"HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE!
Purchased a product for my husband for Christmas and was told that it could be picked up in-store by the 19th. Called on the 19th and the order had not even shipped yet! I was told that it took their system four days to process the order. Why four days when they received payment for order within 24 hours of my purchase? What happened to the additional three days? After spending hours on the phone with customer service and a manager who did not seem to care about finding a way to fix the situation, I only have two options. Purchase another item and pay for two, yep, two, because they are unable to cancel the order, or hope and pray that it is here before Christmas so that my husband has something under the tree on Christmas day. I will NEVER shop Best Buy Online EVER again and refuse to recommend them to family and friends!

"I ordered two 25" TV's online for the kids Christmas gifts. I was told "You'll get an email when they are ready for in store pick up." Didn't get it but got the one saying it was cancelled because I didn't pick it up. Went back and forth between customer service and the store- Each saying they can't help me- total 6 phone calls store manager and customer service supervisors. They were at the store But I could not get the TV's now sitting in the store! Now we are only talking 12 hours from the time I got the email! Finally they agreed all I could do was reorder them, so charges off card, then back on card, then I get one delivered not two. I call back and they say they are back ordered and they don't know when I'll get it. So I asked them to cancel the order. I told I would buy them somewhere else. Their reply OK thanks for shopping with us."

"The only reason I deal with Best Buy is due to the fact they are the only company around that carries stuff that I need. They have the worst possible service around. I get different answers from different employees, not just on products but on the Best Buy company policy. I bought a camera from them and it turned out it just wasnt for me so I returned it. I paid in $100 bills in cash. They made me wait 16 days to get my refund. Its hard to test out their cameras when 80% of them are missing the lenses. Half the time I call them they never had what I need in stock and has to be ordered. I dont want to order something without seeing it first, I dont want to wait 16 days again to get my refund back after a product I didnt like. Not only that the price matching that they do SUCKS! If it moves the product, makes money, makes the customer happy, WHY NOT DO IT!? Limiting your price match down to a few websites is a complete joke. I understand their are limitations and some websites make you sign up or get you at the shipping part, but some dont. Step it up BEST BUY or shut down. As an important customer with cash in hand, I'm extremely unhappy with your services, employees, and prices."

"I ordered an item on Thanksgiving and it was missing the significant bonus item. I've been on the phone with them for a total of 7 hours over 3 days and I am still not going to receive the item before Thanksgiving even though they admit the mistake is 100% Best Buy. The customer service processes are horrible and they cheat and lie by offering incentives that they don't deliver on unless you are on the phone with them for hours."

"I recently purchased a TV from Best Buy that cost upwards of $2000. The TV was offered for the same price at Amazon.com, and for $30 less at Costco. However, I chose to buy from Best Buy for one reason only – they offered free haul away of my old TV. Costco did not offer free shipping; Amazon did, but no free haul away. The day my TV was scheduled to be delivered (Saturday the 13th), the delivery truck showed up over ONE HOUR later than the end of the delivery window – with no call beforehand to tell me that they would be late. They moved my TV in and installed it, and I asked them to haul my old one away. They stated that they (allegedly) had no room in the back of the truck, and to call Best Buy to reschedule. I was disappointed, but I’m a patient and amiable person, so I agreed.

I called that night – and after being on hold for over 20 minutes, was told that my haul away could not be rescheduled because the day was not over, and the system had to be reset. Fine. I agreed, and called the next morning.

When I called, I was put on hold again for more than 15 minutes, and then was finally connected to a human. The CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE WAS OBVIOUSLY INEBRIATED and/or STONED. EXTREMELY unprofessional. Horrifying. She put me on hold for over half an hour while she did god knows what, and when she finally came back, she gave me two options for time slots. I asked her why it took so long: “Oh, you know –giggle—the system is having so many problems --hahaha giggle—it just wouldn’t let me through --giggle—you know how it iiiiiiss!!!!! –giggle giggle—“ I was flabbergasted, but agreed to another time slot. I rearranged my schedule so I could be home for the appointment.

