Wowcher Never again! Wowcher adventure 001

We purchased and booked a helicopter ride with Adventure 001 via Wowcher. The flight was cancelled due to maintenance and conditions. The only available alternatives were just after the validity period of the voucher. We called to check this would be okay and booked. Then weeks before then flight they call us to say don't turn up. Wowcher won't pay us and they've pocketed your fee. Neither company will resolve.

Helicopter Voucher Invalid

We were gifted a helicopter ride with Adventure 001 via Wowcher. They have just cancelled my reservation as Wowcher have apparently not being paying them.

Adventure 001 cancelled the initial flight. Rebooking was made with limited availability. Then cancelled saying Wowcher won't pay them.

This model absolutely doesn't work. Helicopter rides in short supply get cancelled through no fault of the customer and promises are made to honour bookings at a later date. Then a payment problem with Wowcher occurs and the customer has lost their money?

Both companies are blaming each other and shunning responsibility.

Wowcher responded by saying a refund has been provided which is completely false.

Wowcher What a nightmare

Bought and paid for some items, including delivery, on wowcher two days ago and when I reached out to them earlier as I had not been sent any receipts, they said I didn't pay for the items and that I cannot get a refund! Whereas my bank statements certainly show the transaction and so does my wowcher account..

They also signed me up last year for some credit thing from which they deducted all the money from my wallet and for this they have no response or apologies! Unbelievable.

Things seems cheap till you have to pay for the extra services charges and delivery (which could take a month despite paying for it). Not worth it.

Customer care confused, giving mixed and unclear messages and are pretty rude. They sent me a form to pay again for an item which I paid for delivery a month ago ... when I asked where it was!

Never using them again.

Wowcher Scam

I purchased a wowcher for a 2 course meal and a comedy show with drinks. So I book a hotel in London as we live in Northamptonshire. Pay a small fortune in train fares. Arrive at the venue to be told we are the only ones booked and they weren't putting the comedy on. We left and I am flaming furious! What will be done as far as a refund is concerned and paying towards our totally unnecessary expenses? First time I've ever used wowcher and what a sham!

ÀVOID AT ALL COSTS. DONT JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT JUST LOOK AT WOWCHER REVIEWS. SPEND YOUR HARD EARNED CASH SOMEWHERE ELSE AND SAVE YOURSELF THE HASSLE WITH THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE IVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. IMPOSSIBLE TO SPEAK WITH A HUMAN AND GET ANYTHING RESOLVED SO FAR

Wowcher Nightmare Experience with Wowcher and Hermes: Lost Parcel and No Accountability

My experience with Wowcher (wowcher.com) has been nothing short of a nightmare. I purchased two bedding items from the website in September, only to find out that the quality was extremely poor upon arrival. Left with no other option, I decided to return the items using the recommended courier, Hermes. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse as the items ended up getting lost in transit.

From that point onwards, I found myself having to deal with both Wowcher and Hermes in an effort to resolve the issue. Despite incontrovertible evidence that I had sent the return and the courier had lost the parcel, neither of the companies were willing to take any accountability or provide me with a solution. Every time I contacted their customer service, I was met with nothing but frustration and disappointment. I was constantly asked for the same information over and over again, with no resolution in sight.

It's a huge disappointment that Wowcher and Hermes seem to be turning a blind eye to this kind of problem. It makes me wonder how they can continue to operate this way and still expect people to use their services without any issue.

I would strongly recommend avoiding Wowcher and Hermes, especially if you have any issues at all. Dealing with them is extremely frustrating and trying to get a resolution is borderline impossible. The time and effort I put in trying to sort out the issue myself was not worth the monetary value of the products I had ordered. I will definitely never be using them again.

Wowcher Disappointing Experience with Wowcher: Inconsistent Policies and Poor Customer Service

I recently made a purchase on Wowcher.com and was disappointed with the entire experience. While placing the order, I was only asked to make a single payment, but once the item arrived, I was informed that I needed to pay additional fees for delivery. When I received the package, I was dismayed to find that it was open, damaged and few parts were missing.

Although the merchant was understanding and sympathetic to my situation, my interactions with Wowcher's customer service team were frustrating and unhelpful. I was told by the company that they do not charge delivery fees, while the merchant confirmed that they were charged. This inconsistency left me feeling confused and uncertain about the entire transaction.

