Best Buy Informative - Extended Warranty - Xbox
I would never buy either an Xbox or an extended warranty from Best Buy. Trust me, the troubles I went through were not worth it. I bought an Xbox in 2007, the best they had $500.00 I bought the extended warranty. Although my son used it only about once per week it began giving us trouble in March of 2009. I took it to Best Buy and for the next three months it was in and out of Best Buy for repairs. It would work for a couple of weeks and then die. After four times, not three, they agreed to give me the cheapest Xbox they had on the shelf ($179.00). I insisted that I had paid %500.00 for the original and should get the best Xbox they had which was still only about $300.00. They refused! After much argument, they finally agreed to give me the second best Xbox, about $229.00, but only if I agreed to buy an extended warranty for it at another cost of about $80.00. As luck would have it in August of 2010 that Xbox went. I took it to Best Buy and they told me it was still under manufacturers warranty and there was nothing Best Buy could do for me. I will have to deal with the manufacturer. My experience with Best Buy has been dismal at best. DON'T BUY AND EXTENDED WAWRRANTY FROM BEST BUY!
