I would give no stars to these bunch of jokers if that was an option!
I haven't heard from them at all about my bean bag order which I placed on 7th November last year. I've repeatedly tried to call them and contact them via their online contact us form. I've never heard anything back from them at all. They have no customer service to speak of what soever. The worst thing is I get regular newsletters from them about their offers! Has anyone out there actually got in touch with these people and had any luck in getting a refund or the products they have actually ordered. On their web site they say they have 'Over 100,000 happy cutomers' but how many unhappy customers do they have???
My wife ordered the Bean bag through Infurn/Groupon in November last year. Like so many others they have still not delivered and now we are getting no response to our emails. I would love to be able to speak to them, although I am guessing they know how useless they are by now.
Does anyone know the best way to get a refund from these guys? Has anyone got the delivery charge (what a joke) back from Infurn?
I too have fallen victim to Infurn and what can only be best described as THEFT.
I ordered a BIG BOY XXL Bean Bag in November 2011 for a christmas present through Groupon.
It is now 26th April and i have received NOTHING.
Out of roughly 35 emails and 8 phone calls i have received TWO actual replies (all others were automated) stating of delays with a courier firm that was being switched to another. As for Groupon i think i got again 2 for 30ish.
My order status had a PDF box pop up a few days ago with an invoice dated 17/04/12 which clearly has since gone.
I'm sorry but if they had no intentions to supply then this offer should never have been advertised. Groupon are just as responsible and negligent in this matter.
THIEVES! You know it, everyone here knows it and i'm hoping this passes around so others know it before ordering.
Why can we not put negative or zero ratings?
I have now forwarded my complaint to Watchdog, anyone else want to add a voice?
9th May, i suprised myself by calling infurn again and fell over when someone answered.
I spoke to <NAME REMOVED> who assured me that all orders will be delivered within three weeks, not only that, they will be calling to confirm delivery.
Updates at the end of may, fingers crossed, yet still doubtful.
Jeg bestilte i december 2011 2 big boy stole - gennem en DownTown-deal. Stole skulle være til levering inde jul ... der blive liiiiiige lidt forsinkelse på (først hed det januar - så medio februar og slutteligt primo marts)
INFURN har jeg ikke haft held til at komme igennem med - jeg har derfor også prøvet deal levrandøren -uden held ...
Eller ... jeg fik besked om mine stole ville ankomme primo marts måned .... der er nu gået snart 2 måneder ift seneste deadline og snart et halvt år siden jeg betalte...
Kan kun opfordre alle til at undlade at købe hos INFURN
I was told when I wrote my previous review on here on 10th February that the beanbag had finally been shipped and should be with me in 2 weeks but I have still not had anything and the tracking number still does not work. I emailed Infurn and have just been ignored.
We have since suffered a family tragedy and really can't be dealing with this any longer.
If anyone from Infurn sees this can you please refund the postage I paid to you (£13ish I think) and I will try to get a refund from Groupon as well so I can order from another site (after checking their reviews!)
I too ordered a Big Boy beanbag in early November. I ordered one through Groupon (Pink) and another through Go Groopie (Black). The black one arrived just before Xmas, with the promise of the pink one too. This delivery then changed to the New Year and then in January changed to March, then I was suddenly offered a refund or an alternative through Groupon. I opted for the refund, which Groupon did. After enquiring about the postage refund - I was told to contact Infurn. After nearly 6 months and NUMEROUS emails to them (I have lost count!!) I still have not had any contact from Infurn. After reading the comments on this site - I realise that I am not alone!!!
I even made contact with the BBC Watchdog - maybe if more people do - they might investigate further.
I cannot believe in this economic climate that a company can afford to treat its customers in this way,
On the plus side I do have to say that the Black beanbag is great, if I could have had my Pink one I would have been more than happy.
Good luck to to everyone else, especially those who have lost more than me!!
I wrote this review having read that Infurn is automatically informed and that people had actually received contact/refunds/products after posting a review. Well mine was posted 2 weeks ago - and it hasn't made the slightest difference - maybe the pink beanbag is winging its way to me now - oh no its just that flying pig!!!
I received an email on 8th May from Infurn - HURRAY - informing me that I would receive my refund within 10 working days. Well that must be on its way with the flying pig - as you guessed it no refund has been received!!!
On 11th May I also got one from Groupon stating that they had taken over the refunds and it would be within 5 working days - well that hasn't happened either!!!!!
