How Do I Get Dyson to Fix Their Mistake and Make My Wife Happy?

Dyson made a mistake and sent me the wrong product. I did what Dyson asked me to do so they could correct that mistake, but I’m still waiting for a response. Below is an email I sent Dyson on December 24th, but I have heard nothing back yet. 


Good Evening, 


It is unfortunate that you are just sending this response to me, and it does not reflect the fact that I have already returned the incorrect equipment and you received it on December 8, 2023, 13 days after the product was shipped. I attached the shipping notice that you sent me. What is even more unfortunate is that I ordered this product on November 12 hoping to get it by Christmas for my wife. I received and discovered that the wrong product was sent to me on November 26th, and I immediately submitted a return request. On December 6th, after not hearing anything from you, even via email, I called to find out the status. After being on hold for an hour-and-a-half, I was told that your factory put the wrong serial number on a Refurbished Dyson Air hair curler and that is why I received that product instead of the refurbished Dyson Corrale hair straightener. In addition, you didn't have a replacement in Prussian Blue, so I was told I had to take the pink version. I told the customer service rep that since you made the mistake, and it is on you to resolve it, that you should send me a new Prussian Blue Corrale (because I know you have new ones in stock), instead of sending the refurbished pink one. The customer service rep asked his manager and then I was told that Dyson wouldn't do that. At my job, if I make a mistake that harms a customer, I and everyone at my company do what is needed to make things right, even if it costs a little more. I can only guess that Dyson's products are in such demand that you don't need to make those concessions.  


Anyway, I was then told that I needed to ship the incorrect product back to Dyson first, and once you received it, processed it, and got around to shipping the new product back to me, I could expect to receive the correct version 4 weeks later. When I asked for you to send me the correct version, now, so I could receive it by Christmas for my wife, Dyson said no. When I asked to make sure that once the warehouse received the wrong product Dyson would you put a rush on the processing, I was told by the customer associate that he had no way to contact the factory (Based on this email I just received below, my shipment wasn't even tracked before someone, or some AI program, sent me this email). Finally, not satisfied with any of those responses I asked to speak with the customer service reps manager. He said I could do that, but it would be another 45 minutes. Had I not been at work and already spent 1 hour and 45 minutes on the phone by that point in the conversation, I would have waited, but I didn't have the time. 


Now you send me this email, which says that I should receive the correct device 10-14 days after you receive my product. Well that was almost two weeks ago, and I haven’t heard anything.

I hope you have better luck than I have. I have been going back and forth via phone and email for 4 months and I keep being told I will receive a text and instructions to ship but nothing has been resolved. I just sent another email but truthfully I have lost all hope. They used to have really great support, I do not know what happened but you can see just by the sheer number of posts online it had turned into a disaster.
