DON"T BUY FROM SEARS!
"I purchased a wall mounted fan from the Sears "Marketplace". I purchased it for a room that was being renovated, so I didn't install it right away. About a week after it was installed, my grandchildren were staying the weekend and slept in the room with the newly installed fan. About 3 am the fan broke, literally came apart inside the cage. The noise was so loud that my grandchildren thought there was gunfire and were terrified laying there in the dark. I immediately contacted Sears and the person I spoke to told me I had to call the manufacturer. He gave me a phone number that didn't work, so I called Sears back. They tried calling the number and found that it wasn't a working number. I was told they would get back to me in 72 hours. They didn't. I called again and was again told that they would get back to me in 72 hours. This time I got an e-mail stating that since I didn't return the fan in 30 days, there was nothing they could do. I repeat, the fan worked for about 5 hours and Sears refuses to warranty it. I chatted with them and all they could say was I should have returned it in 30 days and that there was nothing they could do. Sears used to take care of their customers. This is no longer true. Now I understand why so many of their stores are going out of business. DON"T BUY FROM SEARS!!!! They won't take care of you if something goes wrong.!!"
"Purchased from Bestselling, product not as advertised and they will not take returns. "
High on sales and low on service
"They were to haul off my old refrigerator and stated that the truck was to full could they please come back on Monday and pick up the old one. I reluctantly said yes. I should have known better. I requested that they face the doors to the garage so that no small child could get in it. The failed to comply and now they are telling me that it will be Thursday before they can haul it away. Unacceptable, so I ask to talk to the manager. He stated that it would be Saturday before they could haul it away. Then he asked if he could call me back in an hour. I agreed.... it has been two hours and have they bothered to call back...NOPE"
Sears ruined my wedding anniversary
"I ordered a $2000 dining room sets on june 29, i was supposed to get it delivered 5 to 10 days later. They brought me my chairs but did not bring the dining table. I called and informed them. They sent me a damaged table which i did not receive. Still today my chairs are in the dining room without a table. Worse customer services ever. Very bad employees. I don't know why sears is still in business. I had my wedding anniversary dinner planned, and because of sears carelessness i could not enjoy my meals with my love ones. Sears is a scam, sears is robbing people. I must get my table before the end of this month. Otherwise i will sue you! By the way, i already informed my lawyer. Bad company. Big scam. My friends, family members and i will never ever order anything from you! I cannot sleepsince "
Please go away, Sears.com - Bait & Switch
"Ordered and paid for a washer and dryer from Sears.com, with my primary need being that I had to have delivery by 8/3/18, which their website boldly said they would do. Received the confirmation page after payment that items "will be delivered on August 3, 2018." Felt very good at that point - had the written confirmation of delivery, so spoke to my boss about taking an unpaid day off so I could be at home for the delivery. A few days went by and I had not received more detailed delivery information, so I called them to inquire. They said delivery would August 7, and did not believe me that I had confirmation in writing for 8/3 delivery. I asked where I could email my proof, and, of course they don't accept emails. Got transferred from delivery dept to online orders dept back to delivery dept - about 2.5 hours on phone with various customer service reps. I needed delivery by 8/3, so I asked to cancel the order. They said they would but I wouldn't receive my refund for 7-10 days. Called my boss to cancel my day off, but it was too late - he had scheduled someone else to take over my shift. So I'm out a day's pay and will likely have to take another day off if I am to believe they will deliver 8/7. No apologies from them, just "I can understand why you're upset." Please stay off the web, Sears - you guys don't get it at all, and obviously aren't prepared to deliver on your promises. You are using pure bait-and-switch tactics and deserve to go the way of Blockbuster..."
