Best Buy Customer Service is horrible
On Nov 23, 2010 I bought a point and shoot camera online with an incentive of an 8" x 8" Shutterfly.com book. Received the camera on Nov 30th - love it and have already paid for it BUT did not receive the code for the free book. Between Nov 30th and today (Dec 16th) I made 8 calls to Best Buy and got cut off 4 times - once after being on the line with them for 30 minutes and not resolved. Called again today 3 more times and when I got someone - after waiting and waiting - I threatened to contact the CEO if I didn't get this resolved this afternoon. I finally got the code. While the reps were nice they have issues with cutting customers off and not resolving your problem. Unfortunately I will be getting Best Buy gift cards for Christmas this year - but NEVER again. Their customer service stinks and I spent a ton of time on the phone to get what should have been sent to me in the first place according to the offer. Believe the bad reviews. They're true.
I am a true believer in the Santa spirit for Christmas. I think Best Buy commercials are awful this year. How dare they put these commercials on the air. They are ruining the Christmas spirit and making Santa look like an awful person. What was Best Buy thinking...
Best buy return policy
I bought a $50 item from best (worst) buy today and when I got home, the item which is an adapter, did not work. I went back to return it and was shocked by the return policy. Although I paid cash and have my receipt, I had to show my ID. Unknown to me, on the receipt there is a statement saying all returns require ID. I complained to the store manager who only advised me to complain to corporate. Personally, would not buy anything from this store ever. Stores like this do not deserve our business. Boycott this store
BestBuy Worst customer Service (Tracy, CA) | Best Buy review from Stockton, California
Worst customer service I have witness in long time. Had delivery schedule for yesterday between 5 -7 , but couldn't deliver because their truck broke down. When called today hoping they will deliver today, customer service rep at the delivery location told the SYSTEM automatically reschedule for next available (which is 5 days from today). When asked if they can find an early appointment, rep informed me they don't have any truck available to deliver. Rep hung up, saying I could cancel the order at the store, if I want to. Thank you Best Buy. Didn't know, you were doing me a favor for giving you my business.
Lied to by phone sales rep | Best Buy review from Alpharetta, Georgia
After waiting 45 minutes on hold for a customer sales rep someone answers the phone but no one answers the phone. After another 6 minutes that person hangs up out of nowhere. Another 45 minutes later and the customer service rep has less information than I do on the Asus Transformer Prime tablet and dock. My status says the release date to be this Sunday, but the person on the phone says both items are still listed as "coming soon". The initial sales person on 11/29 said this item should "definitely arrive before Christmas" and as I am bringing this as a gift for someone and am flying Dec. 23rd, thought this item would make it on its way before then. I received an email today that says "If the product is a holiday gift and you would like to discuss other ways to get your item(s) sooner, please call us at 1-888-BEST BUY (1-888-237-8289) and we will gladly assist you. Please have your order number ready. " Yet the lady said she can't help me. I requested if a manager could assist with this situation as I've cancelled my preorder at other competitors, and got put on hold for another 25 minutes. After wasting 2 hours of my time and being deceived by the sales rep initially on the phone, I can guaruntee that I will not be purchasing from Best Buy in the future and would caution others per this experience.
I had purchased a Samsung LCD about an year ago on boxing day 2010 at a BestBuy store in Ottawa. I had also purchased an extended warranty for 3 years. Its not even been an year and i tried to call bestbuy customer service about my TV as i was having a problem with my...

Scrooge | Best Buy review from Rochester, New York
I think the advertising campaign against Santa is despicable. I will not shop at Best Buy again due to this advertisement. They should be ashamed! If this is the only way that they can sell their inventory they need to rethink their stategy. Have they forgotten how many children watch TV and see these ads? What has happened to the "Christmas Spirit"??? Must have been forgotten along the way! I am glad that no other advertisements have gone in this direction.....Perhaps a statement can be made by purchasing your items elsewhere?? I plan on searching for same items in other stores.
Hooks you in with a credit card discount | Best Buy review from Mission Viejo, California
Best Buy was the closest place for me to buy the camera I wanted. The sales guy was nice. But the price wasn't great. He said if you get one of our credit cards you can either have no payments for 6 months or 4% back. Of course I took the 4% to bring the price down. He rang it all up, [after spending time with info etc., I'm thinking what a PIA why?? ;). The receipt shows the 4% is not there. AFTER I purchase it, then he says, well you have to pay the camera off in 30 days to get the 4%. I was right, what a PIA. OK, so 29 days later I go in pay it off, and ask wheres my 4%, and the gal says I have no idea, you need to log on on your pc and do that. Talk about a rip off, having never been told this either! To top it off, the credit card billed me for an extra $25 because the payment was submitted a day later!!! No more Best Buy for me!
BEST BUY 424 bullied me into geek squad services
I was shopping the other day at Best Buy in Gainesville, FL Store 424. I dont know a whole lot about computers but I know that if a computer is already opened they should not be able to sell it as new let alone charge 100 dollars more for geek squad tech support package deal. My associate a guy named Rob found the computer that I liked. Apparently the only ones available had the super special geek squad pre setup service that they called Tech Support. I was forced to purchase this added service that I did not want or I could leave. He said that to me, to my face. Tried telling me that I am going to get this, and that and all of the bells and whistles and I finally balked after my total purchase was going to be over 1000 dollars even though my computer was only supposed to be 499.99. Is it not enough for his manager and that store for me to buy the computer. Why do you train your salesmen to bully people into getting some pre setup tech support package. Whats even better is after I left him, I found some employee in the instruments section and asked if he could find the computer for me. He found 7 that were not pre setup!!! So not only did the computer salesman tried to steal my money, he blatantly lied to my face. The business practice of selling open items as new should come to a stop and I will get my brother to investigate this store and the company for illegal business practices.
Best Buy has the worse customer service.
I ordered a movie online that I had been having a hard time finding in stores. The website said they could get it. 1 month later still waiting for my movie I looked at the order status to see that Best Buy had cancelled my order on this item. I then called Best Buy customer service and the girl I spoke with put me on hold for over 30 minutes. I called back and waited another 5 minutes to talk to someone only to be told that there was nothing they could do, I would have to wait for my gift card to be resent to me (bacause I threw it out after I used it up to make this order), then start all over to reorder this item online. I will never, never, never, buy anything at Best Buy again! I am cancelling my credit card at this store immediately.
