I'm in the Baltimore area, and got a hair tie the first go around. Second time got the R7.
Thanks for the encouragement! ;)
How hard a time did you have getting the real R7 the second time?

It wasn't too bad. I called Amazon 1-888-280-4331 and told the rep what happened. At first she wanted me to return the package (with the hair band), but I told her it would be difficult to send it back so she checked with someone who gave her the OK to skip that part. So, they just shipped out a replacement, which took 2-3 days to arrive. I've checked my credit card account to make sure I didn't get charged twice and to make sure there wasn't going to be an issue with me not sending the hair band back.

Incidentally, since I knew this problem was occurring when I got delivery and saw it obviously was not and R7 I did not open the package in case they were going to question if I switched things. Others have said it didn't become an issue, but there was at least one person on this board that was given a hard time when he called.

Good luck!

Have them send a pickup tag for the hair ties if they’re adamant. Why is this a thing with them?
I was going to get a couple for the kids, but didn’t because of this bs. Price match with Best Buy easy IF 2 in stock.

Ive never gotten the wrong item from Amazon. Although I have had missing items or damaged items a few times. They've always corrected whatever issues I've had.

For those who got hair ties, just let them know that it's a pain to send it back. They aren't going to insist too much.

Be careful here, since Amazon told me the same thing, but a few weeks later I received a notification that they still have not received the R7 (hair tie) and they will charge me the full amount. I had to call and explain the whole situation again and wait for the foreign rep to check with someone to approve and "fix" the issue. I still didn't feel comfortable with their answers, so I asked to get transferred to a US rep, which was able to give me a better peace of mind about it. Guess I'll find out on Mar 29th if they actually fixed the problem, since that is the date I'm supposed to get charged again. 🤞

Absolutely, still have the sealed hair band package and will be checking my credit card account periodically. Thanks.

I also live in the Baltimore area and my package was also supposed to come in two days. However when the package was 3 stops from my house because I was tracking it on the Amazon app they suddenly said that something wrong happened and the delivery man drove back to the distribution center. I am suspecting that it was because it was hairties. They then offered to issue a refund or send out a new R7 which they did the 2nd time around.

That's good you didn't have to call and explain anything. Hopefully eventually Amazon will figure out what's going on.
