Sears - You might be better buying from a car boot or street corner

Sears - You might be better buying from a car boot or street corner
Sears – You might be better buying from a car boot or street cornerWhat do you expect when you buy from a street stall?An apparent bargain that doesn’t live up to expectations? The risk that your credit card details might be misused?Poor or non-existent customer service? No reasonableness in considering complaints?No responses to letters for redress?I experienced all this, NOT from buying from a petty criminal or black marketer but from one of USA’s most respected retailers.Sears advertised a mobile phone and I bought one. Things then went from bad to worse as they made me verify my details on expensive phone lines. My bank than warned me to change my cards as the Sears transaction exposed my credit cards. The customer service was abysmal with a series of confused statements which they used to justify their actions, even when clearly erroneous. Letters to management were ignored and complaints to their website were met with strong-arm, bully boy tactics of banning me rather than dealing with the complaint.I am disgusted by the way Sears treat their customers and frustrated by their nonchalance – they couldn’t care less if I have a valid complaint believing that I can do little to make them honour their website promises.I will never buy from Sears again.

Sears "customer service" staff are usually quick to offer help; BUT VERY, VERY, VERY SLOW to deliver.

I don't think the company care about customers.

Sears in Boston, Massachusetts - Very low quality immages

Had a photo session for family reunion at Sears at Square One Mall (first time in 20 years from 3 different countries!). Not a singe good shot of the family. The girl could not position 11 people against the background. 2 people are against some metal construction polls on every single photo. Shadows on faces. Bought CD. Very low resolution. Only good for 6X4. Less then 2 MP. Spend 4 hours trying to recover raw files from the girls at the studio the next day. All lost. The girls have no idea what they are doing. Pushing buttons like monkeys.

Sears in Edison, New Jersey - Refrigerator parts

I brought a Kenmore refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher. The refrigerator drawers started to break shortly after the warranty expired. In fact a think one broke before the warranty expired. So I finally broke down a bought the vegetable keeper "drawers" for $172 yes I said $172. I ask the parts service rep if it was both draws and he said yes. Only one draw was delivered. When I called back the parts person said he the Kenmore was not Sears and that is what "they" charged for the part and he had no way of knowing what the other rep said. I asked him if anyone else sold kenmore he said no. Then I said kenmore is sears. He said no again. I told him I thought it was outrageous to charge over $350 with shipping for two plastic draws. By the way my stove has cooking stains in the window, my dishwasher can't dissolve the squares dishwashing detergent, and oh yeah my washing machine has rust on the inside buy the bleach dispenser so you can only fill the washing machine half way. I know you don't care about customers it's a shame because I use to be a loyal customer but not anymore.

I feel certain that someone took the second drawer along with other stolen things from orders over the Internet and have a yard sale somewhere for money.

It HAS to be as there is too many things missing for them to be making the same mistakes all the time. They think they can get away with it because most people don't have the money for a lawyer. People should get together and file a class action lawsuit for damages.

Sears in Sahuarita, Arizona - Excessive Delivery Fees

While trying to purchase a new TV, I inquired as to the delivery and set-up fees. I almost dropped me teeth! For delivery it would cost $69.99 and an additional $99.99 to hook it up for me. This is outlandish. $169.98!!!! We are not made of money, we are on SS. No wonder Sears keeps losing business, and they just lost another customer to Sears and K-Mart.Avoid purchasing at Sears and K-Mart in Tucson, AZ. We did purchase a TV at a different retailer, and found someone to set it up correctly. We are almost 70 years old and just cannot deal with today's electronics.

Sears in Springfield, Missouri - Battery Ripoff

Bought Diehard from them a few months ago and installed it in my auto. Gave them the old one. New one lasted two months before the car wouldn't start so I took it out and transported it in my other vehicle to exchange. They put it on the charger and said it was fine. fast forward two more months and I'm at work, the battery is dead and my wife gets a jump and takes it in. They said it was swollen and defective,replaced it and goughed her 19.99 to install because I bought the original one from them and installed it myself. Sears are a bunch of money gouging thieves. I will spread the negative word and never shop there again.

