So for the fun of it I ordered a denso 150-2010 oil filter off amazon for my John Deere. I was hoping for the older blue style, but I got the new Chinese made black one. I said the filter wasn’t what I was expecting so they refunded me the cost and didn’t want the filter back. Thanks for the free filter amazon

They have some kind of deal now, $40 off one time renewal or extension of ‘Prime’ membership. I have to check details myself.

The OP didnt say he has prime, just saying this in case anyone is confusing the OP being able to keep his return had nothing to do with Prime, as we do not have Prime and have had the same experiences, more then once.


Amazon in many cases doesn't require returning a return item. They calculate the cost of returning and decide if they want it back or not.
I suspect if you abuse this at some point they will want it back. But whatever... *L*
It is kind of neat when it happens.

Considering the picture on Amazon shows a black filter, I don't know why you were hoping it'd be the blue one. Seems to me you gamed the system.

Maybe, but other filter brands show a different photo than the actual product received.

So getting exactly what was pictured (and described) is cause for rejection? There's something wrong with that line of thought.

Thank you, I was beginning to think I was the only one on that train of thought. Now the rest of us have to pay higher prices for stuff on Amazon because someone got exactly what was offered but had hoped they would receive something different.

Whatever next? This user is beginning to sound like another one who used to frequent the board.

That is the oil filter my 04 Camry V6 uses. There isn't anything wrong with that filter. I would wager it will wind up on your JD.

Why the heck not use them. Run a shorter OCI if you're concerned with it.

In terms of amazon giving a refund and you get to the keep the merchandise? I've heard of that a bunch of times now. Somehow they still churn a profit. crazy

Amazon just does the math. On a small item, the cost of the return, processing, and selling the returned item, usually at a deep discount, often exceeds the cost of the item. So they let you keep it, and actually save a buck or two.

The " not what I expected ... " when the picture shows the correct filter, is a lame excuse for returning it though ...

Karma is coming ... this will be the filter that fails and takes out the OP's engine .

I'm sure that is a decent filter as well. Run it.
