Sears in Los Angeles, California - Sear did not refund my money

I order a doll from sear.com. My order has never delivered. I email sear.com. They said that they canceled my order (without informing me and refund my money). They promised to refund my money in 3 to 5 business days. Time has passed but I have not received my money. I email them again and they repeat the same thing ( tell me to wait for 3 to 5 business days). I read the other complaint about sear. Many people like me have a hard time getting back our money from sear. It is no wonder their brand is going down

Did you use your credit card? If so then you probably won't see the credit until your next billing statement. Sears can not control that, your credit card bank does.

Seriously, how long have you had a credit card??

Sears in Colorado Springs, Colorado - Item not in stock, charged anyway

Update by user Feb 25, 2013

There has been no change since I have posted my complaint so I decided to contact my credit union and file fraudulent charges against Sears. I received a provisional credit to my account and my credit union is now handling the problem. GOOD RIDDANCE!!

Original review posted by user Jan 25, 2013

On December 11, 2012, we attempted to purchse a gift for Christmas through Sears.com. Their website said it was in stock. We placed the order, recieved a confirmation, then shortly after that same evening, Sears.com cancelled the order because it WAS NOT in stock. I immedialtey went online to check my bank account and there was a pre-auth for the amount purchased. It stayed there for three days and then the charge went through. So here we are, January 25, 2013 and still no resolve. Really guys?!? I have made countless phone calls, jumped through all the hoops they've asked me to and still no results. I know the amount is not alot to most folks but to a family who struggling financially, it is everything. I am so frustrated and will never do business with Sears or Kmart again!

Ridiculous return policy with sears

I returned a craftsman Impact gun I got for Christmas with the receipt and asked to upgrade to a larger Dewalt. The store did the exchange online with CPO. The wrong gun was sent so I called CPO. I was told that the unit was a little more money and had to give my credit card to them to make up the difference. I was told that when they received the other gun back I would be credited the money. They didn't tell me that the could only credit me with a Sears gift card. Both Sears and CPO refuse to do anything else. This forces me to spend my money at Sears. I had the original return with receipt and am should get that money back. Sears and CPO both said "tough" They suck.

Thanks for the advice 'Get a Life". Going into the store seems like a good idea, unless you have purchased on-line from an international location.

I don't really think it's a credible option.

Also interesting to hear your experience with multiple complaints. I don't...

I waited a month to hear from Sears after their promises of assistance (see comments from Sears). THEY NEVER GOT BACK TO ME APART FROM TRYING TO CENSOR ME.

See my entry 'Sears Gags Complaints'. Their customer service response is to try to shut you up rather than deal with their failings.

Sears.com sucks

I ordered a DVD from sears.com on December 23, 2012, never received it on the promised delivery date and when I was asked to wait another 2-3 weeks I asked for a refund. The refund was issued and as of Jan 24, 2013 still nothing, no money and no merchandise. After calling multiple times, having some condescending scripted speech muttered to me and finally being rudely hung up on 3 times I contacted Sears Holdings Corporate offices. I was promptly transferred to what then call their Executive Level Customer Service where I finally talked to a person with a brain! From that moment on it was truly amazing how kindly and professionally I was treated and was assured I would receive a refund and was even given a personal phone number that I could contact this person back if I had any issues. The thing that makes me most angry, (not directed at the wonderful young lady that finally assisted me), it took 1 full month and then I was informed that Sears never had the item in stock, even at the time I placed the order nobody in this outsourced help desk land had the brains to look this information up! Sears.com needs to get its head out of its *** and start thinking if they want to stay in business, I worked for Sears from 1983-1998 and although retail is a rough business, if you treat your customers with respect and good service they are loyal to you for life! I will NEVER BUY FROM THIS WEBSITE AGAIN!Sears, learn from Amazon, they treat their customers like people and not cattle!

Sears in Cary, North Carolina - Kenmore Elite Refrigerator less than 2 weeks old problems

Update by user Jan 30, 2013

Just got a call from sears after they told us that the 400.00 protection plan would replace it with another up to the cost of 3000.00 which is what it is usually. They will not replace it with the same type refrigerator.

I'm going to the BBB now and the attorney General with this.

I'm sick of sears. I will also be contacting the Executive office at sears.

Update by user Jan 30, 2013

We I did as the post from sears says to do and they gave me a case number and I have not heard another thing. I should have just taken it back on saturday as I had planned.

Instead we went to the store and they told us to get the sears protection plan and they would replace it if we had that. So we spent almost $400.00 more and they guy comes out today and tells us that the stainless finish is not covered on it.

We plan to take it back to the store this weekend. This is the last time I will ever buy anything from any Sears store or online.

