Pat WeaverTrustpilot product review 1 star rating23 Nov 2020

It tells the story of the child going to a build a bear store and choosing a bear, stuffing it dressing it etc. All pretty pointless without the bear, so a complete waste of money. I even looked at buying the bear ready made, but the story then doesn't make sense. Not worth the money and an expensive mistake.

Constant calls about delivery

Constant calls about delivery. The people on the phone actually have no control over when an item gets sent out so it was just constantly false information. I actually didn’t need the item after it arrived late, but I couldn’t stand speaking to them on the phone again to go over the refund process which they probably would have not allowed as it was personalised. Really bad experience

  • In the Book Team 30 Jul 2021

    Thank you for your review.

    We have looked into your order details and can see that the operators tried to assist as best as they could under the circumstances.

    Your order was placed late on the 14th meaning that officially this would go into production on Thursday the 15th and was therefore quoted delivery between the 16th and 20th which does include production time as well as delivery due to the bespoke nature of this product. You then requested to have this delivered by the 16th giving us a day to process the order when we usually allow between 1-2 working days for production so when you upgraded the order it did cause some confusion but despite the inconvenience caused, we tried our very best to process the order as quickly as possible which was then delivered on the Saturday which is not a guaranteed day for delivery.

    With that in mind and the time frame in which we were given (less than a day to process the personalised gift) your order was processed and despatched with delivery being one day later than expected, we are so pleased to hear that after every effort made, you have received a really bad experience.

    We can confirm that a refund has been processed a gesture for the difference paid for your delivery.

    Kindest regards
    In the Book.

Ordered and paid for a book for my…

Ordered and paid for a book for my mother, promised delivery was july 16-21. Today is the 26th and your website has no info on my order, nothing, and obviously no delivery. Yet, my bank account clearly shows a $99.98 payment to inthebook on july 7, 2021. Update: Inthebook contacted me the next morning, updated me on the shipping and my mother’s book arrived the next day. She’s 84 and it’s been awhile since I’ve seen her tears of joy. All’s well that ends well. Thank you, and I’ve updated my review to reflect 5 stars.

  • In the Book Team 28 Jul 2021

    Thank you for your review.

    We can see that you have contacted our customer service team who have provided your tracking information and a screenshot of your expected delivery which is now showing as delivered as of July 27, 2021 at 11:26 am.

    The website does provide your order information when you enter your email address and full zip code, if that is unsuccessful we do provide our contact information within your email confirmation.

    Due to the delay in delivery we have requested a refund for your delivery cost and hope that this will go towards an apology. If you need any further assistance, please email us at [email protected]

    Kind regards
    In the Book.
