Vitacost, Vitacost.com Sent products but I never received them - Poor customer service Lexington North Carolina
Once I decided to reorder, I expected the same prompt delivery and I placed a much higher valued order. That order was never processed. I didn't get an email stating why, just sat there on my account page.
I figured out through trial and error that any value over $50.00 gets custom fees charged upon delivery, so I made two smaller orders (and paid shipping fees of over $40.00 for each). Those were rushed right through but were stalled at customs over content . . . suspicions? Didn't seem to matter that I ordered the exact same items a month prior.
I contacted Vitacost with my situation and they seemed less than interested. "Not our problem" was essentially the response. They didn't contact UPS, didn't offer me a refund, didn't offer a credit, didn't offer to replace the items (by sending to a stateside friend) - - just didn't seem to care at all. I've yet to receive the items and am getting the runaround by Chinese UPS (no big surprise there). Yes, custom regulations may not be their problem, but surely they understand if they can help me solve these problems, they would retain a possible long-term buyer?
What happened to decent customer service and what happened to companies wanting repeat and satisfied customers? I won't be ordering from this company again!
