Complaint Review: AutoZone
AutoZone11209 n. 19th Avenue Phoenix, Arizona United States of America
AutoZone Auto Zone These jokers did this before when I bought brake pads, stuck me with some lube for $1.39 that I didn't need or ask for...they do this alot and they should be investigated and a class action called on! Phoenix, Arizona
*Consumer Suggestion: Always pay close attention while still at the counter
Next, I then pulled out my receipt and sure enough, these jokers at AutoZone charged me $1.39 for product I had NO INTENTION nor did I opt to purchase. This employee just added it to my bill to increase the sale without my permission or knowledge. It felt like a small amount and hardly worth driving back to the shop for but when I thought about this...it felt like that is EXACTLY what these jokers are most likely counting on...
Upon changing out my spark plugs, I returned to the store and requested the manager. Assistant Manager was on duty and I explained what had occurred and Asst Manager asked me, who helped me, I mentioned the employee who's cashier number was on the receipt in his hands(how would i know the guys name?)...manager then asked me, "was it our new guy or the Mexican guy who doesn't speak English well?"
My reply, "I have no idea if the guy was new and there wasn't anything odd about the guy or his pronunciation of English...?" The manager mentioned the lube was complimentary, I stopped him and again pointed to the receipt and stated there was NOTHING complimentary about the item as there was a $1.39 charge on the receipt that was quite contradictory to this explanation. Asst Manager then adjusted his response and said, 'this item compliments the items you purchased'.
The product was unnecessary and I just wanted my money they absconded off with back. They refunded my money but it was really lame to have to go through this...seriously, ALWAYS check your receipt and bag prior to leaving AutoZone.
I resented being charged by AutoZone for the additional item without being asked, it absolutely was an intentional act, it is illegal practice and needs to be immediately stopped. How many of these illegal $1.39 charges is AutoZone pulling off per hour, day, month year?
This type of cheating of their customers must stop, I couldn't be more of a dissatisfied customer. In typing this up AutoZone Ripoff Report up, I remember purchasing brake pads from them a couple of years ago and this same type of thing happening but I didn't return the item.
(from reading additional posts, I see this is unfortunately common practice for this company) In two addition Ripoff Report posts, employees have shared they are told to do this very thing...smells like a class action...count me in!
