Snapfish began charging me $14.95 per month for something I never ordered, then claimed that I had signed up for a program that isn't even listed on their website. I asked for photos that totalled $3.95, and was charged an additional 2 dollars plus the monthly fee, which I noticed after two months. I was directed to a customer service number that sent my call to India, where they told me there was nothing they could do. Then I contacted the VALUEPASS people, who said I had signed up for there program. This had NEVER happened. It is a complete scam and I am angry. I contacted my bank to dispute the charges, and they are working on it. BE CAREFUL on the internet
I've used Snapfish for about two years now I believe, this passed year though I havent gotten around to places any orders on there site and thats when it started. Everyday (and I do mean every day) i've been getting sent the same exact email from them basically saying " Order from us or we will delete your photos" They got there point across in the first email really. No reason to spam me everyday for over a month. I've spoken to there live customer service, the first person said they'd fix it but nothing happened, the second person I spoke to said they'd send the issue to the proper people and I should get a response but I have yet to hear anything. And am still getting the emails daily.
This website will actually only accept a credit card with an Australian billing address despite; http://www.snapfish.com.au/helppaymentoptions Nowhere on the site does it say that all other credit cards are discriminated against.
This site is misleading and wastes people's time because they find out right at the end that they cannot complete the online shop. Their customer support cannot offer any other way to make payment to complete the order (even Australian bank account direct transfer).
How can we stop this??
I had a HORRIBLE experience with Snapfish in ordering Christmas cards. They did not send me enough envelopes to send out all of my cards, in fact, 1/4 of them. When I called to have the envelopes sent out immediately to rectify the situation, they told me they would fix it. 4 days later I have yet to receive those envelopes. I called in and had to raise my voice before anything was done and any questions were answered. They couldn't tell me when my envelopes would arrive nor did they send them with any priority at all.
With all of the other online picture websites for digital pictures, cards, etc. please look into using someone else. You will save yourself a lot of headache. Try Shutterfly or Kodak or one of the others instead and tell your friends to look elsewhere as well.
A lady at work is retiring and so we wanted to make a photobook. We put a rush on it so that we could receive...
I thought I had found the perfect christmas gifts for my familiy. I ordered 2 collage mouse pads, 1 aprand, 1 magic mug and 2 collage mugs... after 10 days I resive 2 collage mouse pads and nothing else... I write and an email to customer service and get the response that they will try and send the order again.
today I resive a new package from snapfish... all the things were there BUT!!!
One of the mugs are NOT ours. The pictures on it is nor our child an the text is not anything I wrote.
I am PISSED!!! there is only 8 days until we celebrate christmas here in Denmark and I really doubt that the right mug will be here in time.
And what about the mug that we resived that is not ours...?
It is really not a great way to keep customers coming back...
(sorry for my bad english - I am danish and I don't use english in writeing that often)
Ordered the free photo book offer available through Oprah Nov. 18 (ordered 1 free book plus 2 extra copies). Estimated shipping date was a week later. Now, on Dec. 11, it still has not shipped. CAlled a week ago and was told to wait until the 9th...it should be there. The "service" rep didn't even check on anything. Just looked at the latest date it should arrive and told me to wait. Last week the order said "printed", now it says "received and in process". Clearly this company was not prepared for heavy business. I will put in a dispute with my credit card company until I receive this. It's supposed to be Christmas gifts, but I have my doubts. I wouldn't do business with them again. Try another company if you want online photos. I don't mind mistakes, but I expect service when there is one.
I originally had HP photo, for free, as I purchased an HP machine in the early 2003. Then HP sold off to Snapfish. Then Snapfish came 'free' (it had always been to be before as HP Photo) to Comcast users. Then I moved and they would NOT let me change my account info. Not only that, I can no longer download my photos as I could with HP Photo, and if I do, they're half the size as I uploaded. This is 2008, and Snapfish took over in 2005. WHY they won't let me change something as simple as my e-mail address, who knows!
On 11/2/08 I received an e-mail from Snapfish telling me that if I don't 'purchase' something from them that they are going to close my account. Yes, the account with them I had no choice in, and that I have no ability to change. I immediately responded asking them why do I have to purchase, and if they're really going to close it. I asked that they send my my library on CD so they can close my account.
I have gone through (2) computers and ALL my photos are on that account. I would be DEVISTATED if they closed it; it's bad enough I can't retreive them without them looking like a postage stamp! My lesson learned by not making my own back-up, but shame on them for 'threatening' me with these e-mails when they don't even have the courtesy to respond. As far as I know, in one week I won't be able to access my last 5+ years of photos!
DO NOT USE SNAPFISH!
