I asked for a payment holiday in February. It has been accepted. A month later I paid 2 installments. Overdue and current. 3 days later my credit score dropped 41 points due to a missed payment. Hard to contact the bank and they are not helpful

Great to take out ikea finance but the problems begin when you want to pay it off early and it’s so difficult to find out how to speak to an actual person. Paid off my ikea finance early, then they still took the direct debt payments, when …

Used for IKEA financing. Very poor customer service. We have been awaiting for a response for more than 2months now, and for a refund for at least 5. And Ikea cannot help with reaching them..

Spoke to Josh in customer services who was too afraid to give out his surname.
I wanted to make an early payment over the phone but you can only do that if you are in debt so rubbish bank.

Upon setting up an Ikano bank loan for an Ikea wardrobe I received a “late fee” for my first payment – which was a direct debit. Upon contacting the bank this was due to THEM not setting up my direct debit correctly and through no fault of …

Just want to check balance of my loan and confirm a couple of returns have been credited. Thought this would be straight forward. No-one answering phones. There is no facility to create an online account for loan customers, which would be useful and which I’ve been able to do with other interest free store loans. Not great.

Absolutely ridiculous. I paid off my loan in full just over 2 weeks ago, never had any confirmation about this. After reading several reviews about them still taking money from people’s account’s……..I cancelled the direct debit. Hey presto, it’s only taken 2 days for the threatening letter to show up. Go elsewhere.

I would prefer die rather than dealing with this horrible company. I’ve made full payment and cleared all my balance through automated call and I’ve never received a single confirmation email, letter or anything, and they hung up as soon as they took payment and without receiving any reference.

Good grief. How difficult is this? All I want is confirmation of a payment, why on Earth should I wait 10 days after filling in an online form? If you buy anything substantial from IKEA UK – don’t do it through these awkward bunch.

Used to be easy to contact them prior now they simply use COVID excuse to disable there phone number and asks us to write an email on there website which is very limited space to explain the scenario.

The customer service is horrendous. The website FAQ doesn’t even give solutions. My code won’t work and the advice is “please make sure it is entered correctly.” No apparent phone numbers or email addresses. I won’t be using this bank I’m moving and I’ll never be back.

50 mins in a queue wondering why my card hadn’t shown up 20 days after ordering when the email says 5 to be told it can take up to a month with no apology that their emails are misleading. No other way to contact them but by phone which is clearly not manned to the number of calls.
