  • Terrible Customer Service

    I placed an order on line on January 4, 2017. All four of the items I ordered were in stock and I received confirmation of such. On January 10, 2017, I only received 3 out of the 4 items and so I went online to see where the 4th item was. Initially, it said it was “Processing” but I later found out by going online that the balance of my order was “Cancelled” by someone at Dick’s. When I looked online again for the item, I could see that the particular size and color that I originally ordered was now “out of stock”. What was curious is that I never... More...

  • Online Ordering Experience Unsatisfactory

    Received an online email blast offering $20 off a $100 purchase. Local store out of stock on size needed so decided to order online. Keen Mens Sandals were 79.99 in State College store. 99.99 on website. But with $20 off same price...Online sales person said sandals were not eligible for $20 coupon since they were under $100 but I could add on to the order to bring it up to $100. Unacceptable one cent away from $100 - asked for supervisor. After waiting on hold....authorized the coupon. Upon check out, I used a Dicks Gift Card and a Visa Card. I was then told the $20 discount would... More...

  • Dicks in mays landing NJ.

    I went there several times to look at rifles.....I had my firearm card each time. After several weeks of research I decided on the one I wanted. I go there to purchase ....after several minutes the manager frank tells me he can't sell me rifle. I am baffled...... He tells me it's because my middle initial is not on my firearms card....are you kidding me?? It's from a police station...it has all my identifying information.....my finger print.......all nj licenses have the middle initial ...that's not my fault.....it was so messed up.....I told him I've wasted time...

    I received an email from Dicks sporting goods about their sale. On Dec 21st I ordered Air Lebron Black Red slider (flip flops). Received and order number and invoice stating my order is in process. I kept checking my emails to see when the order would ship, it kept saying order in process, So I called and they said order is in process. Today Dec 29th I received and email saying my order was cancelled. I picked up the phone and called Dicks. The CS rep said the pricing on the sliders was incorrect so they could not ship the order. It took them nine days to figure that out! She put me on... More...

  • Cancelled order difficulties

    My wife and I were looking at treadmills for 2014 Christmas for ourselves. We went into our local Dick's store to look at the treadmills and test the feel. The first time in the store, we tried to find someone to help us and had difficulty. We were told the person over this department would be with us shortly. After 10 minutes, we went over to another person to check on what was going on, he rudely said, I will be with you in a minute. We got angry at the nasty way he responded so we left. We decided to give Dick's another chance as we had pretty much decided on the... More...

    Dicks had a help wanted add for operations associate on their web site full time which was a big lie, a mere 20/30 hrs a week in the bangor maine store. It was completely miss leading offered vacation,dental,401k ect. what a joke another big box store avoiding paying people what they are worth.

  • Dick's Sporting Goods

    Just read thru other dissatisfied Dick's customers that were also looking for the link to receive the $10 coupon after taking the survey. I got onto your site with the email address listed on the bottom of my receipt & clicked onto the site where I'm to take the survey. The instructions are to click on the Dick's link below---I clicked on all words listed & nothing came up to take a survey. I'm confused as to why this site doesn't work & many others are too. Please resolve this. I will speak to the manager at the Dick's store in Pittsburgh! More...

  • Example: Racist and Rude

    Today I visited Dicks in Oswego Il and they demonstrated the worst customer service ever. It began by the employee pointing us to a product not wanting to direct us to it. Secondly, they had pricing in the wrong spot and I had to debate with Haley about it until I.requested a manager. Also, to add insult to injury an employee was following us around the store. The same employee that wanted to point to the products. MAYBE TO MANY KIDS WORKING THERE ITS MORE OF A PLAYGROUND NOT A BUSINESS. More...

  • Poor customer service at Dick's

    I went in store yesterday to purchase a trampoline. The night before I went online and they had one on sale for a great price but there was no sale date on it so first thing in the morning I drove 30 miles to the store...to discover it was no longer on sale. I asked if they would honor price from merely 10 hours ago and the guy said no. He didn't try to help me at all. I asked if he could ask store manager. He said he wouldn't be in til later that day and said..."I could call my manager but I'm not going to". I'm sorry I was a manager for 8 years this is not... More...

