LOL I remember when my boys were a lot younger spending hours, literally hours, making a Chocolate Hedgehog birthday cake, complete with chocolate button spines, hundreds of them and smartie eyes and nose,  ready for one of their birthday parties. I made a good job of it, if I do say so myself, but no one wanted a piece of it,.

WHy….because none of the kids wanted it to be cut.  Quite unusual reaction fro 7 7 8 year olds but they all refused to let the hedgehog be cut up, as it was too nice to eat.

...@!*&! network reset.  Halfway though the post and *wham* lost everything I wrote again.

This is getting really old.

Complaint #2.

More PC Weidness.

Last month when my Annual PC membership was to expire, I noticed on my account page that the end date had changed to 11/10/13.  For the last several weeks still received the PC newsletter, still seeing PC prices, still had access to the Members Only forum so “OK” I thought, it must have auto renewed as I do have my card on file.

Now this Friday, I receive an email from Daz that my membership is set to expire at the end of this month. When I went to my account page there was no PC status, and the only newsletter I am subscribed to is the regular store one. 

Looked through the order history and nothing about a PC renewal.

Went to my bank’s site and sure enough there as no transaction to Daz for 69$ in November.

So I click on renewal link and the price I see is 99$, not 69$ even though I am still “supposedly” a PC member and have my card on file with Daz.

Now in the past I had to pay the full amount to renew once because I let it lapse beyond the “30 day grace period” but the extra 30$ was basically returned in Voucher credit so it wasn’t that big of a burn.  However, with the site software change in May, vouchers went the way of the carrier pigeon and I guess so does that extra 30$. Not an easy thing to deal with when on a tight budget.  Posted about this in the Renewal Thread over on the members Only forum.

(I wish I had a DNI link to my system, would really help to minimise all the typos)

Lots of people got that email though they didn’t need to renew - and you are still listed as a member in your profile. If you do need to renew manually you need to pay the full price and then ask for a refund on the extra $30 - there is a thread by Britney Creek on renewals in Members Only.

...interesting that on my account page there is nothing listed though.  Right now 99$ is a bit more than I can handle (which is what I thought the “30 day grace period” was supposed to cover) as it is the end of the current pay period.  My internet service bill is also due this week as well as normal weekly expenses (transit tickets, food etc, which are already budgeted for) which is why the extra 30$ (basically the cost of my weekly transit tickets) is difficult to handle even though it will be refunded (which most likely will not happen until after the end of the week considering the time it takes to process the CS ticket and have the funds transferred back to my bank).  the normal 69$ renewal fee would still make it a stretch, albeit, a more manageable one.

Again, had I not seen the revised membership expiration date of 11/10/13 on my account page along with continued service (which included receiving PC newsletters, as well as receiving a balance level alert the day afterwards from my bank) I would not have been lulled into thinking that it auto-renewed.

Can’t they return the 30 buck difference as Store Credit?

My phone was giving me problems.  Today it was giving me troubles which was the last straw, so I reset it to factory setting and now just setting it back up.

...I was told they can however, still can;t justify shelling out the full 99$ up front before payday on Friday due to “normal life” budget obligations.

Hopefully I will get some clarification on the phrasing in the Expiration email where it says “end of the month”, as to whether it means the end of December and that I can still get the renewal price (with refund) after this coming Tuesday (which is technically the final day of the renewal “grace period”).

Seems I was a victim of both one of those Magento errors when it inadvertently posted the new expiration date a month ago and coincidence with the balance level warning from my bank the next day.. 

At the same time we were also gearing up for our annual inventory audit at my day job (while I was still recovering form a nasty virus) so those kind of demanded a bit more immediate attention than monitoring ongoing account matters with Daz.

i see.
BTW, if you rearrange the letters in Magento. you get Magneto - the name of one of the most evil Marvel Comics villains ever.
Coincidence?
