  • Disappointed

    Asus VivoBook 16X Laptop, AMD Ryzen 7 Processor, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 16" Full HD, SilverI purchased this laptop on 17/08/23 and it arrived a few days later. This product is not as advertised, it does not have a backlit keyboard. The photos show the backlit icon on the F7 key and there is no mention of the laptop being non-backlit in the product description.I reached out to John Lewis who told me that they would pass my issue to the Distribution Service Desk team. The response from this team was:This has been raised before with this laptop.This laptop does not have a backlit keyboard and there is nothing on the product description or specification to suggest that it does. The issue lies in an image that the suppliers have provided that shows a keyboard with a backlight button.Our online team is working with the suppliers to amend this image online.I was then offered a £10 giftcard and told that I could request a refund/exchange in-store, which I explained was not convenient for me and that I had ordered online for a reason.The last response from John Lewis was on 24/08/23, My last email was sent on 25/08/23 expressing that I did not wish to receive a gift-card and that it is disappointing to be told to go to a John Lewis store when I had purchased online.I no longer feel as though I can trust John Lewis advertisements and I’m sorry to say that I do not feel secure in purchasing from them in the future.

  • John Lewis has finally lost my custom, after forty years.

    I have been a lifelong customer of John Lewis; my late Husband worked for them.I have witnessed it's sad decline, in recent years; from Waitrose stores closing, to the loss of "Never Knowingly Undersold" and Staff losing their bonuses.However, upper Management don't appear to lose their huge payouts, despite running this once, quintessential British stalwart of the high street, into the ground!I'm put off from shopping there now because Staff hover and pester and grab items from me and take them to the checkout.I'm perfectly capable of carrying my shopping and I feel as though I'm under surveillance.Unlike alot of people these days, it seems; I actually pay for the items I want!I have purchased items online, as I feel intimidated when I shop in the Newcastle store; only for these to either be damaged or entirely the wrong item!I then have to make the journey into the City, to return the items, as using Evri is a hellish experience.I doubt I will shop with this store again.It's become like everywhere else; lacking service.An unpleasant shopping experience, after forty loyal years, as a customer, that I do not wish to ever repeat.

  • Warning customer service is appalling

    It is such a shame you have lovely products John Lewis, but your customer service is appalling. I am still waiting for a manager to call me. You really do need to invest in some training for your customer service. I have been passed from department to department, been constantly fobbed off. Provide wrong information. After been a loyal customer for many years, this experience had made me think twice about purchasing from you in the future. This is the 1st time I have ever needed to contact customer service and as well as been extremely frustrated it has certainly been eye opening, how you treat your customers!!!

    I received a £50 gift voucher from my work as a thank you, out of all the companies I could choose from, I chose John Lewis as I usually like their products. I purchased a pair of Barbour shoes online and they did not fit so I returned them. This is over a month ago, I have called 4 times, been passed around, been told I will receive an email with the voucher code, and still no word, it's like I need to keep chasing to get anywhere, very frustrating.

    • Washer & Dryer - Faulty

      we bought a fridge frizer and washer dryer. washer dryer is faulty. When i called John lewis customer services they told me that i need to talk with OEM which is Bosch. Literally, we cannot use it and still awaiting feedback from Bosch. I don't understand that how come a brand new machine cannot work and I have to wait an engineer to come and fix the machine. very poor service!

    • Very disappointed

      First time ever have I had to write a negative review about John Lewis So I have an email to say that my mattress top had been recalledAs I am not near a Jl I arranged for them to collect it. I asked if they were going to refund my original postage and she said no, u received the goods and it’s only the item that has been recalled. Seems a bit unfairYour message back to me seems to indicate that you have missed my point completely!! I understand that item had been recalled and for a very good reasonMy point is that you are NOT refunding my original postage that I paid to get my item delivered which I think is unfair and do not understand the reasoning behind this.

    • Failure to honour laptop guarantee and asking for money for repairs without providing report

      Purchased a laptop in July as a gift. Mid August it stops working. Return under the 2-year guarantee. Have to chase them for an update, and am told they have no idea what's wrong with it. Next day I get an email saying there is evidence of accidental damage, however they fail to provide a report detailing what exactly this is. They do however demand more money from me to fix it. Called to get the report - and of course the call operative doesn't have access to it, but they are, yes, you guessed, happy to take my payment. Complete lack of transparency, and the operative actually told me that they don't supply the engineer report. Which is alarming to think of how many people have been ripped off in this way. If you offer a guarantee - honour it, don't try to con honest, hardworking customers by extorting them for more money. How these people sleep at night is beyond me. That said, the engineer who contacted me definitely could do with a bit more shut eye - given they want me to respond to them before May 2023. Fyi - that's long gone. If you can't work out the date - are you really capable of assessing a laptop?! Completely dishonest behaviour, topped off with the worst customer service I have ever experienced.

