"I bought a laptop for Bestbuy.com and quit working. I took it back to my local Best Buy store. I just wanted it fixed or replaced. They had deleted the one I had and would not replace it unless I paid extra for less memory. I am done with Best Buy! "

"I ordered a kitchen appliance suite from Best Buy. The dishwasher was installed incorrectly resulting in over $6000 worth of damage. They have since "passed the buck" to their installer who also subcontracted, etc., etc. resulting in three insurance companies involved - and no follow up or advocacy on their part. They say they want to "make it right" -- but even corporate office doesn't return calls. After home owners insurance, I'm stuck for over $2000 - plus an incredible amount of time and duress. Meanwhile, they're very conscientious about collecting payment...

I would not recommend buying anything from Best Buy, and I had been a loyal customer for years.

"I placed an order online for a GoPro camera using 3 gift cards and paypal. The order total was $195.95. I paid with 3 gift cards with balances of $50.00, $20.21, $123.70, totalling 192.91, leaving $2.04 to be paid via paypal. Betsy instead charged me $22.50 on paypal and took all the money off my giftcards. When I called to sort out the issue the CS rep said they don't know why it happened and can't do anything about it. When I asked for a manager they hung up. I called twice more and when I asked for a manager I hung up. This is a ridiculous scam and they will not even explain it. I would highly recommend avoiding best buy at all costs as they are all crooks. This retailer is a scam. "

"Best Buy delivery contractors delivered a dishwasher to our home. Dropped it off in the middle of our kitchen. When I called about the scheduled installation, they said that there wasn't one. Beware ordering online! Apparently, you must go into the store or call a separate number to schedule your installation. So in the meantime, you will sit with a giant dishwasher until 6 days later (that was what our time frame would have been) when they can install it. Best Buy should make this VERY CLEAR on their ordering page so that customers know these are two separate events. Additionally, we cannot reschedule a pick up (or return) of this appliance until tomorrow, and after that, it becomes scheduled for whenever that is convenient for them. So until then, our family of 5 will maneuver around this giant, unmovable box in our kitchen. And just to be clear, I guess that "scheduled" on the Manifest, next to installation, haulaway and recycling means nothing. Best Buy, shouldn't it say, "to be scheduled" so as not to deceive your customer?

Our very smart 10 year old wants to know how you call yourselves "Best Buy?" when you're not giving us the best buy?

"I cannot stress enough to stay away from best buy. I purchased 2 computers at Christmas and one of them has a defect. I spent over $4,000 including the extended warranty and best buy will not replace the computer. They say we have to give it to them for at least 2 weeks so they can fix it. The computer is my daughters and she is in college and cannot be without a computer for 2 weeks. I hadnt even owned it for 60 days. I spoke with a manager and just like the other reviews they wont help you. They dont care if youve been a loyal customer or how much money you have given them. I wish I had read these reviews before I spent over $4,000 in their store. I'll never walk into a best buy store again! Shame on you best buy!"

"Though they have the best prices for most things, the people that work there are complete morons! They try to upsell you on things that you don't need and trying to find someone to help you is near to impossible!"

"Dont buy anything from best buy they will waste your time and still take your money. Costumer service was a joke they gave me the run around and all they could do for me was say sorry, sorry isn't getting my 800 dollars back into my account. My goal is for people to know how shitty this cooperation is "

"I am just appalled by the customer support experience I had with Best Buy. A store would not let me exchange a product I purchased that had an obvious manufacture defect because it was beyond 15 days. (It's been about 90 days since purchase, 60 days of use) I was told I have to handle it myself, directly with the manufacture. After leaving the store I called the corporate customer service. I spoke with someone named Kayvon. I was basically told that Best Buy does not stand behind any of their products unless you purchase a separate warrantee. If it malfunctions after 15 days you are on your own unless you pay Best Buy extra for a warrantee. That seems ridiculous to me on products that should last for years. Could you imagine if you had to pay Nostrum's extra whenever you bought a pair of shoes incase the heel fell off after 15 days? It seems to me if a store has a quality problem with a manufacture they should deal with it or stop carrying the product. I told Kayvon that if I have to deal directly with the manufacture that will mean I have to mail the defective product in, pay for postage and probably be without the product for a month. He agreed. If that's the case I said, a brick and mortar store is not that beneficial and I should probably cancel my Best Buy credit card, and just buy my electronics on-line from someone else, probably cheaper. Kayvon agreed and said that was awesome!
To my surprise I found a lot of negative reviews on Best Buy. Given their attitude towards their customers, I can see why. They'll likely go the way of Circuit City.

" I bought a dishwasher online. I am certain it said Free Installation and Removal. When the Delivery guys got here today my old dishwasher was still under the counter. They said "Oh NO, we don't take them out". What? So I did. I pulled it out. I was fighting to turn off the water, the guy got down and reached under and helped. I then grabbed pliers to un-attach the hose, same guy took pliers and finished. I completely shamed him into it. I said "How are you going to install it, if you don't take it out"? NO, we don't Install. They took the old dishwasher and left the new one ( IN THE BOX ) in the middle of my tiny kitchen. Thanks guys! My receipt has Four lines of Service:
Each with their own SKU
1. Installation
2. Delivery of New Unit
3. Accessories
4. Removal of Old Unit

