Sears Complaint - Sears Credit Card and their fee scams
Well, I've heard all the horror stories about Sears and have to say I was skeptical of them; man, was I wrong.
I just got my Sears CC bill and the only thing on there was a $39 fee for a late payment. I went back and found that I'd paid from my bank the week before the bill was due and they said that Sears accepted the electronic transfer the day they had sent it.
So, I called Sears to straighten out the misunderstanding and found that when they apply the payment is the key. They held the payment for 4 days before applying it; 4 days. Now just how is that legal?
Oh, they then proceeded to blame my bank for the problem. WTF? How is my bank responsible for Sears holding my payment???
I've stopped buying anything at Sears a while back and I'll never step foot in one of their stores again.
Oh, and I'm posting this on every consumer site I can find. It's the least I can do for the scumbags.
