I recently ordered some books from Packt Publishers from their website. They outsourced the printing to a company called Lightning Source who shipped the books through UPS transport. Original invoice amount for books was Rs. 9236 plus shipping charges of Rs. 550. The Packt FAQ mentions no more extra charges for India (See FAQ screenshot). However, UPS courier charged Rs. 5790 extra, which is around 62 percent extra over the original amount of Rs. 9236.
Samsung had published special prizing for mobiles on the Samsung byod website and it was till Dec 6th. I was just trying to buy it in last moment. Unfortunately the prizes were reverted back to regular offers not at 12, BUT 10 minutes before at 11.30 PM. Hence I lost the deals. I took a screenshot anyway. Was this a technical glitch or a purposeful cheating? I am waiting for a reply from Samsung.
I have an yearly basic subscription with PacktPub Mapt and I am supposed to read books and see videos. My subscription is valid until Feb 2019. However, on July 2018, I was suddenly not able to see videos or read books. There is no option in the website to rais a support ticket. Only option available to try was to send a mail to the email email@example.com. I even tweeted to them.
