What to do? And Our Company!

1 comments

I thought this was worth front page. One of our readers made a little oopsie when placing her product order resulting in her not receiving a discount on her order. Upon realizing she asked her and because I just haven't been able to be here as often as I like didn't get her answer in a timely matter. She, smart cookie that she is she did the best thing. She called the Company directly and received her answer and was very pleased. I will paste below the comments for you and really appreciate her sharing this information with us.

I want to EXPRESS that whenever you have a question, please do not take an answer off of a blog. It may be right, it may not.. Double check everything on your wwww.marykayintouch.com site or as this reader did call the Company.

When in doubt, check it out. Better safe than sorry and it never hurts to ask.

From our reader:
I'm fairly new and before my three months were up I made small orders and they added up to the $200 but not $400.
I just put in an order of $200 NOT $400 so I didn't get the discount.
Is there anything I can do about that? Or will I have to just order again and learn from this experience? (I hope not I paid a lot out of pocket)

I got my answer :)
I called the company and they were really nice about it :)
They're going to let me order the other 200 as my discount and, of course, only charge the shipping fee :)
I'm beginning to like MaryKay very much :)
This website helped a lot! :)

Warning to All Consultants!

8 comments
Here we go again!! Please be cautious and always remember,"if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is". The fake orders are starting again. I heard from the Company today-there is another scam/hoax order situation going on. They said the names vary but many of the addresses have been in Michigan. They are using the Customer Delivery Service. Just because they use a credit card and it doesn't decline, doesn't mean it is a "real" order. The credit card could be stolen and you will be out if Propay doesn't catch it! It is sad that this happens but there are alot of dishonest people in this world willing to pray on an excited consultant.. With all the consultants around the Country, most clients look for consultants close to them so please, please, please, protect yourself!

I left you a response, but the answer to your question is that is very unusual, please let us know if you still haven't heard from anyone. There are more good stories than bad ones, the bad ones just tend to be vocal and tell the same stories over and over and over and over. Please read many of the stories here and decide for yourself.

Please keep in mind... some people don't sit by the phone or the computer 24/7 - -we never know what is going on in someone's lifethings can happen that perhaps made it impossible for the consultant to call you back immediately. I hope you have heard from someone! :)
