I have tried to order more school shirts for my daughter, The website is consistantly saying there is stock and yet my order has been cancelled three times now. The exact time of getting the cancellation email I checked and there website siad there stock had actually increased. The stock levels make no sense and worse still they leave it until the last minute to inform you the goods are not going to be there for colection. When travelling to another town this is ridiculous.

This is no ordinary cardigan. This is item T38 08996/5267. Bought on 25 February 2012. Worn 3 times. Large amount of pilling appears. Take item back to store. Staff inform that M&S do not see pilling as a problem. The customer does!! Staff say it is the type of material and nothing can be done. Two letters have been sent to M&S Customer Services. No reply has been received to either letter. M&S obviously source items from obscure corners of the universe where workplace conditions... (read more)Visit marksandspencer.com

My wife went to M&S to buy a lipstick. There were none in stock so was advised to order. After confirming that the particular colour was current, she ordered 2 and paid cash, £6-50. 4 days later she was phoned and told that the item was no longer in stock and she would be receiving a refund as a cheque within 10 days. She was told that this was M&S policy and complies with their Terms & Conditions. A cash refund at the store was out of the question. We have written and complained that most...

I am appaled by the customer service at Marks and Spencer. I bought a £200 suit a week ago wore it twice at work and noticed the crutch on the trousers was wearing through. I returned it thinking that this would all be under warrenty, only to be told they could not refund my money. They had the cheek when I asked to speak to a manager to get a security guard to stand next to me noting down everything I said. Both the wife and I were totally intimidated, and the manager refused to refund the... (read more)Visit marksandspencer.com

Sofas were advertised as being 50% off. Full price approximately £2500. The sofas were very basic small scale, very short from back to front edge. Marks and Spencer then charged me £100 to return the sofas. The reason for this is the sofas were made to order. Made to order at 50% off!!
I have never heard of something being discounted by 50% before it is even made.
I think this is a scam. Marks and Spencer are selling cheap sofas and pretending they have this fabulous discount. ... (read more)

I sent it back the day after it was delivered, and informed M&S that I was cancelling the contract (which you can do up to 7 working days after delivery). Under the Distance Selling Regulations, M&S are obliged to refund not only the cost of the item, but also the cost of delivery, when a person cancels their contract in due time.

Half an hour on the phone to a premium rate number (0845), delivery turned up next day, damaged. Box all soggy, only 1 item out of the 8 ordered in the box! I am astounded as to how any...

I chose Marks and Spencer over cheaper rivals as I thought they were a brand to be trusted. I spent £440 on a new washing machine and fitting.

Instead I got a text instructing me when to be in with no number to ring them back on. Then they still came at a different time. (read more)Visit marksandspencer.com

after visiting Marks and Spencer in Dubai, was confused as to why price mark up seems to be up 20% more than UK stores. Dubai is a duty free country (eg: does not have a vat of l5%).

Perhaps if Marks and Spencer's stock control was up to date then the situation might never have occured. Offering 3 for 2 and then not fufilling their obligations leads me to wonder if they have any concern about customer service. Incidentally this has also happend to a colleague at work so it is not an isolated incidence. Pull your socks up M & S, or perhaps they are out of stock as well!!!
