i just had the worst experience I have ever had with Best Buy today in trying to get my Geek Squad Protection plan honored. The supervisor (Terrance) who attempted to "help" me was very dismissive and argumentative and even told me to reach out to corporate because there was nothing they could do. They were attempting to charge me for a repair that was covered under my plan because one system said my plan was expired despite my online account showing the plan was still active and they even provided me a print out that showed my plan would be active today and they still refused to help me. I called into customer service and every agent I spoke to confirmed my plan was still active and even tried to call the store to try to assist, but the person at the store HUNG UP ON THE CUSTOMER SERVICE AGENT! I had to go back to the store to complain to the store manager for continued assistance. The manager was apparently aware of the issue and wasn't even apologetic. My interactions with leadership there made me feel like my issues was inconveniencing them. I even spoke to a supervisor on the customer service line who was supposed to be reaching out to the store to help, but the call dropped and they never called me back despite the fact that when my call dropped earlier in my issue the agent I was speaking to was able to reach back out promptly to try to resolve my issue. 2 hours later one Geek Squad representative (Kiana) finally decided to call support herself and had them fix the issue on their end to resolve the issue. I can't for the life of me understand why this had to be so difficult and why the only people to show any empathy for my situation were the agents (Kiana & Fred). And it took 2 HOURS for someone to take initiative instead of putting everything back on me. This experience was nauseating and I have 0 confidence that the leadership in that store cares at all about the frustrations they caused me or the time I wasted trying to get the issue resolved.

Thanks for your post to us and welcome to our Community Forums.
Having to spend time on issues that are caused by a system error is never a fun time, and I know that I'd be just as upset if I were you in this situation. I'm sorry that you've had to work so hard to try and take use of your protection plan that you have with us, and for the way that you had been made to feel when visiting one of our stores. We expect our managers to be professional in every interaction, as well as ready and willing to help out with any issue.
I am glad, though, in the end that everything was able to get fixed so that your plan could be utilized. Have you now been able to get your item sent off to get repaired?
