There is a section for you to return the extra items that you not charged for. its under the refund section.

There's only one way out of this. Sell the other 3 cheap to RFD'ers and claim you just got the one.

What does it say in your account, 1 or 4? If 1, return it, keep 2 for yourself, resell 1. :)
I hate to speculate. I hate to forecast. I am just proactive.

If I remember correctly, you get to keep them all.

Online chat with them. They probably ask you to throw them away. In current environment, its irresponsible to ask customers to mail them back

I PMed you my address so you can throw to my backyard

Amazon is known to just throw returns away sometimes. Probably more likely to happen given the current situation.

Keep it.
They don't have any records to properly receive it back into their inventory management system.
It will have to be adjusted when they do a cycle count.

I once ordered a folding bed frame from Amazon and received one on two consecutive days. Didn’t need two, so chatted with the csr and she asked me to return one which I did. She thanked me!

Not returning the extras is technically still theft... However what I would do is contact Amazon about it, they may just tell you they don't want them back/you don't need to send them back.

Inform them, they likely won't ask for it back, and you'll sleep better :)

Return one. Keep three and do whatever you want with them.

It happened to me with the Bay. Ordered one Le Creuset and was shipped three ... All same tracking number but and received the same day. So I kept all and sold off two.

This is the right answer. It happened to me before. Although it was not something as awesome as ssd's, my family got 12 boxes of various cereals. (only ordered 4 various) 8kg's of peanut butter (only ordered 2) 4 HUGE boxes of microwave popcorn, 4 kgs of raisins, 4 big bags of marshmallows, and a couple of other things. Opened up a chat with them and was told to keep the extras. My pantry was rather full for a while, lol.

do you think amazon will mark the 4 extra items as stolen, and shitlist the serial numbers so that any attempt to RMA them will result in an alert and denial of service with the manufacturer?
