Your customer service is worthless! I have been trying to get a response since Tuesday.

1) I have managed the customer service function, and find it is always better to give a longer response time and delight the customer when they are contacted in a shorter period of time. If 24 hours (or even 48+, as is my case) is not a realistic target, DO NOT ADVERTISE IT AS SUCH! State "3 business days", and if you contact someone in 3 hours or even 36, they will not be disappointed.

2) As for favorites, I have previously had items in favorites for greater than a month, and they never disappeared before. They also have not disappeared when they were no longer available -- I would check every few days, and some of them would be unavailable and I would physically remove them. I have NEVER had my whole favorites section disappear in one instance.

As stated previously, I spend thousands of dollars a year on your site, probably about 25% of it from going back to my favorites section. I do not know off the top of my head what is in there (your CS rep said she could add them back, but that's why I have them bookmarked, so I do not have to remember them! -- so I have no idea what was in there).

At the least, I think I deserve some kind of compensation for my aggravation!

Hi, Kari,

Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out to us via Site Jabber. I am so sorry for the delay in response from our customer service team. We are receiving an unusually high volume and this is unfortunately causing a longer than expected wait. I assure you this is not typical of our dedicated customer service team. I see you did speak with our customer service supervisor on Friday and he was able to go over your concerns with the Favorites tab as well as gave you his direct contact information for any further issues. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I may be of any further assistance. Best, Jason Faria, Director, Customer Service
