Worst appliance purchase experience ever
"I purchased a GE dishwasher from the Sears Outlet in St Pete, Fl, and it was the worst experience ever in my 63 years of appliance purchases. You had better be very well versed in the appliance you are buying, because there are all kinds of issues with the stuff they are selling. You better know your product extremely well, because the salesperson on the floor, will not offer any professional advise on your purchase, they are only concerned about moving product. While loading the dishwasher into my vehicle, the salesperson accidentally let go of the dolly and it ran into my car causing damage. The store paid for the damage, but I would much rather not had the damage and the hassle to get repaired. The dishwasher I purchased did not have the leveling legs on the bottom, in the darkness of the night I did not notice this. It became a hassle to go back and get legs from them, even though my salesman told me telephonically it would be no problem, but it was. There is no way I will purchase from them again, no matter how much the savings."
Sear a Terrible Company
"it was atrocious, terrible company. ordered a dishwasher rack 2 weeks ago after 2 weeks of being told they were unsure as to when its would arrive I finally cancelled my order went through another company that was able to over night the rack to me without delay. after calling sears to cancel the rack I called back the following day to ensure I would no longer have to deal with such a horrible company the very next day they sent the rack out.....I wouldn't order anything through them again even calling to get more information has been a terrible experience save yourself a head ache and weeks of arguing with them its not worth it."
Say No!! Do not shop here.
"This used to be a good store. Now they are horrible! They used to be Sears Scratch and Dent. You could get great deals on good products that had been dented or scratched. They changed it to items that had been returned because the no longer work. Do not buy anything there! When their repair person cannot repair the item they will try to force you to take another of their broken items. At this point I do not trust them!! I don't want anything from them. Don't shop there. You will be sorry!!"
Beware Sears has a way to steal your money
"I tried ordering a Kayak from Sears outlet online. I placed the order and paid for it and than I got to a page what said.: YOUR ORDER COULD NOT BE PLACED, PLEASE TRY AGAIN.I checked with my Paypal account and to my surprise Sears had taken my payment out my account.I would like to know if anybody else has had this happening to them. As the exact same thing happened to me in November when I tried ordering a fridge from Sears. Than it took me over 2 months and many, many calls and emails before i finely got my money back. As this happened to me twice now I am sure this is a trick from Sears to steal customers money. "
Try and get your item delivered!
"I purchased a wall oven on Jan. 10, 2017 from the Sears Outlet Store in Naples, Fl. I live in Northwest Washington State. I paid $250.00 for the shipping and was told it would take 2 weeks to arrive at my door. It is now 2 days past 2 weeks and I have contacted the local warehouse in Tacoma, Wa and have been told it arrived there 8 days ago and they are "waiting" for authorization to ship the item to my house, as my address is "remote". Every time I call, I am put off to another phone number and another person who can't answer my question. I am now told I might expect it sometime next week, which would be 3+ weeks since I purchased it. I have gotten items faster from China than from Sears Outlet Stores. I will NEVER purchased from Sears again and I urge others to heed mine and the other reviews of their terrible customer service. Fred Yockers"
The last time you'll see your money (or your appliance) is the moment you place the order
"I ordered a refrigerator on Nov 23. It didn't arrive till Dec 23rd and came damaged. The delivery crew were easy enough to deal with and suggested I not accept it. The refrigerator had barely a flap of cardboard there to protect it but I figured I was fine and would get a refund and purchase another refrigerator. I was told they'd refund my money but here I am three weeks later with no refund or any promise when it will happen. Their customer service center throws the blame on some refund processing department who aren't available at all to customers and they make no promise whatsoever when it will take place. Who takes three weeks+ to process a refund ? The last note I got a week ago said I should wait 24-48 hours. I finally got a refund processed. The helpful step was getting ahold of a store manager at the original store. It was still far more work then it should have been. There seemed to be nobody of any authority you could speak to at their customer service line. They were only capable of sending off requests to some group that did the actual processing."
Terrible. Avoid no matter what.
"This is definitely one of a very wrong places to buy. Don't expect even simple apologizes for a deliberately misleading information. If you didn't agree to their hype you can go, nobody is interested in a customer who asks questions. Once you paid, they don't even bother to pack your items in a plastic bag. Take them, if you like, into your pockets. Bottom line: go to another store, Lowe's or Home Depot perhaps. Anything but Sears outlet."
