AIBU to want all my money back?

My son wanted a green hoodie so I went on amazon and ordered him one. This is for the school disco and it is important that it is neon green.

Received the "neon green" hoodie today and it is actually yellow so I contacted them to say I received the wrong item.

They're telling me the yellow one I have received is green and that if I want to return it I'll have to pay the return postage myself and they'll refund my money once they've received it back.

It was only £7.99 so I probably won't bother, especially as the return postage will cost a fair chunk of that. But AIBU to think it is incredibly cheeky to send me the wrong item, try to convince me I'm colour blind and have actually received the correct item, and then try and make me pay for return postage???

Reading it back I realise I'm pathetic to get so worked up by this but I feel so insulted they're trying to tell me is green!

That looks like lime green on my phone

Hmm, it's a lighter green than the pic. Shame they don't do free returns. Annoying!

Sorry but looks neon green to me. .

The tops in the pictures BOTH look green to me...

It looks neon green from the pics you have posted. Definitely not yellow

It's a limey yellow. Definitely not the same as the sale photo.

I agree with you OP, it looks highlighter yellow.

wash it with something blue and leaky?

It's lime green. Does it glow in the dark?

It is green. I held it up to someone on the other side of the room and he said "why are you showing me a green thing?"

ImperialBlether Fri 30-Jun-17 15:00:28

It's green, OP!

Looks yellow to me! I'd be annoyed, but as you say unless you want to get into a battle over 8 quid its not worth the hassle is it?

Is it really green?? To me it only looks yellow.

Here's another pic where I have put something neon green on it for reference.

I'd have said the one you have is neon green, but that's not the colour in the picture on the website, which is a more greeny green.

DrablittleCrab Fri 30-Jun-17 15:02:33

They both look green to me. Not the same shade of green mind.

Can't add pics for some reason...

toastandbutterandjam Fri 30-Jun-17 15:02:55

It's definitely a different shade to what the sale photo shows. It reminds me of the colour of a Hi Vis jacket. Some will call it green, others yellow.

Hope your son enjoys his disco regardless! smile

Looks green to me too. Lighter than the original, but on my laptop it's green and definitely not yellow.

Oh god I really must be colour blind then!

AtHomeDadGlos Fri 30-Jun-17 15:04:25

That hoodie is definitely yellow.

This is like that dress that people saw as different colours. The Daily Mail will love this thread.

It looks yellow in the photo of the whole thing. I would send that picture and say you had expected something green to more closely match the picture - maybe print the picture out as well as a comparison

Booboobooboo84 Fri 30-Jun-17 15:04:36

It is a green one but it's not the one in the pics. Is the zipper the same? File with Amazon as item not as described and see what happens

Oh okay OP, you're last picture looks a sort of bright lemon yellow. So in view of that picture yanbu to want your money back.
