File federal complain against Sears.com!

I bought a bed from Sears.com. UPS tracking number shows "Delivered" while I never got to see it near my front door at all. Since then I have been calling customer service to get my refund. It's been a month now. First CR(customer Representative) created a trace for lost/stolen item and said you'll hear from us when we get investigation result from UPS.Later I came to know that trace was created on 9/21/12 but submitted on 9/28/12 (WTF!!)Then I called once again after a week, next CR said your item is back in warehouse, I will send it back again and you'll see another charge on your card which we'll refund back once you receive the bed. Then called again and talked to case manager, she said you'll get theresult by Thursday. Same stories over and over again. They are expert at turning you down. Do yourself a favor go to https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/FTC_Wizard.aspx?Lang=en and file a federal complain for them. Also, create a dispute on transaction with your bank

Sears in Castle Rock, Colorado - Good luck getting your account credited when you return a product.

I purchased a product online, so I had to return the product to their warehouse directly. They've had the product in their possession for 3 weeks, but still haven't credited my sears account, so I'm paying finance charges on it as well. The most frustrating part, is I've requested that they credit my account 4 times, and I keep getting the same repetitive response...."please wait 3-5 business days.." I've spoken to a manger as well, and his response is that they cant do anything more than they've already done (which is nothing, really). Grr.. I was going to recommend that you dont buy anything online, but after reading the other posts, maybe we shouldnt be buying ANYTHING from Sears.

I am sorry to hear that we have let you down and would like to offer some assistance. I am very sorry to see that you had such a disappointing experience with the return of your online order.

At your convenience, please contact our office via email at smadvisor@searshc.com so you don’t have to be upset by this any longer. In the email, please provide a contact number and the phone number the order were purchased under (if different than the contact phone number) and we will call you directly.

Sears in Joliet, Illinois - Failed to repair microwave per schedule

Service was to come between 08:00 and noon window on thursday. At 08:00 AM Thursday a message on answering machine stated that we were first stop and they are on the way to our house. At 11:30 no one had come or called. I called to inquire: girl asked- no one came yet. She then tried to get a sale in to me and she was not interested in my call and my issue. I told her that I want service on the warranty on this piece of garbage that is less than two years old. She transfered me to Latonna and she made excuses for Sears staffing and said she would get me a 1:00 to 5:00 window that afternoon. I wasted the morning because of incompetent scheduling or lack of employees. I am now waiting for the Friday morning 08:00 to noon and hope they send someone that gives a *** and provide customer service. It would be wonderful if Sears would hire a few of the 9% unemployed.

Customer service At Sears Online

I ordered some merchandise at Sears online. They asked if I wanted to do a layaway and I checked the box that said Layaway. once I submitted my Debit card information it told me how much I would pay for the 8 weeks layaway. When i checked my email the layaway did not go through and they charged me the total amount. Ok so a manager by the name of Veronica ID40040 said that because 1 of the items that was a second party through Sears don't do layaway is why the other Items didn't go through. I am soooo upset. I can understand that i had to pay for the item that I couldn't layaway but to cancel the rest of the item and them tell me OH WELL there is nothing we can do about it. The sales person was rude and uncaring about the mistake that Sears made and I have been a long standing customer with Sears for years after today I won't be a customer of Sears anymore. What happend to Customer Service At one time Sears was known for their Customer Service now your service has GONE TO THE DOGS....

Sears Protection Agreements... NOT Protective!

Do not expect satisfaction with the Sears Protection Agreement. Case No.24084472. Send in a camera for an issue under the protection agreement. It comes back. I do not use it until 2 months later. Same problem as sent in. Procrastinate so gets sent back a month later for same issue. (3 months between.) Returned with not of customer abuse. Again, procrastinate so contact again today, 4 months later. Told it was "liquid damage." Huh? And this is not covered. When state same problem as first time and never repaired, told; "Liquid damage so we can not repair it under the protection agreement." I state is same problem. I am told had liquid damage so it can not be sent back. So, how does same problem, never corrected, become an customer abuse issue? Sounds like a way to not have to deal with their own warranty. Guess selling something that will not be delivered on makes the company money.

