Madge,

How long does it usaully take for Feedback @RCI.com to answer an e-mail? I sent them an e-mail on 1/7/05 and haven't received a response. Also, I'm waiting for a refund that I was told a check was cut on 12/31/04. I haven't received the check either. How long does it take to receive my refund?

I emailed a couple of days ago (maybe three or four). Got an email back stating that the response might be delayed because of high volumes. Got a question regarding my message yesterday morning and a prompt resolution to the issue yesterday afternoon.

Perhaps a reminder is in order.

I agree with Sheila. I e-mailed last week and got the same auto response about increased traffic. I have to say that within 24 hours, my accoount had been modified correctly. I still haven't gotten an e-mail back confirming the change, but that really isn't necessary. They made the modification I requested and that is all that is needed. Of course it was an easy change and probably didn't need any research. I suggest that you send a follow-up e-mail.

Sheila and Patty,

I sent another e-mail on Jan. 22nd--still no answer. It's almost getting humerous, but they still have my money! I'm glad I'm not holding my breath waiting for my refund check that was supposedly cut on Dec. 31st.

Joe-

Be sure when you send your e-mail that you put the word TUG in the subject line. Something like "Tugger needs help". Madge has suggested that we do htat.

JoeWilly,

For a while earlier this month, the turnaround time for e-mails was several days; however, the Communications Team worked hard to get response times back to 48 hours. If you re-sent your message on the 22nd, you should have gotten a response. Please let me know if you do not.

As Sheila suggested, it is helpful to enter TUG in the subject line. We try to watch for those messages.

Lin,

Your credit card company can take up to 30 days to issue a refund processed by RCI. Clearly 4 months indicates a problem. Please send an e-mail to feedback@rci.com, entering TUG in the subject line, so that the Communications Team can check on this for you.

Madge,

I have communicated with feedback@rci.com. I was very impressed with their quickness and their ability to seemingly solve the problem. I had been told 4 times during 4 months via phone calls that my account had been credited. However, not true. I was owed 3 different credits. Two showed up immediately (well, within 2 days). The 3rd I am still waiting months for. The last correspondence was on January 7. RCI does agree that I have the money coming, so I am just waiting. I will wait until it's been a month and then communicate again. I called my credit card company. They do credits immediately, which shows from the two previous credits that did show up right away. Perhaps some day this will all be resolved. Thanks for your help and suggestions.

Thanks Madge

I re-sent an e-mail again with TUG in the subject line on Jan. 22nd and I still haven't received a response and still no refund check. Actually, I paid by credit card, so shouldn't I be receiving a credit back on my credit card account?

Hi Madge,

I've been unsatisfied by the responses I've gotten from feedback@rci.com. As an example, last week I sent an email with TUG in the subject line asking for refunds. The response I got told me how to recover my username and password. I then emailed back asking them to reread the original message and respond appropriately. There was no response to my second email.

I have received my refunds after serveral phone calls, but I just thought you needed to know that feedback@rci.com isn't always very helpful about resolving problems.

Happy trails,

Hi Madge.

I just wanted to mention that I have communcated several times with them in Dec/Jan & have put "TUG" in the subject line as recommended. Both times I received a satisifactory response within 48 hours addressing all my concerns.

Maybe I am just an exception, but I was quite impressed & pleased.

Peter.

jimbiggs,

We changed to a new e-mail management system at the beginning of the year, and I know that our staff is learning how to navigate the new system. However, they have a pretty good handle on it now. You should be receiving an immediate bounce-back acknowledgement, and then a more personalized response within a day or two.

If you haven't received a response by e-mail yet, please call and ask to speak to someone on the Service Resolution Team.