    • Poor Build Quality

      Having moved into our new home two weeks ago, we’ve bought several items from John Lewis, some of them high value, and had them delivered.On Monday evening we had an expensive new TV and a separate stand worth £300 (with an additional building fee of £70) delivered.Roughly a third of the way through building the stand, the fitters found that it had a manufacturing fault and so it had to be returned.This stand was then out of stock, so we opted for a refund of the price and the cost of installation.This afternoon, we’ve had a £350 coffee table delivered (with an additional £20 building fee on top) and guess what??… yes, it also had a manufacturing error and has had to be returned!This is very poor show John Lewis, and has really inconvenienced us, I suggest you are buying goods from suppliers who are not up to your expected high standards.I’m sorry, but our belief that your goods are top quality has been really shaken. This is the kind of shoddy build quality I’d expect from a budget furniture store or (dare I say it?) IKEA!!We’ll be shopping elsewhere for the rest of our furniture!

    • Bosch washing machine

      Bought a washing machine online and it was quite straightforward and very easy to find what I was looking for as the website was well laid out. Very impressed with the after sales communications and reliable delivery. Even although I gave my mobile number incorrectly therefore the delivery men couldn’t alert me that they were minutes away but they still arrived in the time stated. Both gents were polite and friendly. The gent who actually installed the machine was extremely pleasant and he explained everything we needed to know. He also made sure he left no mess or any litter behind. Unfortunately I didn’t get his name but he is an asset to your store with his excellent customer care and service. MANY THANKS

    • Purchased a very expensive Fridge…

      Purchased a very expensive Fridge freezer from John Lewis which completely failed just after 2 years. Repairs company have written off. Getting any response from John Lewis has taken numerous 50mins calls and we still do have a resolution or any response to complaint. Was told several times a response would be received in 24/48 hours but nothing. Still chasing and waiting. No fridge or freezer in the home and we have children, plus we have lost weeks of time and a whole load of food. By the way the email address to complain to on the website just gives you a bounce back to say that it is no longer in use so don't bother using that! Twice I have phoned John Lewis and asked to log a complaint about the lack of customer care but twice been told I wasn't able to and if they did no one would respond as it is a technical matter. Finally logged a complaint but over 48 hours and still nothing. Please do not buy from this company if you think the customer service is worth the extra! It will drive you in sane. Never again !!!

    • DO NOT buy your tech from John Lewis...

      Awful customer service. My Apple Airpods broke just after the warranty expired and having attempted repair with Apple, they advised me to pursue with John Lewis under the Consumer Rights Act as I have a valid case. I did so and John Lewis proceeded to send me round the houses to discuss the matter given it was purchased by a family member as a gift - I had to get authentication from them which involved them having to ring up. I'm then spelled out no less that 3 times exactly what report I needed to have to have a valid CRA claim. Off back to the Apple Store I go at my own cost and inconvenience to get said report - at which point the technician confirms the issue, provides the exact report and explains that if I had purchased direct from Apple they would exchange them then and there free of charge...I send the report back to JL as requested at which point they tell me not only are the legal team only available to discuss this between the unhelpful hours of 9-5.30, but I am also not authorised to deal with said legal team under any circumstances despite the Airpods being registered to me. Hence I have to fully brief and drag my family member into the conversation, at which point they have to ring the JL centre twice to discuss the case, further wasting everyone elses time and energy.Then the legal team tell us that despite me having the exact report JL customer services told me I needed for this, the information given by the representative was wrong (yes really, the information they gave me three times) and that they would be rejecting the case. After 5 days going round the houses trekking all over the place to try and get this sorted.Absolutely shocking service not only to completely waste my time and money, but also my family member's and then to clearly not offer to fulfill their duty regarding CRA as other providers would have done.Lesson learned - do not buy branded products from JL, buy from the brands direct. Was previously an advocate of JL but you really see a brands true colours when things go wrong.Very disappointed and frustrated and would like this formal complaint to be investigated thoroughly and resolved.To top it off, conversations being cut off, not one single review request in all the many conversations to share my experience of the customer service - says it all really...

