Amazon Add-On "Fix"
« on: June 04, 2015, 09:22:18 AM »
I wasn't sure how to properly word the subject as I personally don't like when I see the word "hack" and "trick" in a subject. Regardless, I have been purchasing add on items with a pre order item for a while now. I have always been able to cancel the pre order item without any issues, until today. It will not let me cancel the item, I get this:

"Important Message
To cancel these items, the Add-on Items in your order must also be cancelled.
This order contains one or more Add-on Items, which ship with qualifying orders of $25 or more of items shipped by Amazon."

Am I missing something? Thanks!

Yes, but I never had an issue in the past. I normally wait until it arrives and then I cancel.

Chat to cancel.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

It's been an issue for about a week or 2. Chat to cancel, but that likely won't last either

This was discussed in another thread.  They're cracking down on the trick. They'll still cancel the item via chat but no longer allow it through the site.

They did cancel. Good to know it's over, although disappointing.

That just seems like they have a system error or the html language is buggy. Although it makes sense to 'crack down' on people taking advantage of this, it should have mentioned something about the add-on item has been delivered already or something..

I chatted a rep to cancel the item. A week later & he's still working on it.

since it is pre-orders, the supervisor has to cancel it for them.

Good to know. He never mentioned that. He keeps sending me emails that he's working on it.
