Consumer Complaints and Reviews
I recently placed an order with Old Navy, I was very dissatisfied! I only ordered because there was a sale buy one get one free uniforms, first it was outdated. I received the email stating it was a sale. I tried to put the code in and accidentally ordered instead. Immediately I called customer service to tell them to cancel, they had me on hold for at least 10 minutes! My order was still shipped and now I have to either send it back via online or in store! I wanted to just get my money back and also they were false advertising because in the email it stated the sale was still going on but it wasn't! I'm sure I won't be ordering for a while!!!
OMG! Worst experience ever!! $3 polos online and in store, yea right. I went online and placed an order for 5 shirts for my daughter since that was the limit and the web kept overcharging me for the shirts. Finally contacted customer service for assistance and have been on hold for over 32 minutes and they close in 10 minutes. Absolutely ridiculous!! They shouldn't advertise something if their system can't accommodate and definitely should not make customers wait this long to get help, knowing you are just waiting to close so you don't have to answer the call!! I will not be ordering from them EVER again!!!
On 7-8-17 cashier ** overcharged me for a pair of earrings. Didn't realized until I checked my receipt in parking lot. I waited in line for a good 15 mins. The first time. When I came back in I approached the cashier in lane 10 closest to the exit and try to explain I just left the store 1 minute early and realized I was overcharge. She made me go all the way back to end of line because she had just call the next person who hadn't entered her lane yet. I try explain myself I had just been overcharged
And I just checked out. Some man the next to check out yell out loud to this cashier she was not on line. Again I try to explain, "Do you have a customer service dept?" She stated, "No. You need to go back to the end of the line". Which meant me waiting 15 more mins. I am beyond pissed. You don't treat people this way. This was not fault and to be yelled at by a customer and snubbed by the cashier instead of calling for a manager to help me. I will be sharing my horrible experience.
My experience ordering online with Old Navy was awful. The order showed as shipped but each day I tracked it, it wasn't showing when it would be delivered but said guaranteed to be delivered by today. Something told me to call and check. Customer service said the item was never picked up by UPS. No phone call, no email, no phone call to tell me this so I could find the item elsewhere. I find this out on my own the day before I actually need the item. Meanwhile I ordered the item over 8 days ago. With that I asked which store I could find the item in to go buy it and was given three locations. Was told that all 3 locations were showing "in the green" meaning they have many of that item. WRONG!!!! Not one store has this item. Complete waste of my time and gas! And inconsiderate of them to make people run around when online shopping is supposed to make your life easier.
I returned part of an online purchase I made 3 weeks ago with the prepaid shipping label provided. Even though my items were received by Old Navy 2 weeks ago (confirmed by tracking #) they told me it could take up to 5 weeks to receive confirmation of a refund! Terrible service. I contacted the customer service department who has no record of my return and told me to check back July 2 if I haven't heard anything.

I bought a pair of jeans a week ago. Wore them once and they were too big for me. So at the end of the week when I had a day off I went to get a size exchange. I was told that it's worn and so cannot exchange. That is the most ridiculous thing I have heard. They are basically telling me that once you buy something if it doesn't fit it's your loss!!! Not happy at all and will never ever go back to Old Navy to shop. The most obscure place ever!
I ordered some clothes on 9 May for my husband birthday and I got a confirmation mail that I am going to receive my order on 22nd May. But my order shipment is still pending. When I called to customer care they asked me to cancel my order. Their customer service is very pathetic. And even also I don't know when I am going to receive my order. I am stressed. They ruined my husband's birthday. Very disappointed with their service. Will not going to order anything from Old Navy.
I signed up for an account with gap.com, oldnavy.com, etc. (they all use the same account) and placed an order with Old Navy online. I didn't receive an email confirmation for my order and when I called customer service to find out why, they had a different email address for me (it was similar, but not the same). The website had automatically changed my email address! Needless to say I cancelled my order and I'm hoping that goes smoothly! Make sure if you place an order that the website didn't change your email address or change any other information on your account.
Making a payment on the due day online or over the phone is a pain in the neck. Asking you all your personal information, just to make a payment. I started the process and when they were asking me about my mother's information I said that is enough and I couldn't do the payment so I will get charged for late payment. I wonder if the next question would be what color was my underwear. I'm very disappointed of the customer service they have and the way they handle a customer's payment online and over the phone.