      Shocking shocking service. Placed an order on Sat for delivery Monday. No contact from John Lewis to say you weren't fulfilling the order. Then told to cancel the order and place again and spend 1 hour on web chat and over an hour on the phone checking delivery would happen. They assured they would fulfil the order. I reached out today to find out yet again, they won't fulfil. No payment issue as the bank confirms the payment is approved and ready to be taken. Where has your customer service gone? Can you not tell the truth? Are you no longer interested in customers?21:22 Update,Dave, your customer service team have been in contact but you have some serious process issues which need resolving. Three conversations this evening since your response and no one can tell me when my order will be packed, shipped & delivered. Thanks for taking the money from my bank account....

      Unfortunately you cannot leave less than one star. Service is not a word or action that JL seem to understand or acknowledge. We have a Semens dishwasher which developed a major fault. Seimens were marvellous with there customer service. The engineer said it was such a major fault that he would recommed a replacement.It would mean having two engineers strip down the machine to its bare bones all in our tiny kitchen.JL were given the ok by Seimens to provide an exchange or a refund.Only in nobody seemed to follow this instruction .Even though they had been offered a credit so it was not going to cost JL a thing . However 3 weeks later and after 3 visits in store 12 phone calls endless emails some of which were made during our summer holidays (from Turkey it is costly) Nobody calls you back and no one lives up to their promises. Further more they do not care even when you are disabled . They promised to reimburse us for our out of pocket expenses. Parking,phone calls, but nothing is forth coming. They are the most despicable company that I have ever had to deal with. I will never purchase anything again from them they are not worth the frustration and upset.

      We were given £100 card for our wedding. Card purchased in Feb 21. Wedding date cancelled due to covid, then we had trouble moving house. Trying to cash John Lewis card today but it has expired as over for 2 years. If we had logged in to check in the 2 year period it would have reset the clock but we didn't know that. Feels like daylight robbery.UPDATE - spent ages on chat going round in circles. Then was hung up on despite being polite. Finally spoke to a helpful human in Gift Card Query department (03301234024) who sorted it straight away. Just needed to be able to speak to a person. Apparently the WhatsApp group etc do not even deal with gift cards although that is where I was sent originally.

    • I have had a very bad experience with…

      I have had a very bad experience with the customer services team. They need training in, firstly, providing contact information of relevant departments and, secondly, dealing with any consumer law related issues.My laptop suddenly, with hardly any use, switched off completely. I was told that the repairs costs would be excessive. My laptop is only 3 years old and only really been used frequently for its first year. As a consumer, I have the right to have a product which is fit for purpose. I initially went into the John Lewis store on 02/09/2023 which only gave me a tech support and customer services number. They said they are completed separate from the head office. I then called that same day and the telephone attendant was relatively helpful, he asked for a quote from Apple for the repairs cost. I was able to email this to him. He said he will try to email their legal team to deal with this but their legal team does not work on weekends and he said he could not simply leave them a message to look at on Monday. I was told to call again on Monday.I called again on Monday. I explained the issue and the first attendant could not explain their response clearly so I asked for someone more senior, she said yes but then hang up on me. Throughout this call, I was on hold for around 20 min. I then called again and reached another attendant who said that consumer laws do not apply to me because I need to pay for the first repair myself. I was not given a postal address, an email nor a phone number to any other related department upon request. I was told they could not even email me this conversations' written confirmation or anything quite frankly. I then asked for where they got this rule that I had to pay for the first repair. They could not respond to this. They said go to the citizens advice bureau. I asked for the attendant to send an internal message to the legal team and asked if I could trust him to do that. He was meant to send 2 sentences. He said I had to stay on hold for him to do that. I told him I had a meeting at work and could only wait so long. I was on hold for 15 min and left my phone on hold at my desk as I was went on with work. He was not capable of sending a 2 line email without me being on hold and within a minute or so apparently. This particular call lasted around 40 min in total. Throughout all correspondence, they maintained that my warranty of 2 years was expired so they could not help. I had to keep referring to my rights as a consumer. They found it very difficult to appreciate this. They kept changing their responses essentially as to why they could not pay for the repairs of a laptop which had a faulty design issue clearly caused by the product. I did not sign an agreement with John Lewis by paying for this laptop with the knowledge that my laptop would randomly break down after 3 years. This is not what I paid for nor agreed to.

