Additional Notes

Complaint: I ordered ***** on friday and the ONLY option i was given was for it to be deliver on 6/25/13 by 7am. I have the paperwork stating it would be deliverd by 7am for $545! They now contacted me for another $100 to get it there by 7am! This is false paperwork stating it would be there by 7am. What I have says I agreed to pay $545 for service by 7am which is what I agreed to.

Desired Settlement: I would like to be refunded my $100 I just paid since the proof I have says $545 for delivery by 7am.

Business Response:

Dear **. ******, 

I have evaluated the information regarding the complaint submitted to the Better Business Bureau by ****** ****** 06/24/13 3:24:05 PM.

I also reviewed this patients complaint and am unsure where **. ******* saw that her order would be delivered by 7AM?  I have thoroughly reviewed all signed documents from **. ******, as well as reviewing the online ordering process and the only information I found was a statement online, during the checkout process that stated "ALL ORDERS ARE SHIPPED AT 7AM DAILY." 

I attempted to contact **. ****** personally on Friday, July 5th, as I wanted to personally touch base and apologize for her experience and interaction with this most recent purchase.  I also wanted to confirm that we have already processed the refund of $100 for the rush fee she was charged for this shipment.  It is important to mention that it can take betweemn 5-10 business days for this to post back to her credit card statement.  I have also personally spoken with the Client Service Representative that she spoke with, as this call should have been "bumped up," to a supervisor since she was not satisfied with her experience.  We strive to provide WOW! customer service at all times and regretfully failed to do so with **. ******.

Since it seems as though there was some confusion while **. ****** placed her online order and we would like to fix this confusion for all of our patinets, going forward.  I am hopeful that **. ****** will give me the opportunity to speak with her directly, so that I am able to correct this confusion and potentially retain her as a client.  If she would allow me the opportunity, I ask that she contact me directly, at ###-###-####.

 Complaint: *******

I am rejecting this response because: I haven't seen the $100 credited yet.
I don't want to speak to anyone on the phone.



****** ******

Business Response:

**. ******,

Thank you for following up.  As I mentioned in my original response, a refund of $100 has already been processed and it can take between 5-10 business days for this credit to post back to the clients credit card statement.  I hope that this satisfies this complaint and if I should be of any additional assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
