Dicks Sporting Goods Complaint - Dicks Sporting Goods replacement plan is a scam!
BRANDON, FLORIDA -- I purchased a "no-hassle replacement plan" for my Minn Kota trolling motor earlier this year. My motor stopped working and I filed a claim with them. I have had a warranty replacement request open for months now and have yet to receive the replacement card. At first they said that the request was lost in the mail and that it would take 30 days for them to stage it as "lost" and could then issue me a replacement card. Once the 30 days passed they said they were going to send it. I received a call a few days later stating that I had to resend them "proof of purchase" again because they had to have proof that I purchased the item (How would I purchase the warranty without purchasing the item?) I ended up sending the 2nd proof of purchase and the UPS tracking system shows it as received on September 27th, 2011. I called today, October 18th, asking where my replacement card was and they said they never received my proof of purchase and they will have to wait the 30 days again to mark it as "lost" to issue me a card and that it would be sent out 10-15 business days after the 30 days are up, as long as I call them again on October 21st to inform them I have not received it. They told me there is no option for them to expedite the time line no matter what the issue. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS. THEY HOPE YOU GIVE UP AND THEY NEVER HAVE TO SEND YOU A REPLACEMENT CARD.
