Dear Customer,

Greetings from Amazon.co.uk.

We are writing to confirm that we are processing your refund in the amount of £0.01 for your Order 203-3964134-8577916.

Wow! A whole penny! I wonder how much will be left after my credit card company has deducted its currency conversion fee...?

 :laugh:  Wow.
I have a collection.
It can be found here.
No need to check it often.
I update it only twice a year!

Reminds me of the one penny refund check the phone company sent me when I fired them.

Never tried to cash it, figured I'd screw with their balance sheet.

Is it because of the Pre-order Price Guarantee? This is sure not a big refund as you said your CC will eat that money with the conversion fee. At least when I got one from Amazon Canada it is more than one cent, last one I got for Shiver was 1.04$... now this is big money :thumbup:

It is indeed a pre-order price guarantee.

Oooo...you're loaded now.  Don't spend that all in one place.  ;)

I've had some of those refunds that were like fifty cents or so a few times.  I have gotten some that were a few dollars.
