D & D Innovations Reviews (56)
Review: Two college kids showed up selling magazines to help pay for a trip, I ordered 3 magazines: Readers Digest, Maxim, and Sparkle World. This company needs to be stopped if it is doing everyone this way and never be able to start a business of any kind again.
Review: I was approached by a young man selling magazine subscriptions. He was polite and gave me some spiel about a trip and money if he was the first to get a certain amount of points for selling subscriptions. Due to some of my own experiences I have a bit of a soft spot for people trying to turn their lives around, so against my better judgment I went ahead and purchased a subscription that was supposed to be mailed to Mission Children's Hospital.
Review: I submitted my refund request per the stated guidelines on the receipt provided by pushy salesmen. Have been unable to receive refund. No one answers phone, when they do they say they can't find my refund request, they originally said they received it back in July, but it takes three weeks for refund. I called back in three weeks and they said they would mail the refund. Now they say they will look for it, never call me back; and when I try calling back, the phone is busy.
Review: I ordered a magazine subscription in Jan 2013. It has now been almost 8 months, and I still haven't received a single issue.Desired Settlement: A refund of the $40 paid for a magazine that was never delivered.
Review: First and foremost I blame myself for falling for such a sketchy company, however, they got me with the Humpty Dumpty magazines for children in Shriner's hospital. The more I thought about it the less it made sense that the salesman was working for a big vacation trip by selling magazines in Walmart?? So I googled the company and immediately decided I had been scammed. I typed a letter and sent it off within the 3 business days as stated on the paperwork. Called (2) days later and was advised they received it and that it had been received in time for a refund. Now I call every week to check as to when it will be sent and every week it is a different story. All I want is my $40.00 back. Thank you!
Review: I ordered a magazine from two people that came to my door. I decided to cancel my order so I sent the form in on the same day. I haven't gotten my money back yet so I tried calling the company, but I keep getting the answering machine.
Review: I ordered a one year subscription of deer and deer hunting magazine and paid $40 but did not receive. I have spoke to David the owner and was told on three occasions he was going to refund me for the magazine subscription by mail and have been dealing with this for 3 months.Desired Settlement: I would just like to be refunded for the amount paid for the subscription or get my one year of magazines.
Review: I realized after writing my check that this was probably a scam and after checking out this company I am now sure of it. I would like my money refunded because I followed the directions on my receipt about getting a refund and have not received one.
Review: I signed up to receive magazines from two of their sales associates July 18, 2012 but realized I could get these magazines cheaper directly. I immediately sent a certified letter with both of my sales slips to D &D Innovations within the 3-day refund period and ask for my orders to be canceled and checks returned to me. I gave them a week from the date my letter was sent and haven’t heard/seen any response back. I gave them a little more time and decided to call around July 29, 2012 and spoke with someone who told me that they received my letter and that the refund will go out soon. It’s been another week and I still haven’t received anything. I called a second time on August 6th and was told that my refund will go out on Wednesday (August 8) and I should receive my money shortly after. I said okay, another week later, guess what? NO REFUND was issued. I called A-GAIN, for the 3rd time, around August 15; I asked what is taking so long?! Whoever answered the phone could not give me an answer, but said that her manager was cutting/writing the check now and it will go out today. Once again, I said okay. It is now August 20th and I have not received anything! I called today and was sent to voicemail. It has officially been a month and I have yet to receive my refund! I am pretty angry now. I am fed up with the temporary lies that they tell, when it comes to the status of your refund. This is not the way you handle business. I just want my money back!
Review: On June 18, 2012 a sales agent named xxxx xxxxx from D & D Innovations called at my home selling magazines. After listening to his speech, I purchased a magazine for Mission Hospital's Children's unit. Afterwards I did a bit of research online and discovered that this company was not reputable, that numerous complaints had been filed against it. Per the notice of cancellation on the receipt, I mailed a signed and dated copy of the cancellation notice on June 19, 2012, well within the three business days from the date of order. According to the notice of cancellation, I should have received a refund within 120 days, but it is well past the 120 days and I have neither received the refund nor heard anything from the company.
Review: Husband recently out of hospital and wanted to help two college girls selling magazines - for them to earn money. He purchased a magazine subscription (Taste of Home) $40 plus $10 handling fee. Information says we should receive delivery within 120 days. Agreement signed 1/31/13. It has been 5 months and we have not received magazine yet. I have called phone number on receipt numerous times. One time I got answering machine and left message. Next two times I called there was no answering machine - no one picked up.
Review: 1/14/13: called and spoke to Jessica. She told me the check would go out next week.
Review: I've been told about 4 different times the past month that my refund will be given back the "next week." It never came. Sometimes they won't answer my calls. I find it ridiculous I haven't received my money back considering I sent in my refund the day after the kid signed me up which was probably in September. The girls I've talked to that work the phones are nice, but they don't seem like they're in a hurry to get things done obviously, and it seems like I've been lied to each time I've called.
Review: I paid $50 cash for a subscription to Smithsonian Magazine from Drue Lewis who claimed to be a representative of D&D Innovations. Mr. Lewis stated it would be a couple of months for the order to be processed. The order was placed with Mr. Lewis on 04/28/2012. It is now 09/07/2012, and I have not received a single issue of the magazine.
Review: Mailed a signed and dated notice of cancellation on 12/17/12. In compliance with the terms and conditions. Have not received a refund to date. Have contacted the company at 828-684-9827 several times and always get voicemail, have left messages and no one has returned my calls.
