Love the store, so mad at the app

I hate that it won’t accept my card on the app but it will on the website. I have to force close the app all the time to login, it should just keep me logged in. I’d love to see a specific sales section or an “upcoming sales” like my target app. They need to add the capability to track your shipped orders. I see that it says “shipped” but where is the tracking number? Things i love: the scanner, wish list tab, rewards tab, and easy access to the rewards card.

Edit to response: Thanks for the recommendations. I double checked everything. It isn’t me 🙃 it is the app. Just like all the other negative reviews.

New App - New Problems

I never had issues with the previous app but was pushed to download the new app today.

Today I was trying to place an order for a gift, then one for myself.

Order 1 - send to new address
- added a new address in ship flow, errored out when saving the new address. Had to start checkout again, new address was there.
- paying with new card added as payment method. States CCV was wrong, tried again, then processed with same CCV
- states to link my membership card, entered number and it told me was already linked - still charged me the $6.99 for shipping

Order 2 - sent to me
- four new books were in my cart that I never put after my first order was placed
- when I go to checkout there is a random persons name, address, and card information
- when I try to change to my own shipping info, selecting one of the saved addresses, it tells me that the address is not valid. When I try to edit the address and save it tells me there are multiple issues, even when selecting the suggested address.

At this point I can’t place an order, and also was charged $6.99 over on my original order.

Please give us the old app back. What a mess 😞

I’ve always used the website to order books, I never ran into problems. I would place an order and get a confirmation email about 10 mins later, I used the app bc I thought it would be a lot easier. I ordered 2 books through the app and I haven’t gotten a confirmation email or message 2 days since I’ve placed my order I’m anxious that maybe my order didn’t go through bc it’s been showing preparing shipment for the past 2 days. I always get a confirmation email and an email telling me my package has been shipped, and I haven’t gotten that from using the app!!! Please tell me if I’m getting my package or I want my money back!!!

Developer Response ,

We apologize if you did not receive an order confirmation email. Please email with the details so we can check on the status of the order.
