Complaint: I found several pieces of cabinet hardware on the "Finest Hardware" website (http://www.**************.com/). The website specifications indicated a "chrome" finish on the cabinet hardware. I was not completely clear whether this meant "polished chrome" or "brushed chrome" , so I called the company directly to speak to a sales representative. It should noted that the picture associated with the cabinet hardware looks like "brushed chrome". I reviewed the hardware specifications on the website with the company sales representative on the phone and they indicated that the cabinet hardware was a "brushed chrome". I ordered the hardware for approx. $50 and it was received. Unfortunately, all of the cabinet hardware received is "polished chrome" which I cannot use. I contacted the company immediately and explained that the wrong hardware had been sent. I requested an alternate "brushed chrome" hardware or a refund. The company responded with the following: "Hello - We look up the order. There was 12 of ********** and 6 of **********. The ********** is chrome plated and we don't have "Brushed chrome". See attached catalogue. The value is below $90 min return, so we can't accept the return and we don't have something for brushed chrome. Thank you, Returns Department" I then followed up with an email asking them what they think I should do with the approx. $50 of "polished chrome" hardware that I currently have and can't use. Are there any other options? They have not responded to date.
Desired Settlement: I think they should refund the entire amount including shipping cost each way. Potential customers should also be aware of the so-called $90 fine print return policy even when a company representative gave me the wrong product description before I placed the order or the wrong product was shipped.
