I am very unhappy with my service with Best Buy. I purchased an Insignia LCD HD TV in April 2007. Model 32 LCD-NS (discontinued model). I called for service, and it took 18 days for someone to come out to look at it. (that was the 1st appt available, fortunately I was available!) On Feb 28, The technician was here for a whole 4-6 mins, and informed me that he had to order a part, and that I would receive a call within 3 days to set up an appt to have them fix it. I had been without a TV for 3 weeks. I didn’t receive a call, but I received a email statement (bill) in an amt that exceeded the amt I paid for the TV. On March 2, I sent an email to customer service and never received a reply. After multiple calls to customer service, I asked to be connected to the consumer relations department., March 5. I spoke with Billy, and he said that this was wrong, and that he would get me a voucher for a new TV within the next 3 days. He apologized, and said that this should NOT have been overlooked by the Geek Squad, and that he (Billy) would fix the situation. He got a geek squad manager on the phone, Gary, to apologize. Again, they said that I would receive a call within 3 days to get a voucher for a new TV. I DID receive a voice message 4 days later, that said that the request that I submitted that the ‘unavailable part request’ was denied, and that I would have to wait for the part. I did not apply for an ‘unavailable part request. I applied to have a new TV because the amount they are charging to fix the TV exceeds the amount I paid for the TV. I have made at least 9 calls, and the only person who remotely acted in my behalf was Billy. However, his actions did not do ANYTHING for me. And no one is helping me. When I call the store, they say that they cannot help me and that I have to deal with 1-888-BESTBUY.
It is March 11, and STILL NO CALL.
Today I made another call to 1888bestbuy and was connected to 1800geeksquad. I spoke with Angela, who was VERY KIND. She said apologized and said that it is inexcusable that I have had to wait this long for a response and that I have been treated in this way. She said that I need to speak with a supervisor. I waited on hold for 8 mins…then Angela came back on the phone…not a supervisor…and said that I have been approved for a new TV. JUST LIKE THAT! NO one has EVER called me…to let me know. I was told that I did not need a voucher…just a confirmation number. She said that I now have to take this huge TV to the store…and take a new one home…I don’t know how to hook it up…etc. She said that they would NOT hook it up for me. I feel like they DO NOT care about their customers. I have a chronic illness, and it is NOT EASY for me to deal with all of this. They figure that people will eventually give up. My family has spent thousands and thousands of dollars on everything from appliances and computers to electronics and phones. NEVER AGAIN will anyone who knows me spend another DIME at Best Buy.
