    I checked my email this morning and found out that Costco had cancelled my computer order because they were unable to verify my shipping address. I called in and they were no help. It was cancelled because the shipping address was different from the billing address (I am staying at a temporary address for work). The dude on the phone's suggestion was that I order it again and then hurry up and call them so that they can contact that department and tell them not to cancel it.

    I wrote them an angry email asking them why they didn't attempt to call me and verify the address. I ask them to call me and explain.

    Should I expect some kind of discount or something for my trouble? The order was for almost $1,400.

    Same thing happened to me, the thing was on the UPS truck out for delivery when they alered the driver not to deliver it and bring it back to the depot because the billing address and delivery address were different.

    only difference was I cleared it up and didnt demand a discount or complain about on the internet like a little bitch

    Demanding something back from them and asking if I should expect something back is two entirely different things. I'm suspecting that you guys just want to break balls.

    I'll give Costco credit. They called me right back. They had no good answer other than that they don't call people to verify addresses. Fuckers have enough staff to call me right back but they don't have enough staff to call and verify and address. Fuck it, I'm going to look at other places to see if I can get as good a deal on it before I reorder.
