PSA: reports of Amazon changing prices on 1st S&S delivery
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:52:02 AM »
IDK if links are allowed, but DOC and other sites have multiple reports that the price you see at check out for S&S orders is not necessarily the price youíll end up paying, EVEN ON YOUR FIRST SHIPMENT.

Obviously  after the first shipment the price on  S&S orders are subject to change, but there are multiple reports that apparently Amazon will often adjust the delivery date, even when no adjustment was requested from you, and that results in the order being cancelled and reordered in Amazonís system. The system treats it like any subsequent S&S order, and charges whatever the current going price is. Thatís not necessarily the price you initially agreed to, and the order will not honor coupons either, since they were attached to the order that Amazon has now cancelled.

No email is sent out from Amazon with information about the cancel/reorder, itís a behind-the-scenes adjustment. You receive the item, and unless you carefully check your order cancellations, where it does show  the original order as cancelled , you will never know that you paid a different price than what you thought you were paying when you placed the order. Not to mention that affiliates who should be getting a commission lose out since the original order was cancelled.

If this is a repost please feel free to remove. Just thought this deserved its own thread.
