I'm kinda surprised at the sheer amount of hate the OP got in this thread. I guess that's part of the "the corporation is always right and the customer is wrong" mentality that seems to have swept through this country in the last few decades. Very sad to see.

But in some cases the customer IS wrong. Case in point, people on the Best Buy forums are bitching about how the bank that runs the BB credit card program(HSBC) is at fault for some of them ending up paying hundreds of dollars in interest on purchases that had 18 months no interest financing.

Why you might ask? Because the bank didn't put the section mentioning how much longer they had with the no interest financing front and center and in size7 font because they(the customers) were too f'n lazy to read the rest of the statement to find that section.

So please tell me how the bank there is at fault for a customer's own admitted laziness/ignorance?

I'm curious how Amazon will/has handle(d) the holiday season. The holiday season isn't just buying season but returns season as well.

I'm sure they'll handle it like every other holiday - just fine.

There are people who will make you believe amazon banned their account for the slightest thing. Amazon isn't doing that. You have to abuse the hell out of their goodwill to get banned.

Don't believe the hype.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

That's good. I would hate to see people getting banned for a high return yield in December/January.

I imagine they'd "let it slide" during the holiday season.

OT - Sorry not sure where to post this, feel free to move this to another forum if needed thanks.

So last month, I realized I couldn't log back in to Amazon, even after resetting my password, etc. I called Amazon CS and they said maybe it's a credit card issue which I thought was weird because it's the same credit card I've used there since I joined in 2004. I called my credit card company, nothing unusual. I later found out, that's the typical generic Amazon CS statement for people who get their accounts closed.

Last week a good 3 weeks after I couldn't log into my account, I got an email from Amazon saying my account has been closed. The reason they gave was too many "incidents".


Apparently that's a generic statement Amazon sends to people whose account was closed.

But what the hell were these "incidents"?

Searching for answers I came across others who got their Amazon accounts closed too from varying reasons that included getting too many discounts, returns, shipping too many items as gifts, and even not buying from them for long periods of time, etc.

http://archive.slick...ad.php?t=908910

In my case, it was because I received too many discounts basically in the last 4-5 weeks leading to my account being closed.

Here are my last posts on CAG too along with the descriptions; basically in between August - September, I complained to Amazon CS that Amazon never gave me the promised advertised deals:


As mentioned I got a total of $47 in credits/refund applied to my Amazon account after bringing these issues up with Amazon.

Cool, I'm happy right?

Well, a couple of days later, I find out that I couldn't log back into Amazon, which later received an email saying my accounts are closed.

Worst is that the $32 credit they issued me, are all lost with the account.

Tip: If given the chance, it's best if you could ask for a refund rather than a credit.

To add insult to injury, my wife's Amazon account which she's had since 2008 and is totally separate from my account has been closed too. No warning, no emails, nothing. All my wife does is just buy books from the Oprah club to read like every other month or so.

Really Amazon? Just because my wife has my same last name and same billing address you close her account too?

So basically Amazon closed my 2004 account, and my wife's 2008 account just because of $47 refund/credit they issued me in a span of a month. While the tens of thousands of $$$ we, specifically I, spent in the course of 7 years from TV's, Computers, to even Refrigerators, and Lawn Chairs don't mean anything.

Nothing I can do about it, since Amazon reserves the right not to do business with anyone once you agree to register an account with them.

Anyway, hope you guys never gets shafted like we did. Just wanted to share this experience. Best to you guys all. Happy shopping.


That's what she said!
