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.

Buy Kenmore get less

Whatever you do at Sears, don’t run into a Kenmore Appliance. Kenmore appliances may look like a great buy when their on sale compared to the competitors, but Kenmore’s parts are cheaply made, and without Sears pricey service plan, your screwed when something goes wrong. Now after spending all that money to replace an old appliance that worked great, you are left with a newer appliance with constant issues.

There should be more than a one year limited warranty on an expensive appliance such as Kenmore Refrigerator’s. Sears wants you to purchase their warranty plan, so instead of standing behind the Kenmore product you are purchasing from them, Kenmore makes their warranty so barley there, that if you don’t pay for the Sears warranty plan, Kenmore’s cheap parts are bound to stop working as soon as that limited warranty expires.

American Residential Warranty, your claim is Denied!

American Residential Home Warranty, also know as ARW makes claims in their commercial that their warranty coverage gives the Home Owner peace of mind, but once something happens and you call them with a claim, there is always some reason that your claim is denied. The Home Owner is left to worry, and repair items and parts that ARW claims are not covered under their Warranty policy.

Consumers have complained about not receiving the policy, or list of items covered and not covered. Then when they go to make a claim suddenly this list is available. ARW also is the one to place the work order for the repairs and you must use the company of their choice. You the Home Owner are left to wait and wonder about who’s coming to service your needed repair.

This type of warranty is really not worth it. With the price of the ARW policy, and all the non covered parts and claim denials, it’s only more of a headache for the Home Owner than its worth. Always investigate and research a company and their complaints before purchase, only then will you have peace of mind.

Flip This House

Look out for this scam coming to your town soon! Armando Montelongo is ripping people off by using his run on Flip This House, to scam fans out of thousands of dollars selling worthless information about flipping houses, with his bait and switch seminars.

Armando Montelongo runs his infomercial everyday, several times a day until the seminar begins, he talks about how he is the #1 real estate investor in the country and mentions his Flip This House episodes. Armando Montelongo claims that you will learn from HIM how to make money flipping houses, then he continues to mention how the seminar is free to attend, but to hurry and call the number at the bottom of the screen because there is limited seating, he also tries to lure you in with offering a free worthless Armando Montelongo DVD and Mp3 Player, which he claims to be worth over $500 just for attending.

What Armando Montelongo fails to mention is he won’t be there, and that this free event is just a sign up for a three day seminar that costs $1400.00, which in reality is all about getting you to sign up for the worthless $30,000.00 bus tour! So don’t expect to meet Armando Montelongo, he’s at home counting all this money from this Bait and Switch Seminar Scam!

Subway No way!

I use to enjoy a Subway sandwich every now and then, while out for lunch or needing a quick dinner. However every since I had an issue in one of the Subway restaurants, I have never set foot in any of their establishments again.

Subway doesn’t respond to customer issues or concerns, if you have a problem in one one of these restaurant don’t expect a response, a reply or even a coupon from this company. So don’t even waste your time complaining to the corporate office, CEO, or the establishment you patronized either. Subway customer service is the worst of the worse. When there is an issue, they would rather loose your business then provide exceptional customer service. They do not care about their customers or what they think, they only care about the money. When they receive a complaint, they just ignore it in the hopes that you will just go away and forget about it.

The CEO, Fred DeLuca will disrespect and ignore you, and he has trained his reps to do the same, even If you threaten never to eat at another Subway establishment again. It’s a shame Fred DeLuca didn’t learn anything from “Undercover Boss“, and there is clearly a lot more his company needs to learn about customer service and support, and how to respond and reply to complaints before everyone is saying Subway no way!
