"Worry no more" warranty sold by Macy's -- you better "Worry"

Rating: 1/51

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- Don't do it! Don't buy the "Worry no more" warranty... recommend that you take not of the manufacture warranty and buy form a manufacturer that provides a decent warranty... You will find dealing with 'Worry no more" to be a total horror show!! I'm in MA ordered a sofa and love seat from Macy's furniture and bought the "worry no more" 7 year bells and whistles plan since it was sold as a full coverage plan... They should call themselves 'Worry" because if you purchase the service that is what you will end up doing They have no concept of service! They are unprofessional! They Lie and they waste your time! Don't waste your money or your time with "Worry"... And Shame on Macy's management for linking with "Worry no More" and allowing 'Worry" to use the Macy's name to pedal such inferior warranty service. Why I say "Worry" sucks? Put in a claim May 2nd (C1322192)with "worry" on May 2nd and after a week or 2 back and forth we settle on a date for them to inspect the issue which was Saturday June 15th, and then the Tuesday of the week they are to come out they bounce me to Macy's furniture and cancelled my claim saying (without inspecting the loveseat) that what is wrong with it is still under manufacturer warranty... Macy's furniture did a good job working one of the issues which may be related to back support of the furniture, but since there is an issue with staining also Macy's got "Worry" back on the horn for me and "Worry" setup a new claim and noted that they would have someone come out the Saturday June 15th to assess the issue, and stated that I would get a call regarding my 3hr window... Saturday comes no call regarding 3hr window so I call "Worry" worried and they tell me my window is Noon to 3pm, and state I would get a call 2 hrs before the inspector arrives... Yes, at this point you would think all is going well... Well you would be incorrect since 2:30pm comes and no one called and when I called "Worry" I was told they cancelled my claim again.... Well the associate at worry seeing that the service has been has been totally screwed up tried to put me through to a supervisor but I got cut off...

So I call back again and the belligerent male I got is yelling at me telling me I need to listen to them explain to me how "Worry" operates when all I want to know is when is someone coming out to look at my furniture... And all I would like explained is how they could tell me wait between Noon and 3pm as of 9am the morning and then cancelled my claim was well as the inspection for the same day... Well the belligerent male would not connect me to a supervisor an hung up on me... To which I had to call Macy's who got things back in order again...

So it seemed but somehow it came off the rails yet again... As previously stated, "Worry" has no concept of service! They are unprofessional! They Lie and they waste your time! Don't waste your money or your time with them... And Shame on Macy's management for linking with "Worry no More" and allowing 'Worry" to use the Macy's name to pedal such inferior warranty service

Miracle at Macy's
By -

MIDDLETOWN, NEW YORK -- The employees in the Housewares Department of Macy's are extraordinary. Every time I shop in that department, the employees go above and beyond to help me find what I'm looking for. If they can't find it in the store, they search online and let me know where it can be found at other Macy's locations. They do everything possible to send the customer away satisfied.

During my most recent visit, I was looking for certain pieces of cookware that I saw online but couldn't find in the store. After an associate determined that the items were not stocked at that location, she went online and found them at other Macy's stores. I didn't want to travel the distance, so she offered to have them sent to my home with free shipping. She also honored the online price, which was substantially lower, and gave me an unexpected 15% discount!

I can't vouch for other Macy's locations, but the one in Middletown, NY has never let me down. The employees are not only helpful, they are also pleasant and friendly. They treat customers like guests in their own home. The employees make the store a wonderful place to shop.

Macys - Worry no More Protection Plan
By -

SOUTH PORTLAND, MAINE -- Does anyone know if there is a class action suit on this??? Apparently a lot of complaints Do not bother buying this plan!! They will not cover anything they simply do not want to pay on claims. Bought a 4 piece leather living room set from Macy's in 2004 and was encouraged by the sales person to purchase a 7 year protection warranty on the furniture. We have kept this furniture looking like new but recently spilled some beer on part of a seat cushion causing discoloration in an area about 4 inches by 8 inches. We reported the incident within 24 hours ( 10 day required time) calling the number stated on our copy of the insurance policy. The person on the line identified themselves a a customer service representative for Worry no More and said they will call with a 3 hour time frame to schedule an adjuster. They did call back scheduled an appointment, the adjuster showed up on time with a bottle of some kind of spray. took some pictures and said he would have to recommend a technician to come a recolor the leather. He also asked me if I had experienced any problems in getting action on this ..said he was getting an earful everywhere he went. I waited a week and called back to see if they were scheduling someone and was told they were denying my claim ..they do not cover this sort if thing. I looked at my policy and it states "accidental staining or damage to upholstered leather and vinyl furniture" and beverages was included. I have found out that the insurance carrier I a company out of Florida operating under the name of Uniters. If anyone has more info in the form of help please pass it on to me.

