We purchased premium Stainmaster carpet (near the very top of the price line) from Home Depot about six months ago, and it stains far worse in a matter of months than the carpet we removed which was fifteen years old. Things which normally did not stain our old carpet (like plain old dirt) stain the new carpet. Stain removal products which worked on our old carpet don't work on the new "Stainmaster" carpet. The carpet is essentially worthless, and we believe we have wasted $5, 000. They should call this carpet "StainEasy" for honesty in advertising!

Last Father's Day my daughter purchased a $40 gift card for me at Home Depot. I lost it before I had a chance to use it. With my daughter's receipt of purchase in hand I explained to the local store that I lost the card. They refused to replace it saying that there was no way they could trace whether or not the card had been used. I wrote to the store manager and the company CEO explaining my loss including a copy of my daughter's receipt, but neither of them has responded to my registered letter. Beware of purchasing a gift card from Home Depot: Do not lose it or you will be out!

I was in line for 45 min! When I got to the checkout the lady told me that I wrote the wrong #'s down for a code on the wire I cut. The problem is I didn't cut it and I didn't write the code down. Another employee from the store did. I had to go back and find the correct code and stand in line again! Terrible service! ...Then again when i got to the checkout they forgot to put the wire in the bag. When I got home I was furrious! I called and nobody knew nothing. I went down and talked to the manager where he pretty much gave me a new wire and that was it. I feel like he didn't do anything special to make me want to shop there again. What a joke! I just sent them a letter using www.complaintsmailed.com that should arrive on their steps soon. I hope they listen to the letter! The last one i sent to the airlines worked well.
Went to Home Depot to purchase installed carpet. I had measured 36 Sq yds. Person sent to measure came up...
I have recently been shopping around for tile and bath tubs. I have gone into Home Depot more than once and I must say, I am VERY happy that I have not bought anything from them. First of all, even if I did want to buy anything from them I couldn't because no one would help me. Apparently my money is not good enough! Also in the past my husband had to yell "Can anyone help me" at the top of his lungs to get someone to stop and ask him if he needed any help. Yesterday we were in Home Depot looking at bath tubs, and after looking for some one who worked there for 10 minutes found a nice young man. He was very informative but not in bath tubs. He let us know that he had no clue about warrenties, installation ect. In fact he told us he didn't really care because hockey season is starting soon and he was much more interested in that. The one lady that he found for us that did know something about the bath tub we were interested in left us to find out some information and never came back. As we were leaving the store we saw her chatting with other customers. I know we are a young couple (24 years old) but we know how to save money for things we want and that day we had money to spend that we have saved. I am glad to know that Home Depot will NEVER get a cent out of my pockets.
First, the Sales Guy in Major Appliances was excellent and handled this to the best of his ability, as with two managers within the store.
Order placed on Boxing Day 2007, first thing in the morning. Delivery date set for Thursday January 3rd, 2008. Delivery company calls on Friday Dec 29th to confirm delivery for 2-6PM on Thursday, January 3rd.
Day is taken off, 6PM shows up and nobody is there. Calls to store, Leon (sales guy) and a manager get on the horn with the delivery company. The delivery company says "All items on the truck are out for delivery, call back if it isn't here by 10PM). Ok, HD is closed at 10PM. Nice. Call back at 9:30pm, say "Where is everything" - same manager says she will leave a note for Leon to deal with this at 8AM on Friday January 4th.
Another day taken off. Lucky I have a bit of spare vacation this year.
Leon says the delivery company said they came by the house at 11AM on January 3rd and nobody was home. First: Total horse pucks, as we were home and nobody, absolutely NOBODY came by the house that morning (aside from the Postman). Second: Call display logs indicate that nobody called that day from the delivery company. Ok, so they don't have to call - but you think that is they were showing up three hours earlier than expected than they might do a COURTESY call and say "Hey, we're going to be in the area, can we stop by early?".
Leon gets this escalated through no less than 20 phone calls to / from the delivery company. We end up calling the delivery company directly after Leon, and they say they don't know where it is or how to get in touch with the drivers of the truck it is on (yeah, right - this is the day AFTER it is to be delivered).
I tell them that this is is total baloney, this is day #2 that I've had to take off, they've clearly lied or at best, misrepresented their situation to us, and that this was to be fixed today and to get a special truck out this afternoon. End of discussion.
Well guess what shows up? A truck, small, with my appliances. Mind you this is four hours later, around 3PM in the afternoon. Driver wants to drop them off in the driveway and leave them there for the two movers to come put them in. Yeah right. Got on the phone with the manager at HD and the delivery company and told them to keep the guy there, which they did.
Anyways, once they showed up, all was good. But thats a wasted full day of vacation that they CONFIRMED they were showing up on (and never did, despite their "we showed up early" claims), and one more FULL day again with a special delivery that they said they couldn't do.
Long story short: Not REALLY Home Depot's DIRECT problem, and granted, they seemed to be putting pressure on the company from their end, but Home Depot's major problem is they just don't really take OWNERSHIP of the problem, we should not have had to call the delivery company once, but we did. Basically, once they get the money, they are pretty much "oh well, it's their problem".
They need to start firing their contrators/agencies/suppliers... seriously. This is the LAST time I would ever buy anything from them that required delivery.
(On that note, I am returning my extended warranties under the 90 day no questions asked return policy, seriously, if this is how delivery is, how is their extended support going to be?)
My wife and I purchased a refrigerator in a home depot store, it was delivered on Thursday (May 1, 2008). On Wednesday (April 30, 2008) we ordered online a washer and dryer.
Well when the refrigerator was delivered the guys didn't level the refrigerator, therefore, when they tried to push it into the opening (a tight fit, but a fit none the less) it wouldn't fit. So after 15 minutes of removing molding and trying to get the fridge in there my wife told to leave. When I arrived home, it took me 30 seconds to figure out the problem was the fridge was not leveled so it was leaning about a 3/4 of inch from bottom to top and thus i had to level it to get it to fit.
So then on thursday evening we got a call about the delivery of our washer and dryer that were purchased online. They said they would deliver on Friday (May 2, 2008) from 8 to 12:00 PM. Well we explained this time would not work, but the lady said well that's what time we had and if we weren't home then they would call us to re-schedule. excuse me? You tell me when you're gonna deliver? There was no option online for instore pick up or delivery option of morning or afternoon. Simply you are told what time by the delivery company. So I called at lest 6 different phone numbers and talk to about 11 or 12 people in home depot only to find out from everyone one of them, that there is nothing they can do about it. They all said sorry, but there is nothing else that can be done. So in other words buy your stuff through us but good luck actually getting it! So my lesson learned no more buying anything through Home Depot. I'm done giving them my business after spending more than $5, 000 with them!
A little less two years ago we purchased a set of GE Adora stackable Washer and Dryer about Six months after purchase the washer started acting up when it would drain and spin it would just run away with itsself and sounded like a jet plane coming thru the house and it would not spin the water out of a small load clothes items were still dripping wet when cycle was done A tech came out and told my wife this was normal and that these washers were not designed to do small loads needless to say two months out of warranty the pump and Mother Board went out after about eight weeks in the shop we finally agreed to pay for labor and service charge and GE supplied the parts to fix the washer since it was on record we had service out to look at it twice while it was still under warranty and they kept telling us nothing was wrong with it Well three months after being fixed it started acting up again with the same symptoms as the first time called a tech out and he said he couldn't find anything wrong well needless to say three more months The washer has quit again same as first time I've tried to get them to replace it since its obviously has a problem that just replacing parts is not going to fix GE wants us to pay labor again and they supply parts I'm not throwing more money in this machine with its traCk record So we are out a 800 dollar machine after less than 2 years and we have to find another that will accept the dryer on top and it won't be a GE I think a Whirlpool will work but I advise anyone to avoid GE appliance because all their interested in is the sale not their product reputation.

