BBB promotes truth in advertising by contacting advertisers whose claims conflict with the BBB Code of Advertising.

BBB asks advertisers to prove their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating Overview
BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.
|Customer Review Experience||Value|
|Positive Review||5 points per review|
|Neutral Review||3 points per review|
|Negative Review||1 point per review|
BBB letter grades represent the BBB's opinion of the business. The BBB grade is based on BBB file information about the business. In some cases, a business' grade may be lowered if the BBB does not have sufficient information about the business despite BBB requests for that information from the business.
BBB Letter Grade Scale
Star Rating scale
BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Delivery delayed, defective product delivered. This vendor has promised to send me a super quality griddle and has charged additional price for the 2nd day shipping. The shipping was delivered after 5 calendar days (3rd business day). The product itself looks like used one and looks defective.
Desired Settlement: I want my money to be refunded including the shipping charges collected. This is because, the shipping was delayed for a defective product.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (4000, 11, 2014/06/04) */ Customer ordered these items via our web site on 4/24/2014 after the 1:00 pm E.T. Items were shipped via FedEx 2nd day air on the next business day 04/25/14. Tracking number ************. FedEx delivered the items to the customers address on 4/29/14, which was an on-time delivery as weekends are not shipping days. The items were shipped directly from our manufacturer and were new. Majority of our products are commercial quality. The products ordered on this occasion were commercial griddle tops that are heavy gauge 3/16'' steel. These products are rugged and coated to keep them from rusting. They are to be seasoned like cast iron. This customer contacted out office stating he did not receive them on time. We stated that he could return these products for a full refund for the items, as long as they were in the original condition. If they were returned and found to be defective we would then also refund the shipping charges. This customer has not returned these products to our office as of 6/2/14, so we have not been able to make any determination in regard the products defectiveness. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (4200, 13, 2014/06/05) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) The vendor is returning the cost of the item but what happens to the expedited shipping I paid for? Just keeping my urgency in view, I had happily accepted the fastest mode available at the time of booking my order. It was a 2nd day air shipping. But the shipment has reached me at the end of the 3rd day. I cannot understand and accept it in any way, shape or form. The vendor ruined my party and forced me to run to local stores searching for the product. Ultimately, I could get it anywhere locally. I had to settle down to a cheaper alternative. Ideally, I could have asked for a compensation for the upset it made to me for the get-together party. In summary, I want the total refund and nothing else.
