If you do not challenge charges on your credit card bill within 60 days, you usually lose the right to handle the matter through the credit card company. If time is dwindling, write (do not call) your credit card company and dispute the charge. If the items appear, you can always drop the claim. Read the back of your most recent card statement to learn your CC company's policy on disputed charges and the time periods to challenge.

Here is our bad deal for the month:
9 July, ordered a strap, 3 day ground.
15 July no strap, call, they said the distributor did not ship, it is on the way, should have by 20th.
1 Aug nothing!

I am not sweating it though, with AMERICAN EXPRESS you the consumer is always right, I call and they instantly remove any questionable charge, no letters, no more calls, instant credit to my card etc.
I have been AMEX since 1987, the annual fee is worth the "no hassle."
I have found Visa/MC is too big a hassle.

Thanks for the post, I was considering one of the PB hats. I'll skip it.

I enjoy reading Powerboat Magazine but their promotional department sucks. Last Novermber they ran a special on a calander if you renewed your subscription early. I ordered the calander for myself plus one for my son with a new subscription for him and a renewal for myself. After many calls and promises from Powerboat I finally received my calander in March 2002.

Excuses, excuses and excuses do not make a company worthy of respect.

For Power JOKE Mag. it sounds like "Par for the course"!
All arrogance and out of touch with their readers!
