Request REFUND on cell phone protection plan

I am very up set. i had very very bad experience on the phone with geek squad. 

i called and tried to explain  that the cell phone i am being charged $8.37 per month - we trade in novembr 2018 and got the new iphone XR but the guy on the phone was so RUDE - his name was Xaivior- i ask for manager and was put on hold for over 20 minutes; try to call back again and got put on hold. i want to make sure i am getting my refund because best buy is charging me cell phone protection for a cell phone that we trade in november 2018. 

thank you

Re: Request REFUND on cell phone protection plan

Stores do not handle the monthly billing, it is done at the corporate level. You should be able to contact Geek Squad at 1-800-433-5778 to have that canceled. Ordinarily, these plans continue until they are either canceled by you or until they hit the 24 month mark. If you didn’t notify them that you no longer own the phone, they would have no way of knowing to cancel your plan. Typically m, these charges are non-refundable after the fact since the phone was covered against accidents/repairs during those months.

Re: Request REFUND on cell phone protection plan

Hello, pua733,

After trading in your old phone and discovering you were still paying monthly for your insurance would be upsetting to say the least.  Thank you for stopping by the Best Buy forums so that we can take a closer look into this for you!

 

Using the email, provided at registration, allowed me to locate a case that was opened up for you yesterday.  I’m showing this case is currently working with the appropriate support teams, and you’re supposed to be hearing back within 7 to 10 business days. 

 

If you have any questions after this time passes, know that we’ll be here ready to help!

Re: Request REFUND on cell phone protection plan

at the time the sales person at best buy sold the new phone and took the old phone- he should have advise us to call geek squad to cancel the protection plan or something- instead of charging us months and late fee for the protection plan on a phone that we do not have-
what would have happen if i did not call - you keep charging me-
i cannot get in touch with a manager or anything -
very upset with best buy

Re: Request REFUND on cell phone protection plan

i am very upset with best buy- i tried to call over 5 phone calls to speak to a manager- 

bottom line

i want to be assure that i will be REFUNDED all the monthly fees that i paid for the protection plan on a phone that i do not have and any and all late/service fees because i thought i had no phone protection plan but was put on my account automatically and being service/late fee also- 

if i did not try to call or cancel this phone protection plan - best buy would keep charging me for a cell phone protection plan for a phone that i do not even own. 

please help me remedy this situation because i cannot get in contact with any one by phone - 

thank you
