High Sierra the Backpack Ripoff

high-sierra-logo-black

Whatever you do keep moving when it comes to this site! High Sierra is the worst of the worst when it comes to customer service. They don’t respond by email except the generic response will be in touch.

If High Sierra makes a mistake and sends you the wrong item their policy is we don’t care!

2019-07-20_1235

If you want the right item you have to PAY FOR IT AGAIN well the wrong item gets returned for a refund. I don’t know about you but I’m not about to pay for the right item twice. Their mistake but to return their mistake you have to get through to someone first (took me 48 hours) and then wait for three days for APPROVAL for a return label and then return their mistake and wait for processing then wait for the right item to ship if it ever does.

Customer service is about admitting mistakes apologizing and getting the customer the right item right away. This company claims it’s their policy they make a mistake and you the customer has to fix it! Great Policy, please think twice when it comes to shopping at High Sierra.

Walmart not accepting coupons anymore!

2018-08-25_1143

Surprise surprise Walmart is no longer abiding by their own coupon policy and has now made their own rules when it comes to your printed coupons from coupons.com which have their own security for printing manufacturer coupons, Walmart has decided to no longer accept them at all!

When I contacted my local Walmart manager I was told they no longer accept printed coupons but she wouldn’t give me a straight answer about the new policy at the location, which is not stated in their coupon policy anywhere she sounded ghetto and kept insisting that she wasn’t there so she don’t know why they confiscated them instead of accepting them.

Well I do Walmart has decided not to take legit coupons anymore! My coupons were not copied, had a clear expiration date, barcode and manufacturer information and instead of scanning them for my order I had to pay full price and they confiscated the coupons like they were illegal material!

This company is making it harder and harder for customers to use coupons at their locations, those same coupons would have been accepted by any grocery store so why won’t Walmart‘s SUPER CENTER accept them and why is this not mentioned in their coupon policy?

It’s all got to do with money apparently they are worried about getting their $3.00 back from the manufacturer. Walmart will not be my go to store anymore if they can’t follow their own coupon policy and have now decided to treat coupon users like criminals it’s time to shop elsewhere!

Walmart.com Online Price Gouging

We were all happy when Walmart lowered it’s free shipping option amount from $50 to $35, and started providing 2-day shipping instead of their slow Post Office option. However suddenly everything is now listed with an In-Store price and a 2-day Shipping price.

2017-11-10_0955

What difference does it make if we purchase in-store or online price should be the same, and the 2 day shipping isn’t free if we are being price gouged for it. Walmart has not just added a few cents to items, something that is .48 cents In-Store is a $1.48 for the 2-Day Shipping option.

Sorry Walmart but it looks like you are charging us for that free 2-day shipping you offer.

From now on Walmart will NOT be our first option, the place that provides the cheapest price is where we will shop, and it looks like that won’t be Walmart!

We contacted Walmart ‘s CEO Doug McMillon about this and the response received from his team was ridiculous. They told us to shop at the store or pick up at the store, which basically means the extra charge is due to the 2-day shipping they claim is free!

The reason most people shop online is because they don’t want to go to the store, and some of us hate going to our local Walmart, because it takes just as long to pick up an order as it does to just go there and do the shopping yourself.

Hello,

Thank you for your email and for taking the time to share your concerns regarding pricing on some items available on Walmart.com. We know that low prices are important to our customers and we’re committed to providing just that. However, in certain instances, our prices on Walmart.com may not be the same as what you see at your local Walmart store because of differences in the costs to serve our customers in the different channels. If Grocery pickup is an option for you, your local Walmart provides this service which offers the same low prices that we have in our stores because the orders are fulfilled at the store. For more information, please visit https://wmt-grocery.custhelp.com/app. Again, we thank you for sharing your concerns and want to assure you that we always work to make sure we are offering a competitive online price. If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Animal Hospital Overcharge

imagesImage result for animal hospital clipart

It’s sad that when it comes to our precious pets needing emergency care or surgery, we are at the mercy of the Animal Hospital prices! It costs more for care for our pets then it should at these facilities.

1. The medication mark up is ridiculous, a medication costing $8 at PetSmart, cost $30 at the Animal Hospital, and you know they purchase it at cost, so why does cost to you so much more? They will also provide and charge you for more medication than your pet may need on some scripts.

