Netflix delivers up and beyond expectations

Over the weekend when I opened my mailbox I found a plastic bag with part of a Netflix envelope and no DVD. A note from the Postmaster read ” We sincerely regret damage to your mail during handling by the Post Service. We hope this incident did not inconvenience you. We realize that your mail is important to you and you have every right to expect it to be delivered in good condition. We are constantly striving to improve our processing methods in order that even a rare occurrence may be eliminated. Please accept our apologies.”

I decided to access the Netflix website to have a new movie delivered, but did not find a way to report a problem specifically about damaged packages. The Netflix website has a call monitoring tool that tells customers the current hold time for a representative to answer a call. In my case, it was 3 minutes. When I called Netflix I was on hold less than 3 minutes when my call was answered. I explained my dilemma to the customer service representative and I asked if I could get the next movie in my queue sent out rather than the original movie that was sent. I’m currently on a plan that only allows one DVD to be rented at a time. To my surprise, the customer service representative said, “I would be glad to send you both.”

Talk about getting a little something extra. Not only was my call answered in less the time specified, but I was sent two DVDs: the original and the next one in my queue despite being on a plan that allows one rental at a time.

Netflix did a great job by empowering their employee to go up and beyond my expectations and all this because the post office mishandled the package. The entire customer experience was pure excellence!
