I had best buy at my home several times either they did not have the new machine I bought or would not take the one to be returned . This started in November 2021 and in Jan 2022 I finally got the new machine and the other one removed. I still have no credit for the other machine. Original machine was returned as it was leaking after one month.

Best Buy - YOUR incompetent employees

Best buy is a store FULL of TOTALLY INCOMPETENT UNEDUCATED employees!

I am very ANGRY I bought my MacBook Air from this CRAP store! I have gone in many times to get help concerning different things to do with my new Mac. BUT! HELP? NOOO DAMN WAY! I don't know if it is THIS generation of people that are SOO incompetent and lazy, or if THIS is the kind of people best buy looks to hire. EVEN the store manager IS A FREAKEN IDIOT!

This store is in Kennewick Washington. I WILL NEVER EVER purchase another damn thing from this company!

NOT ONLY are they incompetent but they are ALSO extremely RUDE! NO MANNERS what so ever! AND IT STARTS FROM THE TOP DOWN!

PITIFUL!

Best Buy - Microwave oven with mounting kit, never installed since December 2021

1. Own ordered December 2021

2. Delivered January 2022n with the incorrect trim kit.

3. The installer returned the incorrect trim kit.

4. Three installations scheduled, but installers failed to bring the Trim kit.

5. After many conversations and escalations an installation was scheduled today, but installers arrived without the trim kit, again.

6. This is the fault of your scheduling team.

7. The installers will endeavor to assist me to get it right the next time.

Your customer service team remains the worse I've encountered, and we still did not install the appliance.

Best Buy - Geek Squad Service

I dropped off my iPad for repair on 05/02/22 as instructed to do by apple support. The geek squad representative assessed my device and stated it was good to go as there was no physical damage it just did not power on.

On 05/13/22 I went to pick up my iPad and was extremely disappointed as it was returned to me damaged. It was bent, the screen was uplifted and would not close properly to the seal with adhesive coming from the inside out.

There was a note with my iPad from "Apple" stating they could not work on my iPad because of the physical damage that was not there when I dropped it off with geek squad.

on 05/13/22 Mike from geek squad assured me he would get this issue squared away as soon as possible. He stated he contacted apple support to escalate the matter and it would take 24-48 hours to hear back.

I followed up with Mike on 05/15/22 at the store who directed me to his GSM Jada. Jada stated that apple had a system shut down on Saturday 05/14 so to give it another day to allow them the proper 24-48 hours. She gave me her cell phone number along with this email address for the store.

I followed up as requested by email several times with no response. I then called Jada directly and she stated she still had not heard anything but that she did re-escalate my issue and that if that does not work, she would need to make a call to someone else.

On yesterday 05/17/22 I emailed the best buy email provided and attempted to call and text Jada directly but she did not answer.

Today is 05/18/22 and I have not heard from anyone concerning my matter and what needs to be done to replace my iPad as it was damaged in the care of best buy geek squad. I received an email from a Mr. Oyler at 09:15 am stating Jada will be at work today and will give me a call once she arrives but still has not called me.

Best Buy has made this extremely inconvenient and refuses to care for their customers.

Desired outcome: I would like a new iPad that is not damaged.

Best Buy - your service

I have been doing business with Best Buy for many years. I purchased a service policy with them. My new laptop went on the blink and I tried to get someone at the store I purchased it at and they do not let you talk to anyone at the store. They sent me to some other country and the people do not talk English. They wiped out 20 years of pictures and every single file I had on it. I had to go back to the store and the guy I have always dealt with told me this happens all the time. He said he did not know if he could get my files back. He said this happens all the time. I tried calling the corporate office and guess what? They sent me to another country and they do not talk ENGLISH.

I'm sorry to hear of your frustrations.

I always recommend keeping a backup of anything you consider important. You can do so either on site or away but it's something you really want to develop the habit of.

Best Buy - Refrigerator

I bought this product from Best Buy less than 2 years ago.

LG - STUDIO InstaView Door-in-Door 23.5 Cu. Ft. French Door Counter-Depth Refrigerator with Water and Ice Dispenser - Stainless steel

Model:LSFXC2496S

SKU:5948523

$2,879.99

The compressor just failed and Best Buy claims no responsibility for selling faulty merchandise. About $800.00 for repair and that does not include lost food.

I will not shop at Best Buy again.

Desired outcome: Stand behind your products.

Hi Allan.

I'd like to gladly assist.

I absolutely love the Studio line of products. They're very well rated — for a reason.

If you're less then two years, your repair should be covered. Call [protected] and you should be very well taken care of.

Best Buy - Installation date was ignored, no call no show. Rescheduled and again no call no show.

Best Buy is the worst company I have ever dealt with. I purchased an Exhaust Hood for above my Stove. I payed extra for Delivery and Installation. I picked a Time and Date to fit my work schedule, but had to take a half a day Vacation for it. My time was set for between Noon and 8PM. The day before I received a Voicemail telling me that my time had changed and they will deliver now around 10AM.

I called them back which in itself is a total pain to reach a person. I made clear that the appointment I made 3 weeks prior had to be just that. They agreed and my appointment stayed the same as originally scheduled.

