Complaint Review: Best Buy - Sugar Land TX
I purchased an HP computer from Best Buy. The computer had immediate problems. I took this computer to Store #199, Sugar Land and met with the Geek Squad. I was told this was a software issue and it was not covered by any warranty. I asked again and was told specifically by the Geek Squad employee, this was not covered under any warranty. I was told I had to pay $216.49 for a warranty from the Geek Squad to have this repaired.
I called Best Buy Corporate and asked if this computer was covered for this type of an issue. I was told by 2 separate Best Buy employees this was covered under warranty, even by HP. To ensure I was getting a consistent answer, I spoke with Technical Assistance at Best Buy Corporate. The person also assured me this was covered.
I called HP Technical Support to confirm if HP would cover this computer under warranty. He also told me this was definitely covered under the warranty. I also called Custoerm Service at HP and they told Best Buy was incorrect and this was 100% covered by warranty. I researched the specific computer on the internet and it also said this computer had a 1 year warranty.
I was deliberately lied to by a member of the Geek Squad so I would feel compelled to purchase an unnecessary service agreement. Emails to the management at Best Buy in Sugar were ignored leading me to surmise this was condoned by management at this branch.
Be careful of the Geek Squad as they have been unethical and lied to get a sale. I would never recommend this store to anyone.
