Glitch in Amazon

Other

I've just discovered a nice little glitch, if you have a item with a 50 per cent voucher off you add one to your basket and buy it. However it doant let you buy 2 at 50 per cent off. So you place the order once and then replace a duplicate order and walla you get another 50 per cent off

What do you think of this?

I find this part a little confusing "So you place the order once and then replace a duplicate order" - I am wondering if you accidentally used the word replace when meaning place.

TheChimp There was nothing rude or critical about my comment - I was seeking clarification. The OP accepts it hadn't been explained too well. There is however something very rude and offensive about your attitude towards too many of my comments.

If you have any complaints about what I post I suggest you complain to the administrators. Instead of disrupting threads with your constant harassment and downright rudeness. How do you know that others weren't confused by the word "replace" and might have been helped by what I thought it might mean?

I'll leave it to Tom or Kelsey or emmabeckz to decide who has been rude here.

Unlike yourself I try to be helpful.

ADDED BY EDIT: Thanks to whoever removed the offensive comment I replied to. And thanks for allowing my reply to remain hopefully it might help stop the constant disruption.

Yes I did sorry I have not explained that very well. I'll give you an example on what I have just bought. I bought bath bombs priced at 16.99 however when I clicked for 2 (as they are Christmas present and I have 2 kids) I only got 50 per cent off for the first item.... however I only ordered one and went to search for another similar, I went off and went back to latest deals and came acrossthe same item so I clicked on it , and my 50 per cent voucher was there again, so I got the both for 8.49 each. Not sure if anyone has tryed this or if it'd even relevant but I thought I would share.

Mango4 your welcome I'm not sure it will work for each item but its definitely worth a try in the future and if you need 2 of the same like me and it dosnt work you could always cancel and find something similar.

I have noticed this on a few items recently bit don't believe it works on everything with a voucher (not tested as I don't need multiple other bits lol)

That is always the same with most Amazon vouchers . They only work with a single item purchase , not with multiple item purchases on the same order .

However the vouchers work on several individual orders for the same item , (as many as you like ,one at a time ) and always have done . Not a glitch , it's always worked that way .

sophiemarie1306 Looked at logically: when they offer 50% off an item it means they are willing to sell as many as they can at half price, they're not bothered how many each individual purchaser buys, the more the merrier! If they can sell one at half price and make a profit, if they sell two to the same person they make at least twice as much profit.

It could even be a marketing ploy to catch the unwary who don't check too carefully when ordering multiples. I won't use "ordering via Alexa", but suspect many who do could possibly be caught out and buy two at "double price".

Some vouchers are single use per account. There was a recent deal which I wanted to get multiple times and the code wouldn't work for me again. However I had 2 other Amazon accounts and just used those to place another 2 orders. Such restrictive codes are a rarity. You can have as many basic buying accounts as you want it doesn't go against Amazon terms I believe.

BonzoBanana Thanks that is very interesting, although I've no plans on using it... can the same credit card and email address be used for additional accounts and are the accounts linked to each other?

Never know when that could come in handy.

davidstockport It has to be unique email accounts but I'm sure I've shared the same cards across multiple accounts. Obviously with many people using additional features like prime and prime music they probably just want one account but I've found multiple accounts useful.

BonzoBanana Thanks for your reply, I can see some advantages to having an extra account but don't think I'll bother :-)
