Sears in Tampa, Florida - Delivery
Purchased a gas grill. Scheduled for delivery Friday the 23rd of December. Turns out no one is coming to deliver today. Would not know this if I had not called delivery # and found out that the grill was never picked up from the store. No one called to let me know that delivery was not being made. Called the store in Brandon FL. Told I could talk to the manager but he will have to call me today sometime. Cancelled order. I was given no other option from anyone. If an item can't be delivered Sears throws you out of the cue and leaves it up to you to figure it out. Oh....you have to pay $69 for the delivery. Will never do business with Sears again.
Couldn't believe Sears
On December 21, 2011 I went to the Sears store # 2389 to speak to the store manager, John Watson, in regards to an overcharge on a purchase. John was GREAT, took care of my issue without a long explanation. Then came the problem! I was still in the store (half an hour later) looking at treadmills when John was leaving the store. He made a comment about still being there and I replied yes, I was looking at treadmills. He smiled and promptly sent a stocker over to me. She asked if she could assist me and I replied I needed information in regards to the treadmill I was standing in front. She informed me that she would get a "salesperson". A moment alter an elderly lady from the cash wrap came over, I asked her what the differences were between the C900 and C900 pro Nautilus treadmills were, pointing at the C900 across the isle. She told me that that one, the C900 was "Sole" brand. I explained to her that it was Nautilus and she began to argue with me. At that point, I asked her if she was "salesman" and she replied no. I told to her to "forget it, I would research it myself." At which point she left, with me trailing her back towards her cash wrap. She stopped by a woman, I am presuming was a supervisor and told her to "not wait on the guy in the black jacket, he was an ***." Is shock I went up to the supervisor and told her "I was the *** and I would leave now without my $1000.00 purchase." I ordered the treadmill today from Nautilus!!! I could not believe the customer service from this woman and Sears used to be the standard that customer service was strived to be; not any more. Good bye Sears!! I will not be back.
Sears in Silverdale, Washington - Appliance support and customer service awful
In the past two weeks I have purchased two dishwashers from sears at the tune of $1100 each time and they won't do an exchange yet required me to pay again for the new one and wait for a refund on the first one. The first one actually worked for almost a week before the main control panel went bad on it and the second one of a different brand won't drain from the first cycle. The service reps keep telling me they appreciate my business as they also inform me that they are sorry but for $2200 I'm still stuck spending the entire christmas season with no dishwasher for my large family. Their service department can't come take a look at it for a week which is bad enough but then they will have to order the new pump it needs and wait for that to come in and then reschedule service because they can't order it ahead of time. The entire month of december with no dishwashing capabilities is bad enough but then to have sears take my money twice for the purchase of a new machine and then still no working dishwasher. When I asked to speak to a supervisor at the service center I got the normal response when dealing with sears and they put me on hold again for half an hour then hang up on me. That has also happened many times. Overall the only reasonably good experience has been that they were friendly enough while swiping my card to take my money but every moment after that has been horrible.
Sears Delivery Service Failure
Considering ordering from Sears for CHRISTMAS TIME ? Here's my story : On December 7, I ordered by phone a TV (which was intended to be a X-mas gift to my father ). I insisted to know if this item would arrive at my home on time for X-mas. The rep at the phone told me I was going to receive it FOR SURE on December 17, and that I souldn't worry. And guess what ? the item didn't arrive on the 17. I called back on the 18, to be told that because of X-mas, they had to many demands and because of that there was some delay... The rep was absolutely positive : I souldn't worry : my item would arrive FOR SURE by the next day (December 19). It didn't... I phoned them again to know exactly what was going on, where my item was. Amazingly, they told that my item has NOT been sent yet and... was not in stock either ! They were short of it and, apparently, not even produced anymore ! They couldn't tell me at all if I would receive one and, if it was the case, when it would occur. You want the best part : They could not give me my money back because, in order to do so, I must refuse the item when it will be delivered at my front door ! It took me two complete afternoons on the phone to sort the situation out (with careless teenage reps) and to get my money back !!!

Sears Rip off
I ordered the Bosch Tassimo T65 brewer at the Sears Store for $139.99 on the 10th of December as the product was out of stock and picked it on the 16th. Walmart is selling the same for $118 and Canadian Tire for $99.99. I took the flyer to the Sears store and requested a price match. The customer service staff at the counter refused. The supervisor, a lady by name of Lisa was dismissive and rude and when I asked for five minutes of her time said "you have one minute". Sears is really ripping of customers; not to mention disrespectful of them.
SEARS will rip you off!
Over 2 weeks ago I bought a Christmas present for my husband online with Sears, this Christmas is important since he will be deployed next year. I tried to buy the item 1st through Kmart, part of Sears, my order went through but was out of stock, I was still charged and its still pending. I ordered it with Sears, I still have not received it! I now have paid twice for an item they have not sent and will not refund my money on. I can not afford another. Avoid SEARS! I have contacted them numerous times with no response or the run around. Even on facebook :( Very sad if you have used them for a special event!