2. They always recommend an over night stay for pain management, this cost is around $1,000, or more at most pet hospitals. I declined this service and took my animal home, and was frustrated when I realized I only had to give him his medication once at 6 am to save myself $1,000 for an over night visit.

3. The price for the cage they are kept in is 100 times the cost of the cage and most times they are only in it a few hours at best.

4. They estimate your bill and charge you 75% and then do as little as possible but charge as much as possible, so you still have a balance of 25% or more when you return to pick up your pet.

5. The emergency Veterinarian will give you an estimate on the care required for your pet, but will recommend your own vet does the procedure because the hospital surgeon is expensive, knowing full well most vets aren’t surgeons!

6. The surgeon will then have a different opinion for care and price, and when you question why two different opinions, the Surgeon will tell he is the Surgeon and the other is just an emergency vet!

Most of these Animal Hospitals provide wonderful care. The problem here is the price for that care.

All these things add up to lots of money for pet care, and the reason people have a hard time getting their pet the care and treatment they require. We all love our pets, but who has $1,000’s of dollars to keep them around when they require some sort of care or surgery from an Animal Hospital.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amazon PrimePantry Review

Recently signed up for a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime, and although I received free two-day shipping on my order, I still would have received the free shipping with my $25 purchase I just might have had to wait a little longer for delivery.

So I thought “wow” I can get free 2-day shipping on everything Prime I just might keep it once the trial expires, WRONG! Amazon now has this PrimePantry category for all the grocery type items that they sold separately previously before this PrimePantry category was implemented.

So this is what you see when you select PrimePantry, so one would assume any 5 items in the associated categories under PrimePantry you would receive free 2-day shipping as a Prime member, WRONG!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/pantry/info/pantrypromotion

You have to select 5 certain items and fill the box before they ship, so it’s probably just the 5 in the picture that falls under the free shipping guidelines for PrimePantry , so why pay for 5 items that you really don’t want or need just to get free shipping. PrimePantry is just another way to make Prime members pay for shipping!

For $99 – $131.88 a year for a membership, you would expect that ANY 1 more or less ANY 5 “PrimePantry” items would provide a Prime member with free shipping! “Prime” is the keyword here Amazon!

There’s no fun in Farmville anymore.

farmville-logo (1)

This use to be a fun game for most Facebook users who had small farms, but over time the game becomes more of problem the bigger the farm gets. We became so frustrated with it, we had to go on a vacation from it!

  1. The constant Bushel Summary popups while plowing with the combine are just unnecessary and slow game play to a crawl.
  2. The constant “Flash Player has stopped responding” messages have made it time consuming and at times impossible to access the Craft Barn, Gift Box, and many other items on the farm, which slows the game play to a crawl.
  3. The constant popups when harvesting the animal pens makes it almost impossible to get them harvested and slows the game play to a crawl. It would be easier if they were not in the pens and we used the farmhand to harvest, so what’s the point?
  4.  Certain items such as the pen harvester require lots of Farmville cash so that the only way to obtain it is to actually purchase the harvester with real cash!
  5. Once you have expanded all you can for coins, there is no longer a reason to play anymore, because now any expansion will require hundreds of Farmville dollars, which in reality means cash money!

Zynga want’s you to pay for a VIP membership for the game to work great, wait, what? Sure we could pay for this game and these items with cash, but if it works this bad in free mode, why bother?

Well, Zynga I’m going be spending our money on getting far away from Farmville!

 

Careington Dental doesn’t care about you.

2017-04-14_2344

If your thinking Careington Dental offers a great price for a dental plan, rethink it! Careington Dental will take your payments and everything will be great until you go to the dentist. Suddenly your card expires and instead of notifying you so you can provided updated details, they will cancel you with no notification whatsoever and then tell your dentist that you cancelled.

When a plan is cancelled the subscriber should be notified, with this company they blame it on your email. They have your address, phone number as well as email do you think they care enough to send you a cancellation letter? No they want to deny that nasty little dental bill that just came in so no notification is given, and by the time you find out they won’t have to pay!

Careington Dental is the worst plan you can have, pay a little more so you can get better service and a company that actually cares about you, and doesn’t just have care in their name!
