My wife got a Kindle. I personally can't stand them, but hey, whatever.

So, for her first book, I went to my Amazon account and bought her a book she would enjoy on an upcoming trip.

I bought it as "Send as a Gift" and put her @free.kindle.com email account as the recipient.

So far, nothing, nada. I figure Amazon would either bounce an email to her real email account, or send the book to her Kindle, or tell me, "Hey, don't use this address" but now I'm thinking they took my $$$ and ran with it like the evil company that they are.

Thoughts?

Nevermind. I actually found a phone number for Kindle support, talked to some guy in India after waiting 1 minute, and he did his job, and he did it well, and my wife got her book. It took some finagling and digital jury-rigging, including another purchase that was then canceled, but it worked.




Much easier to go to the bookstore, next time.
