Today, is a colleagues baby shower and of course I forgot to adequately plan ahead to get a gift! I had an idea to get get a Amazon Gift card a few weeks back but put it off until the day of! The thought of just giving a printed off card vs an actual gift card has a kind of gift “degradation” to it, but I’m outta time so I’m left with no choice.
What I need to ask myself, is why did I think Amazons Gift Card buying process would be anything but amazing?? This company time and time again slaps me in the face with their ability to be different in ways that seem to simple buy inspire me to do things like this, dedicate a blog post to them!
I have another instance where someone I know was looking to buy a mid range karaoke machine and she was calling all around Halifax looking but no where had them, they either carried the $50 cheap one or add the Double-0′s $5,000 Pro one. Amazon we went and when she found one, she had questions about it. She said hmmm I wonder who I can call about this and I instantly laughed at the thought of calling Amazon but then thought WAIT! This company does everything different, maybe you should give it a shot! To not bore you with the details their system for “Contact Us” is A+ and highly recommended!
I could go on and on about this topic, I’ve used Audible for a long time, Kathryn loves using her Kindle, the instances where Amazon is always there for me is endless. I would like to see them have more of a local presence, like maybe offer a local category where you can shop for things produced in your local area; and I would not be surprised if that idea hasn’t been rolled across their idea table before. I purchased The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon with one of my Audible credits and need to find the time to listen.
