On Sunday we ended up ordering a new mattress (a Vi-Spring). They happened to be the only store open on sunday selling them so we went ahead and placed the order because we wanted it by friday. We were told it was in stock, it was not. But it was in Vi-Springs Warehouse about 5 miles from ABC's in NJ. It took 4 calls and 3 hours to make sure it was going to be here on Friday. Okay That is not totally true it will only be delivered as far as the office less then half way. We've to have it taken upstate 3rd party or it would have been 2 or 3 weeks! It's now Wednesday and the two other stores I emailed about the bed just got back too us with a price of $1,855 CHEAPER. The other stores could have it here by Friday (Upstate with white glove service) and they were on the west coast! On top of everything ABC wanted to charge us $300 for half Delivery when they are making out like thieves in the night! Total billed from ABC for the mattress ended up was almost $15,000! WE WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE SHYTERS AGAIN!!!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
