"I will never shop here again! Geek Squad is useless. Service is worse than any other online site. Cannot recommend one thing from here."

"BUYERS BEWARE!!! Bought a laptop at Best Buy. I made a lot of dumb mistakes while using the laptop and it became infected within 4 days. I took it to Geek Squad and they wanted me to buy 2 year warranty at $200 to fix it. Duh, it is only 7 days old, I only paid $400 and now you want me to pay another $200. I visited 3 other computer stores in the area and their prices ranged from $79 to $139, but what is most important is that I listened to what they said. Each one was saying that they would "restore it to factory settings." I came home and searched the Internet and within 4 hours had the laptop restored to original factory settings myself. I spent $400 at Best Buy and they could have easlily told me that, but instead they take advantage of their customers. NEVER WILL SHOP THERE AGAIN!!!!"

"Purchased a flat screen t/v through Best Buy with 2 year extended warranty. Within 6 months the panel timing was off (small black lines through 1 side of the panel) Manufacturer covered parts and labor for repairs and waited over a week for Geek-squad to come out and fix it. Within another 6 months, same issue, this time Best Buy covered parts and labor and was told by Geek-squad tech to start looking for another replacement soon because they would not cover it again. Was sent an email notifying me my extended warranty was going to expire but missed the renewal by less than 12 hours and Best Buy absolutely refused to renew it even though I was willing to pay for 2 year extension. 12 hours? really? No one could do ANYTHING? Piss poor customer service and my thought is they knew it was a defective product and waited for an opportunity to void extended contract and get out of it in the near future. Don't worry Best Buy, I won't be back. Moral is, don't miss renewal of your extended warranty on a known defective product because they are waiting to screw you over to get out of responsibility and they will absolutely not do a thing for you."

"Went to Mansfiled MA store Thursday 2/26/15 and they said would transfer an HP Laptop form their Plymouth MA store. And was told it would arrive Friday or following Monday at latest. Today, Tuesday get the run around all day and they now tell me maybe Friday.. just to send a laptop from 25 miles away. Horrible customer service.

NO wonder their stock is plummeting!

"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.
