Best Buy Best Buy policies are changing in March

And it's a real kick to everyone:

I'm gonna preface this by saying that I won't disclose the store I work for but some major changes are in the works. Beginning around the beginning of March (3rd I believe) the company is changing their return policy to 15 days. The price match policy is changing to 15 days as well. The wording in the learning states that a competitor price match is valid only at the time of initial purchase. Any matches done after purchase only apply to in store or bestbuy.com price changes. The wording makes it seem like competitor price matches will not be allowed after day one purchase.

Summary: 15 day return/PM window is coming in March. Silver members are also losing the 60 day window in April.

Got this from CAG.

Target and Walmart let people return things up to 90 days after day of purchase.

I will simply stop buying stuff at Best Buy.

Idiotic move!!
Don't know what they're trying to prove, but it's going to make customers turn to other retailers for larger, monetary purchases.

I think some of you are being kinda harsh on Best Buy.

Their job isn't to make sure you get the best available price 15-30 days after you purchase, it's to make a sale THAT day. I mean honestly, they give rewards points (things Amazon and Wal-Mart don't do), they're still agreeing to price match THAT day you purchase it. What business could logically survive by allowing people to price match and return things 15-30 days AFTER you purchased it? Amazon could play musical chairs with Best Buy if they wanted to. Best Buy could put a relatively new released blu-ray on sale for $14.99, Amazon 3 weeks later could drop their price on said movie to $10.99 and you really expect Best Buy to match that? That's terrible terrible terrible business logic and business sense to give THAT much into customer demands. Everyone loves Amazon's lenient return policy, because unlike Best Buy, they have millions of other things they offer to cover the loss.

Wal-Mart and Amazon have the luxury of having plenty of other means to support their empires, Best Buy has a more limited arsenal in which they have to capitalize and make some what of a profit on what they have. Amazon is doesn't have to sell TV's to survive as a company since they sell about damn near everything else to cover up the losses, TVs being sold at a place like Best Buy or HHGregg are a main source of their revenue where TV sales are just pennies for Amazon.

Some of you need to understand that if Best Buy tries to match everything Amazon does, it's suicide for Best Buy. There's no way they could conceivably stay in business. They'd have to lay off a mass number of employees.

It's really not fair IMO that Amazon can bully a place like Best Buy (yeah Best Buy used to be the bully back in the day before Wal-Mart started getting seriosu about selling electronics) but I'm all for competition but what Amazon does is essentially what Wal-Mart has done to many communities.

Wal-Mart can charge $15 for Tire Rotation because that's just foot traffic for them and no real loss since they're only paying the shop worker $8 an hour. Compare that to a local tire shop that has to charge $40 to pay real competitive middle class wages to someone...

I don't mind paying a little extra at Best Buy sometimes, and I still purchase many things on Amazon as well.

I hate the fact that whenever I see a movie being advertised as on-sale for a decent price at Best Buy or a Target or K-Mart, someone comes in the thread and mentions to tell Amazon to price match it.

You're just giving Amazon more fuel to burn Best Buy and other competitors. Nobody likes monopolies, and Amazon is becoming if not already the Wal-Mart of e-commerce.

uhhhhhh, retailers have been doing this for DECADES. CC did the same thing before they went under. it's about time BB died off too. I say less than a year before they start cutting back stores like blockbuster

and what are you talking about tire rotation? most places do it free of charge (at least around here). or charge $10 at the most. and those are the tire places, not places like walmart

if BB does this my buying days are done. I'll just PM them somewhere else. I stopped buying at Amazon for new releases and only buy old cheapo titles on amazon anymore since they changed their PM policy. I now just buy at walmart since I have the 90 day window

I really want Best Buy to stick around, I really like the store, but I'm not going to pay more than I have to just to keep them alive.

Sorry Best Buy, I'll simply price match your prices, if they're lower, at Target/Wal-Mart

Maybe this is why they're releasing more steelbook exclusives these days? Gotta have a reason for us to specifically shop there...