I haven't shopped Old Navy for 15 years because their clothes are horrible quality. Everything I bought either shrunk or got holes after 1 wash, and their clothes aren't low cost. My daughter has started to buy clothes there. I spent 200.00 on spring clothes there. 42.00 jeans got a huge rip after 1 wash. Old Navy won't exchange them if they have been washed. They will never get another dime from me. Don't waste your money on their clothes.
I have a very expensive bicycle - my only means of transportation. Only be has no place to lock up bikes. I asked if I could have my bike inside the store of wait up when nobody would be able to it would not be this way. They said no without any exceptions. They were very rude to me about this so they lost a lot of my business. This is the worst store ever.
Everything I purchase from Old Navy that's made of t-shirt material RUNS! I just put on a t-shirt I've only worn a couple of times and it now has runs in it along the bottom front. This is one of many that I've had this happen to. This happens to them even before they're washed! Don't know why I continued to purchase from them! Very upset!
DON'T USE SUPER CASH. When I purchased 180.00 worth of items, the limit on Super Cash (I'm not sure exact, but let's say 50.00). So they spread out the Super Cash they called prorating, which took off the amount on each item. So, even though I could have had the same discount on 50.00, they now will only take items back for the sale price. THIS IS ILLEGAL. The Senior Customer Service advisor said no one else we could speak with and that that's how it works. So, basically then they took my receipt and now I'm home with no receipt from the Birch RUN outlets. Basically you need to know if you give any money to OLD NAVY you are screwed.
I will never shop at their stores anywhere again. I was within return time and it did not matter. The rules change daily and when I called another store, she said, "Yes we do that all the time because you would have gotten the discount on fewer items." The store said you can only use once and that is the way they are stealing from consumers. WHO IS OVERSEEING CONSUMERS' PROTECTION? Just about no one. We are paying for government agencies to do everything but protect us.
I bought three pairs of men's jeans last year that fit fine. Within a year the zipper had snapped on all three. Once the piece comes loose it is impossible to fix, so I essentially had to throw away barely worn jeans. I have never had the same thing happen with another brand. These are not a good product, and you should not purchase them.
My mother purchased some school pants for my son online. She ordered the wrong size. So when they arrived I took them back to Old Navy to exchange them for the correct size. I was told they do not exchange online orders. The pants would be returned back onto the card which will take 3 business days then you can purchase the correct size. All of that to just exchange for a different size. That's horrible. So basically make sure whatever you purchase online is what you actually want and correct in size. Because if not you will go through a process just to exchange a item.
FYI... Do not shop at Old Navy. I had a store credit card with them, which I have used off and on for the last 2 years. Buy some things, pay off balance. Notice I said HAD!!! Received a letter today that my account was closed. Letter said they did a review of my credit and the decision was made to cancel account. My credit is better now than when I opened the account. So if you are a good customer, use your card, pay your bill on time and always pay more than the minimum, your reward is cancel your account. How about reviewing my payment history with Old Navy? Never late, pay more than the minimum and pay way before due date. Called customer service, surprise, surprise don't talk to anyone in the US!!! Their answer to why my account was canceled? You will receive a letter!!! OLD NAVY sucks for customer service and business practices!!! Will NEVER shop at Old Navy again!!!
Bought a jacket as a gift for my daughter. She needed a larger size which several stores no longer had. She was offered a refund, but the refund was much less than what I paid for it. Called the store, called "customer relations" dept., even headquarters--which by the way, will give you a phone number that will circle you back to the initial "customer relations" dept. My daughter returned the jacket w/o a receipt but soon found the receipt to prove the cost paid. The receipt become invalid because she didn't have it at time of return. All we wanted was exactly what we paid for the item! They didn't even offer a gift card for the difference. So "goodbye" Old Navy! You have just lost another family.
The last shopping experience at Old Navy was its last chance and I won't be going back nor will my family and our business will no longer promote it. Its sales aren't sales at all unless it's on a clearance rack. They advertise one thing and once at the counter they charge you a higher price and then give a convoluted explanation of how they have to ring it up so it's in the customer's best interest if they have to return the items. Even after doing the math with them they couldn't provide an answer that made mathematical sense. After repeating what the sale was supposed to be staff stated that it did seem confusing to consumers but it's just the way the sales work. Somehow this happens every time we shop here.
I purchased 2 coats for my 10 y/o son from Old Navy. They looked good and they were on sale. Now, I did have issues with a coat I purchased for him two years but I thought, "maybe this one will work." Delivered on time, we loved the looks of both coats. The lighter one had a plastic zipper, which works great. The one for the winter is just horrible! The zipper is basically too thick for the coat. I felt so bad for my son two days ago when he carried his coat out of the class room. We had to literally have him out. My husband put some Vaseline on the zipper hoping it would glide up and down. Our son wore it the next day and it seemed okay when he walked out the door. Same thing happened when I picked him up today. Ugh! If the class would've gone outside, my son would have to stay inside! Not cool Old Navy; not cool. No more--I'm done!