They never showed up today. I’ve never had another company fail to call me when their delivery people could not show up or were late – this is the first time. After 4PM came and went, I called Best Buy AGAIN. By this time, I had all the keystrokes and voice prompts memorized from calling so many times. After more than one hour on the phone (most of it spent on hold), this was the takeaway – they had cancelled my haul away for the day LONG ago, but no one had ever attempted to contact me. The customer service representatives called the warehouse – there were no explanations for why they didn’t call me. If I didn’t take the initiative and call in myself, I would still be waiting and wondering.

The customer service staff assured me someone would contact me soon, that day – I’m still waiting, more than 6 hours later. The only “resolution”, after more than SEVEN (7) extra hours on this issue (NOT including the original delivery/haul away window), was a $40 gift card (which, by the way, is less than 2% the cost of my purchase, and FAR LESS than those hours of my time are worth - it's effectively NOTHING) - for giving Best Buy thousands of dollars in business, and them failing to follow through with a basic promised service. I never try to obtain free services or monetary compensation - I would have been completely satisfied with an attempt to reschedule my haul away that day, DESPITE the fact that I'd been waiting for more than five hours at that point. Even this simple request could not be honored. In fact, I was told by the manager that he was “insulted” I was not ecstatic with that the tiny, tiny gift card, because the haul away and delivery was a “zero cost item” to me. This is completely false. The fact that I chose to bring my business to Best Buy over other businesses means that the service holds considerable ECONOMIC VALUE. The value to them is whatever high margins they make on each of these big ticket items. Best Buy simply does not value their customers’ time – they are only here to make a quick buck. I won’t make the mistake of shopping with them again.

Here is WHAT EVERY CUSTOMER SHOULD KNOW: Calling in about delivery and scheduling to their national call center has absolutely no effect – only the illusion of it. They have no say in what goes on with the warehouse; they are run completely separately. The manager admitted that to me himself. The only function of the staff there is to give empty apologies, but no resolutions. They're like passably attractive window dressings: they make everything look neat, tidy, and organized, but serve no real purpose. So if being put on hold for an hour so you can air your grievances onto an empty husk of a person is your bag, you might find this experience enjoyable. Your complaint will never make it up the line – the bureaucratic buck stops here.

What was once a simple issue and inconvenience has snowballed into what feels like a personal offense due to the flippant and irresponsible way Best Buy handles their business. My ultimate issue is with the way Best Buy is run, and not the employees – they are only cogs in a sad, dysfunctional, and outdated machine. No accountability in their organization, no responsibility, no quality control, and no integrity. 0 stars.

"Purchased a pair of Beats Headphones on sale for 49.99, the price dropped to 34.99 after shipment, but before I got the item delivered to me(was still in transit). Called a day or two to get their 'price match' guarantee, I was given the run around by the first person on the phone, essentially telling me they couldn't find the item in their database. The second time I called, spent an hour, however, I was told that because the item was a clearance item, I can't get the price match. This is not in sync with their advertised policy for price match, it mentions nothing about clearance pricing, it only mentions if the price drops after you order and before you receive it, they will refund the difference. In any case, fought with them for longer than I should have(30 mins on first call, over an hour on the second call), but American Express refunded the difference in under 5 minutes. Nice move best buy, never shopping in your store(s) ever again. American Express on the other hand, you've got a customer for life!!! "

"I tried to buy an iPad Air 2 on Black Friday. After trying for over 2 hours to get my order to go through I gave it one more try. I found that not only did I not have an order listed, but conveniently, even though the order never got through, they took all my gift card money....strange. I got concerned so I checked my bank card statement to find that they had charged my credit card not once but twice for over a thousand dollars for an order that didn't exist in their records. After hours and hours and HOURS of phone conversation with my bank, Best Buy and being disconnected (after waiting for over 20 minutes..no less than 5 times) I was told that I'd just have to trust them, they'd make sure it didn't go through on my card. I've never dealt with such an inept group of customer service representatives and you guessed it, they never ordered the Ipad for me.

