I started using Banfield in 2007, signing up for one of their Wellness Plans when it was $16.95 per month. After being advised it would be better to upgrade the plan for some dental work needed in 2009, I was assured I could cancel at any time to take advantage of the upgraded plan savings. I did not, until 2011 when the cost increased to $32 per month (not to mention the hundreds of dollars I would spend each visit - where is the savings??).
Therefore, I made the decision to cancel in April. That has turned into a NIGHTMARE with my husband and I getting harassing letters and telephone calls to our home - including today (Saturday) ALTHOUGH I AM AN ATTORNEY (and am mindful everyone thinks we are rich but assure everyone I am NOT) AND ADVISED THEM IN WIRTING MANY TIMES TO CORRESPOND WITH ME TO MY OFFICE IN WRITING!! They are VULTURES when it comes to the monthly wellness plan fee. I have even received a personal letter authored by three of the vets there – including Dr. Koffeen I believe someone else has complained about.
WAY TO CORPORATE and not at all customer oriented. If they had just responded that they understand economic times are tough, appreciate my business all these years, and hope I would think of them for my pet needs in the future, I might have considered continuing to use them when times got better. Spoke to a friend who advises she spends about Â½ what I spend at Banfield once the montly fees are added it for her vet. SUCH A RIP OFF! STAY AWAY!!!
