Ahahaha. What a relief it is to see the word Revoked stamped next to their name. This company has not been making good on rebates. I reported them to the BBB. They later told me that they fixed the problem and resumed contact with the rebate handling company (Status-Now. I called Status-Now who confirmed that ZZF did not resume contact with them and they have been having problems with them for a long time.

So, if you buy something with a rebate from ZipZoomfly, you will not get it. (Their shipping also takes forever)

Proof I'm not the only one.

This is a big day for me personally. This is a step in the right direction.

While what you experienced is the story, and I empathize with those people who have issues with zipzoomfly. The revocation of a BBB endorsement is about as hollow as the empty promises zipzoomfly made.

I can almost bet that the BBB extorts a pay for play fee from them and their rating is restored soon. Don't think it happens?

See for yourself.

The Better Business Bureau, one of the country's best known consumer watchdog groups, is being accused by business owners of running a "pay for play" scheme in which A plus ratings are awarded to those who pay membership fees, and F ratings used to punish those who don't.

I was afraid of that. I thought I remembered reading that all you have to do to get an A+ rating is to pay a small fee. Well either way, the company still needs to pay to get their grade changed and thats bad news for them. In the meantime, they will continue to be embarrassed by their poor grade.
