Planner Pads would not exchange the product I bought, which is unusable, for one that does.
I purchased a ******* Planner Pad on ****************. I had used a Planner Pad in the past but a larger size. I found the one I bought to be basically unusable as the lines are too tiny and close together to be able to write in. I called and asked for them to exchange it for a larger one. They said they could not do that. I cited their guarantee, which states a 6 month money back guarantee. They stated that only applies to first time customers. I stated that this is the first time I'd bought a small planner from them, and it is unusable, could they please exchange it and I would pay the difference if the larger planner was more. They said that they could offer me a 20% discount. I stated I'd just spent ** dollars on this two weeks ago, it isn't working for me, and I'd really appreciate an exchange or refund. They said no. I later posted on their ******** page hoping to get a response there. They deleted my comment, leaving only those with positive feedback.

Desired Settlement
I would like the company to replace the ******* planner pad with an ********* size (the one I'd used before) at no cost, or refund my money. I am happy to send the one I have back.

Business Response
We reviewed Mrs. ******* case on ****** after her initial call to us. We called her to explain our return policy as she had written in her Planner Pad and it was not restockable. We did go ahead and replace the Planner with the ********* one she really needed at no charge on **********, as it was comparable to her returning the ******* for a refund.