What a surprise!!!! So I am still waiting for my refund almost 7 months on.
I ordered my Bean Bag on 23/11/NOV and am still waiting. Like most of the other reviewers i was given a DHL tracking number, which is useless. I was then told they had changed to a different delivery Company and it would be delivered in around 2 weeks. That was 4 weeks ago..( Now 24th April) I have just asked for refund, I am not expecting much luck.
None of the phone numbers work.
If the company is haveing problems with orders it should inform it's customers. Clearly this is not happening. A very poor Company indeed.
Do not Use this company...
UPDATE 3rd May 2012-
After contacting groupon they refunded my money within 10 Days, they also gave me £12.95 groupon credit to cover my delivery charge. Well done groupon. The funniest thing is I am typing this whilst sitting on my bean bag as 2 days after groupon cancelled my order my bean bag turned up... I guess I should sure now contact groupon/ infurn to let them know !! Prehaps I should just take 5 months to send it back to them !!
Lad vær med at handle hos Infurn! Ville ønske jeg havde læst trustpilot inden jeg bestilte en vare hos Infurn.
Jeg bestilte i november en Bigboy XXL hos Infurn efter et tilbud hos downtown. Jeg har endnu ikke modtaget min vare på trods af utallige henvendelser hos Infurn. De har haft skrevet et par gange, at nu var min vare på vej, men når man så spørg ind til en dato bliver der stille og man får bare de åndsvage retur mails om at nu har de modtaget ens mail - hvad med at svare på det man spørg om?!?
Jeg har spredt ordet vidt og bredt omkring Infurn og har heldigvis fået nogle til IKKE at bestille hos dem.
Nu ser jeg til min overraskelse, at der ligger en meddelse fra Infurn her på trustpilot at de har skiftet deres team ud hos Infurn og at fra slut februar 2012 skulle der være rettet op på fejl mm. Hmmm... Det har jeg ikke lige mærket noget til
Hvordan man kan få lov at køre et så uprofessionelt firma er mig en gåde...

Ordered a bean bag in November 2011 as a Christmas present to my nephew......a sad imitation of a bean bag arrived in March 2012!!It was about one quarter filled with cheap polystyrene foam things,absolutely awful.Was too embarassed to give it to my nephew,got refund from Pigsback.com but I've sent numerous emails to these people demanding a refund of my postage but haven't even received the courtesy of a return email.Like most other reviews,STAY AWAY FROM INFURN.
Pity I cant rate this company as a minus 10 because the 1 star I had to give them is no way deserved.

I ordered a beanbag from Infurn in November. I never recieved the beanbag (which was an xmas present). Groupon refunded me the payment for the beanbag, but infurn never refunded the delivery costs which they charged. They will not respond to my emails other than automatically generated emails which stated they will be in touch shortly. Avoid this company or you surely will be out of pocket!!

Anyone who is considering buying from either INFURN or Groupon must be mad. Be sensible and read the reviews.
Sadly I have the same story as everyone else posting reviews on here.
I ordered the Big Boy beanbag in November 2011 and on the 20th April 2012 and have not received anything to date, except numerous apologies and a couple of 'discount' vouchers for INFURN, which I will never use.
I couldn't get hold of any humans at INFURN, so I referred my complaints to Groupon who have been utterly useless if I'm honest.
I had an 'estimated' shipping date from INFURN for the 5th-12th March 2012 for delivery of the beanbag, which although seemed like a very generous waiting time I was happy to wait. But guess what...nothing arrived and no communication has been received by way of explanation from either company.
I have told Groupon that despite providing a poor service (if you can call it that) I did not want a refund and stated that if I had not received the item within a substantial time period I would want to know why.
A month has passed and not a word had been heard until I chased Groupon today (20-04-2012). I was advised that all orders were shipped on the 30th March 2012, so I wonder….. WHERE IS IT!?
Subsequently I have asked Groupon to provide the following as I DO NOT believe INFURN are capable:
1) provide proof that shows "all orders were shipped on 30/3/2012 "
2) provide proof of a "tracking code or other proof of shipping"
A while ago now I logged into the ‘my account’ section and then into the ‘order history’ section on INFURNS site to discover that the 'Tracking ID’ had been updated to ‘hand delivery’. That clearly meant very little because to my surprise when I logged in today there was a pdf icon next to the ‘hand delivery’ status. I opened up what I can only describe as a ‘delivery note’. This all seemed very strange to me, as nothing has been delivered.
