Section #2: Explanation of my situation
On November 30th, 2011 at 4:30pm my husband and I were closing on our first home when I went into early labor. It was a very stressful situation. The day before I was set to bring our daughter home from the hospital we realized that the crib we had been gifted was unsafe to put her in. My husband brought my laptop to the hospital and I started searching for a crib. I went to Walmart.com to purchase a crib partly because I had saved up gift cards for an emergency and partly because I received an email with a nice crib for sale.
I decided to wait until I came home to order the crib so on December 7th, 2011 we ordered the crib from Walmart.com. I was so excited to get a crib for our daughter and make up her room in our NEW house!
On December 10th mid afternoon the crib arrived damaged. We didnt even open the box because you could clearly see from the box that the crib inside was damaged. There were 2 large holes into the box and pieces of wood broken falling out of the holes.
I immediately got on the phone and called your company. As explained in my complaint filed with the Attorney Generals Office the first representative told me all of these things making me feel so much better BUT they were all
misrepresentations of what would happen.
As of this date I have spent a total of over 6.5 hours on the phone with your company trying to get help!
I have called corporate as well as every other number I could find. Not one person could/would help me!
I JUST WANTED A CRIB FOR MY NEW BABY!!
I didnt want my money back or anything extra! I just wanted my baby to have a crib!
She still has NO crib and we still do not have all of the money back that we spent to purchase the crib!
Section #3: Excuses from the company
We cant do anything it has been escalated to billing already.
We have to wait for billing to fix the problem.
The refund wasnt issued properly.
The money takes 3-5 business days to be refunded.
The money is being held up by your bank.
The billing department was waiting for the original item to be returned.
The billing department issued the refund the wrong way.
This has already been escalated 6 times to the billing department and they are the only ones who can fix the issue.
We cant send you a new crib unless you pay for it in full first and then wait for the refund to come.
We have no choice but to escalate it again and wait for billing to fix the problem.
I ordered: Graco - Freeport Classic Crib, Classic Cherry - Model No.: 5587816 for $89+ taxes/fees on 12/07/2011.
Order Number: 2677054-769024 - Paid for with 2 gift cards.
On 12/10/2011 the crib arrived damaged. I immediately called Walmart.com at 1-800-925-6278. I placed the call at
3:15 pm and was on the phone with a representative for about 35 minutes working things out.
What she said she would do is this: Send me the Graco - Lauren 4-in-1 Convertible Classic Fixed-Side Crib, Espresso
(Model No.: 2354497 - Priced at: $149.54) for $89 with no shipping charges and the shipping would be upgraded
free of charge to expedited shipping.
I agreed and just really wanted a crib for my newborn.
The lady then explained that both of my gift cards would be refunded for all that I spent on purchasing the crib. The
funds would be available within 48 hours at which time I needed to call back and they would immediately send out the
above described crib Model No.: 2354497 for the original price paid of $89 with free expedited shipping, which
would allow us to have the crib before Christmas.
I called back on 12/12/2011 and spoke with a representative for about 23 minutes. At which time I was informed that
notes were not properly written on my account and I would be waiting for the original crib to come back in stock. At
which time they would contact me and ship the crib. I was upset and and requested something be done because I
NEEDED a crib. I was also informed that the refund could take another 5 business days. The original representative
had, according to this person, been mistaken about the time frames.
I then called back on 12/14/2011 when I had received the incorrect amount refunded to me. I should have been
refunded: $96.12 but was only refunded $67.60. I have yet to get the money back or the crib and they have the
original crib back already!
