Hollister Complaint - Hollister Gift Card Scam=ripped Off By Overpriced Clothing Company!!
111 WOODFIELD MALL, #G, SCHAUMBURG , ILLINOIS -- I shopped at HOLLISTER over Xmas 2009 for my sons they "liked" the overpriced clothing for some reason! I guess because its popular and kids nowadays don't realize they are being ripped off by big Companies like Abercrombie & Fitch! Personally I think Old Navy, American Eagle, JC PENNEY and Express have better clothing and better discounts but that's what they wanted so I went shopping at Hollister, I was told they had a promotion going on if you spent 75.00 and over you would receive a free gift card worth 25.00 dollars on it so I spent over 150.00 to receive two gift cards with each having 25.00 on it!
Honestly it was SO loud in there I could barely hear what anyone was saying that and the Store reminds me of a cave as its soooo dark you can barely see what you are looking at...to me the whole shopping experience was annoying as all get out!! Plus I kept looking at the prices on the clothing and they are waaaay over priced for what you get!!! The cashiers behind the counter are not that friendly I believe they probably don't get paid enough while the company is raking in all our hard earned bucks and laughing all the way to the bank sitting in there Mansions laughing about how rich they are becoming off of there high priced clothing by our teenagers they are ripping us ALL off as well as the kids who work at the store because they are not getting paid enough!!! Anyway I gave my sons the gift cards along with the clothing for Xmas, well low and behold when my one son went to use the gift card the other day he was told it had a ZERO balance and that the gift card expired Jan 31, 2010! SAY WHAT??!!!
My son called me and I started to steam, why would it be expired when it doesn't say it anywhere on the receipt, gift card or any sign in the store and plus not one of the cashiers or workers told me DONT FORGET your gift cards expire end of Jan so make sure you use them!!!!! HELLO what a big SCAM HOLLISTER has going on!!!!! Unbelievable this company needs to zero out everyone's gift card with the scam they expired end of Jan without even letting the consumer know!!! Well so any money they saved doing this actually cost them more then they know as I won't EVER shop there again nor will my sons and any future grand kids they might have etc etc!!!
And I'm sure by reading the other comments that a lot of people are P OED about this scam Hollister pulled off all in the name of keeping there 25.00!!! WAKE UP YOU SCAM ARTISTs "HOLLISTER" BIG RIP OFF, OVER PRICED COMPANY!! You lost a lot of customers over your deceptive practices!!! Besides who wants a T-Shirt with a big red 7 on it or some hoodie that has BOLD letters with the Lame HOLLISTER name on it anyway haha!! Sounds like another Class Action Lawsuit in the making!
