Staples - Poor Return Policy
After 14 days, you cant return any product to STAPLES directly, you need to contact the manufacturer. I bought an HP Printer from Staples 2 months ago, and its not working. HP agreed and decided to send me a new printer. However, only if I give them my credit card to ensure I send back the defective one within 14 days. I find this terrible customer service, so I thought I could simply return the defective printer to my local STAPLES location......
.....NOT! They refused to handle it unless I bought their extended warranty service plan. So let me see, they WONT take the product back, but, if I paid additional money at the time of purchase they WILL take the product back. Thats why I will never buy from STAPLES again, poor customer service.
Contacting the local store manager directly AND calling their customer service line was no help at all. Understanding a problem and making a decision to ensure your keeping your customers happy and LOYAL is what its all about. STAPLES clearly does not understand this.
I am a Sales Manager in the Northeast responsible for 7 sales reps and all of their office supply expense authorizations, I am immediately instructing them that any purchases at any STAPLES will NOT be approved. Thank god my factory does business exclusively at WB Mason.