Sears in Toronto, Ontario - Refrigerator repair with dishonest and careless repairman
Sears Canada sent someone to repair our KitchenAid fridge/freezer. we got a quote at the first visit but 2 weeks later, the repairman called us before he arrived to say that it was going to cost $1200-1500 (quote was $800 parts & labour). We called Sears to confirm the original quote then made the repairman sit thru the call again so that it was indisputable. He then scratched our cork floor & bent the freezer drawer rail during his repair so we're left with a big scar on the floor and derailed freezer drawer every time we open it!
Never again from Sears.com!
I ordered a TV from Sears.com over one of their weekend sales. My order confirmation said the TV would arrive on 12/12. A few days later I receive an email from Sears.com stating that my order has shipped and provided me with a tracking number. In order to see when the TV would arrive so I could make arrangement to be home, I realized the tracking number was incorrect. I waited a few days to make sure the details of my shipment would not appear. I called the carrier (freight shipping) and the lady confirmed that they WERE NOT shipping this item. I called Sears.com and the lady on the phone assured me that the freight company was shipping this item. Another week and I am still searching for any tracking information. I chat online with a customer service rep who finally admits that they shipped the item, but they are unsure who they are shipping it with. They cannot provide any of the details as they are unsure. The guy puts in an order for me to receive the information within 3 to 5 days. Still hadn't heard anything so I contacted another customer service rep who basically lied and kept telling me that shipping information was not available until the estimated arrival date passed. Complete BS. The lies and form letters with mismatched fonts keeps coming in as responses. I will NEVER order from Sears.com or Sears again. I keep getting the same form letters back as a response and they have no respect for my time that I have had to spend to see where my item was and when it would arrive.

SEARS: Worst ever
My husband called our local sears store to find a digital photo frame for my mom on christmas. They immediately transfered him to a call center in Alabama (mind you we live in Michigan). We were guaranteed that the frame was in stock at the warehouse and could be shipped to our store. So we went ahead and ordered it. That was on the 16th of this month and we were promised that it would arrive between the 22nd-26th. On the 17th they took the money from my account. I went online to check the status of our order, and it said that as of December 18th, it was cancelled. No call, no e-mail, no word what so ever on this cancellation. But they still took our money. I called the sears customer service line and I asked why my order was cancelled and they said it was because they didn't have anymore in stock. The woman I spoke to was very rude and when I asked about getting my money back, she said that it would take about 3-5 business days to process the refund. Now I have to spend what little money I have left to find my mom something else, 4 days before christmas. I'm beyond pissed. I'm literally on the *** of tears because I have no idea what I'm going to do for her gift now. So please take my advice and don't EVER shop at sears. I would hate to hear about someone else getting robbed like we did.
Sears Customer service sucks. Tools do too!
Greetings tractor and tool guys. I have placed my last transaction with Sears, PERIOD, and here is why. Several years ago my wife gave me a gift card and we still had a remaining balance on it. On Saturday I tried shopping their online tool site for some wrenches with their usual Christmas discounts. I selected a set of Dog Bone wrenches, a set of speed head box end wrenches and a seven piece set of ratcheting box end wrenches. They were nicely discounted (I thought) and the amount qualified for free shipping. I then found that the gift card would no longer be honored. I wish I had quit right there instead of paying with my VISA. I thought I really wanted those wrenches! Within minutes I received an email from "Imran Jooma" stating that the dog bone and speed end wrenches sets had been "canceled" but the ratcheting end wrenches would be shipped, even though my order no longer qualified for free shipping. Okay then, says I in the next few minutes and for several hours thereafter, to Imran, and then "Geena (pgiri0)," and some other yayhoo named "Hobbs G. (mashraf)" CANCEL THE REMAINING 1/3 of my order. I DON'T WANT THE SINGLE ITEM that YOU didn't CANCEL!" It became quite obvious that Imran, pgiri, and mashraf have only a passing acquaintance with American English as their second or third language. It was also painfully obvious that they wouldn't/couldn't cancel the last item. In itself, Sears trying to improve their profit returns by moving their help center overseas would be enough for me to quit patronizing them. The "Sears" wrenches arrived today. I will give them credit for having timely shipping. The "Craftsman" ratcheting end wrenches I received are dadgummed communist chinese made GEARWRENCH brand. A quick search on Amazon for comparable chinese garbage wrenches produced several other sets, one of them a ten piece set, that are less money and shipped free. I will be returning these faux wrenches the next time I am close to one of the Sears outlets that are twenty to thirty miles from home. As I said, I am done with these globalist shysters, or will be as soon as I return their chinese garbage wrenches and get my credit returned. If I want third rate imported junk, I'll go to Harbor Freight, talk to an American and pay an appropriately cheaper price. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and avoid Sears. Best Wishes
