I ordered two single beds/mattresses from Ikea which were delivered a week ago.

After setting up a bed and mattress, we decided they would not be suitable for us and completed a cancellation form with Ikea within 7 days of delivery.


They have advised me that they will refund the bed bases but only provide store credit for mattresses as they have been opened!


They were opened to inspect and also to check that there were no undue smells, which can be associated with memory foam.



The mattresses are unused, there is nothing in their terms and conditions to state that if opened they would not refund, nor in any of there pre sale advice.



We would never purchase anything online without the opportunity to inspect and return for full refund if necessary, so we feel we have been misled here.


The only reference I can find that may possible apply is an exception under the new consumer contracts regs with regard to items

"received sealed for health protection or hygiene reasons once unsealed"

I cannot think that would apply in our circumstances,

we have the right to inspect as in a shop and they are unused,

also they did not advise us anywhere that we would lose any rights should we open them!


I have emailed twice so far and they have refused to budge in their stance so any advice on this matter would be very much appreciated,

Thanks for the contact information, I will give that a try. Yes am aware of memory foam smell, but some I believe much worse and hang around longer, and no did not use as an excuse

but under DSR did not think I needed an excuse?

You should ask what a reasonable person would consider satisfactory for the goods in question?

For example, bargain bucket products won’t be held to as high standards as luxury goods.


Fit for purpose

The goods should be fit for the purpose they are supplied for, as well as any specific purpose you made known to the retailer before you agreed to buy the goods.


As described The goods supplied must match any description given to you, or any models or samples shown to you at the time of purchase.

you can return anything purchased online within 14 days under CRA

same as was with DSR

you don't need an excuse at all.




please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
