Think the trick of ordering a pre release blu ray to the basket to bring the spend over £20 still works.
Maximum of 3 for each order it seems..

Thanks @dude added one, Hoping it says in stock until i make my order up
Missed this last time but ordered 3
With this being an add-on item, you won't be able to manually cancel any orders that you make to qualify for the £20. The system throws up a message saying that the add-on items also need returning to Amazon. It's happened to me when I got advised the same thing that is mentioned in the OP. You have to contact their customer services and request that they do it. It was quite a hassle getting it cancelled and put me off ever doing it again.
cracking but think thyve got to the alexa loop still hot tho

Before everyone gets carried away with this one they are not bath towels …Before everyone gets carried away with this one they are not bath towels check the size stated 70x20cm the quality is not that good still at 69p they are worth it note it will only let you order 3.


Respectfully disagree.
Size is 70x120cm but you could make 6 in 70x20 if you want.

It was some time earlier last year - 2017. When you say that you've done it loads before in the past, were the items you ordered actual 'Add-on' items which are only dispatched with orders of £20+ ? I'm not referring to standard non-prime items, they are specifically Add-on items. If so, then maybe I was just unlucky, but I did attempt to cancel it myself numerous times through my amazon account and the system wouldn't allow it.

Oh right early 2017, im pretty sure its worked for me since then. Yep definitely add-on items i've done it dozens of times. I see you said the error message was 'add-on items will have to returned' maybe that's the difference then because i always cancel the pre-order item before anything is dispatched iirc

If you cancel pre order do they still send out stuff. And how long do you wait

yep the add-on items remain as a separate order and they usually arrive bundled with whatever my next parcel is from amazon. i have prime so usually arrives next day or a few days if i choose no-rush delivery.
note i buy a lot from amazon so always have several open orders at any one time although im not sure that would make any difference

Ahh, maybe that was why. I had definitely received the order prior to me attempting to cancel the pre-order. I didn't think you could cancel prior to the dispatch itself as I thought the whole order including the Add-ons would've been cancelled too.

Thanks for the tip on the add on loophole,will have to remember this on future add on orders,but isn't it stupid you have to go to these lengths on these type of orders coming to a minimum of £20 just because of amazons strict policy.

No problem, glad it helped.

I agree it's annoying but I can definitely see it from amazon's perspective as it states "add-on items are low cost items that would be cost prohibitive to sell on their own". Even for a company of their size with all the postage discounts they probably get i'm sure it would still be impossible to sell these things individually without losing money so i guess it's fair enough
I know this is gone but In future if you add a pre order film with addons then cancel after they deliver.

Did you get a warning message.

No don't think so but i don't remember tbh. Never been charged more or had any problems though.
Pretty sure amazon know it's going on though so I guess could change at any time
My 3 have just been dispatched, although strangely they have decided them to ship the three separately in their own packages.

And by Hermes too; never had one from them before on Amazon?
Just had mine come through, from a Linens Limited? What's even stranger is that the invoice is inside, all at £0.00 each..

Have Amazon fulfilled this through a third party then? Never had that before.
