-scenes look at airport operations.
I have the app for IBM's publishing arm (IBM Redbooks) installed. I also have a subscription to O'Reilly Safari, so I have that installed, too. After that, I have Kindle, Play Books, and Barnes & Noble Nook installed, giving me access to hundreds of thousands (millions?) of book titles.
Tons. Of. Books. And FAA manuals that I've downloaded.
Edit: Since I turned it on. Also Slack, Trello, DirecTV Now, Kodi, Plex. LiveATC to listen to the air traffic that I'm watching flying and taxiing around on the screen. I used to have the Congress app installed from the Sunlight Foundation back when I was naive. Finally, Google Play Music, Amazon Music, TuneIn, and Broadcastify for some more audio apps. I spend >40 weeks a year in airports and hotels. I need to have a bunch of entertainment options with me. Just no video games. Not even card games.
I've ordered headphones last month. On November 7th, seeing as the product was still
Not yet shipped, I've contacted the seller. They told me, that they didn't even get the order, and I should contact amazon. On the other hand, amazon didn't tell me anything meaningful and suggested deleting the order and making a new one. Here we are on November 11th, the new order is once again
Not yet shipped, without a delivery estimate. Is there anything I can do about it?
Is Amazon auto parts fitment reliable at all?
I searched for an exact manufacturer part number; the part number specifically stated by the manufacturer to be the fitment for my car.
Amazon US tells me it fits an '02 Honda Civic SiR hatch
Amazon Canada tells me it does <strong>not</strong>.
This is exact same part. Which is it?? Make up your dang mind, Amazon.

Amazon Prime day totally makes it worthwhile!
Wait, did I say that out loud?
Ah, yes I did. If you could have heard me say it, you would have heard the sarcasm dripping in my voice.
Prime reading unlimited, Prime music upgraded version are both wonderful. Prime video is ok, few decent things on there. Rarely use it due to lack of solid content.
Subscribe and save if great for manipulating savings. For example, when I was buying soylent bottles (using powder so no benefit) I'd setup a sub and save and buy 10 boxes. Then add four other items that qualify... Beef bouillon for a buck, Carmel corn bag, cheap and tasty, etc... Saves 15% on the boxes, plus 5% from Amazon card...
No rush shipping digital dollar... I often separate my orders. Say I'm buying three things. Add one to cart, checkout, no rush shipping, dollar towards ebook or movie rental on Prime app. Repeat for next two... Free money to offset membership.
Then there are legit lightning deals for crap you'd buy at a legit savings.
If you use it properly it's free. Just remember to download https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fakespot.fakespot ... Remember to click share in Amazon app, then share to fake spot.
Also download camel camel camel, share in app to camel for price history. See if it is a good deal...
I brought HD 8 for my personal use. It is pretty powerful device for the price.
The Amazon apps are pretty limited. So I installed Google Play Store in it to install the Android apps I want. Instructions here .
Later, I see Amazon Alexa Showmode device and brought for the tablet. Now I'm using this to read news in the morning with Alexa and also as a weather/table clock.
When I want to watch YouTube or play Android game, I will take out from the dock and use as an Android tablet.
I don't see any Android device for this price with a decent CPU and RAM.
These work very well for single room cooling in hot dry climates.

I literally just bought this in King size with my shiny new Prime membership:
Is there any difference? I don't mind paying a premium for better quality. So far in what I've researched, they seem identical. One just has more reviews with a 1 star advantage as well. I still have time to cancel.
I bought this one:
It's worked out well. No complaints. From what I remember, its supposed to be unrolled and let "sit" for 24 or 48 hours. There's also a weird smell that comes with it but it goes away eventually. It's a pretty legit purchase.
Amazon Canada is usually really bad with pre-orders. I'll also add that the time you made your order was already too late for them to effectively send you the item on time and I guess that this item is not massively distributed so the distribution company has limited quantities and already shipped them to other vendors and Amazon would already have shipped their two copies (for example) to the other customers who made their pre-orders before. It doesn't mean it's alright, I'm also always baffled by this because I'm on the impression that Amazon Canada has a great leverage with distributors but it seems that no.
I'm only talking from experience. I know, it sucks and you should write to them and express your dissatisfaction. On the other side though, the estimated shipping date doesn't mean you would receive your order in that time, you could receive yours before. Still, I also think that Amazon is not very good at giving you a precise picture over this.
PS. The item is in stock at Amazon.com and is less expensive. You should order it from there.
If you look at the app on the play store web page, just to the right of the app icon, it should say whether or not it is compatible with your device.
