Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:28:00 PM): Do you remember how much you paid for it? Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:29:27 PM): I was able to locate the book. I need to know how much you paid for it so I can be bale to provide you more information. Me (3/8/2017, 3:36:25 PM): obviously too much, my classmates paid 6 for a used copy of it.

that's all we are going to use , just the book. All I want to know if by using the code do I get a digital copy of the book or not for the 217.95 that I paid. I should have to open the one time use code to find out if that's the case. Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:37:39 PM): I really do apologized for this inconvenience that you have experience D.

Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:38:36 PM): It wold have been much easier if we have the access code so we can checl if that would really include a digital copy of the book or not. Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:42:16 PM): If you have paid that much for this code I believe this already then includes a digital copy of the book. Me (3/8/2017, 3:44:39 PM): really? Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:48:40 PM): So that you can be able to get though the right information I would refer you to your school bookstore so that they can provide you information if the code you bought is indeed with a digital copy or not.

Me (3/8/2017, 3:48:46 PM): that was for all 3 things and all you can estimate is that because of the price you "believe" it should. With the isbn number yoou should be able to know everything it has as an customer service employee. Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:50:42 PM): Upon checking the ISBN that you have provided which was 978-0-321-91225-1 it did show only in here print. Me (3/8/2017, 3:50:56 PM): You work for the publisher, I shouldn't need to to go anywhere else for that information.

Me (3/8/2017, 3:52:02 PM): because you asked me for the book isbn, not the card isbn. You should be able to see related materials tothe book isbn. Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:52:51 PM): You bought the book at the school bookstore and that is the reason why they can be able to provide you more information about it and that is why it is best to contact them. Me (3/8/2017, 3:52:53 PM): the first isbn i gave you was off of the card Me (3/8/2017, 3:54:01 PM): So you cant give me information about your product?

Me (3/8/2017, 3:57:24 PM): Your company has the worst customer service that I've ever had. Takes all sorts of steps just to get to be able to cintact anyone and get nowhere. I'll be returning the book to the store and bringing up this issue to the Dean and campus President. Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:57:34 PM): We really need to know the exact access code, D for us to be able to inform you if the code you have includes a digital copy or not.

Mary Ann T (3/8/2017, 3:59:19 PM): You can always get a refund for the code if that is not the code you needed. Me (3/8/2017, 4:00:03 PM): One time use only, once it's opened it can't be returned; if it doesn't have the digital copy it's useless to me, but I'd be stuck with it. Maybe that's what your company wants, but not today.

Me (3/8/2017, 4:02:24 PM): IT'S A PACKAGE PURCHASE, ALL 3 ITEMS PHYSICALLY WRAPPED IN PLASTIC TOGETHER!!!!You have no clue of what any of your products are, try visiting your own website.

I didn't like: Poor support, Phone service.
