Crap: AmieStreet is shutting down and taking my credit with it

without comments

AmieStreet is shutting down … and I have $125 in purchase credit there.

Dear Poojan Wagh,

As of September 22, 2010 all AmieStreet.com pages will be forwarded to Amazon.com and you will no longer be able to use AmieStreet.com or any of its services.

The folks at Amazon have been our advisers since they invested in Amie Street almost four years ago, and as a small thank you for your loyalty and support we’re giving you a $5 promotional code* to spend at the Amazon MP3 store. Simply click here and enter this code: 72UV-46HJUK-2YPBSW. The promotional code must be redeemed by December 1, 2010.

Regarding your Amie Street account, please make sure you download all of your purchased music by September 22, 2010 (the music you have previously downloaded will continue to play normally). If you have credit in your AmieStreet.com account, please make sure you spend your remaining balance before September 22, 2010 as it will not transfer over to Amazon.com.

If you have any questions, concerns or thoughts you’d like to share with us, please don’t hesitate to contact us at feedback@amiestreet.com and one of us will answer you personally.

We believe we’ve found a great home for AmieStreet.com and are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible for you, our fantastic customers.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your support, help, patience and enthusiasm, and we sincerely hope you’ll continue with us on our journey with the new Songza.com.

Thanks for an incredible four years!

– Elias, Elliott, Eric, Josh and Peter

Son of a bitch.

If anyone has any music to recommend it, please do so now. I only have 3 weeks to spend my credit. At least I didn’t pay full-price for it.

Thanks a lot, AmieStreet, for giving me 3 weeks notice. I guess the $5 Amazon MP3 credit ain’t bad, though.