Tire Rotation where I'm at can be $9 per tire which adds up to $36 or $40 after tax from a Mom and Pop shop (which mind you that money stays local, you do it at wal-mart, that money goes back to Arkansas).

Retailers have been doing this for decades? Retailers have never had to deal with internet monsters like Amazon or eBay before the 90's. That's why department stores are in-danger of going under.

Amazon can pay 100 workers in one warehouse + robots and machines to cover a region of states. Best Buy can hire almost 100 employees per store. You don't see a problem with that math? I hate to get political here but this is what the worst of capitalism will do. Sometimes what's always best for the customer isn't always what's best for market.

If this is the trend you want to keep going, Radioshack, Best Buy, Sears, Macy's, JC Penny will all be out of business in 15 years thanks to Amazon. What the hell is the point of even having shopping malls or shopping centers then?

Amazon and Wal-Mart are as powerful as the banks on Wall Street were in 2008. Too big too fail to the point where they'll never fail. They're just going to keep bullying everyone out of business until they're almost a true monopoly.

Sad that some of you cannot see that.

Some of you are unbelievable.

Cannot believe some of you really expect Best Buy to price match something 3-4 weeks after you bought it because someone else decided to undercut their price.

What's the point of impulse buying anymore if you can just expect Amazon to offer a lower price 3 weeks later and force Best Buy to price match it? That's exactly what Amazon wants you to do. The profit they may have made from you 2-3 weeks ago, has to go back into your pocket and that's just less revenue for them.

For Amazon, that's killing two birds with one stone because they're indirectly effecting your shopping habit.

lol, amazon isn't the price leader. it's BB who offers it lower in a few weeks and amazon price matches them.

Brick and Mortar shouldn't end.

It's an experience that's different from purchasing online. I enjoy doing both because there's thing online (such as Amazon) that I don't have available in my area.

And don't give me talk about strong surviving. I don't mind people putting other people out of business if it's fair competition, but carpetbombing and bullying your opponent into submission is not good for business and it's not good for all the workers who need jobs.

Again, we're talking Amazon employing 200 people + robots and machines at a warehouse that covers 10 states, versus 40 Best Buy stores employing roughly 80-90 employees per store in 10 states.

200 jobs versus 3200 jobs.

*snort, how are they "bullying", they're employing standard business tactics to beat their competition. if BB can't keep up and can't compete on the online front then they don't deserve to exist. Blockbuster couldn't compete with Netflix and screwed themselves on the online front. as a result they're pretty much folding. way of the market. whole market AVENUES will come and go. brick and mortar's day as dominating way of shopping is at an end. sure they're not all going to go away, but as my dad says (he's also in the stock and finance market), brick and mortar's are going to be nothing but showrooms anymore with a direct mail order base after a while. the old way of shopping is going to be obsolete, some may resist but they will adapt

There's no use in reasoning with most people on this board. All they care about is having to pay the least amount no matter who/what they step on. It's not even the least amount. It has to be under some ridiculously arbitrary low amount...like $5. Oh, Star Wars box set - and you're not selling it to me for under $5??? Eff you and hope you die. That's just the general attitude.

Unfortunately, BBY's days are numbered. And most people on here cannot wait for it to happen. These threads (and this one especially) makes them come out of the woodwork.

Uhh, like I said. If Best Buy chose to go the route of Amazon, then they'd be online exclusively and that's hundreds of thousands of jobs that aren't there anymore (Best Buy, delivery trucks, Anderson Group, etc.)

Considering our country is already in a jobs deficit crisis, I'm sure giving Amazon more revenue while not creating more jobs is the solution.

I'd love to see some of them actually have to run a business, and have the shoe on the other foot (customers complaining about pennies and why you aren't bending over backwards for them).

to a certain extend that's true. and a lot of people want to see BB go under. I'm not one of them. I hate their internal management but they've been good for the market in many ways. but I also don't believe in coddling companies. If they can't compete, then that's not my problem. as consumers all we should be concerned about is if they're bring a product that we want at a price we want to pay. if the company's goals and our goals intersect at some point then we have a success. if not, then the company is not something the market needs. simple rules of economics.
