Haha.

Those bastards trying to give you your money back for a defective item. They should give you partial ownership of the store or perhaps a new Dodge Challenger to drive around in. You should definitely report them to BBB for this atrocity!!

DOWN WITH BEST BUY!!!

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

I think you're doing it wrong. If how you speak is similar to how you type they most likely misunderstood you.

Your options should have been refund (which they offered) or replacement. If they don't have the same model they would get you a similar model in the same price range. If you originally paid $25 bucks you're not going to get much

You are seriously bitching about a $25 printer breaking down? And them actually offering you a full refund for it?

Then again it is slidecage.

no im bitching at i was told tuesday to return Thursday with the printer and they would ship it off to get FIXXED

Meaning i would have a working printer


yes they did say replacement and told me to sit down till they get the manager to do it...

AS soon as they saw the NOV 28 price point here comes their big fucking smile and goes


we are not going to repair it or replace it.. take your 25 bucks or nothing ..


so right their they lied twice about the whole thing

the printer was a 89.99 printer they had going for 25 bucks for the 3 day sale so its not a PURE 25 buck printer its a 3 in one printer that cost 89.99 (well cost 89.99 now its over 100 )

I hate BestBuy but it is hard for anyone here to side with you.
You're way pass the return period and opted out of BestBuy optional extended (aka a scam, except w the first gen xbox 360).
You need to deal with the manufacturer on your own.
BestBuy doesn't even have to give you a $25 GC for it.

Let's hope the manufacturer will handle this rma quickly/properly.
Good Luck

WCB best buy is a HP rep or something they said they can handle HP 1 year warr. right on the spot tuesday when i went in.. And today they said the same thing Point is the refused to honor it since i got the item (at 90+ buck item for 25) they even said if i paid 90 for it they would of swapped it out for another 90 buck item.. Returned the item to HP and got their cash back from them

stay the Fuck away from best buy


You know, if you have hardware issues and is under a year warranty, you should take it up the product's manufacturer. If you have a HP printer, call HP, they will help you, likely send you a new printer. All Best Buy can do is, see if they don't have a printer in stock, they gave your money back. They already did their deed, like 30 days return policy and its way past that. Even offer extended warranty (Black Tie) etc when you buy the product. If you got the extended warranty then they should find something comparable in value.

If you brought it for 25.. then your printer craps on later, then Best Buy is giving you 25 dollars.. that means you are not at a loss, you got your money back already. I don't see why you're griping (except what you were told, wasted gas, and didn't happen). But if they don't have it in hand, whose fault is that. 30 days is up, they don't have to honor it. They could have told you, up yours and that you will be stuck with a defective unit. At least they gave your money back. There were times I wish a store will do that.

Besides there's always cheap printers to buy that will do the same thing, they pretty much do!

I want to make sure I understand the scenario first:

On November 28, 2011, you purchased a printer with retail value of $89.99 for $25. Tuesday, April 24, 2012, you brought the printer in for repairs or a replacement as it was under warrenty. Today, April 26, 2012, you found out that Best Buy would not ship the item and thus you could get a refund of what you paid, or nothing.

Did you buy a service agreement/protection plan/etc? Or was this the manufacturer's warrenty? 5 months is well outside the typical return period for an electronics store, and I believe more than Best Buy's return period (I could be wrong on this though).

If you bought a protection plan of some sort, then Best Buy may be responsible for the full price of the item and not the price you paid. If this is the case, then you should have been able to get a replacement. If Best Buy offers a price protection plan similar to Sears and other retailers, then only the price you paid is covered after the return period. Thus, $25 is all you would get.

If the warranty in question is a manufacturer's warranty, then why did you settle for the $25 from Best Buy? If it is a manufacturer's warranty, then you could have shipped the item yourself for a replacement/repair.

Anyways, I know you are pissed because you were told something on Tuesday and then Thursday found out something less satisfying, and that you were inconvenienced by having to drive across town twice, but this does not sound like Best Buy did such a great disservice to you. At best, it sounds like ignorance, or an unsympathetic employee/manager, resulted in your frustration. At worst, it sounds like you had a price protection plan, or you settled for Best Buy's customer service in dealing with a manufacturer's warranty outside of the return time-frame.

unless all of the workers are just plain stupid and dont know what they are talking about but they are telling me Best buy is a HP HUB meaning they can and will honor HP warranty

so instead of returning it to HP you can return it to best buy for that year was also told this again today

If they have an HP that shows up occasionally, they might sell that "service" to customers, but it's really something the HP rep would handle on their own and they'd probably tell you to contact HP customer service.
