“Wrong creditors”

Written on: 01/05/2014 by snowy888 (1 review written)

I went to Curry's of Fosse Park, Leicester and looked at getting a fridge freezer, which I picked and went about setting a payment plan they use. To my disbelief it was refused by a new credit company they have started to use called Eclipse. I was astounded as I have never ever in my 46 years missed a payment with anything or been refused before. I have no major outstanding bills and everything I have is paid by direct debit and no payments have ever been missed. Sadly this has put me off going… Read Full Review

“absolutely useless idiots”

Written on: 26/04/2014 by whitey88tracey (1 review written)

Extremely rude customer service. Went into a Plymouth branch was approached by one employee I explained my question for him to look completely vacant and walk off with another colleague and customer probably because he had no clue of how to deal with my question. Also I ordered a fridge online 3weeks ago for it to be supposedly delivered 3 weeks later. The delivery van came all the way down to Plymouth from newark to discover the fridge had not been loaded onto the truck from the warehouse ( I… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 16/04/2014 by Churchpw122 (1 review written)

My tumble dryer was just twelve months old and the drum dislodged off the rear bearings. Trading standards advised me that under the sales and goods act that this product was unfit for purpose. After ringing head office the customer service I received was of a poor standard. Different employees said they would return my call but failed to do so. I eventually spoke to a manager who said the company repair man would repair it and give me an invoice which I could e mail to currys in order to be… Read Full Review

“TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND ORGANISATION”

Written on: 10/04/2014 by Stevensonhv187 (1 review written)

I spent £900 with Currys and they cancelled both my orders without explaining why. I got an email saying "as per your request" when I hadn't contacted them to cancel anything. After calling them they explain the products were out of stock. Even worse they took 4 days to refund one product and said they hadn't taken payment for the other.. WHAT????? Terrible company. NEVER AGAIN!… Read Full Review

“never again!”

Written on: 07/04/2014 by AllisonClay (1 review written)

I returned a faulty item and was given a refund but on a gift card. The gift card came with two receipts. I always assumed the receipt was actually the gift card. I kept all the paper work together except the gift card itself. I went back to the store and was told the gift card is treated as cash and can not be refunded although currys could clearly see the balance had not been spent. No where on the receipt or card does it state this rubbish.. It does say this rubbish.. The staff were… Read Full Review

“know how should be know not”

Written on: 05/04/2014 by mattrossa (1 review written)

Most dreadful experience ever. 2 guys turned up with my new integrated dishwasher. 45 minutes later they inform me they cannot remove my old one and I need to get a builder in to dismantle my kitchen to gain access. I take a look and get it out in 3 minutes - what if this was an elderly person or similar who would actually go through with this request? I by the way am a commercial sales manager so have no talent in anything like this. Anyway another 1.5 hours later they come and find me and say… Read Full Review

“DIABOLICAL”

Written on: 03/04/2014 by Hayley312 (1 review written)

25 phone calls culminated in my paying £80 more to replace a faulty freezer with a different model. Incompetence, lies and obfuscation. Possibly the worst organisation I have ever dealt with. NEVER BUY FROM CURRYS… Read Full Review

“Not a pleasant experience.”

Written on: 23/03/2014 by LandynMeadows (1 review written)

Curry's delivered my white goods 48 hours late. I ran up a huge mobile phone bill because they never once phoned me to inform me that they weren't coming - they just kept giving me new 4 hour delivery time windows and then not appearing. I was in the middle of moving house and it threw a massive spanner in the works as I was stuck in one place, repeatedly, waiting for them. My frozen food spoiled and I had to take an additional day of annual leave from work with no notice whatsoever. I hoped… Read Full Review

“Installation Service - we can't be bothered”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Demarcus204 (1 review written)

DO NOT USE THEIR INSTALLATION SERVICE EVER!!!!!! Ordered a washing machine with installation service. Arrived on time, however, they did not install due to a faulty cold water pipe tap that turns off the mains - said would have to get a plumber. Plumber advised tap not broken, only the cover was and they should have installed it. The deliveryman just wanted to get out as quick as possible and couldnt be bothered to do a proper check. Got a refund of the installation from currys and got them… Read Full Review

“Good service at Stockport branch”

Written on: 12/03/2014 by StopfordianLass (10 reviews written)

I purchased a Cuisinart kettle from Currys online which stopped working after 8 months. I took the faulty kettle back to my local store who replaced it for me with no issues whatsoever. The only down side was they didn't have the correct model for me to replace like for like, however I got a good replacement and a refund for the difference in price. AND hopefully this one won't give up the ghost after 8 months... :)… Read Full Review

“Lies”

Written on: 07/03/2014 by Tom01482 (1 review written)

Tell you that you can collect your items from a store near you next day after 5pm. Called the next day which was a Friday to check it was in and wasn't going to be a wasted trip and they told me that it wouldnt be with them until the Monday. If I new this I would have paid the £4.99 delivery charge for next day delivery to my home. Plus they didn't call me or email to tell me it wasn't in. It would have been a wasted journey for me!!!… Read Full Review

“Delivery service is very good”

Written on: 07/03/2014 by BusterH (2 reviews written)

We all know Currys, and I don't know why people come on here to beef about them. I use the price comparison stuff on Google shopping, and I always get good price with them. They stock all sorts, and what I like a lot is that they deliver for free - and really quickly, even if its for a little items… Read Full Review

“Salesmen/women.”

Written on: 05/03/2014 by Heidy265 (1 review written)

EVERY time I have made the odd purchase from them I have always been made to feel very uncomfortable by their sales person trying to push a warranty on me, they dont understand the phrase "no thank you" and proceed to badger you until they hope you give in and spend that bit more. The last time this was done to me at Lakeside when buying a portable tv the salesman became so sullen and rude when I said I didn`t want the warranty that when he went to fetch it I just walked straight out of the… Read Full Review
