Just so you know that they only have a 15 day return policy, after that you're out of luck. They don't even issue store credit. I'd avoid this place like the plague and let them go out of business.

Surprises me they are still in business and the return policy is the least of the reasons why.

I'm used to being able to return something a year later and getting store credit so I can just buy something else. I thought every store was like that.

Is this new?

How come you didn't tell me this back in 2007, when I was not satisfied with my 16 day-old laptop!?

If it was the one in Topeka I could see why. It took them 40mins to find a modem I purchased last month. I purchased it online to pickup in store. I got the alert that it was ready. Yet they had them sitting on shelf. I asked them if I could just take this one and said they would have to cancel the online order. 40mins, a canceled order I finally got what I needed. What a joke. On top of that treated me like ****. IF it wasnt on sale I would have gone somewhere else.

They don't have to let you return things at all. They could just say "all sales are final". They lose money when people return things because then they have to sell it as an open box item at a discount.

Last couple of times I went into a Best Buy just to look, there were more employees than customers. Always a bad sign for any business. I think they are not long for this business world, like many brick and mortar businesses.

It probably states their return policy right on the mile long receipt they gave you. Come on man....They sell electronics, You can't expect a year long return policy!

I personally like Best Buy, Bought a scratch & dent refrigerator there over a year ago (with the 3 year warranty)& it went out last month......They replaced it with a brand new one!!

you tend to [censored], Whine & Cry about a lot things, Calm down.....You'll live longer!

A percentage of returns are all factored into the price, along with damaged goods.

I guess I'm in the minority. I always kind've liked Best Buy. Decent cheap mass-fi stuff. I still use my $99 Sony cd player that I bought there maybe in 1990? Still jamming tunes flawlessly on it!!
