Disgusting customer service . Magazine was late , incentive of free gift was not received, no reply to emails sent , false promises made from them on phone calls . Do not buy from this company . Very very poor service .
13 month Puzzler gift subscription @ 43.35 GBP inclusive of delivery to USA
On April 13, 2020, I ordered the captioned item on line with the subscription to begin with the June 2020 issue. My credit car was charged the next day. As of November only the July and August issues had been received. After several cordial email exchanges - extending the subscription expiration date, profuse apologies, etc.- on December 2nd, Thompson agreed to refund less than half of the subscription price to my credit card within 7 working days. Sadly, their efficiency at charging a credit card is not matched by an ability to refund to a credit card. Still no refund. I admit to not knowing what Thompson considers a "working day." My advice: DEAL WITH THIS CROWD AT YOUR PERIL.
I live in the USA and I ordered a small hamper from DC Thomson to be delivered to an address in the UK. Since the recipient is deaf, I'm unable to call him to find out if he received the order. I've tried contacting DC Thomson by email to which I received a robotic response so I called them and was told they would have to contact the company that shipped my order. I've yet to hear back from them. I would never buy from this business again, worst bloody service ever !!
Placed an order and paid and after nearly 3 weeks nothing had arrived, I went to be website to be met with a "Stock take" message saying orders were not being sent out until after that date...but my order was placed 2 full weeks before the stock taking date. I called and eventually got through to be told my order was still at the warehouse and was told to wait, waited another 2 weeks, emailed and was told my order would be with me within the week. No apology! Needless to say it never turned up, opened a case with PayPal and without so much as a word of sorry just got a refund. Terrible experience. I believe they are also responsible for Crafts Beautiful subscriptions, which I have had nothing but hassle with in the past. Do yourself a favour and shop elsewhere
Absolute disaster avoid at all costs. Issues not delivered only 4 issues received in 4 months customer service offered to send replacements which did not arrive. Offered to extend subscription by 2 weeks and give "free~" digital subscription You will be better off purchasing from your local shop
Received 27 little flower plugs. Planted with care and compost. Unfortunately only a few have survived. All other plants doing great so can't understand it. Wouldn't buy using this method again. Better off visiting a garden centre.
order placed 11/11/19 print received some days later no sign of rest of order. e mailed shop no reply to date now 29/11/19 rang to find out where order was ,informed it was not in stock or might be unsure ,aand might have been out of stock when I ordered,informed the old reply were very busy at the moment etc etc ,then management should put on staff to cope with this time of year, sorry no excuse at all ,leaving people on the phone to take the flack from customers because you cannot organise a customer care or order system other than on the cheap. ,informed to email the address I had previously used to complain ,only problem is to date they have not answered previous e mail so not a good system, said she would find out and e mail me ,we will see. Why though was I not phoned as they have my number why did they not answer my e mail or why did they not e mail me regarding what had happened to my order a very poor service no information and shows no customer care whatsoever , I have used DC Thompson before and I will not bother again its not worth it.
Love the magazine. Not good customer service as just give glib answers as they don,t know what to say. Delivery very bad and when you ring and say magazine not arrived just blame the post even though you guarantee to receive before it hits the shops. Mine still not arrived and when I rang and said it would be in the shops now was told I could go to the shop and buy one and would be credited with an extra week. What am I paying a subscription for and what is the guarantee?
Happy with the services but still need improvement
DC Thompson is one of the trusted sites where I can book any magazines. i am taking their services for last three months and i am very happy with whatever they are providing for their customers. But i still feel that they need to improve a little bit and it will be the best forever. what i like about the services that i always get my magazines on time. My previous experience with a magazine was bad as they deliver the magazines on late dates which i really hate. Not with DC Thomson, as they are extremely punctual about their delivery date
