Although I made a mistake with the time, it was because I received a text saying 3pm. I did not see the ET portion. This was my first class. Yes that is my mistake, however good customer service would have allowed a credit or reschedule. They were nice enough to just send a copy of the cancellation policy when they said too bad we won’t work with our customers.?Another site that a friend uses and recommends will take into account a honest mistake and allow a credit. So someone got $40 dollars for a class I did not attend, but will not get any further money. The other company will.
