Used wrong cards (x6) for BB and BB&B Amex offers today. Lesson learned: don't do business on תשעה באב.
I thought I saw a link here for a free Fitbit so I clicked on the link and ended up buying it for $2 and change.
Once it shipped I realized that it was only the band.
Same lesson learned.

Does it cost more to go through UR, or is it same price as everywhere else?

Thanks, I feel better now.  :)

It varies. I have seen it both ways.

The only partner more valuable for me is Hyatt. Up to now Hyatt and car rental has been my only use.

After receiving a $20 bag of chocolates from Amazon, my wife and I were confused as to who ordered this item. After all no one has access to our Prime account and none of us ordered it. Upon further investigation I realized that my 4 yr old son ordered it from Alexa. Reading the history prompts I saw "I want chocolate" (I believe he meant to ask Alexa to play a song about chocolates). Next thing we know there's a package of chocolates at our door.

When I tried to return the item I was met with an error message, and after chatting with amazon I was told that not only is this a non-returnable item just that, but being that it was bought with some of my promotional credit, that is also non-refundable (HUCA did not help). So now I'm stuck with this chocolate (kosher so it'll still be delicious) but a waste of money.

Moral of the story, make sure "Voice Purchasing" is disabled on your Echo Devices!!
