I was wondering whether anyone had experience with or could offer advice on shipping a Kindle (or possibly any other electronic device) back to the US.
I accidentally ordered the incorrect Kindle (a standard 4 rather than Touch) and it was too late to cancel/change the order before it was sent. I then confirmed Amazon will take the return of the original one (and apparently even pay for return postage!).
The problem came when I went to the Post Shop to send this one back - they claimed that as it had a lithium ion battery in it that it needed to be sent by International Courier, at the cost of $65!
Can they be serious??!! I'm not willing to pay that amount, and I'm sure Amazon won't be keen on paying that. Considering Amazon didn't send it by courier, why do I need to return it by this means? The package hasn't even been opened, so it's just the same as it was when originally sent.
Any advice is appreciated.
