I read good reviews before I ordered a higher priced item and then after I placed my non-returnable order all I read were terrible reviews! I started to panic that it had been almost a week and I still hadn't received a shipping confirmation (it's the 15th and it was supposed to be delivered on the 17th) I live chatted my concern and the man reassured my my order was being ready to ship. I get home 30 minutes later and the item is sitting on my porch and I have an email for shipping. So they need to work on that aspect but I'm very happy my item showed up and it's exactly what I thought I was getting!
I ordered a sofa in May. I was charged for the sofa AND received a tracking number. I've now sent three or four emails to Gilt but have no resolution on this.
I've ordered probably close to $50k from Gilt.com over the last few years; I ordered about $15k this year alone. Theor delivery and customer service have both gone very much down hill.
Frequent problems include: items canceled after ordered, items canceled after billed, cancelled but billed items requiring customer interference to receive refund, broken items, very poor packaging of fragile items resulting in absolute damage, snarky customer service, delays in response for customer service, merchandise not as photographed, in-house brand of poor quality, partial cancelation of orders obviously intended as sets (bras/panties, multiple curtains panels, a duo of chairs, bedding sets). Oh...I could go on. And these problems are not anomalies or novelties. They happen all the time.
I ordered in May, was BILLED in May, received a tracking number in May...but I have no sofa (the rest of the items ordered together were delivered and thy have rejected me returning those items. Partial sets AGAIN)
Don't waste your money unless you have a lot of it to lose.
This company sucks! I ordered a red sofa on July 3, & no one can seem to pin point the whereabouts of this item nor do they know when it will be delivered. I've talk to the shipping company (EFW) Gilt.com hired to deliver this sofa. I've been on the phone with them 3-4 times & still no sofa. Complete bull$#*! & horrible customer service on Gilt's part. Never again will I patronize this incompetent company. ~OD
In the middle of dealing with Gilt third party delivery service who a) scheduled delivery and confirmed it before the item was even in their hands and b) made me wait through delivery window before saying item wasn't there and c) might deliver it "today" because item showed up "just then". Complained to Gilt and got sorry, so sorry, so very sorry and hey, they'll call you within 48 hours to schedule delivery. What? They've never called before to confirm anything, they didn't answer an email about delivery. Why would I have any confidence they'd call? Gilt should have made this right by upgrading delivery to white glove and offering to follow up on delivery since I've been sitting here all day waiting for something that obviously won't show up. I've ordered from Gilt before and if it just arrives via UPS, great. But I would never order anything from them that requires delivery from 3rd party. In fact I'd never order from them again after how little they cared about getting this item to me. All I wanted was a) for the item to be delivered when they said it would, and b) to have Gilt follow up and make it right since obviously the delivery company can't seem to figure out how to do that.
UPDATE: A customer support specialist reached out to me about returning the bag after SiteJabber review and I was able to get site credit for the purchase. Not quite the same as having my money back, but better than being stuck with a factory bag I didn't mean to purchase.
Gilt sold me a factory labeled Celine bag when the pictures clearly showed the same bag without the factory label in the exact same place on the bag. They showed a picture of the item being sold that was different from what I received. When I asked for a return they refused to give me one. This is definitely misrepresentation of what is being sold and shady. If the page labeled that the bag was factory it makes more sense, but I looked over the page and sent them a screenshot, nowhere on the page did it mention it, and the pictures showed bags without the factory label.
What was the point in telling me to call for an ongoing dispute with your company when u had zero interest in actually helping me.
I am in NYC often and will be filing a case against you in small claims court, as the evidence I provided to american express is straight forward.
I ordered a couch from their website. Listed as grey and the pic clearly showed grey. What I received is a very bluish couch. Clearly, it does not match the photo or description as listed. They basically told me too bad, final sale.
When comparing the pic from the website and an unaltered/unadjusted pic of this ridiculous couch sitting in my living room, it's clear they have no clue. Safe to say that whomever I've chatted with from Gilt has never seen the physical couch, so how can they determine whether it's as described or not.
The product I ordered was incorrectly labelled and did not represent the size stated. They also misrepresent the SRP on items to make it look like you are getting a great deal. I took item to retailers who sell for a fraction of SLP on website. I now have to pay the return on items that don't fit because the item sent was in no way the size represented on the website and to make it worse they suggested on their website how it should fit. There are way better online shopping sites in terms of accuracy and return policy IMO. No more!
