Horrible ongoing experience with meta customer service

Honored Guest

I made the horrible mistake of preordering the Quest 3 from Meta store directly instead of bestbuy and paying the price for it. Meta messed up the order (confirmed by UPS) and it could not be shipped to Canada in time. I then received an email that delivery failed and an rma was issued. I went and bought another unit from bestbuy.

Weeks later, UPS delivered to my home in Canada, dont know why.

Since then I have been trying to return the device to Meta to get my money back. So much time spent on this with over 20 contacts to Meta support. USELESS support, cant even issue a return shipping label and its been over a month. I cant generate a return label online since its giving me an error.


Pre Ordered Quest 3 - Sept 27
Processed Oct 9
Scheduled Delivery Oct 12
Q3 never arrived. UPS status remained on label created.
Meta customer support was useless.
UPS eventually advised Meta had failed to submit documents to export to Canada.
Oct 20 - Email for Meta that order was not delivered successfully and that a refund would be issued once UPS delivers product back to their warehouse. RMA 1048275002969751.
I went and bought another one from BestBuy expecting a refund.
For some reason UPS delivered to my home on Milton, Ontario on Oct 24 instead of sending it back to Meta. The box remains unopened and I have been trying to return it. I no longer need it and my credit card has a charge.
I cannot start a return on your system as it is giving me error.
This has been a horrible experience and I dont know what to do.
Who can I complain to, to escalate this and get my refund in full.
So many emails and messages sent to Meta, all I have been told is to wait and its been over a month now without resolution.
