Sears mistake not mine!

Hi I wrote a check to sears credit cards in the amount of$27.00 and mailed my check in, on time of course, Sears electronically debited $77.00 from my account, in balancing my check book I found the mistake, an hour or so later! Called my bank the next day to which they instructed me to call Sears, so another hour on the phone to get problem resolved, they are going to credit my bank account the $50.00. I wish that when I make a mistake like that I could just say oops I'm sorry that won't happen again and that would be the end of it, truth be told I have to pay for my mistakes, bank fees, late fees, extra interest. Sears says I'm sorry, the two or three hours of my time to find their mistake is worth nothing. Sincerely John

Sears in Louisville, Kentucky - Should not have passed quality in factory 2x

bought new washer&dryer set Apr,2012. Took dryer out of box, hooked it up, crash, boom, bang, opened door, drum not attached to dryer. Called repair, 10 days later, no loose screws or bolts in box or anywhere. Serviceman assembled on site. Dec.2012, crash, boom, bang again while drying clothes, opened door, drum is warped, off track, has dents from underside. Call repair, appt. in 9 days, meanwhile, new drum drop-shipped to home. Repair came, opened box of new drum, can't use, has same dents in it plus a pointed dent. Repair said dmgd from shipping. Not true, it is obvious it passed thru quality in mfg, but never should have. Box was packed good, small damage spot on box on corner where there were 5 layers of cardboard, no dmg. to side of box, impossible to say it was from shipping. next appt. 10 days. have made 5 trips to laundrymat for drying clothes. Repair was going to use that drum till I noticed the dents. Sears refuses to compensate.

Sears scammed me right before Christmas

I bought a ring on December 21 and i received a confirmation email and was waiting for email to tell me to come pick it up. Well i then got an email apologizing and stated that my store ran out and my card would not be charged. Well few days later my card was charged so I called sears online and was told it was normal to wait 5-7 days for a refund of a product. (even though you never receive it? ) but she said i was never charged. well i was thankful i was only waiting for this amount of money and could not believe Sears would be so disorganized.and i told the woman that yes I was charged and she said well its your credit card companies problem. I wrote several emails and then i was told to fax my billing statement to sears so I could prove i was charged for the ring i never got. At this point i figured my local sears would take car of me. Well they faxed it for me and got no help and no refund on the spot but said I would receive my money back in 3-5 days. Well I called lady at my local sears back because its been 8 days . She said she would check on it and call me back. This is now the point that I am blown away! Sears said that if she or if I even ask about my order or money not being refunded that it will start the whole process over . Sears said it takes 10 days to get refunded! omg so now if I call or email and even mention my money not being refunded that I have to start over? I was planning on finishing up my shopping on the December 21 when i picked up my ring but now I haven't spent one penny at sears and at this point probably never will.. I can not believe a store my whole family use to trust has hijacked my money and wants me to prove they charged me ? this is the worst nightmare of a company. Why would Sears want to treat a customer so poorly?

Sears in Cedar Rapids, Iowa - Promised delivery date fail

I bought a 55' TV from Sears. They were running a promotion on free delivery. Boy did I regret that. I should have just had a buddy get his truck and help me that day. Anyway as promised I got an automated phone call from Sears confirming a delivery between the times of 1:00 P.M. and 3:00 P.M. for 01/09/13. After hours of being late I made several phone calls and spoke to employees that could not speak English and I was assured that my delivery was next. Next never came! I ended up calling the store where I bought it and explained everything and they weren't much help either!

Sears in Fort Worth, Texas - Gift card

I ordered a gift card from the Sears.com website to be delivered via email to the recipient on December 25th. The following day, I spoke with the person and they had not received any email or gift card from Sears. I double-checked the email address, it was correct. I had them check their spam/junk folder and their filters and there was nothing. So I went online and contacted Sears about the problem. I submitted my complaint on December 27th. I received an email saying they would "research" the problem and I would receive a reply in 5-7 business days. Never received any further communication from Sears (email or phone). So I emailed back and inquired again. This time I was told someone would get back with me in 3-5 business days. Again - nothing. Then I decided to call customer service via phone. Went through the whole explanation with the person, gave them all the information, was placed on hold ... and then they came back and told me since it was a gift card, they couldn't do anything but send it to another department and someone would get back with me in 72 hours. So ... again, I'm waiting. Do I think I will actually hear from Sears? Not really. It's January 10th and the recipient still has not received the gift card. If I don't hear back from Sears yet again, I'm not sure what my next step will be.... but I am done being nice and polite with them.IF you ever send a Sears gift card you need to double-check with the recipient that it was received. Otherwise, it's possible that Sears is just taking your money and keeping it. BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I assume you paid, online, via credit card. If so, then dispute the charge immediately.

If you paid via debit card, you oughta know better! Once the money is gone, you have problems getting it back. In any event, stop having anything to do with Sears.

They are NOT the Sears, Roebuck & Co. we grew up with.

Sears in Lee's Summit, Missouri - Stolen my money has been 17 days

I ordered a high chair on dec 22nd, that showed was in stock. The item went out of stock immediately and said it was cancelled. My card was charged immediately. I chatted with 5 agents online and was told "it was a pre auth" and hasn't been charged. Well the charge posted on my account, WWW.SEARS.COM HOFFMAN EST Purchase Date: 12/24/12 Category: Retail Stores Purchase Posted -$58.69.I keep getting the run around and no answer. I've talked to Melissa, Kiki, Kim,Cristopher, I can go on because I have every record. What can be my next step? The switchboard has only the "online support" where I am getting no where.I just want my money, or a product. I have bought lawn mowers and several things from here and WON"T be doing that again. Don't ever buy anything from these crooks, they are quick to steal your money but don't want to give it back. I have faxed my bank statement twice at the cost of $2.50 each and "they" still haven't received it. Been told for 2 days my money was on it's way and now they dont' have the statement. funny huh.