Sears in New York, New York - Menaced and mistreatyed by sales associates

Dear Mr. D'Ambrosio: President and CEO Sears Holding Corporation 3333 Beverly Road Hoffman Estates , IL 60179 I want to bring to your attention a terrible episode, which occurred at Sears, located in Jefferson Valley Yorktown Heights NY on 10/5/12. Two Lands End sales associates [Jeff and an unidentified female] mistreated, threatened, menaced, and verbally abused me during a purchase transaction. I have brought this incident to the attention of the Sears manager Ms. Eva Gardner and to the Lands End Management. I have been a Sears's customer for over 40 years and I have never witnessed such mistreatment by your employees. I have personally spent thousands of dollars at Sears. My family, friends, and co-workers shop at Sears. Are you going to make sure that we are safe while shopping at your stores? I respectfully request that you look into this matter and make sure that it is properly handled. I would like to know the outcome of your investigation. I cannot feel safe at your store until this matter is resolved. Respectfully yours, Hortencia Rivera

My complaint to Sears

I felt as though I was treated absolutely poorly when I called the SEARS STORES WHITE MARSH MALL, Store #: 0001854, 8200 PERRY HALL BLVD BALTIMORE, MD 21236. I had to call a total of 4 times. The first two times I called I was hung up on, while customer service tried to contact merchandise pick up for my online purchase (Order#401690836). The third time, I was told that merchandise pick up was not answering the phone. I was then supposed to be transferred to a store manager, but instead it was a sales associate named Steve White or Wright (if that was his real name). He told me that all supervisors and managers were in a meeting and would not talk to me. He also said he had "no clue" when they would be done with this meeting. I asked him, " If I was in the building right now with a problem, no manager would be able to talk to me?" He said yes. Wow. Ok, I waited for a phone call and grew inpatient. I called back a fourth time and this is when I was on the phone for two hours. First was to the store again and they transferred me to care solutions. The woman I spoke to here said she documented every thing and then tried to contact the store for me. She either could not get in touch with someone or she could not confirm my order arrived. She was polite and transferred me to the online customer care. This woman was also polite, and said that my order already arrived at the store. I never received an email or a phone call that it arrived. So she attempted to verify it was there and called the store. She said no one picked up the phone after trying several times. It seemed she gave up, so I asked what was she going to do for me since I've gone through all this and I'm the customer here. She transferred me to a case manager. Great… the story gets told again. She put me on hold and tried to contact the store… success. She called a different department and made it to merchandise pick up somehow. Ok, this is where I get even more upset. She tells me that whoever checked in my order made a mistake and that's why I never received notification that my order arrived. So all this could have been avoided if someone did their job. First of all, I should of never had to call in the first place. Second, I should of only had to call once. Third, I should of spoke to a manager (which 3 hrs later, still has not called… long meeting). Fourth, Sears could not even get a hold of Sears, so I had to suffer through two hours of being put on hold and re-telling my story several times. I will not purchase anything from Sears or Kmart or any other store under the same umbrella. This is not how you treat customers. And there was no attempt by any store manager to rectify what their sales associate Steve White/Wright said to me. My review… 0 stars.

Sears Kenmore Elite -Bawahahaha!!!!

