The Facts: A SaveMore Warning

SaveMore Daily DealsWith all the deals I bring you, there are inevitably some issues. Companies don’t always hold up their end of the bargain, and I do my best to let you know when that is true and to help you get it rectified.

So, in the effort to fully disclose everything I know about some of the companies I post about, I want you to know that SaveMore is having some serious customer service issues. Items aren’t arriving. Emails, phone calls and Facebook posts have been ignored. Some of the stores that are supposed to be fulfilling orders have simply shut down and disappeared overnight.

In all fairness, I have bought no less than 20 different vouchers from SaveMore and have yet to have an issue that was not rectified. I have had some issues – including a site that couldn’t get it’s stuff together and kept sending me the wrong item and another site that charged shipping that made the “deal” not so good anymore. Both times my money was refunded, although it did take a bit to get a response from SaveMore.

SaveMore offers good deals – great deals sometimes. But I think they’ve quickly outgrown their framework and have not added the personnel to be able to keep up and maintain the level of customer service necessary to be successful in the competitive world of daily deal sites.

Whether or not you purchase from SaveMore in the future is up to you. I may post a deal here or there that I think is a great deal, from a reputable company that you can order online without having to deal with any of the common SaveMore issues. But I will always link back to this warning in each post so that you are aware that there are at times issues with SaveMore customer service.

What has your experience with SaveMore been like?

Here’s a link to the BBB rating for SaveMore. It is an F – the lowest possible rating.

  1. I ordered an item - a gift card for Auto Zone - from them over a month ago. I never received it and my calls to them went unreturned. I ended up filing a disputed with my bank over it because I was never able to contact anyone in customer service with SaveMore. I was really disappointed with their lack of customer service. I'm glad (for lack of a better word) to know I'm not the only one with this problem.

  2. AndiMac - Sorry to hear you are struggling. I think they are probably completely overwhelmed but that's still not an excuse and doesn't help you replaced that gift.

  3. We ordered three Target Gift cards and the 50 restaurant.com cards came with it and we received them with no problem though redeeming them took a day because the website to redeem them crashed. It took 2-3 weeks to ship them.

    I did buy a $5 for $10 subway gift card that I printed out, and the person at the one store had no idea how to honor it. I guess I need to try another store. It's just a printed paper with a bar code.

  4. That was the $50 restaurant.com gift cards - not 50 of them :)

  5. The subway voucher was an eversave deal actually...not savemore but thanks for the warning on savemore. My target cards worked fine. We redeemed them yesterday.

    What are your thoughts on restaurant.com?

  6. I use restaurant.com - especially when they are heavily discounted like they are right now. But you just have to know going into it that they are really just high value coupons and NOT gift certificates in the traditional sense.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