I'm considering taking the Grill I purchase the day after the fridge back also. I'm sick of sears and there lies

We purchased a Kenmore Elite Stainless Refridgerator from Sears on Jan 13, 2013. It was a floor model but still should be a new refridgerator. We et it home and remove the old one and put this one in it's place and get everything hooked up and part of the Led's are burnt out. We call and they come out and order and part and replace it yesterday 1/24/2013. We start noticing the stainless is fading so we call and ask them to fix this. It should not fade. They inform us they can't do anything about it. About 3 hours later the Refridgerator comes up with Er 15 on the display. We look in the book and there is nothing about this error 15 We call in again and there computers are down on 1/24/2013 We call back today and tell them the problem and they will send someone out again on Wed Jan 30 2013 to look at it. I should not be having all these problems with a new refridgerator and the stainless should not be fading and spotting. I plan to carry it back to the store on Sat Jan 26 2013. I will go buy one from a place that would have already replaced it. I will never buy another apliance of any type from sears and will tell everyone I know about this problem.

I also purchased a refrig from Sears - Sears canceled order - never delivered - never informed me (after I waited for deliver) - AND charged my credit card. Now after several deadend attempts with "Customer Service" - I am going to dispute charge with my credit card company.

So disappointed in Sears....

it should not be this hard. I will not do business with them again either.

BEWARE Consumer- Sears has the worst customer solutions dept!!

We purchased all new appliances from sears. Our range broke within 6 months and we had a technician come out and he said it was fixed (3 days before Christmas Eve). Day before Christmas Eve it broke! We called frantically as we were having a house full of guests that we were cooking for! We explained their tech broke it- he was just here. Sears did nothing short of laughing in our faces when we begged for a last minute repair. We were told numerous times we would receive a call back, we were transferred everywhere! Nothing, no resolution, no empathy, no manager they even said. Customer solutions is horrible! One week after Christmas we received the repair- 2 hours past the window and horrible customer solutions again! Lady was no non helpful and should not be in customer service! One week after that- guess what?!- broke again! We are waiting again for a repair and I called to complain and after half hour wait- disconnected! I want to scream! I don't want to do business with them anymore, but I have their appliances. I have never in my life been so irate with a company!

Most good stores will take returns or exchanges without receipts, it's just good business. When they don't it is a sign that, that you should not do business with them. BTW IdgieThreadgoode + LadyScot = *** W..,.H..O..R..E..s!.

Sears in La Crosse, Wisconsin - One damaged cooktop, ten phone calls, three hang ups, and a partridge in a pear tree

Seems as though there is a common theme with Sears- pass the buck and when all else fails disconnect the phone call. Started by ordering a kitchen set of appliances from Brian. This part went great- he thouroghly walked us through the purchasing process and helped us choose appliance that best suited our farmhouse renovation. It went down hill from there. Appliances were to be delivered. Delivery guy called from the store- could not find the cooktop. They brought the rest of the stuff and said the cooktop would be delivered. Great....except they showed up three hours late on Christmas eve so I sat at our empty house waiting for them while I missed our family Christmas party. Should have been mad but I felt more for the delivery guys being forced to deliver on a holiday than me waiting. Then it gets bad... Store couldn't find the cooktop and the national delivery number said it was delivered. Finally I just went for store manager, tracy. She quickly ordered a new top and scheduled a prompt delivery. Great. The cooktop came, we later opened the box. Damaged. The knobs had been bent and one rubber the high low print right off. Called the store. They said call warranty. Called warranty. They said call delivery. Called delivery. They referred me to a product specialist. He then put me on hold. I was disconnected. I called back. I was put on hold for thirty minutes. Hung up called back. They transferred me back to delivery. This guy transferred me to an unknow department. She said they would deliver a new one. Great. I simply asked that it not be delivered and that I wanted to pick it up at the store to a) save time b) not be forced to take time off of work to wait for delivery. She said that couldn't be done. The next day I called the local store and spoke to the appliance manager because I had little faith in anyone I talked to via the national numbers. He was more than willing to make sure the item was ordered and to call me when it arrived at the store as he had no reservation with me picking it up. So...I'll see what next week brings when it is suppose to arrive. In conclusion, I feel as though my story echoes many others who trusted Sears, sears customer service does very little servicing, and the people at my local store saved me from insanity. My advice to others: bypass sears, head to your locally owned appliance store, pay a little more, be content that you never have to deal with sears' customer service.

Dear Anonymous378434:

Please accept our sincere apologies for the difficulties you experienced with your new appliance deliveries. We certainly understand how frustrating and inconvenient it has been for you to contact our delivery team regarding delivery of your cooktop. This is not the type of service that you deserve or the type of service that Sears has long been known for. We would also like to apologize for your experience while attempting to reach our team by phone. It is unacceptable to be transferred to numerous agents while they attempted to help you with your delivery issue. Further, to be hung up on while waiting to be helped is very upsetting. My name is Susan with Sears Social Media Support Escalations team. We are a single point of contact for escalated issues which means that we handle situations from start to finish with one dedicated case manager. If you would allow us the opportunity, we would like to connect you with a dedicated case manager to further discuss your experience and see what can be done to turn things around. We value your business very much and want to make sure that everything that can be done to help you is being done.

At your convenience please contact our office via email at SMAdvisor@searshc.com and a dedicated case manager will contact you directly.

