after spending 1 hour trying to order a fridge, freezer, washing machine and oven my bank blocked my card as they have had trouble with fraud at currys !!! so then on the phone to my bank for almost an hour all sorted with them so I called currys back to try and order over the phone and again could not take payment ! told me to try the next day. 24hrs later I try again the fridge I was going to get has gone up by £40 and the washing machine is no longer available so a new order is now £100… Read Full Review

“Know How - I Don't Think So”

Written on: 11/10/2016 by Churchill28 (1 review written)

Ordered an American Style Daewood Fridge/Freezer on 25th September in store. It was out of stock but got a text less than a week later with a delivery date - October 7th. My wife (self employed) took the day off, we got a text just after 7pm saying delivery between 3.10 & 7.10pm - perfect! Delivery arrived just before 4pm and the team unpacked it on the drive and noticed one of the doors was badly dented. Not their fault but we refused. Spent more than 30 minutes holding on the helpline… Read Full Review

“Sales Items Practice”

Written on: 10/10/2016 by SkegbyMal (1 review written)

Went into local shop to buy a computer just after it came on sale. Was told that there were none in the warehouse and could not order one. After a while I was told that if I travelled 25 mile there was a shop that had one but curry's do not do a transfer system. I pointed out that Argos would do that for a customer to which I was told, 'well got to Argos then'. I left… Read Full Review

“Failure to deliver and worst service available”

Written on: 08/10/2016 by Alice321 (1 review written)

On Friday 30 September I placed an order. At 16:26 I received an order acknowledgement email and at 16:27 I received an order confirmation email saying that my order was being prepared and would be delivered in full on Thursday 6th October 20167 – TODAY!!!! The delivery man phoned at 09:33 on 6th October saying that they would be with me in approximately 20 minutes – perfect I thought. How wrong I was!! When the delivery man rang the doorbell I was immediately informed that the Neff… Read Full Review

“Currys Colchester - the worst ever.”

Written on: 02/10/2016 by Kason451 (1 review written)

Just don't bother going to Currys in Colchester, their customer service along with the 'Know How' team are the worst i have ever experienced. They never call you back, they don't know their products and they really don't care if you have any problems. Don't bother calling the store - they won't pick up. Don't bother calling the central support number unless you like listening to hold music for an hour. Save yourself a world of hassle and cost and just go somewhere else. You have been warned… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/09/2016 by DenisseLevesque (1 review written)

Hey Currys staff don't know their products at all, its like talking to brick walls, it not the staff problems but the Currys Managing Directors of these companies who just put £££££ figures before customers, the directors are responsible for their staff and how they conduct themselves, they will sell you electrical leads all day, as theres no knowledge required on them, But to be fair heres always a very low moral in the staff at Currys, We often go Currys just to see the products and then… Read Full Review

“Mis-selling, argumentative, unethical, shady sales...”

Written on: 18/09/2016 by AdisonHall471 (1 review written)

Yesterday, my wife and I went into the Solihull branch of Currys PC World to purchase a new TV and surround sound following the loss of ours due a to a lightning strike. We got chatting with the LG rep and he was a wonderful guy, he helped us with the size of TV, and the surround sound, even though the TV wasn't going to be an LG. Then things went downhill. My wife discovered that the surround sound system didn't have a Blu-ray player included. The LG guys took us over and we picked an LG… Read Full Review

“customer services !”

Written on: 09/09/2016 by zippy1234 (1 review written)

I bought a Logik electric hob because it was on offer although it was not going to be fitted for about 5 weeks BIG MISTAKE. when the hob was fitted the controls got hot (53 degrees as tested by there engineer) but this was within the acceptable range although you could not hold your finger on it. Because we had the hob for 30 days we could not return it. Customer services are a joke, you hold for 5 or 6 minutes then they send you round in circles while you end up where you started. So the… Read Full Review

Order placed mid June 2-4 week delivery . Contacted Currys for an update 4 weeks later by phone and was told a delivery was due to them and they would call on the Monday to arrange delivery . Emailed on Wednesday for an update and got an abrupt email back to say they would contact me when it would be due for delivery.

“Completely and utterly pointless”

Written on: 25/07/2016 by 363Bentley (1 review written)

I wish I could give zero stars. We've been to Currys three times in the past year, twice for a specific item, once to browse. On all three occasions it's taken time and effort to get hold of a member of staff to ask for a particular product on display. In all three cases we've then been told the product is out of stock. Complete waste of time and effort in all respects. Items should not be out on display if not available and no, we don't want to order from the website - that's why we went to… Read Full Review

“Warranty Repairs - Don't Bother!”

Written on: 09/07/2016 by ABowen (1 review written)

Canon camera stopped working so took in to the Currys store I purchased it from 3 months previously. They sent it away. After 5 weeks I had heard nothing so tried to phone them. No details available on the 'Knowhow' tracking service. Phoned their sales channel (only way to get through to a person) and he mailed the store to contact me. They said I had dropped the camera which I had not. Their word against mine and I have no leg to stand on. I need a new laptop - it won't be from Currys (or… Read Full Review

“Terrible delivery service”

Written on: 29/06/2016 by mikemols (2 reviews written)

The delivery team showed no respect to your properties, all they were interested in was to get the job done as quick and as easy as possible ending up with my scratched floor board. A complaint was made to the office and their stance is, if you don't catch them as it happens, it is your own problem and no liability whatsoever is accepted. BUYERS BEWARE… Read Full Review

“Worst company ever!”

Written on: 28/06/2016

Ordered a cooker and paid for delivery and installation and when it came the delivery men reeked of canabis and just left the cooker in the living room saying they couldn't install it. Obviously they were incapable of installing it which shows how poor of a company curry's actually is employing anybody. It then took me 30 minutes on the phone to apply for my refund which will take 5 working days. Currys is an absolute joke n I recommend Argos to anyone reading this review. I also hope the two… Read Full Review

“Waste of money”

Written on: 24/06/2016 by Rosierama (1 review written)

I recently purchased a washing machine from Currys. I paid for the removal of my old machine and the fitting of the new one. With much huffing and puffing it was fitted,the dishwasher pipe removed spilling dirty water over the cupboard , the "fitter" then trapped his finger when pushing the machine in. During the first wash the machine banged loudly. My husband checked the level and it was at an angle,something the fitter did not check. He could not alter the levelling legs as they were stuck… Read Full Review
