Update from LensCrafters...the Liars!
I received a response from the BBB and Lenscrafters is stating that I did not request any enhancements when originally quoted...BULL, I stated exactly what I wanted and it was understood...the employee is just trying to cover her butt! That's why the employee had to call her lab to verify my request...DUH!!!!
I've been passing this information to employees of AT&T so they will know what to expect from this company. My advise, shop anywhere else but Lenscrafters...from what I have seen thus far, the online prices are much better for the same products. Even using insurance, you actually get a better buy not using the insurance except to send in the receipts for reimbursement. These big chain Eyecare companies that accept insurance are really a ripoff anyway. When these stores have any kind of special, you can't use the insurance anyway!

I received calls from both the store manager and a regional manager basically stating that they want to offer me a 10% discount. From what I was shown on their computer, my insurance company would pay them around $600 for their part. So, the price I was originally quoted for my glasses was $277.00, the new amount that was quoted was around $500.00, so I would get a $50.00 discount, give or take a few dollars????? That still isn't no where close to the amount quoted. That was an insult. I'm still not satisfied. It is a shame that I have to go through this with you. My portion should really be free for all the trouble this has caused and you still would be paid through the insurance company. They also wanted me to choose something cheaper. (Like now I would really purchase ANYTHING from them. The bottom line was the fact that they were not going to eat the difference in what was quoted to me and to actual cost. But....now get this....they really want to work with me and really appreciate the fact that we have EyeMed and that AT&T employees now have EyeMed and they would LOVE to have all of our business. I think I will also post this on the Union site so other employees will know what kind of "customer service" they can expect from them.

Lenscrafters/Luxottica Does Not Honor Price Quoted
After having a bad experience at Eyemasters in the same mall your store is in, I went to Lenscrafters to find new glasses. The person that helped me that day was Peggy. She seemed very knowledgeable and friendly and willing to help me. I told her what I was looking for, the price I had paid without my insurance at Eyemasters ($279.99) for designer Armani frames and Essilor lens with progressives and transitions, uv, scratch resistance-everything! I have Eyemed insurance. She called your lab to see
if you have the verilux physio 360 lens and she said that they did. She put it my insurance info in the computer, she put in a generic frame with a cost of $200.00 and supposedly everything I wanted including scotch guard. She gave me a total of $277.00 for everything. She even showed that to me on the computer. I advised her that I had to get my refund back from Eyemasters (since they did not line to bi-focal properly the glasses were a mess). I kept in touch with her over the next few days to let her know how that process was going. When I got my refund back, I called her and advised that I would like to come in and pick out a frame and purchase the glasses. I double checked again to make sure the price was as quoted as I had done every time I spoke with her. She stated each time that it was. I told her I could come in on Friday (July 10) She stated that she was off that day and that I could speak with her co-worker Sandy that day. My sister and I went up there Friday and I chose a pair of frames that were
$220.00 D & G dd5028 in bronze. I wasn't sure about the color on the temples so I was advised to drive to the Cedar Hill store or the Southlake store to view them in another color or see other frames available. I then drove all the way to Cedar Hill. I live in Mansfield, so this was not close to my home. I arrived at the Cedar Hill location and they were very busy so I had to wait quite a while. They were out of that frame and had ordered a pair in black for another person but it was already sealed and
ready to be shipped to another customer. I then left, but was advised that I could go to the North Park Mall location in Dallas to see them and other glasses. That was much, much farther to drive and I didn't go. I went back to the Parks Mall location in Arlington on Monday. Sandy was there since Peggy was off work that day too. I decided I would go ahead and get the bronze ones. She looked in the computer for my information, typed in my RX and proceeded to fill my order, did measurements, etc. When she was done, the price was almost $500! I didn't understand why. I explained that this was not what was quoted to me. She had the manager Charles to look at the order and he advised that I wait until Peggy comes back to work on Tuesday and let her do the order since she would know what she had done. I waited to receive a call on Tuesday, but instead I had to call her. They were busy in the store she stated, and she would call me back in about 30 minutes. 2.5 hours later, she called me. She stated she was still working on it and would call me back. She did call me back and said she realized that she had forgotten to add something to the order and that's why there is a big difference int he price. So, I have wasted almost a week with this! I've wasted time and money driving here and there for her to have misquoted me on the price! Shouldn't the price be honored since your employee quoted it to me directly and showed that price on your computers!!! I was assured when I spoke with your employees that you were much better than Eyemasters and that you stand behind your products and customer service is your main objective. I'm not seeing it. Sounds too much like a bait and switch to me. I will be posting this letter and my experience with your company around the Internet.
I would like for them to honor the price they quoted me for what I requested. Or, they can do it for a even more discounted price or free since this has been such a big inconvenience. I've found numerous complaints all over the Internet regarding Lenscrafters/Luxottica business practices and how customers are being treated.
Update: July 23 2009
Here is a letter of response to Lenscrafters:
I received a call from Charles, your Manager of the Arlington Texas store this morning. I was still asleep when he called. He offered me a 10% discount for appeasement. From what I was shown on your computer, my insurance company would pay you around $600 for their part. So, the price I was originally quoted for my glasses was $277.00, the new amount that was quoted was around $500.00, so I would get a $50.00 discount, give or take a few dollars????? That still isn't no where close to the amount quoted. That was an insult. I'm still not satisfied. It is a shame that I have to go through this with you. My portion should really be free for all the trouble this has caused and you still would be paid through the insurance company. Also, why hasn't someone from your corporate office called me?
