“PAYING TOO MUCH”

published 25/11/2003

Discounts, specials

interest rate

I like Debenham’s, they sell just about everything you can possible want – and despite their prices being on the steep side I usually buy my kitchen stuff there and other bits and bobs that we find difficult to get anywhere else. So I guess it was natural when we were asked if we wanted a...

“The Debenhams Card”

published 28/10/2005

Discount and bonuses

APR

Now I work for Debenhams, and have done now for a year and if there is one thing I have to do, it's to be able to process account cards. There have been some modifications to the old store card and a new MasterCard has been introduced, but I'm sure you will find all the information you need below...

Interest Rate

With so many cards to choose from you may be wondering if it is still worth having account cards for the big organisations such as Marks & Spencer and Debenhams. These cards are also known as store cards and generally speaking they may only be used at the store named on the card. Some cards like...

First things First. ---------------------- Although I don’t have and never have had a typical Debenhams store card as such (I had the staff discount credit card) I feel I am qualified to write this opinion due to the fact that I spent two years working for Debenhams, almost exclusively in...

High APR - and pressure on staff to open accounts

Firstly of all i would like to point out that i currently work in Debenhams and therefore i know more about the advantages/disadvantages of having a debenhams card than some people who have written their reviews on the site so far. Also there have been a few changes particularly to the "account...

I went into Debenhams in Wigan in the North West and was about to spend around £100 pounds on clothes and various other things. Anyway I had remembered watching a programme on store cards. They said that they are excellent to have so long as you don't misuse them. They also said that you received...

I have had a Debenhams store card for many years now, as you or may not read my Debenhams review, I can spend an awful lot of time in there and an awful lot of money. Debenhams store cards are issued by GE Money, one of the main companies that department stores, such as Debenhams go through when...

High APR

I first became aware of this account card when my mum first applied for one many years ago. This account card has a first downer of being a very high APR of which in my mind has a big red cross over it, but the benifits of the card if used to its full potentional can out weigh and avoid the bad...

“Do you really need this card”

published 09/03/2003

Great place to shop, good bonuses

APR%

I bought an expensive coat from debenhams so I signed up for the card and got a 10% discount worth £15. I'm your typical male I don't exactly live to shop for clothes. However the main advantage of the card is you get occaisional mail that allows you to get what are really quite good offers. e.g...

Exclusive cardholder events

High Interest rate

This card looks really good on the outside, especially if you're a regular shopper in debenhams. The card allows you to spread your payments over a course of months, sometimes years. This is handy for some of their more expensive items, such as designer suits, and for those who spend a lot of...

You may well be bankrupted

Having worked for Debenhams, I am among the people who put their ethics and morals aside and pushed this card to customers for all its worth, with a lot of success. From a sale's adviser's point of view, it's fairly easy to sell: "Would you like to open an account and save 10% NOW and for a WHOLE...

“Golden Goods”

published 10/10/2007

Upmarket shopping experience

Store cards are expensive

I have had Debenhams Gold card for as long as I can remember. It must be 15 years. I have seen just about every aspect to this card that there is over this time. The main reason I keep this card is because the shop I visit has an outstanding range of goods and you can get just about anythingy ou...

Not for me

At least they apologised

Inconvenience and yet more poor customer service

I don’t want to sound like a nagging old fool with a bee in my bonnet where Debenhams is concerned, but I thought I should share this tale which is somewhat related to my previous review regarding the Debenhams wedding list service (Home » Shopping » Offline Shopping » Department Stores »...