Macy's The Magic Not To Pay Overtime To Employees
StarEmpty StarEmpty StarEmpty StarEmpty StarBy -
Rating: 1/51

SHERMAN OAKS, CALIFORNIA -- MACY'S THE MAGIC NOT TO PAY OVERTIME TO EMPLOYEES
MACY'S, a company with a tainted reputation that you should not work for
Macy's located in Sherman Oaks, at the Fashion Center Mall, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.

Many years ago, and only for 4 days, Macy's told employees to do paper work during working hours, but soon after that, Macy's told employees not do it no more because it wasn't productive neither profitable for Macy's.

MACY'S - NOT OVERTIME PAID SINCE 1983 FOR PAPER WORK DONE AT HOME. MACY'S OWES MY WIFE MANY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN UNPAID OVERTIME. Macy's used forced resignation instead of firing my wife to rip off her, to bypass the law and not to pay a dime to my wife, including not severance payment, not overtime paid in 25 years (3.3 hours daily) for work done at home for MACY'S on an hourly employee working 40 hours a week. Because of Macy's actions, my wife never got any unemployment or workers compensation

My wife worked as a manager at Macy's and MACY'S never pay for it
In 2002 or before, my wife was so well qualified doing her job at Macy's, that my wife was taking the manager place when the manager was on long vacation or on other duties for Macy's or when the manager was promoted.

Macy's never ever increased my wife hourly pay for the extra work done as a manager. For several years, my wife was doing that for months, because Macy's delayed on purpose to hire a new manager to replace the previous one gone

MACY'S GREED, ENJOYED TO HAVE A CAPABLE PERSON AS MANAGER AND NOT TO PAY THE MANAGER SALARY. MY WIFE NEVER GOT ANY PAY FOR IT OR INCREASED ON HER SALARY, MY WIFE NEVER WAS PROMOTED AND DOING FOR 25 YEARS THE SAME WORK: selling expensive women apparel – floor sales.

My wife got a lot of top reviews from customers and many outstanding certificates from Macy's, year after year. Only pieces of paper. Meanwhile Macy's pocketed extreme profits from extreme markups on everything sold.

Avoid Macys Online Retail
StarEmpty StarEmpty StarEmpty StarEmpty StarBy -
Rating: 1/51

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Macys online shopping is among the worst on the net.

My first experience involved Paypal purchases. Twice my order was cancelled because of a discrepancy between the cost at time of transaction and the transaction value Macys brokerage firm attempted to push through. By the time I was notified of the failed transaction, the item(s) were no longer in stock.

My second experience was even worse. This time I issued my credit card info and purchased 3 items online. The first shipped within 1 week, the remaining 2 were in "processing" status for about 3+ weeks. I contacted Macys customer support and was assured the order was being processed. After another week, or so, I contacted Macys again and according to the csr, there was a "warehouse problem" and did I want them to try to locate stock.

Totally unacceptable and unprofessional conduct. I live in a relatively small community and I purchase a lot of stuff online mainly because of unavailability locally. I've honestly *never* had the kind of negative experience I've had with Macys. It frustrating and ultimately disappointing. My advice, especially to other international shoppers is to avoid Macys online like the plague! Compared with most of the other online etailers I've shopped with, Macys is really amateur and incompetent.

Strike 3 Macys... you're definitely out. This is one customer who will never spend another dime in your organization and I'll tell anyone who will listen.

What's really on sale?

TROY, MICHIGAN --
Although I have a Macy's credit card, I very seldom use it. Mainly, I purchase gift cards for clients/friends/relatives. There are two stores quite near me; one within walking distance.

Last week I received a mailing that left me scratching my head. In it were four ‘star rewards PASS' cards. Two were for $10 off a purchase of $30 or more; two were for 20% off any purchases made on any day I choose. As expected with various coupons, sales, etc., at the bottom of the cards was: *Exclusions apply; see reverse for details. Before tossing them, I thought I'd take a look at the reverse.