On further inspection the delivery date says 17-04-2012 – 4 days ago. Then I noticed that there was a SECOND ‘delivery time’ stating ‘Week beginning: 04.01.2012’ perhaps I am reading the date wrong….it was either the 4th January 2012 or the 1st of April 2012 – either way I AM STILL WITHOUT MY BEANBAG.
INFURN you monumentally suck.
So THANKS Infurn.
26th April 2012
I'm seeking a lady called Mary who sent me a message in response to my review. The message contained useful contact details. Mary - if you're reading this please could you re-send me the details as they have literally disappeared from my inbox. It's almost like the message self-destructed after I read it!! :-(

One star is generous, should be zero. After ordering a BigBoy XL through Groupon/Infurn back in October, had 3 promised dates for delivery all that came and went. Was told my ordered had been cancelled before the estimated delivery date of the final promise. Groupon refunded my £39 within the stated four weeks, still waiting for Infurn to refund my delivery costs, £13.95. It has now been 9 weeks, no response to emails, no phone calls answer or returned. Groupon don't come out of this with flying colours but at least they communicate with their customers and refund money they are due.
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
There website proudly states * Money back guarantee. LIES!
Like so many others on here I have been waiting and waiting for the Groupon beanbag to show up. My girlfriend ordered it for me for Christmas (2011 just to be clear).
Still no show and Groupon have now apparently cancelled and refunded all money paid to them. So delivery costs? based on the information on here I'm not holding my breath. And ideally I would've preferred the beanbag because to buy a similar product it's more like £150 ish + delivery.
I've submitted a complaint to Citizens Advice Online regarding this so called "deal" and I would encourage anyone in the same boat to do the same. Totally unfair to be waiting so long and the response (when you finally get one) is just "have your money back and we're square".
Also to note:
"Any problems arising from the previous management team will be fully resolved by February 2012. "
This is on your own information on the right of this website. It's now April and the problems are still ongoing!
Like many people I made the unfortunate mistake (never to be repeated) of buying a BigBoy through Infurn. THat was 6 months ago and since then I've had a letter in the post saying delivery is soon, that was 2 months ago and nothing since.
I've sent emails to their support email and have tried their UK number and have never received a reply from anyone, or spoken to anyone at the company.
Is this just the biggest scam that Groupon have unveiled on their willing participants? I can't believe a real company would risk such damage to their reputation to behave in such a way.
If anyone has managed to get anything out of Infurn, or has a contact number I can try please email me. The next stop will be trading standards or consumer protection bodies. Judging by the hundreds of similar stories out there perhaps a group action should be considered against Infurn.
Bought a deal for a bigboy xxl beanbag last november. after delays and more delays I got an email saying I wouldnt be getting my beanbag. Groupon issued my voucher refund immediately but I am still waiting for Infurn to refund my postage. I have emailed and emailed. Cant get through on any of the numbers. This is quite possibly the worst company I have ever dealt with!
heres my story...!
ordered 3 big boys via groupon 7/11/12...got fed up of waiting and cancelled 8/3/12. got money back off groupon no probs but still waiting for carriage refund from infurn. was supposed to be refunded automatically 2/3/12...nothing. chased sonya 30/3/12 and was told it would be done within the week...nothing...chasing again now, no response to emails and calls going straight to answer phone! the saga continues...
I too ordered 2 Navy Bean Bags on 26th October through an offer with Who Pays Full Price.2 postage charges were debited to my account. They were for Christmas presents but, as time went on realised they would not arrive in time, One was eventually delivered between Christmas and New Year-No sign of Number 2! I emailed and was told that I only ordered ONE-So why did you take TWO Postage charges from my Account? I then found my voucher codes and ordered !anotheess what no Bean Bagr on 10 January. deliver was due W/C 3rd March-Guess what No Bean Bag! I@ve emailed several times and eventually got a reply from 'Mike@ who told me to contact Master Logistics the delivery company, I did and was told by Sue that a load were sent out W/C 26th March, so wait till beginning of the next week. Then it was Easter so left until the week after , emailed Infurn again-No reply, Phoned Master logitics and emailed, told to email another email address-Still no bean Bag or response! All I want to know is when is this Bean Bag going to be delivered? My account says it is with DHL 30/3/12-Tracking Number INVALID! Also my refund for the original Postage, when will that be sorted out? I hope that someone from Infurn will see this and respond by telephone as I have requested in numerous emails!-Pigs might Fly.
