Overall Score

H&M is a clothing retail company that is based out of Switzerland. They operate several stores in 53 different countries. H&M is the second largest clothing retail in the store and ranks slightly higher than GAP, a US based company. We found that H&M is upgrading their stores throughout the US. A recent store that opened up in Hawaii in March of 2014 has unique artwork from local Hawaiian artists, a commentary on the cultural life of Hawaii. H&M prides itself on making each regional or area store unique to the locale. There are many good things about H&M in terms of its corporate DNA. They control all of their retail operations in Europe, making sure that the right number of products is produced. This results in a high availability of their items online at a reasonable price. We also found that on the H&M website that there were very few items that were sold out. There is nothing more frustrating for a customer when they see a special item on sale that is no longer available. H&M also prides itself on charity. They have a partnership with UNICEF and have raised more than $5 million for that organization. This was one of the few charity-friendly online clothing retailers that we found while doing research for this review process.

The Good

  • Low Prices
  • Valuable Promotions
  • H&M has Been in Business Over 16 Years
H&M has a loyal fan base for many reasons, some of which includes:

Low Prices

Finding items of clothing at an affordable price is one of if not the most important aspects of a particular store. H&M excels in this category while maintaining high standards of quality and trendiness. Prices vary between categories, but it's reasonable to see t-shirts and long-sleeve shirts available for a low $5 to $12. There is a large number of products listed on their website. The product search tool helps locate clothing type, brand, and what other customers have purchased. You can also see other items that are particularly a good fit from similar clothing items of your choosing. There are several unique designers featured as H&M products, including Versace. They frequently reach out to designers in the industry to make items that would be appropriate fits for their stores.

Valuable Promotions

As you shop online through the H&M catalog, you will be greeted warmly with multiple promotions designed to help you save money. For example, currently H&M has a promotion that allows shoppers to save 30% off their purchase. Another promotion gives you 20% off when you sign up for their newsletter. These and other promotions are time sensitive but thankfully are replaced with other, sometimes even better, promotions when time runs out.

H&M has Been in Business over 16 Years

The online clothing business can be a challenge to break into and develop a passionate and loyal customer base. H&M has been able to do this over the past 16 years they have been operating in the United States. Their processes for both in-store and online over the years should give potential shoppers an element of confidence as they become customers. Shopping for clothes online can be a messy business with returns and refunds, and their rating indicates adequate customer resolution practices being in place currently. H&M also provides clothing options for men, women, and kids. This allows their store to become more of a one-stop shop for families searching for clothes.

The Bad

  • Average Return Policy
  • H&M Does Not Offer Free Shipping
H&M falls short in two distinct areas:

Average Return Policy

While H&M has low prices and trendy products make them an enticing company to shop from, their return policy is average at best. Their return policy states 30 days being given from a purchase date to when a return will no longer be accepted. H&M does not accept items that have been worn or damaged. While there are stores who have policies much longer and shorter than this, their policy falls right in the middle of the road as far as valuable return policies are concerned. Another unfortunate feature is you can't return items purchased online in the physical store nor can you mail in store items in order to get a refund. This makes the return process frustrating for some customers.

H&M Does Not Offer Free Shipping

No free shipping option is included on their website. However, as you dig deeper into their policy it's relatively easy to see why it would be valuable to many shoppers nevertheless. Most orders are delivered within 3 to 5 business days (an additional 2 days should be given for rural addresses) and there is a flat shipping rate of $5.95 regardless of the size and weight of your package. If you have a heavy, possibly more expensive order, you won't be breaking the bank even without a free shipping option.
gavel

The Bottom Line

Overall, H&M is recommended to those searching for clothing items that are affordable and stylish. Their merchandise and costs are extremely competitive, their sale items were not frequently selling out, and customers can find deals on items and not worry about a "sold out" mark on that sale item they are wanting to purchase. However, the H&M return policy has less to be desired and they do not offer free shipping. Regardless, H&M is a solid online clothing store option that will help you look stylish and save money.

H&M has really good clothes at very good prices. I do not dry my clothes in a dryer which helps the clothes I buy from H&M last longer. The shirts are the clothes that will wear out the fastest if not taken care of. The sweaters are really nice and they have really nice dress pants. The jeans run small and I normally don't buy them. The shoes will wear out fast as well. If you're looking for an economical way to look good, H&M is the place to go.

H&M online is the worst company to get things from online they take way longer than they say it will to ship, it comes out of the U.S. so it takes longer to get to you. (over a Month). The items were wrong so I returned them just to be told after waiting a week after they got the items back that my refund would take not 3-5 days as explained in the return notice but 30 days. Still have not received my credit. Never using them again

H&M is a great place to get fashionable clothing at pretty fantastic prices. One great thing about them is that their locations are often found outside major cities, making it easy to find good clothes if you live in such a place. It needs to be said though that some of their clothes are not great quality and that this doesn't always correspond with price: many of the men's cotton button-up shirts seem to disintegrate within just a few washes. However, if you are discerning, you can get a lot of fantastic long-lasting clothes for a great price (several jackets, shirts, and pants I have from there I still wear going on 7 years now. DON'T buy their shoes.

I always go into an H&M store with high hopes...but come out with nothing. They have good prices on clothing and a lot of inventory, but I think you have to be under 25 to appreciate their shirts, pants and accessories.

