No Sweat Protection Plan is a SCAM

MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA -- Dear Potential Customers:

Be careful when ordering from Dick's online store. If you must return for any reason, return via online and not at the land-based store. There could be price discrepancies that the land-based store cannot honor because of inadequate corporate policy.
I have also found some of the employees at the Myrtle Beach location to be unfriendly and incapable of handling return issues, though corporate is partly to blame as a result of poor fluidity of service between the online and onsite stores.
BUFORD, GEORGIA -- Went to Dick's at Mall of Georgia to replace running shoes that I had bought at Dick's two years earlier.

Hardly anyone in store, no one in shoe dept. Looking at many shoes on wall by myself. Saw man watching big TV. Asked if he worked there. He came over to me and I told him I needed to replace my shoes. All he did was ask what shoes I had been wearing. He brought out the new version of my old shoes and disappeared.
Tried shoes on, but wanted to try others. The place was not busy, almost dead. No salesperson around, so I walked out.
Went to Foot Locker and got some customer service, and a new pair of shoes. Walked back thru Dick's with my Foot Locker bag. No one noticed, but it made me feel better.
I won't be going back to Dick's.
TROY, MICHIGAN -- Bought a stare master from Dick's Sporting Goods in Troy, Michigan. Machine wore, and the rollers would not stay on the tracks, such that you could not use the machine for more than 30 seconds.

Contacted Dick's service, but their contractor providing the service, was awful. More than a month went by, and still no guarantee when we would get the parts.
We then went to the local Dicks, and they gave us a new machine, due to our history with Dicks and the fact that they wanted to make their customers happy. Unbelievably impressive.
Worst Store Ever
HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS -- Dick's has the worst customer service of any store I have been to. I recently bought a bike there that broke the very first time I rode it. They DO NOT take returns OR EXCHANGES on broken items they sell. ... read full review6 Replies - Latest reply on 08/25/2013
FRISCO, TEXAS -- Adams Golf said to take it back to the store, and they will send it in for a free repair. The manager said that they could not do that and that the shafts were not warranted by Adams Golf. This is all BS, because two Adams Golf representatives said that it was under warranty. To make a long story short. GOLF GALAXY rocks and sent it to Adams Golf for a repair.

My conclusion is that Dick's Sporting Goods managers are too lazy to help the consumer, and do not back the products that they sell. DO NOT BUY FROM DICKS
Today (11/22/09) I received an e-mail telling me of Black Friday deals that can be pre-ordered and had several items on the page I would have been interested in at the prices given.

However, when you try to click on the item nothing happens. When you go to the Dick's website, the item is not only priced higher than the e-mail, it is even higher than the quoted "Regular" price!! Nowhere on the website can you find a link between the stuff in the e-mail and prices quoted.

I visited the Dick’s Sporting Goods store located in Hoover (Birmingham), Alabama. My purpose was to purchase a full set of relaxed cloths to attend a local minor league baseball game. I was attending a military function in the town and had failed to bring civilian clothes. I verified with every sales associate I spoke with that I wanted to change at the store, pay for my goods and leave going straight to the game. Keep in mind I am in full military uniform. Everyone said it was fine, no problem, etc, etc. Till I asked for the security tags to be removed from the clothes. This seemed to be a problem even though the Dick’s sales associate volunteered to walk me, their clothes and my money to the front to make sure it was paid for completely.

I explained my dissatisfaction to the front manager on my way out of the store. Then over to Academy where it seemed no problem at all and I saved $4.95 on the same shirt.
All that was just the tip of the iceberg. I received an email from Customer Service that ‘my expectations’ were not to be met.
FLORIDA -- After dozens of attempts online / by phone, Dicks Sporting Goods and Sports Authority cancel my order for a billiards table, despite my bank authorizing payment, on the basis I live in the UK and my bank is non-US.

The product is for my Florida vacation home so why should it matter where I am from, or my bank?
Remember the commercial for MasterCard and Visa 'accepted at millions of outlets worldwide'.. but just not at Dicks Sporting Goods or Sports Authority if your bank is British!
