“rip off comany who trick customers when making faulty...”

Written on: 31/01/2016 by jamesharding (1 review written)

after emailing ideal about a faulty iPhone it took them 17 days to reply they told me to ring them after the third time of email with my complaint. after ring them l checked my phone bill and it cost me £4.50 and now they want to charge me £3.00 to send a faulty product back . I just can not believe that you have to pay to send a faulty product back and they charge you around 18p per minute which they try to keep you on line. I took the iPhone in to apple they fixed it for £35.00. l… Read Full Review

Returned and requsted postage refund due to faulty goods.. Surprise surprise, not refunded. To talk to anyone about it would cost a fortune, more £ for Company! Will never shop with them again… Read Full Review

“Terrible and disgusting”

Written on: 18/01/2016 by Reyes290 (1 review written)

Received a letter asking for payment in the name of a female (I'm a single male)- explained this was a mistake and evidence shows my details and that I always clear my account. A barrage of emails later (they don't read emails properly, along with bad grammar, poor spelling etc) and my account has been blocked until I pay someone else's invoice! Received a letter from a debt collection agency, demanding payment- have replied with the evidence of the mistake and fortunately the agency have taken… Read Full Review

“AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS”

Written on: 05/01/2016 by laura4dylan (1 review written)

I ordered a Prestigio phone to take to Spain with me, when the phone arrived it was faulty, I rang to explain I needed the phone for my holiday, was told I had to return the phone via recorded delivery ( at my cost ) and only once the phone was received by them would they send a replacement, 5 weeks later after a phoneless holiday the phone arrived. We bought the phone on the 3 payment account, owing to a bank error the final payment was not taken out, at no point did Ideal World contact us to… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/12/2015 by djBoyd11 (1 review written)

When I first bought this product I found that it burns the skin so stopped using it, some months later I had a letter recalling the pearl, the choice was money back or a new one would be sent, I opted for a new one thinking that this would not burn my skin but I was so wrong this one is the same. I do not recommend this to anyone… Read Full Review

“Does not do what it is advertised to do sadly”

Written on: 28/11/2015 by 316Greenwood (1 review written)

Purchased Beldray 2 in 1 and could not get handle off to make it hand held. Contacted both Beldray, who didn't recognize the product or product number, and Ideal world could not help so they arranged pick-up. I only wanted to get the handle off !!! There is a more substantial Beldray product that seems to work better, from reviews. Very disappointed as wanted to use while crafting but filters clogged quickly and didn't pick up. Sad… Read Full Review

Just taken delivery of my 2 in 1 vacuum cleaner from beldray why would anyone buy a Dyson when you can have a excellent product like this for just £20 6, picks up superbly and with the crevice tool you can get into those tight spots other cleaners can't . I would recommend this product to anyone who has arthritis problems as it's lightweight and easy to handle . Thank you ideal world for this great product… Read Full Review

“No More.”

The Elizabeth Grant collection I might have purchased, but the presenter was a joke. He made the lovely lady look uncomfortable, I felt sorry for her having to deal with his strange sense of humour. This product would sell, but not with him...cringe. Sorry Ideal World… Read Full Review

Bought a duvet at £80. They sent me the review link but I still had no product. Forced to call at my expense to chase. Supplier problem I was told and they would reorder product. The call I made had told me I had the product 8 days ago and emails said this too. I then left bad review that was rejected by them, obviously. Then next day product arrived, supply problem sorted quick if it ever was… Read Full Review

“Dreadful Customer Service X-Hose”

Written on: 14/10/2015 by xqRoss54 (1 review written)

I bought an x-hose from Ideal World. After every use I coiled it up and put it in the garage making sure I never left it outside. I hadn't used it very often when suddenly it burst. I rang Ideal World who agreed to send out another hose, which duly arrived. Sadly after a couple of months it too burst for which another hose was send only because I was still within the warranty. I hadn't used the x-hose for some months and surprise, surprise when I was watering plants the other day it too burst… Read Full Review

“Absolutly RUBBISH”

Written on: 02/10/2015 by Daviesuk183 (1 review written)

Placed an order with them, item arrived however parts were missing. Called them (at my cost - No freephone number just a premium line which costs 3 arms and 2 legs) several time, basically fobbed off saying missing part will arrive, 20 days later the part still hasn't arrived, and i still carn't get a resolution....I am now thinking its basically a rip off company ! DO NOT USE THEM - IF YOU DO YOU WILL BE SURE TO HAVE PROBLEMS WHICH WILL NEVER BE RESOLVED - EXCUSES EXCUSES THIS WILL BE ALL YOU… Read Full Review

Mystory1's Comment

Written on: 02/12/2015

TOTALLY AGREE. They are the WORST SHOPPING PROVIDER, orders often missing parts or broken. They are notorious for charging you "even when you have returned the goods, they claim they have never received them...even when their "own couriers" Hermes or Yodel collects them. Ideal World mysteriously seems to lose the notes on your account or your conversations mysteriously didn't get recorded. They are sloppy and rubbish and needs investigating by the industry standards. Stay away

“Utterly useless”

Written on: 17/09/2015 by lonpilot309 (1 review written)

Never used one of these shopping channels before but spotted an item I wanted on Ideal World TV. I went through the registration process, entered all my details including payment details and pressed "place order". All I got back was a message "unable to place order" with no explanation of why. I tried again with the same result. I then tried to place the order by telephone but the number on the website (and TV) was unobtainable. I tried phoning the customer services number but that doesn't work… Read Full Review

“Awful”

Written on: 11/09/2015 by MacMillandz293 (1 review written)

I ordered two moissanite rings to treat myself, instead of having to fork out for a one carat ring. However, after repeated attempts to find out where these items were - I was then told that they had been delivered. To my surprise, I had no notification of the items being delivered and now I am out of pocket for two items that I have never received. Simply, awful… Read Full Review
