When I purchased a computer recently from Best Buy, I used their 6 month-same as cash offer. I stated very plainly that I did not want any other maintenance agreements or additional coverage from their business. On my second bill, a $ 6.89 "debt cancellation" charge showed up. I called customer service to have it removed and they referred me to another toll free number stating they could not help me. This charge is wrong! I've heard about other issues such as this from Best Buy. I doubt I will ever purchase from them again.
After spending thousands of dollars at Best Buy over the past few years, we didn't think twice about...
I took my Mac G4 to Best Buy Geek Squad when I had a crash that shut me out completely. Paid $228 for them to reinstall my system software as well as first preforming a data backup.
Once the computer was returned the administrator password system wasn't working so I was unable to reload any other software essentially rendering my system unusable. I called the 800 number and asked if they would send a tech to my house to fix. Told I would have to take it back in to store if I wanted help.
After dragging it back in and spending an hour waiting the tech said he couldn't do any troubleshooting because they didn't have a Mac keyboard. I asked how they'd managed to reinstall my system software without a keyboard and they said one of the tech's brought his from home.
At this point it was clear they had little experience with Macintosh computers so I asked for a refund so I could take it to a real Mac tech to fix the password problem. They said since they did what I asked and installed the OS, they were not liable for my problem.
I've now called 6 different "supervisors/managers" local and corporate, all pretty hostile and unhelpful and clearly aiming to do anything to not refund my money. The fact is, they did something that has made it impossible to use my computer, can't troubleshoot it 'cause they don't even have a $20 Mac keyboard, and won't refund my money so I can pay someone else who knows what they're doing fix it.
Never ever take a repair to Best Buy, they do not stand behind their work.
I purchased a set of WSP150 speakers a while back, in 2005 at Best Buy. They have been sitting in a closet since then. I decided to open the box today and found that instead of speakers, I have 3 transmitters, 2 boxes of ac plugs and 2 sets of Owners Manuals. What can we do? I called your customer service and was advised to speak with the store manager. I spoke with a manager named Sean Medina at the Arlington Texas location where I purchased this and he said since this was purchased over 30 days ago, he could do nothing. Wow, I thought you all had great customer service until now. There is no way I would have the items I have unless an employee removed the original items from the box and this manager acted like he did not believe me. I have the original box! I trusted Best Buy in the fact that I bought this item from their store and expected that the picture on the box is what's inside of the box. It's not like I purchased it off the street or something, you should have a trusting relationship with a retailer, but that is now gone out the window with Best Buy!
All I wanted to do is an exchange or a gift card. I paid for these and all I have are the components...this really makes me angry and I will refuse to shop at your stores ever. I contacted RCA the manufacturer and they stated that this was done at the store level. I have spoken with 2 store managers, several customer service agents and people at their corporate office and they all state that without a receipt, they won't do anything. Most companies will at least do a store credit or replace the item with a like/similar item, but not Best Buy! I have reported this to the BBB in Texas and MN. and the attorney general office in Texas and I've printed the form and will mail it to the attorney general office in MN.
I will tell everyone I come in contact with about this experience with your company. There are several other electronic stores that I can spend my money with. I would like this to go to Mr. Brad Anderson-CEO and anyone else that can handle this problem. Wow, I am really disappointed in your company. The original packaging is still intact, but the boxes inside were switched out by someone within your company. How would I have these items other than at the date of purchase from your store???
Toshiba tech support told me to return my laptop (which had a factory defect) to their repair depot. I was informed that I could have 'GeekSquad' ship it to them for me.
I brought the laptop to the Geek squad and specifically requested they ship it to the address I provided. I was told that was no problem. I signed the release statement they gave me after crossing out the parts that pertained to payment and work.
They then shipped the laptop to "geek squad city" (not Toshiba) and attempted to make the repairs themselves. While working on it they caused addition case damage. They claimed the issue that was going to delay me getting my laptop back was a battery issue which was a lie.
After contacting 'Coral' at BB customer service I got the truth which was that they used a screw that was too long and muscled it thorough the top of the case. After more than a month I finally got the computer back with addition damage to the case that was not reported.
The "Geek Squad Toshiba repair specialist" had used a screwdriver to pry the part they broke, off of the machine which chipped and bent the bottom half of the case.
