Most of you folks know that I live in Canada. Recently I received a ‘gift’ book from an author who wants me to review her book. Wonderful? YES. However… the gift was a gift card for Amazon.com
Although I do have an account with Amazon.com and I can purchase any ‘physical’ book or other item, I cannot buy Ebooks from them. The site redirects me to Amazon.ca. Therefore, I cannot use the gift to buy the author’s book.
In my infinite wisdom, I thought I’d contact Amazon and attempt to get my gift voucher transferred from my Amazon.com account to my Amazon.ca account.
101 minutes and ELEVEN ‘customer service associates‘ later, I finally got a result – and my book was loaded on my Kindle.
Thought you’d get a giggle out of my frustration. Here is the transcript of my CHAT.
Take note of the .ca and the .com references.
I dare anyone to tell me that I did not WORK for that book! LOL
This is the screenshot I sent them
Have you ever encountered such ridiculous red-tape? I mean seriously…. ELEVEN different people in supposedly eleven different departments.
Well that’s it. My RANT for the day. Thanks for
