JCP: Now That's Customer Service!
Wow! If you follow the Bargain Barton Facebook page, you may have read my post reaching out for help dealing with an issue I was having with JCPenney. On Cyber Monday, I had placed a $40+ order for a pair of boots and snowpants for a family in need. I got confirmation that the order should arrive in about 5-7 business days. A week later, I logged into my account and there was no record of my order. This worried me, so I immediately e-mailed customer service and reached out on their Facebook page. Other than being told to send a private message, I heard nothing for several days. In the mean time, I was relieved that my order did arrive!
Finally, I received the following message on Facebook:
Hey Erin - My apologies for the delayed response. I checked your order and it has invoiced which means it is preparing to ship out. I am so sorry for the delay. I would love to send you (5) $10 Merchandise Certificates for the delay if you would just confirm the address I would be sending them to.
Now, that, in my opinion, is going above in beyond! Decent customer service is so rare today. While it took them a long time to respond, I did receive my order in a timely manner, was apologized to, treated with respect, and given certificates that more than covered the cost of my order! Major props to JCPenney!
