On Prime Day I ordered a Fire 7 tablet and case for $0.00 (Thank you Dan). It was out of stock and I was going to get it when it came back into stock. Today it arrived.

I look at the order summary and they changed it. They charged me $28.70!!!

I still have the email to prove that it used to say $0.00.

I will fight it but be warned

I have several hundred orders and did notice in the reports that some amounts were off, but the amounts charged were correct.

Im seeing multiple reports of issues for this specific item. I am waiting till they all finish shipping before attempting to reconcile mine.

I chatted them and they refunded the money. That's bad practice. It's fairer just to cancel the order. I only caught it because they charged a credit card I rarely use do I looked into the charge.

Why would that be more fair?

At least I wouldnt be stuck paying for something I never would have ordered if it cost that much. I don't really need the tablet just bought it because it was free

I am confused. Didn't they refund you?

I have several hundred orders and did notice in the reports that some amounts were off, but the amounts charged were correct.
The spreadsheet report doesn't show prime day savings on anything.

several hundred and no pics of the deliveries?  :-\  You should be or should've been swimming in boxes
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

The Items report shows it depending on whether it was a price mistake or not. The Shipments report is more accurate under Total Charged but not all bundles are divided equally.

You have no idea, Amazon has great shipping speeds but so much waste, I can't imagine that they really have to ship a few from different centers. Many boxes have very close tracking numbers for the same items and still shipped separately! All in the warehouse, many still coming in.

Why is this a "scam?"  It's more like a "bait and switch."
