High Pressure Sales Nonsense | Best Buy review from Cleveland, Tennessee
Went to buy a tablet for my wife as a gift. The sales person was adamant that I had to buy a high end Android tab. It was clear in the first 5 minutes he didn't know much about the technology but kept pushing a high-end model. Net; I finally find what I want and he fetches an already opened box. I tell him bring my a sealed box. He says sure. Comes back 10 minutes later with a different model and says this one's sealed and it's the same price. Only it's from another manufacturer and a different size screen. When I note that, he says, 'work with me here'. It had all the charm of an interaction with a used car salesman. Won't go back to best buy. Went home, found the device on Amazon for $57 cheaper. This dinosaur is already dead, it just doesn't notice yet. The only reason to go to the store is to get quality input on the purchaser decision.
Best Buy - Manager Review from San Antonio, Texas
This chain in the last 10 years has become very anti customer satisfaction! I went to local store here in San Antonio and was looking for TV power cord and found two 6 ft on a hanger priced at 4.99 both cords were 6 ft, get to register and I am charged 12.99 and I return immediately back to where I found the product on the shelf and took a photo of price as product. Tried to talk to employee in charge of dept., he was already dealing with another customer and was already having issues with the pricing in the register with the customer he was helping ... First clue about pricing at best buy . Found the manager and explain to him about the issue at hand with my receipt and the price on the shelf. His only comment was pretty much you are screwed. Sorry I can't help if my employees put the wrong product on the self. But, we can't help you. It may have been the wrong serial number on the product but yet the length on the cord is 6 ft and the label said 6 ft. I called customer and they only apologize for the issue and would just email their store personnel not to make the same mistake. I've had no call backs nor an apology from best buy! Won't be buying any product from here . I know amazon has a great policy on customer service and will do my business with them or find a company who exercise customer service
Best Buy Manager
Tried to buy a tv twice, left frustrated (and without the tv) both times. | Best Buy review from Vancouver, British Columbia
In the last 6 months, I have tried to buy a television from Best Buy, and both times I left extremely frustrated.The first time, 6 months ago, I went in to the Best Buy at Bay and Dundas in Toronto. I picked out a tv, approached a salesperson who didn't speak 3 words of english and asked him if he could sell me the tv for the ticket price including tax delivery and setup. The salesperson went to a store computer and after a few minutes said that he could. Great I thought. The salesperson started taking all my information, and when he got to the extended warranty, that's when the problem started. He asked me if I wanted the extended warranty. I said no. He said "look at all the money your saving". I said I don't need it because I was buying a much bigger version of the same Samsung model that I have had at home for 5 years without a single problem. He said something could still go wrong and I shouldnt take the chance. I said I wasn't spending $400 on a warranty for a $1000 television. Again, he came back at me with "look how much money your saving" At this point I was getting upset and thought to myself that if he tried one more time, that I was going to leave. He tried one more time and I turned around and left. The second time was 3 days ago when a television that I had been waiting to go on sale finally did go on sale. Everywhere in Toronto, at the same time. So I decided to give best buy a second chance, and get the tv there. So I go into the Bay&Dundas location, talk to this lady salesperson, and tell her that I am willing to buy this model for the ticket price, if I can get it for tax, delivery and setup included. She says ok and we go over to the tv dept. computer, and she starts filling out all the info. Along the way she asks me about warranty, something called wire surge protection, and a few other things. After an hour and a half of this and the computer program screwing up, she says that she has managed to get me the $1000 television for $737 and all kinds of bonus services and that the grand total is only $1486. i could not believe my ears! After telling her right off the bat that i was willing to pay the ticket price of a thousand bucks for the tv including tax, delivery and setup, she tells me that the total for the tv that I wanted and all the other extras I didn't was now $1486. AN HOUR AND A HALF. So I ended up just leaving. Best Buy does not sell tv's. They sell warrantys and wire surge protection, and things like that. They do not listen to the customer, and they would rather not sell you a tv if your nor getting all the other *** they sell with it

Files deleted | Best Buy review from Venice, Florida
Took computer in due to virus, and told them I MUST have a backup on everything (I run a charity). After the initial 72-hour timeframe I received a call that it was going to be an extra $99.99 to back up everything, and I agreed wholeheartedly. After another 24+ hours, received the computer back. ALL was wiped from the desktop, which wasn't the worst part. My DOCUMENTS folder was nearly EMPTY. A flimsy excuse was given that when they started to back up, the files were eliminated automatically! This is a devastating loss, and I'm beside myself. There is no way to re-create the files that were lost. Oh yes, they can sometimes send out and can sometimes retrieve lost files, but there is no guarantee, and the bill would be well upwards of $500. From a very unhappy FORMER customer in Nokomis, Florida, whose regular computer geek was on vacation. I'd happily have waited until he returned in light of the outcome! Charlene Inglis
Faulty electronics | Best Buy review from Brush, Colorado
on 5/29/14 i went to best buy #333 and bought a lg tone pro(hbs-750). on 6/12/14 while on vacation the left channel stoped working. i waited till i returned on 6/16/14 to take it back to the store. i was informed that it had a 15 day return policy and that i was out of luck. i paid a total of $74.19 for that lasted 15 days. I belive anyone would be upset. I was extra carefull with this unit and was very proud of it. The person that helped me when i came back in said i should have bought a service agreement. I do buy the service agreements but was never asked or offered. I belive this is bad business.

Took my item and won't return the charge. | Best Buy review from Houston, Texas
houston southware store #213. Today I bought a dvd recorder(open box), I took home, tested unit and won't work (dvd drive won'y eject). took back to Bestbuy 30 min later to return the item. Bestbuy claim that I broke the item, or the unit is not the right unit in the box and won't refund me. they also keep the item and told me not to come back again. I am filing to BBB, and other site to inform people not to buy from best buy and getting my credit card company to dispute the charge. I will not shop at best buy ever again.