I was very surprised at what I found: ‘Excludes ALL: Everyday Values (EDV), specials, special purchases, super buys, furniture, mattresses & area rugs/floor coverings, cosmetics, fragrances, electrics/electronics, Licensed Depts., bridge and designer handbags & shoes, designer sportswear, watches, Impulse, Oval Room, 28 Shop, eSpot, sterling flatware, All-Clad, Eileen Fisher, Emporio Armani, Tommy Bahama, Coach, Dooney & Bourke, Dyson, Henckels, Juicy, Lacoste, Lalique, Lauren/Polo/Ralph Lauren/Denim & Supply, Levi's, Lladro, Waterford China/Crystal/Silver, Wusthof, etc. There were many more companies and/or departments listed but I think these are enough to give a general idea of the exclusions.

At the bottom, in bold print is: Online exclusions differ, see (website) for more details.

I realize some manufacturers do not allow retailers to discount their products. Yankee Candle comes to mind.

A suggestion for Macy's: On the reverse of the amount/percentage off cards, list the items that CAN be purchased using these cards rather than the exclusions. The list would probably be shorter.

Item Refund
StarEmpty StarEmpty StarEmpty StarEmpty StarBy -
Rating: 1/51

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA -- I ordered some items online and when I got them they weren't quite what I thought the material and lay of the outfits seemed different. However that isn't the problem. When I went into the store to return the items I was greeted and asked what I needed, so far so good then it goes downhill. The associate looks at the items as I place them on the counter and says "this isn't even my department" and I asked her if she was capable of refunding them. Apparently I was in petites and I had items from juniors. Then in a rude tone looks at me and says well what goes with what and had me take the packaging slip and separate the order into 2 piles of how it was shipped. By now I'm pretty ticked off and just want to get my refund processed she does it sighing and mumbling under her breath about the items. Finally she puts her hand out with my receipt. I grab it and ask if I'm done as she replies "yea" and that's it.

I love Macy's and I shop there constantly with my boyfriend it's our go to store when we hit the mall. I have never had such a horrible customer experience in any store or setting before. I am greatly unsatisfied with how I was treated. I planned to look for my mom's mothers day present today and a few items for my home and I didn't even get to purchase them because I was so upset I got sidetracked and just wanted to leave the store as quickly as possible. If I do continue to shop at Macy's I will definitely not be returning to the Scottsdale Fashion Square location my experience was horrible. The associate Leslie was incredibly rude, there was no excuse for her poor attitude and representation of the store.

My Experience With Macys Customer Service
By -

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY -- My Experience with Macys Furniture Department and Customer Service
The Good the Bad and The Ugly!

2/10/2004-Ticket Number ********
My previous address is *********. This is on the first page of your computer screen my new address is on the second page. I know because I've been through this conversation over 20 times.
Well my experience with Macys Customer service and delivery has had its good and bad parts. To start off when I first received the order back in 2004 from Macys it had to be returned because that somewhere along the way the back of the leather had been cut with a knife. I had already had trouble with the delivery people showing up at all. So then I had to wait for them again to exchange the couch. This time it was correct and they did exchange the couch. Later in July 2007 when the couch broke I discovered the Macys delivery people never put the middle leg on the couch to begin with. Thanks delivery. I loved this couch. You see I'm only 5'2" and I can only touch the floor on so many couches. So sad and hard to find something that fits like the three little bears. (Just a side note the worry no more program you sell to the public has a less than admirable Better Business Bureau Report).

Flash Forward 7/2007-Present my month long venture with getting things fixed.
68159392Ticket number ******* and Ticket Number

A Whirlwind of frustrations brought me to this point that I felt I needed to write a letter. It all started on 7/22/2007 when I noticed the couch frame seemed to be broken on my chocolate leather Natuzzi couch style number 214247/806140/025. Being the person I am and understanding the importance of timeliness I went directly to the Macys store. I had called and left a message prior but did not get a call back until two hours later from the furniture department at which time I was already making the 20 minute drive to talk to someone about what had occurred. Well I got to the store and told me I had to call the 1-800-511-2865 number and there was nothing that they could do. This of course made me infuriated that on a Sunday I could not get a hold of anyone to ease my mind that things would be taken care of. So I went back home to my house to attempt to call Macys customer service.

