My book arrived exactly as described, in shrink wrap with the computer access code. I'll be using this book in college fot my Communication Essentials course so I'm happy that it is of such good quality.

Dear Amazon,
I received it on time; however, the Student Access Code (pin code) was missing, which supposedly comes with every new book.
So, I sent request Pin code number by e-mail since I need it for my course.
I got one reply saying that he or she is trying to solve the issue, but I STILL haven't got my pin code, which I need for my course.
it has been a week without getting my pin code number.
I stent $12.98 for delivery because I need the text book & pin code as soon as possible.
Now, I'm behind then my classmates. I might have to buy pin code at our school book store again.

I trusted Amazon site, so I ordered through it.
I really disappointed this outcome.
I don't think I will go back to Amazon again.

---This is my requesting letter ----
I just received ": A Journey, Canadian Edition with MyCanadianCompLab"
The ad said, bought this text book and never took the class.
This book looked like a new book, but where is Student Access Code Card that provides with this text book?

Would you sent me pin code number by e-mail as soon as possible please.
If this book does not include Student Access Code Card, it is NOT a new book, isn't it?
I trusted Amazon, so I ordered through it.
I already paid $67, I don't want to pay extra for Pin code, which supposedly comes with every new text book.

I want to get this issue solved for you as soon as possible. I am leaving the house at 1 and will not be back until 10 pm, so hopefully you receive my previous e-mails before then and we are able to solve it.
