On April 4, after spending an hour waiting for someone from Best Buy to pick up the phone, I FINALLY reached someone at Tech Support. I explained that my power crord had broken and I wished to purchase a nerw one. He transferred me to Sales Support, and after another 30 minutes on hold, I reached a very chirrpy young lady from that department. Ms Chirpy asked me the model of my laptop (Dell 15-3000), but she never asked me the serial number or the Service Tag number found on thece bottom of my laptop. Sle assured me that she knew exactly what cord I needed because both her friend and her cousin had one!
Needless to say, my chirpy friend had NO IDEA what she was talking about and I will now have to spend the time sending the object back to Best Buy Returns.. I finally purchased the correct cord through a third party, and I received it yesterday. In the meantime my I was unable to participate French study group that is being held via Zoom.I also had no power to answer emails or go on Facebook.
I don't know if this was the fault of incompetence, poor training or both. But sending the wrong item back is an inconvenience and the lack of ability communicate with my friends and family is inexcusable.
