Poor customer service. High rate. Untrustworthy. Do not help consumers.

Poor customer service

Christmas, an exciting time for children as well as adults. Small window to order online for quick sell out items. Not once, three times fraud prevention flags purchase! I go to reorder after answering all the questions. My orders are canceled, lost the merchandise and now my limit is gone! 5000.00 limit, made three payments of 4500.00 in Dec I am obviously using this card for large Christmas purchases. I am so angry, I think it's time for the shredder

Amazing Customer Service

There are so many credit cards out there that sometimes we forget the main reason for having a card is to safely make purchases either in person or online. When you have a problem, the true value of the card is what you need to look at.My father-in-law has dementia. He also is very computer illiterate. He purchased a Microsoft Surface (tablet) as his computer. It didn't take long before he started getting pop ups telling him he had a virus to click on a banner and call the number to have it fixed. I do believe that these scammer companies (Geeks, A&M Tech and others) sell their sucker list to each other because within a 2 week period there were almost $2000 worth of charges on his LL Bean card to these scam companies who all said they would fix his computer.The customer service staff at LL Bean has been working with us to get these charges refunded. There have been quite a few calls between them at Barkley Bank (The bank that services the card) and us. Everyone we have spoken to there has been extremely nice, they have all supported us so well and have been able to get all of the charges reversed.I am going to now open a new LL Bean credit card for me because I know that in a pinch they have my back. My wife and I are extremely grateful for their support and efforts.

Not Recommened

I've been a LLBean visa card holder for 6 years. I do not recommend to apply for this card for two reasons. 1) There's no satisfaction guarantee. There's no way for you to dispute online, and get a refund instantly, like what other credit card companies offer. I had to dispute a $80+ charge on my account, had to put it in writing, wait to receive a response in writing, if the merchant decline to refund, LLBean visa will not give you back a penny. 2) Frustrating dealing with Customer Service. I have no delinquency in my entire credit history, the credit bureau confirmed it. I have a credit score of 810+ and decent annual salary. They denied my request of credit line increase, reason of denial is "delinquency too recent". I spent overall 2+ hours on the phone with them. They got confirmation from the credit report company too that I do not have delinquency. It's obvious a mistake on their end, they did not admit it, did not apologize, and could not review and reconsider their decision. I applied for a Visa Card from another company after I got disappointed with LLBean Visa, the first card that I received from another company offered me a higher limit than what LLBean Visa gave me. I've stopped using the card, hopefully will never need to deal with them again.
