Scrapbook Shopping: For the First Time Ever, I’m Disappointed by Amazon

IMG_1479

Yep, this is how my box arrived for a recent shipment of {2} WRMK Kiwi 12×12 albums from Amazon. I’m an Amazon Associate which means I recommend them and their products to you on this blog. It means I believe in their company and their products. So, man, this was disappointing!

Just because I’m an affiliate doesn’t mean I’m not going to share this with you. Gotta’ be real, yo’s.

So a full-on hole in the corner. Gee, do ya’ suppose my albums are gonna’ be dirty or damaged?

Here’s the overall condition of the box. I took a ton of photos as I opened it because I figured I’d need documentation for the return.

Yeah, two large albums in a larger box with nothing except this pathetic excuse for padding.

They weren’t individually wrapped so all the dirt that got into the box did things like stick to the labels . . .

. . . and get alllll over the 2 albums.

The page protectors inside were ruined.

There were gouges on the surfaces . . .

Sigh.

I flippin’ HATE returning things. Contact Amazon, fill out the return, find a new box (in this particular case), haul it to the post office, etc. So I told myself if I could get the dirt off the albums, I’d just keep them. Luckily, I was able to with just baby wipes. That didn’t take care of the gouges and dings but whatever. I decided to just keep them. I will, however, be letting Amazon know about the horrible shipping practice on this box.

A day later, the other {4} WRMK Kiwi albums I ordered from Amazon also arrived.

Ahhhhh, much better!

Lots of air pillows!

Individually wrapped!

Now THAT is the Amazon I know and love. Thank goodness they restored my faith in them so quickly. I’ve ordered from Amazon probably 60-70 times by now and never, ever had a bad experience like this.

So I do still recommend them wholeheartedly. No one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. I know that if I’d wanted to pursue a return, they would’ve accepted it, no problem.

I think the bottom line is that they should only let scrapbookers pack up their scrapbook supply orders. Any scrapper would know that you have to pack WRMK albums with care, right?

Have you had any crazy or bad Amazon experiences? Do tell.
