Don't Buy from Peanut Gallery Gifts!!!

Not resolved

On August 20, 2008 I thought I purchased a new backpack and lunchbag for my daughter.After I hadn't received the shipment I tried to call the company.

The answerning machine said they weren't there and to call back later! You couldn't even leave a message! I also e-mailed three separate times with no response. Then I called the other two numbers on their site, I left a message on one and the other one was disonnected!

I should have known something was up when the tracking e-mail they sent me went right back to my order confirmation page. I've never had this happen before, but now my credit card company is investigating. Save yourself the hassle and don't even think about buying from Peanut Gallery Gifts!

I also changed my credit card number so they dont' try to use it fraudulently.

Peanut Gallery Gifts Stole My Money

Toms River, New Jersey 9 comments

Peanut Gallery Gifts, a teensy weensy internet site that happens to sell the exact piggy bank my five-year-old daughter broke and needs replaced, has decided to completely take me for a ride.I placed the order online, was immediately charged, and that was it - I never heard from them again.

Got a confirmation email that my order was received... then, nothing. After a month I tried contacting them via phone. Guess what?

No answer, no answering service. Tried emailing them, approximately 50 times so far, and no reponse. Guess my next step is to go to the fraud department of my bank. Anyway, heads up.

Do not buy anything from this store!!!

Please take time to note it is listed on their website, they are under new ownership, and should not be confused with the previous owners. The new company does not charge you for items until they have shipped! I had a GREAT experience, so don't be fooled by the comments which are pertaining to the previous owners.

Ordered a toddler backpack for a x-mas present on 12/8/09.Received a phone call on 12/22/09-3 days before x-mas!- that the backpack had been on back order this whole time.

Thanks for the notice. They would not overnight the backpack at their expense so I could have it in time for x-mas. Ofcourse I canceleed my order and told them I would never order from them again.

After reading all the other reviews I will be sure to monitor my bank account to make sure my money is refunded.Who is running this business?

I JUST PLACED AN ORDER WITH THIS WEBSITE 2 AND 1/2 WEEKS AGO AND GOT REALLY NERVOUS WHEN MY ITEMS DID NOT ARRIVE IN THE PROMISED 5 DAYS.SO I TRIED TO CONTACT THEM AND THEY E-MAILED ME BACK SAYING THAT MY ORDER WAS ABOUT TO ENTER INTO THE SHIPPING PHASE.

I WAS STEAMED AND TOLD THEM TO COMPLETELY CANCEL MY ORDER.

TODAY I RECEIVED AN E-MAIL SAYING I WAS CHARGED AND MY ITEMS WERE SHIPPED.WE'LL SEE, BUT I AM SCARED AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO PROCEED.

I also ordeed a backpack and lunchbox for my grandson for $40.97 and it has been a month since doing so. I have tried to contact Peanut Gallery Gifts 4 times and still have no information on my order or the order. Is there an agency we can report them to and shut them down?

They did the same thing to me too. charged me 4 days after my order, never shipped the item at all -- and this was for my daughter's first day of kindergarten -- her new lunch box.

Same thing just happened to me. I ordered a backpack for my daughter, and after reading these reviews, I have contacted my cc company. Soooooo mad.

Since your daughter broke your piggy bank you should break one of her favourite toys or her legs and lock her in her room tied to her bed for hours and starve her. Well maybe that is a little too much but I don't like it when children don't respect other people's property. I really think you should break one of her favourite toys and see how she likes it.

Do NOT buy anything from Peanut Gallery Gifts -- they are a total rip off!I purchased 4 back-to-school items for my children on Aug.

15/08 and received an email about the status of my order. Each day I checked to see when my order was processed and it never updated. I called and emailed with no response. The items were supposed to arrive last week and nothing.

My card was charged Aug.

16/08 and I'm now left dealing with my credit card company letting them know I got duped by a fraudulent company called "Peanut Gallery Gifts".DON"T BUY FROM THEM!
