PALMYRA, NEW JERSEY -- Please do not order anything from the company called The Freedom Blanket. I happened upon this product and thought it was such a great idea so I got online and ordered two Freedom Blankets. I placed the order online on 5/8/07. The money was taken out of my account on 5/10/07. Since I had not recevied my orders after about two weeks, I started calling the company's 800 number and I emailed the company. Since mid-May, I have called and left numerous messages, I have sent several emails and I have even mailed a letter to the company. However, I have never gotten any response back from this company. To date, I have not received my order nor have I gotten my money back. I filed a complaint with the BBB two weeks ago and they are doing an investigation. I run my own business so I realize how things can go by the wayside, but this is ridiculous. Please do not order anything from this company and make sure to tell anyone you know how poorly this company handles its affairs.

The Freedom Blanket assured Christmas delivery for orders placed before December 16. I ordered two on December 9. On December 17, I received an email stating they were on the way. They never arrived.
The DHL tracking information never changed--it stated they would arrive by December 21, but it was never updated to show progress. On the 23rd I called DHL and found out the company had entered the shipping information but never sent the package.
I emailed and called the company and never got any response. Finally I spoke to an online customer service rep who told me they were overwhelmed by their holiday orders.
They should have called or emailed to let me know--instead, I kept hoping my gifts would arrive. The customer service girl just acted like it was no big deal: "your order is set to ship this week." I don't think so. Even after that chat, I have not received any kind of confirmation that my order has been canceled. The site is now offering free shipping for orders that are placed before Dec. 31--DON'T DO IT!
