Customer DISS Service and Online ordering | Best Buy review from Cherry Valley, Massachusetts
Here is an email that I recently sent to Best Buy addressing my horrific experience. I feel this explains what I went through best. Recently I have decided to make my first online purchase from your store taking advantage of your cyber Monday deals for my Christmas shopping. Not only was I disappointed with your company, I was also deeply offended with the treatment that I received by two of your representatives one of those being a supervisor. I placed my order on 12/1/13, it was to arrive at the store for pick up on 12/12/13. I kept track of my order during that time and saw afew days after my online purchase on your order page it said that my payment had processed and that items have shipped. I also checked my accounts and saw that I was indeed charged for said items. On the 12th I had expected to receive and email confirming that my items were ready to be picked up at the store but to my surprise that didn't happen. I called the store to see if they were there and they looked it up and told me that it should be in the following day. I waited and the next day I checked my order online and again it said it was being shipped and not ready for pick up. On the 14th I received an email around 1:00amstating that there was a problem with billing and that I had to contact customer service to correct the issue. I immediately did so. My first attempt to call I spoke to a woman that was to transfer me to a representative that could assist me with my problem and after being on hold and waiting for about 15 minutes your system disconnected my call. I called back again right after and this time spoke to a man who at my request transferred me over to his supervisor. Before speaking with management the representative informed me that my account had been credited several times because the item had not yet shipped and it's not policy for best buy to actually collect until items are shipped. My item was not shipped out of California until the 12th, the day they were supposed to be ready for pick up in my local store. He also said my order would be cancelled if I did not provide my account information to be billed. I asked if it were possible for me to wait until the 17th when the items arrived to the store, if I would be able to pay cash there for my products. He said he wasn't authorized to do that so I asked to speak to someone who was. When he transferred me to his supervisor the woman was extremely rude, unprofessional and her treatment towards me was unacceptable. She would not let me speak, she spoke over me and yelled telling me to go to the store and speak to a manager that she did not care if my order was canceled or not. Then she hung up on me. Completely frustrated and in an attempt to find out who I was speaking to I called back again for the 3rd time. Once I was connected to a representative I asked to speak to another supervisor and was not transferred. I asked if they kept notes or reference numbers on calls and she said yes but there was nothing documented and no way to know who it was that I spoke to. She also informed me that what had happened was that I was billed on the 2nd but my item had not shipped so the money was then returned to my account. Then again on the 8th and again on the 12th. She said that my problem was my bank, because they did not allow for me to be billed because the item had not been shipped. From my experience with this matter the only problem that I see is that in an attempt to compete with different stores online Best Buy offers great deals without the capability to complete and process orders when told. As a consumer, when I check the status of my orders and see that it says my payment was processed and my item was shipping I expect it to mean just that. I find it astonishing that a company as big as yours would be so irresponsible and unprofessional towards its consumers. I trusted the name Best Buy when I did my online shopping. A mistake I will never make again. This discrepancy on your facilities behalf has caused me a great deal of stress and frustration. I was willing to come to a compromise and still give you my business but I was not comfortable giving out my account information again after that. I didn't see the harm in paying in cash at the store when my product arrived. I was never looking to get something for nothing and I should of never been treated that way by a representative from your company. As a consumer I feel it is my due diligence to forewarn other potential Best Buy consumers of my experience. I will also forward and attach this email to my local tv news and newspaper along with blogs and consumer complaint forums. This is a matter that should be rectified as soon as possible if not for me but for other costumers sake.

Customer service | Best Buy review from Louisville, Kentucky
Purchased laptop from best buy online and was not working right so took it in the store and was going to get another one. They had none so I told cashier I would just keep the item and not listening to what I said she returned item anyway.

