Worst experience EVER

I bought my son a Framing nailer for Christmas, When he opened it, it was a return item – Pictures of kids, employee ID and missing parts. I had a gift receipt and told him that Sears would replace this. He went to the store I purchased it at and was told: That is why it was on clearance, and they wanted to charge him for the missing part. Well when I purchased it I was told: it was new, it was a clearance item. Well my son took a gift card because he saw it on-line and it could be ordered (for the same price)and have it sent to a store. He went home and ordered it, using his gift card he just received. Well then he recieved a e-mail that one COULD NOT BE LOCATED. He called customer service and was told that his gift card was zero and another one will be mailed to him in 5-10 days. BUT he could buy another one now and receive a 15% discount BUT he would need to use another credit card (becasue his gift card is ZERO). What a gimac… If I had known this was a return with Missing parts I would not have purchased this in the first place, I WAS TOLD IT WAS NEW. Now i spent 149.07 and my son has no gift and no gift card because they used the money for something NOT in stock. I am contacting my credt card company and telling them I did not receive this product. I will NEVER by a power tool from sears, neither will my SON. Please give me a number to call…

At your convenience please contact our office via email at and a dedicated case manager will contact you directly.