When I brought the additional damage to the attention of the stores general manager they called the police on me. While we were waiting for the police she kept taunting me trying to spark some kind of a physical altercation (which made me laugh at her and made her call into question my masculinity).
Mary (something or other) the General Manager of the Lafayette, IN store would be guilty of: Fraud, Theft, Transportation of stolen goods across state lines, and I'm sure 3 or 4 other things if she was an individual and not part of a cooperate entity.
According to the stance of BB, the service contract I signed gives them complete ownership of the computer for as long as they want, when in actuality the wording means they are authorized to do the "requested work" on the machine. Since I specifically requested that they NOT work on the machine and only mail it to the manufacturer I don't see what legal leg they are standing on.
Lesson learned: Don't ever set foot in a Best Buy for any reason.

I purchased a cover for my Ipod touch last month and tried to return it this week. I had the original receipt and the package was not open. I was 5 days over the 30 day return policy which I thought they would give me a store credit.
They did not. After seeing all the negative reviews on the web, I am glad that they only took me for a $27.00 purchase. I will not be buying anything from best buy again. I will stick with Amazon and Costco from now on.
I recently purchased a 40 inch Samsung Led tv from best buy, Upon setting up the new system, I encountered some minor problems during the inital setup. I visit the Saugus Store with the Tv manual and surround sound manual and spoke to several sales assoicates about the best way to resolve the setup problems I was encountering, Instead I was told that if I wanted to resolve my problems The store had a service that handled the installation and setup for a fee of hundred and ninety nine dollars for setting up a home theater surround system
I explained to them that I had everything working except for the surround sound and could they show me where I had crossed the connections.
The store manager told me that it I wanted to resolve my problems, I had to purchase there plan for a hundred and ninety nine dollars. I just spent 2, 000 dollars purchasing the product and you would think they would take a few minutes to try and assist in resolving a minor problem.
Instead I returned the product the next day and Best Buy just lost another customer and a sale. I repurchased the same product from another retailer and not only was I able to complete the setup without any problems, the sales associates took the time to answer any questions that I had
WHO NEEDS BEST BUY, THEY SHOULD HAVE GONE BANKRUPT INSTEAD OF CIRCUIT CITY
Don't ever get anything done by Best Buy in their mobile installation bay. These sorry blokes failed to simply place a seal in my firewall of my car to prevent water from rushing into my car and guess what happened. My car is flooded with over $3000 in water damage and my entire stereo system totaling over $7000 is totally ruined. A 10 cent grommet and some sealant would have saved me 10k worth of damage and the hassle of having to deal with their insurance company which is a nightmare. To put it simply DON'T EVER GO TO BEST BUY AND GET WORK DONE ON YOUR CAR!!

I contacted Best Buy on March 18, 2009 to report a problem with the Panasonic Plasma TV I purchased on January 17, 2008. A Geek Squad technician was dispatched to my house to diagnose the problem on March 21st. After a diagnosis, he determined that a major component had to be ordered and replaced. After two weeks and many failed inquiries on the status of the ordered part, the technician returned on April 3rd. He then informed me that another large component had to be replaced and that the repair can only be done at the service center. He also told me that someone from Best Buy will contact me to pick up the TV.
More than two weeks have passed since he told me that Best Buy will call me. My wait continues. In the mean time, I’ve contacted customer service numerous times and spoken to two different supervisors and a few Geek Squad agents. One of the supervisors agreed to submit a replacement request and assured me that I will be contacted with the decision. I am still waiting. Soon it’ll be a month since I first contacted Best Buy with this problem and more than a month without a working TV.
During this ordeal, while dealing with customer service, I’ve spent a lot of time being on hold and explaining my problem to every agent that was connected to me. Furthermore, because of the distance from work to home, I was forced to take a couple of hours from work to meet the technician on April 3rd.
Needless to say I'm frustrated and angry. I shelled out over $200 for the protection plan. If I had known it would be this difficult to get just a response from these folks, I would've never purchased the TV let alone the plan. It's truly amazing how coordinated the customer service group is in employing delay tactics to get rid of me. I WILL NEVER EVER VISIT A BEST BUY STORE AGAIN. I HOPE YOU REMEMBER MY ORDEAL THE NEXT TIME YOU CONSIDER GOING THERE. THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU.
I purchased about 600 dollars of merchandise from Best Buy at 18 months interest free. I attempted to pay my...
