Taking the proverbial

Applying for a Sainsbury's loan is very misleading and annoying especially as a Nectar card holder! You give and show a 4.8% APR as a Nectar card holder, and on completing the application it turns out this increases to 6.9%. WHY? This is scamming people once again into thinking you are getting a fair deal - not so!! Sainsbury's should make this very clear in the first instance, even if the applicant has an excellent credit rating already. Instead of wasting peoples time and totally insulting their intelligence. My loyalties will no longer be enhancing the £Millions profit Sainsbury's make year on year. Reviewed on: 6th March 2023

The worst service and lie about the settlement

I had an ok experience until my settlement. I asked for a settlement 11 months into my 18 month car loan as I could afford to pay it off. After waiting on hold for an hour the agent disconnected as soon a I got through. After another 2 attempts and a combined hold time of around 3 hours I finally got through to somebody. They gave me a settlement figure of £5,273,17 for a loan that had £6,080 left - seems fair. I then had the instructions sent to my account and transferred the sum to my account. The wording was “all you have to do is transfer £5,273,17 to X account and the account will be closed, this includes your next direct debit payment. 2 days later, with my account still open, I messaged them and got a response 4 days later that said “the settlement agreement generated was incorrect and you still need to pay your next direct debit payment of £890. I was furious. I called an agent who said this was correct but could not give me a reason why. I then spoke to a team leader who said this information was wrong, the settlement was correct and bluntly stated that I will not have to pay my direct debit as it was a technological fault and the system hadn’t caught up. She then said she was going to raise a formal complaint and pass me through to customer service to get more assistance. I was then transferred through to Ben, who had no idea id spoke to another agent. I repeated what the team leader has said and Ben then stated she was wrong, the settlement was incorrect and I still need to pay the direct debit. HOW CAN 5 DIFFERENT PEOPLE ALL BE ON A DIFFERENT PAGE!? Ben then said they are doing an internal review that takes 3 days but it could take up to 8 weeks (my direct debit is due in 11 days). He said if they can’t resolve it then I can go to the Financial Ombudsman Service after the 8-week period. The customer service is horrendous and clearly the staff are not being trained well. It’s a disgrace and they’re exploring customers for mild gains. Reviewed on: 30th August 2022
