Hello All,

Best Buy will price match. They will do so for several other major retailers. They will not with internet only like Amazon. It is very important to match the item you are BUYING to the item that is in the ADD. If there are any even slight modifications they will not do it. For instance I wanted and purchased an HP with a backlit keyboard. The ADD did not have the backlit keyboard so they would not match the price I wanted them to. In this case I ended up going to another store to buy my item. Best Buy does not mention price match so you have to ask for it. Good luck and let me know how it goes!
Used to hate it now I love it

I had a great distaste for Best Buy due to many negative experiences. Recently I begrudgingly went back to Best Buy to look at 4k TV's. I found the experience to be very enlightening. The sales staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I am not kidding this truly was a great experience. So much so that Best Buy has become the store I Once believed it should have been.

Since then, I have gone back multiple times for other products. There rewards program is "ok". Although they do step you up a level once you start to buy more product. They send you $40.00 off certificates etc. They have a fairly extensive relationship with Magnolia as well. The Magnolia sales person actually delivered my TV personally. I am giving them 5 stars now based on multiple experiences. By the way do take advantage of their price matching program. There are significant discounts to be had there.
Hello, First I will say it is good to go to Ashley Furniture. They have a wide variety of furniture. Secondly there sales teams are helpful but like anything else you need to put your buyer beware hat on. Be very specific with what you are getting. Especially when it comes to mattress sales.

However, when it comes to execution they really suck. There delivery teams are the absolute worst. You need to watch every move they make. They move very fast so stop them and tell them what to do. I would strongly suggest that the person who bought the items be there at delivery. They get paid for pickups. So they will leave you with stuff eve if it means coming back to pick it up. it is kind of like networking to make sure they always remain busy. These are not employees they are contractors with rented trucks.
I recently had my oil changed at Pep Boys on Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa as I usually do. I took my vehicle there today (As I usually do) for the service. The vehicle was serviced in minutes and several things happened that are very disturbing.

1. They did not even ask what I wanted for service (Full Synthetic, Half Synthetic?)
2. Upon completion if the service the tech drove my car out and parked it. He was full of sweat and in my drivers seat. No mask no gloves no regard at all for covid 19 safety.
3. The restroom in the shop was totally disgusting.

I paid alot of money for this service. I expect that Pep Boys would have some regard for my vehicle. It is very clear to me that Pep Boys has zero regard for Covid 19 safety as well as customer safety. I originally wrote this review on their internal website to give them a chance to address it. I received an email saying that my review did not meet their standards and would not be published. Well guess what Pep Boys your service and complete disregard for my safety does not meet my standards. I would recommend that anyone who reads this think twice before utilizing pep boys. I will not be going there again. I would strongly suggest that this company shut the doors and review there saferty procedures.
Hello All,

Sorry I have been absent for a while. I had a lot going on with a move and a new job. In any case I recently have had good luck with fanatics.com. I ordered several things off their sight for christmas and now some birthdays. Every shirt and item I have received was very good quality. They may be on sale but they don't sacrifice quality. Also there shipping is prompt and I even made a mistake on my address. I meant to ship the item to my dads house in NY. Instead I chose my house in Florida. I called them up as soon as I recognized the issue. They fixed it right away and even shipped the item to NY early. So far these guys get 5 stars from me.

I recently went to $#*!s Sporting Goods for more golf equipment for my lefty son. I was able to get a really good lefty driver for under $200.00 this was fifty percent off the list price on a holiday weekend. They also honored the coupon I had which made the price even better. I also buy shoes for my kids and send it to them, if you do it in store shipping is free.
I have had very good luck

Sales people are very helpful. if they do not have the specific item you want in store. They will go online with you to get it. or they will recommend you to another store such as Golf Galaxy. I have bought stuff recently for my son who is a lefty golfer. Not always easiest thing to get. however, when $#*!s did not have the item online or in store. They sent me to Golf Galaxy (which they own) and they priced matched the item to the sale price.
I worked with Carmax in Clearwater, FL for my last purchase. I will say I was overall very pleased with the service. I did order a vehicle with their free delivery to the dealership service. When the car arrived there were very prevalent scratches and scrapes in the front of the vehicle. Obviously I was not happy with that result. The sales person however, I want to say it was Rudy and Trevor helped me out 100%. Rudy immediately pointed the damage out to his manager and I declined that vehicle. They handled that very well. Then Rudy took me through car by car their current inventory. I came across a Nissan that I really liked alot. We made that purchase happen same day and I drove that car off the lot. I am very happy with the vehicle and their professionalism. I did give it four stars I would have given it 5 if it was not for trying to deliver a scratched and fouled up vehicle.
I also have to add one thing. After I purchased the vehicle I had it reviewed by a nissan dealership with a detailed report. Carmax has a 7 day return policy and I wanted to make sure it was not a lemon. The car got all good grades except for the brakes. Car max took the report and replaced my brakes free of charge. They are very plesent to deal with.
Truthfully, this is my first time using this kind of service. My relationship started out a bit rocky with these guys. However, that really was my own fault. I brought a project to them on 24 hour notice on a weekend. In any case I have worked on five additional school projects and one letter of recommendation with assignment geeks. When given ample time even on short turn around they do a fantastic job. I was nervous utilizing this kind od service at first. I really did not know what to expect. They do masters, college and other level projects. the results have been outstanding and one suggestion for you. They give you the option to work with a writer on a repeated basis if they do a good job. That has really worked well for me. I have developed a certain understanding of what I expect from the writer. Be as detailed as possible and interact with the writer on messages. Do check those messages daily as they will have questions. Also, ask for a promo code and they will give you one for 10% off or so each time. Good Luck!

Tip for consumers: They do papers, assignments business plans in every category. I would definitely recommend checking them out. Use the tips I gave you and you will have a good experience. www.assignmentgeeks,com

Well the saga continues. After multiple contacts with Online city tickets nothing has changed. We have now received the tickets to the concert. First off the tickets are mobile only. When they produce them they produce them through ticket master. FYI if you are going to sell tickets that you have already paid a premium for. You will be eliminating being able to sell through Ticketmaster.
I say this because, online city tickets uses ticketmaster to produce the tickets to you. Therefor because you did not buy the actual tickets through ticketmaster. You cannot sell them through ticketmaster. Forcing me to go to Stubhub as basically my only option. Just do yourself a. favor and dont even bother with this company.
Unethical Business Practices

a friend of mine bought three tickets off this site for the Ed Sheeran show. Now she cant go as she is moving to Florida ao she wants to sell the tickets to someone who will appreciate them. Online City Tickets is being totally vague about any details nor have they sent a confirmation that they exist. She paid $1,300 for three tickets. This is a total rip off and I will report this to the Assistant District Attorney's office for review.

Tip for consumers: Do not use this site under ANY circumstances.
