I get it though. While I never go until 3-4 hours later when the lines aren't an issue, I presume BB has plenty of issues with shoplifters so self-checkout would only worsen the problem.
Also, although I too like self-checkout, I'm also of the mind that those things are automating and eliminating jobs for people, so I'm okay with BB keeping real people at checkouts. I'm crazy, I know.


Yeah, I imagine self check out would be hard for them. I guess what I meant to say was temporary registers that are run by an employee. A lot of the best buys near me have 2 entrances with 4 registers at one of them and just a loss prevention employee at the second one.

It may have just been the location I was at because I placed my second in store pick up order at a different location that I went to less than an hour later and there was next to no one in line. The first location could have been like the first pick up line I was in, there were only 4 pick ups in front of my but each order had 2-4 people in line.

Yeah, it's honestly baffling. I've been Elite (or Elite Plus) at Best Buy for the last 4 years and never really had any issues.

The most irritating part is that everything I ordered was still in-stock and on sale through yesterday's Cyber Monday sale so I could've easily re-ordered it had they notified me of this BS a day earlier. Oh well.


I sent a game to a friend, and his order never showed up for him.
After a week and a half, tracking updated to show it had been returned, and I was refunded.

Turns out, I accidentally had a one letter typo in his last night. Stopp was spelled Etopp, as an example.

Was surprised they still couldn’t/didn’t deliver it, as I would’ve thought the delivery company could’ve figured it out.

Did you by chance have any typos in your name or address? (I assume not, but, worth a look.)

You're probably right about it being the store. There's one BB a bit farther away that often sends cancellations for pick ups even when the site suggests there are 2-3 left. I would sometimes reserve there only because it's on the way back from work but have stopped doing that there and will just swing by to find the items sitting on the shelf. Overall, though, that store is the exception. Even then, in general their in store, on floor service reps are very helpful.

So I ordered 5 Blu-Rays and a Roku Ultra from Best Buy as soon as they were available for their Black Friday prices on Wednesday, 11/27.
I did Store Pickup for the Roku Ultra (got it yesterday) and I got an e-mail saying all 5 movies shipped on 11/28.

The tracking never updated over the weekend but I just assumed they were backed up with orders and figured it'd all ship out on Monday.

 

However, I just got 3 e-mails stating that my 'return was complete' and I'd been refunded for the movies!? What the hell...

If you contact customer service and explain the situation to them they should be able to reorder the Blu-rays for you at the Black Friday price.

Wow that is like Super Funny.
I had the same thing happen to me on an online purchase of a game during a normal sale. I contacted CS well before the sale was over and by the time they got back to me with an answer, it also came with a "No, we can't sell it to you for the sale price. That sale is over.'

Yeah, good luck with that.

And thus ends my Black Friday.

 

Waiting for all deliveries. The scheduled last day is Dec 10.

So far, one return (thanks gs). May return a couple other items like the battery bank.

 

This Black Friday is the least amount of $$$ I've spent in years ($400ish).

I saw the prices of games in Amazon and they are just crazy. Seriously. I can’t even imagine who will pay so much money for a computer game. I recently saw a seller in Amazon with a huge variety of cartridges for Nintendo and Gameboy. There were Mario, Pokemon, Zelda and many other games of my childhood and was shocked when I saw the prices. One Pokemon cartridge cost 200 bucks. It's just stupid ... I think it's much easier and faster to download free games for the emulator from https://romsie.com/p...nintendo-ds-rom. They are perfectly optimized and there are versions for Windows and Mac.
