“DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!”

Written on: 22/09/2014 by 263Lyons (1 review written)

I wish I had read the reviews before using returntoearn! I sent a 13kg bag containing 50% brand new clothes, still with labels, and 50% of clothes only worn once or twice to have only 2kg accepted as good condition- unbelievable! The photos sent to me were a pair of shoes with slight creasing on the leather where they had been worn- only natural once worn a couple of times- and the collar of a tee shirt that you could not see any wear and which I knew had only been worn twice, saying… Read Full Review

“Not trustworthy ”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by Rankindc1951 (1 review written)

When you send your clothes away, you send away your proof really, so when they come back to you and say "sorry it is under the limit", you have no way of complaining - in my case: how can over 2 kg of clothes just magically disappear I wonder..? I really wish I had given them away to one of the charity shops in my town rather than supporting this place. I would not recommend anyone to use Return to earn. Give your clothes to someone else!!… Read Full Review

“No eve or weekend collections”

Written on: 20/08/2014 by JeromeBallard183 (1 review written)

Ordering my bag was straightforward, but when I tried to book a collection date I found they only collect Monday to Friday during the day, not evenings. Those of us who work full time can't sit at home waiting for a text to tell me when the driver is coming. I ended up using a different company. Extended collection time or Saturday collection would be very helpful… Read Full Review

This company reject around 70% of anything you send , They cannot provide proof that the items they reject are not being 'RECYCLED' for PROFIT....
In Addition , the Customer Helpline is a PREMIUM RATE number ,They will actually cost YOU to send clothes to this company ,

“Complete waste of time.”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by Colel373 (1 review written)

Please DO NOT waste your time. I am in shock over how I ensured my clothes were clean, folded into the bag, and weighed over 10 kilos (as stated in company requirements) before collection, then 2 weeks later received just over £1 for my efforts. Marketing draws you in. Please take your clothes to a charity store instead, or if you want to make money put on EBay… Read Full Review

“would never use again”

Written on: 25/07/2014

my bag was over 11.6kg and they accepted 3.3kg. They gave me £1.99. Thats disgusting. They showed me 9 pics of 9 items they wont accept which wouldn't even weigh half a kg. I am sorry but there was new items with tags on still in that bag and all they gave me was £1.99. I had another bundle to send and would not even waste my time. There are other sites out there who are more decent and honest. Please shop around.... search by cash for clothes for decent companies. I would have got… Read Full Review

“Avoid this company”

Written on: 08/07/2014 by 313Burton (1 review written)

I prepared a full, very heavy bag which contained clothes that were clean, unstained with no holes or breakages. All of the items were in good working order and good for re-sale. It was my understanding that they would be re-sold abroad cheaply. The collection was a mess. The address that they recorded was incorrect. I know this because they emailed me to say that their driver had visited the house and that I was not there. The house number that they had quoted did not exist. I also left the… Read Full Review

“Possibly misleading”

Written on: 10/06/2014

We sent return to earn several items (about 15kg) when we moved house. The issue of a bag and the pick up process went smoothly. However, they accepted about 40% - worth about £4. We were surprised as many of the items were new and unworn or practically new (the result of a successful weight loss). Their photographs illustrating the reasons for items being rejected "heavily worn" were carefully chosen, but did show two items bought (as is the fashion) as faded. One, a sweatshirt, was an… Read Full Review

I had exactly the same thing .... Again majority had labels still on as brand new but rejected !!!!
Over £300 pounds worth of brand new clothes - I kept a tally and pics of everything that went into the bag - and only got paid £4 as rest was rejected!

One of the photos was of a brand new Fatface top that had never been worn & they had commented that it was "heavily worn" & so rejected! I have complained & got nowhere.

Interestingly, I also left a poor review of this company on Yelp & they have had it removed! Yelp shows it as a 5 star business, but if you look beyond the one 5 star review to the reviews that Yelp haven't recommended you get a very different picture - many many negative reviews! I told Return to earn I would be leaving a bad review so they have obviously hunted it out & had it removed, shocking really as it just said the same as the other reviews on Yelp! Beware, a dreadful company!