The first call I did not write down whom I spoke with or what time. I thought things would go fairly smooth. So I did not get a hold of anyone on Sunday because customer service is closed. I then called on Monday the 23rd to set up an appointment for my couch to be looked at. They set me up an appointment for July 30th. I was told I would get a call from someone on the Saturday before confirming the time of the appointment. Well no one called and so I just assumed they forgot and would show up on the 30th of July. Well I did call on Monday morning to get a window of time from the furniture repair department and nothing was set up. So I called customer service again and spoke with Harry. I was disconnected from him and called back. I then spoke with Char at extension 65644 at 9:45 a.m. and was told there was no way to get someone out that day to look at my couch. I had taken off of work that day to wait on the repair people because I did not know what time they were coming. So I was offered a $150 gift card after asking if there was any compensation that I could receive for my troubles.

I was out over $300 in income waiting on something that did not happen. I found out from the customer service department that furniture services 911 forgot to process my work order. They were then rescheduled to come to my house on August 6, 2007 and they were to call with a time. I asked that I be told a time. Charles called me from Furniture Services 911 1-678-947-4272 ext 137 to tell me they would be out at the house between 3:30 and 7:30. Again I took off work in the afternoon to wait. I got a call at 2:30 p.m. from someone at Furniture Services 911 telling me that they could not make it out to the house. I then called Myrna ext 65134 and told her what had been going on. They said that they could come the next day during the day. I tried to call Charles and he never returned a call. Why does Macys only contract with one company that only has 30 employees I'll never know? They only have one technician for my area. Anyway, after a lot of complaining I got them to come out to the house after 5:30, which is when I get off from work. They did show up this time. Thank God.
The repair guy told me at that point a middle leg had never been installed on the couch and there was a knot in the wood where it broke under one of the seating areas. He told me that it could be fixed. He would order the parts and they would be in around 3 weeks and to call customer service in three days. I called and told them at customer service what had happened with the couch and why it broke.

In the mean time I got a call from Myrna 8/10/2007 saying the couch had been discontinued and that they could not get the parts to fix the couch. She told me that they could only replace the couch itself and not the chair and ottoman. I told her my mom was having breast cancer surgery and asked her how long I had to find something. She told me to take my time and that I would have 30 days. I went to the store and sat on everything. I could only touch the floor on two couches and was upset that I had to find a couch to match the other two pieces. So I called and left a message for Myrna asking her to see if they could special order the couch I already had. I left two messages on 8/13/2007, two messages on 8/14/2007 for Myrna asking about other options. On 8/14/2007 I also spoke to Lamont (at this time the Macys customer service system was down) and he could not tell me anything either about what to do next. On 8/15/2007 I spoke with Liza and left a third message for Myrna. On 8/16/2007 I spoke with Yolanda and left message for Myrna asking them to reorder the couch. By the way when I asked what had been documented in the computer nothing had been documented about the last three days of phone calls trying to get a hold of someone who could explain the return process.

Finally I got a hold of Amy 67808 who told me that it was Macy's policy to replace the entire set for a manufacturers defect. So then I went back to Macys to look for furniture. She told me I would get a full credit for the entire amount on ticket number 58254130. She told me that Myrna must not be aware of the policy of full replacement for a manufacturers defect. I finally found furniture, which was all right. Nothing any the store stuck out to me like the Natuzzi couch I'd bought before. So I called the customer service number on 8/21/2007 just to find out the process of things after going to Macys at lunch to find the gentleman I had been working with was not coming into work until a half hour after the time I had on his card. Michael Crow from Macy's Louisville took the time to look everything up for me and was very helpful. I ordered new furniture to be delivered on August 30, 2007. I had to open another Macy's account in order to get my credit, which I was told would be in the store. This was very frustrating and I can't believe a company would make a customer do something like this in order to receive credit for bad merchandise. Yes I had an account before and it has been cancelled for three years.

Anyway I call customer service again today and spoke with Marisa who was very helpful 8/22/2007 to give them my account number and have the credit be placed on my account. I will not get the credit until the 30th of July (I hope this actually happens). I'm looking forward for this month long process to be over. The new ticket number is ********. I hope this furniture is of better quality. While I was writing this I finally got a phone call back from Amy who I called yesterday. Someone else called to help me because as she told me Amy does not have time to get back with me. This was at 1:14 p.m. today 8/22/2007. That makes me feel important. I'm glad I went ahead and took care of everything myself by calling until I got someone who could help me.

