Additional Notes

Complaint: Ordered badger clips which are not functioning at all. Called the sales team for refund or exchange. My call was purposed ignored by the sales person Ordered badger clips which are not functioning at all. Called the sales team for refund or exchange. I was asked to pay for own shipping and won't be able to get refund because I opened the bag. How would I know they are not functioning if I don't. Also, My call was purposed ignored by the sales person. They cut my line three times.

Desired Settlement: Return and refund the non-functioning badger clips.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/08/07) */ We have resolved the complaint in the days since the complaint was filed. As a courtesy to the customer, we had UPS pick up the badge cips in question vs. asking the customer to send them back at their expense. Only 179 out of 200 clips were returned, but we are issuing full credit of $44.00 plus tax.