I ordered a sunglasses and ended up getting one that looks totally different from what I had ordered. It cost me over $100 but they said if I just use it they will offer me $15.lol. What an amazing way to sell $85 sunglasses that is not popular.
My cousin got the parcel and sent it to Korea where I was living. And they didn't want to pay for the cost for shipping it back to the US. If they sent the right product from the first place I wouldn't have to send it back to the US. So I lost my time and lost my chance to get the right product for me(original frame I wanted to order was already sold out). And now I have to pay for the return while they are not taking any disadvantage. They don't take any responsibility for what they have done wrong.
Worst service I have ever had.
Ordered a TAN crossbody Balenciaga. Received a NAVY BLUE envelope clutch. Called customer service and they were very apologetic. I then receive an email offering me $75 refund if I decide to keep the bag instead of returning it. Ummmm....it wasn't even CLOSE to what I ordered so I have no idea why they thought I'd take that offer. Returned it and am awaiting my refund. (fingers crossed...). After a few emails back and forth and at my suggestion, they decided to offer me $50 off a future order but good for only 2 weeks. They lost a potentially great customer as I am a frequent online shopper. Thumbs down, GILT.
I own the same pair of Valentino Flats I purchased from this website. I thought since I loved my first pair(which were not from Gilt.com) that they would be exactly the same only in a different color. When i walked 5-10 minutes to dinner from my apartment my heels and pinky toes had large blisters. These were damaged product from the smart of them selling irregular and incorrect shoes. I agree with a couple reviews when I say I cant give no stars, because if I could you would not even get one. Then I asked to return them, and they say no. Bad customer Service. I will and won't ever shop this site again. Last $388 I ever spend. SHAME
BELIEVE ALL THE REVIEWS YOU READ! Company is a total scam! Ordered (4) dresses a month ago for delivery tomorrow. Today they have inventory problems and cancelled my order. Did give me a $25 credit....as if I'd ever shop there again! Horrible customer service as well!
I purchased a Gilt Sample Sale ticket. 9 days after purchasing Gilt send an email that the sale is now being sold at 50%. I contacted their customer service immediately and they said no price matches after 7 days. I explained multiple times that this is not a product and a Gilt Sponsored Event. They did not budge. I opened a BBB case, in the beginning the Gilt management team did not want to help either. They claimed they didn't see a price reduction for the event and it is now sold out. I had to send them a copy of the email plus the screen shot of the day that I saw the prices at 50% off. After providing those documents they refunded me the difference. They are very hard to deal with, they don't want to make any exceptions for anyone. Their customer service doesn't care about your concern. I had to fight tooth and nail to get the refund.
I had purchase gold earrings with pearls,when I received it looks like bought in the 99 cents,and thera many dents.Iitem non-returnable.
Unfortunately it was the worst experience.
picture on the site absolutely doesn't match the real picture.dont recommend.
I ll never recommend your shop anyone and definitely will write review.
Quick, easy and efficient. Someone got back to me right away and she followed through with my request a month later when it was possible to do so. Would have been even better if they could have processed the request immediately but that wasn't possible here.
Think twice before you buy anything!!! I have been waiting for 3 weeks to receive a credit back to my card for a return. I have called five times and they are blaming the credit card company!! they are the worst!!
How could a company that wants to sell pants not provide inseam details? Unbelievable. And then when you complain the respondent claims that "most products" have the information. when that's patently not true.
Purchased a RedCarter one piece swimsuit on my AMEX. So glad I purchased with this card. Waited a full month and still no swimsuit. Called Customer Service and they explained it was a "sell first", whatever the heck that means. Bottom line they escalated my order so I would get my suit faster. That was sweet of them. Received the package one week later, low and behold I open the package and out comes top only, no bottoms, no one piece RedCarter suit like I ordered. Immediately called Customer "Disservice" and complained. Was told the warehouse had the wrong order number. The packing slip clearly said one piece---guess they thought no one would notice if I went naked on the bottom. They can't send a replacement b/c don't have the suit anymore after 5 weeks of waiting. Probably never had it in the first place. Listen to the reviews and double digit negative ratings. Must really **** to work in Customer Disservice and for that matter at Gilt.
