For the sake or my sanity, can I please ask a rather daft sounding question.

If you click the link in the quote below (ie from within TMC), do you see product A below, product B below or something else? Answers in poll above.

If you see product A, can you please briefly describe your browser, ISP etc

Poll may close/be deleted without warning.

I guess I always have to be different. I go to product A, on the USA Amazon website. Running macOS 11.3 and Safari browser on a MacBook Air.

Thanks everyone, apart from the single vote above, it looks like an incorrect redirection to a different product is occurring for everyone else, but this does not seem to affect US based users.

It seems to be after some interaction with the forum software. Manually entering the URL in the browser probably yields the correct response.

Ironically, you actually have the correct product. No prize though.

Thankfully, it seems that I am not going (any more) mad. And not just me with this erroneous redirection.

Could be worse. You could have asked Alexa... :eek:

If It manually enter the URL i get the same redirection, so its amazon getting it wrong.

Thats interesting. I get no redirection so correct product.

Are you by any chance pasting something like ?

So amazon is redirecting to the UK site with the wrong product code.

Thats weird. Not what I am seeing on several different devices and networks. I think I'll stop investigating before I end up with a rabbit hole I can't get out of.