  • Poor Customer Service

    My fiance and I walked into Dicks sporting goods located in the Brandon mall, Fl. We asked for assistance to look at guns and waited for someone to come and assist us. One person came out and said he would be right back. We waited for another 20 minutes for him to return. He never came back. My Fiance went again to ask for help and waited another 10 minutes. We finally walked out without getting any attention. If you are a minority don't shop in this store.. they provide no customer service. More...

  • Unwilling to honor their own guarantee

    Will not do business with Dick's again! They ruined my Christmas with my son. I placed my online order on 12/17 and they guaranteed Christmas delivery if ordered by the 18th. I got my shipped email a couple of days later and immediately tracked it. It showed delivery for the 26th! I immediately called and asked for a replacement order with expedited shipping and a return label for the 1st order. The customer service rep refused and was clod and uncaring about the situation. He said if it doesn't "happen" to show up before than to call back and my order would be free. Of... More...

  • Intentionally Damaged Apparel

    If you buy expensive rainwear at Dicks, you can be sure to find a hole intentionally poked through it - near the center of your shoulder blades. THIS IS ACTUALLY CORPORATE STORE POLICY!! Dicks has a policy of pinning thei security tags in the middle of the back - of VERY EXPENSIVE Gore Tex Outerware. Other stores (with a clue) put these same tags at the end of a sleeve, etc where they don't poke a hole in a rainsuit!!! I've brought this up to several store managers who understand / agree but are not allowed to circumvent corporate security policy. I know that two store... More...

  • Stolen Money

    Seriously, don't ever order from %u202ADicks Sporting Good%u202C ! I originally placed an order for a pair of running shoes on November 19th. OVER A MONTH AGO. The same day they took my money out of my account. After FIVE phone calls and numerous mess ups on their end, they have yet to send me the shoes or even refund me my money. Their customer service staff tells nothing, but lies. All you'll hear is "3 to 5 business days." Never order from them unless you like your money stolen. I feel I should consult a lawyer at this point! More...

  • Never received my exchange item

    I ordered a great hoodie on Black Friday and received it 4 days later with a security tag attached. I called DSG right away and was told I could bring it into the store or send it back and receive a new item. As I live over 2 hours from the nearest store, I chose to send the item in. After 15 days of waiting and 3 contacts with customer service assuring me that my shirt was about to be shipped but that the warehouse was backed up, I received an email with a refund. After two more contacts with customer service, I am told that the item is completely out of stock and there is nothing they... More...

  • Dick's employers completely incompetent!

    About three weeks ago we bough a treadmill in the store in Saugus, MA. Because that particular treadmill was not in the store, we were told we will get a phone call, once they are in the store to schedule a delivery. Three weeks later, still no treadmill nor a phone call. My husband called only to find out that our purchase was not even in their system! We had been promised to get our treadmill before Christmas, if be buy if by December 12th. We bought it before Thanksgiving in November, and still no sigh of the treadmill in my house (today is 12/18). Just want to say how incompetent the... More...

  • Employees are uninformed on gun purchase laws

    I went in to purchase a shotgun for my grandson. I filled out the forms and after waiting for 30 minutes the employee returned and said that it had to be submitted for further review. He said it could take 6 to 30 days until they got a response and insisted that was the law. I told him the law said "after 3 days if there is no negative response the gun can be sold". He told me that was incorrect. I ask if maybe it was a store policy and he said no it was the law. When I got home I looked it up to be sure I was correct. I was and called him to ask him to look up the law and... More...

  • Dick's Sporting Goods. Rude loud cashier

    Jessica is an extremely rude, loud and obnoxious cashier. There was a problem with the coupon-(known problem. According to her this happens all the time) was told there was nothing she could do. Ask to see a manager. She then calls manager and tells manager there is an irate customer up front. I was not irate just frustrated with the rudeness and unprofessionalism of Jessica. She would not allow me to speak at all and kept talking over me. The manager was clueless about the coupon. After he read the coupon he said I was correct and the coupon was correct but he couldn't fix it.... More...

    Purchased a Kayak Cart at Dicks in SAN DIEGO at SPORTS ARENA SQUARE 3265 SPORTS ARENA BLVD. SAN DIEGO, CA 92110 Used it once and found it be a piece of junk. Took it back to Dick's in 30 days and was told I could not return it because it was not new. They say they have a 90 day satisfaction return policy. How can you be satisfied if you haven't had a chance to use it? Manager could care less. More...

