Got to give them some credit
Member Name: chel29
Advantages: online, quick delivery, good payments
Disadvantages: cant have BNPL when new customer
As a mother of 3 children I find these online catalouges a dream come true where I can sit in my own living room and order whatever I please without children nagging at me for whatever reason so thats why I thought I would give Very a try. As I have also had a bit of bad credit in the past I wasnt to sure whether they would give me a acocunt but luckily I got an initial credit limit of £400 and I didnt have to pay anything upfront. So I signed up and put all my details in and the good thing is they tell you straight away what your credit limit is and you can spend it right away.
They do everything from womens clothes to mens to kids (although I do find the kids rage quite limited) they also do electrical, furniture and even garden essentials so I thought this was great. When you buy something its very straight foward you just add it to your basket and go to checkout and you pay £3.95 for delivery or if you want it in the morning on a certain day you pay £4.95 which is what I normally do.
When you are a new customer you get a 10% discount off your first order (excluding electricals) so I never got this as the first thing I ordered was a ps3 for my son at christmas. The only thing that annoyed was that it says you can BNPL but as im a new customer I wasnt allowed to do this so I then said "well please take that option off my account then if I cant use it".
Anyway the delivery was second to none as I wanted it for 2 days time but it actually came the next day which I think was great.
When I get my bill in every month I can pay the minimum balance (which adds interest) or I can "take 3" and pay the whole balance off within 3 months and not get charged any interest. This is good if you are a bit short one month and cant afford to pay the higher amount.
The online account is very easy to manage and you can track your orders, pay your bill and view your order history as well as seeing you account balance.
The customer service is always very good when I ring them up about something and even better every month they have certain free treats you can get when you place an order over a certain amount, each month it changes so this month you can get free woolite detergent when you place any order, free nail varnish or a free bronzing brush when you spend over £50, so why not treat yourself today.
You can also go to click and collect to receive or return your parcels incase you dont have time to stay in all day waiting for it to come and there are many outlets for you to choose from to drop it off to in your selected area (so this is very handy)
I can easily go onto my account and arrange a return from my online account and its normally collected the next day and all I have to do is fill out a returns label and sellotape it up.
So all in all I cant fault very in any way really because I havnt had a bad experience and I think their prices a revery reasonable. I like the convenience of the online catalouge and their sales are always worth a look.
So I wouls reccomend them and I think most people would find something they like and If you get a credit account it really helps you to spread the cost of some things you sometimes cant buy outright.
Summary: give them some credit and they might give you some to
