Lowes - Holding my money against my will
I purchased a Maytah Washer / Dryer combo on 9/ 2 / 2014. Lowe's thru their own fault billed my debit card once and put a hold on the full amount of the debit thus tying up 2,000 dollars of my money.I have made several attempts with the local Lowes store and the corporate hot line. I only have gotten the run around and the pass the blame around game. One broken promise after another combined with a lack of caring and no urgency to help my bank release the hold.They claim that just wait seven to ten days for their system to run its course. My bank has advised them that all that is needed for an imediate reversal of this hold on my money is an official O.K. from Lowes, something that Lowe's promises it will do but doesn't care enough to do .At this point it appears that over 1, 000 dollars from my checking account already tied up for 4 days will be tied up at best for another 4 to 5 days and problem longer than that..Lowes has offered no apology ,no reconciliation strategy and no perk for my trouble , time and inconvenience. If you want to shop at a store that gives a darn about correcting their mistakes Then don't shop at LOWE'S !!!
Reason of review
Problems with payment
release my hold on my money imediate and give me a price reduction for my trouble
LOWES accepts responsibility for roof done wrong or do they?
Contracted lowes for new roof, installers arrive, start bringing shingles up and I asked where did you get those., they were brown and all else black, he actually said I thought you picked it., ok shingle dilemma fixed, roof put on, I then was having a new ac installed, not thru lowes, and he took pictures of attic where they installed roof over rotted wood., called lowes, they want to patch it, MIKE ROSE, of ocala, said no problem, yes you paid for new roof, but this is fine, you'll do it my way and be fine! so up the corp. ladder I have been going, only to reach STEVE DARLING, and be told take this money or go to court. It's not enough to put a new roof on, THE right way! I laugh because the hole turned out to be least of my problems, shingles installed by WALKER ROOFING, not in line, 3 roofers came to look at my roof, and one just laughed, and then told me my permit was wrong, wasn't under walker roofing. OMG where does this nightmare end! COURT according to mr. DARLING..
Reason of review
Damaged or defective
Reimburse me for what an actual new roof will cost, including all the screw ups!
Lowes - Review about Water Heater from El Cajon, California
Bought hot water heater and told it would be installed on wed. But the plumber never called. After related calls to Loews they finally set up appt. Thurs. but then decided they needed two people and charge more but need Loews to OK contract change. After repeated calls to Loews and promises of call backs with information, still no results.... And no water.
Bad Service Review
Every time I go there they only have one register open. Today there were at least 17 customers in the one open lane so I left. I will never ever return to a lowes store.
Lowes in Frederick, Maryland - Still waiting for the call to schedule delivery tomorrow. It's now 10pm
Ordered a dishwasher more than 2 weeks ago. Scheduled delivery for tomorrow but they don't give you the time. They say they will call ahead of time and give you a window of time. No call. I call the store and they say they will call before 9pm. Why so late? But who cares why so late because they still haven't called. At 9pm I call the store and they say call another number. It's the number for the company they outsource delivery too. On hold for 20 minutes and I give up. I call Lowe's customer service and am on hold for 20 minutes and I give up. I tweet a nastygram to Lowes and am told to go to a website and register and fill out a form. Seriously? Meanwhile my email to their CEO gets a reply. But she's only going to be at work for another 20 minutes. 20 minutes later and no call. Am I getting a dishwasher tomorrow or not? Am I bound to my house all day only to find out there is no dishwasher coming? What about my plumber who needs to install the dishwasher. Now I've messed with his day and schedule. Not sure if he is even working for the rest of the week.
