Friend excitedly tells me about "Jos A. Bank 3 for 1 sale". How do you respond? - Page 3
For anyone who's trying to take advantage of the cheap shoe trees / hangars / whatever and paying with paypal: Check your receipt.
Paypal shows a charge almost double what the JAB checkout page showed. Apparently their payment system is of a similar quality to their suits.
I'm going to blame Paypal on this one.
Yep, that appears to be what happened with me as well, though I ordered a lot more than $30 worth of stuff.
I emailed JAB about the difference, but they haven't replied yet (I guess nobody handles customer service emails on the weekend). Paypal hasn't actually taken the money out of my account yet.
RE: The pay-pal issue, I spoke to their customer service after ordering some traveler shirts that I like, it seems pay-pal doesn't recognize their sales but when you are charged it actually does reflect the sale price, I verified this with my bank so its no big deal, according to them the problem is on the pay-pal side. As long as I get charged the right amount I am good now that I understand the problem.
My experience as well. I was charged the appropriate amount despite the erroneous PayPal notice.
My freshman year roommate thought JAB was the classiest place and it was a very high end store. He said he used to like to go inside and mess with the SA's pretending he was going to buy something, and just try on the "finest clothing" he had ever seen. He wasn't poor—he's a trust funder, but he has no class. The first time he told me about his adoration for JAB I asked if he was kidding, and assumed he was. He was not. He was very serious.
there was a guy that interviewed for my dept once....I was asked to sit in on the interview with my boss...the guys resume was so funny...bragged for 2 pages about his sales at JAB...claimed to be the best in the south...anyway, the interview was VERY awkward. He showed up in a black tux jacket with satin lapels and black trousers. He looked like he was on his way to prom. HE was quite portly and very sweaty....reminded me of interviewing a fat napoleon dynamite almost. he was so awkward in the chair.
