BB return policy

I am considering buying a 50 inch LCD TV and a Canon G9 Camera. However, I am concerned about your return policy.

If the items don't meet my need will you charge me a 15% restocking fee? If so I'll buy from anotehr store

BEST BUY, MY FOOT Best Buy has some bad policies....

Normally, I would not share this with others, however, since this could happen to you or your friends, I decided to share it. If you purchase something from, Wal-Mart, Sam's Club, JC Penny, Sears, etc., and you return the item with the receipt they will give you your money back if you paid cash, or credit your account if paid by plastic.

Well, I purchased a GPS for my car, a Tom Tom XL.S from 'Best Buy'. They have a policy that it must be returned within 14 days for a refund!

So after 4 days I returned it in the original box with all the items in the box, with paper work and cords all wrapped in the plastic. Just as I received it, including the receipt.
I explained to the lady at the return desk I did not like the way it could not find store names. The lady at the refund desk said, there is a 15% restock fee, for items returned. I said no one told me that. I said how much would that be. She said it goes by the price of the item. It will be $45.00 Dollars for you. I said, all your going to do is walk over and place it back on the shelf then charge me $45.00 of my money for restocking? She said that's the store policy. I said if more people were aware of it they would not buy anything here! If I bought a $2000.00 computer or TV an d returned it I would be charged $300.00 dollars restock fee? She said yes, 15%.

I said OK, just give me my money minus the restock fee.

She said, since the item is over $200.00 dollars, she can't give me my money back!!!

Corporate has to and they will mail you a check in 7 to ten days.!! I said 'WHAT?!'

It's my money!! I paid in cash! I want to buy a different brand..Now I have to wait 7 to 10 days. She said well, our policy is on the back of your receipt.

I said, do you read the front or back of your receipt? She said well, the front! I said so do I, I want to talk to the Manager!.

So the manager comes over, I explained everything to him, and he said, well, sir they should have told you about the policy when you got the item. I said, No one, has ever told me about the check refund or restock fee, whenever I bought items from computers to TVs from Best Buy. The only thing they ever discussed was the worthless extended warranty program. He said Well, I can give you corporate phone number.

I called corporate. The guy said, well, I'm not supposed to do this but I can give you a 45.00 dollar gift card and you can use it at Best Buy. I told him if I bought something and returned it, you would charge me a restock fee on the item and then send me a check for the remaining 3 dollars. You can keep your gift card, I'm never shopping in Best Buy ever again, and if I would have been smart, I would have charged the whole thing on my credit card! Then I would have canceled the transaction.

I would have gotten all my money back including your stupid fees! He didn't say a word!

I informed him that I was going to e-mail my friends and give them a heads up on this stores policy, as they don't tell you about all the little caveats.

So please pass this on. It may save your friends from having a bad experience of shopping at Best Buy

    IF THIS IS TRUE -- I'M DONE WITH YOU --

    I SHOP ON LINE AND HAVE BOUGHT A NUMGER OF THINGS FROM YOU AND NEVER HAD A PROBLEM. HOWEVER -- I'M GOING TO CHECK THIS ACCUSATION BEFORE I SHOP AGAIN AND IF IT'S TRUE -- I'LL GO ELSWHERE

  • Anonymous Jun 26, 2008

    I have spent almost 3 months now to obtain a credit for a service charge, (a telephone order), which I canceled less than 20 hours after placing it but at least 8 days before service was to be provided.

    Subsequent telephone inquiries (using the order number) were answered that the order had been cancelled, then on-line I obtained the information that "This order does not exist."

    But a charge for $ 244.98 was submitted to Amexco, who are telling me that this "documentation" is sufficient proof. I started an inquiry but so far no results.

    I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM BEST BUY AGAIN!!

    EVEN IF THEY GAVE IT AWAY FREE!!

Hey cometo,

The return period for most products sold through your local Best Buy™ store is 30 days, but please keep in mind that there are some exceptions. Monitors, projectors, camcorders, digital cameras, radar detectors, video games purchased as used, desktop computers and notebook computers must be brought back to your local store within 14 days of purchase in order to be returned or exchanged.

Additionally, some products are subject to a 15% restocking fee if returned opened and non-defective. Those products are notebook computers, camcorders, digital cameras, projectors, radar detectors, GPS navigation devices, and all mobile (in-vehicle) video systems. For special order products however, the restocking fee is 25%.

Remember that the restocking fee is only charged when the product is returned opened and non-defective - we are unable to waive this fee if you are simply dissatisfied with your purchase.

If you are still unsure and would like further clarification of these policies, I would strongly suggest checking out our return policy FAQ by following the link I've provided below.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

G9 has no power and the battery is good; what's wrong>?


Most of the time when a Canon G9 has no power, it almost always has the loose screw syndrome inside the camera. When the screws inside come loose, they cause a short and the camera typically has no power at that point. The good news is it's not too expensive to have fixed.
There's a great shop that just specializes in the Canon Powershots and is amazing for this G9 no power problem. The site is: www.camerasandparts.com They charge $89 total for the parts, labor, and return shipping regardless of what is causing the no power problem. Their flat-rate service packages are pretty tough to beat but they only service powershots. The neat thing with them is they include all of the service for the camera at the time of the repair and they also perform the no power correction automatically which needs to be done so this doesn't keep happening. For those that need help with this problem, they're fantastic for service on these cameras.

Camera won't turn on. Flashes red and orange lights by the view finder and blue at the s button. Battery is fully charged. Just use the camera the other day and it worked fine


The Canon G9 has a design defect, two screws fall out inside the camera and short out the fuse. If you've never had it fixed for no power before this is most likely what has happened to your camera.

Do a Google search for "canon g9 no power repair" and you will see a full repair service including return shipping of your camera for just $85.

Canon powershot G9 will not turn on. Took it to Best buy. Its not the battery or the battery charger. Any suggestions? I took 4 pics yesterday, turned it off, then went to turn it back on to take another...


The Canon G9 has a problem where two screws in the top of the camera work themselves loose over time, then fall out and short out the fuse on what's called the DC/DC board.

This board needs to be replaced, both screws need to be found within the camera (if both fell out), and they need to be put back in place and held in with 'Locktite' so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google search for "g9 no power repair" you will see in the #3 position Darntoothysam com, where you can have this repair performed for $85 total! This includes the part, installation, and return shipping of the camera.

If you want to do the repair yourself (no instructions included, sorry) you may purchase the part you need for $48 including shipping.

Hope this helps!

G7 and G9 have a common problem: loose screws short the circuit boards. So if it’s possible, return it. But if you really like to keep it, open the camera and make sure the screws are secured. See here for more details:
