Written on: 29/01/2010

Booked a last minute skiing trip and decided to buy a ski jacket and a few other things as they seemed very well priced. Placed the order very early on Wednesday morning with next day delivery but as of Thursday night it has not even been dispatched! How can they offer next day delivery when they can't even dispatch within 2 days? Emailed customer services and got an automated email back basically saying don't bother phoning and don't expect an email back for 5 days! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/01/2010

Ordered 2 pairs of trainers, order processed and shipping confirmation sent ok, Delivery address is Switzerland so i paid the £20 postage, and waited. Using the DHL reference i could see when they arrived at Swiss customs and waited, 2 weeks later i e-mailed SD no reply. In total 4 e-mails, 1 reply telling me they were stuck in customs (which i already knew!). In the end i phoned DHL and Swiss customs, goods had no invoice so couldn't be cleared, i sent DHL a copy of order confirmation and got… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/01/2010

Ordered a British Lions shirt on offer at ?5. Order was cancelled but was still in stock on website.

Rang customer service and had to wait 3 minutes to be connected even though automated voice said I was 1st in queue.

The man I spoke to was the worst I've ever experienced, very rude. Told me I wasw only supposed to order 2 shirts and I ordered 3. This wasn't made clear on advertising which he said it was. There website should only have allowed you to order 2 if that's the case.

I asked to… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/01/2010 by katebp (1 review written)

Paid extra for next day delivery but lack of email from Sports Direct to say they'd despatched the boots made me panic a little (expecially after I'd read the other reviews on this site!), but they arrived today on time AND with free enormous mug so all is forgiven!

Would recommend, seem to be much cheaper than other sporting goods websites… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/12/2009

I ordered my items on a Sunday and they were sent the next day on a bank holiday only to arrive the following day. The website seems to be the most competitive for sporting goods and i am really pleased with the speed of the service considering i only payed for a standard delivery. I just wanted regular weights and as they had an offer on i thought I'd get more increasing my savings on the site. I do find it odd that every item had an RRP price that's slashed considerably, it seems nothing can… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2009

Never again will I use SportsDirect.com. Ordered a football shirt which arrived with no sponsor on it. I searched through the website and magazine but could not find a phone number. I emailed customer services four times but didn't get a reply. I found the customer services number after a good hard look on the internet. I spoke to a man who couldn't care less and wasn't interested at all. He said I couldn't exchange it. I wish I read the comments on this website before ordering. I can't believe… Read Full Review

Actually visited the Reading shop. An experience not to be repeated. Staff unhelpful, and ill informed. Goods shoddy, but wouldn't give refund, only offer credit note or exchange for more tat. Totally unpleasant shop. Wouldn't have given any stars, but review form insists on some. "Blots" would be more apt… Read Full Review

wish i had of read these reviews before buying,
ordered 3 bikes and delivery was prompt, but 2 of the bikes were un-rideable due to bent forks, the parts shouldn't of even left the factory where they were produced, you could see by looking at them they were not right,
anyway, rang customer services, ( turned out to be more like customer brutality) i have to pay for the bikes to be sent back to them, and that's going to cost upto 25 for each bike, i would never consider buying from them again… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2009

Sports Direct sell mostly 'seconds' but will not tell you they are seconds. Many 'branded' items, are made by Sports Direct under license, and are their usual inferior quality. Look closely at the tags, you will see 'Made under license' (or similar) on many items.
Worst thing has to be that they will not allow you to contact them by telephone?? What sort of a company refuses to speak to customers on the phone… Read Full Review
