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.

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!

Genie Bra not supportive at all!

Genie Bra, there is no Genie making this product. Consumers complaints are about the BOGO scam, not receiving the item, the item not fitting, and being over charged. I purchased one of these so called Genie Bra‘s and I wasn’t surprised that they were not as advertised, and I did buy the right size.

Genie Bra Pissed Consumer

There is some support upon purchase, but over time it rolls up, your boobs pop out and it gives very little support. I purchased two off brand similar bras, that are better then the Genie Bra and cost a lot less at Burlington Coat Factory, and I didn’t have to wait or pay for a shipment.

OmegaXL the auto shipment sell.

Omega XL drug makes claims of curing and preventing pain, with a money back guarantee. In reality this is just another one of those buy one get one free scams with an auto shipment twist! If this drug did what it claimed doctors everywhere would be prescribing it to their patients and this scam would not be necessary.

Many consumers have complained about not getting refunds on that money back guarantee, and canceling orders but yet still receiving auto shipments and overdrafts on their accounts made by Omega XL.

Your suppose to take two a day to make your pain go away, but what Omega XL really wants is your product to go away so they can auto ship and charge you again for this worthless drug. There are no conclusive studies that prove that Omega XL claims are real. This company preys on the sick and elderly with lies and fake hopes of good health.

Ebates, are your Big Fat Checks on hold?

Ebates claims their users can receive Big Fat Checks for purchases made through their website, and promise these “Big Fat Checks” come every three months if you have more than $5.01 available in your Ebates account from cash back purchases. They also claim you just find your store and click their coupon link and that’s it your on your way to your next Big Fat Check. Not!

In reality what long time customers have found is that not all their purchase credits arrive in their Ebates account, customer care is not there and their big fat check has been pushed out another three months and only Ebates knows why.

This well known site was great when it was not so well known. Now inquiries to missing tracking ticket purchases, and “Wheres my big fat payment” go unanswered because Ebates customer care doesn’t care anymore.

The best cash back site around is Fatwallet.com, sign up today and start receiving you cash back right away!

The WaxVac is wacked

WaxVac has been referred to as a useless piece of junk, a rip off, and just another buy one get one scam with unauthorized offer signups and upgrade charges. They make a claim the item cost is $10.00 plus $6.99 shipping, but in reality this offer could run as much as $50.00 or more with the offers you will automatically be signed up for and billed. Consumer beware.

At least Q-tips won’t leave you broke with a bunch of worthless offers, never give WaxVac your credit card information, because once you do you won’t get a total for your order and the website just goes away and becomes unavailable, then you are signed up for every offer in their book and charged immediately with these unauthorized charges, and will never be able to get a refund.