"Seems Best Buy on line is doing some bait and switch. I attempted to buy a camera with a bundle, but after I set up an account, and filled in the data, the item was no longer available-BUT, I could buy the things in the bundle for $97.00 more dollars. Bad form Best Buys"

"I live in Calgary, 2 separate ads for an item was in their flyer, regular $400 for $50 off. Turns out in both ads no locations stock the item & when I phone locations & customer service they can't see their warehouse inventory or order the item, or bring it in from another store.
I asked for contact info of head office and the only way to contact them in snail mail! No email address. Maybe they should hire Geek Squad to show them how to use email.
If you shop her or Future Shop you should expect no customer service.

Save yourself grief & hassles & do NOT SHOP AT BESTBUY or FUTURE SHOP!

"Muy mal Best Buy. Compre por online en black Friday. Cuando se suponía que el producto debía de llagar me llevo la sorpresa de que la orden fue cancelada. Ni un correo, ni una llamada. Solo un lo siento es política de la compañía que la entrega no se hace en oficinas. Pregunto que donde esta esa política y me dice que en "envíos al exterior" cuando el producto era para ser entregado en alabama. "

"Buyer Beware; Best Buy has no integrity and I feel like I was taken advantage of and discriminated against because of my age.
On the night of December 11, 2014, with the referral, recommendation and assurance of the sales associate in the electronics department at Best Buy # 203 in Austin, Texas, I purchased an Easy CD & Burning kit. I’m a senior citizen and my eyesight is not the best, so I depend on honorable and knowable sales people to give me trustworthy and accurate information. And at my age, every purchase is vital.
I must say I have never been misadvised by any other business sales staff or associates before. I have made purchases at Best Buy before, so I thought it was a company I could trust and depend upon for good honest customer service. Instead I was mislead and tricked into purchasing a product that did not meet my needs or perform the needed function that the sales associate said it could provide me that I needed. I told the sales people I needed a product that had capabilities to RIP a DVD. I was assured by more than one sales person even when I tried to take it back, that this product could RIP DVDs.
When I got home and tried to use the product It could not RIP DVDs, instead it only had capabilities to RIP CDs.
The very next day I tried to take the product back but a different sales associate that day (Josh) would not take it back, I and a friend of mine tried to explain that the only reason I bought this product is because the sales person referred it and assured me that this was what I needed and it could RIP a DVD. If not for the information the sales person gave me I would not have purchased this product. It would have been more appropriate for him to tell me he did not know anything about the RIP process, then I would not have purchased this product. My friend wrote the names of all associate that were involved, but she lost the list of names.
I have come to the conclusion that there are two possibilities to this incident, either the sales people at Best Buy purposely mislead me to get a sale of $32.46 from me and take advantage of me and discriminate against me because of my age and other factors or the sales associates were not qualified or knowable about the department they were working or products to refer and give customers honest and trustworthy advise.
My friend and I left very upset because the associate would not take any responsibility for mistakenly or purposely selling me something I could not use.
But after we left Best Buy, we went to Fry’s and the sales associates found the product I needed. And they also said since they referred the product to me, if it was not what I needed to just bring it back and they would gladly try to find something else or give me a refund with no problem.
I tried the product Fry’s referred for me to buy and it works well.
Thank you Fry’s, not only do your sales associates know their products, they know about good customer care and business integrity. And for that reason I will not be shopping at Best Buy again. And I would advise anyone planning to go to Best Buy not to trust the sales associates.
And this does prove it is at the company’s discretion weather to honor a return or not, policy has nothing to do with it. Best Buy has no integrity and I feel like I was taken advantage of and discriminated against because of my age.

"Used my Best Buy Mastercard at a Non Best Buy location to get the $20 Bonus Reward Certificate. Still haven't received it on 12/12. After about 10 calls and hours wasted. All I'm told now is that I have to wait. This is terrible customer service. Amazon would have given me $20 instantly, first call. They should be ashamed of themselves."