A warning about Sears

Update by user Mar 18, 2013

Still fighting to be heard by Sears. Their customer service is a disgrace.

After being banned from the Sears "community" pages for complaining about their abismal service I wrote to ensure the Sears CEO knew about the company's 'bully-boy' tactics. Weeks later, with no reply to my letter from Sears I can only assume they sanction this approach with their (NOW FORMER) customers.

I warn you not to purchase from Sears or you may endure a similar experience.

Update by user Jan 30, 2013

Sears ‘HAPPY CUSTOMER’ team just give me the blues!

Sears talk the talk but MISERABLY FAIL TO WALK THE WALK.

HERE’S THE ADVERT … Sears BLUE RIBBON team is supposed to make nearly all of their most disgruntled customers happy. Not my words but those of Sears' Divisional President who said ‘Blue Ribbon, is designed to handle service calls that had gone bad’ and that these calls “go to a special team … totally empowered to do whatever they need to do to make the customer happy — without interference from managers or anyone else up the organizational chain” resulting in ‘Sears Home Services currently retaining 96 percent of its ‘BLUE RIBBON’ customers’.

HERE’S THE TRUTH … The Blue Ribbon Manager contacted me around a month after postal letters to Sears top brass. After an initial hollow, generic apology Sears stated that my account was fraudulent and that I should sort things out with my bank!!

The HAPPY team sure have a bizarre approach to sorting out my problems.

After so many emails to Sears, I would have hoped that their Manager might have had a better understanding of the issues.

While it tested my patience (yet again), I explained that I had brought the fraudulent activity to their attention and that I had (in writing) an admission from Sears security centre that the fraudulent activity resulted from ‘a vendor which seemed suspicious’.

The Happy Team did not acknowledge, never mind address the fact that Sears failed to supply the purchased item after I accepted their advertised deal. Similarly, there was no appreciation of the considerable trouble and loss that resulted exclusively from Sears reneging on the deal.

The rest is a similar pattern to before; i.e. I write a series of 4, often detailed accounts offering any additional information that might be required – Sears to date ignore my communications.

Sears BLUE RIBBON contact was a bolt from the blue. However, I’m blue in the face explaining and look like being left with the blues.

I bought from Sears as their website stated ‘When you purchase a product from us online, … We'll ensure its safe delivery ... We look at it as fulfilling a promise’.

THIS, IN MY EXPERIENCE, ADDS INSULT TO INJURY.

I now trust Sears even less than before and cannot see them ever honouring their advertised deal. I have now made it a crusade to warn others; Be very cautious and sceptical of any appealing Sears offers. It’s not just that may be disappointed, but that you could have your credit details compromised, have to pay to discuss this with their security centre, waste hours with a series invariably different ‘customer service’ reps AND, if you do get the BLUE RIBBON team the only way they’ll make you happy is if get pleasure from JOKES!

My view? – I have been cheated and abused and so I intend to let as many know about it as possible.

(The only positive is that I believe Sears are aware to the potential impact of www.pissedconsumer.com)

Original review posted by user Jan 23, 2013

Sears might be hot on useless warnings like “Do not use while sleeping” on their hairdryers! But what about a website warning like “Do not assume the low prices offered are accurate or will be honoured”. If Sears had said that I wouldn’t have bought their mobile phone for I was then suckered into a number of premium rate telephone calls and many wasted hours in over 40 emails just hoping they would be true to their word and supply the product at the price paid. I thought they were honourable, respectable and could be trusted. Instead I’ve been exposed to fraud, am now out of pocket and feel cheated through their broken promises. To add insult to injury, just about every time I wrote to get things sorted out I got a different “customer service” rep, none of which seemed to appreciate my plight. Letters to the top brass were ignored. Seems like Sears can advertise as they like then blame others when they wish to renege (in this instance a 3rd party vendor who had not received and knew nothing of my order). My experience with Sears was terrible. My advice is to ignore their bargains; they may be a “steal”, but not in a good way.

Sears – Quick to offer help… Slow to deliver

When I say slow I really mean dawdling sluggish to the point of not moving at all.

THEY ARE THE WORST ORGANISATION I HAVE DEALT WITH IN 30 YEARS!

I have sent emails to;

Webcenter@customerservice.sears.com,

SMAdvisor@searshc.com,

international@customerservice.sears.com,

Sears_international@customerservice.sears.com,

orders@customerservice.sears.com,

smsupport@searshc.com,

SearsCares@searshc.com,

and

blueribbonservice2@searshc.com.

These emails have been sent to Russ S., Kristin B., Buddy J., Gabriel A., Misty H. and Anthony C. to name but a few. Most have never replied, never mind assisted.

I’m really interested in those that have had a similar experience; i.e. Sears offers of help that amount to nothing.

I’m keen to let others know of the hours and hours and hours of time I’ve spent trying to get Sears to live up to THEIR promises. To date, they have strung me along with an appealing advert which has resulted in my expense, exposure of my credit card details to fraud and, perhaps most annoying, Sears reneging on their advertised product and dishonestly blaming their supplier.
