Do you use Amazon promotional credit? If so, you may wish to check your balance

Found 31st Jan 2016
Hi all,

Just a heads up. I was looking to spend my Amazon promo credit that I accrued when they had the £3 no-rush offer rather than £1. A lot of these vouchers had a 31st Jan expiry date so will run out today.

However, when I checked my balance, I noticed it was a lot lower than I expected. I then went back and reconciled all my orders where I accrued credit, and where I had spent it since the end of November, and found out I was at least £25 short in credit amount!! Cue stroppy note to Amazon

I may not be the only one affected, so please have a look at your balance, esp if you had a large amount in there

I had some credit yesterday and today it's not there. Apparently expiry date of 31st Jan means they expire on start of 31st Jan.

Contact them on web chat and they will fix it for you.

Amazon: I've checked and see that the promotional credit on your account is expired. It was supposed to be expired by the end of the day today. But due to the technical issue, it has expired early. We've already escalated this issue and our technical team is looking into this as many of our customers are affected.
In this case, I'll go ahead and add the promotional certificate on your account manually for use towards your next order.
Feel better now burning through the £60 I had yesterday. Would have been raging waiting til the last day to clear the balance and finding the credit gone.
