Hello, I am very frustrated and annoyed by how my case is being handled by Best Buy. I purchased a gaming laptop for the holidays (value of $2,699) on November 27th, 2020, and wanted to return the item as I did not like the product. I had a week left to return because due to the holiday returning policy. I brought the laptop to the physical store, waited in line for 2 hours and they told me that they cannot process the return because it is showing out of policy on their end. I would have to process the order online and ship it to Best Buy because it is saying that I still have a week left on the website (it was online order). This made no sense for me and cumbersome for both parties but there was nothing I can do.
So I took the laptop to UPS with the shipping label prepared by Best Buy. I shipped and the package arrived at Best Buy on 1/20/2020 according to the tracking number. On the website, it says to allow 5 days to begin the refund process but I still have not received it. I literally called every day after 2 weeks since returning and spent countless hours with the agent.
Here are my issues with the customer service and how it is being handled:
We could have all avoided this situation if they just let me return it to the store. I bought it under Best Buy credit card and it's basically $2800 dollars I could have used towards something else. I am very frustrated with the situation and it is eating up my time. The agents tell me the same information every time, and I even tried to escalate to a supervisor but no progress. Please help me get my refund. I wasted so much time already and I am getting disappointed in Best Buy.

Best Buy customer service is the worst.

Seems like a fairly common complaint on this forum, historicaly, Best Buy has left many waiting for an expected refund.
My item was returnded via UPS, unit received and confirmation noted by Best Buy, yet it has been over 5 weeks and no credit has beed posted, going through the recommended channels ...calling customer service, speaking to the back office, expecting the email confirmation that never arrive, not unlike the credit, all leads nowhere.
Very frustating the lack of communication and execution. The amount is over $500 , and one should not need to waste time to receive a refund expected in 7-10 business days, they have the product back, now I want my money back.
Not a difficult concept .At this point,please get past the incompetance and get me my credit.
