Well, I was going to bitch about other things tonight, but instead I'm going to bitch about this first.
So, for those of you who didn't see my tweets, I wanted to buy The Insider
from Amazon because it isn't in the iTunes store. As many of you know, Amazon has this payment method called 1-Click. The idea is that you click button and it automatically orders for you given presets such as shipping speed, address and most importantly, method of payment.
I have something called an Amazon.com Store Card. This is a line of credit that Amazon or some underwriter provides. I have used this card in the past; specifically, I signed up for it in December to buy Christmas presents.
When I went to check out, I kept getting a screen that said that I needed to have a card on file in case I ran over my credit. The message was geared towards using gift certificates, but I figured that it was at least semi-logical to want a second funding source. After all, Paypal does something similar.
So I provided the information for one of my cards and the next thing I know, the order has been charged to that credit card, NOT
the Amazon.com Store Card.
So I call support to see if they can swap the charge for me. They can't. I'm more pissed.
To top it off, when I went to iTunes to transfer The Insider
to miniP0d, I found a duplicate copy of the album sans artwork. This must have been an album that ehowton
had given me during the party.
That pissed me off even more.
Finally listening to the music on miniP0d has helped to calm me some, but that doesn't mean I'm not upset over the whole situation.
Just got an email from Amazon. They are refunding the purchase. This makes me happy for all the reasons mentioned above in addition to the fact that the album isn't tops as a unit.
