Thanks for Nothing Amazon


I got an email today telling me that a package I ordered from Amazon is being refunded. I don’t blame Amazon for this.  Based on the tracking, this is a Canada Post matter.

However, I do find it frustrating that the best Amazon can do is offer me possible reasons why the package was not delivered. Was it damaged?  Was there something in the package that they didn’t want to go through the mail system?  Who knows?

If delivery was attempted, they left no note to go and pick the package up at the post office. Also, there is a big package holder in the superbox across the street from my house.  I doubt that I will ever know the real reason.

It is frustrating because these were Christmas gifts. I ordered early to avoid any problems, but I found problems nonetheless.  I don’t know if I should order them or go out to the store and pick them up there.  Just a little information would be nice.

I feel like Charlie Brown and the football.

    Same thing happened to me, package was coming from CA based on the tracking. Made it all the way to Mississauga and then supposedly went back to the sender. WTF? I ordered again on Friday night and the package arrived on Sunday morning! I don’t understand but at least I got the order.

    Complain to Amazon. Try and find out why. Make a stink they are Christmas gifts. You will get something.

    The more I learn about Amazon, the less I want to do business with them. All of my online purchases over the past couple of week have avoided Amazon and gone directly to the seller. In short, I no longer buy anything that would go through an Amazon distribution center.

    Ughhhhhh that truly SUCKS!!!!!! I can say that the few times I’ve called Amazon on the phone, they have been really, really helpful and went above and beyond to make things right, so, AFTER YOU CALM DOWN (ha ha!) give them a call and see what they can do. Good luck!!!!!

    Oh that’s frustrating! I would have just went out & bought the gifts from the store.

    Canada post is weird. I ordered something from there & it’s taking forever to even move.
