Sears Online Appliance Purchase / sears bait and switch

1 IL, United States

Do yourself a favor and buy your appliances at yard sales before dealing with Sears! Purchased a new refrigerator on-line since the in-store service is no longer appealing but would have liked to have continued my 25 year relationship with the company. However, apparently "next day delivery" means different things to the consumer and Sears. Shopping online, purchasing online and scheduling delivery went smooth as could be. The only problem is that they didn't deliver. After sitting home all day waiting for the truck to arrive, the phone rings at the last minute of the "delivery window" only to say that they're not coming. Uh, really? Didn't need the call to know that. Best yet, they have no idea when the appliance will be available but will call back in 24-48 hours to try to reschedule. Tried to call Customer Service - what a JOKE! Spent 2 1/2 hours on the phone mostly on hold, being transferred around endlessly and actually hung up on TWICE! In two cases the "customer service representative" wouldn't even provide their name or employee number - and one of those was a "supervisor". Out of frustration I asked for a refund only to be told that Sears refund policy requires "7 to 8 business days" to process. How can they process debit transactions instantaneously but credits take a week? Sorry Sears, never, ever again...
