  1. Saving Money Just read on MSN news that Sears is in deep financial do-do. NO KIDDING, the way they do buisness, who is surprised??? Who runs this idiot manned company anyway?? Why can I NOT pay my SEARS card or Sears city bank card @ a Sears store with my debit card??? But I can pay those same bills @ a KMART????? Rediculous. # 1 rule in buisness is TAKE THE MONEY ANY LEGAL WAY YOU CAN...... About 9 months ago, we went to Sears "scratch & dent" in Monroeville, Pa. to purchase a refrigerator. Found one we liked ($1,849.00), It was too big to fit into our house with the refrigerator doors on. The sales lady told us the the delivery guys can't remove the doors due to wires and water lines????? This unit had water, ice cubes and crushed ice in the door. Left there, went to Lowe's and found a Frigidair brand, just beautiful. All the same features >>> Ice, cubes/crushed + water and area light in the door. LED internal lighting, wheels for easy moving, best of everything. It was still too big but was told "removing the doors was no problem at all. I saved over $700.00, delivered the next day, old unit hauled away,,, WE WERE EXTREMELY SATISFIED WITH LOWE'S.... Speaking of Lowe's,,, about 2 years ago I went to Sears @ Century 3 Mall in West Mifflin, Pa. I needed 7 each of refrigerators, stoves & dishwashers for my son's apartment building. The salesman said "I'll be glad to help you, I'll be right back" Waited 20-30 minutes and NEVER saw him again. Went to Lowe's and was IMMEDIATLY taken care of. WAKE UP SEARS,, you lost over 3 billion in 2010 - over 900 million in 2011 and over 1 billion in the first 3 quarters of 2013???????? Remember this " Sears NEEDs consumers, consumers don't need Sears".

  2. Saving Money This is the second time I'm sending this ---------------- I am getting really frustrated and fed up with Sears bill paying policy. I deal EVERYWHERE with a debit card. At Sears, a debit card is not accepted for "in store" payments of a sears credit card although it can be used for purchases. This I find ridiculous and troubling. The crazy thing is that I CAN pay this bill with my debit card at any K-MART store??????? ****, even my paper boy swipes my debit card with a gadget on his cell phone??? I don't keep any cash in excess of $50.00 on my person or in the house. I am 63 years old and a victim of crime 3 times. I will not put my debit card #s on the internet, I will not write checks & lick stamps. I deal with a debit card for everything, the world runs on debit cards. WalMart, the largest company in the history of the planet, - did you ever look at how they deal with this, they bend over backwards to get you to make a purchase & once you commit to that transaction, they will take any legal for of payment you offer, that's the way it's done. Being a businessman for 47 years, selling out to retire in 2012, the most important thing I learned is "TAKE THE MONEY" be set up to take any and all forms of payment you can think of and make it easy, convenient and stress free for the customer. I have been having problems at Sears stores in recent years. About 16-18 months ago, I went to your West Mifflin store to arrange for appliances for my sons apartment building. I needed 7 each of refrigerators - ranges & built in dishwashers. The salesman said "I'll be right back", I never saw him again so I went to Lowes Home Improvement at the Waterfront who jumped all over it. Then in March I saw a reconditioned Lawn tractor at the same West Mifflin store for 1.200.00 I think. Went back the following Sunday & was told they were locked up in package pick up and I would need to come back on Monday, went to the same Lowes again & bought a beaut. I'll say this again "TAKE THE MONEY". I will most likely be closing my accounts (2) with Sears in August or September because you make it hard and inconvenient to give you THE MONEY. At my age, I am all about convenience
