I order our milk from Amazon. We solely drink 2 ingredient almond milk. And I do know it’s costly, nevertheless it makes a distinction in our well being and our choices for wholesome choices in our tiny city are very restricted. I’ve performed it this manner for a number of years now.
I get a case of 6 particular person pints (I believe that’s their dimension, about 1/2 a 1/2 gallon) or perhaps it’s a quart. I don’t know. Once I see we’re right down to the final two containers, I order extra. (I used to have a subscription that got here like clockwork, however we simply don’t use it like that anymore.)
Once I went to eat some cereal a number of weeks again, a model new field, I had discovered on sale. An actual deal with for me. I spit out the primary chew considering my milk had gone again. It was horrible. Come to seek out out that they had despatched us Cashew milk as a substitute of our regular Almond milk and I observed too late after the return date. (In my protection the containers look precisely the identical.)
2nd and third milk order
Quick ahead, I ordered a brand new case. And waited anxiously for it’s arrival. As a result of I wished to eat my cereal! Then I acquired discover, on the day it was to be delivered, that it was undeliverable. Ugh!
So I ordered one other case…third time must be the allure, proper?!?
It arrived. Packaged otherwise than another case I’d ever gotten. I opened it to seek out a minimum of one of many containers had busted. And never solely that, however they knew that and simply wrapped it in plastic and despatched it. It smelled so disgusting.
So I instantly get on Amazon, nicely in my return window, and it says this merchandise just isn’t obtainable for return. What!?!
The one me, would in all probability have sucked up the loss. And at this level stopped ordering almond milk from Amazon. However I’m broke and I don’t have something to lose. I acquired on the cellphone anticipating a combat to get my a reimbursement.
Nope, he returned my cash instantly. And stated that I didn’t must repackage the contents to return them. Thank god, as a result of it was gross.
However I acquired to considering, I want this milk. I nonetheless wished to eat my particular cereal (particular as a result of I’ve stopped shopping for cereal as a result of it’s not wholesome and it’s so costly.) I discovered this field on sale for $3. Which I do know remains to be excessive and nonetheless unhealthy, nevertheless it was a deal with.
I dug by means of the gross. Handled the bitter smells. Washed every of the 5 containers that had not busted. And rattling it, I’ve milk. I’m going to be cautious once I open them to make use of them, and ensure they haven’t soured per se. Does almond milk bitter? I imply, the busted one was so gross, however typically?
The ethical of the story is that typically you simply want to choose up the cellphone and name. Even when at first, they are saying this “merchandise just isn’t eligible for return.”
