Purchased a TracFone sim card at Walmart. Then went online to purchase a phone plan which seems to be a requirement to use the sim card. No coverage or bars on the phone so I returned online to ask for a refund of the plan purchased just 15 minutes prior to finding out we didn't seem to have coverage. It took a long chain of phone options to get to a human and then I was transferred twice and on the last transfer I was told that all customer support lines were busy. 10 PM on a Sunday night. I waited 30 minutes and went through the same process to be told that they could not offer a refund for purchased phone minutes. I insisted on a refund and I was told to hold and they transferred me to the same dead customer support line that was supposable busy. I contacted Discover Card and was told I had to wait 10 days to file a claim because the charge needs to clear the account. Pee'd off is putting it mildly. We have another phone that is a tracfone that we will be purchasing a new phone and plan from a more reputable provider.

Working on a fix

I don't give up so I called again and again and finally received a response that I think may have resolved my issue of obtaining a refund. Will check the next credit card statement and render judgment on this issue at that time.

Until you make it as easy to cancel a purchase as it is to make the purchase then we will be shopping elsewhere. Study Amazon if you want to understand how customer service works. 

Thanks for the follow up.
