Most Helpful Customer Reviews
While getting my textbook was FAST and EASY, I will say returning it was not. On the site it says under the FAQ that you can return your RENTED textbooks to any B&N store. You just have to check it in etc! So I went to the Harrisonburg, VA store near the JMU campus to return my 2 rentals. Upon arrival the associate at the register had no idea what I was talking about. He calls up an LOD (I assume that is what she was) to help. Upon arrival all she says (no hello how are you, what can I help you with) is WE DONT DO THAT. I explain to her that I ordered the books off the textbook website and that it stated I can return them back in store instead of going through all of the UPS mumbo jumbo. Also the store is right near campus so I figured it would be a quick stop and it would be taken care of. She kept saying we do not do that and that because the books were used I could not return them. I was NOT trying to RETURN them I was simply turning in the rented books before the date they were due back. She was extremely unpleasant and NOT customer service friendly at all. I will proceed to return my rented books through UPS with the shipping label as the other option. I will NEVER return to another Barnes and Noble store based on poor customer service and rude people. Either the FAQ needs to be updated stating that only SELECT stores (maybe? considering "you don't do it at all") will accept rental books for return. Or corporate needs to step up and make sure all staff in ALL locations is up to date on new policies and new concepts. With the Harrisonburg B&N being in a COLLEGE TOWN I would assume this policy would be in place to make student lives easier and more efficient when returning rented textbooks. I knew the books were USED because they were rented, so that should not have been an argument/there should not have been an issue in the first place. Due to awful and unpleasant customer service I will no longer use B&N textbook rentals or return to any of their stores.
