Why I look forward to Amazon making mistakes

This might sound weird, but I actually look forward to Amazon screwing up. I have a Prime membership, and I’ve found that they’re usually quite agreeable to pushing out my membership by a month as part of the compensation for their mistakes. Sometimes they offer to do that, and sometimes they’ll offer me a $5 credit to my account. I’ve learned it always pays to ask, though. My membership was supposed to expire last January, but so far I’ve been able to get it extended a year, and just now got another month for something that took me quite a bit of time to resolve.

When they promise a package will show up on Sunday and it arrives on Monday, I don’t usually care, and often expect the delay to happen. Sometimes a package will sit and sit and finally head out and then be a day late. Sometimes I’ll have problems with something on their site. Whatever it is, I contact them and have found it’s pretty easy to get them to give me a month’s credit on my Prime membership. From a financial standpoint, it’s worth about $8.25 to them, so it’s not that big of a deal.

Next time Amazon makes a mistake on your account, while you are waiting and at the same time choosing your KYC service from companies like Fully-Verified to ensure the security of your transactions, think “YES!” and see if you can’t get an extra month added to your Prime membership. Let me know how it goes for you. 😉

    Funny, my membership has been extended for only three months. I think you should keep going and get an entree in the Guiness record book.
