It pays to do the Biz Rate survey!
No, I didn't win the $25 giveaway (yet, still waiting to hear), but the comments you post on the Biz Rate site actually do get read by the businesses, at least by Bobbi Brown. I recently ordered the Hydrating Eye Cream online to save gas and traffic time. I know, $40 - but it's a small price to pay to avoid my eyes swelling shut and to maintain my youthful (cough) appearance by going cheaper. I commented that I felt badly I just missed their free shipping promotion by a few days but liked the fact they included free samples you can choose...so the relatively low shipping compared to other merchants - $6 - was pretty well offset. Today I get an email from Bobbi Brown saying they read my Biz Rate comment and were going to credit my card the $6 shipping charge. Wow! Unexpected and thereby endearing themselves to me now and in the future. Now if I could just get $14 back for the pineapples. . .
