I called to inquire about a laptop, to see if they have any in stock. A lady answered and was very snippy, as if I was wasting her time. She told me she was going to transfer me, I let the phone ring for about 5-7 minutes. She picked up after the wait and said no one was going to answer, would I like to try to wait more? If no one was willing to help, why would I wait? Too bad for them, it was a $2000+ laptop. I'm going to Fry's electronic, same attitude, cheaper prices.

    Very sorry to hear this. I would like to ask more details so we can address the folks who made your experience less that desirable.
    Thank you in advance, Albert

    On 1/2/11 I purchased a ATI video card from the Micro Center store in Yonkers, NY. I was provide with the extra receipts to submit for a $20.00 rebate. The instructions on the receipt provided an offer code and directions to a web site ( On 1/22/11 I went to the website but found the code and video card not listed. I called the Yonkers store and, after stating the problem to 5 people, I was transferred 4 times and disconnected by the 5th person. I called the store back and asked to speak to a manager. I was put on hold and 42 minutes later I gave up waiting.
    The $20 rebate is not worth any more of my time. However, I will spend time talkin and blogging about my experience at the Micro Center

    Are you sure that the rebate was through Micro Center and not ATI? I've purchased a couple of ATI cards in the past and was directed to that same website you mention. Neither card was purchased through Micro Center (one was at Best Buy and the other was through

    I have never experienced worse customer service in any store anywhere. All I wanted to do was to purchase a computer on my Micro Center account. When I tried to check out using my account number which I had previously done last December, I was informed that it would not work without the card. That would be just fine if anyone I dealt with there was professional and courteous; but from the manager, Chris, on down I was treated like a criminal by people who have no business being in any sort of customer service position. When the manager, Chris, is so poor at dealing with customers it is no wonder that the rest of the people are unprofessional and incompetent when it comes to customer service as well. The Micro Center website has no way to complain directly to anybody who might care. Perhaps the whole company promotes poor customer service as well. Stay away from the worst company I have ever dealt with.

    The prices listed at micro center are wholly fake. They have "mail in rebates" to list prices well below the market price, but the catch is that they never mail you your money back.

    They never pick up their phone ever. I've been a customer for three years and been trying to get someone to pick up my call to inquire before driving for an hour to get there but I never got lucky. Just bad customer service, their phone system is there for nothing.