My complaint is that these guys are the real deal when it comes to rip-offs. First of all I am a frequent customer that is fed up with Best Buy. Yesterday I bought a Gps Unit that cost $160.00 witch was an awesome buy. When I took it home and tried it out it didn't have the features that I wanted in it, so I brought it back to the store. Yeah I should, ve done more research, but I am human and sometimes research is not necessary.
All that I wanted was an upgrade or an even exchange for a Gps that was $50 more than what I had paid. The cashier in customer service quoted if I got an upgrade or an even exchange it would be a 15% restock charge which is pretty much ridiculous compared to a $0 Wal-Mart return. I immediately asked for a manager. He could not help. I quoted, It hasn't been 24hrs yet since the purchase. He said that he doesn't make the rules.
So I said you mean to tell me that you are going to charge me $24 plus the $50 for the upgrade on the new one therefore robbing me of my dollars and cents. He said that he was sorry and I can file a complaint at bestbuy.com. Best Buy sucks when it comes to Return Policies. Watch What You Buy! No one wants to be suckered by ridiculous restock charges. Read the fine print on all Receipts.
I was with my husband in bb. I stepped away for a moment to pick out a movie and he went to play video game...
I opened a Best Buy 18-month same as cash account in 02/2007 and made a purchase of a Bose System for my husband that was around $1000 plus tax. I made payment over the monthly amount each month and made another purchase later on this same account. I kept paying over the minimum payment each month and when the balance came due for the initial Bose purchased, I paid what appeared to be the balance due on that account. Because I pay my bills electronically, I failed to keep that specific bill to prove that specific balance and due date. This I have come to deeply regret.
When reviewing a later bill I noticed my balance had increased substantially and noticed that I had been charged all the deferred interest from this payment. When I called Retail Services, I was told that I did not in fact pay the balance in full on time and that was the reason for the charge. When I questioned the Customer Service person, who of course is in India, she repeated the same info over and over. I then requested a detailed printout of my billing statement and how all payments and charges were applied since the opening of my account. After placing me on hold multiple times she stated that they could only go back 6 months on the billing. When I pushed a little further she put me on hold again and then stated that I would receive my request shortly in the mail. I have never received this and it has been 4-5 months.
To avoid this again, I called Retail Services again when noticing another same as cash account was coming due on 05/24/2009 and the balance was $293.47. I called to assure myself that if I sent the balance in full or sent an extra payment (over the required min. payment) it, $85 was alotted to the regular balance and $15.00 to the same as cash account that was expiring 05/24/2009. How convenient! They chose to apply not to the one where I will soon be charged $50 finance charges, but to the regular revolving account. That is exactly what I believe happened to the payment I sent to pay off the last SAME AS CASH account back in 2008. If I had not called to request them to change the way the payment was applied, I may have been subject to this deception as before. I requested again tomight that a financial statement be supplied to me to show how these payments were applied each month and once again was told to just look at the billing each month to see the balance. This is ridulous. I will continue to call after each payment is made to assure that it is applied properly until this account is paid in full.
I have learned my lesson and once this account is paid in full, I will never deal with company or even Best Buy again. I believe this is fraudulent behavior and should be prosecuted and will pursue a possible class action suit against both Retail Services and Best Buy.
I needed a gift as soon as possible so I decided to purchase online the new MSi mini laptop, that I really...
I purchased a Pioneer 5020 TV from Best Buy online. Along with this purchase and incentive was being offered to get a $100 value towards Geek Squad setup. I considered this to be a $100 value. Well, after having my appointment with Geek Squad cancelled twice by the company I complained to customer relations. I was told that my request to receive a credit of $100 toward my purchase (since I had not received the value offered to me) would be reviewed and I would receive an email regarding this in 5-10 days. I never received an email. I tried again with Geek Squad - they finally show up to my house and then I am told that the service I chose did not cover what I wanted done (I specifically asked someone in Geek Squad customer relations if I had purchased the correct set up and was told yes). I called customer relations again and was told that my first request had been reviewed and denied (of course I was never emailed this information from Best Buy).
For a purchase that was supposed to be an exciting thing, Best Buy has turned it into a terrible experience. I never plan on purchasing from Best Buy again - hoepfully this isn't how all customers will now be treated with Best Buy's major competitor leaving the market. I will do my best to purchase online from other places from now on. And believe me I was not a customer Best Buy wanted to lose.
