Laurie's Lagniappe Giveaway - CLOSED!





UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! Congratulations to degood for winning! Also, we'd like to extend our sympathy to Photoquest, for NEVER having experienced Lagniappe! We hope you do soon!



Laurie's Lagniappe (pronounced LAN-yap) - colourful, creative, distinctive designs for everyday! LL has you covered with a whole host of fun designs on everything from toothbrush holders, to t-shirts, magnets, paper, you name it!

Add some colour to your day with one of their unique patterns: polka dots, zebra stripes, cupcakes...almost 500 patterns in total over their entire range. Something for everyone, making perfect gifts for the person who is hard to buy for.

Established in 2003, LL incorporates that southern philosophy of 'Lagniappe' which means "a little something extra" according to their website. Meaning: their goal is to please the customer as much as they can! Lagniappe, indeed.



Laurie's Lagniappe are giving away a $30 gift certificate!



Just leave a comment telling us your best experience with customer service - when was the last time you TRULY experienced Lagniappe? The last time a store/business went over and above and beyond and further than the call of duty? Made you feel special? made you feel like you were more than just a wallet/purse walking in?

We'll randomly draw a winner for this one!

Here's the fine print:
  • Open to US residents only

I do not recall that ever happening anytime in my life. I guess when I win the lottery it'll happen for sure.

Great giveaway! I know this might sound strange, but I just got back from a friends bachelorette cruise and the customer service on the ship was outstanding. I also loved being pampered and being able to just enjoy myself!

Everytime I order something from a Etsy seller, I feel that way! They always take such pride in their work and love to make something special just for you!

Laurie always makes a product that is uniquely yours! She can accommodate any request and truly runs her business well with extra Southern charm!
On another note, I just had my CVS pharmacy call me and ask if I would like to refill my prescriptions that would be finishing at the end of this week - great way to be ahead of the game! I was very surprised! asroussel@gmail.com

cdziuba@aol.com Wow, I was treated rudely by an employee at an electical store where I went to buy lighting fixtures for our new kitchen, and when I went home, I called the manager. He comped me $250 worth of credit.

The hotel where my son's wedding reception was held went over and above on their customer service, not only during the reception, but before AND after!

When I was buying maternity clothes last fall/winter, there was an AMAZING saleswoman at Motherhood Maternity who found so much great stuff for me in my size while I was in the dressing room. I had no idea what to expect with maternity clothes, and she was so helpful and not pushy at all. She even found some clothing for me that was on clearance!

I recently ordered some farm shaped crayons from an etsy seller and one arrived broken out of 12. I emailed her and let her know that it was broken and she mailed out an entire set via priority mail the very next day with a note apologizing for the broken one. It was very nice of her and I will definitely order from her again.

I have been having some issues with some Signing Time DVDs, which my daughter adores, skipping and stopping. I wrote the company and they have a great policy that states that if anything ever goes wrong with one of their dvds, they will replace it for free within 30 days and for $5 no matter how old it is! They have been very accommodating and I just love their products so much! I also had great service from Quinny, the manufacturer of our Buzz stroller. It was not folding easily or breaking correctly and I called to inquire about the problems. They shipped a replacement stroller to me the next day!! Same with Medela, whose pump I used while nursing our daughter. The motor on the version I bought seemed to wear out quickly and whenever I called, they had a new one at my door by the next morning! It must seem that I create bad luck with things I buy, but I promise that all my complaints are legitimate! These companies all deserve applause!

Unfortunately, I can't remember the last time I received halfway-decent customer service, much less anything above and beyond.

I experienced good customer service all around at Wal-Mart yesterday. I had to return an item and the customer service worker was polite, fast and friendly. Afterwards, the bakery worker was super friendly and gave a cookie to my little boy. Finally, the cashier was very friendly & fast also. I enjoyed my Wal-Mart experience yesterday:)

My husband bought my wedding ring set in Mississippi 5.5 years ago, and we've moved several duty stations since then, but the lady we got it from still calls once a year to remind us to get it cleaned. She's great :)

I bought a pair of sandals at the Kenneth Cole store and a strap broke within a week. Kenneth Cole wouldn't take them back or even exchange them because they had been worn. Duh.

After my bad experience at KC, I met my husband in Nordstrom and I was complaining to him about it - the Nordstrom saleman overheard me, asked me for the Kenneth Cole sandals and took them into the back room...he brought me out a brand new pair of the same shoes. I protested "But I didn't even buy these here!" and he said, "That's ok. We're Nordstrom. We have the best customer service out there. Tell your friends!"

SO IMPRESSIVE!!!!

Tia said...

I don't think this has ever really happened for me. Good customer service, hmmmm.....

It happens so rarely, that when it does, I am amazed. We had a blender/food processor that we purchased delivered broken and Sears was quick to replace it. It was a breeze, and experiencing Lagniappe...a breath of fresh air.

Definitely at my wonderful opthalmologist's office. Everyone is so loving and kind, and takes as much time as you need to explain etc.

I ordered a pair of shoes from Kuuru in the wrong size. I returned them for the correct size along with money for postage. They sent my money back to me with a note saying "it was our pleasure to serve you". Cool, huh!! :)

I bought my daughter an Elmo toy at Sesame Place, and it was lost on the way home. It wasn't available anywhere else. I emailed customer service, asking how I could buy one, and they mailed me a new one at no charge.

Last week was my daughter's pizza night at school, so we bought 2 pizzas from the place we were supposed to. They messed up both our pizzas. I just took them back and asked them to fix them. I wasn't rude or anything so I was suprised when he gave me 4 different coupons for free large pizzas!
Thanks for the contest!!

Several months ago, I ordered some prints from a Etsy shop called Winsome Works. She included some extra prints in my order. She was pleasant, her work is lovely. Her prices are reasonable. I definitely will buy from her again

A while ago I went into Taco Bell for lunch and was all ready to pay with my credit card... only to find out that they didn't take credit cards. I was pretty bummed but it was my fault for not having any cash. The guy behind the counter immediately put my order in anyway and told me to just come back another time and I was beyond amazed!

The last time we experienced great customer service is when we went to Auto Zone to exchange a part that didn't fit. The employee there went beyond his duties (help in replacing the part) and made sure that we left his store satisfied!

Just last night we had dinner at longhorn steak house and where we were seated was very noisy. We asked to be moved and they IMMEDIATELY moved us and they told us to just move and they moved all the items from the table. Then they checked back to make sure we were happy. Very good customer service. Thanks so much! pamelashockley(AT)netscape(DOT)net

The best experience with customer service I ever had was when I went to a restaurant for my birthday and was treated like royalty.

Last year I was in Nebraska visiting my mom and dad. Everyone was so polite and treated customers with respect where ever we went.

My favorite grocery store.. they just make me feel welcome and are always willing to help out.

The last good customer service I had was at AT & T which is rare.

photoquest said...

I cannot re call a good customer service i've experienced so far except if i've sent food back because it wasn't cooked right and then they act like it's a big inconveniece while you are the one having to wait AGAIN.
