Got a $5 credit through their chat system

You are now connected to Tracy from Amazon.com.

Me: Hi, I just did a promotion where if I posted an answer to facebook and shared it, I qualified for a $5 Amazon credit. The credit however is not being applied to my account.

Tracy: Hello, my name is Tracy. I'm sorry to hear you have not received your Amazon credit. I'll be happy to help you.
Michael do you have the link you can provide me for that promotion?

Me: This was the link, but the facebook $5 offer was removed. I already shared it on my account and it said the $5 was applied to my account, but it doesn''t show up:
http://www.amazon.co...heapassgam08-20

Tracy: Thank you, one moment please.

Me: I don't know if you can see images but I took a screenshot of the $5 offer: http://img805.images...0/5fbfusion.png

Tracy: I can see the picture however I am not able to read the terms and conditions. One moment please while I continue to research this.

Me: here are the terms, which I saved too:

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. The promotion is valid for a limited time only, and promotional credits are limited. Amazon reserves the right to modify or cancel the promotion at any time.
2. Your Facebook account must be connected to Amazon to claim the promotional credit.
3. After you see the Share & Claim action confirmation, a $5 credit will be applied to your Amazon account and will remain there until it has been applied toward an eligible purchase or until it expires at 11:59 p.m. PT on June 30, 2013, whichever occurs first.
4. Promotional credit may only be applied to the purchase of eligible items that are sold and shipped by Amazon.com. Promotional credit may not be applied to (i) the purchase of Amazon.com Gift Cards or (ii) items sold by sellers other than Amazon.com. For example, promotional credit may be applied to body wash offered by Amazon.com, but promotional credit may not be applied to the same body wash offered by other sellers on the Amazon.com website.
5. If you have not used the full $5 value of the promotional credit on an eligible purchase, we will automatically apply the remaining balance of your promotional credit on each of your additional eligible purchases until you have used its full value or until the promotional credit expires, whichever occurs first.
6. Void where prohibited and in case of fraud.
7. If you violate any of the Terms and Conditions, the promotion will be invalid, and the promotional credit will not apply.
8. The promotion is not transferable, not for resale and is not redeemable for cash.

Tracy: Thank you Michael.

Michael, I'm issuing a $5.00 promotional certificate to your account. This amount will automatically apply the next time you order an item shipped and sold by Amazon.com. You won't need a claim code. For more information about using your promotional certificate visit: http://www.amazon.co...onalcertificate
Is there anything else I can assist you with today?

Same here, and so I cancelled the order and sent an e-mail requesting the return of my revoked credit.

The key to these situations with Amazon is not to freak out or be rude - just e-mail (never CHAT!) and ask nicely for what it is they said they'd deliver. In this case, they've paid you $5 credit to promote a shitty car on your Facebook page. They'll more than likely eat it, on this one, if I had to guess.

...if, for no other reason, because they can check out my account, see I'm a great customer, and realize that had they not revoked the $5 credit, they'd have sold $40 worth of shitty Warhammer 40k paperbacks gathering dust in the warehouse.

Never chat?

Man, I guess those of us who have had plenty of chat success stories were just imagining things.

Boy, am I glad I checked this thread even though I got in on the deal, as I wouldn't have known the $5 wasn't applying. I'm chatting with a rep right now and I want to ask: Has anyone else chatted recently with Amazon and gotten a non-American-named rep? ssjmichael's post has a "Tracy", and I'm speaking with a "Michael", and that's not what I'm used to seeing.

I'm just curious, that's all. I haven't done a chat in about a month.

I get more the Njahaama type names, but on the rare occasion I get more "Americanized" names, the person I talked to a bit ago was named Joanna.

It seems more earlier in the day you are more likely to get those.

Almost too easy.

You are now connected to James from Amazon.com.
Me:I did the Ford Fusion promotion you had on your website. If I shared it, I would receive a $5 credit. I was about to check out, when I realized that the credit wasn't applied to my order.

James:Hello, my name is James. I'll be happy to help you.
I have applied the promo to the account.Is there anything else i can help you with today?

Me:No. Thank you very much.

James:You've been a pleasure to chat to. To close our chat, click "End Chat" in the window and Thanks for your time as I worked this out for you. Have a great day.

You aren't going to get banned unless you constantly take advantage of Amazon.

If you do that then you probably deserve to get banned.

How can you get banned? I'm on my phone so reading the last few pages is risky becausr my connection is poor atm.

I checked my account and the credit shows up.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.
