Red Envelope Rewards / Unauthorized Charges

1 Los Angeles, CA, United States Review updated:

I bought something off of for Christmas so this was 7 months ago and now I'm getting a $14.95 charge on my debit for RedEnvelope Rewards. I called and they said it was a promotion and that they had sent me an e-mail and I confirmed thru the e-mail. I never received any e-mails nor did I confirm anything. I call and the guy said "ok we will cancel and you won't receive any further charges, can I help you with anything else?" So I was like Yeah i need a refund. They said it would take 7-10 days. We'll see what happens. ###!

    Thank you so much for the comments, . On my credit card bill I received multiple charges and each time the number was different but the amount was the same. Unfortunately the number listed on my statement was one number short so i could never call it. However i finally figured it out, thanks to this website, and I called up and complained very very nicely and asked to speak with the person's supervisor. All of the charges were refunded, and it took me just a few moments. The number to call is 1888-739-6272

    I happened to check online a credit card I had not used since December of 2008. To my surprise I found that this place called red Envelope Rewards had been charging this credit card $14.95 a month for the past 10 months without any authorization of my knowledge.

    I purchased an item last December from Red Envelope but never saw or was asked about this "Rewards " program.

    If this scam is something that this firm does, I will advertise to everyone I can not to purchase from Red Envelope.

    Red Envelope Rewards Encore Marketing - Enrolled me in a program and I believe they will start charging me and I didn't want to enroll in a program
    Red Envelope Rewards Encore Marketing
    United States

    I bought a baby gift on Red Envelope and they said to click here for the code for $15 of savings on my next purchase, once I did that then it said thank you for activating your 30 day trial period with RedEnvelope RewardsSM. It still said I'd receive a $15 GIFT CODE by email but I never got that, they just enrolled me in some rewards program that I didn't intend to enroll in. And from reading other complaints on Red Envelope, it appears I will start getting charged on my credit card. I don't know how to stop it. Can some one help me get this stopped and help me get out of the rewards program?

    United States

    After placeing an order with RedEvelope they automatically sign me up to their rewards program. I have no knowlege of agreeing to this rewards program but keep getting a 14.99 charge to my credit card account. I have reported it to their customer service and have ask them to discountinue the membership service charge. But still get charge.

    Encore Marketing / Red Envelope - unauthorized credit card charges
    Red Envelope
    United States

    Red Envelope has been charging my credit card 14.95 per month for their "membership rewards" program which I never signed up for. My husband thought I authorized the charge and I thought it was something of his. This has been going on for at least a year. I purchased an item from them previouslywhich is how I assume they got my information. I won't be doing that again.

    RedEnvelope - Doesn't care about defective merchandise!
    United States

    I purchased men's Acorn slippers from RedEnvelope a little over a year ago. Over the last few days they've fallen apart. The sole split open on one, then another. It's as if the thing just dissolved.

    I called RedEnvelope today, and explained the situation -- including that they've only been worn indoors (which the treads would have shown) and not been exposed to any abnormal use. A rep and a supervisor told me that they take returns for only 180 days, no matter what. He acknowledged that they might be defective, but after 180 days their policy did not allow them to take them back, replace them, or anything.

    Unfortunately, I bought a pair for my wife a couple months ago. Those are, like mine, bound to fall apart way too soon. They refused to take those back, too -- within their 180-day window -- because (said the supervisor) if something is defective they have to be notified immediately and the 180-day window does not apply. This despite the evidence that the product is defective.

    I ordered the NYT bound book with personalization they were selling for $74.99 with GUARANTEED delivery on or before 12/22/2011. After the run around, I discovered on 12/23/2011 that the book had not even been shipped yet and R/E blamed their "outside" vendor. I paid extra for shipping and personalization and was very upset at the lack of follow through from the company. I complained to the BBB in San Diego where Red Envelope is located, requesting a full refund. I received an email from Red Envelope yesterday about how important customer service is to them and that they were refunding in full what I paid. This morning after checking my bank account I discovered that Red Envelope again DEBITED they cost of the book from my account. Since this is an account I only keep $5.00 and only use for online shopping, I was also hit with an overdraft fee of $34.00 on top of the $74.99 Red Envelope AGAIN charged me. So now I have paid $74.99 TWICE and a $34.00 bank fee on top of it. Oh yeah, the book FINALLY arrived on 12/28. Merry Christmas. Red Envelope is a HORRIBLE company - DO NOT USE THEM.

    Red Envelope - Delayed delivery by 3 days
    Red Envelope
    United States
    Phone: 877-733-3683

    Ordered 12 cupcakes to be delivered for my (out of state) Sisters' Birthday. The day they are due to be delivered, and I made her sit home all morning waiting for the delivery, I get an email at 2:10 PM telling me the delivery has been postponed by 3 days! They offer refund for shipping "mishap" and $10 coupon code for "future" use. Really!? You leave a customer stuck, when they pay extra for a Saturday delivery, knowing nothing else can be delivered by her Birthday, on a Sunday. I am heartbroken that my Sister now has nothing from us for her Birthday. Shame on this company for not calling me themselves to explain and apologize. Shame on them for telling me I would receive a refund in 7-10 days.

    Signed, UNHappy Birthday!
