Apple iPad 2 Customer Faces Best Buy Bully Tactics
One would have thought that Best Buy’s recent run in with Apple would have taught them a lesson when it comes to selling the Apple iPad 2, but apparently Best Buy has a mind of its own and uses whatever bully boy tactics to make a sale.
Apparently the guy went into a Best Buy store and inquired whether they had an Apple iPad 2 available to which they replied no. On walking round the store the customer saw at least 40 in a lockup area. Naturally the customer asked about them and was informed that they were all sold.
However, a couple of minutes later apparently a manager approached the customer and said he could have one of the Apple tablet as long as he purchase a 109 buck Best Buy protection plan, to which the guy replied that it didn’t seem right.
Thus the Best Buy manager said he could always try locating the Apple iPad 2 elsewhere as they can do what they want. The customer purchased it and after visited another store and was told by a different manager that it is not Best Buy policy to force a customer to purchase the Best Buy protection plan just to purchase an iPad.
So basically Best Buy was saying buy the protection plan and you get an iPad 2, if not then no iPad. Thus it would appear that Best Buy isn’t above using bullyboy tactics to secure a sale. So have any of our readers been faced with this predicament and been force to purchase a Best Buy protection plan in order to get the Apple iPad 2?
