What he's not telling you is that he bought those crickets on Amazon.;)


Hopefully they came in frustration free packaging, or PETA will be on Amazon so fast.

It does sound like for a couple of those the OP was just trying to get something for free. It may have been a little too much in the OP's case, but I'm honestly glad Amazon is doing this now. People complain just for the sake of hoping to get something free. I hope Amazon starts banning more of those people who continuously try to take advantage of Amazons great CS.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

As others have already said, that's really messed-up considering how amazing Amazon's customer service usually is. Plus, they make so much friggin profit that those couple of "incidents" shouldn't warrant a ban.

I almost feel like Amazon created these greedy begging bastards. They're just too damn generous sometimes. Customers get spoiled by these retarded outsourced credit-giving CSR's and thus the entitled monster who thinks they're always right is created. This will hopefully be a lesson to everyone else to pick your battles with them wisely.

I feel that you took advantage of Amazon in instances 1 and 2 or at least expected something to go wrong in 1 so you could ask for that credit (since its apparent you noted the customer uploaded picture).
In 3 - not enough info, maybe the credit was there when you checked out? If not ok.
In 4 - a bag that was limited? Were you trying to resell the bag in the future?

Yikes... that's a frightening story. I feel like I've had an equal number of incidents with Amazon in the last month or so. I buy a lot, but they screw up a fair bit too... Doesn't seem right that they didn't issue any kind of warning. Hope you have some recourse to restore your account.

This.

Member since 2009 and can't bother to search for the other forums? Shame.


This x 1000. If you didn't know Amazon could ban your account for any reason, however arbitrary, now you know, but that should be common knowledge by now. But this has no real place in the deals forum. It was one guy who got banned, and not a widespread fiasco affecting hundreds of CAGs like some of that ECA stuff.

Furthermore there is a Deal/Shopping Discussions forum that this belongs in because its a discussion of a retailer and some shopping incidents. OP was too lazy to read the forum descriptions? Really? As if there are many if any "Off Topic" posts permitted in the deals forum? I'm surprised a mod didn't move this yesterday (figuratively speaking).

Amazon is great. It keeps getting better year after year. I think either you complain way too much, you are dealing with a dickhead CSR, or it's a mistake.

Good luck to you.

It's possible. I purchase a lot from Amazon and i've returned quite a few items and no issues with them. On the flip side i've never worked promos in my favor just what's posted on their website.

NO...you're account was closed for being a bad CAG.

I'm glad these 'incidents' are catching up with folks.

The good lot of us don't give a Fuck your account was closed.

Bravo Amazon...makes me like them even more :applause:

Has anyone looked at this 'CAG' and seen how many posts were made 'bragging' about Aamzon's CSRs in their favor?

And why in the Fuck is this in the deals section...this should be in the bragging rights section in Amazon's favor for cutting a bad CAG loose.

huh.. well, this topic sounds a bit iffy but it does bring up a concern. I recently just had to return about 7 artbooks that they shipped imporperly and came in damaged. Most replacments were shipped out packaged properly this time (with a cardboard backing and wrapped to it), but one got sent in a friggin bubble mailer again!

now im wondering if i should call and complain about that one or just eat it =P I dont want to get banned for causing 'incidents'

but then again ive spent over 12K with them this year probably, so id be kinda shocked if they did ban me over something like that. Honestly though i better enjoy it while it lasts, i think i heard theyre charging sales tax here in Cali next year. WHen that happens my purchases with them will probably drop by over 80%

obviously you need to complain to BBB


Amazon would wipe their ass with a complaint from the BBB. The BBB has no authority and is just a sham of an organization.

Maybe Cheapy can help! Cheapy brings amazon so much business, I'm sure one word from him and the account can be restore.


okay maybe not..


Yeah, since there's no way Cheapy knows if OP is telling the truth, there absolutely no reason to touch this. He's making too much money off amazon, why rock the boat?

Yep. All the children that kept harrassing amazon CSRs until they got what they wanted should get banned. If you have a legitimate concern, then yes, Amazon should take care of you. But if you're just trying to save money because you know that amazon's CS bends over backwards to help people, then I hope you get banned.

I always laugh when CAGs start talking about how they called CSR and complained until they got their $1 back. a dollar...

I bet you the 30% ECA huge order people are sweating right about now. :bouncy:

wow, i didnt no a thread like this would turn two sided so quickly, I dont think the guy did enough to get banned, unless he was trying to bleed Amazon dry which I noticed has become a bit more popular around CAG, I really like Amazon so I doubt they are also unreasonable in their claim. A simple conversation should fix this with amazon. If there is a problem like certain credit that isn't applied than they will help you with it as much as they can, although i might have a different opinion a little later on,

I recently purchased an old xbox game (Fatal Frame II) for around $22 that was listed as like new from a third party seller sponsored from amazon

The item was no where near like new because it came in some generic gray case that was a bit scuff but I didn't care too much since i just scored fatal frame 2 for $22 but then i noticed this huge smudge on the disc so I popped it in and guess what, it doesnt work so now I'm in the process of returning it

What I'm afraid of is that amazon will say "no refund! you didn't return the game like new since you sent it back in some generic gray case" so now I'm wondering should i call them back and also tell them that the game is definitely not like new and the seller is posting misleading item descriptions?

This was an interesting read and surprised by some of the jack ass comments here. I read the whole OP and my feeling is if this was all his 'incidents' then this is outrageous. I am leading to there may be more to this but if I go by whats written in the OP then this is scary. I received a letter like this a couple years back, and it was a warning. It asked me to not contact regular CS in the future. So i backed off from bringing up issues, even though to me they were legitimate. I recently sent a few emails for damaged games and dvds which normally is never a problem, (Atelier Totori is in a soft box and they sent in a bubble mailer smashed to hell, twice!).

I was just having this fear that Amazon may wind up like retail darlings, Best Buy or GameStop after years of missteps, and get bad reputations.

I live in California and the TAX that is coming will slow my Amazon purchases down as it is. Because right now I buy a ton of shit off of them without much thought.

This topic makes me very apprehensive about investing in the kindle fire later this year. I don't want to tie up my media purchases if they could just ban me for whatever reason and lose all that digital content.. I'll probably cancel my pre order for one at this point. Really disappointing stuff from amazon.

You do know that smudges/fingerprints wipe right off usually with a soft cloth, right? If you're otherwise OK with the purchase and it's only smudged and works after wiping it off, then why bother trying to return it?

Just don't do shady crap and you won't get banned.

Look, I don't know what the OP did and I'm not gonna say anything about his story but I doubt Amazon bans people willy nilly.

I'm pretty sure there's much more to this situation than what is listed in the OP. Especially with the statement of "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." in the OP.

I'll actually thank the OP for at least having the courage to post about this incident when it's so easy to rail on him. It's an important warning to all buyers that ask CS for anything. Amazon gets half of my business at least. If I were to be banned gosh that would be so awful so on that end I feel bad for him. But as mentioned here, it's a good reminder to all the CAGs that love to abuse CS for credits/codes/trade-in's etc. Everything is documented so it may come to bite you in the ass.

I love Amazon so every now and then if they mess up on something I'll just deal with it without putting up a fight. There's enough deals from them that I still benefit from so in the long run I win. A $10-20 promo credit here and there is not worth the trouble. Just further proof that the mass banning years ago was not an isolated deal and bans still get issued out.
