“Terrible customer service”

Written on: 17/03/2014 by redval4 (1 review written)

I have an account with Next for about 18 months. I had a credit limit of £500 it was increased to £600 and then taken away completely in one day. No contact and now I am expected to pay it off. I can understand sensible lending but I paid my account every month on time so cannot understand why it was suddenly closed with no contact at all. Well I shall be paying it off and will never shop in Next again… Read Full Review

“Annoying”

Written on: 18/02/2014

I have had a similar experience to a previous reviewer. I currently have a account with next. initially my credit limit was £200, £500, £1000, £1500 then reduced to £1000 and then closed. I pay my balance in full every month and have never missed of been late with a payment. They have no reason as to why they have done this apart from they check you credit file monthly, which i agree is responsibly lending however i am also a member of credit expert and monitor my record regularly getting… Read Full Review

“Bad customer service”

Written on: 07/02/2014

I bought a telephone from next on line. It was faulty, so I had to return it, get a refund, and rebuy in the shop. It eventually died completely so I returned it. I was told by a pleasant assistant it was showing as £15, not the £30 I had paid, although I had all the relevant papers. I was told not to worry I would get a full refund. A week later nothing has been repaid. Why should a customer have to do all the running around, returning, rebuying, no call backs, and certainly no refund. Back… Read Full Review

“Jugglers with that credit”

Written on: 31/12/2013 by Adamwh (2 reviews written)

Whatever.. So I ordered a few things for my wife for christmas and a coat I got her was to big, so we returned it and she went online to order some other stuff, only to find out that we aren't aloud to order anything unless we pay for the order in full! So my wife is now without a christmas… Read Full Review

“There won't be a NEXT time”

Written on: 19/12/2013

I have ordered an item twice on the Next website because they did not send me a purchase confirmation soon enough, so I thought the transaction did not come through. I called them to cancel the second purchase abut they told be that they could n't. I had to wait to receive it and then to return it which I did. I had paid the items in advance by card so I thought the money will be returned to my bank account. Instead, they credited my online account which I certainly have no intention to use. I… Read Full Review

“Poor online experience”

Written on: 14/12/2013 by chris-review (1 review written)

Had a Next online account for many years, & just remembered why i stopped using it. Their Jeans are the only ones that seem to fit & they never have my size in store. So i bit the bullet and ordered online for in store delivery. Every time i clicked order i received a message stating there is some problem and i should try later or phone through. I tried maybe 6 times over the corse of 6 hours and eventually phoned my order through. The following day i received 7 emails from next stating my… Read Full Review

“Would not recommend ”

Written on: 11/12/2013

Went into store found an item I liked . Ordered it at the check out . Was told that It would take 3days and that I would get a text to let me know it was delivered into the store. 4 days later no text so called them. Answer sorry not in stock go get your money back? What kind of service is ? Asked why not when I ordered in store there was stock available and they took my money surely at this point one was assigned to my order number. And when would they have contacted me. They could not give… Read Full Review

“Fantastic delivery service - the standard to judge...”

Written on: 20/11/2013 by Steve_E007 (4 reviews written)

We have used the Next website to order a washing machine and a new sofa on-line, as well as some smaller goods. I was amazed when our washing machine broke down on a Saturday. Convinced nothing could be done until Monday I was amused when my wife ordered a replacement from Next, online, late Saturday afternoon. She said he would be here the next day. I tried to convince her they must have meant next *Working* day… and besides, surely we were too late in the day to get a next day delivery… Read Full Review

“Stalkers!”

Written on: 18/11/2013

[ Review on international site (nextdirect.com) ] I was visiting a clothing item everyday, until my size was available. I did that for a couple of weeks. Suddenly, the price for that item doubled, while the prices for all of the clothes of the same kind stayed the same. Then, I reached Customer Service to make a complaint, and they offered me my desired item at the old price. The doubled price was still there, at the website, though. I conclude they were buying my silence! Isn't that… Read Full Review

“False advertising, previous review miraculously...”

Written on: 15/11/2013

I placed an order for a description of "black leggings" and "brown leggings" from the sales section of the website. These arrived and were labelled "maternity" of which no description was shown on the sales section of the website. As a good will gesture nothing was offered to send the regular sizing due to NEXT's false advertising and the causing of much inconvenience to myself. But I can clearly see that lack of customer service is an issue. NEXT have promised to correct there sales section of… Read Full Review

“FANTASTIC SERVICE”

Written on: 26/10/2013

After reading the reviews below I was more than anxious to order 2 sofas from Next. I visited the Home store at the Gateshead Metrocentre and received fantastic service from the store assistant. I ordered my sofas and I was given a choice of delivery dates. Three days before my chosen delivery date, I received a text and an email to confirm that my order was being delivered on the correct date. The day before delivery I received a further text narrowing the delivery time to a 2 hour slot, which… Read Full Review

“Delivery not at appropriate time”

Written on: 21/10/2013 by Johnstonce (1 review written)

I ordered in store for next day delivery with specific time of the afternoon. I was told I would receive confirmation via text message. I received no such text and the item was delivered in the morning. I was not at home and therefore this delivery was unsatisfactory. Why offer time specific delivery to show up whenever suits?… Read Full Review

“Delivery drivers falsify status ”

Written on: 19/10/2013 by Matt7121 (1 review written)

After ordering some items and paying for next day delivery for a specific day I knew I would be in, the driver failed to deliver. Checked the online status at 2pm and it said they had tried to deliver at 12:55 and left a card. I was on my drive all day working on my car and the delivery driver would have had to walk past me to get to the door. Of cause there was no card left. Called Next customer service right away who basically insinuated I was lying and that they would make no attempt to… Read Full Review

“Shocking service”

Written on: 16/10/2013

Ordered 2 bedside tables and matching chest of drawers in July 2013. In September recieved a letter stating that some of the items were not yet in stock and were expected to be ready for delivery in October. The suggested date arrived and I had to contact Next myself to see if they were in fact coming on that date. When a delivery date was arranged I recieved the 3 items. We build the self assembly bedside tables then opened the chest of drawers to find one of the parts was not as the diagram… Read Full Review

“Worse than awful”

Written on: 01/10/2013

Easily the worst website I've ever bought from. No idea why they insist on doing a credit search if you're paying by credit card, and slightly annoyed about it. Their system couldn't find my address, so I had to enter it manually, which was fine - eventually. Took me a while to work out where the option for doing that was. Delivery appalling too, still hasn't arrived. Definitely won't use again, and would avoid like the plague. Don't use it. If you must shop at Next - and their stuff generally… Read Full Review

“Ruined my credit file and taking no responsiblity ”

Written on: 23/09/2013

one of the most awful experiences ever...I was overcharged by Next Directory who then sent no statements to me so I wasn’t aware of what they had done and then they placed an entry on my credit file for non payment of a measly £20 balance which means I can no longer apply for credit!!! spoke to them on so many occasions and they are refusing to take any responsibility for their stupid incompetent actions...completely useless and one of the worst customer service experiences ever!!! am now… Read Full Review
