Walmart - Gift Card Review from Woodland Park, Colorado
Worst customer service of my life!On black Friday (11-28-14) I went to their online site to purchase three curtain rods and a 12 piece dinnerware set.
The total came to a little less than $90. I used a $30 gift card, threw it away, and then paid the balance of $57 on my debit card. By Jan 1st I still hadn't received anything, so I call online customer service, I was put on hold for about half an hour, then hung up on, I call back, they tell me that there is no record of my order at all. After I got off that call and check my bank.
Sure enough, there's a charge for $57 on there on 11-28... But for the local Wal-Mart, not online. I have never and will never set foot inside any retailers on black Friday. It's chaos and I refuse.
So here's what it all boils down to... My gift card was used I know because I had to pay the balance, my card was charged I know because it's on my statement, but somehow it got screwed up and is showing as a local purchase and not online. After calling back a 3rd time and explaining the story, I was told he couldn't do anything, and he gave me an email of people in charge of online customer service. He told me they could help.
After a week of emailing (four emails spanned in that week), only to be ignored day after day, I threatened that I wouldn't stop until they responded. Finally, they write me back today, telling me that I have to go to the store and despute the charge. I know they had the ability to help me and make things better, they could have refunded the money, or even sent the products I never received.... But no...
Always someone else's problem. Always sent the shmuck of a customer to chase around in circles. Well, there is no end of the rainbow.
OnlOnphone call holds and hangups, and rude executives who do everything they can to ignore you.If I could give them 0 stars, I would.