I placed an order that was stolen due to the fact I got the shipping information the day of delivery. I was not too upset because it was a steal so I called to see what they could if anything. The girl told me she would reship me out a new one that would be there the middle of this week. When I checked my email there was the return for the original order then a new order number for the reship but the status said CANCELLED. So I called and was on hold for 30 minutes. I hung up and said I will try again in the morning. I emailed as well.
I finally spoke to someone on the phone after another long holding period and she said my order was cancelled because stores fill the reships and they can't do expedited shipping thru the holidays. "Ok fine. So I should be expecting a refund correct?" she said "yes." I get an email the next day from another customer service rep that says my order was reshipped and I should expect it within 5 to 7 business days. Now I am confused so I emailed back and the rep told me 2 days later that no my order is cancelled and I should receive my refund within 3 to 5 business days from the cancellation. THE ORDER HAS BEEN CANCELLED NOW FOR A WEEK AND A HALF! I am so irate at all the miscommunication and misinformation! NEVER AGAIN WILL I SHOP OR ORDER FROM OLD NAVY!
I placed a Christmas order with Old Navy on December 8th 2016. On Dec. 20th I received a partial order. The next day I called to find out where the rest of my order was, after 2 calls in and 1 hour on hold the very nice customer service rep told me that my order was going to be sent overnight and would be here Friday December 23rd. Ok so I didn't complain, it's going to get here before Christmas, I thought. At 6:18 today Dec. 22nd I received an email telling the products were no longer available!!! All this time??? They kindly offered me a 10% discount on my next purchase, you've got to be kidding me. I will never shop there again.
I placed an order for 3 pairs of leggings on December 10th. Not a huge order, not a holiday order, just pants I need for my daughter that they refuse to carry in stores because they hate Petite sizes and charge you MORE for a size with less fabric than for a normal non-petite size. These idiots took 10 DAYS to put three pairs of pants in a box to mail out. 10 DAYS. I order and received over a dozen packages from Amazon in a 4 day period and these people can't get a box out of their warehouse in less than 10 days? But nope, here I am, 12 days out from my order and I'll still be waiting another 2 days for my kid to have pants. Ludicrous, and you can bet I'll NEVER order from them again...
I placed an order on Dec. 11th. It is now Dec. 20th and my order status is still in Pending Shipment status. I emailed 2 times, no response. Tried to call 3 times, but I am on hold forever! I am just wanting to cancel this order and can't even get through to anyone to do this. My next step is to go to the store and have them handle it.
I bought several items in November for Christmas gifts at Old Navy Onalaska, WI. The clerk asked if I would like to open a credit card for extra savings. I replied that I did not do that, I always use my visa for everything then I don't have to worry about paying other things off. She suggested I would get more savings and I could go home and pay the card off. So I thought OK. So I did just that. Later, when I needed to return some of the items they would not give me cash but would only put it on the card that I already paid off. So I would only be getting store credit. I was sick about it and the clerk had never mentioned that would happen if I returned any of my gifts.
I also received other merchandise from OLD NAVY online and they were all wrong sizes. Now I am stuck with about $150 in merchandise that I will get back in store credit only. AND customer service rep Marisha #** was very cavalier about saying that the company COULD put all the returns on my visa because the online order was on that, but they choose not to, because they sell tender for tender. Even though the clerk never explained that to me. So the items I purchased in store will not go on my Visa. Never shopping at Old Navy again, and I have 5 boys, so I have always gone there for everything. Wish I had never signed up for that stupid card just to get about 10% off. Really upset.
I placed an order on 12/8/16 & received an email stating my order will be at my door 8-11 days. It's now 12/19/16 & the order is "still pending shipping". I called customer service two different times checking on the order & got two different lies. I sent two emails to customer service & NOTHING... My 2nd call got me a promise to deliver by 12/23 and a $8.40 discount which is not even close to the recent drops in prices for the items in my order. Calling customer service was 35 minutes for the 1st call & 15 minutes for the 2nd. This has been a horrible nightmare as these are items for my college granddaughter for Christmas. Needless to say, I'll not be shopping at Old Navy online ever.
