I bought a car alarm at Best Buy on 4/2/21 and scheduled installation on 4/24/21. On 4/22/21, I received a call from Scott, who said that I had been sold the wrong alarm for my car. He said I need to pay an extra $100 for a transponder. I drove to Best buy to purchase the transponder, but was told that if I wanted installation without leaving my car for a whole day, I would have to wait until May 26. This is unacceptable, as I had made the initial purchase on April 2 and had to wait almost 8 weeks for installation. I returned the alarm and am reluctant to shop at Best Buy again due to salesperson selling me wrong merchandise, waiting 20 days to be informed and charging another $100, then having to wait an additional month for installation.

User's recommendation: Sales staff may not know the right alarm for your car.

Purchased a new tv, got it home and no hardware to connect the stand to it. The guy at the store told me to bring it back. After a bit of back and forth they finally agreed to mail it to me.

Reason of review
Return, Exchange or Cancellation Policy

Return policy

I bought an HP ink cartridge that proved defective when I tried to install it. I got a reinsert cartridge error message 6 times. Went through the diagnostic process completely to no avail. I reinserted the old cartridge - no problem but no ink. Took the cartridge back to Best Buy and was told they don't accept returns on consumables once they are opened. Since I didn't know it was defective until I opened it, I was out of luck and $21. Office Max will accept a return. Best Buy just lost a long time customer.

User's recommendation: Go to Office Max.

Nobody will pick up the phone

Cant reach Hialeah store. I received a text message to call regarding my computer repair and I have since spent 2 1/2 hours trying to speak to a human being that isnt in the Philippines. I even tried emailing saying that Im having difficulty reaching them. No response.

User's recommendation: Don’t expect to be able to speak to anybody at the store on the phone.

Breathtakingly bad experience

I bought a printer that worked for one day. It would not connect after that. I tried the chat. several times on different days at different hours. No agent available. I scheduled an apt. with Geek Squad,( $80 minimum) but had to cancel it due to family illness . Or I tried to cancel it. I went on the website to cancel but was unable to do so. The verification email they sent never arrived - although they have my correct email. I tried several times. I saw a chat with a live agent from Geek Squad. Agent Amit introduced himself and then vanished. I waited and waited and he never came back. So I called. on hold forever, but finally got a real person to cancel the apt. What is going on with Best Buy? Lousy product and lousy service. One stop awful shopping?

User's recommendation: be careful. I took the recommendation of a Best Buy rep for the best printer for my situation. I thought he listened, but this printer is nothing approaching what we discussed.

So I get my yearly reminder that Geek squad will renew for $199 when I have been paying $70 So why is this a $130 increase? I have been doing this for years now and I need the Geek squad. I only want it for two computers. They really help me and I only use it if absolutely necessary. I have no smart tv etc. please help me $199a year is too much

User's recommendation: Too much for only two computers.

Fraud on my card

No help and no replies from company but to let me know you got my complaint and have I heard from you. NO, I haven't heard anything. You all have this tech crap but can't trace fraud charges especially when they buy cash cards. Cancel those numbers on the cards bought fraudulently. I know you can trace the cards bought and where and how they were purchased. If they had been bought through a legitimate purchase you could tie it back. Thanks for nothing.
