bought some bosch glow plugs...

Well, this is interesting, I seem to be set with Bosch glow plugs. I ordered 5 from Amazon, for 10 bucks each. They split the order and shipped 4 in one and a single in the other. The single arrived tonight... a single box of 10! Wonder if the other 4 with be 4 or 40....

You could email amazon and tell them and amazon miight let you keep them.
Amazon ought to at least pay the shipping back to them.

Call the original seller. Sometimes they will just have you keep them and they just adjust their inventory to reflect the new number. Actually comes out to less expense for them.

Call to sleep with a clear conscience, but I bet they'll let you keep them. I would think with all their tech, an auto-analysis would be running to quickly show lost profit between purchases and sales. I thought they tracked every item thru the supply chain. Probably a muff-up by the employee who picks from the supply shelves and he/she has already been terminated.

Maybe an MB diesel lover that hates his employer. I once purchased a final closeout of some retailer Bosch 80007? GPs said price was 4 bucks each for 10 got twelve or so. I figured they listed the amount of plugs wrong but wanted a certain amount for the last of their inventory.

I take it the order was filled to your satisfaction ,could be the soul who had to fill the order looked at the image on the box. THE SUPER SIZED IMAGE as part of the packaging seems to represent what the package holds inside the box to this one worker .It most likley is an employee who has messed up higher priced items before , given the least valued items as product to pull and fill..Prize in a box in your case.
