Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. Complaint - Don't Get Ripped Off Shopping Here
Dick's has a reward program that for every so much you purchase, you receive points that eventually turn into dollars. Sounds like a good deal right? No! First, I had a certificate worth $20 and when I checked out, they did not give me the whole amount and the clerk said she could not fix it. It was a $20 certificate and they gave me $19.50. Why is that? Then, the way the program works, if you purchase two items, the purchase is split between the items rather than taken off the total purchase. If you purchase something then have to return it for ANY reason, you lose your reward dollars. I recently purchased two items, each was $100, for a total of $200. I had a $20 reward certificate so they took $10 off each item. One of the items was defective. When I returned it to the store, they did not have the same item so I could not exchange it. The store would not let me get a different brand, or place an order online to use the dollars on the original purchase. All they would do is return the item and it ate my reward dollars. The store told me to call the customer service number and complain. I did and they just said, "sorry, that is our policy".
What a terrible policy! I could have spent all $20 on socks and been better off. In these days of bad economic times, I will never purchase another item from Dick's. The name says everything about the store!
