I was naturally perturbed. The representative then passed me on to a supervisor who explained that they did send an email which i never received and I also checked 'spam'. I was then passed on to an 'escalations' representative who told me that in the FAQ's it states that no ore than 2 samples are permitted per order. There website did not have a pop-up as most others do explaining that I had reached some sort of limit, nor was my order blocked. It went thru without any problems but later was cancelled without giving me notification though they claim they sent such.
This answer was not satisfactory so i contacted their headquarters and spoke with the CEO's secretary. she seemingly agreed that after spending $221 that they would cancel an order because of a few extra trifle samples. Samples, by the way, which i hand out to family and friends which you would think they would like since it means potential new customers.
After not hearing back from anyone regarding my complaint, the situation continued to disintegrate. I sent 2 add'l emails before i heard back from someone. They then told me that they could not reactivate my order once it was cancelled. This posed an additional problem. They had given me a one day only promotional offer of a 15% discount which i used with that 2nd order that could not be re-used. I had to call to place a new order which they channeled again through 'escalations' . I did get the 2nd order placed as a new order with the promo offer minus the samples and i requested an itemized statement email of items and charges. They only sent a list of the items without the charges.
I sent 2 more emails and got no response so i called again. I was then told that they do not do that and that such a statement will be included in my shipment. Again, i went to a supervisor. I explained to her that whenever I make a purchase anywhere else on line, that they ALWAYS send me an email confirmation with a breakdown of the charges. She said that bare Escentuals/Minerals never does that.
I have never been treated in a shoddier fashion. I have faxed a letter to Simon Cowell (CEO) and Kevin Bradshaw (VP). I am waiting for a response.
