After spending almost 2 1/2 hours at the “Coquitlam Best Buy” - one of Canada’s “apparent” leaders in the Computer and Electronics sector here in Canada. And after going through the most bizarre series of events I could have ever imagined – one has to wonder whether or not the “Coquitlam Best Buy” is running an extended warranty scam.
It’s December 18th, 2011 and I just returned from the “Coquitlam Best Buy”. I went into the “Coquitlam Best Buy” location with my computer that I had bought about a month ago from the “Coquitlam Best Buy”. It’s an HP Pavilion dv4. It seemed that I had an issue with the computer and I wanted to get it checked out to see what the problem was. They started off by asking me if I had Norton anti-virus. I said I just had the version that came with the computer – but it was going to expire within 30 days, so I agreed to have them install Norton 360.
They asked if I had recovery discs and that they would throw those in for an extra $20. Apparently, if my system crashed it was going to cost $400 to fix it, so the recovery disks were important. Those normally cost $39, but we will let you have them for $20 – they say.
Then they started talking about their extended warranty packages and how they highly recommended that I purchase an extended warranty package for $149. They had me convinced that within 2 or 3 years my computer was going to have problems and that this was like insurance. By the time they went through the whole spiel with 3 of their sales people – and created the pain in my mind of having to get my computer repaired or being without the computer for extended periods of time, I figured that $149 would be better than paying $699 for a new computer, so I agreed to buy it. Then they offered to throw in an extra year for $30 making it a 3 year extended warranty. So I leave the store paying a bill for $310.63 and my computer is supposed to be ready the next day for pickup.
Something just wasn’t right – I thought. I had a knot in my stomach ever since leaving the “Coquitlam Best Buy” and felt like the sales rep had been lying to me. So before I paid the bill, I said this seems like a really high amount to be paying for an extended warranty package and an antivirus set up. The sales rep assured me that this was standard in the industry. I couldn’t get it out of my head the entire night after leaving the “Coquitlam Best Buy” and it continued all through the next day. I knew that something just wasn’t right.
When you find out what happened the following day – you probably will not trust another sales rep at the “Coquitlam Best Buy” EVER AGAIN! Find out more INSIDE.
