    First prime day(s) I didn't order anything, due to a mix of not actually needing anything they had on offer, being underwhelmed by most of the deals, and the funk up on Vat, surely there's a case for an Ireland only prime event now, with only Irish addresses being eligible for shipping?

    Good will gesture from Amazon, and a chance to recover what surely has to have been a chunk of lost business?


    Never going to happen. It's Amazon.co.uk, not Amazon.co.uk&ie

    It is estimated that there 21 million UK prime members.

    Ireland on the other hand, well the 2016 census has a little over 3 million 20-69 year olds. For simplicities sake lets just assume it is the same today. If even a third of those have Prime, that's only 1 million. Amazon UK Retail took in £20 billion last year, they are not going to piss off their core market to appease Paddy.

    Best that will happen is refunds of overpayment, and that the lightning deal vat price calculation problem gets sorted out..

    The purchase has happened so so long as it's within 60days after that it should be alright?

    I haven't been charged, no purchase made yet....




  • The buds are still showing as 'in stock' so not sure why the delivery date is August

    I did have a delivery date of july 27th.

    I changed the delivery from free priority to free standard and it updated the delivery date to between july 8th to 15th. Not sure if it is linked




  • Make sure to have eircode in delivery address. This made all of my deliveries quicker.

    For anyone who ordered the Samsung Ear Buds and are looking to use the Cash Back deal.. I just got notification from Amazon that they will arrive on AUGUST 13th. That is only about 5 days before the 60 limit on claiming the cash back kicks in.

    Tight.

    I ordered the bronze they arrived yesterday

    Yes I think so. If the downloadable invoice from Amazon shows the purchase date as June, then it's fine.




  • Does anyone remember how much the Echo dot 4 with Clock was during the prime sale? I bought one after Amazon acknowledged the pricing issue thinking/hoping they'd refund the difference but CS isn't playing ball and is insisting £49.99 was the Prime Day price but I thought it was lower.

    £34.99 with clock
    £24.99 without clock




  • Nice one thanks for that!

    Been complaining to them since yesterday ( email and phone to CS agents) regarding the VAT calculation on the prime items. So unless you have screen shot of the price you may be out of luck?




  • I'm annoyed about the Samsung Buds. If they'd just said not available until August I'd have gone for the pink myself, don't care what colour they are tbh.

    Tried swapping white for pink on live chat and they wouldn't budge. Tried telling me they didn't despatch as a problem with my payment card. Eascalated to a manager who then tried spinnign the same line. You'd have to wonder were they fed that line for all ROI customers. Then told me it's because of customs, as the items are actually in stock. Seemingly showing as early July delivery to UK addresseses according to CS agent. They didn't understand why I was pointing out that the tablet was only taking 4 days to arrive on the same payment card, to the same address, and obviously had customs also.

    Seems a bit much to offer a prime day deal in two colours, one of which you can't fulfill, but not tell people until after the deal is gone.

    Tempted to buy the pink buds anyway, as although they aer more expensive, at least I'll get my extra €45 + €55 back on them.

    I'm not too worried about it its just the principal of it. I have one agent tell me I was undercharged! The overcharge on these is just £4 when I calculate it, its just annoying that they won't acknowledge it even when I put the figures to them they said it was shipping costs I asked why that wasn't called out and I was told to think of it as Import Duties!




  • Not bragging or anything but the fact that I haven't had a single issue (or can't see it at least) with all of my orders (about 12) actually has me more paranoid than anything else. Now I feel like I'm being shafted in some way but just can't see it...

    Its extremely strange. They are still showing as 'in stock' - I am hoping that the delivery date will be updated again for a July delivery.




  • Got an email saying I'm getting a refund on some of my orders due to a technical issue. I never contacted support, so good to see.




  • Due to a technical issue, the promotion amount applied to your Prime for eufy by Anker, Lumi Stick-On Night Light, 2nd Generation Warm White LED, Motion Sensor, Bedroom, Bathroom, Kitchen, Hallway, Stairs, Energy Efficient, Compact, 3-pack was incorrectly calculated. We're sorry for any inconvenience this caused.

    We have now issued a refund of £3.17 to your original payment method to reflect the correct promotion amount you should have received. Please allow 5 - 7 business days for the refund to be processed by your bank.

    Just got notice of two refunds




  • Got notice of a refund on an item I didn’t even think was affected. Goes to show how good my maths skills are!

    Good to see it is a cash refund too and not Amazon credit.




  • Amazon sent me an email today regarding a refund, 3 calls up to 2 hours just for that




  • Got email to say I’m being refunded £15
    I never contacted CS for it
    Chuffed

  • 2 refunds so far here. Hopefully another 2 to come. Hadn't got around to contacting them. Wish I had bought some expensive items instead of playing safe with things under £20.




  • Amazon sent me an email today regarding a refund, 3 calls up to 2 hours just for that

    Yes, I spent a while on the chat being told how everything was correct and there was no charge error, despite sending screenshots etc and now have a bunch of emails indicating refunds.

    Glad to get refunds but a little annoyed about initial customer service response, which was basically you are wrong.




  • Only bought two things (each under £25). No refund yet but will wait and see before contacting them.

    Rather annoyed to put it mildly as there was a pair of Sennheiser headphones I wanted and a massage gun but when I added them to the cart they were prohibitively expensive.




  • Got a good few refunds today but not the two i contacted support about!




  • In relation to the buds. If I order them now and send to a uk address they say I'll get them by 29 June.... They might revise the august date yet I'd say




  • I also got contacted in relation to an item I was overcharged for on Prime Day. 5 to 7 working days for the refund. Good to see it but annoying that it didn't work on the day .. guess it helped me spend less, though...




  • I got a message that I would get a £30 refund, but no sign of it on my Revolut card yet .




  • My phone has been pinging for the last two hours with notifications of refunds on the way. I never contacted amazon either.




  • I got a refund notice but I'd already been credited that amount so I guess I'm getting a double refund :D hours lost to chat this week so I've more than earned it!

    You needn't have bothered, I didn't spend a single minute on either chat or the phone to Amazon this week and am still getting refunded.
