In March 2014, I ordered $8,748.81 worth of furniture and paid using Bitcoin. After 2 months of emails telling me my order would be shipped "soon", I received an email telling me they canceled my order because ALL of the items I ordered were out of stock and would not be restocked.
It took them over 2 MONTHS to figure out they were out of stock for all the items I ordered! According to the policies posted on their site, if I cancel the order, I would get a gift card instead of a refund. I did NOT cancel this order, tigedirect canceled this order! Therefore, I requested a refund of the exact amount I paid.
I sent 6 messages requesting a refund, NONE of them were ever answered! After several weeks, in June of 2014, I received, via email, "gift cards" totaling $7,321.42, NOT the $8,748.81 I paid!
It took them 3 months to get the "gift cards" to me and they were for $1,426.42 LESS than what I paid!!! Just to clarify, the price of Bitcoin was HIGHER in June than it was when the order was placed back in March, making what I paid in Bitcoin worth even more than the original $8,748.81 that I paid!