I attempted to communicate with Wowcher via WhatsApp, but the responses were delayed and unhelpful. When I requested an email confirmation of their delivery fee policy, they suddenly offered me a credit to my wallet. While I appreciated the gesture, I still requested a refund and escalated the situation, but my call was cut off before I could complete the request.

Since then, I have made three additional attempts to communicate with Wowcher, but each time my message is redirected back to the merchant and I am asked to complete a survey. This endless loop has left me feeling frustrated and disappointed in the level of customer service that Wowcher provided.

To make matters worse, I now have £20 in my wallet that must be used within the next few months or I lose it altogether. While this may seem like a clever business tactic on Wowcher's part, in reality, it feels unprofessional and borderline fraudulent.

Overall, my experience with Wowcher has left me feeling unsatisfied and unwilling to do business with them again. The less-than-ideal quality of the product, combined with the poor customer service, has led me to look elsewhere for my future purchases.

Wowcher Wowcher Review: Frustrating Experience with Poor Customer Service & Inefficiencies

I recently had an experience with Wowcher (wowcher.com) that left me frustrated and disappointed. While the products I ordered were ultimately satisfactory, the process of dealing with Wowcher itself was riddled with obstacles and inefficiencies.

Firstly, I ordered two items at once and was dismayed to find that Wowcher required me to use individual vouchers for each item - this meant I had to pay separate mailing costs, despite the fact that the items were being sent from the same place to the same place. I found this to be an unnecessary hassle and a plain waste of money.

To add insult to injury, I attempted to contact Wowcher via WhatsApp regarding a separate issue and was disappointed to find that their customer service response time was not as advertised. I was promised a response within 24 hours, and when I did receive a reply (two hours late), I unfortunately missed the one-hour deadline to respond. This resulted in my query being closed and further frustration on my part.

I also found it troubling that Wowcher seemed to go to great lengths to avoid standard communication methods such as phone or email - instead, they heavily rely on WhatsApp as their primary method of contact. As someone who is not a user of the App, it was not a convenient option for me and made resolving any issues more difficult.

Lastly, I was disappointed to find that deleting my account from their system was not a straightforward process. Apparently, the only way to do so is via WhatsApp, or by scouring their website for a phone number or email address. This felt like another unnecessary hurdle to overcome as a customer.

Overall, my experience with Wowcher left me feeling like their customer service practices were designed to make things difficult for the customer. While I was ultimately able to resolve my issues, it was frustrating and felt like more of a hassle than it should have been. I hope that Wowcher takes steps to improve their communication and customer service protocols moving forward.

Wowcher Get Your Money Back: How to Take Wowcher.com to Small Claims Court

Have you ever been left feeling ignored and frustrated by Wowcher.com? Well, fear not as there is a way to get noticed and get your money back! If they owe you money and aren't responding to your emails or calls, it may be time to take them to small claims court. Although it may cost you initially, the end result could be well worth it.

The government website, Gov.co.uk, offers helpful tips on how to proceed with a small claims case. For a fee, you can start a claim which Wowcher will have to reimburse if you win. The amount you need to pay depends on the size of your claim, but if it's significant enough, Wowcher will also have to pay interest on top.

For those who are tired of being ignored and don't want to wait any longer for a response, this could be the perfect solution. Making a small claims case against Wowcher will not only get you the refund you deserve, but show them that poor customer service has consequences. The more people that use this service, the more likely Wowcher will be to address customer issues and improve their service.

So take the first step, and claim your refund! Good luck.

Wowcher Warning: Stay Away from Wowcher - Dishonest Practices & Poor Customer Service

I recently had a very negative experience with Wowcher and I feel compelled to warn others about this website. In January 2021, I made a purchase for a hose pipe, but unfortunately, it was not delivered within a reasonable timeframe. I decided to follow up on the delivery and was informed that I needed to redeem a voucher to actually buy the item again in order for it to be delivered. The voucher allegedly expired on February 16th, so I wasn't able to receive a refund either. I was extremely disappointed and felt that this was a dishonest way of doing business.

The website itself is quite complex, and there is so much information scattered all over the place. It's easy to get confused and miss the small print, which I believe is intentional on their part. This leaves customers feeling cheated, and it seems like the company is trying to scam people out of their hard-earned money.

To make matters worse, the customer service department was completely unhelpful with my situation. There was no empathy or concern, and I was left feeling completely disregarded. In my opinion, Wowcher's customer service is lacking, and they don't seem to care about their customers' satisfaction.