Nor will I shop in the stores as the reason I shopped online is because the store Academy in Colorado Springs would not help me when I showed them the online prices which were lower than the store prices & simply blew me off by saying the retail stores have different prices than online. Well idiot you just sent me to online with a hope you close your store with such bad attitudes, but now the online experience is worse than the horribly frustrating in-store experience. I think Old Navy should be Old News & stop making promises it doesn't keep & for heaven's sake provide pricing for current products awaiting to be fulfilled for whatever century they'll be shipped.
I wanted to forward my emails to headquarters but there's not email publicized which shows they have way more complaints than they want to deal with or they just don't give a damn (bingo!). It's noticeable that the quality of their products has taken a dive over the years even with the prices but I always buy during sales so I don't feel so bad if there's only a one year use. So frustrating Old Navy. Get your act together.
I have been a valued customer with Old Navy and shop there constantly. I have never had a problem with them until now. I ordered my items two weeks ago. This is about three weeks before Christmas and they guaranteed the purchased items were available and ship to me 8-10 business days. This is perfect! I get an email today saying that they cannot locate several items and that they will reimburse me the funds. Well it six days before Christmas and now if I do online shopping I will have to expedited shipping and have it cost more to send or I have to go to the stores and hopefully find something that is close to the items ordered. This is absolutely ridiculous. Who waits to tell you a week before? They think it would be great to give me a 10% off coupon that expires in six months. That is a slap in the face! The way they handle this situation was not thinking about their customer. They do not care.
I have ordered online several times. I ordered some items on December 8th because I needed to have appropriate work attire for a new job, so being used to quick shipping and online sales I decided this would be the perfect option. On December 13th I became concerned and called Customer Service - held for 33 minutes. The rep did not explain the long delay and tried to make me feel like canceling the order would be so difficult. On December 15th I still did not have any shipping notification or response to my request so I called again. Held for a lovely 46 minutes this time!
The rep explained that the order takes 24-48 hours to cancel. I reminded her it was 48 hours when I called. I asked for a supervisor, who supposedly was "too busy" to come to the line and speak to me. I was told to check my email in 30 minutes. Sure enough the items were canceled one-by-one for a total of 6 emails. The messages say that if I paid with my credit card I have not been charged. NOT!!! My credit card has been charged, so I guess now I have to call and ask how long it will take for the charges to be reversed. Has oldnavy.com Customer Service & shipping fallen apart? I will be using this experience to spend my clothing dollars more wisely. I'd rather purchase higher quality and own less pieces. Goodbye oldnavy.com! Thanks oldnavy.com!
I placed an order on Nov 29, 2016. It's now Dec 12 and when I log on to check the order. It says "pending shipment". I emailed on Dec 9 and called and I'm on hold now (12 Min and counting) and I also emailed today as well. Nothing. Can't get a human. It's a forever hold. At this point I just want a refund.
I have long been shopping at Old Navy and even opened an Old Navy credit card. I do have an issue with their shipping policies, though. I have several times placed orders and never received a shipping notification. I recently placed two Orders, one on November 25th, and one on December 4th. I haven't received a shipping notice for either order, but my concern was the order placed on the 25th. When I called the customer service line, after 20 minutes of being on hold the associate told me it would be here by the middle of next week. I asked if that was normal, because it has been more than 10 business days since I placed my order and I selected 5-7 day shipping.
She told me I did not pay for shipping (which is free with a larger purchase so why bring that up?) and at the time of purchasing there was an extended delivery estimate in the shipping window. I did expect delays for Black Friday, but my concern was a lack of a tracking number. She assured me it would be here by next week and didn't tell me when to expect a tracking number. Today I filled up a cart and took a look at the shipping option window, I often choose free shipping because I'm already spending at minimum $50. It reads "5-7 business days, arrives by 12/23". (See image.) Today is the 7th of December, seven business days from now is the 16th of December. I understand processing time, and think that the excess of a few days is acceptable considering holidays.
I find the 'fine print' strategy used when choosing shipping options to be shady, as it appears to contradict itself with no explanation. Other retailers add in a blurb about processing time, or holidays. Old Navy does not. I am away at work most days and shop online frequently, tracking numbers are immensely useful to me because I know to let someone at home know to expect mail or packages. Without a tracking number I have no way of knowing when the package will arrive, only the 'promise' that it will arrive by the middle of next week.
I ordered some boy's jeans online and had them shipped to me. When I received them they looked like they'd already been worn and were falling apart. The hem had holes in them and around the pockets it was frayed. I was disappointed and feel like I should've been shipped the jeans that had a newer of a quality to them. Not ones that looked like they'd already been worn and were coming apart.
