My Rights

Dear All,

Have a bit of a problem that I hope you can help me with. I brought Imation 100CD-R on a spindle holder from It arrived but the spindle was broken and 3CD-R were in pieces. I did not drop or throw the parcel and it was not even in a cardboard box. It was wrapped in plastic I've sent it back to them,but I'm scared they will blame me

does anybody know my rights?

I reckon they'll believe you. Though obvious, did you include a written note with the reason for return?

Next time I suggest you first email their support with the problem. They usually reply with an RMA number & you take it from there. G

P.S. On second thoughts, if it's only 3 broken next time just ask me nicely & I'll send you 3x CD-Rs (not Imation though) for free :-)

As Crossbow7 stated, you should have notified Amazon before you sent the item back. Amazon would have dealt with this in an amicable way.

I don't know what you paid for the spindle, but I normally pay very little for 100, and in a case of three broken ones (or coasters) I would have put it down to experience, it would have been perhaps cheaper and more convenient.

Cheapest on amazon including P/P £13:10 which equates to 13 pence each,i know there are principles involved but sometimes, is it really worth the hassle of sending them back!!!

I have notified Amazon before sending it , I went to my account and then clicked on the order reference and hit return I typed the reason and it printed off a label and barcode and i followed the instructions. I would of kept it but the base of the spindle got attached from the rod and the plastic that it normally around the bottom was undone, they sent my a product if bad condition that is why I sent it back. I did not pay for postage. The best thing I found was if you want a replacement from them you have to pay for that even before they recieve the broken goods.

Thank you all for your help, i will keep you posted on this matter until the very end

Did you not see the state of them through the plastic when the delivery driver handed them to you? and pointed it out to him/her

Hope they signed for it as "Unchecked", this will probably not matter in this case but something to remember in future

  Forum Member2 22:31 11 Apr 2008

I am sorry but i didn't really understand

Hope they signed for it as "Unchecked",

usually when a parcell is delivered the driver asks you to sign for it, (sometimes they will not leave it without a signature) When you sign for it on their machine, always write "Unchecked" as you will find that most times you are signing to say it was delivered in good condition.
