"Purely unethical. They filter negative reviews!I purchased a $5,100 couch from Overstock based largely on the glowing reviews. I assumed a couch at this price must be a good quality since there wasn't a single negative review. Since we as consumers are buying these products site-unseen the reviews are a major factor in whether someone does/doesn't buy. You must trust the company you are buying from to be open, honest and ethical in allowing reviews, even negative ones, to be posted. Overstock clearly is none of those things. I have attempted on 5 occasions to leave a review an honest, unemotional, review, each one was rejected. It is far worse to only allow positive reviews than it is to have no reviews at all. That is a COMPLETE misrepresentation of the products you are selling. My review spoke in detail about the quality of the product, from a very informed perspective and was rejected not once but five times. They cited the fact I mentioned the shipping, which was out of their control, but every single positive review on their site currently for the product also mentions shipping but they let those get posted as they are 5 stars. I feel robbed and cheated in this whole process. This is purely unethical and I will go to great lengths to insure all potential Overstock consumers are informed about this practice of filtering out negative reviews. Buyer beware. Additionally I called to try and cancel the order before receiving the shipment since the date of the shipment kept slipping out. The Overstock representative on the other end of the line convinced me to accept the delivery by telling me, repeatedly, that if I took delivery a manager would call me back and compensate me with a credit I could use on future purchases. They did not. I took delivery based on that promise, which they broke, and I ordered based on reviews that they have manipulated to misrepresent the product."
"Absolutely terrible ordering experience. Ordered 2 stainless steel rings. One of the rings sent was a completely different ring and looked nothing like it. I contacted customer service. They were indifferent to it and basically told me to send it back. I am not going through the hassle to send it back for a measely $14. NEVER AGAIN WILL I ORDER FROM OVERSTOCK.COM. NEVER!!!!"
"I ordered this product over a week ago with the expectation that it would be delivered within the coming days. However, after receiving an email from Overstock informing me that this product has shipped, UPS has only received billing information from the site. I have checked the tracking status of my package and it has said "expected to ship in 7 business days" for the past 5 days. When I tried to contact Overstock customer care 3 days ago I received an email saying a representative would be in touch within 24 hours,I have yet to be contacted. Very poor service will not order from Overstock again. A friend of mine ordered the same product from Amazon the same day that I did and received it within 3 days. "
"Ordered an item on their site and before actually placing the order I spoke with online chat to verify the price was correct and it was in stock. They verified everything was g2g so I placed my order. About 4 days later they canceled my order. Without an explanation I called in and they sated it was a pricing error. They couldn't even put an explanation in the email, I had to call in to find out. The CS rep was fumbling with words and trying not to make it obvious she was lying. This item was the same price numerous times. This was the last straw with OS and will never waste my time with them again."
"Contacted OS customer service several times, but I could not get a decent reply to my question. I received replies, but they were truly off the wall and in no way related to my question. I am unsure in what country the OS representatives are located, but none seemed to comprehend English. After about eight attempts, I finally gave up and resorted to shopping elsewhere. It seemed like the representatives were simply selected some stock replies to send to me, and none of them made sense. "
"I ordered, paid $599 for and received a laptop computer from OO. Trouble is it would not charge up with power.I phoned and asked for a refund. Initially I was told that this was not their concern, I would have to take it up with the manufacturer (of course it was manufactured overseas).I told them this was incorrect in law, that they had supplied me with faulty goods and they had an obligation in law to offer me a refund or replacement (my choice). Eventually after about 20 minutes of hassles they agreed to this, subject to my getting the goods returned to them in 30 days.I asked for details of return address etc. : they said they would send me this by email.The email came ... no return address, just that someone would be contacting me to arrange for collection. So far, nothing.Why do I get the impression that they are making this as difficult as possible for me? "
"I ordered a diamond ring for an anniversary surprise for my husband. The web site said it was in stock & would ship within 2 days. Someone contacted me the day after to confirm my order because it was over a certain amount. They said everything was a go & the order would be processed immediately. Five days later I get an email the item has shipped. I contact them & they offer no explanation whatsoever just an apology. Then the FedEx tracking info isn't available until the following day which stated the order would arrive the next day. When the next day came the arrival date had been changed to 5 days in the future. Now the item is arriving not within 10 days as promised but after 13 days which has ruined my anniversary surprise. They won't explain to me what & why this happened, just keep saying this is unusual for Overstock.com Come to find out on this site, it's not unusual at all & their shipping is a serious problem. I won't order anything from them again."
"Fast Delivery but the product quality is not as described. The bedsheet I got was only 300 thread instead of 400 thread. Overall, the shopping experience is good."
"Ordered a mattress. The status shows: shipped. Nothing arrived after 10 days. When I call in to check, they said the item was out of order and there is nothing they can do.AVOID this site at all cost!!!"
"I had purchased this tablet about last july, my very first wacom tablet and my last, its a great tablet no doubt, comes with exceptional (but old) art software and easy installing, "big" drawing space, but thats about it . Now why this is my last wacom tablet, wacom's BIG price games, now at the time i bought this, it was the cheapest i could find on this tablet, thats after doing my tablet research, why buy the CTH670 when the CTH470 is over 50 dollars less ! mistake on my part . Now after a while (a little over warranty time) i decided to return this tablet, cause i was a little annoyed and sadden at how much i over-payed for this thing, after a back and fourth e-mails, with one phone call, they ofter sellers remorse, which i thought was nice, until finding out how much i was going to receive back, LESS THEN 30% !. Overstocks return/refund policy is downright awful and out-dated, which influenced me in any interest i ever had for them, to never purchase from them ever again ! And i don't recommend anyone else either. As for this website featuring the biggest discounts, is horrible address, i mean its not like overstock sold this tablet for how you say 130$ or 100$,which is how much this tablet should actually cost, considering this tablets not anything special or new. Thats my take, theres better sites than overstock and better, cheaper tablets than the all praised "wacom" ."
"Great merchandise selection. Pretty good price. i think this website is good as long as you're patient to browse around"
"I will probably not order from this site again. They do not let you cancel orders and their low price guarantee is a sham. If you find a lower price elsewhere, they tell you they can't match it because it's on sale at the other site. How ridiculous is that? Will not be shopping here again."
"Not sure why people are not writing good reviews, I love Overstock! We had smoke damage in our home. They were SO helpful! In addition to free shipping, they took 5% off my order. I have ordered numerous items, including furniture, and pleased with everything! Will continue to be a loyal shopper."
"Even with all the bad reviews over stock.com is worse than that. I ordered a skateboard for my son's birthday and it didn't arrive. Even worse I paid $37 for shipping to ensure delivery on or before his birthday. He didn't get it on his birthday and still has not received it. Now they're saying that they have to locate the product and possibly send a replacement later If it doesn't arrive. So here I sit with a 14 year old boy upset this birthday present didn't arrive while I live in Virginia and he lives in Kansas. His birthday was the seventh and as of the 13th they may send new product out if he hasn't received it by then. I will never order from overstock.com again and this is a warning for mothers out there or friends buying gifts for family members 1 star is overrated for this company"
