About Create & Innovate
Create & Innovate otherwise known as createninnovate or createninnovate.com is currently the rave of the internet because of its coupon code ‘SPRING15’ which allows customers to have a 15% discount on all items.
Sounds incredible right? Sadly, the store has some loopholes.
People who shopped from createninnovate were displeased when their order arrived. Instead of realistic teddy dog, they got a dumb toy. Instead of hand held circular saw for $56 they got tiny disk blades. Below is what a customer has to say –
I had placed an order for a stroller for 350$ On December 4th 2021 as I was going to give birth in January of 2022. We are February 4th 2022 and still haven’t received my order. Kept sending them emails and never got an answer back just their automated message. I am very mad as I spent 350$ on this scam. Do not recommend and I don’t know where I can file à complaint for my money back.Lena
Delayed Shipping & Delivery
createninnovate.com creates the impression that it is located in United States whereas in reality the store is based in Hongkong China. As a result of its location, shipping and delivery takes weeks or in most cases months.
Fake Return Policy
The store’s return and refund policy is a sham. Customers who are unsatisfied with the received purchase are unable to request for a refund. Mails sent to [email protected] are ignored. It seems the company is trying to stall time so that people won’t be able to request a refund after 30 days from the date of delivery.
No Social Media Presence
There are no social media icons on createninnovate.com. Even when we checked on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter we couldn’t find its official social media page.
createninnovate.com isn’t risk-free, it isn’t secured with McAfee or Norton. The website is vulnerable to hackers who can tamper with customer’s personal and financial data. As a result of this, your credit card isn’t safe on the website.
From all indications, createninnovate.com is not an authentic online store. It has a poor trust score, and as such not recommended by us.
Have you been scammed?- Do This
Shopping from this store exposes customers to the risk of hacked credit card and overcharged fees. Also, customers would either receive an inferior item, a different cheaper item, or nothing at all.
Therefore, it is advised to file complaints to your bank and request for a new credit (debit) card. On the other hand, if you used Paypal as a method of payment, you should document (screenshot) the transactions for future purposes.
Yes, it is true that online shopping has made life easier, however when ordering things online check out the following-
How old is the website? Does it provide return address? Are there customer reviews online? Do the social media icons work?