All of these issues have led me to the conclusion that Wowcher is a scam, and I will never use their services again. As the saying goes, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. I urge everyone to think twice before making a purchase on Wowcher, and if you do decide to use their services, proceed with caution. I plan to write reviews about my experience wherever I can to help others avoid similar situations. As a final step, I'm reporting this company to trading standards in hopes that they will be held accountable for their actions.

Wowcher Wowcher Review: Deceptive Discounts, Sub-Standard Goods and Disappointing Customer Service. Avoid at All Costs!

Wowcher is an online platform that can be likened to an auction site, but without the rating and refund system. With Wowcher, consumers buy discount vouchers for goods or services from a variety of sellers, with no guarantees of quality or customer service. This practice is a recipe for disaster, as they stand to lose their money without any recourse.

This reviewer had a negative experience with Wowcher, where they were lured into buying two cheaply made garden hoses made in China using clever marketing and after enjoying a "discount" from £26.99 to £9.99. They tried to contact the "merchant" but received no response. After complaining, Wowcher refunded the cost in the form of a credit that was valid for only three months, excluding the £6.00 postage. They used the credit to purchase towels, which never arrived, despite being told that they were lost in transit. After another credit refund, they bought some bath sheets reduced from £46.99 to £18.99 but were disappointed in their quality. The thickness was like that of a tea cloth, and the towels were much smaller than a £2.50 bath towel from a cheap supermarket. The photos of the products on Wowcher were misleading, and the towels the reviewer received were not the ones on the manufacturer's website. Authentic towels on the manufacturer's website cost £19.99, compared to the £49.99 price tag on Wowcher. This is a classic case of diminishing returns, as the reviewer kept losing money in postage whenever they returned the products.

The discounts on Wowcher are deceptive, and the goods offered are sub-standard. Merchants on the platform are not governed by consumer protection laws, and buyers have no guarantee of refunds or exchanges. Shoppers looking for genuine bargains would do well to avoid Wowcher and stick to reputable online and offline stores. Wowcher can't be trusted!

Wowcher Wowcher Mystery Gift offer: A Scam or Misleading Deal?

I recently purchased the Wowcher Mystery Gift offer with my boyfriend on Black Friday. For only ?10, we could receive a gift from a list of top brand items including an HD TV, Echo Dot, a refurbished iPhone 6, and a PS4. I was excited to see what we would receive and I wouldn't have minded receiving any of the gifts on the list. We ended up buying three of these Mystery Gifts, with the hope that at least one of us will receive a great gift. Unfortunately, when we opened our gifts, we both received the same Star Wars battery operated 3D deco light, like something you'd see in a Poundland store. It was clear that the gift did not live up to our expectations and didn't seem to match any of the top brand items.

At this point, we thought to see if the second gift we purchased would be better, but it didn't even arrive, adding more disappointment to our experience. This means we spent ?30 in total and only received two Poundland quality items, which we wouldn't even want to give to our own nephews, let alone keep for ourselves.

I am quite convinced that we are not the only ones who have received such a low-quality item. I am highly doubtful that I will be able to get a refund due to the negative reviews that I've seen about their complaints and returns department. Therefore, I will be sharing my opinions on forums all over this site until I get my purchases refunded. I hope everyone who has been scammed by this "deal" can also get their money refunded as well.

I highly recommend that people avoid purchasing deals of this nature from Wowcher. If Wowcher aims to build a successful business, they should remove these types of deals entirely. Customers want to have confidence that they are receiving quality products for their money, and not being misled into receiving Poundland quality toys.

Wowcher Disappointing Customer Service Experience with Wowcher.com: A Review

I recently had the unfortunate experience of placing an order on Wowcher.com and I must say, I was thoroughly disappointed with the level of customer service and the way my order was handled. My order was for a black item that came in two boxes, but what I received was one in black and one in gray. I found this to be quite unacceptable as the color of the items was clearly marked on the boxes.

I immediately attempted to call their customer service line but was informed that they were not currently taking calls due to the pandemic. My next step was to try live chat, but even then, I was told that they were unable to assist me and suggested that I contact their customer service team via email as it was the only way to get in touch with them.

After numerous emails back and forth and waiting for 48 hours for replies, I was finally told that they would pick up the wrong box and replace it with the right one. However, when it was time for them to pick up the box, they did not show up which only added to my frustration. As a result, I had to spend three different days waiting at home for my order to be picked up and to receive the correct item.

