Is this true???????
Subject: Fw: DON'T USE "CASH"

 I thought this was worth passing on. None of us have money to throw away. Watch where you shop and know their return policy. Sue
The following was shared by Larry Jones -- well worth reading for future Purchases: DON'T USE "CASH" AT BEST BUY ! It is Best not to buy at Best Buy

Snopes.Com: Best Buy Restock Fee ���� �•
Does Best Buy charge a 15% restock fee on returned merchandise?


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 you're going to do is walk over and place it back on the self! 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 and 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's 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 there little caveats

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

The native resolution for that LCD is 1440x900. If you do not see that resolution in your display properties you can try to update the video driver. If it is still not displayed as an option you may need a newer graphics card. Many newer low end card support this widescreen resolution, so if you need to replace the card you will not need to spend a lot of money.

Make sure that your software, that you view your pictures with, falls into the 'box format' of 640x480, 1024x768, 1280x1024, etc. Background pictures are typically streched to fit the wider screens. You can change that by right clicking on your desktop.. in XP it is the 2nd tab, on the right side, you can choose stretch or ? Some will give you black bars but no skewing. Then you can adjust your monitor's resolution downward to enlarge your pictures, or leave it at a higher resolution if you don't mind the borders. -DellTech1

I'm no genius, but your problem sounds like you can go to the menu icon with the two horizontal arrows and adjust it. Like i said, I'm not a genius, so it might not be your problem.

Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem


If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.
