Zappos was featured on ABC’s Nightline last night. A ten minute segment about the Zappos culture of customer service. Its well worth watching.
I received a phone call this morning from someone with the "Office of the President" (De La Vega…not Bush). He offered me a $100 credit towards the $400 I’m about to lose…I said that wasn’t good enough and after a friendly chat he promised to see what he could do and get back with me later today.
While we were talking I mentioned I hadn’t received the rebate from my BlackBerry purchase in May…and he said he’d take care of that for me…and now a few hours later I get this text message from AT&T:
Your rebate has been mailed to you. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery. Thank you.
So I’ve got $50 bucks headed my way from the purchase of my BlackBerry…I’ll be fascinated to see if AT&T takes advantage of this opportunity to provide excellent customer service or if they stick with the approach that got them into the Customer Service Hall of Shame.