I was then reminded twice with a phone call, once by e mail and once by text about my upcoming appointment the next day.

The delivery was done by a third party and they arrived about 2:30 PM and they were super nice and polite.

So now I have this huge Box sitting in my Kitchen and was waiting for the Installers, while I had my Electrician pretty much on standby.

As it got closer to 7PM I was a little worried but since they gave me a timeframe up to 8PM I thought I just give it a little more time.

Well 8PM rolled around and nobody showed up or called or texted me about the missed appointment, although the day before they were getting crazy with the reminders about that appointment.

So I had to do the miserable task calling them to find out what had happened.

The person I reached was actually nice, looked up my account and noticed that there was no show no call. He made a note of that into my account Info.

He told me I had to set a new date for Installation and that was a week away. I was obviously upset. Now it would be a month after purchasing the hood to finally get it installed and I had to take another half a day Vacation for it because it was again between Noon and 8PM.

The day before my second appointment nobody contacted me with any reminders, which I thought was odd.

I had a really bad feeling and sure enough nobody called or showed up for my second appointment. I did not even have the nerve to call them again since that is such a pain in my behind and chances are I will get someone on the phone which does hardly speak English or doesn't Comprehend what I am trying to say. I had that happened while trying to communicate with them.

I am over Best Buy and learned my lesson never to Purchase anything there again. Good thing we have options.

The only bad thing is that I still have that huge Box sitting around with my delivered Hood inside. I had to move it into my Bedroom out of the main traffic in the Kitchen.

Now I have to hire someone to install it for me and 5 weeks went by since my purchase.

Desired outcome: I want my fee I paid for delivery and Installation refunded. Or subtract the Delivery and pay me for the non Installation.An apology would not make it any better because the culture of your Company needs a big time over haul.

Best Buy - Whirlpool refrigerator model wrs555sih200

Bought the refrigerator at the Glendora California store. Have had four service calls to repair and/or replace ice-maker, and the service department was unable to repair, so now I am waiting 16 more weeks for a replacement door to be made at an off-site manufacturer. I bought the extended service warrantee, and that appears to be a worthless written excuse to pass the buck. I have called a total of seven different phone numbers trying to resolve this, even tried the corporate office in Richfield, MN to no avail. I don't know if Whirlpool makes faulty appliances, or if Best Buy service is inept, but both are at fault here.

Desired outcome: Per the Song-Beverly Act (Lemon Law) I am seeking a replacement refrigerator.

Hi Victoria.

Appreciate hearing your concerns.

The Song-Beverly Act pertains to new merchandise and not products during an extended warranty period.

Admittedly, these are unprecedented times. Many manufacturers are dealing with part availability. Stay on top of the process. The part is coming.

Whirlpool purposely makes inferior quality parts to fail, and then doesn't provide adequate warranty service. Completely unacceptable.

Then shills like Mr. Helpful blame the consumer, supply chain issues, and everything except where the problem lies. Given his past nonsensical replies I'm surprised that he didn't blame your ice maker issues on the fact that you let it get wet by supplying water to it.

Best Buy - Delivery thermador appliances

Back in October 2021, I purchased the Thermador kitchen Appliances from Best Buy. As of today (March 2022) I still did not receive my appliances. I am constantly getting the e-mails from Best Buy to schedule the delivery date, however their calendar is not available, it's totally blank. The customer service is not able to provide any details on my order. The Sales person, who sold me the appliances said that all my appliances received in the warehouse. I do not know, how it can help me, if I cannot schedule the delivery date to get my appliances.

I AM FEELING THAT I WAS RUBBED BY BEST BUY FOR ALMOST $28,000.00, PLEASE HELP.

I will provide any additional information including order# if needed.

Hi Ms Olshanskaya.

There shouldn't be a problem in any way. Contact your original sales associate again and have him/her schedule the delivery.

Best Buy - Horrible customer service-new home theater receiver-product compatibility and installation

3-15-22

I spent $400.00 on a Sony Home Theater receiver at Best Buy. We own a Sony Bravia TV, a Sony Blu Ray and Surround Sound system from Best Buy. Was simply trying to confirm the compatibility of the new receiver to the existing items. I've invested 4-5 hrs with Best Buy reps including a snotty Geek Squad tech who came to the house. Got absolutely nowhere. I found what I need to hook up the receiver and had to get new speakers from Amazon. It took me 15 minutes on Amazon to get what I needed. I paid my annual fee for their Total Tech Support of $200.00. Best Buy has nothing but incompetent people at all levels. Left a VM for the local store manager to call me-nothing. My next action will be to file a complaint with the Col Dept of Consumer Affairs/Attorney General's Office for Deceptive Trade Practices. Hold my beer.

Desired outcome: The Company needs to be out of business.

Best Buy - Laptop repair

My son brought in his laptop because it would not power up. Best Buy didn't even have a battery to test it with or even one available to buy! He missed 3 weeks of college courses because we had to dig up the battery ourselves! Why would you have a repair department if you're not going to have a simple battery available to test with. It's like having to bring your own oil filter to an oil changing shop! Ridiculous!