WARNING POTENTIAL BUYERS YOU WILL BE SORRY!!
"I LEARNED THE HARD WAY TOO. I SHOULD HAVE READ ALL THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS ABOUT THIS JOINT. SURE ENOUGH THEY BURNED ME TOO. PURCHASED A FRIGIDAIRE FRIDGE FROM THEM. TWO WEEKS LATER IT STARTED LEAKING WATER FROM THE INSIDE OF THE FRIDGE. I DON'T EVEN HAVE AN ICE MAKER IT JUST DECIDED TO LEAK WATER??? THEN THEY TELL YOU TO CALL THE MANUFACTURER TO HAVE THEM DO A SERVICE CALL. OH YEAH THAT ANOTHER WONDER IN THE MAKING 3 PHONE CALLS LATER A WASTED AFTERNOON AND GUESS WHAT NO ONE SHOWED UP.WHAT A BRILLIANT WAY TO HONOR THEIR PRODUCT. WELL I WILL TRY AGAIN TOMORROW AND IF THEY DON'T SHOW UP AGAIN WELL JUDGE JUDY SEE YOU AND THEM IN COURT I THINK I CAN WIN THIS ONE. MY RECOMMENDATION DONT BUY THEIR GARBAGE."
Whatever you think you are saving in $, you will pay in pain dealing with SearsOutlet. Just DON'T Do it!!
"DO NOT BUY FROM SEARS OUTLET. SERIOUSLY, I WISH I COULD GO BACK IN TIME AND TO 15 DAYS AGO AND PREVENT MYSELF FROM BUYING FROM SEARS. I have been on the phone and email to them no less than 15 times trying to get back the GROSSLY overcharged tax to my purchase. That they charged $30 in tax over what they should have is FRAUD and wrong to begin with, but the ridiculous treatment I have had to endure since then is beyond reason. I STILL don't have the refund back, and they to top it off I had a person yesterday assure my credit will be to me in 5 days, then this morning I get an email that they have sent me a credit of only $11. I"m convinced these guys are a sham, fleecing profits by padding the cost of the sale, then making it impossible to talk to any representative that can actually do something about it, and making promises that they will take care of it and then don't. Don't even get me started on the product - The people who delivered my washer wouldn't hook it up because they said the hoses that came with it are too cheap and crappy to use. WTH!!!??? I wish I could give negative stars for a rating."
Never buy a dryer plus delivery/installation from Sears Outlet - they promise but do not deliver
"• The online website of Sears Outlet is not good in the first place, but I found an attractive price for a new gas dryer including a poorly described item called “delivery” for a total of $550. Since the price was very competitive for a new item, I contacted the online chat and tried to clarify what is included and what is not. The lady there said everything is included, even the installation and removal of the old dryer. As I couldn’t quite believe it, I explicitly asked whether the installation would also include the hook up of the gas line with all materials necessary and the lady confirmed this once again. Cheerfully I placed my order.• A couple days later the store that Sears had engaged for the installation called and said that I needed to provide for the upcoming installation a brand new gas connector kit for $32.98, which I agreed to buy, even though it did not sound right, given the promise of Sears’ support chat lady.• Another day later the store that Sears had engaged for the installation called again and said that I needed to purchase the installation in order to actually get the dryer hooked up when it will be delivered. And there would be nothing they could do, because they were only the middle men. So I ended up paying another $20. Since this did not sound right at all anymore, I contacted Sears support and requested a compensation or remedy for this. Now they said the chat lady had been wrong and the installation was not included!• But then, when the “installation team” finally appeared they explained that they would not be able to actually install the dryer, since the shut-off valve of the gas line would be 3 feet too far away from the connecting point. They dropped off the item and left.• As a result I had to hire a third party plumber on short notice for $245 to get the item installed (by now I was paying the third time for the same thing). The plumber explained that he often deals with this issue and always Sears’ “installation teams” are involved. He also stated that there is no code requirement regarding the distance between the shut-off valve and the connection point. It is a mere Sears regulation, if there is one actually.• Since the old dryer had not been picked up, I had to make 6 calls until I found a person at Sears, who was able to find and talk to the team, which Sears had engaged, to schedule a pick up date for the old dryer. I had to find out that nobody in the service team really understands the Sears organization.• After all that I attempted another 3 times to call Sears in order to express my dissatisfaction and explain how I incurred such high cost all because Sears claims services, which it simply will not deliver. For the inconvenience incurred I was promised to get a $80 reimbursement, which is nothing in comparison to my cost incurred."
