For packages delivered via fedex smartpost (LATE, btw, not meeting the 2-day prime guarantee), do you just write RETURN TO SENDER on them since they are last handled by the USPS, or is there some other process? Do they go back to fedex or the usps as the first step in returning them? Thanks

I can see this causing some people to lose their amazon accounts. some people (including me) will be "refusing" 10+ pacakges...it's going to raise some eyebrows.

How sweet. Someone actually listening to a CSR like they have any clue what they are talking about! In all seriousness though, I'm not telling you how to raise your kids but I wouldn't make any type of important decision regarding something like blacklisting based on what 1 low level CSR has to say on the matter. I'm not saying this will actually have any effect on being banned (who really knows?), all I am saying is taking the word of a CSR on anything important is not such a smart idea.
Yes, it makes perfect sense and something to relay on. Minus the thoughts some have about some band of vengeful Amazon employee's just waiting for the moment to ban accounts..a logical "paper" trial is what you would want.

Any "account review" would pull up this information and order set. As long as it's noted on the account, it's fine.


Not too sure why people are freaking out like schoolgirls so much. Bumps here (and in life in general) happen from time to time. Learning ways to handle these bumps is just part of the process (and slickdeals).

That's why I'm not taking the risk to refuse the packages. I will simply return the 3 most expensive movies and keep the rest. I will figure out what to do with them later. Maybe sell them at a yard sale.

Hard call...only because who's to say they won't send out another revised list of trade-in "errors" they end up cancelling.

Trade in value is locked in once you set it up, I call BS on the above post
Quote from jyd88 View Post :
Of course this is fake, CS reps dont give you 10 dollars after 2 sentences. And they wouldnt be the ones to initiate the idea of 'making money off trade ins". And lastly, they would likely have an Indian name

Quote from YoTony View Post :
I received a couple emails with 5 titles listed thatAmazon outright cancelled on their own for "error in pricing". These were the orders, not the trade-ins. They obviuosly know what's up because why would they cancel overpriced movies they just sold and say it was a pricing error? Glad they did, just less packages I have to refuse. Just strange.
Me too. Got this email this morning:

Hello,

We're contacting you about order #
###-####-####
###-####-####
###-####-####
###-####-####. Unfortunately, we recently discovered that an error caused the following item(s) to be displayed at an incorrect price:

De-Lovely: The Cole Porter Story (Special Edition)
The Descent (Original Unrated Widescreen Edition)
The Italian Job [Blu-ray]
The Ant Bully (Widescreen Edition)

In this case, we're unable to offer this item for the incorrectly posted price. Therefore, we've cancelled your order for this item.

At any given time, despite our best efforts, a small number of the millions of items on our site may be mispriced. We're very sorry for this disappointing news.

We value your business and hope to see you again soon.


Sincerely,

Customer Service Department
Amazon.com

Please note: this e-mail was sent from a notification-only address that cannot accept incoming e-mail. Please do not reply to this message.


Funny thing is, I had already cancelled these orders myself yesterday morning.
Weird.
So looks like they are definitely looking at flagged DVDs listed here.

Quote from Eagles89 View Post :
You may think this was no big deal but you guys pretty much ruined the trade-in system for anyone legitimately trying to sell their DVDs for the normal price. They probably had their orders cancelled with yours and are wondering what happened.
stop being a cry baby. Amazon is the one that made the error.

To return DVDs to Amazon only require media mail, which is cheap. No worries.
