I used to buy my computer parts from Compusa because they were local, but they closed. One time i bought a videocard from them and it broke but i bought a warranty along with it. They credit me the amount and i was able to buy a newer card using the full retail amount I payed + the difference in cash.
How does the bestbuy warranty work for a videocard?
If for some reason a videocard is having problems say... triangles on the screen, or games are messed up, or constant restarts... and so on. How would the return be processed?
example: Say I pay $200 for a videocard and $40 more bucks for an extended warranty. I spent total 240 dollars. If the card breaks within the warranty time period and I bring the card back.
Do I recieve 200 dollars store credit which i can apply towards a purchase of the same card and possibly a newer one + extra cash?
I have a best buy locally and wanted to know if i can switch my business to them, because i build gaming computers for clients and want to know my options on warranties available.
Hopefully this makes sense and I get a detailed response,

Very likely BB will refuse to honor any warranty.
They will attribute any defects to misuse, and you will have no recourse.
Do NOT buy from BB.
