Sears review in Surrey, British Columbia: POOR ONLINE ORDERING & CUST. SVC
ATTENTION POTENTIAL SEARS CUSTOMER: Sears has the worst online ordering system I've ever come across, the website WOULD NOT give you an estimated shipping date until you submit your order. I submitted my order and found out that it will take a whole month to ship my item. When i phoned to cancel my order, they will not allow the cancellation. They said they will ship it out and I can reject it but will be responsible for the shipping cost. THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO, too bad for me!!!!! EXTREMELY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, DO NOT BUY FROM SEARS. YOU WILL REGRET!

Sears Craftsman Lawn Mower a Fake!
We are in our 50's have never considered buying anything but Craftsman. We purchased a Craftsman lawn mower only to find it's a piece of junk with the timing skipping consistently. We learned that Craftsman actually didn't make the product but subbed it to Club Cadet who subbed it MTD. If I had wanted a MTD mower I would've went to Walmart and bought one for $500.00 instead of $3000 for a Craftsman. And their customer service - located in overseas - can't speak English much less provide any solutions. Craftsman quality is clearly a thing of the past - so sad - they use to make great products. Don't buy these over-priced lawn mowers - save your money and a buy a cheap-o - it's the same thing.

Sears review in Miami, Florida: Waiting for over a month to have my dishwasher fixed
To Sears CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT How long does it take to get service from your service department? There is no truth to your advertisement, for it really takes a long time. Case in point: the ordeal that has become to service my dishwasher. Let establish first the time line On May 16th we place the first call and got an appointment for May 21th. The technician came and left, we were home but he reported that "no one was home". Did he come to my door??? We called back on the 23th to re-schedule; got an appointment for the 26th. But nobody came because there were no available technicians on that day. We called back on the 27th and got an appointment for June 4th. The technician came but did not finish the job, he needed a part, and had to re-schedule for June 8th; on that day he could not finish his route because he was late receiving the part he needed. We called on June 11th to acknowledge receiving the part and an appointment was made for June 14th. On that date the technician passed by to say he was coming back on the 17th to replace the part. But nobody came. When we called they told us that we were not scheduled for an appointment on the 17th and that the next available appointment would be on the 21st. Among the many excuses I have heard over the phone is "a dishwasher is not emergency equipment". But I beg to differ: in a household with 5 adults, 4 kids and a dog, dishwashing is a full time job. Maybe you have good intentions, but the road to *** is paved with them. The department in charge of providing service is not well managed and promises get broken left and right. This I learned by checking on the internet; there I found the complaints from other consumers about shoddy merchandise. A product sold by Sears was well made; the service was seldom needed when the item was new. But the new trend of having all products made in China, or any place where cheap labor is available, with parts made anywhere else, produces gleaming sub-standard products that break often. Then you sub-contract the service which creates a communication chain that often gets broken.
Sears review in Albuquerque, New Mexico: No carpet to test vacuum cleaner in store.
I couldn't try out my new vacuum cleaner until I assembled it, which took about 40 mins. I find it hard to push even when the rotating brush is set to "high",and my carpet at home has a relatively short nap. There was no way to test the floor model in the store because there is no demonstration carpet in the vacuum cleaner department. I hope the maid, who comes every other week, won't refuse to use it. If she does, you'll be hearing from me. The vacuum I bought is the Kenmore Intuition which was rated as a "Best Buy" by consumer Reports.
Sears appliance repair service is terrible
I am a sears service technician and I want to let the world know how horrible this company is. Each day we get 12-15 calls to complete while driving sometimes 200 miles. Sears knows that some customers will not get service, yet they continue to overwork their technicians which results in poor morale and poor customer service. No one wants to work for this company and they cannot find technicians who will work for them (Unit 8107) in Houston. This company is the pits and I advise all customers never to use them. They use pressure tactics to pressure their technicians to sell products which are 4 times more expensive than what can be purchased at the local Wal-mart, and they expect us to take all kinds of heat from the customer who is upset before we arrive because we have rescheduled them 3 times, 2 weeks to order part, and because we could not meet the 8-12 time frame along with the other 8 customers that were promised 8-12. I would never use this company they are overpriced and the technicians are very unhappy about working for this company.

Sears review in Bridgeport, Connecticut: Layaway initial date considered purchase date so price protections and current sales do not apply
I recently went on sears.com to purchase a led 46" television. I found the model I wanted, as I was checking out online, I noticed the layaway option. Because I was buying this as a father's day gift this was a perfect solution I could guarantee he item was available and would not have to hide it at home. I made the layaway contract initial payment ($306.28) on may 12th 2011. I made my second payment on may 28th, when my third payment became due I saw that sears had a sale on the model I had on layaway. While the price was still the same there was a special father's day bundle (a blu-ray player and 4 pair glasses included). since I was buying the TV anyway I immediately went on line and paid the balance ($919.05). I received two emails immediately from sears.com, one a receipt for the final payment and, one telling me my purchase was available for pick-up in store. when I arrived for pick I was told that they could not find the television and I would have to come back on Tuesday (this was Saturday). Finally one associate said he would go in the back and try to locate it, after about 45 minutes he found it. I Was then informed that I was not eligible for the bundle because I used layaway it did not matter that I paid the exact same price as the bundle sale. I left having remembered why I have avoided using sears for the past 20 years. It is the same old bait and switch policies that I thought they stopped using years ago. now to ad insult to injury, the next day I saw the new sears sale the price of the television that I bought on Saturday was now $160.00 less. I went on line and checked out the sears price protection policy. I checked on all the exclusions (which did not list layaway) to the policy. the policy states they will refund the difference for any purchase within 14 days, fine since I a receipt showing my purchase was June 11. and this is June 14. so I went on line and filled out the price protection form. However I was informed that they could not issue a refund because as it was a layaway the initial setup date (may 12) was the date of purchase even though my "purchase" was in their store for 4 weeks awaiting final payment. Again more sears loopholes. they will use any reason not to give you what is advertised. Now I can return the television an hope I can find it somewhere else,or I can just keep it having learned yet again that sears is really a one time shopping experience. Because once you deal with their non existent customer service and fluid guarantee policies you really would rather shop any where else. because honestly no amount of savings is worth the sales associates that can't be bothered, the time it takes to finally pick up your merchandise and online customer service policy that seems to consist of finding new (or maybe old) ways to deny any compensation due. I figured out that buying this TV on layaway cost me about $500.00 more ($349.00 dvd/glasses bundle $160.00 price protection refund) than every one else who bought this item in store. So I will never use sears.com layaway again for any future purchases of electronics. shame on you sears.
