Hello old friends!
It's good to be back, though I wish it were under better circumstances.
I bought a Dyson V11 Animal with a hefty accommodation on BestBuy.com on Oct. 9, 2019 (a day or two after the GSP terms changed to allow reimbursement up to the regular retail value, regardless of discounts). This week, the trigger stopped working. My husband brought it into the store while I'm working to ideally get it replaced since it was readily available, or repaired if need be. However, the store refunded it under the MFW for what we paid, along with a prorated refund of our GSP. He brought this up to a manager, but because it was originally a BestBuy.com order, the store was unable to undo what had been done, and directed him to contact 888.
Being I was the original purchaser, I contacted Geek Squad while at work. They directed me back to the store. I tried again and landed with Primary Support. Who transferred me to Geek Squad. They heard "gift card" and transferred me to My Best Buy - even though I told them they handle the loyalty program and rewards, not gift cards. Of course, My Bet Buy transferred me back to Geek Squad... who put me on hold before the line disconnected. Being at work, I gave up on the phone, so here I am.
At this point, I've gone ahead and reordered the V11 Animal with the store credit, as I'm moving and need a vacuum to clean my old apartment.
Admittedly, I may be misremembering the intricacies of how things work, but shouldn't this have been an even exchange since it was readily available, not a reimbursement? Is there anything that can be done? I would really prefer not to have to pay the difference if this should have been an even exchange.
If @GingerSpam_Man or one of his associates can help in any way, I would be forever grateful.

Welcome back, though I agree, I wish it were under better circumstances! It sounds like you've spoken to several different agents to get some answers here about your replacement, and I'm sorry to hear that. I'd love to see what I can do to help out.
Please send me a private message with your full name, email, phone number, and purchase information and I can take a closer look here.
