cheaptotes.com disappointment

Recommended Posts

I would call them to see what they will do for you but overall what you got does not look too bad but if it's the color is too far off then maybe return them.

They look fine, BUT I agree...they are not the same bags as pictured in the photo. You didn't get what you expected...what they advertised, so I can see being upset. Hope it works out...I'd pursue that refund.

Good luck with customer service. Let us know what happens.
Hi,

Just wondering which teal cheaptotes you bought. We are looking at some of the cheaptotes. Have you gotten them already?

Plus, to the original poster, I would call them back, that is not what the picture says it is.

I bought the cotton teal canvas tote bags from cheaptotes. I'm happy with them but FI would like ones that can stand up on their own and I was starting to think about them b/c they look a bit bigger to accomodate my growing list of OOT items. I think I'll stick to the teal, though, especially after this thread... maybe it will stop me from going overboard with purchases... lol :)

Hmmmm.... I haven't looked that much at them, but I'm looking at those ones too, or the Gusett Non Woven Tote, or the smaller, 8x8 gift bags.
However, we are adding more items to our OOT, coasters, wine charms, flashlight, and that is just to start. So, those small bags might be too small. :)

What are you putting in them? Oh, and what does OOT mean? LoL.

OOT means out-of-town :)
I'm putting in them pashminas for the girls, caps for the boys... thinking of towels, which is why we were thinking of the other ones (plus FI wants something that can stand up).... and then some odds and ends like sun screen, lip balm, lotion, pen, notepad, etc... still working on them and trying to decide exactly what I want :)
Here is a picture of the teal totes, which might help you to decide. Let me know if you have any other questions :)

Just as a quick update, for anyone interested in their customer service: Getting Cheaptotes on the phone has not been easy. I have called their numbers, all of them, just to receive a "mailbox is full" message.

 

An email to the company, stating that I was unhappy with my order and requesting a customer service agent call me, only garnered a response email that re-stated my order and the fact that their stock indicated this was what they sent. Um, huh?

 

I have sent a more explanatory (and firm!) email, but have not yet heard a word. I'll let you know what happens....

Okay, so I got a call from one of the cheaptotes people today. She claimed that the bags they show on their site are, indeed, the ones I received.huh02.gif

 

But whether or not that's really the case (the pics in my first post seem to imply otherwise, but I swear I'm not judging! lol), she did say that I could return them for a full refund, minus shipping. So, I'm happy to report that my faith in internet shopping has been restored, and I can recommend Cheaptotes for following up on their customer service inquiries.

 

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Really good to know that the differences I was seeing were visible to you, too!