Sears.Com Cancelled order and still charged my card

I placed an order on sears.com for two pairs of jeans for my daughter. I was charged the whole amount on Dec 17. When I received the order, there was only one pair of jeans and a bill stating they cancelled one pair of jeans with no explanation, but they charged me for both pairs. It took over 2 hours and 4 phone calls to get a refund. The customer service was routed through different countries each call. After finally getting through to a “manager” I still had to wait on the phone another 20 minutes. It has been 24 days and still no refund.

Sears bogus coupon scam

SEARS OUTLET FRAUD, Got a twenty dollar off coupon code for my order of a toolbox that was to be new in the box. Well the toolbox was out of the box being used as a work station at the counter with a pile of *** on it, with damage too. I asked If I could have some cardboard to place it in my truck, remember I bought it as new in the box ! Nope your on your own was the reply and then a system wide crash of their computers. Gee I just traveled 50 miles to pick this up, You'll have to come back tomorrow was the reply.. So much for trying to avoid the over priced shipping option. And for that $20 of coupon code if you use in thirty days, with a $299 order, well gee it's bogus won't work no way no how. A note to customer service was a no reply. Sears won't be happy until the doors slam shut.

I bought a Icoffee maker and started a account for $20 in savings. Well it did not work and they did not carry a replacement or was willing to let myself exchange product for equally priced item.

This forced return by Sears causes a revocation of all earned, spent or not, coupons or points in transaction to be voided. This company Scam allows them to take away all advertised and given discounts for Christmas because the percent of returns by buyer and with gift receipts by recipients probably is in the 70% + range and if you spent your bonus points they will re access it to your credit card for an, un agreed upon, amount that was not signed at register. My reward by manager JEREMY SILVA.

(Jeremy.silva@searsbluecrew.com)

After arguing he gives myself a sticker with a cash register transaction on it and tails me I will have to come back in 24 hours and I could use the credit but before handing it to me he tells me and the other customers that I do not DESERVE this credit. I asked him to sign his name he refused and said he would not be threatened.

I told him I would report him to call for action 11 news. He told me he was going to remove the credit. I told him he was costing SEARS another big purchase today and I walked away to leave after I was half way across store 10 feet from door he yells from tool department, across home goods, about 150'. That I was banned from the store.

The last time I heard someone yell that loud in a store was during a robbery. This man is costing Sears it's revenue and has no business interacting with customers. If you no how to link it corporate feel free. A $350 purchase to be returned and loss on a $1500 air compressor that was to be purchased that day.

I no that my moms gift was ruined and I then had to buy another gift to replace a junk item sears stocked for Christmas with no warranty being honored. In my opinion they are purposely hurting consumers to increase their profit margin. $25 from me times how many customers and it equals corporate fraud, false advertising involving credit cards, adds for promotional bonuses and just having good products with exchanges available.

Very shameful way to treat American bread consumers that are loyal to your brand.

Not honoring warranties is the first sign of a company that is going to shut down. Thank JEREMY SILVA for the loss of store at SEARS at Southgate Colorado Springs Colorado.

His Email is above. Hope it never happens to another customer while trying to shop for his mom on Christmas.

Sears in North Wales, Pennsylvania - Ms. Daddazio

I purchased a recliner in the Sears Store on 12/02/2012. The recliner was suppose to be delivered on 12/20/12. They did not update my contact info and the recliner never got delivered. Referred to a case manager who screwed everything up even more. This date 01/08/13 and still no recliner. After 2 hrs on the phone with Sears, I get store manager who tells me I am not getting reimbursed for all the problems and he doesn't know how those problems happened. I call back customer resolution department and get disconnected. Sears is not a reliable business and they don't stand by there mistakes. They hire inadequate individuals who cannot please a customer. In Sears the customer is always wrong!

Refused delivery on open box and Sears cant figure it out.

This is actually my wife's experience but I'm posting is as a warning about the business practices at Sears. In the 3rd week or so of November she ordered some shirts from Sears for xmas presents. When they were delivered the box was opened and there was no packing slip in it. Luckily we caught the UPS guy trying to slink away and refused delivery of the box (since we had no idea if everything that was supposed to be in it was actually there because it was opened on one end) and immediately took pictures of it. We figured Sears would do the right thing and immediately reship new shirts and take the shipping issue up with UPS. Well how wrong we were. Not only did they not do that they cant seem to figure out how to give my wife back the 13.99 the order cost. its been more than a month now and multiple calls to folks who dont even seem to care to get the refund processed. How hard is it to give us back the money you took out immediately?? Evidently very very hard. We do keep getting email says it would be taken care of in 305 business days and they were 'researching' Here is an example. We have gotten like 5 of these useless emails. Good Morning Lisa, Thank you for contacting sears.com regarding your order number xxxxxx. We sincerely apologize that you did not receive the refund yet. As you have not received a response, again I have forwarded a request to our fulfillment center regarding the refund. Please allow 3-5 business days as we will contact you by e-mail once we have received a response. We regret any inconvenience and appreciate your continued patience. We want to make you happy. Please take our survey to tell us how we are doing. WHAT ARE THEY RESEARCHING???? WE EMAILED THEM THE PHOTOS OF THE *** BOX!!!!!!!!!!!! Not only did they do the wrong thing by not shipping a new dumb shirt mutliple calls to folks we cant understand and cant understand us cant seem to get back a *** 13.99 after 4 weeks. Its pathetic and a prime example of what not to do.
