Sears SEARS CHANGES PRICE AT CHECKOUT Sandy Springs Georgia
Well I do not know what to say. I have been a customer of Sears for years and after my experience this week I think we will be looking elsewhere for future purchases of appliances.
My husband and I went into the store on Saturday but it was hard shopping for appliances with 2 children so after speaking to a guy there he suggested we get online and find what we liked. He said he could honor any price we could find online. So we did just this.
We went home Saturday night and I searched online for a refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. I found three products that would meet our needs but by this point the store was closed and my husband was asleep. So the next morning I showed my husband the prices and he contacted the guy at Sears. My husband left his number but after a few hours we did not recieve a phone call back, so my husband called again. This time he was put on hold for a significant amount of time and no one came to the phone.
So we decided we would just purchase the things online. We were trying to go through the guy we had started with but since we were unable to get in touch with him we thought we would just go ahead and purchase the item online. I went to my cart and clicked proceed to purchase. When I did this the prices of all the items in my cart changed totalling $1000 more!
I called Sears 1800 number and they told me that they could not honor the price. I chatted with someone online who told us they would not honor the price and my husband has continued to call the guy at the Sears near us but we have not gotten a call back.
I know this may not be a typical ripoff but I definately feel ripped off! We were looking at purchasing a Kenmore Elite refrigerator for $1538.99 and the price all the sudden was now $2436.90! The other two items also went up in price, the microwave went from $359.99 to $449.99 and the dishwasher went from $359.99 to $399.99.
We had also had a code for an extra 10% off so we were just so surprised when we went to checkout that the price went up rather than down. If Sears had just fixed this problem when I contacted them online, through their 1800 number, or the guy in our area then I wouldn't be writing this. They did offer to take 5% off the current prices but this is still a difference over $700!
Buyer Beware! Don't waste your time shopping at Sears Online, go somewhere else!