UPDATE_20th April 2012- I eventually got hold of Sonja Harris yesterday morning-a human being at last! Her number is on the right hand side of this page. She told me that BCC was a freight company in Spain and that my order was due to be delivered today, if it didn't arrive to phone her at 5pm and she'll look into it further for me.
Well low and behold 8.15Am ring at the door bell and You Guessed it My Bean Bag has arrived with City Link.
My order was cancelled by Go Groopie on the understanding that Infurn would be refunding the £14.95 postage fee that I paid for my beanbag, which didn't arrive for 4 months or so. I have emailed Infurn but not received a response yet, could I be emailed with details of when I will receive this. Thanks/
I also bought the Groupon deal for the BigBoy Beanbag from Infurn in November 2011 and ordered it on 3 December 2011, last day to redeem. Was told the delivery time was up to 6 weeks, this would have been 14 January 2012 at the latest.
I got an email from Groupon on 24 January 2012 to say that there was a delay in delivery and would be no later than 17 February 2012. It also gave me £40 off another order (good job i did not take them up on that like some other unfortunate people I have read about). I waited for this to come but still nothing.
I emailed Infurn on 18 February 2012 regarding the order not being delivered as promised by the original deal or by Groupon's email. I got a surprisingly quick response on 21 February 2012 stating that due to high demand that they had delays but were working flat out to dispatch my order. It went on to say that my order had actually been dispatched to the shipping company in Germany (no name given) on 27 January 2012 and once it was in the UK it would be delivered by FedEx or DHL. Once that happened the shipping reference number would change to a tracking number.
I have since emailed Infurn regarding the progress of my order and asking about a possible refund on both 8 March 2012, 26 March 2012, 10 April 2012 and today, but I have still to get a reply to any of these requests.
So I tried to see if they were ignoring the emails and having the telephone off the hook intentionally by emailing them through someone else email address regarding a possible order for a beanbag on 10 April 2012 at 12:40 and I received a response the same day at 13:47 stating that they had these items available for faster delivery, I should expect them within 4 weeks and that they also had them on special should I want to order one and shared this link:
(Do not be fooled by this crock that they gave me as you will be in the same boat as the rest of us)
That just proved that it to me. Since I have been in touch with a local solicitor that deals with these type of issues and I am going for a meeting with them next week to discuss my options and how to take things further.
I also would love to get onto Dominic Littlewood to chase down the two directors of the parent company of Designfurn Limited and get a reason to all this. All the information on them that I can get is as follows:
Designfurn Limited, wholly owned by Infurn Holdings PLC
Infurn Holdings PLC - Directors
Dennis Hoffman, Address - Hufeisen 24, Klenmachnow.
Ingo Eigner - Address - Kollwitzstrasse 19, Berlin, Germany
Infurn Holdings PLC - Company Secretary
Michael Curle, Address - 72 New Cavendish Street, London, W1G 8AU (Same address as the company's registered office)
Infurn Holdings PLC - Shareholding
No details yet, but Companies House is looking to strike off the company due to the annual return not being submitted.
Designfurn Limited - Director
Andreas Jenk, Address - 605 Antonine Heights, City Walk, London, SE1 3DF
Designfurn Limited - Company Secretary
STM Nominee Secretaries Limited, Address - 1a Pope Street, London SE1 3PR (Same as registered office) (Probably just the allocated one from incorporation)
All this information can be found on Companies House website but I thought I would share it with you to make it easier :)
I ordered my bean bag in November 2011 and I have been emailing them ever since like every one else no contact number as it just goes to a voice mail. I ordered this bean bag as I trust groupon and made several purchases with them, but now which I hadn't bothered with this company they seem to give the same excuse to every body. I feel we should all try go to the media about this as it is totally wrong what this company are doing keeping our money and not supplying the goods.
I feel so angry that they keep ignoring my emails.
DO NOT ORDER FROM INFURN
Update 22nd April 2012
Just so all of you know as I haven't yet received my Bean Bag I have now emailed watchdog and I urge you all to do the same that way our story might be heard publicly, which companies hate.
So please get sending your stories to http://www.bbc.co.uk/watchdog/gotastory/
I have decided to repost my first two posts (both below) dated 4th March and then 18th March in the hope to actually hear something from Infurn.
