I submitted the request July 13th, and the support ticket was received.

If you submitted the refund request through their customer support system, odds are that they never received it. I think we were supposed to use that Google Forms thing they set up for us.

I hope they at least check the tickets before sending the refund. I put the wrong refund address into the google doc form (stupidly I put the address I paid to instead of paid from) and submitted a ticket with the correct address and relevant proof that I was who I said I was.

Seeing as how they didn't even touch my ticket, I would NOT assume that!

Do everything you can to contact them.

Anyone get a full refund yet?

Did your status on the store go to "refunded"?

Sorry... yes.
I should have been more clean. 
Was wondering if anyone in "Refund Processing" got a full refund and had it go to "Refunded" state.

Has anyone requested a refund and NOT had even the status change?

My ticket status hasn't changed.  Still showing 'Being Processed' since logging a ticket 25 days ago.

Oh wow...I could have sworn I read somewhere else that we were supposed to submit a ticket... they even offer "Refund" as a subject for the ticket!

What to do... what to do...

I will refund your order.... I mean I will re-buy it from you and pay for shipping to my place.

I've been out of the loop for a bit on bitcoin talk and Avalon over the last 3 or 4 months.  Why are people getting refunded on their batch 3's?  Is Avalon forcing them to take refunds, or are people looking for a refund on their own, and if so why?

Just check the current hash rate of the whole net you will get the answer.

There's a ton of companies that have scheduled to release a crapload of powerful miners in August/September/October. IF they succeed, batch 3 will never make ROI. If they fail, batch 3 will make profit. People who requested refund think those other companies will succeed, people who stuck around think they will fail. Time will tell.

I think we are all being too optimistic on the other companies. They are going to martinfail out on their deadlines, realistically.

 Really the reason I chose a refund for Batch 3 was not because of ROI, but because... let's be real, and over-clocked Avalon running fans 100% (4000 rpm) near where I sleep was just about as close to psychological torture as I think I've experienced yet. On one hand, you don't want to turn off the machine because you're losing money, but on the other hand, it's like sleeping next to a jet engine, waking up covered in sweat.

Mining is a professional business.

I must confess the fanless design of one of the competitors product was a factor in my refund as well.

+1. Also, risk of fire when not attended, constant power drain, constant babysitting in case of issues, power outages, etc... It's not something I wanted to deal with. Of course, I may be just saying all this to validate my decision, but these are all factors that I considered when asking for a refund.

Woops... I just realized that the 'refund' I thought I had received from Bitsyncom was actually an unrelated bitcoin transfer (from a different source).  No refund action yet from Bitsyncom --- though... ahh... still not worried.  I am sure they have bigger concerns with dealing with trade-ins, batch3 and chips.  I imagine we will see some traction after those are sorted.  Smiley

Lol, I've never slept so well in my life as when I had my avalon running in my bedroom. Now, I'm back to not sleeping a wink Sad

I'm really surprised I'm the only reported refund. I wonder what could be going on over there. Maybe I was one of the first ones they did.

Did your status on the store go to "refunded"?
I did. And yes.

Through IAFCU, or bitfloor directly?

Not sure what either of those entities have to do with an Avalon refund--wrong thread? I original paid bitcoin through Bitpay. However it seems Bitpay was not involved in issuing the refund, so we assume they're processing them manually.

Last time I checked my status was "refunded." I suppose I can check again...
