The Saga of JD Hawkeye Tree Cutting concludes: When a refund's not a refund

This post wraps up the issues raised in JD Hawkeye Tree Cutting punished by province, customer complaints and A deal is a deal? Dealfind for JD Hawkeye Tree Cutting goes bad.

Well, I got a refund of sorts.

No, Dealfind Halifax did not give me my money back.

Here's what Dealfind said after learning the details of my case (emphasis mine):

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. This is not the standard we accept from companies that we run deals with. We do go through great lengths to ensure that our vendors are reputable and provide our customers with excellent service. You can continue to rely on us to find you great deals.

Dealfind proudly offers a full refund for unused vouchers within the period outlined in our refund policy (http://www.dealfind.com/refund-policy.php). We generally do not offer refunds after this period, with the exception of a business closure, in which case we provide Dealfind Dollars for the price paid for the voucher.

While your voucher has exceeded the refund period, we understand that you have not been able to redeem your voucher. As a result, we have gone ahead and applied the Dealfind Dollars for the price you paid to the Dealfind account you used to make the purchase. These are available for use immediately and can be used towards any of our great deals as there is no expiry date!
The Dealfind policy says I'm entitled to a cash refund "up to 30 days from the first day your voucher is valid."

Given that I couldn't even get Daniel from JD Hawkeye to come out to do the job until THIS YEAR, that's offensive to me.

So, after a complaint about my difficult experience with DealFind, DealFind says I'm welcome to spend my money with DealFind instead of using it to pay someone else to do the job I originally spent the money on. In other words, I spend $99 to get my tree trimmed. DealFind is keeping that money for now, and I have to find someone else to trim my tree.

As for Daniel at JD Hawkeye -- he's still out there spamming Kijiji with ads now featuring two phone numbers: 902-981-5651 and 902-219-7938. He's now operating as "SUNRISE TILL SUNSET" Tree Cutting and "DUST TILL DAWN"

Gordon turns four and has questions

Gordon wanted to know where mommy went.

Not what happened to her body, but where SHE went.

We celebrated his fourth birthday this weekend with three gatherings. One at our house with his little friends. One at nana and grampa's house. One in Stratford with the Simpson clan.


The big party for the kids was a success. I'd never planned such an event. Thank goodness for the Internet, where I found a Martha Stewart article that laid out the basics. And thank goodness for Party City, which had a ton of Transformers party stuff ready to buy. I wasn't feeling well, but managed to pull it off. Thanks to sister Shannon and SIL Amy for being the Designated Adults who helped in wrangling and last-minute logistics. G thought the whole event was kind of loud, but he really enjoyed it. And I feel like a winner for making it happen -- some of the other parents even chimed in that they now know what goes into a kid's party, since they were as clueless as me! Great!

Great time at nana&#…

Hard to believe it's been a year - but it has

One year ago today, we lost Amanda.

Time plays tricks on all of us. We can think "that was so long ago" at the same time as "it feels like yesterday." I run into this all the time with Amanda's death.

Yes, it feels like just yesterday, or last night, or later today, that Amanda collapsed in the kitchen and died after that long, brutal battle with ovarian cancer. But every day has ticked by at a pace like any other, and it's been a whole year of those days, with incremental and sometimes revolutionary change.

As I move about our home, it's hard to fathom that she's been gone a whole year.

Many of the decorative items she carefully arranged throughout the house are in the exact same place as the last time she touched them. She had the vision, not me, so I've been reluctant to disturb her decisions on what looks good and works.

In other places, I'm reminded that it's been at least a year since something's been in place. Like the fully-s…

Chugging along through a slump

Gosh, I haven't posted since before Christmas.

I got through Christmas. I put on a good Christmas for Gordon. Maybe a great Christmas. But I also got a nasty cold and came out of the holidays in a funk.

As you've seen here on the blog, I was full of HEY, LIFE! and WOW, OPPORTUNITY! and BLANK CANVAS! sentiments for months. But then I just fell flat and seemed to lose interest in everything. Social life, self-care, home improvement, good food, personal finance, hobbies. It just all went plop and I didn't really dig doing anything any more. Thank goodness for friends and family asking me to come out and do stuff.

Now, I'm not one to shirk responsibilities when others depend on me, so I'm lucky that others depend on me. Business has been picking up at work, so that's good. And Gordon is my inspiration to keep things interesting.

We got out and about to some fun stuff, including an overnight road trip to Hamilton to see Paw Patrol Live.
