Sears in Warwick, New York - Sales Tax on Clothes in New Jersey

I placed an order at sears.com for pajamas for my husband. I was charged sales tax. There is no sales tax on clothing (including pajamas) in New Jersey. I wanted to complete the transaction online but had to call the customer service number to inquire about the sales tax. They said they would adjust it. Then I looked at my bank account today and yep, I was charged sales tax. I again called Sears customer service center and spoke to a manager was said - "they charge everyone sales tax". What happened to no sales tax on clothes in New Jersey????

Stephanie, all you have to do is place an order at sears.com with a New Jersey billing and shipping address. After you are charged sales tax you can fix your website.

Then you can inform your customer service reps who place orders over the phone that certain states in the U.S. do not pay sales tax on clothes, it can't be too difficult for them to learn that.

Dear Anonymous,

I understand that if your state does not charge for sales tax then you shouldn’t have to pay sales tax. I would like one of our executive case managers to speak to you and assist in this matter. At your convenience, please contact our office via email at smsupport@searshc.com so you don’t have to continue to be frustrated by this. In the email, please provide a contact phone number and the phone number your pajamas were purchased under (if different than the contact phone number) and we will call you directly. Also, in your email, please provide the screen name Anonymous / 1242012 for reference to your issue, and we do look forward to talking to you soon.

Thank you,

Sears in Coppell, Texas - Bad Salesperson, horrible delivery and customer support

I went to Sears because of Sears Price Match Plus Policy at Chandler Fashion Mall, AZ. I had an ad from Fry's Electronics for a Samsung RF 267AEPN. The listed price in Frys was $1450+Free Delivery. Sears price was $2150+$70 shipping. According to Sears policy the price difference was $700 and I should have got $70 as price match plus difference, but they gave me $59. First, the salesperson did not know there was a price match policy, he did not know Sears had 6 months zero percent financing (Each time he had to go to check with his supervisor, it took me 1 hour to buy a fridge). Now he comes back from checking with his supervisor and says that he can do price match but still charge $70 for delivery. Tell me is there any advantage of buying from Fry's or from Sears if the price is the same. He then says (this is the misrepresentation), that he can give me a $100 card (he shows me a $10 card valid for a week in store) and says it rang for $100 with his other customers. He promises he will give me that. I agree for the sale. Then I ask about financing, I apply for the financing and the sale is done. He then says he cannot give me the $100 card. This is Cheating. I will never ever come back to Sears, you have real bad salespeople. He they shows no interest in listening to me and goes to other customer. I went to the customer service desk, there is no one seating there, no one in site. I mean this is a terrible way to treat people. The fridge got delivered to me, it had 3 dents on the left door. I called the customer service and told her to fix them. She said she cannot fix them but can give me 10% discount on my next purchase, and a expanded warranty on my fridge. This doesn't make sense, why should I spend more money in your store when I get less then what I paid for. I opened the fridge and its dirty. All dusts has settled in it.

Stephanie, Sorry doesn't help is actions that shows the customer that you care. Stop using mechanical words like sincerely apologize,I can see how this would be frustrating.

Is honesty that counts.

People in your company are train to be mechanical and not themselves.Treat customer how you will like to be treated. By the way please tell your top executive consecutive to don't forget about their customers good faith of purchasing their good to boost the economy and their fat checks and to also remember their customer service rep that are taking advantage and don't get paid for their commitment to the company!

I have to say sears have good honest working people its sears policy that sucks and are deceiving. believe me they blame their good employees for all their mistakes.

Sears ONLY care about profit not customer satisfaction.

learn the tricks be careful before you sign anything. You as customers beware and think before you attack a customer service rep they get treated like just the same and are under paid!

Why did you agree to buy it at Sears when Fry's was $700 lower? Then they're selling you a floor model?? "the fridge was dirty." Then you complained of their service?

Sorry, something's wrong here.

Was Fry's a limited time ad? Limited quantity?