Alicia Rafferty, the wedding was beautiful. I feel like I was there. Unfortunately, Snapfish royally screwed up my order. I was sent 232 photos of the best day of someone else's life along with my own photos, many of which were missing. I am completely ticked at the response I received when I called Snapfish's 1-800 customer support number, especially after spending over $80 and it was my first order with the company. First of all, someone who barely spoke English and was probably in some call center in a foreign country somewhere answered. He was rude and condescending when I tried to explain the problem with my order. After being put on hold for several minutes, he finally agreed to issue credit for the missing pictures. I insisted on free shipping since it was not my fault that the order was wrong, but had to ask for it myself.
When MY problem was finally resolved, I asked what we could do about the 232 precious pictures I had received in error which belong to someone else. His response was "nothing, no need to return them". I said "what about the woman who ordered those? I have her name and barcode number. Will you be contacting her?" He rudely said "I don't need to know her name. If she doesn't receive her pictures, then she can call us". Obviously, she is not going to get her pictures. I placed a reorder of my missing prints with the credit I was issued, but I can assure you, it will be my last order with Snapfish.
In closing, sorry Alicia... I am truly concerned about your pictures, but Snapfish customer services apparently couldn't give a crap. I will hold on to them for a while. Chances are you may want to write a complaint too and will stumble across this posting... if so, respond. I would be happy to send them back to you. As for Snapfish, we are done.
Don't get me wrong. I used to love snapfish.com. I'd order prints for amazingly affordable prices, pay swiftly with a credit card, and have my high quality prints in a matter of days. I loved them.
Last Thursday, I ordered about 40 prints from Snapfish.com after receiving a coupon in my email (free shipping! yay!). The coupon wasn't being accepted, so I tried calling customer service. Their computers were down (go figure) and I was told to call back in 30-45 minutes. Before I could get a question in, I was hung up on. Twice.
I finally got a hold of someone about an hour later, and they took care of my order manually and honored the coupon which was expiring the same day. I received an email on May 30th saying they had been shipped. Fabulous.
It's now Friday afternoon. The mail has come. No pictures. This means I now have to wait another 3 days. (I had them shipped to my work.) I've been waiting for them for a week.
I knew I was going to run into a problem when someone with a thick Indian accent I could barely understand took my phone call this afternoon.
The guy proceeded to argue with me about the shipping dates. I told them that if they shipped on May 30th, and it takes 3-5 business days, I should have them by now. He then tells me that processing takes 1-3 days, and shipping takes 3-5 business days, not including Saturday and Sunday. Okay, GREAT. I repeat to him that Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are all business days. I also let him know that the United States Postal Service carries mail on Saturdays, so regardless of Snapfish.com is closed on Saturday, the mail isn't. He then continues to argue with me, and that I should actually allow 7-9 business days for the delivery. I hung up. I wasn't getting anywhere with the guy.
I then called back, and again got someone with a thick Indian accent. I got nowhere with them.
I called back a 3rd time and requested to speak to a supervisor. The (again, Indian accent) girl asked me for my email address, and how to spell it. I gave her my information, and simply requested to speak to a supervisor. After about 2 minutes (which I knew she was using to read notes the representatives probably left on my account), I asked again to speak to a supervisor. She then informed me that I should receive my delivery today.
I informed her that mail had already come for today, and that I did not receive my order, and that was why I wished to speak to a supervisor because I wasn't getting anywhere with the regular customer service reps. You know what she did? She told me to wait until the end of the day. I again asked for a supervisor. She told me they were in a meeting and could not be bothered, and again told me to wait until the end of the day.
Um, THE MAIL ALREADY CAME.
She then repeated to wait until the end of the day and to call back if I hadn't received anything.
I. then. spoke. like. this. to. get. it. into. her. head. that. the. mail. already. came.
And for a third time I asked to speak to a supervisor (all the while trying to maintain my cool), and she then placed me on hold for 5 minutes.
I hung up.
And that marks the termination of my relationship with snapfish.com
I signed up in December 2007 for a free trail of Snapfish. My daughter wanted me to join so she could send me...
Instant win game, look inside to win, shows xbox, hp, desttop, among a few other things. Open up it says congratulations you've won 25 free prints. To redeem your priz visit www.Snapfish.com/shrekprints and enter your winning code. Shows the code. When you type in code it comes back has code not recognize! Very disappointing!
I have called. I have emailed. My emails go unanswered or bounce, which is more typically the case. I have been trying to order a photo book in my cart for 3 weeks for my son's 2nd birthday, which has now come and gone. Snapfish has terrible service, a poorly designed web site (Hello, a website who has a defunct email listed on its site... [protected]@snapfish.com). Their "escalations" department was supposed to get back to me in 24-48 hours. That was a week ago. The icing on the cake? They cap your email complaint email at 240 characters, and won't let you submit it unless it's less than that, but they don't tell you where the 240 character cutoff is. Last time I checked, it was 2008 and counting characters was a fairly simple. Tool to offer your customers. Come on, help your customers out. All I want is to order my photo book (Which took me 4 months to complete) and move away from snapfish as quickly as I can. Save yourself some trouble and never use snapfish again.
