Chutzpah: Companies do not fufill their promises

ChutzpaChutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.

chutzpah Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption. In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment.

 

Have you ever bought something and had your order cancelled? I have had it happen to me multiple times. i recently bought gift cards for the  blogger events I created. I placed my order. I paid using paypal. I assumed everything was great. I actually bought one of the gift cards so I could buy myself a treat. The gift cards are offered at a discount. I figured if I bought a gift card and used a coupon I could get the item I wanted for my budget. The retail price was out of my budget by 25% so I had to figure out how to find a deal that would result in 25% off. I was luckily able to secure a gift card for JCP at 25% which would have met my needs. Then I figured I could use a coupon to spread my money further. I was sad to see that my order was cancelled and they still have not sent me back my money! I now have to call and get my $218.00 returned. That is chutzpah! If you cancel my order send me back my money when you cancel!!

It gets worse when I called she said she would hurry the process. I need to understand it usually takes 7 days to return my money. Are you kidding me? If I returned an itemt o a store I would get my money back right away. I am not happy!

    I totally agree! It’s unethical and just plan not right to not send you your money back after they’re the ones that cancelled your order in the first place! I agree with Abe; if you don’t hear from them soon, I’d file a dispute.

    I have a good chutzpah story:

    I went ahead and bought tickets to a concert for my best friend because her birthday was coming up and she REALLY wanted to go to this, but she was a college student and couldn’t justify spending that kind of money (the tickets ended up being $90 for two including tax).

    So, I went ahead and bought them and low and behold, the VERY next day she texted me saying she had WON two tickets to the same concert plus a gas card and some other perks!! How inopportune is that!? LOL Well that same day, I contacted the company letting them know what had happened and that I think I was justified in a refund (company policy was you were only refunded if it was special circumstances which I think this fell under).

    Unfortunately the concert was in 3 days. I contacted them once after I found out and again right before the concert. I heard nothing back. Until the day AFTER the concert where they told me that it was too late to get a refund and that they never received my emails beforehand.

    Seriously? That seems a little shady if you ask me o.O

    The good news is I went ahead and filed a dispute with my credit card company and they never took action to fight it, so I didn’t have to pay the $90 :)