I am now e-mailing them on a daily basis to chase my refund but I've still not heard anything, if i'm lucky I get an automated response saying they have received my e-mail and someone will contact me, these e-mails originally said contact would be with in two days, now they say "soon"..........I wonder how long that means?
Please can I have my money back Infurn?? You have failed to meet my expectations and have had money money since November 2011. How this company is still allowed to trade????
Wish I had never purchased from this joke of a company, 6 week delivery period passed 10 weeks ago, emails get ignored and phone calls always go to a recorded message. Groupon are no help either they have told me to expect a response from Infurn within 10 days, i'm still waiting for a response to my email I sent in January so if I hear something within 10 days I will amazed. I certainly won't be using this company ever again even with my £40 discount voucher. Use this dodgy company at your own risk!!
It is now 18th March and my order (au-83612) is still nowhere to be seen. I was advised my beanbag was with DHL for delivery however the tracking number did not exist, I then to my surprise received and email from Infurn saying my delivery was with a company called master logistics and they were withholding the delivery, hmmmm passing the blame I think! I then phoned master logistics who guessed I was phoning about a beanbag as they had 17000 to deliver, they were very helpful and told me that all 17000 would be delivered by 16th March but if I didn't receive one it was because they hadn't received my order.
Well guess what...........I guess they never received my order.........
This was originally a Christmas present, then a Birthday present for next week, looks like I will have to buy something else yet again.
After 19 weeks of waiting I have finally given up and will now be requesting a refund, hopefully Infurn will have the decency to reply and confirm that my postage costs will be refunded ASAP, or maybe it's a 19 week for that as well!
Good luck to anyone else unlucky enough to have ordered from this company, how they are allowed to trade is beyond belief
Reluctantly, I have given up on ever receiving my BigBoy bean bag. I have asked Groupon to action a purchase price refund and like many other people will have to forgo the postage.

I also ordered a giant Beanbag through Groupon at the beginning of November as a Christmas present for my children and have waited and waited and still nothing. Groupon told me a delivery date and I waited in with two young children all day on Feb half term and nothing arrived. I also in blind faith took up the offer of money off a further order with Infurn and ordered a bean bag for our dog too- HOW STUPID DO I FEEL NOW I HAVE READ ALL OF THESE SHOCKING REVIEWS. Groupon offered to refund for the original order but we still really wanted the bean bag as we have promised our children and therefore declined it. I do not drive and am virtually housebond therefore I heavily rely on internet companies for my purchases. This was by no means a rash decision, we are in a recession as everybody knows and every penny counts. I actually feel sickened by this companies deplorable attitude towards their customers. I have thought very seriously about taking this to the small claims court but I think it would be far more effective to take this to the Media. I am sure both Infurn and Groupon would not want to see their name on a particular consumer show or internet sight. I have posted this in the hope that I will be contacted and receive what I have paid for. Having sent emails that have never been replied to and made calls that are never answered I will be heard, one way or another, as a minority group I will not be sidelined like this.

I also booked and paid for both my bean bags and delivery. After waiting 4 months groupons inform me that infurn cannot keep the order and so it was cancelled. In the same email they told me I would be refunded my postage within 14 days. That was over one month ago. I have emailed infurn twice and only the automated reply. I am due to be refunded for four bean bags. I am getting really cross now and looking into suing them unless sorted in the next two weeks. Any body got any advice.

AND THE STORY CONTINUES....
Previous poor reviews posted for infurn sparked a very a apologetic phone call from the 'new management' team saying that my experience was not typical - unbelievable. I received confirmation from Sonja Harris, their Customer Relations Supervisor, who confirmed that I would get a refund of my delivery charges and the charge for 2 x Bean Bags order but received in such poor quality they agreed to honour a refund. I received an email to say that a refund had been processed but.......
GUESS WHAT...... NO RESPONSE AND NO REFUND AND IT IS NOW 6 WEEKS AFTER THE CONFIRMATION WAS RECEIVED.
I will not let Infurn get away with this level of service and will pursue them through any means possible. I hope this review serves as a stark warning to anyone thinking of buying through them
Another unsatisfied Groupon customer
I ordered 3 bigboy bean bags and after 4 months 2 arrived. 1 is still to arrive 6 months after the order and now I see nothing of the delivery on Infurns website
The 2 that I did receive are marked and clearly not of good quality and having been asked to send pictures to prove it this is the response I received from Infurn:
Thank you for your email.
Our filling is made from recycled materials of which some of the material is dark in colour and can be seen through the cover of the Lime Green Bean bags.
Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about this, we can only suggest storing the filling in an extra bag.
As far as we are aware, this problem is only found in this colour product.
DO THEY THINK THAT I AM THAT STUPID OR THAT THIS IS AN ACCEPTABLE ANSWER???
If you are reading this review before you order then think again as they are a terrible company to do business with and you can never get hold of them. This includes them changing there website at times to stop you even being able to review you order status. Very customer focused!!

I would get a BigBoy for Christmas. but it was moved to January, and I waited and waited. Today is April 1, and it has still not arrived.
Sonia Harris, you are responsible for around a month ago that you would send my purple BigBoy "Tomorrow", so where is it?
It remains for me to get the week beginning 10 February ...
We have already demanded to have it now, or have the money back. Nothing happens.
And when I read reviews where they write that they've been waiting 2 YEARS on their things, I am worried.
Grateful for answer. But even more grateful I become if I get my BigBoy. Or at least my money back.
I ordered via Groupon 2 Giant bean bags in November 2011 but they did not materialise so I cancelled about a month ago.
Groupon refunded my purchase price but I have found it impossible to get my P&P refunded from Infurn.
If there was a facility to award minus stars I would.
I will never deal with this company again, and recommend others do likewise.

Like many of the other posts I have recevied terrible customer service from infurn. I placed an order for 2 bean bags back in November and they were forever changing my delivery time. In the end groupon pulled the order. I have been emailing them on a daily basis looking for my money back for postage and have yet to get a response. Phones are always on voicemail so that they don't have to speak to anyone. The only reason why they got 1 star was because I couldn't give them less! Would never reccomend using this company.
I ordered a bigboy XXL almost 5 months and have yet to receive it. This is an absolute joke. They don't even have the decency to reply to my queries and all i get is blasted generated emails saying my concern is being processed. Then they have the cheek to send us newsletters saying they are giving away free bigboy xxl's if we spend over 500 pound. How about they deliver our initial PAID for bigboy xxl before they go making offers like that. This my first ever review of anything online, THATS how annoyed i've become over this. I feel like we're being treated like insignificant peasants that deserve neither respect nor a decent explanation as to why they took our money and ignored us there after. How is this legal?
I wasn't long receiving an email back from infurn once i'd posted this complaint. my order has now been canceled apparently by groupon though i was never once informed about this. Now i will probably struggle another 5 months to get my money back from infurn. 12.95 for delivery was EASY money made by infurn clearly. what fools we were all taken for.
Still waiting for a postage refund of £12.95 from the cancel groupon.
I've emailed firstname.lastname@example.org several occassions, still no response except for automated emails. .
Tried emailing email@example.com today - instant delivery failure.
I would like my £12.95 back please....

Re posting this , hoping that Infurn will get in touch with : it worked like a charm the first time , they called me something like 4 hours I posted !
Ridiculous , anyway , I thought that would be the end of my loooooong wait , but hahaha , of course not !
They DID try to deliver the item , but of course in the middle of a working day , I work 30 minutes from my home , so , of course I couldn't drop everything to open the door , the guy on the phone , said that it was ok , I could call to organise a redelivery date ....
I came back home at night .... no phone number , name of the delivery company ...nothing ...
And here I am again , trying to contact Infurn , via email and phone , to get a phone number and name so I can re arrange a redelivery ...
It's starting to get old ...
DON@T BUY ANYTHING AT INFURN , it's a waste of time and money !
older post :
I've oredered a bigboy in NOVEMBER last year , and I am still waiting for it ! Worst , I am still waiting for news from the customer service , it is shamefull , I am extremly unhappy with all this and I wish I never felt for this ; it feels more and more like a scam !
I have never EVER wrote any review on the internet , it is a shame that my first time is for such a scandalous reason !
19 weeks !! still no news ...
I got my beanbag today folks. Don't give up hope. Keep at them. Mine was delivered 20weeks and 1 day after ordering.
Still absolutely shocking service though. No way of getting a call unless you post a bad review! Ridiculous.
I will never ever in my life buy from infurn again.
Again ordered 2 x Beanbags on the 7th November and told they would be delivered before Christmas (nice present for the kids) didn't arrive, given other dates they came and went, got 1 delivered on the 14th February still waiting on the 2nd bag was given a fake DHL number to track still waiting at least 1 of my kids are happy.I still see Infurn are still selling the bags on other discount sites, If you were that bothered about customers satisfaction there should be a freeze on sales until you catch up with outstanding orders, I've been waiting nearly 5 months (shocking) trading standards need to be informed.

