Last week I received a call from Macys credit card services. The message light was lit on the answering machine but no message. I called the number back from caller id and when I heard someone answer Macys, I realized I forgot to pay $25.00. I called the 800 number and spoke to Kevin in India. He insisted that I give him my bank info so that a payment could be posted that day. I told him I would send it via online banking, but he couldn’t guarantee the late fee would be waived.
The whole transaction took over 15min. because of the language difference and his constant script reading. I then received 3 other calls that day and when I advised them that a payment had been given, I was advised it was pending. What did they want me to do. All this for $25.00 and I have never been late with a payment since 2004.
As soon as the remaining balance is paid, I’m closing the account. The coupons aren’t worth it. I should have just paid through online banking and taken my chanes on getting the late fee removed. Now when I call I contact the store and ask for a call center in the US!!
