    Default Don't by from Welding Supplies from IOC !

    I have a BITCH ! Ordered some equipment from "Welding Supplies from IOC". Its a on line Co. I got a Gift Card and never saw a Expired Date on it.(My Bad.) Tried to use it and it would not go. Ok so I sent a Email and asked what could be done.I was told," nothing could be done."
    If you do go to them (I hope you wont) if you get a Gift card use it right away !
    If I gave a Gift Card to a customer and it was from long time ago I would always take it !
    They get a "BIG BLACK EYE from me !
    So pass it on if you will.
    Thanks,Randy

    So you screwed up and it's their fault? They only promised to honor it to a specific date. Presumably, they would have done so. How is you not paying attention any fault of theirs? This is your responsibility, not theirs. Shame on you for blaming them for your lack of attention! And shame on you for trying to hurt their business because you made a mistake!!

    How much was the gift card for?

    How long was the card good for?

    I've seen many gift cards with expiration dates.

    I don't think a thread title like this one is warranted for such an issue.

    There was a big court case about gift cards a few years back and now they are not supposed to expire if they were actually purchased and not a reward in most states

    I would say the lack of personal responsibility is one of the main reasons this County is all screwed up.

    Well, I gave up the $50. Or maybe they just kept it ?

    I bought my welder from IOC and got exemplary service. Part of the problem with business is the motto "the customer is always right" That position gives lots of unscrupulous custmers the opportunity to run roughshod over business and leads folks to believe they are owed something. Let he who made the error bear the consequense.
