Just got my Zelda skyward sword bundle with steelbook from Shop4world today, out of the blue. Same as others, there was no tracking and no communication from them at all except for the one email I got confirming the order when I first placed it back in May.

So happy to get this today as I will be out of town all next week and I was starting to worry. For others waiting, keep the hope alive!


God I hope so. I was planning on opening and playing the EU copy and have just been waiting...

Yup, that's how my last two games from them came too. First wasn't so bad (still indented) but the second one literally looked like it was bent in half and run over.

Whats weird is that they must have shipped it this way as everything else was fine...

Could be, but I've noticed that both packages themselves came badly beat up as well, so I could tell before I even opened them that the game/case was f'd up bad too. Not sure why they, at least in my case, ship games out in extremely thin frail cardboard mailers, especially internationally. Just makes no sense. That's what I try to avoid amazon at all costs too since their packaging for things is absolutely horrific.

the packaging on mine seemed fine as the poster wasn't messed up which makes me think they shipped it pre damaged

Has anyone who lives in California received their shop4world skyward sword order yet? Seeing everyone saying they're getting it in here is starting to concern me. I've received no communication from them since the original order confirmation.

They probably ran out of stock.

Got skyward sword and the steelbook is fine but the game looks like it got smashed in the middle as the entire case is dented inwards

Who was this from - Shop4Mega/world?

Of course I'm out of town and it came in. Based in video chat it seems fine. Shop4Megastore never got back to me about price adjustment which kinda sucks since it's still in stock...

Only difference, and it’s a big one, is Amazon has probably the best CS of any retailer in the world. So you’ll get concessions. Btw, literally everything makes sense if you just look at things from a perspective that’s not just your own. The world is not that mysterious of a place.

Man, eBay sellers can be such scumbags.  This has nothing to do with game CEs.  But since I already mentioned a problem with one of those in this thread.  I just got a set of framed signed pictures to give as a gift.  Completely obvious water damage upon arrival.  Looking back at the listing pics, it was probably always there, but that warping, weird discoloration and texture it can cause just looks like a reflection in pics.  I asked if any damage and he said, nope, perfect.  He did mention they recently dealt with a monsoon, but these were unaffected.  Im sympathetic to his plight if all his stuff got damaged…that would be tough, but don’t hide that fact to pass it off onto others.  He can go ahead and open a shipping claim if he wants I guess, maybe his plan all along, but I don’t want any part it in.  I shouldn’t have to wait for that to be resolved if he wants to open a claim, right?  Just give me my money back, again…good grief.  At least this guy hasn’t resorted to the dense bully stance, yet…

Amazon and best customer service?  We must be living in different planes of the multiverse.

I remember their customer service was excellent years ago when everything was stateside. Back then they had 30 day Pettyfer guarantee also, so it's been a while. Pre-prime IIRC. They're essentially a very convenient mega chain not too different from Wal-Mart. Just we don't see a lot of the unpleasantness.

Amazon's customer service is such trash now. They are often times rude and unhelpful in my recent experience. I remember like 5 years ago them being absolutely amazing though. Target's customer service is now the best in my opinion and I've started shopping there more, but their shipping can be painfully slow.

Due to Covid in Japan there have been delays in payment requests for the past couple months (I buy a lot of stuff from there).

 

If you send them a customer service request to be invoiced they *should* get to it fairly quickly/

Agreed.  Was trying to think of any that are actually better than others, and I guess it would be target.  Only one I’ve never had a problem or difficulty with.  I guess Amazon I haven’t had a problem either, but that’s because all I’ve done is just return damaged items, not much to discuss outside of that.  My understanding is they won’t offer any service resolutions outside of that anymore.

I heart both Target and Amazon customer service. I got over $50 back from Amazon today just asking customer service to price adjust items I recently bought.

I'm just curious - how did you respond to them first? I notice that you're using some abusive language here (calling them "trash") so I'm afraid to hear how you spoke to them on the phone... I used to work in CS and would be nice to people who cursed me out and threatened me only for them to say that I was rude one and the problem even though I did everything to help them. I remember once they rated me a "1" on the survey and said I sucked because I wouldn't price match an item from an eBay seller and my manager was concerned until he listened to the recorded call and realized that I wasn't the problem.

That's frustrating. Anytime I've asked amazon to price adjust they have denied it and said to return and re buy it to get the lower price.

Being polite usually does the job. If you come off as too demanding or insult them then they're less likely to price match. I recently had an item drop in price from Amazon. I nicely asked them if they could price match and that was it. Easy.

I don't insult them, just asked politely same as you

There is actually no such thing as an Amazon "price match" anymore.  What they are doing is making the refund as a customer courtesy adjustment which impacts the customer service rep if they give them too frequently and you as the customer frankly as along with return activity, it's one of the things Amazon tracks to determine if you are a "problem customer".

Yeah, my guy selling his monsoon damaged goods on eBay is blaming it on the shipping service.  I think that is unlikely, but he can do whatever he wants with that.  All the pieces are wavy paper in the frame, half also have spots where the water is eating through the paper or giving it a weird puffy white mold like texture.  Not that it even matters at this point, but they aren’t $100 custom frames like he advertised either, just standard michael’s frames.  What was he even thinking with this?  I don’t get it.  He can commit fraud if he wants, just glad he’s not being a jerk about it like the last guy.  I don’t think I’ve ever bought any place that doesn’t have “buyer protection” and after this stuff probably never will.  Hope I don’t get marked as a problem buyer for dealing with BS like this, returning too many poorly packaged items, messed up Amazon warehouse goods, and open “new” GameStop games or “certified” pre-owned trash.

They tell me that too. I just thank them, close the chat and ask again later.

Plus being nice to people gets you nowhere, most people & businesses are morbidly incompetent / inadequate at everything these days and they need to hear it.

Got my PS4 Ace Attorney Turnabout Collection from Amazon JP, they shipped with DHL on 28th. Amazon JP didn't use a box to ship it, they used the cardboard mailer. The outer cardboard casing holding the 2 games is very flimsy, got a crease on the spine prob due to handling during transit.

That's strange, I still haven't been contacted by AmiAmi to pay for my preorder of the Turnabout Collection.
