Geek Squad - Annual Contract

Posted: 2013-09-21 by    marheart
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
My request is uncomplicated and straight forward. I want confirmation that I paid $99.99 for the annual renewal of Geek Squad household computer protection program. And I want the paid for renewal contract.
After hours and hours on the phone being transferred and put on hold, and sending emails that were ignored, I was told that the computer system sends a confirmation of monies paid and the renewal contract three days after the order has been placed.
We never received any correspondence to verify the purchase or the contract.
At my determined request, the last CSR Jake,...

Geek Squad - California, Brentwood [Contra Costa County - Damaged my Computers & Bad Customer Service

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I took 2 computers in with virus complaints, a desktop and a laptop. Tech guy checked both and told me he was able to fix the virus/bug on my laptop immediately. The laptop virus was a background audio (radio station like)that keeps going on continuously. He advised that the desktop repair will take longer and recommended I purchase a 2 year tech support and I'll get up to 3 computers repaired for 2 years. I got home and found out that rather than repair the virus/bug on my laptop, the audio was somehow disabled. I took laptop back next day and they checked it in along with desktop already...

The Geek Squad (Best Buy) has had my Apple Laptop now for over a month...why? Originally the issue was that something was loose and moving around inside. This issue was repaired and returned to the store where I was told it was fixed and ready. When I went to pick it up somehow it came back from service with the LED Screen and Left side of Chassis case damaged(presumably from shipping) the attendant tried to cover it up by placing the Service order over the damage! I returned it not accepting the damage done to it. It was again sent out for service and came back with a new top case and display but,...

Geek Squad - Scam repairs of camera

Posted: 2012-05-17 by    Elisoo
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I purchased a fairly expensive camera from Best Buy a little over a year ago. I brought it into the Geek Squad for repair, where they charged me a diagnostc fee of $36 and sent it off. I didn’t hear back from them for a couple of months. I ended up calling the store to get the status of the repair. I was told by the “agent” that the camera was in Texas and could not be repaired because they didn’t have the part, but I could bring it to a private camera shop in the area for repair. When I went to pick my camera up, after it got back to the store, they refusef to give me my...

Geek Squad - Bad Service - Did Not Fix Problem

Posted: 2012-02-15 by    kjw3
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
We bought an Asus laptop from Best Buy in August 2011. In December, the screen developed a crack making it unreadable. (There was no drop or other abuse. You just have to press on the screen a bit to crack it. It is very very cheap.) Of course, this is not covered by the warranty. Geek Squad wants $85 up front, unrefundable, to look at it. Seven weeks later, they tell us to come and pick it up. We get there and they hand it back with a tag that says unrepairable. (And four gooey stickers on it that I had to scrape off with a razor blade!) After pitching a fit, they did refund the $85. But only after...

I purchased a new computer/printer/monitor and wanted all equipment set up correctly. I was assured by the Geek Squad technician "Hector" that the Geek Squad would come to my location and correctly set up all equipment. The Standard price was explained and agreed to, I was assured that the service tech. would come to my loaction between 9-11 A.M. on Tuesday March 29. I took off work this day so that I could let the tech person into my home/office to perform his service and pay for services performed. On Tuesday March 29 I never received a call or any other notification that the Geek Squad...

RIPOFF ALERT! What I was told when I bought Geek Squad coverage: "Bring it in, we'll diagnose it right away and get it back usually within a few days, depending on what is wrong."
What I was told when I called today asking about Geek Squad coverage: "Bring it in, we'll diagnose it right away and get it back usually within a few days, depending on what is wrong."
What REALLY happens AFTER Best Buy gets your money: You bring it in and are told by a Geek: We will look open in two weeks or more unless you give me $150.00 more just to expedite it, then we'll...

Geek Squad - California, Palm Springs - Horrible Delivery and Installation

I purchased three 60" TVs to be installed for my church. Paid cash for them and then paid the extra money for Geek Squad to professionally install my monitors with all the appropriate wiring. I waited two weeks after the promised installation date and upon delivery they installers gave me more excuses than solutions and at the end of the day they did not do ANYTHING but hang the televisions that we could have done ourselves.

Geek Squad - Bad service

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
My laptop stopped powering up, so I took it to the Geek Squad at Best Buy. They said they would send it out and it might take as long as 2 to 3 weeks to repair it and I'd get a call with a repair quote?. So, I had no choice but to buy a computer to use in the interim for my bookkeeping business, so I opted to upgrade my desktop computer'. A week, or so, later, I got a call from the Geek Squad, saying that the socket into which plug the power supply was damaged and that in order to replace it, they had to replace the entire motherboard because it is attached to the motherboard on my particular...

Geek Squad - California, Irvine - Bad Service / Mishandled Laptop & External Hard Drive

Posted: 2011-11-03 by    Kistaline
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I have two complaints about Geek Squad:
1. They mishandled and scuffed my external hard drive and laptop.
2. The guy that was supposed to be helping me insinuated I was lying about a laptop I no longer own.

