Additional Notes

Complaint: Approximately 3 weeks ago I attempted to purchase some clothing from Pacific Sunwear at using a couple gift cards I had received for my birthday. The first time I attempted to the purchase, the website explained that an error had occurred and the transaction could not be processed. I tried to troubleshoot the problem a couple more times that week and failed. I waited until that Thursday, April 9, 2105, to contact the business directly via the phone with regards to my issues with the order on their website. The phone call lasted 11 minutes and I was told by a customer service representative that the issue would be resolved in 24 hours and that I would be able to complete the order the next day. I waited more than the recommended 24 hours to reattempt the transaction but failed yet again, this time due to the gift cards (which still had not been used) being stated as "inactive or invalid" . I called Pacsun again at their customer service number to inform them that I was still unable to process the transaction and that I wanted my claim to be escalated to the managerial level so that I could express my concern with a supervisor. I was reassured that a manager would call me back within 1 business hour. 4 days later I received a voicemail from ****** who was a supervisor at Pacsun who was going to help me. When I called the office back a couple hours later I was told ****** was in a meeting and would give me a call back (that day) after the meeting. I called back the next day because I had still not received a call, I was told that ****** was at lunch and would call me after. I called again the next day after still not having received contact from a Pacsun supervisor like I was told I would 5 days earlier. I was again told by a representative that I would be called back within a day by a supervisor. It has been 5 days since then and I have still not been contacted. This has become a bewildering act of unprofessionalism and horrendous customer service.

Desired Settlement: I have spent a lot of money at this establishment throughout my life time and have never dealt with an issue this embarrassingly unprofessional before. Due to the length of time I have not been able to complete my order, the item I want has since been sold out. Unless this is fully handled by Pacific Sunwear I will never involve myself with their apparel again.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Advertised buy one get one 50% off AND buy 3 get one free. When I checked out with four pairs of men's pants, they rang up 54.95 54.95 54.95 and free. With the advertised sale in the store, it should have been 54.95, 27.48, 54.95, and free. I asked the clerk about the register price, she told me "You can't have both, they give you the better deal". There is no better deal and both "deals" are the same. I emailed PACSUN customer service on 12/2 and they have not replied. This is deceptive advertising, as I was overcharged 27.48 on one pair of pants. Product_Or_Service: Mens Pannts

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund I believe that the total price was an overcharge of 27.48 plus tax on the items purchased.
