I sent the email below to an R&F Sales Support consultant after my credit card was charged $270 for an autoship order that I told my consultant I did not want. The order went through accidentally and then later got lost after my consultant tried to re-route the order back to R&Fs' warehouse. Also below my email, you can see how the customer support person originally answered my request for a refund. Really just completely could care less that I am out $270 for a product I never ordered......
I have to say that I am very disappointed with the service I received from Rodan and Fields support representatives. When I pay top dollar for a product, I expect exceptional service, or at least above average service. Even Zappos and Amazon refund shipping charges if the error was on the part of the seller. And they do not charge the credit card until after the product is received. If you are going to charge the credit card when the order is processed, you better at least provide tracking information, require a signature and be able to stop processing before shipping. I do not feel like I was valued as a “preferred customer” or as a customer at all. It would have been very easy to stop processing or to send me a prepaid shipping label after the mistake was realized. And for all my trouble, at least offer an apology. Instead, I was blamed and ultimately paid for someone else's mistake.
On top of all the hassle, the products I did order and receive were no different or better than any other high-end skincare products. I will not be asking my consultant for a refund. As you know, the reason people order these products in the first place is because they are pushed so heavily by relatives and friends who trust this company and are trying to make extra money for their family. It’s disgraceful that you put your customers and your own sales consultant in that kind of an awkward position.
I will never again be swayed into buying a product from a consultant who offers auto-ship, preferred status or tries to recruit me into the “business”. All of these tactics are red-flags and usually spell scam. I was concerned before and now I am convinced that Rodan and Fields is just another lousy, pyramid scam of a company. I’m very sorry I ever fell for the hype and I will continue to make my feelings known whenever I am approached or find myself in a conversation about this company.
Have a great day!
Thank you for the email. I do not see that the order has been routed back to us. We would need the order back into the warehouse before moving forward.
Thank you and have a wonderful day,
General Support Coordinator
