I love clueless customer service reps! Can't Post

Following up on the saga of trying to get Amazon.com to email the sneak peek codes. The story so far was that Amazon.uk apparently did mail codes with pre-orders, but Amazon.com did not. I emailed Amazon.com last week, right after they emailed to say my order was shipped (it should arrive later this week), and asked about the possibility of having the code emailed, and pointing out that it was a time-sensitive issue (i.e., I needed it by yesterday). Last night, they emailed to let me know they were still working on it with all due diligence. I replied (politely, I add!) and said there was no point now, as the live event was over, and they should just cancel my enquiry. This morning, I get another email from them, as follows:



I've reviewed our previous correspondence with you, and I'm very sorry about the incorrect information you received.

I've confirmed that your order didn't meet all of the qualifications for receiving this promotional offer. Specifically, the codes doesn't work outside the U.S.. [But it does, you clueless person!]

To compensate for any inconvenience, I've made an exception to our standard procedure.

I've requested a refund for $32.97, which includes the cost of the item, its associated shipping costs, and the import fee deposit (if any). This refund will go through within the next 3-5 business days and will appear as a credit on your billing statement.

The refund will be issued in your local currency and calculated at the same rate used when you placed the order.

Because the cost of returning this item would be prohibitively expensive, there's no need to return it when it arrives. You're welcome to keep, donate or dispose of the item--whichever option is most appropriate and convenient for you.

I hope this solution works for you. We look forward to seeing you again soon.


ROFL! I get the whole thing for free!
