I went to Best Buy yesterday 6/11/19 to purchase a geek Squad 2 year protection plan for my oculus go. I brought the oculus go in so they could inspect it and instructed on the Bestbuy.com website. The person that "helped" me should not have been left alone to do this transaction. He clearly was still training and had to keep calling a manger over asking him questions. He then tells me to verify my info on the lcd screen which I do. I explained that I wanted to use my Best Buy Rewards certificates to pay for the protection plan. I had 4 of them printed out in my hand. Two $25 certs, a $30 cert and a $5 cert. He huffs and acts like it is a major burden that I want to use the certificates. I was about to give him the two $25 certs, when he asked to see them all. Then he points to the lcd screen and tells me to select the "paper" button on the screen. I was distracted by how close to the edge of the desk that my oculus go was. So as I went to move it I looked at the screen and selected "paper" as he instructed. At the time I didn't realize what paper thing was about.
He then tells me that I can only use $35 of my certs towards the purchase. I ask him why and his answer was "that is the maximum amount that you can use when paying with rewards certificates. I didn't want to argue with him or upset him more than he already was. So I paid the rest with my best buy credit card. He hands me the receipt and just stands there not saying a word. Awkward to say the least. I look at the receipt and ask him where the protection plan info is that I just purchased, and asked him if it was going to be emailed to me if he wasn't going to give it to me there. His reply "How am I supposed to know? You chose email or paper and I dont know what you chose." I tell him that he told me to press "paper" and he quickly snaps at me saying he never said that and that I must have chose email and to go check my email. The entire transaction this guy had an attitude and kept being a smart mouth. I asked him for the printed protection plan I just purchased and proof that it was associated with my oculus go. He told me to check my email later because I must have chose email not "paper" At this point I just left instead of dealing with his attitude. Any help on this would be appreciated, Thank you

Just spent the last 3 hours on the phone with the "GEEK SQUAD" Found out that the 2 year protection plan I purchased for my oculus go is not even associated with each other. I have a protection plan with no device attached to it. I was told that I have to go back to the store with the device and have the plan updated with the devices Serial Number. Absolute moron that helped me