I'm praying and have my fingers crossed to not have the delivery, repair, and service experiences for the remainder of my business relationship with Macys. I hope that in the future Macys finds a better way to integrate all customer service aspects of the furniture department to make it more efficient. Education of all staff at all levels is key on policies and procedures. Thanks for your time and I really hope this gets some attention. I would hate other customers to have the same experience I have had. Oh, by the way while I was waiting to reorder all of my furniture another customer came in and complained that she never got her confirmation phone call for the delivery for her furniture. Lord help us all!

Sincerely,

Misty I. Jensen
Macy's Customer (Probably not in the furniture department again)

Update -9/25/2007
It's almost October now and I'm still going. My first couch was delivered with nicks on the leather and scratches on the wood. I called for a replacement. It arrived a long time later and this one is worse off than the first. It looked alright in the drive way but upon getting it in the house I discovered loose threading, nicks in the leather, more scratches on the wood than last time. I'm sick and tired of waiting on people from Macys to exchange the couch so I asked just to have a repair person sent. They will be coming out on October the 8th. This is the earliest they could get there so I would not have to take off anymore work. I quit taking names because it really doesn't matter anymore. I hope they can repair the couch but I feel like I should be given back some of the money on the couch for keeping the damaged one. I'm sure nothing will be done about this because I already sent a letter to the corporate headquarters. It is not the delivery people doing this it has to be happening in manufacturing.

Quality Control does not seem to be doing their job. I received a phone call for another exchange and they told me that I should call customer service and ask them for part of my money back. I did and they offered me $250 that barely covers the cost of the warranty which will be voided. They offered this on top of the $105 gift card that I was given to spend more time waiting on someone to come to my house to look at the furniture. I did not accept because I don't think that they will be able to fix the couch.

Getting more jaded with Macys by the day,
Misty

10/22/2007

Update- Macys came out to the house repaired the $2600 couch and is having to send four new legs to me for the couch because they were all broken. Ahh.. quality! You can't ask for more. Macys headquarters has not responded and I never spoke with the manager from the store who attempted to contact me we played phone tag for three weeks. Well I'm now stuck with a $2600 couch that was not showroom quality when I got it. Still waiting on the legs to the couch. I'll update when I know more.

Coupons are worthless
By -

CUYAHOGA FALLS, OHIO -- I received a gift card for Macys on Christmas (2009) so first thing Saturday morning I printed off the 15% off coupon as well as a second which I cannot remember since I wadded it up and left it with the cashier not worth the paper I wasted to print them on.
I purchased my mother a set of winter pajamas and a couple of kitchen items on the second floor of the Chapel Hill Macys and tried to use my coupon there and I was told that it was not applicable on anything I purchased even though the fine print did not exclude the items I purchased so I took the coupon back as I saw something downstairs I liked also and wanted to use up my giftcard. At the second registar I purchased and inexpensive DVD player and you guessed it...that cashier said the coupon was not able to be used. I heard others complaining about this same problem and even the cashier was hissing and complaining that they were worthless. I printed them off and they would not scan. The bar code was perfect. HMMMMM My Husband even heard these same issues being discussed on the radio. I WILL NEVER shop at this rip off store again. I will not purchase another gift card for any family member. They bait to get you into the store and do not honor their own coupons. There are plenty of other stores that chose to do business by honoring the sales coupons...I had not one issue at Penny's using their after Christmas coupons so they will get my business in the future. I wonder how many more compaints it will take to put an end to this. Who will take over Macys after they go under for these type of practices? Macys stores in the past were O'neils, then Kauffman's, now Macy's...You would think they would be bending over backwards to retain business not lose it. I will spend my hard earned money elsewhere. This needs to be investigated and I am sure it will be.

Online Customer Service Is the Worst
StarEmpty StarEmpty StarEmpty StarEmpty StarBy -
Rating: 1/51

I order a lot online and by far, Macys.com is one of the worst! Before my items even arrived, there was already a lower price and a larger discount percentage offered. I completed an online form for a price adjustment and asked about the discount. The only thing that was addressed was the discount with the answer of "no, you can't have the higher discount". Then the customer service person proceeded to tell me the higher discount was not even valid, which it was, I tried it online. So I emailed back a second time and asked them to please answer my question about the price adjustment and again I was given the same answer about the discount code, I guess because I told them that it did indeed work. All I know is that with prices and discounts changing so frequently, I will never purchase from them again and now I don't even want what I ordered, so I will be returning all the items. I am surprised that Macy's would operate this badly. Avoid the aggravation and shop someplace where your business is appreciated.
