This past week I purchased a Designer men's watch at the lowest possible price on the net. Upon receiving it (very short delivery time) I was amazed at the professional packaging. Unfortunately the watch was not running. I contacted Ashford customer service via phone and did not have to go thru a phone-tree (press 1, press 2, etc...) I was immediately greeted by a friendly, personal, well spoken, easily and simply understood voice. An immediate apology and suggested that it was the battery. She suggested I try a new battery and Ashford would credit my charge for up to $10.00 with a copy of the receipt. If it wasn't the battery I could send it back for a FULL credit.
Yesterday I took it to a jewelry store where they replaced the battery. I emailed a copy of the receipt and within the hour I received a confirmation email that my $10.00 credit was issued.
Ashford's customer service should be the model for ALL customer service departments!
Thank you Ashford, you've made me a loyal customer.
