Shopping >Fry's Electronics
I went to Fry's Electronics today
intent on buying a refrigerator they had advertised. A "half-asleep" sales rep (he was yawning) named, Sal, looked up the item and told me they did not have it in stock. I asked him to check another store. He spent the next 20 minutes checking the computer and calling another store to locate the product. He hung up and said he'll be right back to get me a rain-check. Another 20 minutes past and I found him chatting away with a female customer (looked more like he was drooling). I asked him for a status. He said he can't reach the manager. I said, "..I've been here for over 40 minutes, when were you planning on telling me?" He shrugged and said he's doing the best he can (like, "Who's John Galt").
I left the store and went straight to Lowes, they had the same model selling for about $200 more, but the store promoted a 10% discount and no delivery fee. The sales rep placed the order and confirmed a next day delivery. Now that's service!
After the above experience, I will never consider a big purchase from Frys. God help me if I ever need service from them.

They charged me $149.00 to tell me that they could not gain access to my computer. The $149.00 was supposed to be the cost of backing up my files. They charged me $149.00 to tell me that they could not gain access to my computer. The $149.00 was supposed to be the cost of backing up my files, not the cost of turning on my computer and telling me that they could not get access. I have filed this complaint and I want to see their response when they explain that services are non-rufundable even if services can't be offered.