We purchased 6, count them SIX, Kenmore Elite appliances in one day totalling about $5000. Within the past two weeks, I have spent OVER $1100 dollars to fix them. I am going to spell out our situation in glorious detail. First, the refrigerator...what a beauty. Stainless steel, French doors with the ice maker on rhe left top door with the freezer on the bottom. So far, so good, right??? Well, that is until you are dying of thirst and want to get ice through that nifty little hole in the front of the fridge, specifically put there for that purpose. SWING AND A MISS!!! I found out that little hole is just for decoration. No ice comes comes out of there unless you want to spend 500 to fix the auger something that makes those delicious nuggets of frostiness pop out of teir intended chute. Now, lets move onto my dishwasher. That stainless steel beauty is such a flirt with all those little red and green lights blinking at me all day and night. I am still trying to figure out if she is flirting with us, or if it is her desperate plea to be TAKEN OUT AND SHOT TO PUT HER OUT OF HER MISERY. She needs a new mother board, cha Ching! $208 and change please!!!! No one could have 3 Kenmore Elite appliances that don't work, could they? ONE LUCKY FAMILY I KNOW CAN!!!! Can YOU guess who it is??? Mr. RANGE fell ill as well. He needed a new control panel. What you all need to understand is that both "cook" and "bake" are FOUR LETTER WORDS IN MY HOUSE! I desperately try to avoid them at all cost. I can count in two hands the number of time I have actually "cooked" in this oven. But, Mr. Range must have a weakened Immune system for his control panel to go like that. That will be $328 and change! So, after the fact, I found a 15% off in home repair coupon. I asked if I could use it, seeing as I am a frequent buyer of the SEARS IN HOME REPAIR SERVICE,only to be told NO!!!! I guess the joke is on me for being a sucker for EVER BUYING ANYTHING IN SEARS. SO, BE WARNED AND BEWARE....SEARS has the WORST appliances for the most outrageous prices.

The history is unclear and the comments are just as confusing. How long did you have all these appliances?

For all to go wrong with similar controller board problems could lead one to believe there is a power problem in your area.

I disagree with the comments that more expensive is better. Many of the controlers, fans, thermostats are the same. There are just more bells and whistles.

Yes, the bells can stop ringing and the whistles not sound as sweet but the basics should still work.

Although some feel the extended warranty is a waste of money, there are also some that believe if there are weak parts, the electronics go bad the first year and motors go bad the second or third so maybe a 3 year warranty is a good idea, then drop it. Paying for 10 years of warranty is like buying a new frig every 10 years

Whopps, I reread nikalseyn and realized I had read it completely wrong. What *** buys new appliances every few years?

My mother has owned 2 refridgerators in over 30 years. You have to be some kind of *** to waste $ replacing things over and over again. Buy the best you can the first time, and don't replace it until it's %^$#ing dead. Guess what, by spedning $2k on an appliance instead of $1k, it lasts 10 times as long.

Therefore saving you over $9k in replacing it every year. *** nikalseyn, you must be a cheap, poor man. No wonder you don't have nice things.

Keep wasting your money replacing junk. Sucks to be you.

I have to agree with nikalseyn. How did you purchase 6 appliances with stainless steel for $5k?

My fridge alone was $1800 (Kenmore, top of the line, stanless) my stove was $1600 (top model, Gemini, stainless), and the dishwaher was about $1200 (Whirlpool top model, stainless) and they were all ON SALE. There's about $5k for just 3 appliances. And after 4-5 years, the stove needed its board replcaed, and guess what? I had the warrenty, and it got replaced for free.

Now they are all 7-8 yeras old and no (more) issues as of yesterday. What you did was buy the cheapst appliances you could get away with, not buy the extended warrenty, and expect them to wear like the more expensive models. That doesn't happen, and now you see that.

Next time, drop a few more bucks and get a better unit, and the warrenty.

(Also, store brand NEVER tastes as good as name brand. NEVER)

I apologize nikalseyn, but, yes I am trying to get more bees with honey. I bought all six in June 2009.

Delivered in either June or July 2009. Sears has already acknowledged their part in the debacle. Thank you for your sobering, miserable comment. My assumption is if u pay for a bell and or whistle, the expectation is that it will whistle it ring.

Is it wrong to expect the bells and whistles r work?? I think not!!!

I know you are trying to be amusing, but you haven't given us much info here. What models and when did you buy them?

Bottom line is to buy the cheapest model of an appliance, without all the bells and whistles, and when they break and you cannot fix them cheaply, you throw out and buy another cheap one.

I suspect you bought expensive models and now realize(I hope)that paying more does not mean they are any better or will last longer than the cheap models. Having an ice dispenser on the door of a fridge is just asking for trouble---bells and whistles??
