RIPOFF AT BEST BUY

I was speaking to a friend online who told me about a new laptop she bought at Best Buy on sale for $799 I went to look at it on line and there it was on sale at Best Buy for $749 This really aggravated me to see that a store would overcharge a customer and not say the lowest sale price which was current. This friend told me there were many college students buying the same laptop, and i felt bad. I sent my friend an email with a copy of the ad online to show Best Buy that it was their current advertised price. She did get a refund of $53.00. The $50.00 plus the tax. after I encouraged her to go back. I think its awful that many others were ripped off and didnt even know it, and especially young people who are going off to college and have so many expenses.

Yes thank God for those government watchdogs protecting me from that big bad Best Buy who would accidentally charge me $50 dollars (that they will refund if the laptop goes on sale). Now who do I turn to to complain that I have paid $120,000 to Social Security and Medicare that I will never get back after it goes bankrupt in 30 years?

They ARE ripping people off. Do you research Best Buy has been fined by many governmental agencies for their shoddy business practices.

they are not ripping you off, Typically website prices update before a store price updates, what you need to do is be smart. Go on the internet and check their website for the price or ask the sales associate if its cheaper online.

Video cameras | Best Buy review from Livingston, New Jersey

Greetings, I bought two video cameras from Best Buy and the service was poor. I was told it would work with my mac computer it did not. I order to return it I had a pay a restock fee. I lost money buying the dvd and memory card already. Do not go to the Destin Best Buy. At a previous time I bought a micowave that caught fire. I was not able to return it either because it was past 30 days. I had only used it a handful of times before that incident. I wish I had read more reviews about a store first. I will be very very careful in the future buying from anyone. Thank you

The return policy is always going to be stated in the receipt, and i know for sure that there are some video camera that wouldnt work with mac. On top of that its your fault if its over 30 days, call the manufacture not Best Buy :x

Best Buy sold twice repaired computer to me as new

I am extremely upset. I purchased an open box gateway computer tower model GM5472, serial number GCX76 910 14306, on Feb 12, 2008 from the Deptford NJ Best Buy. I had them start it up and it worked fine, so i left. I then went away for active duty military for 3 months. I come back to set it up on 5/9/2008. It started in Vista fine, but after 2 minutes a blue crash screen came up and stated that I should get assistance. I called gateway for assistance and they tell me that this computer has been repaired twice before for the same issues under another name. I was extremely upset to hear I bought a twice repaired computer, with no indication that it was repaired before. I then find out it was originally purchased on 8/22/07 and returned on 12/20/07. So, I basically got suckered into buying a twice repaired, 4 month used computer. This is outrageous. How come they get to return a defective computer 4 months later and wont let me exchange that computer for something else since they know it has been repaired twice already. It is very ridiculous that Best buy would sell me a computer that has had so many repairs, been returned 4 months later, and then sold to me. Now i have the same issues and they won't help me. I will be writing a ripoff report and doing everything I can to show how best buy has treated me. I cannot believe that Best Buy wouldn't help resolve this in any other way except to tell me they will repair it again and again and that is all.

I'm a little confused, here...

Did you purchase this computer "Open Item", or was it sold to you AS new?

In any event, Best Buy has a 14 day return/exchange oplicy on compuyers, and that is why your computer is being repaired and not replaced.

Best buy not best price as advertised

Local Best Buy would not price match Sears on Appliances I tried to purchase LG Steam Dryer from Best Buy in Mt. Laurel NJ,. I was treated rudely whenI asked to Match Advertised price at Sears for same unit delivered and installed..Customer service would not give me to store manager instead I was told to call 888-bestbuy. I was told at that number that pricing was at the discretion of Store Manager. In short I believe that the local store was actively trying to avoid the issue by not letting me speak to store manager. I believe that the chain should adhere to their advertisement claims.

bestbuy generally doesn't match package prices and or service promotions, which this sounds like and is stated in the price match policy if you ever looked at it.

Wow, they wouldn't match SEARS? And I thought it was just Tiger Direct, and all the small stores in Chinatown they wouldn't match.

Typically, the only reason a Best Buy store would not honor a competitor's price (on the same make and model), would be market location or availability.

Your rant topic is a bit deceptive. :roll
