I purchased an "open box" LG microwave oven in 2014 and was told that it was a floor model which explained the open box. Shortly after installation I had to call for repairs and the repairman that came to work on it informed me that it was a 2011 model! So I have...

Open box items are often considered close outs, returns, things that got stuck with. It's very common for things products, including appliances and electronics to be years old.

They are offered at a discount for being open box, so they are considered non refundable.

I never take a gamble with these items, because I don't have the money to throw away. The only time it's worth buying items that are open box, is if you buy a Square Trade warranty, they will cover everything regardless of the age of the item.

BESTBUY - IF YOU EXPECT SERVICE LOOK ELSEWHERE | Best Buy review from Burlington, New Jersey

2.0
Details
I purchased a Bosch dishwasher from the retail store. Delivery was scheduled for a few days out. It was later cancelled by the Best Buy delivery service because it was "damaged". I was then informed there were no other units of that model in stock. My wife consented to purchase an upgraded model since Thanksgiving was near and we were entertaining 20 guests. As promised, we were notified the night before delivery and provided with a five hour delivery window. Hallway through the scheduled delivery period I contacted the delivery company, after 20 minutes on hold, and was told it would arrive within 1 1/2 hours. Two hours later I called again and was on hold for 27 minutes. The Customer Service rep said she would check again with the drivers and 15 minutes later informed me that it was not on the truck and delivery would not occur. I asked the rep to determine if it would be delivered the next day. She said she would check and get back to me and I asked her she really intended to call back. She assured she would - and you guessed it - no call back. We went to Best Buy the following day to cancel the order and after an hour of working with the store rep they were not able to locate the unit or get through to the delivery service. We left the store stating we expected a cancellation that day, went to Sears, spent 15 minutes with the sales rep, bought the same dishwasher at a better price and it was delivered two days later.

Mistake in buying from Sears. Hope they didn't talk you into an extended warranty, etc. They are actually worse than BB.

The customer is invisible to the salespeople | Best Buy review from Monterey, California

1.0
Details
About 6:30 PM last night I went into the Best Buy in the mall off of Imjin Road in Marina, Ca. I had 4 things I wanted to check out and buy. (I was ready to spend over $1,000.00) I walked through the whole store into the 4 different departments where the items were. It's a large store. There were many sales people on the floor in their blue outfits. In EVERY case, whenever I saw a salesperson, they were talking with 1 or more of their coworkers and in 1 case there were at least 6 hanging out at a desk. I was invisible to them. NOT ONCE was I asked if I needed help in any way. They were all content with having a fine time hanging with their buddy coworkers. I'm thinking that Best Buy's new policy is for the customer to ask THEM for assistance. NOT ACCEPTABLE! I guess they don't care about selling their inventory, much less customer service. Well, There is the internet, Fry's and Costco where we can buy everything Best Buy carries. I seriously hope that store fails and has to close. I had to laugh when the Best Buy "greeter" at the door said "Thank You" to me as I was leaving.

All Best Buy store locations are this way that I've ever been to. I've not only been ignored by socializing employees, but when I ask for help, they pretend like I'm not there.

At Best Buy out of the box can mean returned, completely marked down to be clearance priced out, ancient technology, etc. I never buy out of the box at Best Buy, way too risky with them!

Best Buy Dont buy

I bought 4 big screen tvs for a new business. They were not installed until after a few weeks. 1 unit had *** in the screen which could not be seen until the unit was powered up and on. Screen is shot. I called Best Buy and they told me because it was after the 15 day period I was out of luck. Rudely told me to call Samsung. Very nice Guy at Samsung said it was a dealer issue. Im out $900. Remember this if you buy for Christmas. Very poor service. By the way, the complete protection plan does NOT cover any kind of damage including impact damage. Check it out carefully

I would also like to add that my son is not in foster care because my wife hurt him and I did not stop him. She is going through a hard time right now, her mother just recently died.

Her mother whom she lost contact with and got into a fight with. She was not invited to our wedding and my wife lost it and hurt our son, and a teacher saw the bruises and called social services, so none of this matters anymore.

I don't care about the refund. I just want my son back home and my family back to normal
