Best Buy in Denver, Colorado - Black Friday 2009
RE: Black Friday at your I-70 And Tower Rd COÂ (Store 1134) 3511 N Salida CT Aurora, COÂ 80011 I just wanted to notify anyone in upper management in regards to how the Black Friday event was held at your Aurora, Colorado location. After bearing below freezing temperatures for 8 hours, with no Best Buy staff coming out to greet their consumers, we finally got word at about 330am that Best Buy staff would be coming out to handout tickets. My fiancÃ© and I already knew wjat we were there for: $179 netbook (Compaq, which was in the ad OR HP, which was on TV). After passing up desktop pc and home theater tickets, staff member announced, "$179 netbook" we happily obliged and each received a ticket. We waited another hour and a half in the blistering cold for the 5 am opening. Upon entering the store, we were told that there is a claim ticket line. After waiting another hour in the claim ticket line, it was to our dissappointment that we were not able to do any further shopping. Furthermore, the cashier informed us that the tickets we had were for the $229 Compaq laptops. I brought this matter to the store manager in charge at that time (I think his name is Eric), and he offered no apology and did not care about the inconvenience this has caused us. We left empty handed and dissappointed. This was a very poor display of customer service and jeopardizes my loyalty as a consumer. I was not offered any other options but to come back at 9am with no regards to our 8 hour wait in the cold.
Best Buy Cashier
I tried reaching their customer service # 1888BESTBUY three times over a three day period and was put on hold each time for over 30 minutes. I was directed by Best Buy to call their number because AFTER ordering a product online and paying for the product I was...
Best Buy in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts - Get everything in writing
I bought 6,000 worth of tv/stereo at BB for surround sound. I told the manager at the time that I had speakers outside of the family room where the until would be installed. He said, "no extra charge". When the install/Geek Squad showed up, they said they would not install the additional speakers UNLESS I paid another $150. Whatever you do-with Best Buy-get everything in writting so you have proof when they make promises they never plan to do! Quite the rip off-never buy anything from them! They add and add without you knowing, my $300 install is now well over $500
On 4-10-09, I purchased a Toshiba Celeron laptop. Within 4 months, it completely stopped working. We took it back to Best Buy, they refused to refund our money. Instead they replaced the hard drive. The same day I took it home, the computer made a clicking sound. Over...
Best Buy in Houston, Texas - Pre-order of game 4 months in advance
how are you going to pre-order a game months in advance and it does not show up on the day it is to come out? When i could of just waited for the the day it came out and picked it up myself! This is unbelievable and the most *** thing ever, I could have just walked up to the store and picked it up on the day it came out but since i pre-ordered i have to wait a week for it to arrive, this is unacceptable!!! And this *** at the customer service desk, well you really can't get mad at them because they are mindless drones following procedure. *** ***.....

Best Buy in Bronx, New York - Frontier Enterprises- Hackensack, NJ- Very Poor service company
I bought a Big Scre Sony TV from Best Buy- Luckily I bought the service contract (or so I thought) The bulb blew out twice in less than 2 yrs. Best Buy outsources to Nusonic Radio. NuSonic Radio outsources to Frontier Enterprises a third party repair company- It took 1 month to get the bulb- I finally got a call to say they would be there between 1-3 on Thursday. The day before the manager called and said they would be there between 8-11 instead. I called Best Buy and complained. Frontier Enterprises finally said they would come in the afternoon. The guy finally came out to repair it- Brought with him the ballast and no bulb. Dummy! I offered to go get the bulb - so he could go to his next site and then return to my house. No way! After speaking with his manager he said he would be back at 11 AM the next day- He finally arrived at 3PM the next day. The repair man said Best Buy does not tell you that the bulbs for the big screen tv only last approximately 2 years. Heaven help Best Buy, NuSonic Radio and Frontier Enterprises if I need another bulb. Frontier Enterprises is not only an irresponsible company- but unresponsive as well. If I did not call them they would not call me. Try getting in touch with them- They do not answer.
Beware Best Buy Electronic Warranties
I pushed a Gateway laptop from Best Buy in 2007 and bought a extended warranty for 3 years. The laptop kept having charge problems and they replaced the mother board 6 times in before giving me a refurbished replacement laptop. I would always call the number of the bottom of my old laptop whenever there was a problem. When I got my replacement laptop and wanted to know when my warranty end there was no number on the bottom. So, I had to get the phone number directly from the Gateway website. I called them and they said they had no records of my original laptop. They only information they had was when I registered my replacement on their website. Once they found my warranty I spoke to a Supervisor to see why Gateway didn't have my records. He told me that this isn't the first time this had happened with BestBuy. Apparently, the number on my old laptop was for a company Best Buy owns to handle their warranties but its not the actual electronic manufacturer. They even introduced themselves as Gateway when I would call so I never thought otherwise. Once I got my replacement laptop it was shipped from the actual Gateway so there that was why there was no number to call on the bottom. So, never buy extended warranties from Best Buy. Only buy they directly from the actual company's website.
Best Buy Replacement
Best Buy does not honor pre-orders on video games
I recently pre-ordered the Collector's Edition of Dragon Age: Origins, a new computer game. The game was released on Nov. 3, 2009, and I made my pre-order on Oct. 23, 2009. I received a confirmation of my pre-order and was told the game would ship a day or two after it's release date. Since my pre-order, the price of the game fluctuated by $5, and it's "Availability" also changed between "pre-order" and "not available". I emailed Best Buy's customer service twice with questions regarding price changes and whether I will be getting my or not. I have received no replies. Since the game's release, Best Buy lists it as "Out of Stock" and is still not replying to my emails - I sent a third email on the game's release date asking whether they will be sending my game or not. I would advise other buyers of computer games to avoid Best Buy. Their customer service seems so poor as to be non-existent, while other online retailers (Amazon.ca for example) have the same games in stock and have no problems fulfilling pre-orders.
