i have had a sears regular blue card since 1973.well they send me a sears gold master card and showed a low interest rate for balance transfers.i utilized this thinking i would save some monies,ye right.it worked out ok for about 6 months.i get payed on the 1st.of each month and the bill was due on the 30th.i tryed to chage the due date to no avail.i was late 1 day on a payment,they charged me 30.00,which later was reversed.my interest rate jumped to a whopping 29.99% from about 14%.the fertilizer hit the ventilator and i called and talked to someone to no avail and requested to talk to the supervisor.she said that beings i was late on the payment is why the card had jumped up in rate,i told her the charge was reversed and she said it did not matter.i ashed to talk to her supervisor and she said they do not talk to customers.i told her i would no longer need their card,i was going to pay it off some way,and cut the card up icontacted a credit union,got a secured loan at 7% fixed rate and cut the card up.beware of this card.

I have had a sears mc for 2 yrs. paid on time, i thought i was a good customer, but the other day I received a letter stating they was closing my account for inactivity.

In which this has hurt my credit. Only reasons I did not use the mc that much is that Sears IS NOT the store I remembered as a child.

I will not buy anything from sears or kmart again. I hope sears go under

I think Citibank has the Sears credit cards.

You complaint is a common one. I've heard to many stories where people have been less than 24 hours late and they're getting penalized twice with a fee and an increased APR.

Treatment like this gives many an incentive to go through a settlement process or even bankruptcy. How does increasing a person's APR give one incentive to speed up payments I don't know.

I'm pretty sure Citibank is calling the shots on this. I don't even think the stores or Sears could do anything unless you return your purchases with another penalty or restocking fee.

I am so sorry I have to say this once again. I use to be a solid Sears customer that would go toe to toe with anyone who tried to get me to believe that Sears was a junk store.

Then 1 fathful day I walked into a Sears store in Traverse City MI and paid CASH for a brand new snow thrower, a set of 4 brand new directional snow tires at a tune of over 700 bucks in CASH as well as a 110 welder also paid for in CASH... The snow thrower fell apart lierally after the 7th use. This thing was so new that Sears had not started mass producing replacement parts yet for it. Well it took an act of the Michigan Government to get Sears to uphold their end of the bargain.

It wasnt like I wasnt trying to cooperate.

Even though I am paralized in my right leg and had no other way to clear my drive, I still waited almost 2 months for anyone to do anything for me. So, I am sorry to burst any bubbles but Sears is not the store you once knew as a child & that is not a good thing at all.

Sears rebates not honored

Sears does not honor rebates for appliances. I purchased a dishwasher and a refrigerator totaling $2,100 on the same day. Both had rebates associated with them, but because I used zero financing on the purchase of the refrigerator, they would not honor the installation rebate of $99.00 for the dishwasher. When I called about the "processing" status of the rebate 60 days after submitting it, I was to it did not qualify for the rebate because of the zero financing for both products even thought I paid for the dishwasher in 30 days. I will never shop Sears again.

What did Sears famous Blue Crew tell you when you bought the appliances? They don't sound very helpfull when they don't even tell you it's 0 financing OR rebate before you buy.

Sears Sells Unreliable Vacuum Cleaners

We bought a vacuum cleaner and paid for a 5 year warranty from Sears. We have owned the machine for 3 years. We have had to take it in to be repaired 4 times. The last time, we had to haul the machine 50 miles round trip because the local service center closed, the local store wouldn't accept it and didn't tell us there were any closer places we could drop it off. They refused to repair by mail. When we went to pick up the vacuum the 4th time, we heard an employee say he had to go to the store 2 miles from our home to get something. Why couldn't he have dropped off our machine so we wouldn't have to drive? Don't bother to contact the home office in Chicago. The staff there has no power to obtain satisfaction or respond in any meaningful way. All they do is apologize and say "thank you for shopping Sears".

Sears is no longer around. It is all K-mart now.

Corporate center phone number is 847-286-2500. That is the corporate office number.

Corp. complaint center is 1-800-795-5030

The Ceo is Eddie Lampert. He lives in Florida somewhere.

Good luck

Fed up with Sears at Spring Hill Mall

We are purchasing a new home and are in need of a new fridge, dishwasher & 32" HDTV. There was no other people in the appliance area. We were there for 10 min. looking and not one salesperson approached us. We noticed at least 3 sales people who were just hanging around and we totally ignored. This is not the first time that this has happen at this store. I'm fed up with Sears and this store blew it because I went to the Best Buy across the street and purchased all 3 items a total of $3200. Sears loss.

I had the very same experience two days ago at this Sears store even though the store wasn't busy at all. When I broke up a conversation between two salespeople for help, the one I got didn't know a damned thing about the product I wanted to purchase (I did because I researched it on the web).

After he fumbled through the purchase transaction he then had the nerve to ask me to go to the Sears feedback website and rate him a 10 out of 10 for the service (none) he provided.

Really surprised this store is still in business. Had the same experience in the TV/Stereo department that day - same store so I went across the street to Bust Buy after further frustration.

