Sears in Washington, District Of Columbia - Not Honoring Web Errors-Baiting and Switching

I recently made a online purchase of a Top & Bottom Tool Chest that read 432 piece tool set included for $644.00 on Oct 13th and when it arrived no tools to be found. I now am told on the phone it was a web error and the tools were really never included and all Sears could do is knock off 50% of freight if I purchased the tools. Well it is not my fault they had a web error and now have forced me to do a charge back with American Express, and Sears can come and get the items that sit on my floor. I will never do business with Sears again....Sears needs a lesson on how to do business and honor mistakes.

I did a charge back and forced Sears to issue call tags to have the items picked up. SearsCares please do not post your lies about caring in the eye of the public.

I know along with many others you all fail to do your job when dealing with the consumer so there is no need to answer these post as if you care. You all lost all business from me, my family and friends and I will bad mouth Sears to the day I die.

Sears had a chance on the phone to stand behind what was advertised and failed to do so - Instead they told me I needed to buy the tools that were offered for free. Also SearsCares you whole Facebook response are about as bad as the post you placed here....just more lies.

Wal-Mart does - you find a item mis-labled on price and they will sell it for that price.

Sears in Chico, California - Unacceptable: Paid in full and still no delivery

Oct. 11th I placed on order online for a new washing machine. My card was charged immediately on 10/12. I chose the 31st of Oct. for delivery. It is now the 31st, 3 weeks from the purchase date, and I had not received a call to confirm delivery. Called Sears to confirm delivery and was told the following: Your appliance will not be delivered today, it is currently sitting in our warehouse, it was scheduled to be picked up by a contracted 3rd party for delivery but they never showed. I asked if he could contact them directly and was put on hold while he contacted the warehouse, when he returned I was told he was able to contact the delivering party and that they would pick up my appliance from the warehouse but could not tell me when it would be delivered but "probably" sometime this week. I arranged to stay home from work today because today was the agreed upon delivery date but apparently once sears has your money they could care less when your already purchased appliance gets delivered. Extremely dissatisfied with Sears. Will never spend another dime with Sears again.

*Update*

So I finally hear from SEARS three days after my scheduled delivery date has come and gone that my delivery was delayed...

I inquire as to a new delivery date and the response is THREE ADDITIONAL WEEKS from the original delivery date and over SIX WEEKS from the date I was charged for the order.

SEARS this is completely UNACCEPTABLE and I'm pretty brings up issues of legality (at least in California)

Also I have tried numerous times to contact the "SEARSCARES" escalation team but to no avail. It seems their only function is to attempt to save face by seeming to offer resolution via an automated message when their nefarious ways are brought to light by consumers who have been taken advantage of such as myself. This is a complete farce which it seems is just par for the course with SEARS.

I would advise against ordering from SEARS, their nonexistent customer service is a joke and I sincerely hope my words of warning help detour any of you from conducting business with this sorry company. Remember folks, all that glitters..

Thank you for your comment j wegas, I hope you see an expeditious resolution and I wish you better luck than I have had.

this is how they operate, i am tired and just about to give up on sears. i placed a 6 piece appliance order with sears on 10/15 and it all was available for delivery within 6-10 days but the earliest delivery option was 11/18. 4 week for in stock product....sad the last few weeks i have been in contact with customer service because i keep getting differing delivery information, now delayed again into december.

their customer service is like a broken record...name, phone, address, zip, name again, delivery address, ok now i found you, whats the issue, transfer repeat all again only to get the 'we will call you back' and they never do. there is no customer service in their customer service group.

about to cancel $4,400 order.

also charged my card with the order not upon delivery.

