I ordered a TV and was given a delivery date during the hours 7-1. I monitored the order status, and it kept saying "Delivery today from 7 to 1.". At 1, no TV, so I called the store. I was told that it was going to have to be rescheduled.
Yes, I know we have a situation with the pandemic. I totally understand. What I don't understand is why Best Buy didn't update the order status to tell me that it would not be delivered. I know that they can do this, because when they rescheduled the delivery the order status hit the web site while I was on the phone with the store.
Basically I waited half a day at home when I could have been doing something else, simply because Best Buy couldn't be bothered to update my order status. That's even work you can do from home, and it takes 5 seconds.

I honestly don't remember the last time I have ever been this worked up and upset. I am thoroughly disgusted by the poor customer service and purchase delivery. I purchased a washer and dryer, which was nearly $1400 on March 8, 2020: PRIOR TO ANY WAREHOUSE SHUT DOWN OR COVID-19 CHANGES!
Initially, I intended on picking up the items myself, but was talked into delivery. I ended up purchasing more stuff for the delivery and installation of the washer and dryer, and was informed that delivery was supposed to be the following week.
Well, than I was informed that delivery would be March 24, 2020. I called and said I would just pick up the items myself and was told I was not allowed to do that.
So I figured whatever, Ill just wait until the 24th.
Well, a few days ago I get a message stating that installation would no longer occur. So I paid for something that wont happen and yet was not reimbursed for that....(it gets worse...)
Then come yesterday, I received an email that the washer isn't available for delivery... yeah, nearly ONE MONTH LATER I am informed that the washer isn't available and told by a customer service representative it is because of the warehouses closing down due to COVID-19. That is the lamest excuse ever...the warehouses JUST CLOSED. That is an excuse for appliances I purchased that best buy probably doesn't even have. Oh, I was also informed that I shouldve been able to pick up the appliances. But NOOOOOOO, I was told, "I wasn't allowed to come get my own appliances because they needed to be installed."
Furthermore, I was informed my dryer would arrive between 8 am - 11 am TODAY, 3/24/2020. Well here we are, its 1:02 PM and still no delivery of the dryer. Can't get ahold of anyone from Best Buy. I am beyond disgusted by their service and will be turning this into the BBB. This is truly uncalled for.
I called and spoke with someone within the customer service department who told me that it doesn't look like either appliance will be delivered until April 9, 2020. So

We ordered something yesterday and it's supposed to arrive on the 27th. Yesterday evening the Governor said we all must stay home unless we have essential work.
Will best buy ship through Fed Ex and can they still deliver?

It is quite impressive how little customer service means to Best Buy as a company. I ordered a washing machine which was scheduled to deliver and be installed 9 days after purchase. With my confirmed appointment being missed, I called customer service and was told they were not going to make their appointment and apologized for a lack of notification. They blamed the Coronavirus. While I completely understand and support the policy changes and safety of both the employees and residents, the lack of communication is unacceptable. None the less, we rescheduled for a delivery to the doorstep as their policy states due to Coronavirus for the soonest time available, four days later. That appointment time came and went, another call to customer service occurred where they indicated they don't even have drivers on Saturdays.
For whatever reason, the customer service agent in the original missed appointment scheduled the next delivery when it is not even physically possible for them to deliver. Again, there was no communication whatsoever. After being on the phone with customer service for 58minutes I was finally able to cancel my order and get my money back since they continue to push out the delivery day and fail to actually deliver.
I have absolutely no faith in Best Buy after learning it is normal practice to miss scheduled appointments and not communicate changes with customers. At a time in society where we should all be coming together and supporting one another, it’s unfortunate to see such a large company that says they are customer centric fail miserably to follow through on commitments.

I purchased a high end TV system and a stove which were supposed to be delivered the day the decision was made to cancel all in-home services. We cannot do the install ourselves so having the items delivered would be useless to us. My issue is that we have now paid for the more than $8K charges on our Best Buy card so we did not rack up interest in addition. So I have already paid for something I do not have and don't know when I will get it. What can Best Buy do to make this right?
