  • Best Buy servie

    Ordered and paid for a refrigerator on 09-02-15. Was told it would be delivered on 9/9/15. At the time of order there were 8 in stock. On 9/9 they arrived to haul away old refrigerator but did not have the new one! Customer service stated they were now out of stock and would not deliver until 10/23. Best buy did not have the courtesy or service to inform us of this, we lost work as well as emptied and disconnected the old refrigerator. Absolutley horrible customer service. More...

  • No Service in the Store

    I tend to avoid Best Buy, because I never have had good service in one of their stores. You cannot find people to help you, and when you do, they often know little about the item about which you seek input. Just got a new car and, after watching some product reviews on YouTube, I decided to drive 15 miles to Best Buy, because one of the YouTube reviewers said he bought his remote start at BB and they did a good job. I know I do not want to self-install, so I made the trip to BB. I walked in the store just before 3 PM on 30Aug15 and it was not very busy. Lots of blue shirts, but no one... More...

  • Fraudulent purchase

    We received our AT&T cell phone bill yesterday 8/10/15. On it were 3 $849.99 I-phones that were purchased at a Best Buy on 7/26/15. We got the bill adjusted through AT&T and found out that the only way this could have happened was that someone got a hold of my husband's social security number. I called the 888 Best Buy number to see if I could get anymore info, such as which store these purchased were made. The first person I talked to said my husband had an account there, when he does not. I went through 2 hours of transfers, hangups and being on hold for more than 30... More...

  • Geek Squad Lies

    I took my 2 1/2 year old Dell All-In-One computer to the Geek Squad in Grand Junction, Colorado with a "Preparing Automatic Repair" message. The Geek Squad put in their boot disc and after waiting a few minutes removed it and told me that my hard drive was bad. Told me I could send it in but usually it is more expensive than just getting new computer. I was upset that they could not retrieve my photos and documents from the computer and they told me to remove it myself. I took it to a computer savvy friend of mine and asked him to remove it for me so I could retrieve my... More...

  • Be careful of purchasing phone contracts at Best Buy

    Similar to a review posted by another Best Buy consumer who purchased/upgraded a Verizon Wireless account at a Best Buy store (in Nanuet, NY) - we were told the charades would be approximately one amount and when the bill arrived it was approximately $60 more than we were led to believe. There were 4 of us in the store and we all left with the same understanding. A Verizon representative told us it was a Best Buy issue and Best Buy told us it was a Verizon issue. Since Best Buy sold the plan it seems as if it is primarily their responsibility. The representatives in the store either... More...

    I visited a Best Buy on 3/27/2015 to purchase a camcorder (HDR-PJ540) for a possible trip to Europe. The original price of the camrecorder was $699.00 but had a sale price of $399.00 because it was on clearance. I spoke at length to a salesperson and mentioned to her that I needed to verify that my Sony Blue Ray had a port on it in order to view our trip. I returned to the store on 3/30/2015, and noticed that the camcorder was not only removed but if I wanted to purchase another one the cost would be $795.00. I told the manage that I was there on 3/27/15 and he said that nothing could be... More...

  • HP Bad Keyboard

    I have purchased many computers and various products from Best Buy but this last go round was a Doozy ! Window 8 is for the birds, and I had to bring it back the same day I picked it up in Dec of 2014. My tech savy guy said there was something wrong with it when he tried to install it for me. I work out of my home and need a reliable Desk Top as well as a laptop both by HP. The replacement system worked ok but the Keyboard became a nightmare, missing every third or fifth letter or number typed. Same for the spacebar and such.

  • Don't trust Best Buy

    Do not trust Best Buy for accurate information regarding mobile phone service. I went to the Best Buy in West Simsbury Connecticut on 12/22/15 to upgrade my phone due to a friends news of a great deal. I was told when I inquired about upgrading to an iPhone 6 that there would be a credit from AT&T of $25 per month on my bill so the $25 monthly charge for the phone would be $0. "Wow, what a deal" I thought. "Are you sure?" I repeated more than once. "Yes" I was told each time. On 1/1/15 I took my son down for a new iPhone 6 . They told us his $25 dollar... More...

  • Horrible GEEK Squad service.

    We purchased a TV from Best Buy and ordered installation service from GEEK Squad. On our initial appointment they came without a certificate of insurance (we asked for it!), waited a little bit and then left. Then the guy called from them and told us that we need to reschedule the appointment, since they didn't have this certificate. I called million times to their representatives to reschedule it and make sure they have the certificate next time. However, when they came for the second time, they did not have it either. I called again, however, my calls were either ignored or just... More...

  • horrible customer service

    I bought a dell laptop on line through best buy. I found the keyboard was wired and not a US key board,. But they refused to return or exchange it because I have got it for 15 days. When I asked if they could help me to replace the keyboard, then they asked to contact dell, then contact Technical service, however no one want to take ownership of my issue. At last, someone told me the issue is not sutable for them, and suggested me to go to store and find a sales assoiciate to ask if they could help me. It was unbelieveable to me. One more thing is that they sent my GPS to the wrong address... More...

  • Zero Communication

    I purchased a dishwasher on Friday, 12/12/14 from the Best Buy Destin FL store, to be delivered locally on the following Monday. The purchase was to include delivery, installation and haul away of the old unit. The salesperson told me that delivery would be between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., but that I would receive a call on Sunday to establish a more specific time. When I had not received a call by 5 p.m. on Sunday, I began to attempt to contact the store, using the number given. After long waits and being disconnected a number of times, I finally reached a person who said I would receive a... More...

  • Don't buy at Best Buy

    Don't buy at Best Buy buy at Costco. Assistant Manager Shawn at Best Buy Montgomery Pennsylvania store refused my return of Motorola Modem after we looked up receipt and found it and recognized that I spent over $10,000 in 2 years. Would not exchange the faulty modem. Gave him many opportunities to stand by the product they sell. Costco would have done it no matter what. Item still like new and had plastic but it was just over the return time. Even had the nerve to say it's not a doc 3 should be a doc 3. Looks at it closely and said "wow" it is a doc 3 but still...

  • Warranty on Computer Magically Disappears!

    Bought an HP from in September, only to have the hard drive die a few months later. Since it was in warranty I did the logical thing and brought it in to be repaired. A week later I come home to a message with a quote of $126.79 to fix it. They are claiming the manufacturer denies any warranty on this machine. I'm looking at the item on the website now. 90 day parts, 90 day limited labor. The agent I spoke to with Geek Squad brushed me off and referred me to the store because it's not their problem. Asked for a supervisor and was disconnected. Called the store... More...

  • Poor Customer Service Levittown NY

    I ordered an item online and saw it cheaper at Target the day I received. I went to do a price match during the Black Friday weekend and was told that no price matches during these 4 days, which is fair. I then asked can I use this add after that and was told yes that I have 30 days. Not true, as I was told today, but the topper is the General manager had no clue my wife was near him and he said "No, these people want everything for free. If you can't afford things then don't buy them at Christmas." My wife interrupted and told him that he was talking about her husband,... More...

  • Best Buy poor salesman

    On 12/06/14 we purchased a new computer from the Springfield, IL Best Buy. During the sale my husband and I felt "pushed" toward a particular computer. Neither of us is very computer competent, so we explained our needs and relied on the salesperson. After deciding on a computer we were asked what operating system we would need. We stated we wanted Microsoft office, excel, and publisher. The salesperson grabbed a program and stated it was what we needed. Of course it was the most expensive. When we got home we found that it did not have publisher after loading it. I... More...