Last week I brought my laptop, which was having power issues, to Geek Squad. They told me they needed to transfer files to my external hard drive (which cost me $100) in case they were lost during the repair. The guy helping me said after the data was transferred they would ship the computer for repair. They called me the following day to come pick up the external...

Geek Squad - Stay away

I took my laptop to geek squad to remove a virus and back up my data to an external hard drive. I asked the young girl at the counter if I needed to purchase a hard drive, but she told me not to worry and then wrote down that she could no see any problems. She also told me I should get my laptop back by the end of week or maybe up to 2 weeks.

After 2 1/2 weeks, I get a phone call asking if I would buy an external hard drive to make the data back up easier and they would use less disks. (Again, I asked for this at drop off). A week later, I got fed up with the wait and went to pick...

Geek Squad - No-show TWICE

Well, I have now had two scheduling snafus with Geek Squad. I live in Manhattan and had to call three different stores before I could get a Geek Squad person to schedule the initial appointment. The scheduler at the 5th Ave store was obviously not trained as she had to keep putting me on hold to ask someone else questions. After 20 minutes she scheduled my appointment. The day of the appointment arrived -- Geek Squad was a no-show and never called to inform me of anything. Afterwards, the store told me to call the 800 number, which I did. Rep on 800 number told me my appointment had been inadvertently...

Geek Squad - BAD customer Service

On November 12th, 2009 I brought my laptop to the Geek Squad @ Best Buy in Holmdel, NJ for repair. Today, December 13th, 2009 I still do not have my HP Pavilion laptop. I depend on this notebook to run my small business and this is a huge hardship for me. Geek Squad, obviously, is mismanaging its customer service. MY MAJOR COMPLAINT: No one at the store is being proactive, or showing the slightest bit of initiative in helping me get my laptop back, fixed.

I originally had a blue screen of death problem. (November 12th visit) They kept my computer for 10 days and returned it-- not...

I can't begin to express how awful my experience with Geek Squad by Best Buy has been. I hired them to remove a virus from my home computer. I should have known this would be a terrible experience when 10 minutes after the scheduled window of time, when I called to inquire about the exact time the associate would arrive, I was told "Sorry they called in sick, you'll need to reschedule". What?!?? They had no back up scheduled and I had already taken the morning off of work. They finally agreed to send someone to my home later in the evening, after much complaining on my part....

If you buy a prepaid plan from geek squad you get treated like garbage. They will leave you on hold for 30 minutes or more and never solve your problem. If you "chat" with them the minimum wait is 3 minutes between contacts, the maximum is god knows. If you utilize the pay site they CLEARLY have better agents on board but they still drag things out. Make friends with some real geeks, do not waste your time and money on this product....

I trusted the name Best Buy, I never had an experience with Geek squad though I felt it would be a good referral. I took my uncle's computer in to be repaired after the OS seemed to be corrupted and was not booting appropriately. I was told it would be 200.00 to do an assessment, repair, re-configure, install updates and drivers. I felt this was fair considering all that was included.

I later called to get the status of the computer and was told the OS was completely corrupt and the only option was a complete re-install of the OS. I was then told that a backup of the system was...

My ex purchased a laptop and an extended 3 year warranty. Never had to bring in my laptop until literally near the end of my 3 year warranty. One day my computer wouldn't turn on one day and pretty much every time after when I tried. I brought it in to the store to have it sent out to be fixed about a month until my warranty was up. My boyfriend would have fixed it but with a warranty what did I have to lose? They sent it out and i got it back 2 weeks later. It seemed to have been fixed but 8 hours after getting it back it wouldn't turn on again. So the day of my expiration on my warranty...

Geek Squad - Don't under any circumstances take your electronics to Geek Squad

Posted: 2011-08-12 by    Horlome
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, TAKE YOUR ELECTRONICS TO THE GEEK SQUAD! They haven’t the foggiest notion of what your problems are, much less how to fix them. When my $1200 HP suddenly died, I rushed it into the Geek Squad. After all, I purchased it from Best Buy (another story!). I have a lap top to use as a back up, so I wasn’t concerned about speed. A week later I was told that, basically, my machine was dead, that it had so many problems it simply could not be repaired. That sounded fishy to me, so I took it to someone who knows a bit more about computers than I do.

I was alerted that my black tie protection plan which is automatically deducted out of my checking account was being cancelled for non payment. Odd since two other plans through them come out of the same account each month. I called and reverified the bank info which had not changed and they said great all set. Now they tell me "your account is cancelled because you never made a payment". my bank says geek squad never initiated the request to be paid. But for the last year they had taken it out without a problem and then one month nothing. Again the other two accounts were coming out fine!!...
