(eTextBook) B&N is a bad company with poor practices.
So I got this eTextBook for class, but the professor wouldn't allow laptops in class. So, I deleted the book and tried to process the refund online. I was under the impression that I had...then B&N charged me for the book. I assumed that it was an error, so I called them.
They told me that the book was still available to me outside of class so they did not see what my problem was and acted like I was trying to steal money or something. After discussing this issue with them and being put on hold a few times they still refused to give me a refund.
This company does bad business, is a bad business, and they deserve to fail. Their practices are disgusting.
I will NEVER buy anything from this company EVER AGAIN!
