I place an order on Nov 13 for 3 items. Two items, which I love, arrived via UPS. But the third item did not. The carrier for that was USPS. Checking that tracking # showed only "tracking number created on Nov 15". I texted Customer Service on 11/23 and they responded --"Tracking # says package is on its way to a USPS facility"... If you still have not received the item until 11/25 please let us know right away so we can do further investigation." --
USPS tracking info stayed the same (zilch). I texted AT again on 11/26 and they responded "We are experiencing delays - kindly allow an additional 3 business days for your package." I texted again on 12/2 and they responded "I would be glad to share this concern to our appropriate team for more research. We'll email you back ASAP." No email arrived.
I finally called late in the day on 12/2 and demanded a refund and said it was crazy they did not have any quick info on the package's whereabouts. And that I felt I was being given a run-around and that AT was not being honest with me. The operator was very polite and first said the package was on its way but when I pressed he checked with his supervisor and they finally agreed to refund. As said below, For some reason, Ann Taylor (1) mis-leads its customers; (2) cannot seem to get packages shipped and delivered within a reasonable period; and (3) cannot seem to answer questions about package whereabouts and delivery projections. Again, I do love the two items that arrived.
I used to shopping always in Ann Taylor, since the clothes are exactly of my style and reasonable prices on special events and sales. Today I was so disappointed while shopping online. One can't believe but I spent 2-3 hours to process the payment. Kept always displaying "sorry, we're unable to process your transaction , please verify that all information are correct". I checked and verified 100 times still no result. Unfortunately neither the online chat customer representative nor customer service who accepts the calls were available to help me. I even created another account still didn't work. I checked my credit card on another online customer service of other stores to see if it worked, yes it did in a second. But this stupid Ann Taylor online service system doesn't work properly and very frustrating. I'm very disappointed.

I purchased some clothes online in July. One of the dresses was not a great fit and I didn't realize it for a few weeks since I had purchased it for a future event. By the time I could get to the store to return it, it had been 5 weeks since my purchase. I had my receipt. Ann Taylor did NOT refund my full amount paid even though I had a receipt. I understand receiving credit after 30 days, but not the full amount?? Even though I had a receipt? I received about 60% of what I paid as credit. I consider this stealing and is unacceptable in my experience. I will not shop at Ann Taylor again.
Placed an order November 26th and have yet to receive the order. It shows that USPS has the package in NJ and it has been there since early December. I think anyone using USPS for shipping should expect to have delivery issues. I have tried several times to reach out to Ann Taylor via email and the only response I have received was a credit to use toward future shipping costs. Thankfully AMEX has reversed this charge. Finally, I have noticed quality issues in recent orders. Shirts seemingly made with very cheap materials that are fraying after minimal use. Their pants are of better quality as is their sweaters. Overall, not what I expected from this retailer who I used to love.
Have shopped for my wife at Ann Taylor stores for many years - always found wide selection of nice, well made items (if a bit overpriced). This year, for obvious reasons, decided to order online. One order placed late-November; to arrive 12/7; on 12/16 there is no package & no tracking information. Another item was ordered 12/5; again, no information was available on 12/16. Contacted the company today - their response: "we are experiencing delays." Retailers are, generally speaking, all facing the same challenges, yet most are managing quite well. For some reason, Ann Taylor (1) mis-leads its customers; (2) cannot seem to get packages shipped and delivered within a reasonable period; and (3) cannot seem to answer questions about package whereabouts and delivery projections.
Ann Taylor you have lost my package, you have lied to me saying it's delayed but you don't where is it. You keep telling me to check the tracking on USPS which on 12/1 says they are waiting for the package and no further information. Your own website says it should have been delivered 12/9. On 12/10, your CS dept said 12/10. Today your CS department says wait til 12/15 for an order that was placed 11/26. An order you have no idea where it is by your own admission. And now you refuse to issue a refund for a lost package. I expected better from AT.
I ordered clothing for a specific event that took place December 6th on November 21st from Ann Taylor. Though free shipping would have gotten the package here, I chose the second shipping option for faster service. The items all shipped on November 24th. The tracking has stated the entire package is in Atlanta awaiting item at the shipping partner Pitney Bowes. I have had three phone calls with AT. Their only option for me is to reorder the same item, pay again for them; and return the other order, if I ever get it. They state they have changed shipping partners to Pitney Bowes and that is causing delays. They have said they would respond to me twice by phone and one via email and once via text, but the shipping has not budged. Last night a new person told me that all orders now have an arrival date of December 14th.
I live in metro Atlanta. How can any package be sitting at any parcel service for that long? And while it may be Pitney Bowes responsibility now, AT has a responsibility to their customers for their customer service, keeping deadlines reasonably, and offering solutions that don’t involve customers ordering the same thing again (to be shipped again through the same company). 3 of the 7 items I ordered are now out of stock. They offered me a $15 gift certificate. I will not ever order from them again.
Ann Taylor had a Cyber Monday sale and I made purchases to all of the sudden to cancel my orders stating they were sold out when they was not due to poor hindsight on their behalf. I called customer service and they claimed they sent out new codes but I’ve never received it and they did not want to reciprocate me of my lost orders, just only one order. When I go back to order online for a coat, only the regular size was eligible for codes but not the petite but it’s not like that for other products. I called again and they did not help or looked into it; they just told me that was the full price. This is a shady brand and you have to be on your toes.
I ordered an item and received an email that they canceled my item due to the item being unavailable. I checked the website and the item was still there, so I contacted customer service, and was told it was a glitch, and I could reorder the item for over 3 times more than my original purchase. Seems a bit shady. I asked to speak to a manager and was refused by Tianna. Very rude and disrespectful.
My order was canceled after cyber Monday stating the reason that the item was no longer available. When I checked item was available online and in-store.
I called customer care who said there was a IT glitch due to which combined coupons were allowed to be used on my order. I wasted my hour for ordering and then another hour after customer care as it was a gift. I was better off to shop at other brands during the competitive weekend of black Friday and cyber Monday but lost the opportunity to shop elsewhere and find a better deal due to such practices used at Ann Taylor. Big brand like Ann Taylor should own up the mistake and have clear reason stating why the order was canceled, or else honor the order rather than blaming customers to use wrong coupons.