Sears in Edmonton, Alberta - Rude staff, laying blame on customer NO apologies for gift receipt they LOST, Refused to reissue

Not the first time ordering through the Sears catalogue, but definetely will be the last. Ordered by phone exercise equipment, and asked for gift receipt to be enclosed as it was a gift. Staff reassured me it would be included. Didn't worry about it as didn't have issues in the past with previous purchases. Arrive at Kingsway store to pick up item yesterday. Waited for catalogue rep to issue cash to an employee for a till, and while she acted as switchboard. Eventually once she finished catching up on gossip, we went through the process of paying for the item. When I asked for teh gift receipt, her reply was "you're out of luck, I can't give one to you unless its attached to your item". I replied, "it shouldn't be a problem and it should be on there as I specifically requested one" Went to the back, item's box was torn, crushed and in generally rough shape. I figured its exercise equipment.. as a gift, it won't look pretty, but as long as the equipment inside is sound and no missing pieces, I can live with that, though I wasn't particularly happy since it now looked like a returned item instead of a brand new item (did not voice this to the rep). Unfortuantly, no gift receipt was found on or around the box. We were planning to give gift away the next day. We suggested could we return item, and have it resold to us so we may have a gift receipt. Told flatly "No, I can't do that for you because I can't issue you a gift receipt. You can't return it." When we explined situation that item was a gift, rep replied we could call the Catalogue customer service to have them mail us one. Ok, If that was the way store policy was. When I asked for a receipt, the staff rep pointed at the mailing label on the box and said "thats your receipt, you don't get a paper one." Ok... I've always got one in the past, but okay, maybe that's changed too. I politely asked for the phone number, so we could follow through with her solution. Staff rep refused, replied "its the same number you called when you placed the order", and walked into the back of the warehouse. Offput by her behavior, we figured, ok, we'll just look up the number ourselves and get Sears to send us a gift receipt. Pretty simple request... right? WRONG! Called customer service. Brief apology from switchboard staff when I reported catalogue rep rude, but whatever, purpose of call was to get gift receipt mailed to me, and the world is right again. Put on hold a while after I got transferred (expected that). When I stated to customer service rep that the store rep informed me I could have gift receipt mailed to me, I was told "No we can't do that. The order should have went through as a ship it as a gift, not with your name on it as the customer". I replied I made it quite clear it was a gift, that I needed a gift receipt, and I was not informed it was a different process (your problem, not mine... its just a gift receipt whats the big deal? I typically don't tell people how to do their jobs when I order things online, why should I have to start now?). In the past, if I told them it was a gift, a gift receipt was issued. Regardless, could they just mail me a gift receipt because I needed to give the gift tomorrow, and I can always give the gift receipt to my friend when it came in. The rep then back tracked and stated "No, we can't do that because our system doesn't allow for it". Then why was it offered as a solution then by the store staff then? I'm not doing this for kicks, I have better things to do with my time. Her solution was if I wanted a gift receipt, I had to return the item (directly contraditing the store rep - she said I couldn't), reorder it, and have them resend it out. She would also require the name, address etc of the gift receipient. Not a viable solution since the gift was required the next day. A brief silence ensued after I reiterated I was planning to give the gift tomorrow. I wanted to pick it up and have it wrapped in time for a birthday gift. I didn't want my friend forced to pick up the item on their own time, and save them a trip... thus why the item was in the trunk of my car. I asked the customer service rep if she can just do the paper work on her end and just send me the gift receipt. In the past, it was pretty simple for any store rep to go to a till and print out a gift receipt. I was then told no, the system doesn't allow for it and the rep implied I should have known their catalogue policies - "we dont issue gift receipts for catalogue items". Really? Did that just change for the 5 minutes I was one the phone with the rep? There IS a GIFT option online, I clearly stated it was a GIFT and stated quite clearly I required a gift receipt when I placed the order, reassured by the rep at the time it would be an issue and one would be included... and now I get BLAMED because they lost the gift receipt, and are hiding behind "a policy change" that they don't issue gift receipts period, and I really should have known all of this when I placed the order despite noone informing me till NOW? AND they can't give me one despite the store rep saying I can get one mailed to me? Why the run around? Do I have a sign on me that says please make this process as convoluted as possible and contradict ourselves at every level? Apparently yes. I mildly replied that they should do a better job of clarifying the policies to customers when they place their orders so things get put into the system properly to begin with - let the customer know when they place the order, especially when the customer clearly states its a gift... this would avoid unpleasant situations like this one now. Her reply was a vague not all staff know the policies, and my only route was to return it, re-order it and have it re-sent and have my friend pick it up. It was like talking to a defensive brick wall. What part of the store told me I "can't return it and cannot get a gift receipt" do you not understand? What is the point of trying to get a gift receipt if my friend is forced to go out of their way to pick up the item themselves? If the store refuses and says to call you to mail out a gift receipt, and you're telling me no, I have to return everything and wait a few weeks for the time to be shipped back... we're all running around in a nice frustrating little circle. I'm NOT going to play this game. She then proceeded to ask me what I wanted to do, so I told her I'll decide later. From a simple request (AND I never mentioned the fact the box was heavily damaged), this has turned into a "its your fault for ordering a gift and asking for a gift receipt when we don't give them out". Well excuse me for resonabley assuming that would be communicated to me at the time of purcase, and assuming a simple request would be accomadated since gift receipts were given in the past for phone and online orders, and that if I was reassured a gift receipt would be included and not be a problem, common sense would dictate one would be included, and one would be reissued when it was "lost". I have spent thousands of dollars in the past at Sears, being happy with the customer service and care whether it be snow blowers, appliances, roofing, repairs or furnishings and out of principle, I cetainly will never again. Neither will my friends and family, many who are building or just moved into new homes and will be making big purchases. We can and will take our business elsewhere where we'll be treated fairly where black is black and white is white... and not as a ping pong ball to be bounce back and froth nilly ***. I put things into quotes because you can and should go back through your recorded phone conversations. Could the customer service agent have salvaged the situation? Yes. Did she? Apart from a scripted I understand how you are frustrated sentance, there was no apology: -for not informing me no gift certificates can be issued when I placed the order -for an error on their part since I was told not only when I placed the order, but from the store catalague staff I can get it reissued by calling In short No. She only ended up eascalating things by trying to blame the customer. Hence this rather long tirade posted online for the world to see. I apologize to readers as this seems like a minor request - it really is JUST a gift receipt. But its the principle. Customer service is not giving customers a run around and then blaming them. That's ludicrious and absolutely ridiculous. Its sad to see that customer service at the catalogue area go down the tubes. I'm sad to paint all the staff at Sears the same way, because I'm sure its only a few rotten apples in the bunch. Senior staff influence new staff. But you had your chance when I had to experience not one frustrating experience, but two for a simple request - only to be taken for a ride... at your staffs (mis)direction. Train your staff. Customer service counts believe it or not. Rot is insidious and it spreads. As does word of mouth.

