Beware M&S Nametape Service!

I've just ordered school name tapes via the mobile texting service on M&S website. I was texted back saying the order hadn't gone through. I tried another order and the same thing happened so thought I'd forget it and go elsewhere for the name tags.

Turns out, despite me getting the texts saying the orders didn't go through, that the money's been debited from my phone account - twice!

Just spent the afternoon on the phone to M&S, T-mobile and the small company who supply the nametapes. All of them are saying they cannot issue a refund because it's the other companies' responsibility.

I am hacked off.

I would advise MNers to steer clear of this service.

I have used it twice and it was fine.

I think I'll steer clear

If your money has been taken maybe you will get the tapes.

Hi again

I spoke to them and said I wanted to cancel as have ordered tags from somewhere else. Still can't anyone to refund me angry

Lady from M&S regional office says she knows a lady who may be able to help.

I'm sure the service is OK for some people but it's caused me such a palava,I wanted to pass on the warning.

Maybe try My Nametags? order nametapes online in the morning and get it next day. Don't think they do text orders, though.