Sears in Leeds, Alabama - Poor Delivery performance

Ordered full house of appliances 6 mos. ago. Initially to be delivered to lake house 80 miles away (necessitating a day commitment to be there). Despite a confirmation call the day before, the delivery was postponed, on the morning of delivery, for a week. (one day lost) Now only a part of order delivered (rest to be next week). (another day lost)... If a multi thousand dollar order takes over 6 mos. to be organized then is still not delivered even close to on time, a small order has no chance. Sell your Sears stock and avoid future dealings with such a disorganized company.

Sears - Sagging mattress,

I have tried over and over to have my mattress replaced . After 3 years we are sleeping in a ravine which has brought horrible neck and back pain! The so called technician came and measured the dip in 2 minutes and said good luck. Received a call from sears saying the dips were not deep enough. I guess they expect you to get out of bed with a step ladder because you will end up on the box springs before long! Terrible customer service and Sealy does not stand up to their products, called them also! Don't buy from Sears or this product, this supposedly was a high end mattress, I don't think so! :((( close that dept for sure!

With 350,000 employees you would think that at least some of them might be employed sorting out customer issues. It appears not, or else Sears don't believe any customer issues are their responsibility.

Either way, they have been a disgrace.

Sears in Ashburn, Virginia - Eight months later and still no refund for returned items

My story is a long one that started August 1, 2012. I was shopping online for a range and had a question, so I called for support. The gentleman who answered was pleasant and very helpful. He offered to process my order and set up delivery over the phone, and I did so. That means I never went through Sears.com or a store, so I never got a hard copy of my order. What I purchased was— — An LG range: $1409.99 — Range installation: 169.99 — An overhead microwave: 309.99 — Microwave installation: 189.99 — Electrical work in case there was no wiring for microwave: 159.99. The total came to $2239.95 plus tax, or $2351.95. I charged $2000.00 on my Sears card and paid the remaining $352.00 with a different card. Then came delivery and installation. The range was fine, but the microwave wouldn’t fit over it. The microwave was sent back, and consequently there were no installation or wiring costs incurred. My resulting purchase total was then $1501.00, including tax. So I was due a credit of $851.00. It’s important to note here that I never, absolutely never received a single piece of paperwork on this purchase. Even the delivery people came empty-handed. Indeed, I’ve had no email, no order number, no delivery sheet, and no invoice to reference. On top of that, my monthly statements have never contained an itemized list that I could reference. Can you imagine how impossible it is to try to get a refund without those things? I have had limited success getting my credit, and it’s taken months of numerous, frustrating, nonproductive phone calls to get what little I have received—$340.00. I have no clue how that figure was derived. It just appeared in my bank account one day, and there was nary a letter or a phone call explaining it. Now, remembering that I paid $352.00 with a different card, my balance on my Sears card for the range and installation should have been $1149.00. To date, however, I have paid $2062.00 for my purchase: $860.00 in regular monthly payments to Sears, a recent balance transfer of $850.00, plus the original $352.00 on my other credit card. Bottom line: Sears owes me $575.00, and I'm pretty near to giving up on getting it. Never mind getting a refund on the interest charges incurred during this time. What I've been through in trying to resolve this matter curls the hair. In short, I've experienced— — Enormous wait times and countless disconnections — Inability to reach someone I’ve spoken with, so that each time I called back to continue the process, I had to start from the beginning with a new person. — Constant transfers from one department to another and another — Absolute cluelessness from all but two service reps — Inability to speak to a manager — A ridiculously inadequate billing system (in fact, someone had to research my order because it wasn’t where it should have been in the system) — No computer tracking of my calls so that reps could see what had and should have happened to date. In total, I have spent days and days trying to get my money back. It’s taken almost eight months, and still the matter isn’t resolved. The reps are nice enough, and they do try, but their hands are tied by the company’s antiquated customer-service processes. Indeed, Sears has the absolute worst billing and customer service operations I’ve encountered in my 50+ years of shopping. I will never purchase from the company again, and I tell my experience to everyone who will listen. Although I emailed a Sears executive, I've since realized he wasn't the correct person to contact. Tomorrow, I'll be calling the executive complaint department. I can just imagine the runaround I'll get from them.
