According to a report from Android Authority, a Reddit users was getting refunds for its Galaxy Note 7 accessories purchases from Amazon.
I just got off a chat with support for amazon requesting a refund on the wireless charger dock and case I bought for my note 7. I bought them back a week before the phone initially launched and they were both well outside the 30 day return window but it seems like they’re treating this as a special scenario and sent me return labels for those 2 items. Would have otherwise been about $90 bucks down the drain.