Geek Squad Protection doesn't work | Best Buy review from Beaumont, California
I bought a cell phone galaxy and bought the protection plans. I had trouble with the phone freezing and was able to return the phone 2 times without hesitation or questions. Last month my phone froze so I took it in to get it sent out. And the guy at the counter said he had to trouble shoot it before he can send it out. He then told me that the phone is working fine and if he can't see anything wrong with it he can't send it out. I asked then why do I pay 9.99 a month? He said if I send it out and there's nothing wrong you have to pay 150.00. I then asked him so you the associate have to see something wrong with the phone and not take the customers word how is that fair if I'm paying for the insurance? In frustrated that my phone didn't get sent out and I feel like I've paid this 9.99 a month for nothing. I don't plan on buying another phone from Best Buy and I glad I didn't but the protection plan for the carpet cleaner I just bought.
Online ordering | Best Buy review from Toms River, New Jersey
2 strikes their out. First a couple years ago I ordered an item online to pick up in store. Paid and received confirmation and then next morning received a cancellation notice. I was told that the order must have come in after hours and was automatically cancelled when they turned their machines on in the morning?????? Went to game stop and walked up to counter and bought item. Second- figured I would give it another try since I didn't need it as soon as the first time (which both were for Christmas) and it has been a couple years. I placed my order and checked progress online and a week later it finally said SHIPPED and gave UPS tracking number. So I check UPS and it says label printed but store has not given item to UPS. I check it daily and another week went by with same info. So I call the 1-888 number and get transferred for 5 min and then the person picked up and hung up. Wouldn't be so bad but they charged my account and it says item cannot be cancelled. So I had to buy the item at a store other than best buy(not the best) and wait to see if it ever arrives so I can send it back since I don't need it anymore. It's like someone telling you they will meet you some place and then they never show up or call and you don't hear from them again ????????
I Wish I Had Ordered From Walmart! | Best Buy review
I ordered an LG blu-ray player and an HDMI cable from Best Buy.com on Dec 3rd for delivery to my home, ordered at the same time on the same invoice. Payed with PayPal, so it was payed immediately. The blu-ray player was finally shipped out at 5:30 on Dec 10th. Seriously? 7 days? And it's going to the post office, not to my home. Today I found out that the cable is being shipped separately, and it has not yet been picked up by UPS. 8 days (and still counting) for a cable?????? I can't use the blu-ray without the cable! I am so regretting that I didn't order thru Walmart! I placed an order thru them late at night on Dec 8 and it was shipped out the following morning. I've learned my lesson.
Wouldn't honor posted price on item | Best Buy review
I was at Best Buy today and had a wireless mouse and a laptop sleeve in hand. At the register i noticed the laptop sleeve which was advertised in store for $9.99 rang up $14.99. Don't get me wrong that isn't a huge amount but it's the principal. I walked with the cashier to the rack and they had all colors on the same peg. Yes the tag said $9.99 but it said pink after the description of the sleeve. I talked to a represenative in the department and he said it was pink ones only that were that price. I asked the rep why were there other colors on the same peg then isn't that false advertising? The rep said sorry it says pink so they won't honor that price for any other color. Hence i put down the items i had in hand and told them that is false advertising and they lost my business indefinately!

Online purchase compromised my debit card | Best Buy review from Orlando, Florida
On December 2, I bought a TV online and picked it up at a local store on December 3. The store was very undermanned and I waited 20 minutes for someone to help me with my pick-up even though I was the only one there for pick-up. That was just the beginning of my nightmare. A few days later (December 8), I noticed that not only was my purchase of $641 deducted from my account but also an additional $1,377.99. I called my bank and was told that because I reported that I didn't authorize it, they would have to cancel my card and I would get a new one in 7 to 10 days. Right in the middle of my Christmas shopping! I called Best Buy on December 8 (Sunday) and was told that someone would call me back within a day or two. In the meantime, my bank added $108 in overdraft fees to my account. On December 11, not hearing anything from Best Buy, I called and was told by a woman that she would patch me in to a supervisor that could help me solve my problem today. Instead, I got someone’s voice mail (no name given). I left a message to call me back. That was three hours ago and no one has called. Totally unacceptable.
