Prices

Fingerhut is a scam they sell the ipod nano for $249.99 when everyone else sells for $149.99. I sent and email and got no response for a week so I called. They could not give me a reason why they sell higher and acted like a asked a hard question, the first lady trans. me to her supervisor becasue she did not know what to say. The supervisor said that they sell the same as other customer I told her no you sell for $100 ,asked if she can check if they mismarked she said that was the price.. I closed my acct. right away. They seem to over charge for items and people dont evern knoe if they dont compare with other websites.

I bought a Ipod for $249. When I realized it was overpriced I sent it back unopened.

Now they claim I owe for it, I've made one payment. I'm poor too, and on a fixed income. I know I shoudn't have ordered it, but now I'm stuck. It's made me so mad I'm shaking, and I'm 70 years old.

I knew better, but I thought the post office would confirm delivery.

What a bunch of thiefs.

Fingerhut's interest rate is 24.99%, higher than any other catalog outlet.

Their prices are marked up more than 50%.

Fingerhut's prices are higher so they can make money, at the same time they are extending the credit. Not much different then paying interest on a credit card.[/quote]

Actually, they already charge interest for their products to make money. They are selling, for example, the Nintendo DSi, for about 249$,which is only about 129$ at Gamestop. Not only that, but they are charging at least 20% interest on that price (another 50$).

Fingerhut sells credit and below quality merchandise you have to take your chance: I had to get my Mom to stop getting their cheap over priced ***: Dont fall into the trap: If you want something wait for a sale from a real retailer-or-just save up and pay cash its the BEST way: Good luck

I know their prices are much higher than anyone or any place that sells merchandise. Most low income people are given credit at Finger hut so you can say it is just another corporation stealing from the poor to pay their rich pockets.

I admit I shopped there for Christmas but then again it is the only place I have credit and I happen to be one of those Poor folks. :cry

I bought a Kitchenaid Stand mixer. Paid over $600 for it. The same one sells in most stores for $265. I paid for the extended warranty. Before it was even paid off, the motor started growling so I called for service. I had to call for 3 months with multiple promises...

Fingerhut does not like to honor their warranties. they give you a run around and tell you multiple times that they've sent a refund on your product.

When you don't receive the refund, then they tell you it was sent another day. I just want to pay them off and never do business with them again.

You know, if you were to publish your telephone number, SSN & mother's maiden name, you'd get much better resolution of your complaint.

You ***! You're obviously a COMPLETE ***!

Perhaps Fingerhut meant you were BRAIN DEAD! This is a website for people all over the world to vent about problems they've had with ANY company or professional service! This is not the complaint department for Fingerhut! You actually posted your complete name and address for all the world to see!

I hope you start getting junk mail and are harassed by every scam organization out there! You deserve it!

Fingerhut Sells *** Jewelry

Wedding set bought in Nov 07, started wearing in Dec 07. In May the diamond tier fell off, had it repaired myself. In June the band broke in two. I called to try and exchange it, they tell me there is only a 30 day return policy. I told her since I didn't want a credit, I only wanted to exchange it, they should extend the policy due to the item being jewelry (14K Jewelry!!). They refused. That's *** when it comes to jewelry, they should last longer 6months. They refuse to work anything out. I will never do business with them again. Worst company, worst policies, *** merchandise!

The worst customer service at fingerhut, a stoe without any scruples

Fingerhut is some the worst customer service I have ever seen, it is nothing more than a sham,. They should be driven out of business for terrible products and very very very terrible service. I purchased a tool chest that came damaged and they informed they would not ship a new one until, they had that one back. This process would take a month or more. They didn't care if I called or complained to any one, they do not have any sense of good customer service. Fimgerhut is a organization I will never do business with again or will ask all my friends not to.

I definitely agree with this statement being a true declaration made. I have been ripped off by fingerhut for a total of, $542.95, for merchandis I never recieved.

when I complained about the bill , one customer service rep. told me to go check out my neighbors, that they probably picked it up at my doorstep. I complained three times , getting the same kind of response from each. finally, I was promised a form that I would have to fill out and return to get my account straightened out.

after a month and three more trys I finally got the form, always with an appology. less than the 30 day wait period and I get a letter from fingerhut corp stating I am at fault and will have to pay for the merchandise that I never recieved. It was supposedly shiped by speedy delivery to my house. there is always someone at the house, but never was a package dropped off.

I was told to fill out a police report and send a copy and another decision would be made. I believe this to be a scam just waiting to be busted. Yes, Fingerhut should be put out of bussiness for these kind of scams. Any other company would be glad to try and help recover the lost merchandise, if it was really lost.

Could it be that some top fingerhut employee is enjoying these items at my expense ?

Let me have some feedback on this one people. I won't rest till I see fingerhut explain this one in court, because I will never pay one cent of my hard earned money on this bill of $542.95 as long as it takes before it ends up on a circuit court Judges bench as a case to be decided.

Collection calls for a balance I don't owe

I have received many calls from them regarding an open account. They claim I owe them $500. I gave them the last 4 digits of my SSN which didn't match and my address which also didn't match. Apparently, I have the same name as someone who skipped on them. I am sending them a certified letter copying our state dept of consumer affairs instructing them not to call me any more. If that doesn't work, I'll find an attorney who will sue them for harassment. Maybe that will work. All the collections were from India they don't even use Americans.

Why is so hard to find someone who don't speak "american". Their "enghish stinks" and they can't hear anything you say, so you just howl into the phone. What's with fingerhut?

Finger Hut Will Ruin Your Credit

I received a Fingerhut Catalog dated March 2008 and it stated I was Pre Approved for their credit and all I needed to do was send my information. Upon providing the information I was immediately denied. I contacted Finger Hut and was told my credit score must have dropped from when they checked my credit and in fact it had increased. Now I show a credit check by the company thus decreasing my credit score as a hard check. BEWARE The customer service agents were very curtious but wanted me to send it in writing and I am taking this to The Attorneys Generals Office.

Ordering from Fingerhut is a foolish as buying a cheaply made bicycle from Wal-Mart or Target or KMart.
