Subject: Your Inquiry


I’m truly sorry to hear that the item you received didn’t include a cardboard cover (or “o-sleeve”).

Please note that the cardboard cover was only available for a limited number of this item. And unfortunately, we are unable to send you the individual cardboard cover to you.

So, if you’re interested in keeping the “Fantasia / Fantasia 2000 (Four-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)” with the slight damage, I’d like to offer you a refund of $2.79, which is 10% off the price. To accept this refund, let us know and we’ll issue the refund to your Visa card.

If the above solution is not satisfactory, I suggest you to return the item for a full refund.

If you’d prefer to return the item for a full refund, please visit our Online Returns Center:

If you wish to receive a refund of $2.79 please let us know so that we’ll look into it and help you better.

I just sent the following email to

Selected Order Items: Fantasia / Fantasia 2000 (Four-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)

My copy of Fantasia I received I suspect is used.
It didn’t have the cardboard slipcase like the pictures had in the description.
It didn’t have the normal Blu-ray/DVD sticker (like the stickers that say “security device enclosed” if you had purchased it at a store) on the top edge of the case stating what title of the movie was.
The shrink wrap used on the Blu-ray case did not look like it came from the manufacturer.
There was no Disney Rewards code located in the case.
The Blu-ray advertisement inserts in the case were VERY bent/crinkled.
Both of the Blu-ray disks in were scratched (the 2 DVDs in the case were not).

Excellent cust service from ZoverstocksUSA (Amazon 3rd party seller)

I purchased a CD from ZoverstocksUSA (a third party) on Amazon.
The CD was badly scratched, sticky and the case was torn inside….

Order Placed: November 10, 2009
Shipping estimate: November 12, 2009 – November 13, 2009
Delivery estimate: November 18, 2009 – December 4, 2009

It took awhile for it to arrive. It shipped from the UK. Interesting that there name contains USA when there in the UK….

Sent the following email via Amazon’s contact seller page:

“You had listed the album as “Condition: Used – Very Good”.
The cardboard case was badly torn inside.
Both cds were sticky.
Both were badly scratched.
One was so badly scratched that it won’t play through all the way. It just skips and skips.
I would either like a replacement or my monies* refunded.
Thank you.”

Amazon’s auto reply after hitting send said:
“Important Message
Thank you! Your message was sent to the seller and a copy was sent to the e-mail address on your account. The seller will respond to you directly via e-mail.”

*Haha! Yes I did send an email that said “monies”.

I received the nicest email ever (seriously) back from them:

We have a further copy in stock, which will be checked thoroughly and sent for despatch today. Regarding the item in question – we would ask that you dispose of it as you see fit.

Once again, please accept our apologies, and thank you for your custom and your patience.
