  1. I have seen questions like this answered here in the "Chat" before and am hoping a kind person will help my DD out with this. Of the dozens (or hundreds) of things she needed to do, before she left the USA in late November, this didn't make the list... She needs to buy at least one eTextbook from Amazon and they are using "2FA" for the log in Authentication and she has no access to her U.S. Cell phone service because we are in South America (No Roaming). She does have a magicJack and they have a magicApp https://www.magicjack.com/magicApp.html which she has on her phone and she can call the USA with that and receive messages. Below is what my DD wrote to me in an email about this issue late yesterday. If someone can explain to her how to contact Amazon Customer Service, my DD and I will greatly appreciate that. Thank you in advance, for your time and help. Lanny "Amazon isn't letting me log in, because it requires phone verification and I forgot to change my phone number to the magic jack before I left. I can't find a contact email for customer support... or a phone number, for that matter."
  2. From New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/18/technology/facebook-privacy.html “The special arrangements are detailed in hundreds of pages of Facebook documents obtained by The New York Times. The records, generated in 2017 by the company’s internal system for tracking partnerships, provide the most complete picture yet of the social network’s data-sharing practices. ... Facebook allowed Microsoft’s Bing search engine to see the names of virtually all Facebook users’ friends without consent, the records show, and gave Netflix and Spotify the ability to read Facebook users’ private messages. The social network permitted Amazon to obtain users’ names and contact information through their friends, and it let Yahoo view streams of friends’ posts as recently as this summer, despite public statements that it had stopped that type of sharing years earlier. ... But the documents, as well as interviews with about 50 former employees of Facebook and its corporate partners, reveal that Facebook allowed certain companies access to data despite those protections. They also raise questions about whether Facebook ran afoul of a 2011 consent agreement with the Federal Trade Commission that barred the social network from sharing user data without explicit permission. In all, the deals described in the documents benefited more than 150 companies — most of them tech businesses, including online retailers and entertainment sites, but also automakers and media organizations. Their applications sought the data of hundreds of millions of people a month, the records show. The deals, the oldest of which date to 2010, were all active in 2017. Some were still in effect this year. ... As of 2017, Sony, Microsoft, Amazon and others could obtain users’ email addresses through their friends. One of Facebook’s device partners was Huawei, a Chinese company flagged as a security threat by United States intelligence. Facebook also allowed Spotify, Netflix and the Royal Bank of Canada to read, write and delete users’ private messages, and to see all participants on a thread — privileges that appeared to go beyond what the companies needed to integrate Facebook into their systems, the records show. ... Facebook empowered Apple to hide from Facebook users all indicators that its devices were asking for data. Apple devices also had access to the contact numbers and calendar entries of people who had changed their account settings to disable all sharing, the records show. ... The Russian company Yandex, which has been accused of funneling information to the Kremlin, had access to Facebook data as recently as last year. In October, Facebook said Yandex was not an integration partner. But in early December, as The Times was preparing to publish this article, Facebook told congressional lawmakers that it was. An F.T.C. spokeswoman declined to comment on whether the commission agreed with Facebook’s interpretation of the service provider exception, which is likely to figure in the F.T.C.’s ongoing Facebook investigation. She also declined to say whether the commission had ever received a complete list of partners that Facebook considered service providers. But federal regulators had reason to know about the partnerships — and to question whether Facebook was adequately safeguarding users’ privacy. According to a letter that Facebook sent this fall to Senator Ron Wyden, the Oregon Democrat, PricewaterhouseCoopers reviewed at least some of Facebook’s data partnerships. The first assessment, sent to the F.T.C. in 2013, found only “limited” evidence that Facebook had monitored those partners’ use of data. The finding was redacted from a public copy of the assessment, which gave Facebook’s privacy program a passing grade over all. Mr. Wyden and other critics have questioned whether the assessments — in which the F.T.C. essentially outsources much of its day-to-day oversight to companies like PricewaterhouseCoopers — are effective. As with other businesses under consent agreements with the F.T.C., Facebook pays for and largely dictated the scope of its assessments, which are limited mostly to documenting that Facebook has conducted the internal privacy reviews it claims it had.”
  3. DD got a message from Amazon that "The Complete Harry Potter Collection" (Kindle Edition) is available on Amazon for 99 cents. We are trying to buy it, but when we click on "Buy at Pottermore" the price is incredibly high. I made screen shots of 2 pages on Amazon, showing the $0.99 price. Question: How can I contact Amazon Customer Service, for help in purchasing this at the advertised price of 99 cents? https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Harry-Potter-Collection-ebook/dp/B005CRP9IE/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1470834973&sr=1-1&keywords=the+complete+harry+potter+collection#nav-subnav TIA! Lanny
  4. Last night, I needed to buy the 10th grade English textbook for DD. The supply is decreasing and the prices are increasing and she will need the book soon. Almost all of the books I buy are on Amazon, but I wanted to pay with my Paypal Balance and Amazon doesn't accept PayPal. A childhood friend has purchased several books on AbeBooks, but they don't accept PayPal. Then, I remembered Alibris. They accept PayPal. Before I placed the order, I checked on RetailMeNot and they had a Discount Code for 15% off. The textbook was $30 plus shipping, so we saved $4.50 with the Discount Code. NOTE: I have seen, looking at the same textbook, from the same Seller, on Amazon, and on AbeBooks, sometimes it is a little more or a little less on AbeBooks. For this textbook, one Seller had it on AbeBooks for approximately $20 more than they listed it for on Amazon.
