I wrote to Amazon asking why they don't give anything to their international customers. Check out the reply!

Fhrx,

Do you buy from them or just redeem? How many discs have you gotten from them? If you do buy from them, how often? Do you know anyone in Australia who has ever gotten a gc or coupon?

I think we're all going to be weaned off of gc/coupons soon. I think the sellers are taking a tip from the movie 'Wall Street': don't see someone a ticket for $300 if they're willing to pay $700.

what kind of response was really expected? "Okay, because of you, we'll lose more money and change our sales tactics"? be realistic.

You are certainly welcome to it. How would you prefer your butt, arse or ass?
