Vitacost - California - deceptive and fraudulent advertising practices

Complaint Rating:  50 % with 2 votes
they may have low prices but i get a slew of deceptive and outright lying 'coupons' and 'codes' in my email and on their website. they refer to discount that are legalistically worded to suggest savings and discounts, and then when you are done with your purchase, you realize most of what you were lead to believe is EXCLUDED!

my latest experience was on the webiste it said $10 off on orders of $50 or more of vitacost products...most people would assume that items bought on the website would qualify as this is vitacost...but no.

Vitacost - double charge/hold on money

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 3 votes
I have ordered from Vitacost for quite some time and of lately they are changing in not a good way. When I ordered in April 2013 with my debit card I came to the rude awakening that they now have a practice of putting a hold on the amount of money needed to pay for the order. This would be fine if the hold is JUST for the amount they need. NOT! They then take the money out of the account and don't let go of the held amount for up to 5 days! IN other words they tie up twice the amount of money than they need. This horrible practice bumped off the payment of my auto insurance which I tried to...

Vitacost - California - Non receipt of product, dodgey service and charges without authorisation

"ABSOLUTE CRAP! Do not use this company! Got a $10 discount coupon, so ordered items totalling to $19 without discount. So with discount a total of $9. Butt evidently the company decided not to honour and circumvent the discount because they probably thought I was too far away and not worth the shipping cost (in astralia). Here are the order of events which happened:

1. Placed order total $9 for 2 items.
2. Got a cancellation email even though they charged me $6.98
3. After I lodged a paypal dispute, they sent me a shipping notice email but on there stated only...

Vitacost - Outdated, Damaged, Broken Seals, Horrible Customer Service Representatives and Worse Supervisors

Posted: 2012-03-15 by    nyliving
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
I have been a Vitacost customer for many years, spent a lot of money purchasing from vitacost and didn’t have a problem until the past two shipments. The items in these last two shipments were thrown into boxes without any bubble wrap or form of protection. As a result the bottles and boxes bounced around in the box with no protection which is probably the part of the reason some of the items in the shipments were damaged. I received bottles of supplements that were dirty, dusty with broken seals, much of the supplements that were sent to me were old or outdated, they posted either one year...

Hi,

I have placed an order at VITACOST on 30th Jan 2012 and order number is 14450871 and shipped by DHL, but I have not received the parcel yet until now (6th March 2012).

I contacted VITACOST several times and they always evaded the issue and asked me to provide our country customs documentation to prove that the parcel never held by the customs. but does any country customs can provide it? It's very funny! I called our custmos and they never provided it before.

I got the email from the carrier DHL and they proved the parcel never arrived my country,...

Vitacost - Customer Service

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
This is one of the worst customer service oriented companies I've had the displeasure of dealing with. The product I ordered was not what their system sent me. I tried to arrange for a replacement, and their customer service management team would not agree to provide a pre-paid return mailing label. Please save yourself the aggravation, and deal with a more reputable company. One that does not have hundreds of complaints on Better Business sites, and complaint sites. It isn't any wonder that they filed for bankruptcy!...

Vitacost - misrepesentation in cost

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
Vitacost withholds shipping cost for financial gain at the cost to the customer. They acknowledge shipping costs from US but fail to inform of Import Vat. A cost they personally avoid by shipping products to a bonded warehouse in Germany, knowing when these products are moved on the cost will be passed on to customer. When customer service is contacted they deny any responsibility, knowledge, control or reimbursement. Evidently they want the customer to belief that Vitacost has no business plan or cost analysis.

Further, if products are returned Vitcost will withhold the additional...

After receiving my first order, saving 25%, I was thrilled. It came on time and was perfect. I referred several friends via the Vitacost "refer a friend program". My friends get a $10 coupon and I will as well, upon my friends first order. All of my friends who signed up did not get the coupon as promised. The "live chat" on their website is vacant and the person who answers the 800 number says they can't help. After having some email dialogue, it became apparent to me my friends were all getting the run around. There is no coupon. It was just a clever way to get people...

Several months ago, I placed an order with Vitacost for supplements. These arrived expired-several months pasted the expiration date. I returned at Vitacost expense and received a new order. Those too were expired; so I asked for a full refund this time. This week I AGAIN received expired supplements that expired in 2010-Sept-one yr past the expiration date. I didn't receive my refund only more expired supplements. I order from Vitacost a lot-no clue to what they are doing now. Will go to my credit card company and file a complaint ~ no longer a customer of Vitacost....

This company offered a free item if a $50.00 minimum purchase was made. The free item was never sent and they refuse to send it saying they ran out of the free product. Of course they have plenty they will sell but no free ones. Sorry excuses for human beings. They will not let you talk to a supervisor. Thieves is what they are and if America was not run by crooked politicians this company would be shut down and people thrown in jail....

I was happy to use vitacost until I placed the last order from them. One of the products I order was not available at that time, but my account said it will be available in few days. I checked back few days later and it said it would not be available few weeks. Few weeks past, it was not still available. I waited more than a month and finally decided to write them several time, no luck. Finally I called them. I waited about 10 mins to speak to a customer service person and I asked her to cancel my order. She said she did and it would appear on your account later. I checked back my account in few...

Vitacost - does not honor price paid

We spend the whole labor day weekend purchased over $600 from Vitacost. They cancelled over 70 of my items without any reasons. (They said they had a computer computer technical error, but why didn't they shut down their website for those three days?). They are still selling these items but at a different price on their website. What a rip-off! What a waste of time. My husband would have worked during those hours he spend on browsing Vitacost. He charges $135 per hour if he work on his own job. A class action should be filed. I am definitely interested....
