    For the 1640 at least, there is another review that's been posted. Oddly, not mine.

    Did you ask them again about the restocking fee?

    Aside from the enclosed letter and two emails to the CS rep? No.

    Still no sign of my reviews on BJ's site. Go figure.

    So, I avoided them recently when purchasing a hand full of rechargeable 18650s... Spent almost $80 with someone else thanks to this thread.

    I'm looking for a new place to buy 123 primaries from since I always bought from BJ. I will change who I buy from since this thread.

    They don't appear to be impartial so will dump negative stuff or stuff they don't want to hear.

    Suck it up, move on ;)

    Nope. I'm not good at many things, but I can hold a grudge with the best of them.

    I don't think a weekly bump will blacken my soul, Hal.

    If the things you participated in while visiting Tijuana didn't blacken your soul, nothing will!!

    Besides the bump it gets noticed by other members as well as anyone who is directed here while searching out info.

    I don't think so either.

    Frankly this is the 21st century and if you are going to give mediocre service some of us may want to spend our money elsewhere. I've used Battery Junction without problems in the past but also don't mind going elsewhere.

    Some shops are going to get petty over a couple bucks and risk losing hundreds if not thousands due to a couple marks on their reputation. That's a stupid business decision but it's a free country I guess...

    Like you, I had a really bad experience on my last purchase from them.
    I made a good amount purchase on Black Friday because of the good prices of the available items.

    I waited them to ship the items ... after 3 days (not even Cyber Monday I could get more) they sent an email that the items would be delayed, plus two days later, THEY CANCEL IT, saying they were unavailable ... but When I bought everything, It was accused that all were IN STOCK.

    After a long time of fighting, comings and goings, several emails one of the items ended up having to be CHANGED (against my will) and two CANCELED.
    No apologies and not even one compensation. On the contrary, the item that had to be replaced was neither close to what I wanted and it was offered on Black Friday.
    In the end I had to buy the items I wanted for a VERY HIGHER price at another store, missing out the Black Friday offerings that I could have taken advantage.

    It was the fourth AND LAST purchase made in this company. I do not recommend.