    • Just as an update to my 1 star review…

      Just as an update to my 1 star review on John Lewis last week (and John Lewis's subsequent comment) - this is part of the email response I received yesterday from John Lewis: "...we made contact to notify you where the order had been delivered within the quoted delivery lead time (5 days). From our notes, it shows you made initial contact on Saturday 9th August and we then followed this up less than 24 hours later to provide an update, however we were unfortunately not able to reach you at the time...." - Saturday 9th August is not actually a date this year but note, you were unable to contact me as I was where I said I would be - on holiday! When I spoke to your despatch team initially they said "do you know how long DHL take to answer a phone", which isn't to be fair my issue, and I think it was reasonable of me to expect you to know where my order had been delivered to. But in addition to the other points you raise in your email where you acknowledge I didn't receive the correct notifications on my delivery, the comment I've copied and pasted into this review seems to suggest that the two working days you took to get back to me to tell me where DHL had delivered the parcel to was acceptable as you could tell me within five working days of my overall order placement where my order was. This would imply that you think it's acceptable to deliver my parcel after three days and then take another two working days to actually tell me where it is (for reference, I live at number 18 and it was delivered I think to number 54 - so not even a close neighbour). What I actually did, was take the photo DHL sent to me and walk up and down my road looking for a door and doormat that resembled the photo. Is that good service? Separately, please privately message me with the number of someone of managerial level who I can speak to regarding this as well as the laptop fiasco (which included me buying a broken laptop and the subsequent bad service I then experienced in Stratford Westfield). All of what I'm typing can be proven - nothing is defamatory, but sadly, I think that putting this info in the public realm is the only way to improve service.

    • DO NOT BUY TVS FROM JOHN LEWIS.

      I bought a £4000 75 inch 8k Samsung TV less than two years ago in November of 2021. I paid for John Lewis 5 year cover at the same time which stated if any fault occured they would repair the TV and if they couldn't they would replace with the nearest equivalent or the selling cost. I reported the TV faulty in Jun 2023, after the team took two months to replace the TV screen they brought it back with lots of damages and then the TV completely stopped working a month after that. They explained they couldn't repair it so they offered me a 75 inch 4k Sony TV or £3500 to buy a different TV. This is not the nearest equivalent specification as it's 4k not 8k and they have two 75 inch 8k Samsung's on their website, granted a little more expensive than mine, I said I was willing to pay the difference. I have requested that they give me the selling cost of my TV, an extra £500 so I can put the extra £600 towards an 8k model on their website but they have refused going against their policy if matching the nearest equivalent specification or selling cost and left me with no tv and extremely unsatisfied. DO NOT EVER BUY EXPENSIVE TVS OR INSURANCE POLICIES FROM JOHN LEWIS. IF THE TV BREAKS THEY WILL GO AGAINST THEIR POLICIES AND YOU WILL BE OUT OF POCKET.

    • Mistreatment of women and mothers

      I ordered a bouncy chair for my newborn baby, and it’s time sensitive so I paid extra for next day delivery, click and collect. It was confirmed as delivered to the designated location. When I arrived it wasn’t there. After speaking to customer service, they’re not doing anything. John Lewis refuses to deliver the chair until their investigation is complete which is totally unacceptable. Why do I, the customer, have to pay for their incompetence? I need the chair and they’re holding my money hostage and have not delivered on their promise. I will never again order from there. The customer service rep had no empathy for a new mother.

    • Very Poor Service in John Lewis Opticians in Reading

      I went into John Lewis Reading opticians today to look at glasses options. I already have an up to date prescription. I was looking at glasses between £129 and £209 and found 2 pairs. There was one assistant available so I asked her some questions. I wanted to know about varifocles and asked if she knew what lenses they sell. The response I got was tersely said in a passive/aggressive way, 'of course I know, I'm selling them' and then looked at me and scoffed a bit. I was very taken aback at this response so said that I just wanted to know what type of lens they sell and the range of options. She pulled out a sheet containing the information which had 4 lens options all from Varilux. She told me that she'd not recommend to anyone to get the 2 cheaper options as they're no good and said she recommended the Superior Physio priced at £380 and the Essilor Varilux priced at £520 both of which have the extra wide reading and distance areas amongst extras for the lens. I currently have the most basic standard lens which I get along with fine and which has the smallest distance and reading area. John Lewis sell this type of lens for £100 and then a slightly better one the Advanced Varilux at £260. I don't need to wear my glasses all the time, only for the TV, shopping, to look in a mirror, as my middle distance is very slightly out of focus. I use the varifocles to read labels and if I'm on my phone whilst watching TV. The Standard or Advanced Varilux would be more than adequate for me. I explained this and the assistant still kept pushing the more expensive lenses which I don't need despite me saying they would be overkill for my prescription and for my usage. I had to be quite forceful and it became quite uncomfortable. This hard sell and the fact that I was being pushed to buy something much more expensive that I do not want or need put me off going to the opticians for my glasses. My husband was with me and he agreed. I am very disappointed that I received this service which prompted me to write a review. Had a manager been available, I'd have complained directly. It's a lost sale for John Lewis opticians in Reading and an unimpressed customer who will spread the word not to use them!
