CSP Price Protection disappointment!

Postby papelet » Tue Aug 27, 2013 11:02 pm

Hello Guys,

Some of you may know about this topic way more than me and probably more than the customer service girl that took care of me (probably not her fault but poor training)

So about a month and 3 weeks ago I purchased a Nexus 4 Android phone from the Google Play Store for $349.00 and just today I went to the same site just to find out the phone its advertised for $249! I was like: What? My CSP just got me $100 back!
Well, it didn't happen. What a disappointment, what a hassle!

-I thought, after providing all the information, they would do all the work for their member. Right?:
**within 90 days of purchase
**fully charged on card
**notify them within 10 days of advertisement
**Item description, where to find it, transaction date, post date, amount paid
**Identical item NOT from a auction website.
**etc, etc, etc

Nop! I thought she was filling up the claim for me but after all that she just offered to e-mail me the form so I can do it myself, Oh and send all the information below.

-24 minutes conversation and I gave up because they wanted a hard copy of the website, a copy of my statement, the original receipt with the last 4 of my CC and some other stuff I can't remember because I stopped paying attention.

-They should take a look at Citi's Price Rewind program, that is hassle free price protection.

I'm actually regretting opening a checking account with them and the Freedom I just received in the mail a month ago...

Sorry about the rant but I had to let it out.

I know that call probably made it a major turn off to call back but..it sounds like the rep wasn't very helpful, did you want to try and call again?

better yet if you find a chase branch near you, go in and ask the banker or manager to help, dangle the idea of you opening an account in front of them like a carrot and have them take care of the claim

it might be less painful and of a hassle for you

I've always had the impression that most of the "benefits" Visa Signature cards offer are a hassle to actually take advantage of.
Blue Cash Preferred ($24K), Costco TrueEarnings ($8K), Better Balance Rewards ($6K), CashForward ($15K), Sallie Mae Rewards ($10K), Quicksilver ($17K), AARP Rewards ($15K), Freedom ($15K), Double Cash ($16.5K), It ($28.5K), Fidelity Investment Rewards ($18K), Cash+ ($11K)
