Distasteful In Store Experience/ Bad Customer Service

Hello BestBuy team,

I don’t usually complain about anything, but today I am writing this to you after a rather disappointing situation I experienced today at one of your stores (Mission Tx).

I’ve been a very loyal customer since I can remember, as I have two kids who are now active professional citizens and I’ve been buying all of their laptops and electronics in that same store since they started school, and being a full time school teacher myself you can only imagine the amount of laptops I’ve been getting through the past 15 years.

I do not intent to harm the store nor the workers as the supervisor and the geek squad were incredibly nice to me trying to assist with my situation, here’s the deal:

I saved some money for the Labor Day deals, I already knew which laptop I was getting using your website catalog. Once in the store, I was advised to get a better laptop (since there were so much better offers there) and I got convinced on getting a metallic 17” Dell laptop, nothing too fancy and it was exactly what I was looking for! However, they didn’t have another box so I ordered it to pick it up in the following 4 days. As I stated before, I am a teacher and depend 100% on my laptop to work, but I patiently waited... turns out, my laptop was delayed and I had to wait another week, eek!!! So 2 weeks without being able to properly work.

By the second week, they called me and I went to the store immediately, only to find out that they mistakenly ordered A DIFFERENT LAPTOP: a 13” plastic Dell.

Long story short, I tried to explain my situation to the manager and sadly he wasn’t able to either fix my situation (the laptop I originally wanted wasn’t on sell anymore) nor help me out with honoring the original Labor Day price. On the other hand, he got me a 100 dlls discount with a different laptop, that’s all he could do. I am grateful for that but that was not that I saved my money for so I left the store with a eh laptop and discouraged of how everything was handled. I hope you can understand my discomfort and even though I already purchased another laptop for mere necessity, I’d like you guys to look into this matter and hopefully no one goes through this in the future.


A let down customer.

PS: Kudos to your geek squad team, they really know what they’re doing.
