Yesterday I tried to order some cosmetics online. No problem with my profile pulling up, all correct information. When I tried to check out however, it asked for a 5-digit zip code. The zip code was correct, and after a couple of phone calls, I was told that their system did not read the 0 in the zip code (leaving out a good part of the country with a zip code starting with 0). Then I tried placing the order by phone, and my Bloomingdale's credit card was declined, much to my surprise as I had no balance. Turned out they reduced my credit limit because I hadn't used the card in a couple of years (mind you, I had just finished paying on a 0%/1 year purchase). What the credit limit was reduced to, nobody could tell me, though I know it was below $143, as that was the amount of the purchase. I am not sure my credit limit would allow me to buy a lollipop. They said I could use another credit card or requalify for theirs, not bloody likely! I cancelled my card and told them to go to hell. Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks are happy to take my money.3 Replies - Latest reply on 04/13/2011Add reply
BOCA RATON, FLORIDA -- This morning (Saturday, 7/31/10), my wife and I went to the Bloomingdale's in Boca Raton for their advertised, “One Day Home Sale.” We were told that one of the items we wanted (Wusthof Gourmet 14-pc block set closeout) was sold out at a Pre Sale prior to this One Day Home Sale. What? My wife and I traveled from Delray Beach to buy this item, only to find out that their one day home sale was false advertising.

We were going to purchase other items, but after this, walked out of the store absolutely disgusted with the way Bloomingdale's does business.
