i just think the amazon review system shouldnt be able to be manipulated like this. if they had shit reviews i wouldnt have bought them

tbh they were only like a fiver cheaper than the real ones so serves me right for being so pikey. although i am up £45 now

Yeah, that's for sure a cunt move Swede (by you, if that's not clear).

You should've either:
a) refused the gift card and stuck to your review; OR
b) accepted the gift card on the basis that the review will have an edit to say that the seller responded positively to your negative feedback by offering a gift card; OR
c) accepted the gift card and removed the review completely.

Sounds like based on your 'moral' stance about reviews being manipulated, option b) was your go-to.

Wow - shows what type of bloke you are. How you are even defending this goes to show the level of narcissism you have reached.

long story is that i left a snobby review on some 3rd party printer cartridges (£30) i bought as they threw up an error on my printer after 3 months (outside of return period)… The seller then emailed me saying please change it and I will send you an amazon gift card for (£45). I said i wouldnt change it until i got the gift card… So i got the gift card and spent it but havent changed the comment because the seller can get fucked (or am i the asshole?)

i also reported him to amazon and got the money back for the cartridges anyway lol

Wow.

I was thinking the same. Swede trying to be funny? He can't be that much of a cunt surely?

this is fair. my only qualm is that it ruins the integrity of the amazon platform. but i guess if he sorted it with a gift card then its fine. i will amend the review

How does it ruin the integrity of amazon platform? Laughing out loud

You could have said no to the gift card and left your bad review up if you cared about integrity Laughing out loud

Swede you little hustler Cool

Request - can any graphic design fukers knock a quick logo together for me for a street food business. Not looking for anything fancy but can chuck some cash your way.

Thanks