After a few phone calls from the Escalation dept, asking for details on the purchase so they could look it up on their end (they couldn't look it up under my name or phone # despite the catalogue dept being able to). I eventually got fed up and forwarded them my confirmation email since I didn't have any other documentation (other than the mailing sticker on the exercise equipment box).

They essentially emailed me back the confirmation email saying I could use it as a receipt, but since it wasn't purchased "thru the right channels" on their end, can't do anything about mailing me a gift receipt. Hopefully my friend isn't missing any pieces from his gift, b/c I really rather not deal with them again.

Sears has poor warranty service

To Whom It May Concern: Just 10 months ago I purchased a washer/dryer with the Master Protection Plan on each. On 10-17-11, I called because my dryer would not work. It was dead...did nothing. The representative asked me to call back because their system was down and he could not give me an appointment. I called later the same day and got the same answer. I called the next day. I spoke to a gentleman who wanted to troubleshoot the issue over the phone to see if we could rule out some things. First he asked me to unplug my dryer and plug something else into the receptacle. I told him I'd have to have another dryer to do that. He seemed confused...not even knowing what he was saying. I told him the dryer would not do anything. It was probably the TIMER or the SWITCH. He gave me a repair date of 10-21-11 between 1-5pm. FOUR DAYS I waited all evening and at 4:45pm I receive an automated call that stated I would need to call back in and reschedule because the repairman could not make it. I called immediately and was told he would be there shortly. Around 5:40pm, he comes in makes a mess and tells me he has the wrong parts on his truck. He does not have a TIMER OR SWITCH to fit my dryer. He will be back in a WEEK on 10-28-11. SEVEN DAYS Well today…..AGAIN after waiting from 1 till after 4pm…… he comes in...makes a mess...... and says……….I HAVE THE WRONG PART…….… Now I have a repair date of November 1. FOUR DAYS Still my dryer does not work and I've made arrangements to be home and cleaned up behind this guy on 2 consecutive Fridays!!!!!!!!!!! I think this type of service in not satisfactory at all. It should not take WEEKS to put a timer in a dryer. I got similar service on a riding mower from you several years ago. I told myself I'd never make major purchases from Sears again. I should have stood by my original decision. I have been telling everyone who will listen this story…and it's kind of strange…but I'm hearing a lot of people tell me they've had the same experiences with Sears. At this point I do not plan to buy anything else from Sears…LESSON LEARNED!!!

