Restocking fee complaint and rant

Hello all, just wanted to mention that I WAS a long time customer and credit account holder with Best Buy until today. Recently I have been looking for a new camera for my business. No BB store in my area has any stock of cameras that fit my need. I picked up one in store that was misrepresented by sales person and returned it once I realized what it actually was. 

Next I decided to replace a lens on another camera I have and order a pricey $600+ lens from BB online. I did not pay any attention to the 15% restock fee notice tucked away low in the order. So undoubtedly was surprised when I was charge $97 restocking fee. It seems ridiculous that at a time where anything can be shipped from anywhere, they would have such a fee. I am certain they ship from store as needed regularly. AND they do not stock any-or very little-camera equipment in store (yes I tried 3 different locations in two states).

I challenged the charge with Citi Bank. BB denied the charge back. So today I paid them the $97.50 and cancelled my Best Buy card. I guess I will now order only from Amazon and not have to pay any re-stocking fees. Congratulations Best Buy, you not only alienated a LONG time credit customer, but you in turn drove me straight to the online juggernaut that you are trying desperately to survive an onslought from. 

Good bye. Good riddance. I have plenty of credit cards and available credit. I will miss your 0% deals on larger purchases occasionally, but I will just collect my points on my Citi credit card that is not related to BB.


One less credit card!
