Discover Credit Card Dispute Customer Service Review:
One thing I love about the digital age and online banking is that if you have an issue, a lot of times it can be resolved online without having to wait on hold on the phone for ages. I found this to be true with a recent issue I encountered regarding a charge on my Discover Card.
Birkenstocks have been popular among travelers for quite some time, but the classic style was not appealing to me. In recent years, however, Birkenstock has branched out into a number of great looking styles. I decided to try the Gizeh model for my first pair. Yes, I said first pair. As in I can totally see myself getting more Birks in the future..
I've been meaning to write this review for such a long time. I have had a Gaiam "Yoga Ball" Chair for probably 5 years now. The idea is that this chair helps to improve back and core strength because you have to be more focused on your body positioning to stay balanced on it. Except, you kind of don't...
Customer Service Series Explanation:
The market for almost any product today is very competitive and to me customer service is what really stands out and makes me want to be a loyal customer of any given brand, service, or company that fits my current needs and budget. That being said, periodically when I reach out to companies, I would like to share my experience with their customer service in case it helps protect you from a bad situation or gives you confidence to make a necessary purchase knowing the company really backs their product or service.

Dollar Shave Club Customer Service:
I recently signed up for Dollar Shave Club (*love*) and I recently had a question about my account, something I wanted to have adjusted. The chat agent was really friendly and eager to help. She let me know it would be no problem and the IT people would have to handle it, but that she would send me an email when it was completed.
Later that afternoon she sent me an email apologizing that IT was no longer able to make the adjustment I had requested. (Bummer) Because of the inconvenience she added a $5 credit to my account so I could add something to my order before my next box ships and get $5 off. (Surprise!)
I think this is great customer service. The initial interaction was great and efficient. The agent didn’t ignore me after the chat ended. She promptly kept me informed about the situation and when her hands were tied to deliver, she gave me a credit. As a customer, it made me feel valued. As a company it is smart because when I add a product whether it costs $5 or more, if I love it... I will keep buying it. So the credit is a good investment in their part ;) Either I will spend more money with them or, even if I don’t, I feel more loyal after the interaction.
Thanks, Dollar Shave Club! I look forward to receiving many more of your blades in the mail. :)

Can I just say I love this little cart? Ikea sells the Raskog cart in their kitchen islands and carts section and it currently comes in beige, black, and red/brown. I swear it used to come in a gorgeous mint/blue shade at one point.
Anyways, I have it in black and it is awesome! Yes, you can use it as a kitchen cart. You can also use it as a bedside stand (Think PJS on a shelf, books on a shelf, and charging tech on another shelf, as just one example.) You can use it as a movable art cart. Keep all your supplies in one place and pull it to wherever you want to work that day whether the kitchen table, sofa, outside, wherever! Use it as a little TV table/end table if you don't have one. Cart cleaning supplies around on it. Display books, CDS, etc at a garage sale. There are endless options.
The Raskog cart costs $24.99 on the Ikea website plus shipping if you don't live close by to pick it up. Shipping varies.
You can also order it on Amazon with Prime shipping. The cost goes up to $50, but you will get it delivered to your door step in 2 days and have the awesome Amazon customer service behind you. It's big price difference, but for some people it may make sense.
Do you have any other creative ideas for using these carts?
I recently did a post about Wool Dryer Balls. You probably knew about them already. BUT did you know about SOAP NUTS?!
GreenBlender is a smoothie subscription that ships farm fresh ingredients weekly (or less often at your request) right to your door to make super-for-you smoothies.
I was given a coupon code for a free box from a friend and I was eager to try it because I love smoothies.
Green Blender Plan Options:
You have probably heard of Dollar Shave Club already, but if you haven't... It's a razor subscription service that starts as low as $1/month (+$2 shipping and handling) for a 5 stainless steel twin blade cartridges. Awesome deal.

If you're really serious about shaving you may like the Executive. You'll get 4 stainless steel 6-blade cartridges every month.
