I tried to buy a ASUS K52F-BBR5 that is in the weekly ad for $349.99, but the store two left in stock and they were both Geek Squad Optimized and would cost $60.00 more. The new price is $409.99. For what they do, I think the Geek Squad Optimization Services are very overpriced and they throw away the protective packaging, Some people would actually like to have the packing materials in case they move or need to ship the computer. Without the packaging, it takes away from that new computer feeling. I asked if they would honor the $349.99 sale price and the answer was no. I was told that the Geek Squad at the store was losing money and they could not waive the charges. It is not my fault that the store Geek Squad Optimizes ahead of time, 50% of the laptops. This could be viewed as an example of Bait and Switch. You come into the store expecting to pay the sale price for a computer and then are told, there are none available at that price and you are forced into paying the Geek Squad Optimized Price, if you want the computer. This isn’t a example Best Buy, this is Bogus Buy.