I read the response by "SearsCares" and have to laugh. Sure, Sears really "cares".

Why? Because they mouth that expression over and over again. These are the same guys who say "your call is important to us" while making you go thru a menu, keeping you on hold for ages, or having a rep who does not speak or understand English try to "help" you. Bottom line: don't shop at Sears.

I have found Lowe's in my town to be the best for appliances, but that is my town.

You need to find a place that actually cares about their customers, in your own town. Just stay away from Sears.

Sears in Waco, Texas - Oasis HE Washer made by Whirlpool for Kenmore

My complaint is basically like others. Continue to get the F51 error code. Recall was issued by Sears years ago (around 2009) and letters supposedly went out to all customers who purchased this machine. We never received one. Our washer was considered covered under recall. However, in August 2009 they lowered the serial numbers and then our washer didn't qualify for the recall. They are now stating they have "upgraded" for this machine that fix the problem. However, since it's not considered a recall the consumer must pay for these "upgraded" parts. Sears and Whirlpool should step-up.

Sears in Glendale, California - Cancelled my appt but did not call me.

I always buy my appliances from Sears. Never had any repair problems before so was always a happy customer and I always trusted Sears. Have always recommend Sears to people because they have a good reputation for having great products and have been in business forever. But today I was deeply disappointed with their customer service and repair personnel. My appointment was between 1-5 pm. At 4:47pm I called them and they told me we needed to reschedule. I told them I did not understand why? They said the repair supervisor had called my house a couple hours earlier (they did not say a time)to make sure the parts had been delivered and he said their was no answer on my phone. This was a LIE. When I made the appointment it was because the parts had arrived. Why would I make an appointment without having the parts? I have been very patient up until now, this was to be the 3rd and final visit to repair my washing machine. I have a back injury and can't get around very well so my laundry is piled up so high and I have nothing else to wear. I was really looking forward to having clean clothes tomorrow. When I spoke to customer service they said there was nothing they could do and the next available appointment will be NOV. 8th. They asked if I wanted to schedule and I said no I need them to come out on the appointment I have for today. I did not cancel the appointment they did and lied by saying no one was home. Don't they record all their calls? They could check and see no one called me. So now I have been put at the end of all the appointments which is so wrong. Almost 2 more weeks until clean clothes. I started to cry and they put my call to escalated customer service. Which was no help and did not care that it was not me that cancelled it was sears WHY do I have to be punished. I would not even have known they were not coming at at had I not called to see what was going on and when they might be coming. I have already been waiting so long Since Sept 21st the day I scheduled my first appointment. Seriously this is how you treat your customers? This was your mistake not mine. Yet I am the one being inconvenienced. I can't lift my clothes to go to the laundry mat and I can't sit in their seats they have there either because of my injured back. I was home and have been home for months with my bad back. I have caller ID come look at it and you will see no one ever tried to call me.To put me at the end of the list was a real slap in the face. You should have kept your appointment even if it meant paying them over time. Or at least made room for me tomorrow. Seriously I can't even begin to tell you how emotional this has made me. This has stressed me out so bad, that it makes my back hurt worst because of the extra tension from being so upset. A little thing like washing your clothes can mean so much to someone. So what do I get out of all of this, Lies from sears repairman and More back pain. I can't believe they would Lie. He probably wanted to go home early. So they think it doesn't affect anybody when they do such things. Well think again

Thank God Today SEARS fixed my Washing machine. I have to admit nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes.

