Best Buy Complaint - Price
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- This store OVERPRICES BY A MILE. I am NOT a nit-picky person and do not usually shop around trying to save $5 while wasting $20 in gas. I am a busy student/mom and am more searching for convenience and good product. We were browsing in Best Buy yesterday and found huge discrepancies in price on every product we looked at. For example: we bought a 25 ft networking extension cord (Best Buy store brand) and after leaving and going to OfficeMax, found the same cord (different brand) for $12 cheaper. Office max had MS Wireless Optical Desktop keyboards and mice - 1000, 4000, etc. and these were actually 2x the price we found elsewhere. We ended up buying the 4000 - for $37.88 from Amazon - it is $79.99 at Best Buy! Computers were also WAY overpriced - a simple, basic $499 laptop - the same model at Best Buy is $799. Their salespeople - nice but, I once (not yesterday) was browsing TV's and got caught up with one of them that almost wouldn't let me leave he was trying so hard to sell. I felt trapped.
Either way, I will NEVER shop there again - the prices are absolutely ridiculous - this from someone who (should, but) doesn't do that much comparison shopping. Rivergate Shopping Center - Charlotte