Although I have been promised a credit on my account, I was not satisfied with their solution and requested a full refund to be paid directly to my bank account. Their response was not in line with my expectations and I was left feeling angry and frustrated. I was also disappointed to find out that the refund process requires them to collect the item, which I found to be an inconvenience.

In conclusion, my experience with Wowcher.com has been extremely disappointing and I would not recommend their services to anyone in the future. Their customer service is terrible, and I was appalled at the way they handled my order. I would rather pay more and get better service from a more reliable source. Save yourself the hassle and shop elsewhere.

Wowcher Wowcher.co.uk: Disgusting customer service and refusal to refund gift vouchers. Stay away!

My experience with wowcher.co.uk was the worst I have ever had with an online retailer. I received a gift voucher from a friend for an experience, but unfortunately, I was unable to attend. Wowcher would not provide a refund, and instead, they offered to credit my wowcher wallet for future use. I agreed to this and created an account for this purpose.

A few months later, I ordered an item using the credit on my wowcher wallet. The item was meant to arrive on the 12th of December, just in time for Christmas, but it never did. I contacted wowcher, and they instructed me to contact the merchant directly. After doing so, the merchant informed me that the order had been lost in transit and provided a full refund.

I decided to try placing another order in January, hoping for a better experience. Unfortunately, it was the same story - the order never arrived. I contacted the merchant again, who informed me that it was lost in transit, and offered a full refund. However, when I received an email from wowcher regarding the refund, I was shocked to see that they only provided a credit refund of ?2.73, despite the fact that the order included a non-refundable credit amount of ?22.76.

I reached out to wowcher and the merchant to inquire about the non-refundable credit, but received no response. This is a disgusting level of customer service and attitude towards customers. Looking at other reviews similar to mine, it appears that this is the norm for wowcher - hoping that customers will not make a fuss over small refunds. As a result, I have decided to leave this review on every website where their name appears to warn others not to use them.

Wowcher Wowcher.com Review: A Cautionary Tale for Consumers

Recently, a friend of mine who is a pensioner had a negative experience with wowcher.com. She purchased an item from the website but did not receive it even after six weeks. Upon contacting wowcher.com, she was made to wait for 37 hours supposedly in a queue on WhatsApp before receiving a response. The response she received was quite disappointing as it stated that her voucher was not redeemed in time and hence no delivery was arranged. Consequently, the voucher expired, and no refund was possible.

I stepped in to help my friend, but wowcher.com denied responsibility and even claimed that her email address did not match the one they had. This was quite surprising, but it did not end there. They demanded proof of payment, denied refunds were possible, and refused to acknowledge the Consumer Rights Act 2015 applied to them. I had to exchange 69 messages via WhatsApp, send seven emails and enlist the help of Martin Lewis's "Resolver" before they eventually refunded the money into her account after insisting they had already refunded her, which they had not.

I would like to stress that this review is not intended to condemn wowcher.com as a fraudulent company but to help people make their judgement based on their experience with the website. Their deals often seem too good to be true, and while they might be a legitimate company, cases like my friend's leave a lot to be desired, especially when most of their clients are ordinary working-class people who lack the experience or knowledge of consumer rights legislation. Many of the people who leave reviews on the website complain about similar experiences, suggesting that further investigation might be necessary.

Therefore, I urge anyone considering buying from wowcher.com to tread carefully, do their research and protect themselves from the possible risks involved. Please check out the various reviews on the internet before making any purchases, and feel free to share this message with others to help them make informed decisions.

Wowcher Unsatisfactory Experience with Wowcher - Delayed Refund and Misleading Product Condition

Dear Mr. Roland Bryan, Managing Director,

I felt compelled to reach out and share my experience with Wowcher. In my opinion, I cannot help but feel as if I was scammed. I purchased two new office/gaming chairs for Christmas and received them in January, only to find that they were in terrible condition with 8 missing parts. I immediately returned them with the hopes of receiving a refund. Unfortunately, it has been two months and I am still waiting for the promise of a refund.

To add insult to injury, I discovered that the chairs were not new at all. Inside each box, I found Hermes slips that detailed the previous returns from other customers. This left me feeling extremely disappointed and frustrated. I attempted to contact Wowcher's customer service but unfortunately, there is no phone number or valid email address available. I spent hours searching for a way to reach out through Facebook and Whatsapp to no avail.

I truly regret trusting Wowcher with my hard-earned money and will never do so again. I have already shared my unfortunate experience with family and friends and will continue to do so to ensure that they are aware of the potential risks of purchasing from Wowcher.

