...   FWIW, I have won CC disputes based on timing.
I showed my printouts of the order, that told me it would arrive in 1 week to the CC company and said I no longer wanted the item, because it didn't arrive in the correct timeframe and would be refusing the package.  The company said "but we sent it".
I won, I refused the pacage and got my $ back

I have a question.  How did you show the CC company your printout of the order.  Did you have to take it somewhere?  Mail it? Or is there a way to do that by computer?

P.S.  Good for you for standing your ground and getting your money back!

Print it to a pdf (I know my home and work computers both have free ones on there, that include a sticker on everything that is printed that says it is a free program - so not good for some things, but good for something like this), and then you can email that document to the company.  I do this all the time when I have to send in medical documentation for our flexible spending account.

I use PrimoPDF (also free) - in either program, you print as you normally would, and choose that program as your printer for the job. Easy-peasy!

If the document is opened in Google Chrome, it has a built in pdf creator.

fast forward eleven years, she is getting a pelvic exam for her 4th child and the doctor who she just met suddenly says. "Oh, I delivered your baby!"

She looks down confused and he continues. "You must have had a baby in [first birth state] because i sewed up this tear."

Turns out he WAS the OB who delivered her daughter. She just didn't recognize him and he didn't recognize her until just then,
Hah!  I always suspected that they were doing embroidery down there, it took so long to sew up the episiotomy. :D  (And when it's done with no anesthetic, it HURTS, a lot worse than the actual birth!)

No anesthetic?! That should be illegal.

And it wasn't an epi tear, it was just a natural one she got. Apparently it was somewhat distinctive.

Mine wasn't in the US, but in Italy.  You know those phrasebooks that they make for tourists, with sections like "In the Restaurant" or "At the Open Market?"  There is no handy-dandy section of the phrasebook for "In the Delivery Room", so I didn't know how to yell "HEY!! Wait until the novacaine works!"

I actually faxed it in, because I had easier access to a fax machine than anything else (and this was a few years ago--nowadays I'd find my order confirmation email and screenshot it :)

I always found it weird that my japanese phrasebook had "Help! my kids have been kidnaped!" but it's true, you never know when you're going to need it... :)

We used to have a priest at our church who had spent time in Japan. Whire he was at our parish, he was once called in to interpet when a Japanese woman was giving birth. He joked about not knowing the word for epidural. He also said he called his mom afterwards and told her "thank you."

Not from a particular business (well, actually, from a particular Ebay seller), but we'll never buy anything on Ebay from Hawaii. It costs too much to send stuff back there!

I did a search on 'beachbody' (www.beachbody.com) but the search function is broken. I wanted to see if this company had already been reported. At the bottom of my bag of shakeology was a metal thing, like a pin sort of. It was good size. I had already consumed the bag. I contacted their customer relations, all I got was a canned response. A week later no communication from them, nor from my 'coach' who I specifically asked her to call me and she later admitted she chose not to call me. I told a friend of mine; she said "this is how recalls start."  It had not occurred to me that there may be other bags with metal parts in them. So I gave beachbody another 2 days to get in touch with me. Now it is well over  a week, no contact from beachbody nor my 'coach'. I then opened a complaint against them with the FTC so if they decided to look into it further they could. About 4-5 days later I then sent an email to my 'coach' and asked if she got my request for her to call me; she said yes & she opted not to although in my e-mail I told her I told I had  a serious concern. When she admitted this info, I then sent her an explanation as to what happened with the metal thing and a few other concerns. I was also double-billed for my shakeology; they sent me 2 bags instead of 1 for just 1 month. I didn't request 2 bags. They never sent my 'free' t-shirt although I filled out the 4 page document with pictures et al. In my next bag of shakeology, there were 2 scoops. Neither scoop was the recommended 35g. The 2nd scoop was found at the end of the bag (again) so basically I had overconsumed the entire bag of  shakeology. There are other issues too... but the main one is their lack of concern that a metal part was in their shakeology. There are people who would sue a company for that type of negligence.  Once my coach found out about the problems she contacted someone high up and my phone began to ring off the hook. It was 1 day short of 2 weeks since I reported the metal thing in my bag of shakeology.

They did finally send my 'free' t-shirt but of course it was.... the wrong size.

And they did refund me 1 bag of shakeology....not the shipping of course just the product.

I do enjoy my workout video and will continue to do it but no longer will I be giving beachbody.com any business. I highly suggest you be very careful about sharing your credit card info with them. And have very  low expectations of your coach. My coach has > 200 people under her and is not managing her coaching duties very well.
