    The official RedsZone Consumer Reports thread

    This thread is for RedsZone members to share their consumer experiences with businesses, national or online, that other RedsZone members may find useful.

    I'd like to draw some attention to my negative experience with the online print company OvernightPrints.com.

    I ordered 100 business cards. Paid for expedited shipping. Today, I received someone else's order of 500 business cards. When I contacted customer support, they let me know that my order was also sent to the incorrect address, and they offered to reprint my cards, deliver them 4-5 days later, and refund me the $6 different between expedited shipping and standard shipping. When I asked for a full shipping refund and/or a refund of a portion of my order cost, they said they would not do that.

    I then went online and saw their Yelp page: http://www.yelp.com/biz/overnight-prints-louisville and realized that my experience is not uncommon. Buyer beware.

    Yes, but the cards themselves, were they a subtle off-white? Was the lettering raised? Was it Silian Rail? Did they have a watermark?

    What makes this thread "official"?

    I'm not consumer reporting in this thread until I get a ruling on the officialness of the thread.

    I thought this thread was about Consumer Reports, the magazine/website.

    The thread title has "official" with a lower case o. I can not consider this to be official.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Larry sent me the $25 required to call this an official thread. It can continue.

    I thought Boss had to throw a leech into fire and speak the words "Official Thread".

    Those were the old rules. Ever since Coombs drove the leeches out of North America, you either have to find a penny or send $25 to a board member who has been here since the Milton era.

    I think the Dos Equis "World's most interesting man" is a Jim Coombs wannabee.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Talk about false advertising. I drank 12 of those and instead of becoming interesting I just became an a-hole.

    But you probably seemed interesting to yourself at the time.

    How could you tell the difference?
