Default BGS adds 2 days to service level because of...

So I submitted 15 baseball cards for the 20 day service back on Nov 10th.

I just got a call from BGS saying that they are adding 2 business days to submissions due to the holidays and volume??????????

I understand that the 20 day service I paid for does not include holidays and weekends so I asked them why are they calling to tell me this. The rep was stumped.

The only understanding that was met upon hanging up was that the 20 day service has just became a 22 day service.

Has this ever happened to you guys and should I complain?

***Ultimately as long as I get them before XMas I'm fine, just curious if this is common place?***

Thanks in advance guys.

If they truly added to 2 businessday, making it 22 business days, you absolutely should complain. But if they simply screwed up there system and forgot to account for the holidays and are changing the due dates to correct them, then you have no complaint.

But at least the BGS clock seems to start when they get the cards. PSA will hold them for a week, then the clock will start when they finally get around to entering your order. Seems an easy way for them to manipulate the turnaround deadlines.

When you get the cards back, do a chargeback and call them up and tell them you're sorry for charging the money you promised them back but you received some unexpected holiday bills.

I think that they are NOT just giving their employees Christmas Day off. It will be a long weekend for them, so everything will get pushed back by 2 days or so.

haha...good one.

I do appreciate the fact that they called me but nonetheless they shouldn't say 20 day if it's not 20 days. Oh well.

Hopefully submitters in the future will read this post and know that this is a possibility.

You bargained for a 20-day service... and I am assuming you paid for such. I would simply ask that they reimburse you (or give you BGS credit toward a future submission) based on the per diem cost of 2 days.

Bad experience with BGS - never doing it again - sh!tty service and arbitrary "grades" = total BS.

I agree.

I've done several personal submissions and several group submissions and lately have found myself scratching my head on results.

In this submission I cracked some 9's so am interested to see what they grade them at now.

The system is imperfect. In the future I will not be grading much.
