For the last year, UPS has delayed delivery of the majority of our packages for no apparent reason. The latest experience was this week; the local UPS received our package at 7:55 AM Tuesday morning and held it until Friday afternoon before delivery. We personally do not ship UPS and really don't like businesses using UPS to ship to us, as we find them extremely unreliable.

Tip for consumers: They only guarantee items if THEY pack for you, and you pay them to do that.
Also, DON’T let them package and send items back to Amazon for you or you may find they never got back to Amazon! and they will tell you they “have no record of that shipping number in our system” even though you have a receipt!!!

We have been customers for over 35 years and this year we ordered the same ham we have for the last 4-5 years. Instead of receiving the glazed, spiral cut, bone in ham we ordered, we received a sliced ham with no bone, and definitely not spiral sliced.
When I called customer service (after no response to 2 emails), the representative asked what I wanted him to do. I told him I wasn't sure what he meant and he told me "you got the ham, you ate the ham, so there's nothing we can do."
This is the thank you for being a loyal customer from this company. We will be purchasing any future game from other sources (at about 1/2 the price) in the future.
Mailed a package a week before it needed to be delivered; was told at Post Office "no guarantee but it should be there on time."
A week later, it hadn't even left the state!!! Over $25 for this "service."
Any wonder less and less people are using postal services???!!!
Three years ago we purchased a refrigerator from Sears the salesman told us was a Whirlpool. Almost exactly 3 years to the day we purchased it the compressor failed. Turns out it was not a Whirlpool, it is an LG. $420, over $200 worth of food loss and two months later, the refrigerator works but is now noisy. We wonder each day if the compressor will fail again. The LG model touts a linear compressor ... NOT a good compressor at all. That wasn't the only thing that failed in our refrigerator ... it needed pretty much all new mechanics. LG makes decent electronics ... but not appliances. That's why Whirlpool sticks to appliances ... it's what they're good at.
Purchased a Kenmore refrigerator in April 2016. We were told by salesman it was made by Whirlpool. Quit cooling and freezing almost exactly 3 years later, this past April 2019. Turns out refrigerator was actually made by LG ... a brand we NEVER would have purchased ... and the compressor failed. According to Sears repairman this is VERY common for LG. Had to wait 3 weeks for parts, and when he came back to install compressor, found out coils had pinholes. ANOTHER 2 weeks later it was finally fixed ... to the tune of $420 (labor costs only as compressor was still under manufacturer warranty). And Sears only gives 4 hour windows for repairs; with the 2 hours to do the actual repairs, we "lost" 6 hours of our day :(
I ordered two purses (same style, different colors). Description on DSW website says purse comes with a logo charm; one of the purses I received did not include the logo charm. Tried calling number on receipt (that was with purses ... after being on hold over 30 minutes I hung up. Tried calling the next day and, after a 5 minute hold, decided to use the offer of them calling me back. Almost two hours later I did indeed receive a call, but I didn't pick up my phone in time and they left no message or call back number. I emailed (twice) and three days later have no response. I called again and, after a 50 minute wait FINALLY got to talk to a live person. After agreeing on a $15 credit for the missing logo charm, I received an email saying I had an $8.21 credit !! Probably not worth any more of my time to try to get the remainder of the promised credit so I'll probably return the purse. UPDATE: I did receive another $2.16 refund, making the total refund $10.37. DSW now claims I received $17.00 total refund! I did return the purse and they deducted $8.50 for a coupon they said I used to purchase the purse originally (I did not use any coupons) but I figure we're about even now, except for my time.

Tip for consumers: Be VERY CAREFUL if you order from DSW ... make sure it is EXACTLY what you want and are expecting ... contacting them and getting any kind of resolution is doubtful at best.

Switched to a Mac over 15 years ago. Am a totally satisfied customer with all Apple products now ... computer, iPhone, iPad. Easy to use, advanced features, good looking products. Well worth the price.
Everything weve purchased from Pottery Barn looks timeless and has held up beautifully. Items ordered online are extremely well packaged to insure no damage.
When I switched from another carrier, I was forced to relinquish my paid in full 128gb iPhone 6 for their 64gb AND pay about $600 (after the $300+ "rebate" for switching). After a year and a half of poor to no service, depending on where we were (New York, across all the southern states of the USA, California coast) we decided to go back to a proven carrier. What a shock to find out my iPhone cannot be unlocked as T-Mobile reported the IMEI as stolen in 2015 (less than a month after I purchased it from them). I still can't figure out how it worked the year and a half I used it. OR does T-Mobile have the wrong IMEI??? It doesn't really matter as I can't unlock it so I can't use it with the new carrier or sell it in the future. I lost SO MUCH more than money with T-Mobile ... time and effort with poor service.
We've gone through 3 Shower Caddys (at $130 each) as they are advertised not to rust ... guess what?? they DO rust ... granted SimpleHuman is willing to replace rusted parts but to have to contact them every six months is annoying. Interestingly, ours rusted simply by being in the shower, they were rarely actually wet.
For the majority of the time, Amazon Prime delivers as promised (within 2 days). But there are times it does not. When contacted, they are responsive, for the most part, to either try to expedite shipping or offer a refund of the purchase price or a credit to be used on future purchases.
Worked very sporadically ... lost wifi connection and wouldn't work for a day, then spontaneously started working and, just as spontaneously completely stopped working. Tech support (3 different reps) INSISTED it was our electrical, but we tested, retested and re-retested and our electrical is working fine. Trashing unit as too late to return :(
