American Freight customer service lied

I called corporate to confirm the policy on picking up old appliance after I paid the pick-up fee with the purchase of a new appliance. I was told that they couldn't put old appliances in the truck which was not true wanted to charge me a pick-up fee to put the old appliance on the curb. After this, they did not deliver on the promised date! Run! don't do business with this company they do not care about their customer

American Freight buyer beware

I wouldn't recommend purchasing from American freight, you have to pay on the warranty to replace your couch. i replaced my couch last year after having it less than a year because it fell apart, now this couch fell apart and after paying almost $1800 for a sectional, ottoman, and warranty they are willing to give me $799 store credit to replace a couch i paid almost $1800 for. its a headache and the furniture wont last the 5 year warranty you pay for. take your business else ware.

Update by Amber N.

I purchased a sectional, ottoman, and 5 year warranty from AMerican Freight in 2022, I had it replaced not even a year later because it fell apart, Here we are in 2024 i went to use my warranty to replace this sectional as it again fell apart. I paid $1795 for this sectional only to be told that i will get a credit of $799 to replace my sectional and ottoman. i purchased from your Frankfort Kentucky location and was told today I would only get $799 as a store credit, I was also told that Becky your store manager applied a $300 refund to my account in 2022 and i never received it, I was told refunds were not allowed, yet they say they have a recipt for doing so that never hit my account. my sectional has fallen apart twice now and i paid for a 5 year warranty how are you only providing a fraction of what i paid for this furniture? your district manager angie baez blocked me after asking questions and wondering why were being robbed here, this is not okay, i didnt pay almost $1800 for furniture form your store that doesnt hold up to " its promise" $799 doesnt even cover the cost of this couch or anything on your store website. how do you stand beind your word when you get treated this way?

I purchased a front load washer at a discount because it had small knicks and scratches in which I can deal with. Well when I went to pick it up there was a dent on the side that was not visible when I picked the washer up. I asked the rep at pick up will the dent cause any issue to the washer and he stated no but allow me to ask my store manager EL. Well...

American Freight Layaway given away

Order MKZ5GAEHM

Mattress and box spring and bed frame

I paid the layaway, I had all my paperwork where I had paid out the layaway and took awhile to pickup. I never received any notice about a storage fee or picking it up. I went in to have it delivered and was told it would cost me 100.00 dollars to have it delivered. i went back for pick up and was told it had already been picked up. I was given a date it had been picked but information about who picked up. I was only given customer service number to call where I can never get through.

Claimed loss: 503.09

Desired outcome: Please refund. I would like a response

American Freight Whirlpool stove top

Bought a whirlpool stove top on 2/23/24

Thinking its in good working condition

I hired an electrician to install it.

The stove turned out does not work

The large burner knob doesn’t work properly. One of the burners doesn’t come on at all no heat nothing

I returned it to the same location

Allen is the one who sold it to me. He was kinda rude from the beginning did mot care to explain anything that was at purchase time. Once I took it back he still have the same careless attitude. He show no remorse toward the issue. He just pointed a finger at the otter stoves saying go look at other ones.

Desired outcome: Need to refund the electrician fee due to a non working equipment

American Freight Mattress

I ordered a mattress. for the Black Friday sale, I was Directed to pick it up from the location 37055 Groesbeck Hwy, Clinton Township 48036, When I arrived at the store the associate apologized.

I purchased the L616 Maverick Motion leather sofa from you a little over a year ago and, after purchasing the warranty, delivery and taxes, paid over $1100.00 for it. I hoped, after spending this much money, that this couch would last me quite some time. I am not hard on my furniture at all. It is just me and two kids, ages 10 and 15. The 15 year old...

American Freight Item not delivered initially after refusal of upsell attempt for 79.99 mattress cover.

I've ordered over $4000 worth of merchandise from your store in the last month and was called and yelled at by your director of the store Reggie due to me changing my mind about purchasing a mattress cover that he tried to upsell. I almost canceled over a 1600.00 order due to his disrespect. Coincidently my King mattress that was at the store onsite was not on the delivery truck for at the time of my scheduled delivery.

American Freight Furniture/bed/desk top

I bought an entire bedroom set in late November of 2022 from the Columbia, SC, Atlas road, American Freight store, we even purchased the five year protection plan. Since we have bought our new set and within seven months time, the bed is falling apart from defects, the night stand is also peeling apart on the top. The headboard screws have ripped out and the wood has split, which has now caused serious back issues for me, I am a disabled Navy veteran to add, which they understand and know since it is in the paperwork which we have, they have refused to address these issues with us, I have filled out forms for this online, uploaded pictures and videos, called numerous numbers, been caught in a tick, tack, toe game in the phone system. This company has displayed to us in a variety of ways to tire out the complaining consumer in hopes that they will just go away. They will create a false illusion your issue is being taken care of and schedule a technician, which never shows up and never will, even after you call back over and over again, no number to this tech either, take your lumps and move on, Don't buy from them ever, it will just cause you anxiety and heartache from doing so.

