When Best Buy Is Not Your Best Buy

from the false-advertising? dept

It turns out that Best Buy may not, in fact, really be your best buy... The State of Ohio is suing the retailer for "unfair and deceptive business practices" including packaging refurbished items as new, and failing to honor rebates or those warranties they push so hard to sell you.

    poor customer svc from Best Buy / Emachines

    Bought an Emachines system from Best Buy in October, 2004.. didn't pay 'protection' money to best buy to ensure their shoddy Emachine systems would operate a reasonable amount of time.. Needless to say, 8 mos. after I purchased the system, the monitor quit - Best Buy (KC, MO 152Hwy and Flintlock Rd) REFUSED to assist me in getting this monitor replaced or fixed. I will NEVER buy another item from BEST BUY AGAIN.
