Not spending Eighty dollars on something you didn’t even mean to buy: BIG BARGAIN

For the love of God people, check your bank statements religiously.

So, remember the infamous order to Fredricks of Hollywood?  Well, the online ordering was down, and i ended up doing it over the phone.  Well, the creep who took my order said that he was going to be putting in information about a FOH membership card, and if didn’t want it i could just return it.  I said, yeah, sure, whatever, thinking it was just some usual card offer and i would toss it when i got it.  Well, that cretin charged me $80 without telling me, signing me up for membership.  By saying that i would allow him to put the offer in my order, it apparently amounted to agreeing to a charge that he NEVER mentioned.   So i called, deathly politely giving FOH’s customer service line my ten cents on why this was the CRAPPIEST SCAM OF ALL TIME.  If you’re going to charge me $80 for something, tell me that’s what i’m agreeing to.  Don’t just make some vague statement like, “we’d like to give you information on a membership card…” No, no, tell me outright or consider yourself to be a big fat liar who tried to steal your customer’s hard-earned money. 

So the lesson, everyone, is

a.  Do not agree to any promotional offer, as benign as it sounds, without asking if there is a charge of ANY kind.

b. Check your statements for any random charges that are unaccounted for.

c.  Don’t screw with my money, b/c i got tons to pay in student loans and i work damn hard for every penny i earn. 

 On a happier note, i’m going shopping for the entire day tomorrow to celebrate being on break, so hopefully i’ll find some good stuff to share!

Happy (and careful) shopping
