I’m hoping it’s an isolated incident, but I’m writing a blog about it anyway.
Amazon tried to charge me postage on a free postage item
So, I’ve been a member of Amazon since 2007. Over 11 years on the current email address.
I’m used to the way they do business, as I also work as a ‘Flex’ driver.
I know that you don’t get anything for not calling these people out. That’s what I’m doing.
Buying a postage free item
It may only be in a small way. It may only be an isolated incident, but yesterday, Amazon tried to charge me postage on a ‘postage free’ item.
£1.99 postage to be exact.
Here’s the item.
When I get to check-out. I can see that they’re trying to add the postage, so I go back and check the ‘Delivery Details’, or terms and conditions.
Any item with “FREE Delivery” messaging on the product detail page that is dispatched by Amazon is eligible and contributes to your free delivery order minimum. Items sold and fulfilled by Marketplace Sellers do not contribute to your free delivery order minimum.Delivery Details
Despite this having ‘Free delivery’ messaging on the product, it is not eligible according to Amazon’s own rules.
Rang support agent
I rang them and told them that they had displayed the item wrongly. From the conversation I had with the support agent, I got the impression that this wasn’t a big thing to them.
Amazon counts on people’s ignorance and laziness to make tax free profits.
Heads up if you get this. Take a screenshot. Ring them up and tell them the item has been mis-labelled. They are obliged to give you the postage back as they are mis-labelling and mis-selling the product.
Over the course of the last few weeks, I’ve been planning to upgrade the electrics of Bonnie Lady narrowboat. One of the first jobs has been to add to the battery bank Battery Bank Is a collection of batteries which feed the boat and all the appliances on it. Currently, we have 2 AGM 120ah […]
Or thereabouts… This is my new home. It’s perhaps 800m from the car. A little way. Flore Bypass There is a meadow opposite and some constructions where they are building the new road connecting the A45 to the M1, bypassing Flore, which it currently runs right through… The A45 is a noisy, busy road. They […]
Not actually climbing into the water-tank this time. Just on the outside, painting the lid. It’s been one of those jobs waiting to be done but never got round to it. The weather has cleared up for the past few days, so I removed it and got some paint on it. This is when I […]
Now just on the outskirts of Weedon. Weedon Bec I think they call this place. It’s all very peaceful apart from some horrible yapping dogs which belong to the permanent moorers pictured on the left and side of this photograph. They’re on the other side of the canal, or I might be tempted to give […]
Pig’s hill. Don’t see many pigs around, certainly not seen any on the towpath…. Stowehill Has a nice view down to Flore, the opposing village, separated by the River Nene, just in it’s infancy here. Took some images out across the valley. I scouted the area, as I always scout the area before a move. […]
Quite a long trek. Mooring between Bugbrooke and Gayton There isn’t really any mooring in Bugbrooke, unless you want to stop outside the pub. The rest of the journey is along ‘reclaimed bank’. This is where the towpath has been eroded and re-supplemented with new soil and sandbags, then re-seeded and allowed to grow. The […]
Yes. Meadows. These ones with sheep, horses and the odd duck and goose thrown in. In the middle of no-where basically. I’ve been here since Sunday, but I had to work on Sunday due to the weather being so abysmal during the week. I only managed to get out on that one day. Today it […]
**Update March/April 2018 Changed the dates and included some more up-to-date references for the banker deaths. New deaths added. **Update October 2017 There was a number of deaths in 2017, most of them I picked up second hand. As I’ve said before, I try to stick to the main players. I’ve added the deaths for […]
Not much of a move, but I’m on a different canal now. Blisworth Arm. Leads to the River Nene which has been non-navigable for the last few weeks. I believe it’s calming down now, and the boats are starting to come past me again. Blisworth Arm It’s very quite here. The bird sing a lot. […]
