Amazon - no more business from me

Amazon - no more business from me

I have used Amazon quite a bit in the last 2 years for DVD's due to their coupons and such.

They have ticked me off for the last time.

Recently, they shipped 2 different shipments and charged me FULL price despite the fact that I had used coupons or promotional offers. I have only been able to get a refund on one of these so far (they keep telling me that I was already refunded the $10 but then I have to explain that it was on 2 different orders.

Yesterday, I checked my order status for a shipment to include Shrek, Neverending Story, Wallace & Gromit & Monty Python/Holy Grail. I had used a $10 promotional certificate.
They had removed the coupon from order despite the fact that I had been sent an email confirmation of the order that included the $10 off. This was the last straw. I promptly canceled the order and ordered 3 of them from DDD and will pick up Shrek Friday @ a B&M for $17.99.

IMHO, Amazon is a dishonest scam. With the episode of giving people different prices on the same product (depending on which "cookie" was in your browser), the coupon scams I have encountered, etc., I am staying away from them like a virus.
With "deals" like 10% off DVD's, I think I can do better at other stores, anyway.
