“Overnight price increases”

Written on: 22/10/2021 by MadisonCameron19 (1 review written)

I attempted to buy a shelving unit which was in 2 pieces, whilst trying to buy it the right side increased by £125, I contacted customer service by email and had no reply. I checked prices again in the morning and the left side had now also increased,, I called customer services and was told you need to pay what’s advertised, that’s £250 extra. Neither item we’re on sale, it was just regular prices and they increased them by £125 each. Terrible pricing and terrible customer services… Read Full Review

“Worst 'Customer Service' ever received!”

Written on: 26/04/2017 by 3llena (2 reviews written)

The low quality clothing has always been overpriced but free standard delivery compensated for the extortionate prices. Fake pictures are used for clothing, showing nicely fitted tops, but in reality, they're big, baggy and shapeless. But my reason for review comes after the shocking 'customer service' I received from both the customer service agents and the complaints department. I had to make contact several times before I received an unacceptable response. I can't understand how Freemans… Read Full Review

“Very poor quality goods”

Written on: 18/11/2016 by Cayden1958 (1 review written)

I have been a customer of Freemans for nearly 40 years and am horrified at the way the quality of their goods has fallen. When I first started buy clothes from them the quality and value were great. Not anymore - since they have been part of a much larger group of companies the quality of the fabrics is poor and the price is ridiculous. The courier company they use is another problem as I live in a rural area and numerous times have waited in all day for someone to pick up returns with no… Read Full Review

“I'm not saying it's a bad catalogue but I do think...”

Written on: 13/10/2016 by Specialsiren (1 review written)

I'm not saying it's a bad catalogue but I do think they're very very expensive. I wouldn't recommend them. I was buying the star wars lego millennium falcon which is in Argos for £130. Looking on line I seen it in jd Williams and look again for the same price but freemans were charging £170. I think that's an extortionate price hike. If I wanted to pay up front and not open a credit account why would I pay £170 at freemans. There's no need to be that expensive… Read Full Review

“Worst catalogue by far”

Written on: 09/06/2016 by 467Corcoran (1 review written)

I have had this catalogue since October last year, I have made at least three times my minimum payment every time and always paid weeks before payment was actually due. Then I went to make a purchase a last month and my order was cancelled on their end and when I asked why they said your credit rating has dropped and therefore we will not be allowing any more purchases using your credit account. I mean come on as long as my payments are made and on time should it really matter… Read Full Review

“Don't buy from Freemans, you'll be sorry if you do”

Written on: 19/09/2015

I have not been credited for a return that they acknowledged receipt of, which they now say is "missing". On 31 August I ordered 2 of the same item and was sent the wrong size. I returned both items in the same bag they were delivered in, which was collected by their courier on 4th September. On 7th Sept I received 2 emails confirming receipt of each item. On 8th September I received an email saying one item would be refunded, which it was on the 11th. On the 12th I asked what happened to the… Read Full Review

“Freemans are refusing me a refund due”

Written on: 19/08/2015 by Driscollee267 (1 review written)

Freemans are refusing to refund an over-payment made by direct debit due to their error. They have made so many mistakes with my account and have said i have missed payments despite my bank statement saying i have made every payment on time. I have been going round in circles and they just don't care. The staff seem clueless and unable to follow simple instructions. This is nothing less than theft!… Read Full Review

i guess the staff can only go with what they have in front of them, it is your responsibility to prove you have paid it, send copies of the bank statements.

“BEWARE OF THEIR RETURNS POLICY!”

Written on: 03/08/2015 by 250Hanley (1 review written)

Their goods are supposed to be on 14 days approval. . .but they are not! Twice they have charged me for goods that I don't want and they say they cannot be returned because 'they are out of the approval date.' I have been an agent with this catalog since 1977 and I can't believe how far down the tubes its gone. It used to be great and their products were good value for money. But alas, these days after one wash the item falls to bits, no matter how much you have paid for it! I won't be shopping… Read Full Review

Applied for a freemans account on the off chance of being accepted and to my surprise the top that i ordered arrived on a Sunday no less considering i ordered it on the Friday i was impressed! I was started on a limit of 200 pounds which rose by 100 every month after i made payments. At the moment the balance is quite high and im sorting my finances so am making the minimum payment and the limit hasnt budged which i feel shows that they are responsible in how much credit they are dishing people… Read Full Review

all credit accounts no matter what company it is regularly check with other credit companies you are with whether it be credit cards, mobile phone contracts etc and if you have high credit limits, missed payments or generally credit with other companies, this can mean sometimes you are seen as a risk and companies have the legal right to refuse credit at any time, despite you may have paid them correctly, it is the 'risk' factor.

Recently bought an item through freemans which arrived late. Called customer service to ask where it was and they said this was not their issue. When item finally arrived, i plugged it in and turned it on. The fuse in my house then blew and product no longer worked. They provided me with a dangerous item with poor service. Do not use!… Read Full Review
