Shoppers Choice!

Why Shop With Us? 100% Satisfaction Guarantee & Real Customer Service!

That's a lie! Yes, as shoppers we have lots of choices. And here is why:

I spoke with you all this morning regarding this. The agent I spoke with is named Joshua at 877-743-2269. Obviously, you guys really don't care about customers because you are refusing to honor the price shown. All he said to me was "thank you for pointing out the error." I will never shop with you and this letter is going to be posted across the internet to show your lack of concern.

BTW, the page is NOT inactive and is still showing just fine. You now show the product to be unavailable. Click on the link for yourself, you all still haven't corrected it:

See, this is another rip off company. I won't be shopping with them! Let's make sure everyone knows about this one.

I'm sorry that you had a bad experience shopping with us, and I would like to talk to you directly if you wouldn't mind to see how we can do better in the future. Additionally, I would like to offer my assessment of what happened, then an apology, and then an explanation of the action that we will take now that I am aware of this issue.

Since I haven't talked to you yet, I am not sure of the whole story, but I would like to list a few of my first thoughts on these issues.

I would urge you to revisit this page again:

This page will still come up, but if you look under the price, you will notice that we mention the product is unavailable, and there is no add to cart button. This is how our system handles items that are no longer available.

From what I can gather, you found this product on an affiliate site before coming to our site. The '?PID=2007032' at the end of the web address you posted is a tag that we use to pay commissions to people who advertise our products for us. Essentially, we make all of our product information available to people (called affiliates) who wish to advertise products online but don't want to handle fulfillment. Occasionally, we run into affiliate marketers who do not update their sites as they should. This can cause a situation where a customer comes to our site expecting one thing, and we show them something completely different. When we get reports of this, we contact the affiliate marketer and work with them to solve the problem. I will be passing this along to our affiliate manager as soon as I am done replying so he can get this affiliate worked out.

Lastly, Joshua should have done a better job explaining the situation to you, working with you to find a solution, and bringing this information to our tech team so they could fix it immediately. I am sorry this did not happen. While I would love to say we are always 100% on the ball, the truth is that we are human, and we do mess up from time to time. However, we are willing to try to make things right, and I think that our willingness to try to fix what we mess up is what makes our company different. For what it is worth, we do maintain a 96% customer satisfaction rating through, and you can see that history here:

We really do our best to offer the best customer service online, and I think if you give us the chance, we can earn back your trust. Please feel free to contact me about this if you wouldn't mind sparing the time, so I can make sure I fully understand what happened and solve it appropriately.
