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.

    I purchased $800.00 worth of car stereo equipment and when I got home and opened the $179.99 Honda cd player, in the box was a USED cassette player for a toyota. The best Buy management was not only rude, but would Not even consider replacing the itme for the correct one! I was totally ripped off for $179.00 and I went all the way up the chain and heard the same thing...."there is nothing we can do".