  5. I was hoping that Amazon.com would have a special price on the "TI-84 Plus CE Graphing Calculator" that I wanted/needed to buy for DD, on Prime Day, because it was shown as only available for sale to Prime Members, and I checked many times on Prime Day, but I never saw it with a lower price. This afternoon, I got an email alert from CamelCamelCamel.com that it was $88.00 (plus FL sales taxes, since our Shipping Address is in FL) for Prime members. I bought it and at this time, that's a great price on this item. This was a very pleasant surprise for me this afternoon! ETA: Topic Title was changed, from Amazon Prime, to specifically referencing this calculator, because the thread got into a conversation about the new TI-84 Plus CE that I bought from Amazon. And as of this morning (24 July 2015) WalMart.com has a low price on that calculator.
  6. I know people have their own favorites, but for those who like Dixon Ticonderoga, Amazon has them at a good price right now ($10.70 for a box of 96).
  7. If your DC use textbooks, after they are done with them, check on Amazon to see what they would give you a Credit for, if you send them in, in good condition. This morning, I received an email from Amazon about a textbook we bought used, for DD, in January, from HPB-Dallas, on Amazon, I think we paid $30.22 + $3.99 shipping. If DD was done with it, and, if were were in the USA, I could send it in to Amazon and they would give us a Credit for $28.50. I think they would pay for the shipment, within the USA, to send the textbook to them too.
  8. I was just surprised to receive one of my Amazon books for free. This probably isn't news to others, but evidently if you purchased Kindle books during a certain time period you have been given a credit towards future Kindle or other books due to a settlement. Here is the link for more information and there is a link inside to find out if you have a credit: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=help_search_1-1?ie=UTF8&nodeId=201046060&qid=1397230131&sr=1-1 It says they sent out emails the end of March, but if you use Prime to any degree, I'm sure it was overlooked.
  9. My daughter and I both received gift cards for Amazon. I have a Kindle and want to buy books for my Kindle. Since the Kindle purchases only use 1-Click, how can I use the gift cards to make Kindle purchases? I entered the code for one gift card onto my account and it put it on my balance. But it doesn't show anywhere. I don't want to buy another book only to have it go to my credit card on 1-click. Can you school this noob on the ins and outs of kindle purchases?
  10. Somehow, I always manage to get THREE 4-for-3 items in my cart. I might as well get something free, ya know? What are some good add-on items that I can keep in my shopping cart & add when I have 3 & can get the 4th free? :bigear:
  11. I am seriously considering the cheapest kindle for my 10 year old daughter. My question is about the amazon accounts. She has an account that she created one time to buy something from a gift card that someone gave her. I have an account that has amazon prime on it. I have since added her account to my amazon prime. Our financial info is not attached to her account and she's only used it 1 time. I'm a little confused about the amazon account I should set this up with. I'm thinking she'll have more options if she uses my account but maybe she can use her account. I'm just thinking trying to get this straight in my own mind. If a few years go by and we decide to upgrade to a fire (or equivalent) and then she graduates high school will we be able to switch her stuff to her own account or is that not an option. I'm just trying to understand. Thanks,
  12. I patronize Amazon on a regular basis. I usually have no problem coming up with enough to do the $25 free shipping. Many of you seem to utilize the Amazon Prime membership. At $70 (is that correct?) it seems a little pricey to me but I could very obviously be missing out on the benefits. Anyone care to enlighten me? Or, otoh, tell me why AP is not worth it to you.
  13. We have had good luck with Amazon until recently. Now it seems that they feel entirely justified in not honoring deals that they offer, even without the courtesy of providing an explanation. One case was the recent book deal that so many here had canceled. We felt that was understandable since there was clearly a pricing mistake. But today we had a deal with an Amazon reseller canceled with no explanation and there was no obvious pricing mistake involved. It was a good deal, but not an unbelievable one. Our problem is how do we express our strong displeasure over having contracts broken by Amazon at their whim. In today's case, we would like to write a negative review for the seller. But how do we do that when the order has been completely removed? IMO, it would be more appropriate for Amazon to leave the order in place and let the vendor basically "break" the deal. In that way, it is there for all to see and we can give feedback on the transaction. Does anyone have suggestions how to contact someone at Amazon with the authority to impact change within the company? Any other thoughts on this subject?
