Costco Online Uk - Costco UK removes bad Review on Blue Whale Spas
Its quite bad when a company like Costco removes a bad review so other customers will have to go through the same horrible experience.
Offering a refund seems does not make up for the lost time and mental anguish selling poor quality, cheap stuff on line.
When a verified customer leaves a review why remove it, maybe they write there own good reviews too it just leaves it open to interpretation.
Why do verified reviews if you dont intend to let your customers give you their feed back?
Expected a more from Costco then to hide perfectly legitimate testimonials.
Come on Costco do the right thing and show your customers the truth. Put the reviews good or bad, stop manipulating
Costco uses Bazaarvoice to verify there reviews and this brings them into question as well.
