    Anyone here ever apply for an Amazon MasterCard ? I was interested for the interest-free instant spend plus gift card.

    While I was told that I was eligible and that they’d be back to me "shortly" after submitting the application, I’ve heard nothing some 26 hours later.

    In this day and age of instant gratification, this seems extravagant. Anyone ?

    I suppose I should check my junk mail, just in case.

    Yeah, I think that's the one I have. It's where you can choose either a generic 5% back or if the total is enough, 6 months no interest, something like that. I don't know about they're not getting back to you yet though. It's been quite a while since I got mine, so I can't remember if it took longer than that.

    Thanks. It’s a bit odd in an age where these sort of decisions are made near-instantly. Besides "shortly" means shortly in anyone's language.

    You are absolutely right! Why, just the other day I was trying to explain to a young lady that 'shortly' was not necessarily a bad thing... [​IMG]

    As another aside, I just experienced being blocked by Amazon.ca for some Kate Bush vinyl. This is the first time this has happened to me, and not even crossing an ocean.
    I have never been blocked from Amazon.uk before, maybe that's next on the menu.

    I was browsing amazon.co.uk this morning because I have a promo code that's expiring soon. I'd say about 1/3 of the items I looked at (blu rays and cds) indicated they could not be shipped to the U.S. The only thing I could identify as a pattern is that if I was looking to buy something that would have been called a "parallel import" many decades ago, the item was blocked. Items that are only available in the U.S. as an import were all fine to order. So maybe amazon.co.uk is trying to stop selling items to U.S. customers when we have an option to buy the equivalent item domestically.

    Yes, domestically at a much higher price. Turn Out The Lights, the party's over for better pricing.

    So far, although it's been a while, in the past when Amazon UK itself was selling the item, they would always allow shipping to the US and the shipping for just about everything was 3 GBP. And, of course without the VAT, which was nice. I haven't tried to buy anything very recently, but when OTHER sellers were selling the same item, I would say most times they would not ship to the US. Or, they would indicate on the list of sellers page that they do 'International Shipping'

    If that changes the next time I try to buy something there, I will come back here and mention it.

    Just go to their site and browse and you will see this change on items sold and shipped by amazon. It's definitely a relatively new practice as I think the first time I encountered it was in the middle of last year.

    Amazon.ca has been blocking the majority of their stuff from the us for about a year.

    It's actually frustrating. I had to browse for a couple of hours to find stuff I wanted that they would ship to the U.S. In the meantime, I found lots of European releases of cds that in the past I would have been able to buy that were all now "unable to ship" to me, and in many cases they prices were significantly less than Amazon's domestic prices.

    Makes sense, It's probably more than a year that I've bought anything from them, but I used to get vinyl box sets at much lower cost than amazon.us.

    This past Christmas was a very good year for vinyl box sets from amazon.uk. I probably bought around 6 or 7 of them during a two week period.

    Might have something to do with Brexit? why are these issues popping now? I don't recall any new laws or restrictions on global purchasing choices.
