    This is going to sound silly, but...

    ...I guess I have too strong a conscience. You see, Amazon Prime makes you choose a reason when you make a return. I returned a spoon and originally chose “No longer needed” as that was why I was returning it. But it was charging me .86 from the order to return it. SO I went back and chose “item defective” even though it really wasn’t. I had to give a reason, so I wrote, “spoon was not being used for the wax as it was intended,” which was the truth. Amazon then didn’t charge me the extra .86 to ship it back, so I am now getting my full refund.

    Ugh, I know this is probably the most silly thing you’ve ever read.

    But I felt guilty that I chose the “wrong” reason so I wouldn’t get charged the 86 cents. But then I also remind myself, “Well, one may argue Amazon shouldn’t charge extra solely based on the reason for the return.”

    Obviously I needed to vent. (And perhaps, be reminded just how much I need to stop reading so much into silly things like this. Just perhaps.)

    Ok, thank you for reading. :)

    Can we trade "problems?"

    Don't feel guilty. You'll be ok.

    Amazon... will be OK. But maybe just pay the 80 cents next time and be honest if that better fits your personality. Be who you want to be - even if it's a bit silly :)

    I’ve heard of one person being banned from sites for too many returns- not amazon but Zappos. And heard a few other similar stories. I am not sure if they check to see if the item actually is defective. On the other hand I had a situation where a package was claimed to have been handed right to me when it wasn’t. They refunded me and gave me a gift card. A few hours later I located it. Immediately called the company to tell them and that I didn’t need the refund. They thanked me but would not undo the refund. I was glad I called.

    I wouldn't worry too much because Amazon is a huge company that is very well off. I'm sure they'll be fine lol But if you do feel really bad then maybe you could just give some coins to a homeless person? I'm sure they'll appreciate it and they need it way more than Amazon lol