Sears delivery service = horrible customer service

I purchased two appliances that were scheduled to be delivered on the 20th. I received a confirmation phone call the night prior and got everything ready for the next days delivery. Three minutes prior to the "window of time" they gave me, I got a phone call stating due to weather there was to be no shipment made to my home today, they would call back to reschedule. Big problem because I am now without a working range, therefore, no means to cook! The next day I spoke with someone who informed me that one of my appliances had made it to the wharehouse but could not be delivered until the 26th, but that I was more than welcome to pick it up myself! Now there is no expected delivery date for my other item that was initially delayed due to "weather"! After multiple 30 minute phone calls I was still dissatisfied. I understand that problems arise, however, I do not care to be lied to! This is not the first time that I have purchased appliances from Sears, however, it WILL be the LAST!

What probuly happened is what always happens this time of year with Lawn and garden calls,most of the lawn techs are layed off and the one they have come in maybe 3 times a week runs a daily route with 15 calls,overloaded,he could not get to every customer and you are one of those that got rerouted.Its a never ending struggle to get to every customer the way the techs are routed.

Mail Order On Line Sears

Ordered weight lifting equipment on online from Sears on 1/8/12 to be shipped to my home. Called 1/20/12. Equip had not been shipped nor could they tell me when it would be shipped. I waited on line 20 minutes to talk to a manager. A manager never came on line. They did say they could not refund my payment. I don't know about the rest of Sears but their home delivery sucks. I will not be using their service anytime soon. When you are wronged they make no attempt to correct the situation. Sears sucks

Sears Appliance Repair= Back ordered part for 6 weeks.

How can a part to repair a Kenmore front loading washing machine be on back order for at least six weeks? Their resolution center offered $25.00/week up to $100 (4 weeks!) to compensate for inconvenience. Hardly compensates for laundrymat trips several ties a week. Give me the money for the repair cost since it is under a service agreement ($1,000) and let me buy a new machine with delivery in two days. I can assure Sear's that I will never purchase another Kenmore appliance if this is what I can expect for future repair down time for my appliance.

The plumber showed up and wanted an additional $248. AVOID SEARS!!!

Coldwater here again. After I posted my last comment the tech called and said they would install first thing in the morning (8:30AM).

He said the 269.99 installation charge may have to increase if new couplings are needed and a drain pan. He said some installation pkgs run 395 to include same. He said it has to be able to pass inspection. I told him the Sears tank that I have had without any problem for 12 years passed inspection in 2002, and codes here were the same as far as I know, and as far as on-line rep knew since he said he checked Ohio code when I ordered it.

2 Couplings cost about an additional 35.00 each, the tech said. The new pan then, it seems, if needed would cost 50.00 since when they are included in 395 install pkg, but I guess I was quoted and charged the more optimistic charge which sometimes is sufficient. By the way, the fine print on receipt does say there could be additional installation charges. So it is, what it is, or what it will be, I guess.

The guy who called from the truck was polite and said, would it be ok if we install your heater first thing tomorrow. I suppose I could have insisted they install it tonight, but I think I did the right and considerate thing. And after probably much needed rest, I may well get a better installation. I'll post the installation charge tomorrow after installation.

Hopefully it will not be more than I already paid, but it seems it could be 120 more. Any more than that, and I'll be ready to complain, for what it's worth, for sure.

Sears delivery and installation warning

I ordered a washer/dryer with all necessary parts and full installation. On the day of delivery they took my old washer and dryer (which still worked) and left without installing the new washer and dryer because they didn't have all the parts. The service department was extremely unhelpful when I contacted them about this. Sears should have called me up to delay delivery instead of leaving me stranded without a washer/dryer. Sears doesn't have their own delivery/installation people. They contract out to anyone. So the delivery people will just want to get out of their as fast as possible. I advise people to not purchase from Sears.

The cost of everything today the way it is,Sears should just sell the product and leave the installation needs to the customer.Every plumber out there offers installation service for applainces.Let the customer hire someone for installation,SEARS YOU WILL STILL SELL AND HAVE A LOT LESS HEAD ACHES.
