BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating Overview

Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: My initial order is ********* and it has been a nightmare since I place the order. After my original delivery was delayed an extra month, I decided to wait only to receive multiple damaged items. I called the company and they sent some replacement furniture which was also defective and then sent more defective furniture to replace the original defective furniture. Finally, after 3 attempted deliveries of defective furniture they sent a tech out to repair some of the stuck drawers. He fixed some of them but the rest still do not work correct and my chest is still cracked. After speaking with****** in customer service I was told I would receive an extra 5% back off my original purchase price plus the delivery fee to keep the furniture as is. He verified with his manager and I was told in a few days I would see the money, no later than 1/8/14. I called ****** on 1/14 and he told me they can’t do the refund anymore after making the promise.

He verified with his manager and I was told in a few days I would see the money, no later than 1/8/14. I called ****** on 1/14 and he told me they can’t do the refund anymore after making the promise. I want to receive what I was promised, a 5% discount plus shipping charges by ******. The total return amount should be over $200.
Business Response: Customer is correct about delays of delivery with a total delay of three weeks from original promised date. What customer failed to mention was we had already processed a 10% credit issued back on December 9th due to inconvenience. When he called again to mention issues were still happening with the items, our rep was not aware at that time customer had already received that extra credit and offered a credit to the customer. When the second credit was requested and found out that customer had already been issued a credit due to inconvenience, the new request for credit was not processed. After a new conversation with customer with our rep, the rep explained we could not process that additional credit and he had the option to return the merchandise which he refused to do. At this point we could offer the customer an additioanl 5% credit of the merchandise for a total of $104.12 plus its tax portion.
I have reviewed the response submitted by the business and have determined that the response does not satisfy or resolve my issues and/or concerns in reference to complaint.
Business Response: Mr. ******** called back and spoke to Customer Care. After the follow-up conversation we have processed a credit for $222.49, this was processed back to Mr. ********’s credit card on 1/27/2014
I have reviewed the response submitted by the business and have determined that the response does satisfy my issues and/or concerns in reference to complaint. I understand that by choosing to accept the business response that my complaint will be closed as resolved.
