Toddler Buys $400 Couch On Amazon, Mom Reimbursed
Ever buy something accidentally? Some of us have at some point, perhaps. However, a mom in San Diego made a big purchase on Amazon, without even knowing it until after the fact, as her toddler purchased a $400 couch with her account.
Apparently, the toddler used her mom's phone, while the Amazon app still open and used the "1-click" ordering choice to buy the couch.
According to WIVB, Isabella McNeil, of San Diego, was fully reimbursed by Amazon for the unsanctioned purchase and they will even cover the cost of any fees that are associated with giving away the furniture.
McNeil put the couch up for sale instead of sending it back, because of return fees. Amazon decided to reimburse her after they had been told what happened, however.
“Lesson learned,” McNeil told local media. She also acknowledged how easy it is to make purchases through “1-Click” ordering “Now I know it’s really dangerous and [I need] to make sure the Amazon app is closed before my daughter takes the phone. It’s just so easy.”
I think the only thing I ever bought accidentally, at my parent's expense, was a Reese's Pieces candy bag I put in our shopping cart as a kid...without their knowing!
