Bought £1,100 worth of US dollars

25 December 2020

I bought £1100 worth of US dollars for my holiday. They did not come when they said they would. I had to leave for my holiday and so l requested a refund, it’s a week of waiting. I am away on holiday, l am having to spend Christmas without any money. Very very disappointed

Sold 19 Vietnamese dongs

Our trip was cancelled 12 hours before departure due to Coronavirus.

As there is no John Lewis Bureau de change where we live ( I purchased foreign currency using click and collect). I went to Marks and Spencer where I was advised to contact John Lewis as M&S were buying back currently purchased from them at sell rates where trip was cancelled due to Coronavirus.

I contacted John Lewis where were informed they were not matching anyone else’s exchange arrangements and told me their buy back rates which would mean I lost some £140!!!!!!!

My advice don’t use John Lewis for foreign currency I certainly never will again. M and S here I come at they genuinely care about their customers

Have used John Lewis previously and always pleased with the service. The rate offered this time was once again the best exchange rate on the day, I received good communication throughout the transaction via email and text. Next day delivery promise and as usual within the 1pm deadline promise - prompt at 11am. Excellent service.

Bought £5400 worth of US Dollars

Ordered online for delivery to store. Came on time as promised. Minor drawback for me, had to order three lots due to £2500 limit. Two of the three orders came on one day and the third the next day which is what was stated. Couldn’t understand the logic behind this given all orders placed one after another. Picked up when all in store.