  • Dick's does not stand behind its merchandise

    Bought a $120 aluminum baseball bat for my 9-year-old son at Dick's last year. Bat broke last week. Should have lasted longer, but I didn't make a big deal about it. Bought a $65 replacement on June 20. He played a game on June 22, and the bat was dented after three ABs. Brought it back to the store on June 24 and they told me they could do nothing for me. I had to ship it back to the manufacturer. Meanwhile my son has games on June 25 and 26. I explained to the store manager this meant I would have to buy another bat. He apologized. That's it. Didn't offer a discount,... More...

  • Dicks Sporting Good participates in deceptive in-store advertising.

    I went into Dicks to purchase a new backpack for my son who is going into high school this year. The advertisement at the store read "RECEIVE A $10.00 CASH BONUS WITH YOU BACKPACK PURCHASE OF $59.99 OR MORE". My son picked out his backpack, which was $75.00 and I inquired as to the $10,00 Cash Bonus. I was told that it was not a Cash Bonus but rather a $10.00 coupon off my next purchase which would be valid a week after my purchase. I asked the Manager on duty who reiterated the same information. I inquired if they realized that the sign was deceptive to the public and was... More...

  • Dicks Bike department

    I bought a bike accessories for >400$ about 2 weeks ago. Before I could take it to checkout, they performed a 15 minute inspection of it. In spite of this, after I rode it out of the shop, I noticed that the front wheel disc brake was hitting against something, so that I got a noise with every turn of the wheel. It was an expensive bike, and I didn't want to damage it, so I did not ride for about a week until I could take it back to the shop. The guy there was helpful, and he tightened the spokes and adjusted the brake and the noise went away. I rode it back home only to find that... More...

  • 6th Man Delivery

    After buying an expensive treadmill from Dicks Sporting Goods Store we thought that an 60.00 for delivery and set up was a great deal. It has turned into a HORRIFIC nightmare. What you are actually paying for is sitting around for TWO Saturdays in a row, waiting on a scheduled delivery that is inevitably late by several hours. Trying to call the 6th Man delivery customer service starts out pleasant enough, then you get to hear the caustic remarks of the Customer service representative when she things you have hung up. Never again and in addition to that TWO of my friends who were... More...

The associate name was Kathy Gonzales. She was rude to me and my children in the store. I have a court-ordered restraining order against her but did not know she worked there.

  • worst shipping service ever and some other issues

    It all started with our original online order getting cancelled so we called in and ordered it again (after we were reassured that the original order was in fact cancelled). 2 weeks later we got the first item delivered - twice! Turns out, somehow the cancelled order got reinstated, and nobody could explain it. Even though the 2nd item in the order had not yet been shipped, Dicks was NOT able to withhold that item but it had to be delivered just for me to turn around and ship it back. A waste of my time and their money.... Lastly, the shipping service Dicks Sporting goods used is... More...

    On July 1, 2010 I purchased two (2) pop-up canopies. I purchased the “No Sweat Protection” replacement plan for both of them. In November 2010, a leg bent on one canopy and in March 2011, a leg bent on the second canopy. When I inquired about what to do to receive a product replacement card for the full purchase price, I was told that I would receive two shipping labels and if the item was too big to ship, all I had to do was type up a letter stating that the two canopies were too large to ship … of which I did.

    After sending out several emails because I could not get a hold of anyone and contacting the better business bureau, the district manager for the San Diego area, John Thrasher, called me. He was very apologetic for the total lack of customer service received and for the inconvenience. He offered me a $50 gift card without me asking, and asked it that would make things right. I happily accepted. He also said that someone from corporate would be contacting me who also got one of my emails, and that they may also do something to remedy the situation.

    I must say that as a long time Dicks customer I feel you and the board need to be aware of your manager’s confrontational demeanor and disregard for customer retention.

    If you can, avoid using my 6th man delivery by Dicks Sporting goods, it is a joke! First, they take forever to schedule the delivery becuase they will only be in your area once every 2 weeks. Then, when there is a defective/missing part, they will send you the wrong part twice or not understand what the piece you need is even though it is their product! I have been waiting 3 weeks for a piece to a gym that I bought, and they seriously still dont understand what I need. Not to mention, once they actually send it to me, if that happens, I will need to wait two more weeks for the rude... More...
