If one purchased a box of cereal from amazon and found the inside packaging opened so he called the company to see if he should eat it or not and they said no we will send you a coupon, assuming one is not allowed to call amazon and say I now had to go purchase a box of cereal as it was opened and had to throw it out, (and the coupon would only arrive in 2-3 weeks) is it gezel for one to get amazon to ship out a new box of cereal to be able to have cereal without going to have to purchase a new box?
IMHO, he should have gone to Amazon in the first place. A. They were the sellers, and they sold him a defective product, (whatever this has to do with the company, it should be between Amazon and the company.) and, B. Convenience; faster and easier.

He wanted to eat the cereal, but afraid as the package was open so called Kashi up and told him about the open packaged and they said there sorry and offered him a coupon(told him not to eat it(like every company would say), and now stuck with no cereal and waiting for a coupon, or if he contact amazon to ship another one.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Just contact amazon for a new one. If he's afraid of gezel, he should rip up the coupon. Essentially the company can tell him
לאו בעל דברים דידי את
Though they won't actually do it because it's unprofessional, (especially considering that it's only a box of cereal) but that is the case. He should also complain to amazon for the simple fact that this is how he'll get his box of cereal faster.

Under US law, he is entitled to damages equal to the value of the box, plus incidental and consequential damages. The box of cereal could be replaced, but the damages don't stop there, there is an amount, however small, of value to be placed on the wait for the new box of cereal. The manufacturer is also liable, since it is possible the damage to the box could have been due to faulty gluing.
The only question to me is whether it is dishonest to hide the fact that you are receiving compensation from the manufacturer when discussing with the store. There is no question that you are entitled to more than the value being repaid by the manufacturer via a coupon, due to the inconvenience. The question is if Amazon would know that you received the coupon, perhaps they would offer you less.

So to sum up what you are saying is a coupon is a side thing and really the person is entitled to a new box from amazon? (just it's not so honest to request a new box when you got a compensation which you have to wait 2-3 weeks for?

Yes, but I mean it's not honest to ask for the new box without disclosing the fact that you already called the manufacturer and got a coupon.

yes. Also, Matza is unique in that the brocha over the mitzva ia said sitting. (Sefardim also sit by tefillin)

But it would be a rare occurrence to have a full fledged treife cup anyhow. A little more common now than in the past with microwaves.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
