  • Mood:

I fought the books and I won?

back story: at Evil's wedding, the chuppah bearers were given Barnes and Nobel gift cards. I ordered books from Barnes and Nobel.com using the gift card and my credit card. While checking the order before it shipped, I had to cancel a book I bought because they switched it for the incorrect book. The bill stated that they charged my gift card only $11 out of $25 which makes no sense. I emailed them adn told them they should charge all of it to the gift card.

After 7 emails and much math (and a smidgen of hate), Barnes and Nobel has refunded to me money for which I didn't ask. I'm not sure how I like the "throw money at it so it goes away" policy but I essentially get a free book out of my recent orders. Plus, they may have refilled my gift card which may mean more free books. THis shall be invsetigated this weekend.

Crazy corporations.