Mine is the same story as everybody else,
I ordered the Big Boy Bean Bag (which it actually turns out it isn't the original Big Boy as advertised but a knock off!)
I ordered it back in November 2011, I heard nothing, I tried contacting them to know where it was as it was a Christmas present but nobody contacted me back.
Eventually I got a generic response saying shipping had been postponed and here's a £40 voucher, but I can assure you I will not be using their service again and will be actively telling everybody I know to steer clear.
Anyway - You all know the story so I needn't go on.
Groupon have refunded me the original costs as the replacement bean bag they found was not suitable for my needs. They have apologised profuseley and actually seem really very embarrassed to have been involved with infurn as a company, rightly so!
I was told that infurn will automatically refund my shipping costs by the 14th March. Well it’s now the 25th March and not surprisingly infurn have not refunded me my money, and are also uncontactable.
This company is absolutely appalling and I think it’s about time trading standards got involved.
They are thieves and it makes me so angry that they are allowed to get away with it.
I wish there was an option to give minus stars as they certainly don't deserve even 1!
I'd be interested to know how many of these reviews they've actually got back to, but they're probably just burying their heads in the sand regarding these too.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ORDER FROM INFURN!!
Not going to repeat everyone elses experiences as mine are the same. Beanbag order early November,- no beanbag, no email replies and unable to speak to anyone on the phone. The fact that I keep receiving the stupid newsletters adds salt to the wound... Will never order another thing off these amateurs again. Offered a refund by Groupon but I don't want a refund- I want my beanbag!
I am just leaving this review to show my appreciation for the help I received from Sonia Harris who has the unfortunate job of having to deal with the backlash that the company INFURN has caused with their lack of customer service.
A couple of weeks ago I left a review of Infurn on this website because like most other people on here, I'd ordered theBig Boy XXL Beanbag using the £40 promotional voucher from Groupon. I placed my order on 7th Nov and was told it would take 6 weeks for delivery. When I left my review 2 weeks ago, I still hadn't received my order and every time I phoned I got a recorded message telling me to email the company and every time I emailed the company, if I was lucky enough to recieve a reply, I got a generic email telling me about the unexpected high demand for the beanbag was to blame for the delay.
This Tuesday (27th March) I received a phone call from Sonia Harris, explaining that she had saw my review and she was now dealing with all customer service issues that Infurn had. She gave me a phone number where I could contact her directly if I had to (at last I had a real person on the phone) and she assured me I would have my beanbag by Monday 2nd of April. When I came off the phone I felt more reassured than I had done since I started dealing with this company but I was still sceptical about whether I would actually receive my order as it had been going on for so long.
Yesterday, (Thursday 29th March) I got my beanbag 4 days earlier than Sonia had said! I am extremely pleased with the quality of this product and my daughter is really happy to get her Christmas present. So I just want to say a big thank you to Sonia Harris for her help and I only wish it had been her who was dealing with Infurn customer service from the start as I don't think there would have been as many customers having such an unpleasant experience with this company.
Same story as everyone here, ordered beanbag via groupon in November. No sightings of said beanbag.
Groupon have this week refunded me my £39.
I now need Infurn to refund me the £12.95 I paid them on 16th November 2011 for postage and packaging of imaginary beanbag.........
...Than get any sort of meaningful information out of infurn. I have lost count of the amount of e-mails sent to these ineffective scam artists. Most people at least seem to be able to get into their "account" on the infurn website. I have never managed this, I keep getting sent blank password e-mails every time I try to log in.
My boyfriend and I both ordered these mid November, and same old story. Never got any delivery dates until January when I received an e-mail saying it was on its way. Like everyone I took this with a pinch of salt.
Groupon contacted everyone in ~February saying they were swapping suppliers and all outstanding orders had been cancelled with infurn and placed with this new company (mine was done without my permission, and I have since contacted Groupon, and am in the process of getting a refund)
Any orders "already sent" from Infurn would obviously not be transferred, as they had supposedly already been sent. Well Groupon informed me that one of our bean bags had been dispatched on the 24th of January. Hmmm I think even sending it by pack mule would be able to get a bean bag here in two months. I have been in constant contact with Groupon, who also don't seem to be able to get any answers out of Infurn.
People actually seem to be getting a response here, so I thought I would give it a go.
