On 14 Sept. 2016 I set about using Amazon's 'Gift Card' and voucher for the first time. At age 84 this was a daunting task and I'm afraid I made a mess of the procedure, necessitating this request for a refund.My first action was to add £50 to my Amazon TopUp, thinking that credit would be used to pay for the gift voucher I was about to order (Reference #202-5826124-3305947). That action was paid for using my VISA Debit card ...............6222.I then ordered a gift voucher and suitable card (Reference #202-1860871-3589158). To my surprise, that action was also debited to my VISA Debit card .............6222.Being unhappy with the way things were going, I repeated the order for the voucher and card (Reference #205-0111396-1693143). To my surprise I was invited to pay for that also, using my VISA Debit card ..............6222.By then, I was aware that I should perhaps quit this process, before getting any deeper.
As I was content with the both voucher and gift card, I printed both and posted them to
the intended recipient.It will be appreciated that this process has cost me £150, NOT the intended £50. I request
therefore that the orders placed by reference #202-5826124-3305947 and
#202-1860871-3589158 be cancelled and the cost thereof £100 be refunded.This request would not be complete without an apology for the trouble I have caused, together with a suggestion that the process for using an A/C TopUp to pay for a gift voucher should be fully explained to avoid the elderly getting in a muddle.Message ends.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Have you contacted amazon directly about this issue?

I thought my email was to Amazon direct.

I think so but I can't remember accurately, due to memory problems associated with my age.

Ok can you confirm though that you made a purchase through of a gift card through the amazon site that you would like refunded? I just want to make sure we go to the proper place to get your refund.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The purchase was of a voucher and accompanying colourful card.

My wife has just called me down to lunch! Alright if I go?

Yes that is fine. When you have a moment go to the following page

Next under where is says select an issue choose "cancel or change an order" Next choose the phone option which will connect you to customer service who should be able to look up the details and refund any additional money you paid.

Thanks Chris for the offer to take up the cudgels again, should that prove necessary.

You are very welcome.

I am satisfied that Amazon have this matter in hand an that a full refund is in the pipeline.
I shall therefore end this conversation. 'Bye.