They cancelled my order, locked my accounts and made no attempt whatsoever to contact me...all because I put a new shipping address for my order!
After contacting customer service and waiting 20 minutes on hold, a supervisor mumbled "a new address is the same as fraud and we have the right to close an account and cancel an order for any reason, which you agreed to when you signed up". When asked why they wouldn't simply contact the customer (me) to verify the information, I was told "We will never attempt to contact the customer because the contact information we have on file could be the fraudulent person's".
Are you kidding me? Give me a break. By far the absolute worst customer service I have experienced, next to Comcast.
I almost purchased something from this website because of the email they sent with the extra 30 percent off with code Guilt30, as I was trying to check out, I could not add the coupon code until I provide name,shipping address and credit card info. So I decided to check on their review and I was so glad that I did. I will never buy anything from this site ever. Will put them as SPAM. Thank you for posting all your reviews to warn consumer like me.
I purchased a dress for my gra daughters nursery, 2 months ago... well this is the 2nd one , the first dresser was broken in transit ( so Gilt says) order AGAIN, deliever date came and went, still know dresser, again! Everytime I call I get a run around. THEY ( gilt) never returns calls, I have to call them back every time . I have literally begged them to just deliever item.. ( because our granddaughter is going to be born in a WEEK, I have ran out of time to order item from another place) oh, BTW the dresser is literally a 1/2 hr from where it needs to be delivered, and has been so for a 2 weeks, JUST SIT TING IN A WARE HOUSE IT WASSUPPOSED to be delived on March 6th... ... now ( my husband has said HE WOULD PICK IT UP, AND DELIEVER TO OUR SONS HOME, so the nursey could be complete) gilt said that was not possible. I have spent so much time on phone trying to get them to deliver item..it is unbelievable. .. I feel so dumb for not cancelLing order, and going somewhere else. ... PLEASE DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY, DON'T AGGRESSIVE URSELF, WITH THIS COMPANY ....so not worth the "saving"...
No trust company!!!!! They are liar!!! I purchased shoes from Gilt.com, but the size was tooooo big so I tried to return the item at that time but they said that the item I purchased is non refundable so I claimed the dispute through the credit card company and Gilt.com said that I do accept the return but I have never tried to call them to return... They said all item which is on sale is non refundable.... They are playing words with me... I'm so disappointed...
To be fair I got some decent prices on some cute stuff for my toddlers. Ordered a lot. Spent a lot. Achieved premier status....but the love affair is over. Their referral program is a joke. They don't follow through when you solicit for them you don't get your credit. They come up with excuses. Their customer service just sucks in a nutshell. Don't even bother because they're right no matter what. I've been sold now on sticking with my old go too Nordstrom rack and sacks off fifth. Prices are just as good and customer service is miles above. Seems Nordstrom and Saks appreciate their customers.
Customer service is worst with GILT
The products are not upto the mark - they present it well but when you use those you will feel that the product quality is not even comparable to cheapest brands
They are just spoofing the prices for low quality products
Better buy from brand stores than this fake retailer

I purchased artwork. The delivery was delayed by about 6 months and the product (a mirror by Parvez Taj) arrived shattered. Gilt gave me the runaround for the 6 months but did refund for the product damage. I believe anything but clothing (and maybe accessories) is managed by third party vendors and thus subject to their availability which Gilt does not always seem to verify before posting for sale (based on my personal experience).
Hi Madelyn, I hope that you are keeping well.I Once an order ship's from our warehouse an email will be sent to advise you. To view the progress of any orders pending, please visit the "Orders" page in the "Account" section on Gilt.com. I hope I was of help today! Have a nice weekend. Chat soon, Maureen -GiltService
Don't purchase ANYTHING from Gilt you may want to return. Their return policy is rigid and unfair. And their customer service department is unhelpful.
Hi Sharon, Thanks for reaching out. To avoid this, I would recommend adding a credit card to the Payment Methods section of your account and setting it as your default payment. This will automatically load the credit card at the checkout so you can see the order total/discounts being applied. Warm regards, Dane-GiltService

We really do appreciate the time you have taken to share these concerns with us and will ensure that they are shared with the relevant department. Warm regards, Ellen-GiltService
