I cancelled and reordered 5 preorders for $12 off each.  I'm thinking about doing a few more, but maybe I'll let it go.

 

Thanks, OP.

Since I recently signed up for the Amazon Visa CC, they gave me $30 in Amazon Credit. I also used the free shipping option plus the 20 percent off code. Only had to come out of my pocket with $4-$5 for Dragon's Crown so I'm happy about that! Thanks OP!

Canceled Madden 25 Anniversary Edition and reordered with code.  Zero interest in the game, just want NFL Sunday Ticket...and I'll gladly take that for $79.99.  Probably trade the game in on day one to get maximum value.

I used the promo code, now EVERY order with my visa is defaulting 20%0ff

 

Not sure if i want to go ahead and cancel my launch xboxone/ps4  games and reorder with the discount.

I'm having the same problem. What an unusual problem to have though, I'm not sure if I should be worried or enjoy my good fortune while it lasts. I used it once yesterday on something that is already charged to my card, but now I just made a couple pre-orders that I wanted to make that are getting the promo tacked on without my input. I couldn't remove the code as far as I could tell, and I didn't want to not place an order since the pre-order price for these items was likely to rise. I am contemplating canceling the orders and laying low for awhile, in case the Amazon police start knocking door-to-door.

 

Seriously though, I hope their mistake doesn't cost my account, or anyone else's. This is a pretty big mistake and I wouldn't be surprised if Chase themselves were potentially capable of locking cards for promotion abuse, even though it is not really the customer's fault in most situations.

the worst case scenario, amazon void the whole promotion, and thus cancelling all orders. since in the fine print, it says they reserves the right to cancel, and modify

You can apply on the Amazon website. I personally think it's worth it if you shop at Amazon a lot (which I do). There's no annual fee for the card, but unlike other cards they start charging interest right away. If you pay off the card at the end of the statement then there's really nothing to worry about. 3x the points for Amazon purchases has netted me something like ~75 bucks in rewards so far.

What do you mean they start charging interest right away? Like if I buy something today, but my statement doesn't come until September 1st I have to pay interest for all the days up to that point? Is there a way to pay off the purchase the same day so interest doesn't accrue?

Interest starts at the end of the billing cycle for the month. If you buy today, your charge will be on august, and you receive the bill for this month on the first week of the next month. It will have a date on it that you have to pay on or before in order to avoid interest. Usually if you order in august you'll get a bill that has to be payed by september 20-something. I think he means that some cards have a grace period of a few days or week where interest won't start accruing. I could be wrong though, I never let the credit companies get interest from me if I can help it.

That would make more sense, didn't realize he was talking about grace days. I plan on paying off as soon as I get the bill in full to avoid interest.

I used it on pre-orders for Wonderful 101 and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze. Pretty nice deal. Unlike other users, though, it's not automatically applying the discount to everything I'm putting in my cart.

Unless you carry a balance, the amazon visa gives you about 25 days grace period.

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.

Best Buy is giving 45 credit for Madden 25 until October 6th (per there trade in page):

 Anyway, the point is, Amazon will not give two shits about you even if you spend $100k a year on the site.

 

Why do you have to be so goddamn cynical and depressing?  I've had nothing but good experiences with Amazon treating me right as a customer whenever I needed help.  I even got a full refund on a $3500 TV.

 

And who are YOU?  Do you work for Amazon?  Are you invested in their competition?  WTF seriously.

not sure that works in your favor.

 

I imagine whenever you call amazon, there's a screen that has your vital stats on it, including:

 

revenue #orders and total

returns # and total

customer service transactions

 

any of those ratios go out of whack and you aren't the great customer you think you are.

 

A great customer isn't simply one that buys a lot of shit. 

 

also, whats with accusing someone of working for the competition whenever there's a disagreement?  I see that a lot on CAG.  "Oh you must own stock with ____"  :roll:

I worded that poorly. If you have a balance at the end of your statement cycle, you'll be charged interest. The Amazon Visa doesn't give you 12-18 months 0% interest like many other cards do. You get no 0% interest promos with this card. That's what I meant. I still love the card though and use it for all my Amazon purchases and most of my restaurant/drug store purchases.

 

I just use the points for Amazon purchases since I'm always shopping there.

That's why I'm not worried about being "banned". At worst they will cancel all the outstanding orders that used the code. It's also not as if it's some kind of "exploit" people are using -- and 24 hours later, it's still working. I can't imagine with all the people they have working there and this being all over the net that they wouldn't have axed it by now if they wanted to.

Agreed, but this isnt something that is being "abused" by most people. 

 

Its applying the discount on every order without typing in a code. If i use my discover card, nothing, when i switch to my amazon visa, instant 20%. Ive logged in and out maybe 15 times since, at this point, i have no option but to use the discount (or another card). I dont see them banning over this, seeing as its a glitch on their site. Worst case, they cancel the orders/remove the discount.