I had purchased a LCD HDTV with accessories in May of 2008. Along with the purchase, I was coerced into buying a $250.00 home theater calibration. I was told at the time that the picture quality and monitor life would be improved. I was also told that I would be contacted by phone to set up an appointment at my residence for the service at a date convenient to my schedule but that the call may take 6 to 8 weeks. After two months, I received a cryptic voice mail message that was completely cut off except for "...eek Squad. Have a great day." Little did I know at the time, but this was an automated call to inform me a technician was automatically scheduled to show up at my house for the calibration. I found out about this when I received a call a few days later from a very angry person stating he was at my residence for the calibration and where was I. After three more "automated" attempts at mis-scheduling, I cancelled the service in November 2008. By the way, Best Buy policy is not to allow customers to choose their schedule; it is chosen for them. I was told at the time that my account would be credited back to my bank. My mistake was I forgot about the "supposed" credit until January when I was preparing receipt for my taxes and came across the Best Buy receipt. Just in case, I reviewed all of my bank statements since November; no credit. On Monday, February 2, 2009, I called the Geek Squad number I had been given on the 3 voice mails earlier last year. After verifying that my service had indeed been cancelled, the representative told me I could go in to any Best Buy store to obtain an immediate credit back to my card. I was not informed the reason why my account had not been credited back in November. On Tuesday, February 3, I went into the Pleasant Hill, CA store closest to my work. The main customer service desk was reluctant to handle my request as "This is a Magnolia service. I might screw it up." So I went back to the Magnolia service counter and requested the refund from a blue-shirted sales associate. He quickly excused himself to talk to his manager close by in my sight. The manager reviewed the receipt and gave direction to the associate who returned back to the counter. "What exactly was the issue with the calibration?" I explained the issue and stated a refund was non-negotiable. The associate replied, "I would be more than happy to help you, but as this item is inventoried, you will have to request the refund from the original place of purchase." I then asked to speak to the manager he had just spoken with. The manager (Magnolia Service Manager) informed me that he would be happy to send an e-mail request to the service manager at the Brentwood, CA store. I asked that my cell phone number and e-mail be put in the request so that I would be contacted with a transaction number and authorization code when the refund was processed. Friday, February 6; I have not received any credit back to my account. I call the Brentwood store and ask to speak to the service manager, Jeff. He is off. I ask to speak to the store manager, Marlon, who is also off. The manager on duty, Devon apologetically handles my request. I ask for the district, regional, and divisional manager's contact information to file a formal complaint at this point. Devon tells me that he cannot give out this information. I ask how the chain of command works for complaint procedures and he tells me to call 1-800-BEST-BUY. Monday, February 9, 2009 and I still have not received a credit back to my account. I call the 800 number and after being on hold for five minutes am railroaded back to Geek Squad Installation Services which by this time will be of absolutely no help to me. After five more minutes, I ask the GS rep to route me back to corporate. After being on hold for another seven minutes, I asked to speak to the highest level available to register my complaint. Okay, now on hold for sixteen minutes, finally Brendon picks up and takes every word of my complaint calmly and professionally. Suspiciously, I ask that a district manager be in contact with me in the next couple of days so I may hear the resolution of this catastrophe of customer service. Once again, I was told that this was not Best Buy's policy but that the district manager and a "group" at the corporate office would definitely be reviewing my complaint. I am definitely sure this will not happen. I am however, definitely sure I will never shop at Best Buy again and will go out of my way to tell my story to everyone who will listen.
My 5-month old HP laptop ceased functioning so I returned it to the Middletown, RI Best Buy. I was told by the Geek Squad that it had a bad motherboard and had to be mailed back to HP for repair as part of the manufacturer warranty. I was called a week later by the Middletown Best Buy Geeks and told that they found the problem and had a quote for how much it would cost to repair. I told the Geek that it was under warranty and was supposed to be mailed to HP. I was told that the Geeks had no record of this. I asked to speak to a manager. I never did. Two weeks later I was called by Best Buy and told that my laptop was repaired. Upon picking up my laptop I was told that it had been tested by the Geeks and that it worked just like new. I tested it myself and it still was non-functioning! I was clearly lied to by the Geek Squad. I asked to speak to the manager. I was told there wasn't one available. I asked that a manager call me. They never did. I still have no idea what is happening with my laptop. The Middletown, RI Best Buy is a disaster and should be avoided at all costs!
