Or maybe you'll actually get a refund.:wideeyed:
I told the customer service guy that he should probably find another job, as a company that cannot deliver the only product they produce is probably not long in this world.
The dude answered with kind of a nervous laugh, which told me everything about how things are going at Gannett....
Why exactly, do you want to get the DM Register again?
Folllow their advice, protect the environment and read online (or not at all, and save electricity too). :biggrin:
Otherwise, the coupons in the Sunday Paper are generally pretty good, and since I persist in my hobbies of working on cars and airplanes, and the paper makes good paint overspray protection, I tend to indulge my wife and kids in their ability to sit around on Sunday morning and read the comics.
Good suggestions, but WAY to logical for Phaedrus!!
As much as I detest the Register, I'm willing to sacrifice for the love of my life.
I used to subscribe. I had them automatically deduct the amount each month from a checking account. I got a call one day from them, that if I added the weekend pack to my sunday subscription, I could get Friday and Saturday for only a dollar more. I said sure. The next week, I check my online banking, and they deducted over $500. This caused an overdraft on that particular account. I called and raised hell. They told me that it was an independant sales company that was running the special. I told them I didn't care, it was their problem, and it is causing banking fee's etc.. I got a manager on the phone who had me fax a copy of the letter of overdraft and the fee's that were charged. In the end, they refunded all my money, gave me a month free, and paid me an extra $30 for the trouble of the overdraft and fee. I switched to a monthly bill in the mail that I could send a check in for since I didn't want them to have access to my checking account. The bill was never right. One month it was $7, once it was $25, and then I didn't get a bill for 3 months, then it was $9, and then $245. I never paid the bills, and still got the paper for a good 6 months. Now if I want it for some reason, I just go to the gas station for it. It was such a mess...
Remind me to tip my delivery guy this x-mas....
My paper is always on the front step within a foot of the door so I don't actually have to step outside to find it.
Ah, yes. The final update to this whole sordid affair.
Last week I finally got my full refund from DMR.
Unfortunately it was short the charge for one copy. No explanation as to why that is, but I just want to share with the group that even the DMR cannot even screw up correctly.
What a bunch of incompetent idiots.
