Worst company fails

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Dark_Nit, Jul 3, 2017.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I ordered some clothing from Sports Direct a few days ago.

    Today they sent me an email to pre-order Manchester United kit.

    I am a Liverpool supporter.

    I have unsubscribed from further emailings.

    [Need I say that I already don't like SD and the only reason I ordered the stuff from them was that I could not get it elsewhere, but that email put the cap on it!]

    Any other company epic failures?

    Anybody who orders from this man is just asking for trouble.

  4. I am sure that at least half the infantry will have any amount of company failures, probably quite a few post on here.

    PayPal. I was selling something via eBay and the person who bought it paid via PayPal who promptly stuck my own money 'on hold' as I hadn't used the account for a while.

    Given that I can only withdraw it to an account in my own name, having to wait two weeks for my own money seems excessive.

    Mind you, I've never used Sports Direct as I'm not a pikey.

  9. Sainsbury Home Insurance, despite repeated calls over the last three months I have yet to recive a printed policy document. They have offered to email it, however why should I stump up the cost of printer ink, I know its a minor thing but its irritating, fired off a letter to the MD 2 weeks ago and the whole sorry saga is being reviewed.

    I've not had a Utd shirt since I was a kid at school, pre sponsorship days.

    I wish we could go back to those days.

    You will pay for it in the end, plus admin costs and postage. You just won't see it itemised on your bill.
