Ordering vs Buying From A Store

After reading another blog about her problem of ordering something it reminded me of my order a few weeks back. I know many people like to order online and love to shop that way. I like to see and feel what I'm buying but recently I did order from a small jewelry catalog a do-dad to make my pins into a necklace so I also ordered a necklace with only a cat's whiskers, nose and mouth and on the back is printed Cat Lady. The necklace came in record time and the do-dad was on back order, they said but would be sent. Time elapsed and I received a note from the company saying because of lack of more information they were sending my check back for that item and it was enclosed. So I got my necklace and the do-dad for the same price or in other words the do-dad free. I'm thankful but confused. What information did they need for it and not the necklace?

Weird....but I never turn down 'freebies'.

No clue, I'd have to see the ad. It really doesn't make sense.
Did you get all your money back and you still have the necklace (minus do-dad) so the necklace was essentially free? Hmm ...

Strange, but good of them to send the check back if they could not for some reason fulfill the order.

How strange!

Very strange. We do a lot of online ordering here, it seems. But I have never ordered groceries online and wouldn't unless there were a really good reason or if it was very much cheaper. I can still remember the very first thing I ever ordered on eBay back around 2005 -- a book, of course! It was a favorite from my girlhood called A Hatbox for Mimi.

That is interesting indeed. But since you got a FREEBIE, enjoy and don't ask why?

I'm not sure what happened there, either. Suppose the mail order fairy smiled upon you.

No SJ I only got my money back on the do-dad and I did receive it later too.

It's been along time since I heard of a do-dad. Thanks for making me smile. I love a do-dad!
Just smile and be happy. I have been very satisfied with the stuff I have ordered, and I order a bunch.
Glad it all worked out, confusion ain't bad, if you don't lose because of it.