Sears in Spring Valley, California - Inconsistent Information on Warranty & Bad Service

Our 2-year old Kenmore refrigerator stopped working (as in, it didn't keep anything cold). It took multiple phone calls and 5-weeks to get Sear's to fix it - and this is after we took 4 days off of work and spent almost $600 with another repair company all because there customer service agents gave us wrong information almost every time we called. My husband noticed that our 2-year old Kenmore refrigerator was no longer cold, so I called Sear's to have someone come out and take a look. I was informed that our warranty had expired after a year, and that a service call would be $70 plus and we would be responsible for all parts and service. I was also informed that the $70 service call would not be applied to parts. And, it would be a week before they would come out. It didn't make sense to wait a week, or to pay Sear's $70 when another company would come out and look at the fridge for $30 and apply that to any parts and repairs. The company I called came out the next day, and looked that the fridge. They told us the the problem was one of two things - either our relay or the motor. They ordered the parts for the relay and came back the next day. It turns out it was the motor, which sot $1,500 to repair. Since the fridge only cost us $700, making the $1,500 in repairs didn't make any sense. It also didn't make any sense that the motor would run out after only 2 years. The repair guys says that motors are usually covered for 5 years, and that I should try calling Sear's again. So I called Sear's, and it turns out that we DID have warranty coverage after all. The gentleman I spoke to seemed very nice, and worked with me for about an hour to get this "resolved". He told me that I would not pay more than $120 out of pocket, no matter what was wrong. The money I had already spent with the other company was lost, but at least there was a chance that we could still get the refrigerator fixed. I felt much better after my call with him, and thought that things would get better. I was upset that we had to wait a week - they only had 1 person servicing our area, and that is the earliest he could get out. I was told that the service repair guy would be there between 8:30am-12:30pm, and he would have the parts with him. The repair guy that came out was very nice, but he didn't show up until after 4:30pm. He ordered the parts and made an appointment for a week later. (Just to clarify, we are now in week #3 with no refrigerator....) The parts arrived, but the repair man did not. I was told that he would be there between 8:30am-12:30pm, and that he would call 30 minutes before arriving. At 12:30pm I called their Customer Service line and was told that there was no appointment on record. After being on the phone with them for 30 minutes, they said that it was my fault becuase I did not call and make an appointment. I said that I didn't know that I needed to - the repair man had stood in my kitchen, on my phone, and made me an appointment. They said that they would reschedule that appointment and he would be out later that day. When he finally showed up - just after 3pm, he notified me that they had delivered the wrong part. He called to have the new part ordered, and said to call him when it arrived. When the parts arrived, I called to make my appointment. The Customer Service person I spoke to said that they had no record of me being a refrigerator from Sear's. I told her not only had we bought the refrigerator, but the Service Man had been out to our house multiple times at this point. She told me that her computer had no record of it. After about 20-minutes, she was able to locate our "file". Not sure wha the problem was, but yet another problem with Sear's. Since they only service our area Tuesdays and Thursdays, we had to wait a few additional days once the parts arrived to have the fridge repaired. After almost 5 weeks after the refrigerator stopped working, we finally had it fixed. Although it is keeping our food cold, the motor is so loud that it is hard to have a conversation in the kitchen. They have told us this is "normal".

I am so mad at the way Sears have treated us!!! My oven stopped working over 5 weeks ago and I am still getting the run around.

I purchased the extended warrenty and 1 year and 4 months later, my oven stopped working.

Their comments when I call is "what do you want me to do"!!! I couldn't even cook a thanksgiving turkey for my son who came home from university! Sears has treated my "lack of OVEN" as a joke. The girl named Michelle, said "well it has ONLY been 5 weeks".

Tell that to my children, my husband and my elderly mother who like to enjoy my homemade cookies, cakes and a nice thanksgiving dinner, that I could not cook. I can feel for the "Sears messed up at every step"

Sears bad service, has too much business

10-8-09 paid sears good money to fix dishwasher 10-10-09 sears came out to look at dishwasher, could not fix. Had to order parts. 10-17-09 had to wait a week, even though parts showed up in a few days. Could not fix again even though the problem on what was wrong was reported 10-8-09 and a second time on 10-09-09. 10-24-09 want to come back a third time to attempt repair. Sears repair said they close at 4:30 and can not help anyone who is lucky enough to have a job that does not get home until 5:30pm Sears must be doing very well and has too much business to have to come back three times to repair something they already knew what the problem was on day 1. It seems in this down turned economy that sears does not care much as they can afford to work when ever they want and how ever they want. Their attitude is for anyone who does not accept their *** service to go somewhere else. Well I am, and since I am the paying customer, my money comes with me. Sears seems to be doing so well that they do not care about the customer base.

do you honestly expect a service repair guy to drive a semi around full of parts? I thought not.

Now why are you so full of yourself to expect a company to wait in you hand and foot? The parts came in and you got a new appointment. Where is the problem? Or do you honestly think you are the only person on this planet with a broken dishwasher?

Why do you need a dishwasher anyway. Wash your dishes with your lazy hands!

You are a *** and probably part of the k-Mart company.

YES we do expect good service and a guy who drives around with a truck full of parts

To fix WHATEVER we need fixed considering that we bought maintenance agreements that cost plenty. YOU seem pretty full of YOURSELF as well. Since you are probably a dish washer anyway why don't you wash their dishes until they can get theirs repaired?

You won't be so *** when you lose your job from company bankruptcy.

You need this dishwasher to wash your nasty mouth out with soap. Go back to K-mart and go Sc--w yourself. You are a worthless individual.

Sears delivery is horrible, even to Sears employees. Usually the store ends up taking care of the customers because delivery doesn't follow up with their promises. Sorry to hear that,please call the corporate office and complaint, they should get rid of them!
