I have been a rewards member since they launched the program and am completely frustrated.
Over the years, I have bought literally tens of thousands of dollars worth of products with Best Buy.
I recently accepted an offer that they offered for 5% back for purchases at Wholesale clubs (specifically mentioned Sam's Club in the email )for using my Best Buy card.
The next day, I made a large purchase as Sam's club that was intended to pay me $75 in rewards. this was in the beginning of January.
Not long after that I saw that I was award $20 in credits (for which I had previousl points accumulated).
I called to enquire about the 5% and after spending a long time on hold, was finally told that the $20 was for a purchase and the the $75 would be issued in 3-4 weeks.
I then called in mid february as was told that the rewards would be issued within 48 hours.
I called early last week and was then told that the reward takes up to 15 days to be processed, not 48 hours. I specifically asked if that was from that date or February 17 (when I had called previously) and he said that it was 15 days from February 17. Today is 15 days past that date.
At this point, I have spent more time on hold and re-iterating all the details and prevous contact than the rewards are worth. My best effort is that I have spent more than 5 hours on hold, waiting for repsonse while CSRs were conferring with coworkers, not to mention the frustration of dropped chats and starting all over.
I truly hope this isn't what the future of trying to communicate wtih Best Buy is going to be. I get the idea of (pseudo) AI to screen the communications, but I generally find it impossible to actually talk with someone.
If BB Is not going to honor the offers they make, just say so and I will go on my way. This one situation has lost 25 years of customer loyalty.