For your reference, these are the order numbers: [protected] and [protected]. I hope that the necessary actions will be taken to rectify this situation and prevent any future occurrences from happening to others.

Sincerely,

A dissatisfied customer

Wowcher Beware of Wowcher: Poor Quality Products and Unresponsive Customer Service

My experience with Wowcher was less than satisfactory. I had purchased a bed through their website, which turned out to be a pile of poor quality material. The company responsible for the bed, Durest Beds located in Shrewsbury, was equally unhelpful in addressing my concerns. When I had raised my complaint with Wowcher, I was simply advised to communicate with the bed supplier instead. Unfortunately, Durest Beds was highly unresponsive and dismissive of my grievances, and made it clear that they were unwilling to help.

To make matters worse, the advertisement for the bed had promised a 26cm memory foam mattress, but only 1 inch of memory foam was actually present. As a shopper, it is deeply concerning to see that Wowcher did not seem to do its due diligence in vetting the sellers it advertised for. Instead, it appears that Wowcher merely took its commission and hoped for the best. This cavalier attitude is highly disappointing, and leaves consumers like me to deal with the fallout of problematic transactions.

I have since reported both Wowcher and Durest Beds to trading standards, and would highly recommend anyone to avoid using either company in the future. Overall, my experience with Wowcher has left a bitter taste in my mouth, and I would caution others to think carefully before using their services.

Wowcher Product Review: "Disappointing Jumper Purchased Through Wowcher

Yesterday, I received the jumper that I purchased through Wowcher, and to say that I'm disappointed is quite an understatement. The product that arrived looks nothing like the image that was advertised on the website. In fact, I would go so far as to say that a child would struggle to fit into it, and the quality is abysmal. Despite being sold as "100% pure wool," it's quite clear that this is not the case. There were no labels indicating material composition, so I'm left in the dark about what this jumper is even made of.

To add insult to injury, one of the arms was a full four inches shorter than the other, making the entire garment unwearable. And let's not forget about the massive band around the bottom of the jumper. It's uneven and poorly sewn, making for an overall sloppy appearance.

When I purchased this jumper, it was advertised for ?40.00. I managed to snag it for ?11.99, but when you tack on ?3.99 for postage, it's not exactly a steal. In fact, I'm left feeling quite ripped off.

Initially, I considered donating the jumper to my local charity shop; after all, I'm a gift aider and always looking for ways to give back. But upon closer inspection, the jumper is so poorly made and unattractive that I don't even think they'd accept it.

Overall, I'm disappointed in both the product and Wowcher for allowing such a low-quality item to be sold under their name. It's a shame that the clothing company who produced this jumper would even think of passing it off as a legitimate product.

Wowcher Wowcher's Relentless Spam Emails: A Consumer Warning

When I first heard of Wowcher, I was excited to check it out. I had heard they offered some great deals on a variety of products and experiences. I downloaded the app on my iPhone, and was asked to provide my email address. However, I declined to give it and instead decided to proceed with my Apple ID. It was at this point that the problems began.

Ever since then, I have been bombarded with a relentless stream of unwanted spam emails. I cannot stress enough the sheer volume of spam that I have been receiving from Wowcher. It has become incredibly frustrating to see my inbox cluttered with emails that I did not ask for nor do I have any interest in.

In this day and age, we have data laws that protect us from this kind of thing. I have taken the necessary steps to try and remedy this issue by emailing Wowcher and asking them to remove me from their spam database. Unfortunately, they have ignored every single request that I have made, and there have been dozens. This is unacceptable.

As a consumer, I expect the companies that I use to respect my privacy and follow the rules when it comes to data protection. Wowcher's failure to do so has forced me to escalate this matter to the ICO. It is concerning to me that they are already gathering information about Wowcher for their abject failure to adhere to the laws governing data.

Would I download Wowcher again? The answer to that is a resounding no. The spam emails are one thing, but the fact that they have ignored my requests to stop only serves to show how little they care about their customers. Perhaps they should focus less on bombarding people with unwanted emails, and more on actually delivering on the deals that they promise.

Wowcher My Experience with Wowcher: Great Deals, but Beware of Scams and Poor Customer Service

Wowcher.com is a discount shopping website that boasts a variety of impressive offers. However, despite the alluring prices, there are some concerns to keep in mind when making a purchase from this site. While I had a positive experience when buying some photos, I wouldn't blindly trust every deal. In fact, when searching for information about buying cosmetic surgery, I discovered some unsettling Google reviews. Apparently, some people had a less than satisfying experience, with some going so far as to suggest it was a scam.

