Sears has left us without HOT WATER, again!!
We purchased and had installed a NEW water heater in April 201 from Sears. In June we had no hot water, so we called Sears and they replaced the part that was not working. In November Sears has been called twice again b/c we still do not have hot water. Sears had two parts replaced. Again, we still do not have hot water, so they want to replace the first part they replaced in June. My husband called this time to complain and request a new water heater. We have been without hot water for three weeks. He works hospital with critically ill patients and his uniforms have to be washed in hot water. My husband has been on the phone w/Sears for over 45 mins and transfered six times. Still repeating the same story and requesting a new water heater. It's cold as it's late November. So we have to bathe for the next four days or until Sears decides to get a new water heater installed without hot water. What will it take a multi-billion company to replace a water heater that cost them a few hundred dollars? A lawsuit? Talking to press?

Sears Doesn't Stand Behind Products Sold on Their Website!
I ordered and paid $731.84 for what I thought was an iPad3 with Wi-Fi and 4G network from Sears.com. Surprisingly I received the iPad from a person in the Bronx, NY and the packing slip was from Amazon. I was told by Apple that I received an iPad2 with Wi-Fi only (without 4G). When I tried to contact Sears, they directed me to Amazon which showed no record of the sale. Amazon suggested I try a company called Idolian. After several days of what I will call "the runaround" from Idolian, I received a label to return. After returning the product, I was told by some person at Idolian that I could pay a 50% restocking fee (this is unrealistic) or they could return the iPad to me because it was what I ordered. Exchanging this product was not an option and now I'm out of $731.84 and stuck with an iPad I did not order! Sears never offered to facilitate a resolution or offer an exchange. This was not a cheap item and I can't believe Sears did not stand behind a product that was ordered from their website by Sears gift certificate! I hope everyone stops shopping at Sears! I thought Sears was a reputable company that stood behind their products, but I was wrong. Sears is totally "hands off" and has not offered a resolution!
Sears Online -- Bait and Switch
November 15 I ordered laptops online from Sears, received calls from their security folks to check my identity, received order confirmations with estimated shipping dates -- left town and did not check email until evening of November 18 and found that within 24 hours I had received emails telling me that some of my orders had been cancelled because I did not respond to security check emails although I had previously taken care of each and every one of them via phone call. Morning of Nov 19, talked to Sears customer service who apologized profusely, I replaced the orders, found that many of the items were out of stock, had to order substitutes that were less capable but more expensive, went through security check again -- all is well. Checked email on 20 November and two of the orders had been cancelled as "out of stock." Called Sears, went through rigamarole, got substitute items ready at greater cost, of course, but then the Sears credit card wouldn't go through as Sears had not really credited back by cancelled orders although the email from their SVP of Marketing said ""Your account has been promptly credited back." The operative word being HAS, but I found out that, according to Sears, HAS actually means 3-5 business days. The customer service folks have been very polite but all of them have told me that nothing can be done by anyone. Sears "managers" repeated this "nothing can be done" mantra and refused to let me speak to anyone higher than a call center supervisor although I explained to all of them that I had a deadline to meet. The laptops are intended for a school in Belize that a nonprofit has agreed to ship for no cost if I can get them delivered to the nonprofit by December 3, otherwise I have been quoted up to $4,900 for shipping. I called the number on the back of the Sears credit card and got the refunds credited back immediately. Had to go into a Sears store to verify my identity, had the associate order the substitute products (at much greater price), paid additional money to expedite shipping, went through security again with the associate looking at my identification, placed the orders, got a receipt, received an order confirmation but still have not recieved a shipping confirmation. To add insult to injury, I did receive two emails in response to my complaints -- the emails were not from the SVP that I had sent them to but were from staff saying: Thank you for contacting sears.com regarding your order number 429xxxx. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience you are experiencing on your order, as it was canceled. I certainly empathize with the frustration this has caused to you.

