Amazon/MP3 advice needed
« on: November 26, 2018, 02:08:30 PM »
OK, so Miss I's birthday is approaching. Normally I buy her a book and get AMazon to deliver it. This year I am opting for music and was thinking of getting Amazon to deliver a CD. However, CDs are a tad old-fashioned and the thing I selected has an MP3 option instead (as I don't think she has anything like a CD player).

BUT when I click through to the purchase and checkout option on Amazon there seems to be no facility to a)route the MP3 download to her e mail address or b) specify a delivery date.

What am I doing wrong?

Probably everything... ::)

I've never tried doing what you want tho... In fact I haven't actually downloaded any music from Amazon for years now... I'm guessing Miss I may be savvy enough to get music without paying for it too...

Send her an Amazon voucher...?

Amazon send me 1 vouchers for postponing deliveries and I use them to buy MP3's.  You just get a file download and seems there's no copy protection on it so it should be routable on by email

But how would she then know you've not done a BM and just stolen it

But google reveals that Amazon are already on the case so this should work:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201482710

Well, whatever nevermind

You can use your Amazon user name and password to log-in to any Amazon account, .com .de .fr .es, etc. It is often cheaper for me to buy from Germany or Spain than the UK...

But I think you need a US address and credit card to 'fool' Amazon that you live elsewhere...

Mrs K has a USA Amazon account.  Well she did,  maybe they've closed it as it hasn't been used for yonks and she's probably forgotten the login
