Missing Item in Store Pickup Order

As a Best Buy card holder and loyal customer, I have spent several thousands of dollars in Best Buy stores in the past year.  I have been consistently impressed with the ease of my interactions with Best Buy team members and the quality of the products I've purchased.  Following a recent purchase in which the product was missing a component and I received no compensation or reasonable alternative, I am leery of continuing to depend on Best Buy.  I would greatly appreciate your response to this issue.  
I purchased a Dell Inspiron 7573 2-in-1 system as a Geek Squad Certified open box store pickup item, relying on the promise that all parts were included and that the system was in excellent condition. However, the Dell Active Pen was missing.  For a simple missing component, I hoped that the Best Buy store manager would recognize the mistake made in stocking and selling a Geek Squad Certified item that was missing a component, and that she would simply replace the missing component or compensate me for the reduced value of an open box Dell Active Pen. However, the store manager declined to offer any remedy.  She said that in order to receive the Dell Active Pen, my only option was to return the entire system and purchase a new system.  Purchasing a new system (rather than certified open box) would have cost several hundred dollars more.  I was left having purchased a not-as-described system, receiving no remedy from the Best Buy store, and incurring the expense of a separate purchase of an in-stock active stylus (Wacom Bamboo Ink).  I find it unacceptable to respond to a mistake made by your store by requiring a customer to spend hundreds more.
I will greatly appreciate and look forward to a response.  I will be happy to provide additional information regarding this incident.
Best Regards.
