HOW TO COMPLAIN AND GET RESULTS

1.0 WHY COMPLAIN?

One study found that only 4% of people who were dissatisfied requested a refund.

That left 96% who felt angry, frustrated, helpless, and broke who could have gotten their money back.

So here is the short and simple answer to why you should complain: The product or service you paid for did not perform as promised or as you expected. Therefore the seller should refund your money.

I estimate that a household will save 1%-4% per year by always returning items. You should insist on a refund if the vendor is reluctant. This means you would save $300 to $1200 a year simply by getting what is owed to you.

The majority of returns will be very easy. Bring the item back in new condition along with the receipt during a 30 day time period and most stores will refund your money with no questions asked.

However, there will be a number of times when you will have to do a lot more. In the next pages we will explain how to rattle a company's cage and get your money back when the business isn't being cooperative.
