In October last year I reported that amazon.co.uk had dropped its silly price for A Guide to English Language Usage and was selling it at the UK list price of £24.90. that was after I had myself used the option on the page to report a lower price at Waterstones.
I spoke too soon. Though it undoubtedly was on sale at the list price, I found on a recent visit that it was up again to £36.88. Another report of a lower price got it down to £36.26. You Save: £0.62 (2%). Wow!
What can I do? I have posted a customer review (click to enlarge).
The message about Amazon’s price will be included in an advertisement that I am sending to Modern English Teacher.
I am also very unhappy about the cover image but a complaint has elicited this response:
Greetings from Amazon.co.uk,
Thank you for giving us feedback on images through our Image Feedback Form. We have reviewed your submission for the following product:
A Guide to English Language Usage
We have determined that no change needs to be made to the product image you have specified. However, if you are the rightsholder for this product, please visit www.amazon.co.uk/images to find instructions for providing a replacement image.
But it’s not so easy. To change the image through that URL you have to have a vendor account. So I have uploaded my own image with an explanatory caption. The problem is that this image isn’t displayed on the page for the book. It requires clicking on a special link.
But it seems to be the best that I can do.