I called Customer service. I relayed the entire events to the girl, she put me on hold to investigate, she returned saying that it does imply Free Install and that she would schedule it for me. She said first avail was next Tues. I said you expect me to have the unit sit in the middle of my kitchen until Tues? She put me on hold again to see what she could do and I kept getting a recording that said Please hold I held for 15 minutes before I accepted I was in hold hell , and had been disconnected. That was 30 minutes. I called back and a new Customer Service Rep (Rachel) answered, I relayed the events yet again and Rachel said She had no idea who I spoke to, but I would not be offered Free Installation. I said I already have been, are you rescinding it? She said I have no record and will not offer it. I asked for a Supervisor. Left on hold another 10 minutes. The Supervisor finally came on, Yes, I again relayed the events. She also said She didn't know who I spoke to and would not help me any further.. Unless I wanted to pay for services I was told I would receive. This is how Best Buy Treats their customers. Do NOT buy from them

"I purchased a Polk-Audio sound bar at the Best Buy in State College,Pa on Jan 31st,2015. The very first day I started having problems with tuning it off. I had to unplug it to turn off. Since then it will only turn off some of the time. So yesterday February 7th I stopped by the store to ask about it. that's where the problem started.
Don't get me wrong the sound bar has a fantastic sound by the way. The sales person said that he would have to talk to his manager about holding one for me because they here all sold out.
The manager told him to tell me that the only way they would hold one for me would be that I would have to pay for a new one first. What king of business is that? I just paid over $400.00 last week for one.
I have never in my life heard of such a thing. I'm very close to saying that this is a racial thing.
It's not the first time I felt singled out in this store.
The first time I walked in the store I saw a employee that obvious was not a sells person look at me and radioed someone that came rushing up to me immediately asking did I need any help. This person also was not dressed like the other sales people in the store. I sort of forgot that incident until yesterday.
I don't believe that anyone should have to pay to have a product held for you due to a product defect that you just bought.

I would love to hear what head quarters thinks about it. This can not be a store policy and if it is it sucks.

"I am completely disappointed with all of geek squad. I did buy the protection plan then when i sent it in on December 18th they said it would take 2 weeks or less to come back. I still have not received it back and its January 27th. I have been told that it was repaired and coming back, then when i called a week later they said they didn't know where it was then they had to call me back the next day to find it. They found it and it had to be shipped to another place because it wasn't fixed. That took another 3 weeks. I will never ever shop at this or any other best buy again. Plus not to mention they couldn't fix it and i will get it replaced with a new one, but i have to buy more insurance with is completely wrong to me. I feel like I've been tossed around by everyone working here and no one can seem to fix my problem or help me out for thier mistakes. Worst experience ever and once i replace it i will go to Microsoft and have them issue me insurance over best buy. "

"My email to Best Buy:

Hello Best Buy team,

I received an apology email from you in regards to my recent order, a pre-order for the Limited Edition, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS XL.


I cannot find adequate words to express how unprofessional and unacceptable this situation is. The website allowed me to pre-order. It took the money from my bank account and let me believe that for 10 ten days, I was lucky enough to be one of the few to get my hands on this item. I was over the moon to get my order placed after having the item sell out at GameStop in the middle of processing my order there. I was devastated and depressed all day, constantly watching BestBuy.com and Amazon.com for pre-orders to be released. Finally Best Buy said it was available, I jumped on the chance and was instantly relieved and excited and head over heels for Best Buy (even more than I already was) to hold in my hand a confirmation email stating that the Majora's Mask New 3DS XL would be mine. For ten days, I looked at my email every day to see the confirmation email and check the order status to make sure that everything was okay because my confidence had been so horribly shaken.

Then you email me and tell me that I will not be getting this item after all. You email me way too late to even try and get a pre-order with another company. As "consolation" you offered a $50 discount on a regular item. This does nothing to console me. I waited in line, and was second in line to get a pre-order at GameStop. Then my heart was crushed in the middle of the transaction when it kicked the user out and said that the item was no longer available. I spent a day absolutely depressed and thought I was finally saved when Best Buy told me I had gotten it. You sent me the confirmation, you took the money from my account, and then ripped it from my fingers.

If I wanted a regular New 3DS XL, I would pick one up when they come out. I wanted THIS limited edition one. This limited edition New 3DS XL is not going to be released again. Unless I find a way to pay $1000 and get one off of eBay, you have single handedly destroyed any hope of me getting my hands on one. I am of the generation that grew up with the Legend of Zelda game series and missed out on the last Limited Edition 3DS XL that came out. I do not want a normal one. I spent an awful day trying to get this, and you told me I had it.

This whole situation is ludicrous. I have been buying and pre-ordering from Best Buy for years. I have always talked up your service and store experience. I have purchased thousands of dollars of merchandise from your stores and recommended you to many friends, family members, and my own customers when they could not find what they needed in my store.

I will never purchase from you again. I will never speak good of your company again. I will never recommend you, in fact, I will discourage your entire company in every situation that someone might go to you. I have reported this horrendous situation on my Facebook page to my 300+ friends as well as on your Facebook page (which I have already Unliked, and so have many of my friends).

"I can't believe I even considered ordering from Best Buy. But, they had something I wanted to get my wife, and no one else did. So, I begrudgingly ordered it. Nine days later I get an email saying that my order was cancelled because they didn't have enough in stock. Why would they accept orders if they don't have the inventory? They need to get their act together. But for now, I'm going to be telling everyone not to go to Best Buy."
