Legal Question

Asked on: 3/08/13, 12:02 am

I need to know about Merchant dispute laws. I was in the process of buying a pair of prescription glasses for $500. I charged $300 to my debit card as credit and then realized that I had left my other card at home. The eyeglass place told me I could pay for the rest of it the next day and they wouldn't process/send out my order until I had paid in full. I went home and found out 2 things. 1) I didn't have as much money as I thought I did and I couldn't afford the rest of the glasses, and 2) a friend told me not to worry because I could get my glasses online for $50. So, I went back to the eyeglass place 2 days later (had to wait for the weekend to be over so they were open) and I told her that I would have to cancel the order because I couldn't pay the rest. She said that it wasn't their policy to give refunds on credit cards. I asked her if she had already sent the order in, and she said no, so I don't understand why I can't get the refund. She said she could put the money towards lenses or something, and I said no, I just want my money back. She said no again but she would talk to her manager about it and then they would call me back. I'm upset and worried I won't be able to get my money back. What can I legally do about it, if anything? They have given me nothing as far as a service or good, but they won't release my money. Help! :(
