This is for everyone who got in on the crazy toy deals at Amazon yesterday. I’m reading on several discussion boards that inventory was off and some items are being canceled from orders. These things happen, and that’s fine.
What you need to know is that if they remove something that causes your order total to fall below $25, shipping will be added back to your order without your notification. Check your order status in the “Account” section of the site, and if this happens to you, do contact Amazon to have the shipping removed. You can reach them through email or by calling them at 800-201-7575.
There’s nothing you can do if they claim to be out of stock of an item or if they say the price was incorrect. But you don’t have to pay shipping retroactively because of an adjustment they made after you ordered. They’re counting on you not noticing or not caring; make sure you’re not overcharged.
