You should think twice before ordering anything from Brylane Home.

Customer reviews can make or break a company.  But what is never clear is if a company review is legitimate or not.

Well, here is my review of Brylane Home from personal experience.

Brylane Home had a great sale on their pasta pot.  Maybe too great!

I ordered their pasta pot on March 19, 2012.  I received an order confirmation for this.  I received another email on March 21, 2012 saying they shipped my order.

This was their email:
Dear Pam,

Were happy to inform you that the item(s) noted below from your order placed on 03/19/2012 were shipped on 03/21/2012. In some instances, not all items from your original order will be  reflected on this email as some items may ship from different locations. You will receive a separate email confirming each of those shipments.

If some items are listed with a future shipping date or display a  backorder status, it means we will ship these items to you as soon as  they arrive at our service center. You will not be charged for any items until they are shipped.

-The BrylaneHome Team

So, my order was shipped and they deducted the amount from my PayPal.
I know things take time, but I emailed them on April 2nd asking where my order was.  I got a canned answer of:

Ok, canned reply.  It happens.  So, I emailed them again on April 7th, 2012.  5 days later.  Side note:  if you have a problem with Brylane Home email them the second you get their canned reply.

This is Brylane Home answer to my email of April 7:

So I almost patiently waited for April 16th, when they would actually act on any problems with my order.  So, I sent this email:

It's April 16th and I have notreceived my order.  Can you now please find out where it is?
Thank you

Pam T
And although I thought I would get a response from Ana Hernandez because she was suppose to be "in charge" of my case.  I get this reply:

Dear Pam T:

We have issued a refund credit in the amount of $18.58 to your original payment method. Depending on your credit card billing cycle, you will see this credit

So now I'm dealing with Diana Adame?  Ok, I sent another message:

Ana Hernandez or Diana Adame or whoever cares about this problem.  I would like to reorder ONLY IF I get a refund to my PayPal and I get the item for the same exact price as originally purchased.

Last check, I have NOT received a credit/refund to my PayPal account.  So if you do that, and agree to sell me the pasta pot at the discounted price as I originally purchased, go ahead an order again.

Well, let's just say their customer service and company policies aren't exactly up to par.  This is the message I just received:

So, not only do I now have to deal with a 3rd person, Belinda Parra, they must think I'm blind, because their phone number is a bit large, don't you think?

The end result is, I hope everyone can see Brylane Home for what they really portray.  Bad customer service and an irresponsible way of doing business.

I'm probably going to be out money for this fiasco, but I don't care.  I want everyone to know just who Brylane Home is and what they do.

I just received an email and I always want to be up front and open minded, I will share the email:

Dear Pam T

My name is Juan Romero. I will be helping you with your issue today. Thank you for your email. We would like to apologize to you for the difficulty you experienced with BrylaneHome.

So, I now have to deal with how many representatives??

That was from the last email contact and the blog I wrote because I don't want anyone else to think buying products from the Internet is as bad at buying from Brylane Home.