SHIPPING FAILURE!!! Ordered 11/19/20 with a 12-15 day shipping notice. Items shipped 11/26/20 and reached their shipping partner on 12/1/20 (never accepted by USPS). No updates since. I called CS last week and was told there wasn't anything they could do until today. I called back today and they said there still isn't any movement (no kidding) and they would open an investigation. I'm not hopeful after seeing all the other reviews. This was my first (AND LAST) online order from H&M.

Don’t recommend purchasing from this place one bit. I paid through PayPal like I do everything else and somehow H&M pulled up my address from 2 years ago that I removed from my PayPal account. Called right away after placing order to just be told they can’t change my address and I’ll have to try contacting the shipping carrier to get it delivered to the correct address which I couldn’t do because H&M requested I can’t change the delivery address. I called again to see about refund since I can’t receive it and they told me I had to wait until package was delivered to wrong address and they can issue the refund then so I called back once again after this happened. They are now telling me I have to wait until the 8th of November in order to hear back on whatever they are doing and emailing the carrier to do whatever. This was all pointless and a waste of time and money. I paid over a month ago and they continue to play games and say they can’t change anything or issue the refund.

I really like that H&M has great basics and styling pieces that compliment my wardrobe. However, I am a little turned off by the fact that they are a fast-fashion brand. I wish that the clothes from here were made in a more sustainable way because it would motivate me to buy more clothes from them.

Like there out of stock when in fact there not and i have to reorder those items. It pisses me off so bad and im waisting my time and money!!! I would give a 2 star but because the clothes are great and so are the prices its a 4.

I love H&M. Their prices are affordable, and their styles are so cute (and sometimes a little weird, but it's fine). Some of my favorite tops are from H&M! The only con I've found is that their clothes usually fit a little tall & skinny.

Fun atmosphere with great prices. Comparable to Old Navy in price level but better executed and more trends and options. Easy to find whatever it is you want or have an idea of - their selection is wide and you always walk out happy. Quality isn't great, but I'd rather spend little money on trendy clothing/accessories that aren't going to stay in style.

Took almost 3 weeks for a delivery!!! That has never happened at any other site I ordered from. I called and got some $ off of price, but that didn't not make up for not having gift on time for job X-mas party. I shop online for 98% of gifts. Glad they tried to make it right and I know S--- happens. BTW, I was on hold nearly 60 minutes to remedy the issue! That was also a first they need to address.

While I love the style and selection at this store, not to mention price, I am thoroughly disappointed that H&M does not offer product reviews on their website. I do not have an H&M in my city, so online is the only way I have access to that store. Reviews help me figure out if an item is worth buying. I don't like taking blind risks with my money. Anyone who has ever bought a dress online, only to find the stitching is off or the color does not match the picture online knows the struggle. Sure, I could send it back. But I shouldn't have to. Please H&M, add product reviews to your website. It would benefit you and your customers.

I Always buy clothes for my family at h&m, especially for my 4yr old daughter. I love h&M but I hope that cashiers will do their job a little faster coz they're really slow and a lot of customers are like having a bad day bcoz of it. I actually went to h&M at 59 columbus, told the lady cashier nicely "I'm sorry I'm kinda late alrdy", coz she was just so slow and talking with the other cashier and there's a long line. Then she told me that that's the fastest she can do (but she was really slow), then she was not being nice and arguing with me. Just really ruined my day

I love shopping at H&M because there is truly something for everyone, no matter your age. They have a wide selection of products for different types of men and women, and their wide range of sizes reflect that everyone is different. I love that I can go there with my teenage girls and find just as much to buy as they do. I also love the fact that they keep prices low, even though their clothes are a little bit higher end. My clothes I've bought there have been high quality, and have stood up to numerous washings.

Love the Concious sustainable clothing and I’m intended to keep purchasing it. But I hate getting tons of plastic with each and every order. Even a tiny baby T-shirt has its separate plastic bag! That actually makes this clothing not very sustainable. Why not just wrap the whole order in paper and put it in a box? So that you get only one box and one piece of paper for recycling. Some other stores do that.

i love H&M and would prefer to give it 5 stars but I can't. Why does it take them to deliver anything and everything i order online at least 10 business days to arrive to my house? Even during off season. I love the brand, clothes, style, i shop here besides the experience with online shopping/ordering. I mean sometimes i buy it with time in advance because there is an event and i find myself having to still buy something else because it NEVER arrives between 2-3 days. Please fix this and i'll give you 5 stars!

I have been a customer of H&M for many years. Recently, I ordered some items online using the mobile H&M app and my items were sent to my previous address even though my correct address was listed as my shipping address. So I’ve contacted H&M as soon as I realized this and there was pretty much nothing they could do for me other than out of me 20% off of my next order. Due to the items being on sale they were no longer available in my size to order. I asked if the items could be redirected and they assured me that there was nothing that they could do. I asked if they could contact in the warehouse with the items will be shipped to and to stop the return order and they assured me that there is nothing they could do. I asked if the items could be bought from another store and shipped to my home address and they informed me that was something they do not do. I even asked if there was anyway to alert me when the items were back in stock, again they stated that, that was something they did not offer. I just think in 2018 H&M should provide more ways for customer satisfaction especially since this was not my mistake. A simple I’m sorry isn’t good enough.

I’m not the greatest fan of H&M but I do think they have some of the cutest baby clothes out there. Their stuff is stylish and fairly inexpensive. I like that they have conscious clothing lines and they give you a discount for recycling clothes. Great job giving back and being environmentally aware.