"I bough a fridge at the sears outlet. I am not able to leave a review due to an error stating I have too many characters??? i would be happy to send whomever can assist my statement."
"Purchase a stainless steel Kenmore Elite 30 cu ft refrigerator from Sears Outlet, I purchased NEW INBOX. After about 12 days when not delivered to my shippers in Miami (I Live in the Caribbean) I started to asked Sears what was the problem, after many calls, Customer Service suggested that I contact the Meddly store in Miami. After many attempts and a couple of day someone at the store finally answer and said they sought it out, I explained to the gentleman that I live in the Caribbean and please ensure my that unit was and package was not damage, after about 30 min on hold he said everything was great and he is watching the unit and its find, I asked how could he tell, he said he can see the unit and I responded that I thought it was in a seal box, he said no. That they only sell used and refurbish. I explained that I choose and paid for NEW as reflected on my invoice. He insisted he only sell used and refur. and I indicated not send anything other than New to my shippers since they will not accept anything other than NEW Inbox. He became upset and hanged the phone up on me, I immediately contacted Sears Outlet Customer Service and Explain AGAIN the whole Story. The guy then tried to call the Store after hold for about min while he tried to contact the store, when he finally got in contact and give the order number, the guy at the store just hanged up the phone on him, customer service to was upset and logged a complaint. as weeks goes by I contacted customer complaint a lot of time racked up over $300 in phone bills and everytime I have start all over with the story, today I was tod for the 3rd time that I have to wait 48 hours for the store to respond so I can get my money back, this was done 3 times before, I have asked to speak with a manager or someone with authority with no luck. they provided me with the store number AGAIN and asked that I try to call the store since they could not get in contact (What SHAME Sear, if Sears CUSTOMERS SERVICE can't contact the store why would you think that I can ) they offer me 10% credit not exceeding $150 for my problems, not taking into consideration my credit card interest rate/delays/ phone calls/ time wastage etc. No wonder WHY SEARS is Crashing You Guys are A bloody Mess"
"We recently purchase a Kenmore refrigerator from a Sears Outlet store in Corona, Ca. We purchased a 5 year extended warranty feeling satisfied that if anything happened they would resolve the issue. It seemed like a good deal at the time but after about two months it started making a lot of noise and icing up in the freezer. It also stopped cooling. We called the repair number and asked for a service call. They gave us a date two weeks away. We were shocked. How could they let us down like this? We had to go and buy another refrigerator just to wait for the Sears service call. After two weeks they never showed up. They claim all their repairs are done by third party contractors and Sears is NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REPAIR WORK. So we had to call the repair company to reschedule. I will never buy another thing from Sears."
" Two delivery men came into my girlfriends house last week for a scheduled delivery. She was alone. After entering and being what she described as "very rude and impolite" they found the valves to which they were going to hook up her new washing machine. After surveying the situation, they told her that hey could not install her washing machine because the valves in her wall had corrosion on them. (we later sought a second an third opinion, both were plumbers and neither found any corrosion on either valve. They explained it was simply paint and that the valves were in good condition) So after lying to her that the valves were corroded, they prompted that they would install the washer anyway if she gave them more money "off the books". After asking them to clarify what they meant and being told again that they would do what they came to do if she gave them extra money on the side, she told them to leave. They began to try a negotiate a price with her, to which she repeated that she wanted them out of her home. After they eventually left, he called me immediately telling me how intimidated and uncomfortable they made her feel in her own home. I can't tell you how infuriating it is to find out that your girlfriend who is a single mother was taken advantage of in her own home. It is unacceptable to say the least. On top of that, after filing multiple reports with sears and their 3rd party delivery service i got a very nonchalant email reply telling me to let SEARS know when she gets the valves fixed so that they can send another delivery team out. And oh yeah, offered us a $50 gift card. What a joke. The behavior of the delivery men was completely unacceptable and the response from SEARS has been almost non existent. Its 2015 and a single mother can even have a product from a company as big as SEARS delivered to her home with out being taken advantage of by the intimidating, money hungry delivery men....working for the delivery service that SEARS employs. i rate them at a negative 10, all parties would have been better off if this interaction had never happened, and we had taken our business elsewhere in the first place. So if you are a female, or any person who is not trying to get schemed don't shop with SEARS."
