Additional Notes

Complaint: Men's t-shirt package contains 6 t-shirts. Additional sticker on the top of the package says "+1 One more for the same price". Since 6 + 1 = 7, I assumed that there would be 7 shirts in the package. There were only 6 and it was not a packaging error the package was designed to only have 6 shirts and the label indicating there is 1 more shirt for the same price is misleading at best.

Desired Settlement: Change their advertising, basically don't put a sticker on the product that says there is an extra t-shirt in the package.

Business Response:

Dear **. *******,

Thank you for allowing me to speak to you regarding your recent purchase of Hanes underwear from Sam’s Club.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.  As promised I have reported your concern to the appropriate area.  You will be pleased to know our Marketing team had already instructed our distribution center to cease placing the sticker on the package.  Please be assured that feedback like yours is most important to us.  It is only through such contacts that we become aware of our consumers’ concerns and can make an effort to resolve them.


**. *******, I know you stated you do not wish to have complementary product sent to you.  However, if you have a change of heart after reading this email and you choose to accept the product, please give me a call at ###-###-####, Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 4:30pm (EST), or on the Web at

Additional Notes

Complaint: I am writing regarding the return of five(5) Hanes Signature Men's Cotton Waffle Knit V-Notch Sweaters that I purchased and were unhappy with due to numerous problems with lose threads and piling. I called Hanes customer and was told to send the sweaters back to Hanes Satisfaction GuaranteeP.O. Box 5000Rural Hall, NC 27098I sent the 5 sweaters back via US MAIL Priority since this is a po box and there is no other way to send it. I had to spend 15.00 to mail these back. I sent these defective sweaters back in June of 2012. It is now almost october and I have yet to receive my refund. I paid $200 for the 5 sweaters and 15.00 for the postage. I called customer service 2 to 3 weeks after i mailed them in. They assured me that they had received them and that they were processing my return. Ive called numerous times after that to be given a runaround, sometimes agents going as far to say that they never received my return! A different story each time.

Desired Settlement: A full refund of $200 for the sweaters (5x$40 per sweater) and 15.00 for the postage. A total refund of $215.00

BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable offer to resolve the complaint. However the consumer did not accept the offer.