Another point to consider is that the cheap holidays advertised by Wowcher may not necessarily live up to their promises. It's always advisable to take the time to research before making any purchases, regardless of how tempting the deal appears. It would be very helpful if Wowcher offered a review section where customers could share their feedback, but understandably, this could potentially hurt the company's sales.

Unfortunately, another downside of using Wowcher is their nonexistent customer service. If something does go wrong with your purchase, good luck trying to get a refund, which is rarely possible with the vast majority of deals on offer. Given this, it's not surprising that some people are hesitant to make purchases from Wowcher in the first place.

Overall, while Wowcher may offer some fantastic deals, it's hard to fully trust the site. With mixed reviews and a lack of customer service, it's essential to tread carefully when considering purchasing anything from them. So, if you do decide to buy something, make sure you do your research beforehand and read the reviews of those who came before you.

Wowcher Wowcher Review: Low-Quality Products, Disappointing Experiences, and Shoddy Vendors - Approach With Caution

When it comes to online shopping, it's always important to do your research before committing to a purchase. Unfortunately for those who have had dealings with Wowcher and their associated vendors, the experience has been less than satisfactory.

One of the main issues with Wowcher is the quality of the products they offer. Many customers have reported receiving items that appear to be nothing more than cheaply-made, poor quality knock-offs. Instead of receiving the great deal they were promised, they end up with something that they could have found for a lower price elsewhere.

Similarly, the experiences offered through Wowcher have left much to be desired. Customers complain of poorly organized events, inexperienced staff, and a lack of attention to detail. Rather than feeling like they're getting a great deal, they feel like they've wasted their time and money on something that was not worth it.

To make matters worse, the vendors associated with Wowcher seem to be of a similarly low caliber. Many have shoddy websites or no real online presence at all, leaving customers confused and uncertain about the legitimacy of the businesses they're buying from.

It's clear that something needs to be done to address the issues with Wowcher and their vendors. While it may be tempting to give them a zero-star rating, unfortunately that's not an option. Instead, perhaps we should be advocating for stricter business licensing regulations in the UK to prevent companies like this from setting up shop in the first place.

Overall, it's important to approach deals offered through Wowcher with caution. While there may be some good bargains to be found, there's also a high risk of disappointment and dissatisfaction. Until these issues are addressed, it may be best to take your business elsewhere.

Wowcher Wowcher.com Review: Great savings, poor customer service and lack of empathy

!

I have been using wowcher.com for my voucher purchases for a number of years now and have had some truly wonderful experiences! I have saved money on everything from spa days to dining out and have always felt like I was getting excellent value for my money. That said, I have recently had an extremely disappointing experience when it comes to the customer service that is provided by Wowcher.

Unfortunately, my husband has been struggling with cancer and has been undergoing treatment for quite some time now. In the midst of all of this, we were given some vouchers as a gift by his son. Unfortunately, due to the impact of the treatment, we were unable to activate the vouchers in time before they had expired. When I reached out to the customer service team, hoping to extend the vouchers so that we could still use them, I was shocked by their response. They simply told me that the vouchers had expired and offered no flexibility when it came to extending them. Additionally, their tone was uncaring and disinterested, which made the whole situation even more disappointing.

To be quite honest, I feel like the situation could have been handled with much more tact and sensitivity. Given my husband's health struggles, it would have been a really lovely treat for him to be able to use those vouchers, but instead, we were left feeling undervalued and unheard. Overall, I can't say that I would recommend Wowcher anymore. While they do offer great deals and savings, their lack of empathy and poor customer service means that I will be taking my business elsewhere in the future.

Wowcher Disappointing Experience with Wowcher: Lack of Customer Service and Communication

Recently, I had a less than satisfactory experience with Wowcher - a popular online deals and discount marketplace. I was searching for a large garden storage bin and came across a great deal on the Wowcher website. Without hesitation, I purchased the voucher and submitted it to the vendor. Initially, the sale was confirmed, and I was looking forward to receiving my new storage unit.

Unfortunately, my excitement was short-lived as the vendor cancelled the sale a day later, stating that the goods could not be couriered to my address. This was frustrating and disappointing news, especially since I had already made plans to use the new storage bin. I contacted Wowcher's customer service team, expecting some sort of help or resolution to the problem.