Horrendous customer service
"I bought a Briggs & Stratton Electric power washer from Sears.com. There was a problem with the power washer since it kept shutting down a few seconds after I try to squeeze the trigger to power-wash my siding. It actually tripped the fuse in the electric panel. I tried this a couple of times, with the same results. I also tried plugging it to another power outlet in the back of my house, but got the same results. I called Briggs & Stratton, and they said that there could be a problem with the unit and asked me to call Sears.When I called Sears for their online 'customer care' number, I was told that I couldn't return the unit because it's been more than 30 days since I purchased it. Even if I explained that I was on vacation for 3 weeks so that I wasn't able to open it and use it right away, the customer representative (Brad) wouldn't budge, and neither his supervisor. So I asked to be transferred to the Repairs department (800-349-4358). The Repairs department representative (Marlon) then told me that since it was an online purchase, I needed to speak to someone on the online department. So I got transferred to the online customer care department once more (Omar), who told me that he would transfer me to the 'right' department. But I was just transferred back to the Repairs department again(!), where Justin told me that he couldn't see my order in the system that he's using, so he cannot help me even if I gave him the order number and salescheck number. He said I needed to ask the online customer service department to update my sales record, and so I was transferred yet again! Eventually, Carl had to do a conference call with Joe from repairs, who gave me a local dealer that may be able to fix the unit.I had to talk to 6 customer support people for over 2 hours before I got the answer I needed. Never again will I order anything from Sears online!"
Ruined my Kitchen
"I ordered a black dishwasher, to go with my black Refrigerator & black stove & they send me a chrome stainless color. I had a friend install (he charged me $20.00/Sears wanted $160.00 for 20 minutes work) so he installs not knowing it should be black. The wife & I come home to find we have a Chrome color dishwasher that totally does not match our kitchen. I am on the phone for 45 minutes & they transfer me 3 times & each time I have to start my story/order# etc. all over again. They said since it is already installed all they could do is give me a $30.00 discount! They can keep their $30.00, I'd rather have my 45 minutes of life back & a dishwasher the color I ordered. How can they deliver me a wrong dishwasher? Is it that hard to read a Model number when picked up for delivery? The Model was different for black so I don't see how they can make such a mistake.I will never buy anything from Sears again & I will advising everyone who listen to do the same! Their CS is bad & I can see why they are failing as a company. Why buy from a company who has so many problems & do not care about their customers one bit! So long SEARS! You will never get a penny from me & I hope to stop as many people as I can to lose sales your way.Thanks for nothing!"
Worst Sears Home Warranty
"I have Sears Home Warranty. I called Sears in February 2018 to check my Air conditioner. Service request was logged # SCCL2LVJD9-3. Customer Service Reps are cooperative but they are helpless as Sears Systems are not integrated. So CSRs don't get the right status. Service provider looked at the AC and ordered some parts. Sears lost track of the parts and ordered wrong parts. Service provider reordered the right parts and Sears is still going through the process of procurement and tracking for last 4 moths. Meanwhile Sears wanted to complete 2nd opinion on the parts and they changed 3 Service providers. Even after 4 months Sears is not able to track their own parts ( sounds Ridiculous in the digital world). My family and I are still having sleepless nights due to scorching heat of over 95 degrees in Texas. Any suggestions to fix this issue with Sears are most welcome."
poor warranty service
"my Sears Kenmore washer, under warranty, needs repair/parts. i was informed by the Sears' contractor that the part will not be available for over 2 weeks. this is not acceptable. they are totally unapologetic, telling me that if the part is not here in 2 weeks to give them a call. they should refund my warranty fee or provide me with a new washer."
This business needs to end
"Worst customer service ever. Please boycott this business! #boycottsears"
Stay away from Sears Marketplace
"When purchasing online through the Sears website to purchase clothes, I didn't realize it was through their marketplace. This means whatever you buy, whether the wrong order is sent or if the item doesn't fit, they will not refund you or provide a return label to mail it back to them. It took them over three weeks to send it and when I finally got the item it was 35 days after the purchase. Then when I got it it was completely the wrong order. Then I was told they cannot refund me because it has been more than 30 days since I ordered it. I would have never ordered the item if I knew they were not going to send it for weeks later. I wouldn't have purchased the item if I knew that they were going to send me the wrong order and not back up their process by sending me the correct order. When I called to talk to Sears and then the Marketplace, they were not helpful at all. The people at the store did the best they could, but told me that they couldn't provide me a refund because of the Marketplace policy. I would advise anyone considering purchasing from Sears to not do so because they will not provide you with good customer service (especially on the phone) and they will not refund you if they deliver the wrong item and if it doesn't fit and simply....they will not refund you at all."
