purchase and customer service

so I made a recent purchase on alienware aurora r7 for about $2,000 but I mistaken the credit card policy and my purchases was on hold so I contact the customer support and I was ask to contact the card company for authorization and I done so. when I called back to the customer service, I asked if I could split the amount, the agent said it fine, and as she process I receive message on my phone that the purchased was been made but in the end she told me that my purchase was still on hold. from there on I had to call the card company and dell back and forward and can't get my problem fix. And later when they have tried to process my purchase 5 times as it keep on declining, I found out that I was charge twice on my card. Not only that, the purchase is still on hold. when I try to reach the customer support what they do is transfer me around through different department and keep on asking me to call the card company,which I have done several times, the worst part is the agent ultimate hang up on me when I'm not done with my sentence! I always heard dell have great customer service, but too late i realized it is myth. can anyone tell a way to get my money back?

Re: purchase and customer service

I think you will have to call Dell on the phone to get this resolved. In your case, you might also have to contact your credit-card company.

But I agree, when you login to check the order status ... there needs to be extra "verify-able steps" added. That way, as customers, we can simply login to Dell website and see what is going on. If there is a problem, we have some idea of which department to contact. Something like this would be better.

- Order Received
- Payment Approved (Credit Card charge, Dell Financing, etc.)
- Computer being kitted and/or assembled
- Computer built and ready for shipment
- Computer Billed for and Shipped (Tracking Number is ...)
- Computer Received / Transaction Complete