Desired outcome: Refund/replacement

American Freight Furniture

We purchased a couch and loveseat recliners and we paid for a five year warranty. We called to make a claim on our furniture it is staing and the material is wearing out to soon and recliners are loose. They ask you to make a claim online but they only allow minimum selection on what the damage is. Then they email you back denying your claim . We paid extra for the warranty and expect American Freight to give us the warranty we paid for. Be careful when you purchase anything from here they are not honest about warranties.

American Freight Warranty

GE frontload washer broke we filed a claim [protected] 5-2-23. Tech from Antech Appliance came 5-4, said he reset everything & left didn't stay to clear. 10mins later it stopped. Called Antech they said we had to wait. Called AF they made a new claim [protected] & sent out another tech from Supreme Appliance. Tech came 5-6 & said bad controller. His name was Daniel & he said he needed to have 2 techs to replace controller & was going to charge us 200.00. We said we have no copay & it should be covered. He said okay but will take 5 days to get part. We were finally able to have techs out to replace controller on 5-27 they could only come out on a Saturday is why they told us we had to wait. Daniel came with another tech they replaced the board, left the old & left. they also wouldn't wait for it to run a cycle. It stopped 5mins after they left. We have video. We tried to contact Supreme & no one answered phone or email or text. We then called AF back & they issued 3rd claim & sceduled us a tech with Supreme for 5-30. We received a text & email from Supreme for a tech 5-29. Daniel showed back up & said it needs a new board. He will have to order & doesn't have a date of return or paperwork for us. That is the last contact we have ever had with Supreme. We have emailed repeatedly & called. We contacted AF again 6-1 & they said we need to contact Supreme. We had to explain all over what has been happening & the 1st trouble has never been fixed regardless of how many claims. For [protected] Bianca reluctantly agreed to issue the 50.00 7-day service guarantee by mail. Called again & asked when claims dept will be getting this replaced or fixed. We have spoken every other day since & no 2 stories are the same. One rep told us claims dept has to review, another told us it said we refused service from Supreme, not true. Another told us claims will call & it was escalated. Then we were told they see where we didn't refuse service & he escalated again. We were told to give it a couple more days for claims to call, they had decided to replace but claims has to call us first & to expect an email. I waited then this afternoon I was told again it says we refused, which we didn't. They said claims manager Alan was supposed to call didn't we have a voicemail? no we have not received any calls or voicemail. She said we would receive a call from Alan on Monday. We have been without a washer over a month. This is unacceptable. I filed a complaint with BBB after that call. I will say the reps I spoke to (except Bianca) were very professional & polite, however they can't do anything but note the claim. Just a waste of time/ we have video of washer after each repair person left.

Desired outcome: We would like the washer replaced. We no longer have trust in Supreme. They seemed shifty trying to charge us on the side & saying they don't provide any paper trail

American Freight Horrible treatment

The other day me and my son after looking online and seeing that they had appliances needed a dryer because ours had broken. We went through American Freight and as soon as we walked in the place looked gross and unorganized and there's just random people screwed about not one person approached us said hello I'll be right with you nothing. Moving forward I walk almost all the way to the very back of the store after looking at the two appliances up front and I see a man walking out of the back very large man I asked him excuse me I noticed online that you so dryers would you direct me to the area where your appliances are he then responds with a sigh and says we don't really have those nor hope we ever really sold those so I'm not sure why that's on there I said well it's on your website and that's the reason I came here today was to get this exact one that's listed on your website which basically means that it is false advertisement that they claim that they have things that they don't and that they're available and ready to go and delivery etc etc not only do they not offer delivery because apparently the delivery dude quit forever ago and it's been an issue ever since then but this man never wants apologized or anything and claimed that they whoever they are I guess whoever runs your website needed to correct that that they don't sell dryers or that he wasn't selling dryers so I don't understand how a corporate store can just determine from place to place what specifically they're going to carry even though it is marked online on the commercials and in person so I never once got an apology or anything and I don't know why he treated me so s* but we ended up leaving without so much as I'm sorry or thank you or any kind of help at all even a redirection completely upset and disgusted with how he treated us we went to Lowe's down the street spent almost $1,000 which could have been spent at that store guess they didn't want our money and not only did I get what I wanted right then and there they offered free delivery and took my old one away so at this point I absolutely want to go on record and say that American Freight especially here in Hagerstown is the absolute worst s* hole I've ever been to in my life and I've never ever had anyone especially someone who is some sort of supervisor and only person on the floor treat me that badly and I will never be going back I already have posted online a review and have been sharing this information with as many people as I can possibly share this with because it is absolutely horrendous that my money is not welcome there and that even though it's listed on there he never wants apologize for this blame someone else for his shortcomings and was rude and nasty to me and I ended up having to go to another place to find what I needed and get the correct help that I deserved

Desired outcome: Atleast an apology or the site corrected but honestly I want that place closed down bad enough u feel like ur gonna be raped in the parking lot there