But at least they made good on their promises to take care of me. All big companies have their problems but SEARS stepped up and had the right people call me and treat me as I had originally expected to be treated from them. My faith in Sears is restored:) I just pray I never have something break on me again when I have an injury. Because you tend to be more emotional when companies make mistakes.

I did have to complain to be heard. But I want to Thank Sears for listening.

Sears in Colorado Springs, Colorado - Front loading washer...low water

Sears has dumbed-down their quaitiy. Unlike days of old, one could count on Kenmore for quality and longevity, that is not the case today. Our $1000 plus washer bit the dust, despite our care for it. Heard many complaints about cpu board and other things online regarding low water front loaders. Sears really comes up short for product quality across the board. For one hundred years, anyone could rely on Sears to sell a household a reliable product. NOT ANYMORE. I NO LONGER TRUST YOU, SEARS TO GIVE ME A QUALITY PRODUCT. Sears will surely kill itself corporately, if it doesn't get it's act back together!

Sears in Los Angeles, California - No Customer Service

Subject: Offer for Master Protection Agreement Thank you for sending your offer for an extended warranty, this has refreshed my memory about the great time I had with the Sear Manager at the Main St. location in Corona CA. She was a thrill to see just how far Sear has come with customer service. I visited this location on a Monday in around the first part of the month in October to purchase a dryer, mine was starting to make some noise, could have replaced the idler and rollers that the drum rides on…… I am a mechanical engineer. I found the dryer needed and purchased it but needed to wait several days to pick the unit up due to they do not have any on location. I did inquire about the warranty; it was for a year as you know. I declined the extended due to the quality of your products. I got the dryer home, out of the box and leveled with the gas hooked up. No heat, I mean with the dryer running, no heat. Just a reminder, the old one had heat, that is the electrical switches and gas valve was working, along with the GAS LINE….. I will get to this soon. I called the store in which I purchased the dryer from, spoke with the manager, she first asked about if I had purchased the extended warranty. (The paint on the dryer is still drying….) I have not had this dryer in my possession for more than 1 hour. Your store manager asked " Did you install a NEW GAS LINE" No kidding. I questioned her on the "New Gas Line". I ended up returning the dryer the next day, A very nice older man help with the return and advised me she had moved onto another store or up the latter to higher management. My final question to her was can you deliver a working dryer to my house, I have spent the time and waited several days for one that didn't work. She again referenced the extended warranty. I went to Lowe's that evening, got a dryer, brought it home, hooked it up…… And it WORKED, with the old gas line. Ex Sears Customer

To PC270870,

I apologize for the negative experience that you've recently had with the Sears store in Corona, CA. Being that the dryer was delivered to you only days before, the question of an "extended warranty" was completely irrelevant to your situation and I can completely understand why this would frustrate you. That the added and unnecessary frustration was caused by a store manager is even more troubling. I realize that you have already replaced the dryer thru one of our competitors and I don't blame you. We would appreciate the opportunity to speak to you further about your experience and to regain your trust in Sears. My name is James and I am part of the Social Media Support Escalations team at Sears and we appreciate your business with Sears. At your convenience, please contact our office at smsupport@searshc.com. Please send us an email providing a contact phone number and the phone number dryer is listed under (if different than the contact phone number) and we will call you directly. Also, in your email please provide the following code (PC270870) for reference to your issue and we do look forward to talking to you soon.

Thank you,

James H.

Sears in London, Ontario - Rude Customer Service Clerk

I have had a sears store card for over 40 years. I ordered from website, the only way to order item, paid for item on card. Returned item for exchange. The price difference was less than $10.00 and was told it would be credit on my card. Don't order much so just wanted cash back. I objected to credit on card WAS TOLD NO BIG DEAL. I lost it then. I will not put up with rudeness from anyone. What happened to courtesy? Will not purchase again if this is their return policy. In order to get credit, I have to purchase something.