Lowes - Warranty Review
I made a purchase on Friday 8.29.14 for a washer, dryer and a microwave per sale man it would be available for del on Monday 9.1.14 the dryer was not in Stock I let the sales man know I prefer Thursday 9.4.14 he said no problem everything was set up microwave would take 14 days because it's a bisque color and it would be a special other I said fine no problem I was willing to wait on the microwave today at 1:11 to be exact I get a call the washer is not available only the dryer. Which I could not understand since the washer was in Stock Friday just not dryer so that means the washer I paid for with my other item was sold to someone else . The gentleman said oh did they tell you the washer is not available I said they who I made this purchase with your company who is they he didn't answer and said he could not explained what happen nor he even said I'm sorry for the error nothing. I spoke to customer service in the store which they are no help because they cared zero about the situation, I came into the store cancel my order and I paid 1455.for three items but lowes was trying to give me back 1332. Instead I said to the cashier the amount is incorrect look at the receipt cashier and another cashier were speaking loudly two each other about person life and how she going home in 1 hr 20 minutes while my cancelation is being processed incorrectly. At this rate I'm irritated I explained she did not credit me for the warranty. She had to do another transaction to credit the difference and during this whole ordeal no one even apologies for the error it amazed me not even customer service which is what they are there for to service which in this case it was a waste of time. So as a customer I took my money paid 100.00 more to another retailer's because it's not the money it was the principal behind it. If someone would had acknowledge the error and said sorry. I would of been a happy customer but the lack of courtesy it's disappointing and alarming if they treated me this was imagine how many other customers and the out come is same.
Lowes - Delivery Service Review
Lowes has the worst customer service EVER. 2.5 years ago we purchased a new matching samsung front load washer and dryer. Purchased the 4 year extended protection plan for the just in case something happens. Well my Samsung washer is now broke so I called to have lowes send out someone to repair the washer. The nice polite guy comes in runs some diagnostic program on it and found out was was wrong. He worked up his cost for the repairs well it came to over 300.00 and lowes service co says well the cost is greater then 300.00 so the washer isn't worth the repair. Lowe's then says we will issue you a credit for the cost of the washer plus tax. The problem I have with this is the washer was purchased during a black Friday sale so we didn't pay full price for the set. So now because both lowes and samsung will not cover their product I now have to come out of pocket more than 400.00 to get a new washer not only that but I have to wait 10 business days for the credit and then another freaking 14 days for the washer to be delivered to the store then we can schedule delivery. WTF kind of customer service is by either company. We purchased samsung because we have never had issues with them before on their other products that we have purchased and we have spent thousands at lowes on home repair things and appliances. I'm not looking to get something for free but when something only last 2.5 years I would THINK they would want to make things right. Screw lowes and samsung I will not shop there nor will I buy another samsung product.

Lowes - Gift Card Review from Conway, Arkansas
Bought 440 square feet of vinyl planks for floors, only to find half way through the job 3 boxes were defective! They were different colors and would NOT stick.Went back with photos and asked what we should do, by their recommendations we glued the planks with a separate purchase of a glue they recommended! After a job that should have taken just hours, it took a week of replacing or repairing.We were also told to bring back the defective planks, so we did! Now...not only did this take much longer than it should have, now we have mismatched planks....The flooring manager after I showed him photos and what we had to go through just to finish this job, had the nerve to say that I WAS BEING DISHONEST on how many planks were defective! 3 boxes, all of which were bad got returned in pieces parts, because that's what it took to remove and replace them! They sell inferior product and then have the nerve to call ME dishonest! 2nd run in with dishonesty at lowes! The first time an appliance employees sold my daughter a water heater and overflow tank, the overflow tank couldn't be used so that got returned, only to be told it had already been returned and the amount was put on a Lowes gift card!. Long story short, turns out that appliance employee did it by showing in their system that it was returned and he collected a gift card! Shame on Lowes dirty practices!
Lowes Gift Card
Lowes - Review
We bought a $350 troybuilt lawnmower in 09/2013 with 2 year man warranty. Stopped working less than 1 year from purchase date. My husband takes excellent care of his equipment and was only used for small residential city yard during summer months. Now, Lowe's cannot find evidence of purchase though I have my credit card purchase information incl name, date of purchase, and cc #. Ridiculous waste of money. Last time I EVER purchase ANYTHING from Lowe's.
Lowes - Review from Columbus, Georgia
I purchased a refridgerator that was "in stock" with my debit card on Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Not only did I not get the next day delivery as advertised (it wasn't delivered until Tuesday), but it was an old beat up floor model. We called and were offered a replacement of a different model, but due to nothing in stock it'll take 2 weeks for a fridge. Now im stuck using coolers until I get my refund which will take 2 or 3 days. This is horrible and no compensation for their errors. Horrible.