Shockingly, Wowcher's response to my complaint was unimpressive. They offered me double the value of more Wowchers as a way to compensate for the inconvenience caused. However, at this point, I had lost faith in the company, and all I wanted was a refund. Despite my repeated requests, they were not forthcoming. As a result, I decided to invoke the dispute procedure with my bank, which helped me claw the money back.

It's clear that there was a significant disconnect between the customer and the vendor providing the goods. What's more, Wowcher did nothing to establish if such problems existed before taking my money. This has left me feeling frustrated, disappointed and doubtful of their business practices. While I can appreciate Wowcher's middle-man business model, there are still unacceptable flaws, and their communications and website feedback mechanism proved to be below par when the transaction did not go smoothly.

In conclusion, I will not be using Wowcher again. While their deals may be enticing, my experience suggests that there are significant risks involved. I would recommend that Wowcher needs to improve its customer service and communication if they hope to keep customers happy and loyal. As for me, I'll be taking my business elsewhere.

Wowcher Wowcher Review: Frustrating Delivery Delay from Merchant Hunndo-P for Oversized Blanket Hoodie Purchase

I recently purchased an Oversized Blanket Hoodie from Wowcher's website, specifically from Merchant Hunndo-P. I was excited to receive my purchase and eagerly awaited its arrival. However, after redeeming my voucher on October 18th and paying a delivery fee of ?4.99, the estimated delivery date of October 27th came and went without any sign of my package.

I tried to contact the merchant directly, but their website redirected me to Wowcher's customer service. Frustrated at the delay, I finally reached out to Wowcher via WhatsApp on October 28th to inquire about my order. They promptly responded and emailed the merchant on my behalf.

It wasn't until November 3rd that I received an email from the merchant stating that my package had been processed and would now be arriving on November 8th. This came as a disappointment, as it was revealed that the merchant had not processed my order on the promised delivery date of October 27th. Apparently, it took an email from Steve at Wowcher to prompt the merchant into action.

To make matters worse, the Oversized Blanket Hoodie was intended as a gift for my daughter's birthday. The delay has caused her special day to come and go without her gift, and I am now out of pocket by ?19.99 plus the ?4.99 for postage, having waited over a month for this item.

After speaking to Wowcher once again today, they have indicated that they will need to send yet another email to the merchant, and it will take an additional 48/72 hours for a response. At this point, I simply want a refund for my purchase. Overall, the experience has been frustrating and disappointing, and I would hesitate to order from this merchant again.

Wowcher Beware of Wowcher.com - disappointing products and customer service

Wowcher.com offers a variety of deals and bargains to its customers, but unfortunately, my recent experience with them has left me feeling disappointed. In the hopes of adding some charm to my garden, I purchased four Moroccan garden lights at a price of ?68, which included an additional cost of ?8 for post and packaging. The product looked phenomenal in the picture, and I was eager to see how it would light up my garden.

However, when the product finally arrived five weeks later, I was extremely disappointed. The bulbs were much smaller than I had anticipated, and the lights were not suitable for my garden. After making the difficult decision to return the items, I requested a refund of ?60, which should have covered the cost of the product, as well as the additional ?8 I spent on returning it.

Sadly, my journey to receive a refund was far from smooth. I had the misfortune of dealing with four separate representatives, each of whom had a different opinion about whether I was entitled to a refund. Ultimately, Jasper, the latest representative I communicated with, informed me that I had exceeded the 30-day limit for returns, and according to European law, I was only eligible to receive a Wowcher credit refund worth ?33.

I must admit, I was left feeling frustrated when my attempts to contact the company went unanswered. After all, I had spent a significant sum of money on the product, only to be let down by the quality of the item. To make matters worse, it was going to cost me ?60 to pursue the matter in small claims court, which was not an appealing prospect.

I believe in standing up for what is right, so I decided to take the legal route, even if it meant not getting my money back. In the interest of keeping things fair and transparent, I want to share my experience with potential Wowcher shoppers: I strongly recommend bypassing this company, as they do not seem to be cooperative when it comes to product returns or customer service.

It’s very hard to get a refund when things go wrong.

I ordered a long reach chain saw at a price, did not explain that I had to buy a voucher so they can deliver. Clicked on voucher to get info and they charged me another £21.49, got my refund for the item but not for the voucher.

I keep writing emails but no response as yet.