In March I ordered prints from our last trip to Japan. I ordered a bunch (200-some) 4x6 photos, 1 or 2 5x7's, and 3 8x10's. The 4x6's and the 5x7's arrived in a few days but the 8x10's were missing.
In 2005, I ordered calendars from Snapfish which featured photos from my wedding. They sent me calendars with someone else's kids on them. Just to give you some background. But I have been their loyal customer for over 3 years.
I emailed Snapfish and asked if the photos had been shipped or even printed. Instead of answering my question they told me to wait. So, three separate times I asked if they had been printed or shipped. Three times I was ignored and told to wait. Wait? Why? So I can figure out Snapfish never did print them? Yes!
So now 23 or so days have gone by and I contacted them again. I was expecting an email that said they were sorry and that the photos had been printed and were on their way. Instead I got an automated email that I have been given a credit for 3 8x10's. So, it looks like they were never printed, but instead of telling me this, and providing some form of customer service, they just sent me an automated email. This is the crappiest customer service I have ever witnessed, and my first job was at McDonald's.
I wrote back and asked for a refund instead of a prints credit. I'm not stupid; I'm not placing another order so they can screw me one more time and I can spend another three weeks waiting for prints that will never arrive. Instead of reading my email, the customer service rep told me that the issue had been handled and that I have received a credit.
It remains to be seen if I will ever see my photos or my money. But I will not be buying prints from them again.
Hi, I have been using snapfish for almost a year now and up until January this year they have been very good...
This is under investigation at this time. However I feel I should let people know of the scam that is going...
We received a Shrek 3 DVD for Christmas of 2007. There was an "Instant Win" game piece attached to the DVD. Upon opening the game piece, we noticed we had won 25- 4"x6" photo prints. When we went to the website (www.snapfish.com/shrekprints) provided to redeem our prize, we received a screen indicating that the site was shut down until January 17, 2008 do to fraud. I have been trying several times per day to redeem the game piece since January 17th but all I keep getting is that the site is very busy do to the holidays. The holidays are over so why are receiving this message and what type of scam is this company pulling? I am frustrated and angered and will be boycotting this company until such times my complaint has been satisfied.
I have also filed a formal complaint with the Better Business Bureau, Hewlett Packrd, and [redacted]s!
I brought a shrek dvd and it said I won some free picture prints but once I went on line it said the prize alredy been claimed. I would like to know how you win something and cant claim it.
I too wish I had read the complaints on this website before patronizing snapfish. I ordered a photo ornament on december 11, after confirming on the snapfish website that I would receive it in time for christmas. I was pleased to get an email on december 17 stating that it had shipped. When I hadn't received it by christmas eve, I emailed customer support and received an email that seemed to ignore then fact that christmas is a "time is of the essence" kind of date, blamed the delay on the post office and stated that it left their hands on the 17th. Sort of like - "we know it's frustrating, but it's the post office's fault, not ours - - let us know how it turns out. "
Well I was suspicious because the us post office usually has its stuff together. And why didn't snapfish give me a usps track and confirm code? So when I got the package on december 28th, I saw that there was a usps track and confirm code right on the front of the envelope. So I want to the post office website and entered it. Now, the usps website won't tell you when the package with electronic postage was shipped - - snapfish said dec 17 - - but it will tell you when the shipping label was printed - - december 20th. So... Unless the us post office is conspiring to ruin snapfish's reputation, it appears that snapfish has lied to me.
I have emailed the customer service rep to give this company a chance to explain itself, but based on the other complaints on this website, I doubt they'll be able to. I understand that quality can sometimes be and issue and that from time to time a mistake can be made - - but this goes to the ethics of a company. You either have them or you don't. I still leave room for the fact that this could be an isolated instance, but based on the other comments here, I don't think i'll ever use snapfish again.
I downloaded my pictures to Snapfish.com and they were "supposedly" shipped on 12/5/07. I waited for a couple of weeks and no pictures and nothing on the website other than they charged my credit card! Called on 12/26/07 and had to wait at least 10min while the customer no-service person said it would be shipped out immediately and they had my pictures. The website showed they were shipped out 12/27/07 and I still haven't received them. Nothing on my personal website showing the pictures... They were supposed to be shipped out for overnight delivery since they never shipped them in the first place. Where are the pictures?
Last time I ever use this company... so beware!
