Really not Happy with Armitron right now.

Saw that Armitron Ocean plastic watch here, and thought it looked fun. Cute summer watch I went to order it especially with the mother's day discount. Imagine my surprise this morning when I found my order was declared fraudulent and cancelled. When I called them I was told that Paypal cancelled it. I called PayPal not only didn't they cancel it they sent me their pre authorization.

I don't know what I'm more mad about, that they canceled my order for NO reason, that they lied about why, or that they really think I'd commit felony fraud for a $90 plastic watch. I'd never bought an Armitron before, But if this is how they do business I won't be buying one again.

That is awful.

I just talked to Armitron again. They accused Paypal again, despite having the Paypal authorization in front of them. At least when I pay a guy in Ukraine for a watch, I get a WATCH back. This is absurd. I've never seen a company refuse to let me buy something before.

I've never heard anything bad about Armitron up until this.

There might be more to the story-I'd call again . Is your PP linked to a credit card? All they gave you was a "Pre-authorization"

Seems like a bad business model.

That was pretty much my opinion.

I was going to just give up. But my partner wants me to have it. She thinks it would look good on me so she鈥檚 going to try and order it this evening and we鈥檒l see what happens. I guess I know I won鈥檛 try ordering anything from them again.

Try another payment option?

Try another payment option?

I have a 20-year-old PayPal account. There鈥檚 no reason it should鈥檔t have taken it. When we get home, my sweetie is going to take a crack at it.

So did it work?

I just decided the heck with it. I have so many automatics why fork out nearly 100 bucks for a plastic quartz? I tried reaching out to them on Facebook and their website as well and nothing. They can keep it. 馃槧