I ordered a washer on line with Home Depot on 5/24/08. Its a Maytag Bravos Energy Star 4.6 cubic Ft washer.
I charged it on the home depot card. Since it was sales tax free week-end and the washer was on also sale, it was a good deal. Regular price $949 on sale for $854.10. + $59 delivery + no tax.
I chose the delivery date during the order which was to be on 5/30/08.
The day before delivery depot called and rescheduled delivery for two weeks later.
Two weeks later depot called that morning to give me the delivery time, thats when they said they were delivering a refrigerator---(I purchased a washer)
Customer Service then told me that it would be another three weeks because the washer was out of stock. She began telling me that I should check our local Home Depot. I told her that I ordered on line, I preferred not going to a store. She called the store herself then called me back leaving a voice message saying that the store only had one floor model which is beat-up, but I can keep checking back with them. And thats it!!!
Today is July 23, 2008 and I still do not have my new washer. My husband has also tried to get the washer but all we have gotten is the run around and yesterday we just recieved a refund of the charge for the refrigerator that we did not order and did not authorize charge for.

On May 30, 2008 I went to Home Depot for carpet installation estimate. I was told that I have to pay $35 for measurement, I thought that was fair so I paid the $35. It took a week for the estimator to come and measure the house and a few more days to get the measurement to Home Depot. They did not have the carpet in stock, I was told that it will be there in a week, so I went ahead and paid for the carpet, padding, installation, etc. Although I paid for the measurement, they won't give me a copy of the layout. Three weeks later, they finally got the carpet but nobody called me, I had to come to the store to check. I was promised that someone will call me in a couple of days. The installer called me 4 days later, telling me that he can't install the carpet for another 18 days (July 28, 2008)! I started the process 2 months ago and I don't have my carpet yet, and who knows what else comes up during the installation, if it ever gets installed! I tried to cancel, but I was told I will have to pay a 15% re-stocking charge. This is ridiculous - I won't wish this on anyone and won't recommend Home Depot Carpet Installation.

Three weeks ago, I purchased a new Maytag washing machine from Home Depot. At that time, there was a Maytag-sponsored promotion (funded by Home Depot) in which rebates in the form of Home Depot gift cards would be sent to buyers who made qualifying purchases of select models. The amounts were from $25 up to $250, depending on model.
I made the purchase (the gift card, by the way, was not one of the factors, by the way), submitted the rebate request online, and received the $25 Home Depot gift card a few days ago.
Today, I went to Home Depot to get a few items and attempted to pay for the purchase with the gift card. The total amount of the purchase was $21. The gift card was rejected.
According to the cashier, there was no available balance on it. Even a call to the store manager couldn't get the thing to work -- despite the fact that the sticker covering the PIN had been removed BY THE CASHIER, so they KNOW I hadn't used it before this. The cashier said I needed to contact the issuer of the card (which is ridiculous because it's issued by HOME DEPOT).
I tried to call the customer service number listed on the letter that had carried the card, but all it is is a "status" number -- there is no support for complaints or inquiries.