Apparently online sale prices doesn't include Alaska. I am trying to buy a treadmill online and pick up in a store and the price before check out is $779. I go to check out and enter all my information then the price jumps to $899. There is no sale tax in Alaska,...
Sears Thanksgiving Sale- Falsely Advertised
I went out this Thanksgiving night to purchase a 4 piece kitchen appliance suite. I was interested in the Kenmore Elite appliances, and even more so with the Door Buster special that says 35% off Kenmore Elite appliances from 8pm-12am. I arrived at the store around 8:30pm. I knew what I wanted and handed the sale man the list I printed off line. I told him I was here because of the 35% off sale.He had to find an ad and check with the manager to make sure I could get the 35% discount. He came back and proceeded with my transactionn.. However, when it came time to apply the 35% off discount, he and the manager said it did not apply. I was given several different reasons. One was that the item was a hot buy and they were excluded. Well, the item is not a hot buy, this was verified by the manager. Next I was told it was because it had to be with your Sears card, which was shown to them and to be used for the payment. Next I was told that the 35% discount was already applied to the price shown. This cannot be!! He then said it qualified for the 10% off. I told him that I would take my business elsewhere as the appliances have been at a sale price for over a week, at some point even cheaper and that the ad clearly says 35% off Kenmore Elite. I went to another local Sears hardware location. I was given a similar run around at this location, except the employees here were rude. The salesman could not confirm the sale price as he said he didnt know all he could do was ring them up and see what happens. I spoke with the store manager who laughed at the idea another 35% off would be applied to the items I wished to purchase. I told her wasnt that the point about it being a Doorbuster- that it was a really good deal?! Even gave her the example of the 32inch TV advertised for $99. I told her that the ad said 35% off Kenmore Elite, and she read it. She told me that it was up to 35% and that the items were already on sale. I told her the ad does not say up to 35% it says 35%. She looked at it again and told me that it only applied to the washer and dryer that are pictured below. I told her those items were not even Kenmore Elite and read the ad to her again "35% off Kenmore Elite appliances". She told me that she couldn't do anything about it and she didn't know why the ad wasnt printed right. When asked for a corporate number she told me there wasnt one. She eventually sent me away with a useless customer service number. I have purchased from Sears in the past and hoped to do so again. Unless they go back and honor the price I was expecting to pay, they have lost a customer for life due to their shenanigans and false advertising. Everyone else beware!!! Their sales do not really exist. The ad is falsely advertising!!

Sears hoax and lies appleton wi.
Your thursday doorbusters sale in appleton wisconsin was a hoax, a lie, we waited in line for hours, we were one of the first ones in line and we were told that we would get a ticket at 6:00 pm for the tv's (32" @$97) and other items as advertised in the newspaper and it was 6:20 and we were told that instead of 6:00 pm the tickets would be hand out at 7:00. Then at 7:20, they said they would hand the tickets as soon as some online ordering was done, and at 7:45 we where told that there were no tv's or any tickets to be hand out so we were lured there with a bunch of lies or someone didn't do their job right. Bad experience and a waste of time.

Sears lied and stole my money
I bought a pool table at sears with the help of a sales associate. The price said $250 and the tag read "everything needed to play". Before purchasing it, I asked what it included and why was it so cheap. The sales associate said it was on sale because it was last year's model, and it came with the table top, legs, ping pong table top, balls, sticks, and overhead lights. I paid cash and was told I could pick it up in a few days at the warehouse. Friday came, and I drove to the warehouse to pick up my pool table in a truck that I borrowed. When I got to the warehouse, I was told only one box came in, so I would have to go back to the store to find out what was going on. I drive to the store, talk to many different people to try and find out what the problem is, and am finally told that they would deliver it free of charge the following Tuesday. When Tuesday finally came, the truck showed up carrying only the legs to the table. I refused the delivery, called the store to inform them of what happened, and waited several hours (most of the day, in fact) before heading back to Sears. When I got there I spoke to the same person that answered the phone when I called. He informed me that after doing some investigating on what seemed to be the problem, he took the price tag and description off of the display that was advertising the pool table because it was incorrect and I in fact only purchased the legs. I then told him I wanted my money back because I was tired of dealing with their mistake. The store manager then came to talk to me and explain that they would be printing out a check for me and mailing it to my address whenever they get a chance, and she couldn't give me an estimated delivery date. I explained that I paid cash, never possessed any merchandise, and want nothing more than my cash back immediately. The entire time she spoke to me she had an attitude, she was rude, and she guaranteed I will NEVER shop at Sears again, I will be picketing on Black Friday to let others know how Sears steals peoples' money, and I will continue to tell this story to anyone who will listen until I get my money back that they owe me and either an apology from the rude store manager Sandra Johnson, the pool table I tried to purchase, or the interest accrued on the money they have had in their possession that rightfully belongs to me.