American Freight Mattress

I had purchased a mattress and box spring a few days ago and I set it up and let it sit for hours before me and my girlfriend laid down. When we did you could feel the spring in mattress popping up and making sound's I went back to store today and was instructed by manager to file a complaint. I didn't know that the mattress was going to be wrapped up like a rug so we would like to get another set. If the springs come through and me or my girlfriend gets hurt we will talk to a lawyer. I'm sorry for any inconveniences. We purchased at the wilkes barre store

Desired outcome: just to get another set and if a better set is a little more money.i will add to it.but I'm not paying another delivery fee

American Freight Bedroom set and sectional

I purchased a sectional, king size bed, king size mattress and chest to match the bed last July. I was currently living out of state but would be relocating to Ocala Florida mid august. The day I arrived at my new home, I went to American freight to pick out my mattress and pay for assembly of the furniture. I was told that I shouldnt waste my money on the assembly due to it being a simple job. Glad I did because it took them 2 hours to assemble the bed. I have had nothing but problems with the service and the furniture. The bed makes so much noise when you sleep on the bed that it is hard to get a good nights rest. Some of the slats on the bed, didnt even have screws in them. I have added some screws since then. The drawer on the headboard had a big scratch on it and so did the chest that matched. The told me they would be out the next day with a new chest and a new drawer for the headboard. They did not show up for 2 days and it was 10 p.m. when they got there. I had to make then unbox the chest. They said it wasnt their responsiblity. I told them I had paid for assembly and I wanted it unboxed. Then the couch kept sliding apart. Upon examination of the product, we discovered that the couch was broke and could not be connected, therefore it kept sliding apart. A technician came and drilled holes and had to replace the wood because the existing wood was so soft that he could not us it. The store told me that they were giving me a warranty that was good for 5 years and that I would not have any problems. The bed is still loud and the couch doesnt line up right since it has been "fixed". I have reached out to the store but I am told that if the manufacturer doesnt fix it, then there is nothing that can be done. I have left messages for Mike and he never returns my call. I spent right at $5000 in that store and the product is not good at all. There are other issues with the couch and the drawers on the foot of the bed wont work right. I wish I had done more research on products at American Freight before I purchased anything from there. I am very displeased and feel I have received subpar furniture for a high price. I paid for assembly and it wasnt even done correctly. I could go on but I hope you can understand my feeling in regard to the quality of product and service that I have received.

Desired outcome: I would like monetary compensation and a response please

American Freight Maytag washer

I recently purchased a maytag washer & dryer from american freight on n florida avenue, and less than a month the washer will not turn on, no power, checked the plug, power source from plug is working.Contacted the location where purchase was made, spoke to a gentleman, that was later identified (only after asking for the manager, to be the manager) never giving his name. I later found out through search that the manager at this location is roman. He stated that he would check to see if he had another washer to switch out, if not he would have to call service, after 40 minutes & not hearing from him I called back, he stated, he couldn’t locate one and I would have to call service. I then asked if the service was covered, stated that maytag would let me know. This is where the conversation went left, he said since I did’t purchase the extended warranty that I would have to pay whatever the cost was. I asked him how do that make sense when the machine is less than a month old, we went back and forth for several more minutes, until I asked for someone over him, which he gave me an number [protected] which no one answered or called back, then I also called the service number [protected] which only operates monday thru friday. I just want an working washer.

American Freight Warranty

I purchased a couch and loveseat, 3 piece table, and two bedroom sets with 5 year warranty on 6/23/2020. Online at guardian only the 3 piece tables are listed for this warranty. I have been trying to make a claim to get new furniture and being told that Guardian isn’t excepting any updates to the warranties and no one knows how long it’ll be before they are. Someone needs to be upfront with the customers because we paired our money for these warranties and shouldn’t have to be inconvenienced.

Desired outcome: I would like to file a claim for my furniture and have it fulfilled in a timely manner

American Freight Sofa purchased in April 2022

Order #MLTOPY0UR

Purchased a sofa in April 2022, within a few months, the fabric started to deteriorate and pill, and one section seemed to be breaking down. Filed a claim and they sent our a guy with a sweater shaver who spent 2 hours shaving the sofa, which only served to further deteriorate the fabric. They said they'd replace the one section, but closed the case and refuse to talk to us. Since then, the section in question has cracked and it appears there are no springs in it, per the video attached. We are very disappointed in the quality of both the furniture and the customer service. The only answer is s full refund at this point, there should be no reason why a couch that is less than a year old should be in this shape.

Timeline:

Claim submitted 11/4/2022

Assigned tech on 11/7/2022

The technician came in December

PO for replacement on 12/21 to replace armless loveseat

On 12/27 we submitted a note saying we are not happy with results, and want a full refund

1/17/2023 contact store for assistance.

We DO NOT want this sofa, there is no way a new section is going to add any life to the faulty workmanship and poor quality and we want a full refund.

Desired outcome: Full refund is the only acceptable option.
