It pays to ask!!

February 18th, 2009 at 04:44 pm

I ordered a heater that claimed it would heat 1000 square feet. My dh was finishing a new home and had no heat. As you all know, the heater's claims were not valid. It could not even heat one room, so we sent it back.
The company did credit back the money that they charge on our master card. But it cost over $27 to ship it back.

So, I wrote a letter and asked for a refund of the UPS charge and I enclosed the bill. (They said ship it back at their expense) I figured I would never hear from them, but yesterday I received a check for the full amount. so, for a 42 cent stamp, I got $27 back.

I also cashed in the change in my change jar and received $31. I will add this $58 to my $20 challenge.
Prev. total $3729.00
today 58.00
new total #3787.00

    That's great, Julie. It does pay to ask... "nothing ventured, nothing gained."
