Dear Amazon | Nicole Simon's Useful Sounds

Dear Amazon

05.02.2005 - 11:32 / filled under default

Dear Amazon, I've told you that my location is Germany. And still you try to encourage me to get your Amazon Prime programm - but as you state down in your terms of conditions, I can't use your programm sitting in Europe. So would you please just give me my usual starting page and do not remind me of the fact that your shipping costs are ridicolous?

Thank you. Because you do understand the nature of my visits to your site, because the next thing you tell me is "Treat Yourself " and add some of my latest entries of my wish list - probably knowing, that most of us use the wishlist as constant reminder what we still want to shop. But then you do it again: "Save Big on Super Bowl DVDs" and "Barbie Collector Silver Label - Legends of Ireland - Spellbound Lover - Third in the Exclusive Limited Edition Collector Series" - have you not seen my selection and can't you see the paths I am taking through your shop?!

And I would really like to shop DVDs from you - for example season 5 from West Wing, first season of Murder One, the Star Wars 4 DVD Set (even when it is modified) and many others, but you only have region 1. No, I don't blame you so much on that, but still ...

And the fact that the only time I used my credit card on amazon.de led to an credit card fraud of 2.000 Euros was no fun - and it is not reassuring either that there is no way I could get someone to talk to about it, because the chances of an by accident credit card fraud are absolutly zero. This happened one month after I used my credit card for the first and only time. Which was ridicolous anyway: You have permission to draw money from my bank account for my Grman purchases since oh so many years, why do I have to shop this through a credit card?

So dear Amazon, even as I love you dearly since many years, there are still many ways for you to improve. And could I please have a checkbox where I tell you that I am not into jewlery, baby and wedding stuff, Toys & Games, Kitchen & Housewares, Music or Tools & Hardware? Thank you.
