Sears review in Cumming, Georgia: Saers can't identify the part in my washer.

After waiting for 7 1/2 hours foe the repairman to arrive he couldn't identify the part that needed to be replaced. Sear Parts says that none of the tags labels or serial numbers match anything in their inventory. They charged my credit card $70 and left without even ordering the proper parts. When I called the 800 number back I was told that nothing could be done until Monday as the "Special InvestigationTeam" was already closed. In my opinion Sears' Warranty & Repair is a ripoff. I've paid thousands for the appliances and service agreements and now they can't do a simple repair.

Sears credit card

I cannot understand how Sears figures their credit card applications fair. I have a credit rating in the 700's and nothing bad on my credit (heck, I just bought a home and a new car!). But, I was turned down becasue of too many credit pulls and too many new accounts. These are directly related to student loans through Wells Fargo in which they disperse their loans quarterly and it appears as if I have 2 loans opening every 3 months (one is subsidized and one is unsubsidized). I make over $100,000 a year and have great credit otherwise but they refused to manually look over my credit to see that. They told me that they only look at what the reasons stated for the scoring and not the actual credit itself. How can they run a buissness like this? It is unfair and they have lost a potential great customer. I went to Lowes and they not only gave me a credit card, but they have my buissness from now on. And I need things for my new home I would have (and until recently) went to Sears for the home repair and services they provide. Now Lowes has my buissness.

obviously you work for them so I will grant you the brain washing you seem to be under. Applying for credit has ALWAYS hurt your credit, that is not new.

My arguement was simply that they refused a customer that has always paid her bills on time- current score is (782 thank you). I think you answered out of frusteration that I make so much more than you.

I know Sears doesn't pay their employees much. Next time, leave the replies to those who have an intelligent response to add- not your attempt to attack my intelligence.

Well genius... if you pay attention to the news you would know that applying for loans and credit cards counts against your credit now.

AND they are raising the bar for applicants because there have been too many idiots who never paid their bill cuz Sears was too nice. And I'm glad Lowes has your business because Sears doesn't need another pissy customer.

Sears review in Pell City, Alabama: Sorry Store

The store I go to is in Pell City Alabama. I ordered a part and they told me I would get it in 5 to 7 days.............I have not got the part. (part ordered and paid for on 3/11/09) I went to the store at 9AM today and the only guy that was there told me that he could not help me and the Manager would be there at 9:30 am.........ok I waited till 10am no ne showed up. Is this the way you run a Sears Store? if so it will be last time I do business with Sears. If you have posted that store opens at 9AM then why is it not ready to searve at 9AM.......maybe you need to change the sign to "we open when we get ready" You have no business being in Business.

On April 8, 2009 I called Sears about my Kenmore washer not working. They said it would be 2 weeks and make sure someone was home to anwser the phone or the appt. would be cancelled. My husband spent all day at home w/ no phone call. So I call Sears back and ask why no one has called to come about my washer. He tells me there is no appt. scheduled for me. I told him he is wrong I called and made the appt. myself. He finds that I did call but there is no appt. set. He kindly tells me I have to WAIT another TWO WEEKS. I tell him that I can't believe they are going to make me wait again, he saids I'm sorry but I can ofter you a free in home estimate and any home services of your choice. I told him no thank you and will not be buying or doing any more business with SEARS again after my service agreement runs out. AND BY THE WAY THERE IN HOME SERVICE ESTIMATES ARE FREE AWAY! Some deal.

Sears review in Santa Cruz, California: So many problems

So first off i was trying to order from the store to be delivered to my new house but the store closest to my new home was not in the system. It was a private store not a corporate store so i could not order at a regular store and have it delivered to the private store. The salesman talked me into ordering it from Sear.com so he would get a commission. I got approved for a Sears card while i was there but it would only cover $1500.00 and the whole order total was $2500.00 so the salesman talked me into buying 3 $500.00 gift cards to use so i could split payments. The next day Sears.com cancels my fridge because they ran out of stock, and try to refund the gift cards. I never had the gifts cards in the first place they got thrown away at the store.Then for the 2nd part of the transaction they tried to charge my American Express card for $1.00 then $75.00, then when they tried to charge the $939.00 my card canceled payment because it looked shady. I go into Sears to cancel everything. I am in the middle of escrow and the last thing I need is *** Sears messing up my credit report but they won't help me at the store, they say that because I ordered it from the store but on the web I have to go onto Sears.com to cancel it. I go home and call the *** Sears.com help line and.... they say I can't be helped by them and I have to go back to the store and get the problem fixed there. Fast forward 2 weeks and finally Sears.com says they are sending me a check to refund me and that they would send me a check. That was on March 13th. On the 27th I send them a email saying that I haven't gotten it yet. They send me back an Email saying that they haven't even processed or validated the *** check yet and they wouldn't even get around to it until April 1st. Well Aprils fool to me for ever shopping at Sears. I have no faith in Sears anymore. No-one there cares that they have basically stolen credit and actual money from me with a vague promise to fix the problem later.

