Return items purchased on amazon


We are so used to ordering something with one tap that sometimes we order things accidentally on the Internet.

While I was browsing iPad mini cases in the Amazon app on my Apple tablet. I got a message that my Yippee Series spring light pink smart cover was on its way. I wasn’t thinking pink or even smart cover when I was dressing my iPad mini despite the very cheery-sounding name. I wish I could say that this was the first time such a thing has happened to me. On concord, I have accidentally downloaded more than one book for my Kindle in the past.
