Netflix Says They’re Sorry

Some nice observations about service recovery:

Customers were routinely far more impressed with a well-handled mistake (which they actively noticed) than with trouble-free service (which they took for granted).

In this case, it wouldn’t have been enough for Netflix simply to apologize. Because this was an outcome-based error (delayed shipment), they correctly tacked on a discount.
