Boy isn't that the truth! I've been totally spoiled by Amazon's stellar CS. When I talked to the Kobo rep on Sunday I asked about their return policy - I was told that you can only return it if it's faulty/broken! So not product satisfaction guarentee???

I can put the tracking number into the USPS website, and it shows the kobo is in Toronto.

Forgot to ask, what state are you in?? I'm on the East Coast so I wonder if the 4-10 business days is for anywhere in the U.S. or specific to your location?

I love this reader! Even better than the Glo. The screen is beautiful and it's a joy to read on. I like the larger screen size. Really nice device (and getting t a week earlier than I expected is sweet!)
Selina4books - you've been holding out on us!! We need details!!!

I telephoned requesting status and was asked to wait "one minute" and the rep returned 27 minutes later with all the canned talking points. Sorry, blah, blah.

I've had customer service problems with them before (ebooks) but thought I'd give them one more try.

My mistake.

Go Amazon...
Sadly that sounds very reminiscent of my experience...it's definately leaving a bad taste in my mouth...

I ordered mine on the 16th, the charge was posted to my credit card on the 19th.

I contacted Kobo asking for the order status yesterday, and was told the order was "in progress," and when I asked specifically if it was shipped, I was told it was not.

Today I received a shipment email at about noon. I clicked on the tracking number, and it said delivered. I looked outside, and sure enough the box was sitting outside my front door.

They supposedly have a 30-day return policy but I've never heard them disclose it is conditional on a faulty/inoperative device (at least not to me).

Cancelling may be the better choice.

I'm not a lawyer but the questionable statement is this one:

Items that can be returned may be refunded up to 30 days from their shipment date.

"Can" being their definition.

This gives me slight hope that my Aura will be waiting for me when I get home. I have yet to receive a shipping notification. Despite the lack of shipping email, I had hoped to receive the reader by Wednesday.

Happy to hear you did not have any problems. If you haven't already, please post your impressions.

Did you happen to notice that it says "Items that CAN be returned...." They don't identify what can be versus can't be returned...and what's up with the "30 days from shipment date"??

I was hoping the same, but alas, no Aura HD on my doorstep! Can't wait to see it.