Sears won't honor warranty
"Terrible customer service. I have a Kenmore (Sears) freezer that broke under warranty. It's been 40 days now and Sears has still neither replaced nor repaired the unit. I have called in 10+ times, to no avail. Do NOT buy from Sears. They do NOT honor their warranty. Sears does not deserve to be in business. I hear they are going bankrupt. Well deserved! "
Robbery BEWARE and DO NOT USE Sears.com
"I had bought a Honeywell wifi thermostat $183 from Sears.com (Marketplace). I received the package almost 2 weeks longer then it said it would take (oh well). I had a box that came and it was an Amazon box... ?? HUH? I opened it and found the product box dirty, torn, and the clear round security stickers that keep the top and bottom lids shut were obviously missing. When I open the box, the pieces fell out and were not even packaged in plastic or anything. This was obviously a USED item that was shipped to me. I purchased a new thermostat, not this crap that seems to have been someones returned item. I contacted Sears.com and was directed to some outsourced call center where I was told that we have to submit a complaint to the seller 2ship (NOT SEARS) and they would have 2-3 business days to respond. Well, they never responded and Sears system did an automatic escalation. It said wait 72hours for a response. I waited a week and still never heard anything, so I chatted online with a customer service rep. Long conversation but at the end I was told it was going to go to escalations AGAIN for the 2nd time (WTF) and to please wait 72 hours. If after the 72 hours the seller does not respond Sears.com would issue a full refund (yes I have this in writting). Well... you guessed it! after 72 hours I did not get a response from the seller so I contacted Sears again and talked to a rep named Art and I had to go through the whole story with him and everything AFTER I asked to speak to a Supervisor.... He told me he was sending this to ESCALATIONS. Finally I was transfered to a SUpervisor named Gail that after talking with me she stated that she was in fact working to give me a refund. She stated that it would take about an hour and asked if she could call me back after the refund was processed, and I agreed. I made sure she had my correct phone number and email address.NO PHONE CALL, NO REFUND as promised by a Supervisor. SO, I called back the following day and had to talk to someone new and go through the whole story for what a 5th-6th time. Anyway, I was told this would go to ESCALATIONS again!!! What the Hell is going on here? How is SEARS legally allowed to do this? They have a Marketplace Guarantee and nobody there even knows the policy. I was tranfered to yet another agent that said I would have to send back the item before a refund is issued. I countered this statement with NO WAY, NO HOW will I spend more of my time shipping this junk back, besides why whould I do that when the seller has not even responded to Sears nor myself and I would have no guarantee to even get a refund after doing that. So, I said NO I will not ship back until I get the refund. I was told okay I will submit to "escalation" (this is just the most stupid company on earth now) to let them know I want a refund first. This is just crazy and again with all the complaints out there about Sears.com Marketplace How has the legal system not stepped in?In conclusion:I was promised on 2 seperate occasions to get a refund if the seller did not respond. I was told in one of the conversations by a Supervisor that the refund was being processed. LIES!!!Stay away Stay away Stay away from Sears ALL TOGETHER> They outsource their customer service and they lie!"
BEWARE OF DELIVERY MEN
"I had a delivery of a washer and dryer from Sears. When the air vent from the dryer was crimped and I told the installer it was not correct, he became angry, aggressive and said "you are wasting my time". I took a picture and called my contractor. He began saying disparaging remarks about my husband, as he thought I was talking to my husband. I did not feel safe. He pulled my dryer out to the edge of the step, said, "are you satisfied" and walked out of my garage got into his truck and left.I was finally able to reach a lining person from Sears, all the numbers are 800 numbers with automation, and we are returning EVERYTHING. HORRIBLE, FRIGHTENING experience."
Worst online and customer service experience ever.
"Ordered two mattresses to be delivered at a lake house in different state. Delivery wouldn't go down driveway with truck and wouldn't use cart or carry mattresses down. My 80 year-old uncle was there at the time, so he couldn't go up the driveway and get them. They don't get out of their truck to deliver apparently, so the order was cancelled. I still have not been refunded the money for the mattresses. I have made 3 calls, 1 online chat, and 1 email. I have been told twice that they will put it through to the credit department. They have sent me an email that the box springs were refunded which is true, but the other $800 for the mattresses has not been refunded. I don't even understand how screwed up the delivery was. I have had big items delivered before. I don't even understand how they don't actually deliver. But the customer service has been the worst. I've wasted hours trying to resolve this. I never received the items, but I have been charged and can't seem to fix it. I am going to have to go through my credit card company at this point. I hate Sears.com. There are so many other online retailers that do a better job. Beware of Sears. "
