Ikea - Taking Advantage of Children
Customer Service - Complaint
CANTON, MICHIGAN -- My son went shopping with his grand parents and took his savings of $20. He purchased a 1.99+ tax item with his $20. The clerk informed him he/she did not have change other than coins would have to wait for change. He/She basically took advantage of his young elementary age to give him a gift card which he has no way of getting to the store to use on his own. Now he has a $17+ credit on a plastic card he will most likely loose and thus Ikea will pocket his money.
First solution was to credit a credit card of mine and I would refund the cash to my son. It was a workable solution.
Second solution was to have me drive to the store 30+miles each way to get the $17+ back in cash for the gift card.
