Send to be a common issue. Placed a pickup order that was cancelled after about 5 minutes. Contacted credit card company and they confirmed that the order was authorized on their side. Tried three more times with different emails, pickup names, phone numbers. I don't have another address or credit card. Can I get help figuring out what caused the cancellation?

Good morning, Lho,
Welcome to our community. As I unfortunately know from my own experience, being unable to make a purchase or having an order cancel is not a very pleasant experience. I know I’d be looking for answers too, so I’m glad you found us and reached out here on the forum.
Contacting your credit card company is a great first step, so I'm sorry to hear this hasn't corrected the issue yet. I’d be happy to take a peek at your recent orders, but I’ll need to verify a few pieces of information from you first. If you will please send me a private message that includes the following, I’ll do my best to help.

Thank you for your message. I apologize if this outcome wasn’t what you were hoping for, and we certainly appreciate your feedback on the matter. With that said, our position remains unchanged that we will need you to call us at (888) 237-8289 to place this order so that we can properly verify your information over the phone.

I did. I spent 50 minutes on the phone.
First spent time explaining the issue, then was told I couldn't get the original price, then was told I could get half the original discount, then finally was told to place the order and that the full discount would be added. Surprisingly, this time the order went through with absolutely nothing changed (same shipping, credit card, etc) except there wasn't a sale.
Then spent another 20 minutes where the agent couldn't find my order to apply the discount and finally, magically, the order appeared in their system after I asked for a supervisor. And then found out that the discount wouldn't be applied immediately until I picked up the item and even after, it would take 5-8 days to refund.
All in all, very inconvenient, highly suspicious, not helpful.

I can certainly understand the disappointment of missing out on a great sale, but I am happy to hear we were able to assist you with creating a new order at (888) BEST-BUY. I took a peek at your most recent order and it looks like your item is ready for pickup at your local store.