Sears Home Protection Plan Disavowed

We paid $52/year for the Sears Home Protection Plan for the last 3 years. Recently, when our Kenmore dryer went on the fritz, we called the Sears people at 1-800-469-4663 (800-4My-Home). After playing "telephone tag" with a number of representatives, they all deny any knowledge of such a plan. According to our last bank statement, the last check was cashed by CitiCorp Insurance Services, Inc. Unfortunately, I did not scan the form or address I used when I mailed it out. They have taken our money and refused to provide any support. I have contacted our bank for more information about who cashed our check.

I was wanting you to check my home protection plan to let me know if this had been paid.

I found a letter of 8/16/11. I always had this put on my sears card.

My husband passed away 8/31/2011 and they said neither of my cards were any good.

We had a Sears card since 1965. Please let me know my address is still 3047 Oneida Valley Rd, Hilliards, PA 16040 Janet Timco jbtimco@yahoo.com

this type only covers your deductible on the home insurance. Get a $500 deductible and you save on ins every year.

If ice storm or whatever comes along you are covered from this for the deductible amt. It will not cover your contents.

It almost sounds like you got a third party insurance plan . I would check the literature that you should've been given to find out who you actually are supposed to deal with .

If it is the 800 number and I was start communicating with Sears Corporate offices .

Sears Canada

My wife and I shopped at Sears Canada both in-store and on-line very regularly. We ordered a patio set of chairs and a table which arrived in the winter and was put into storage. About four months later I received a call at work from a collector demanding payment (just over $200) on my Sears account. We had forgotton about the set in storage and NEVER received a statement or invoice from Sears. No reminder or notification, just a call from a collector. Sears Canada lost a very long term and loyal customer. It is unusual to not be contacted and we expect better.

Sears review in Boise, Idaho: Promotional details left out by sales person

My mother and I went into Sears to replace an appliance and were told there was a promotion going on but were NOT told that if the appliance wasn't paid off at the end of 12 months all that interest would be put onto my card. I have always made my payments to Sears but these unknown interest charges caused my card to go over the limit and make the payment higher then I am able to pay at this time. Called to work it out with Sears and they are unwilling to work with me but are calling and harassing me every other day about payment when I have specifically told them I can't pay this amount due to THEIR salesman omition of facts about the promotion.

There are new regulations coming out in 2010 which affect 'same as cash' promotions for this very reason .Too many are simply not informed of the higher interest and interest on the entire balance/principal if not paid by the end of the promotion .

On one hand more questions should have been asked by the customer but a conscientious salesman should have explained the no interest promotion to the customer in more detail .But that's what seperates the professionals from the ignorant .

I signed up for a Sears credit card and everything was fine. I paid it every month on time and more than the minimum. Then I bought a house and ran up the card to the max of $5000 buying new appliances. I continued making payments above the minimum. My interest rate...

WOW! LITTLE DID I KNOW WHEN CHECKING INTERNET ON CITI/SEARS CREDIT CARD SCAM ACTIVITIES THAT I WOULD I FIND SO MANY PEOPLE WITH SIMILAR ISSUES WITH CITI/SEARS CREDIT CARDS.

NO NEED TO SHARE MY STORY, READ ALL THE OTHER REVIEWS--YOU CAN PUT LIPSTICK ON THE PIG BUT IT IS STILL A PIG. LOAN SHARKS OFFER BETTER DEALS THEN CITI/SEARS. I SUGGEST WE ALL FORCE THEM TO SEND OUR ACCOUNTS TO COLLECTIONS AND INCREASE THEIR COST TO COLLECT AND GO TO COURT AND REVEAL THEIR BUSINESS PRACTICES.

THIS ONE BAD ACCOUNT WILL NOT IMPACT MOST PEOPLE'S CREDIT ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE BECOMES GENERAL KNOWLEDGE OF CITI/SEARS BUSINESS PRACTICES. TOO BAD FOR AN OLD PREVIOUSLY RESPECTED AMERICAN COMPANY TO DO BUSINESS THIS WAY.
