Update to the Technology SNAFU
Well, we got to Best Buy today with the damaged equipment I wrote about in a prior blog, tablet and my printer, both much less than a year old and both not functional.
So What Happened?
In the words of one of New Jersey's best-known goodfellows, Tony Soprano. . .
When I buy things from Best Buy, I always ask about the guarantee. They always tell me it's 90 days replacement and then a one-year period of service. If you buy the Best Buy extended warranty, you get many more years of technobliss.
The Detail That Was Left Out
What they failed to tell me was that after the first 90 days, the Geek Squad will ONLY help you if you purchased the extended warranty. So they wouldn't help us. Told us to contact Brother and Microsoft respectively.
Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch. . .
I need a printer and I need one now. They offered to sell me an exact replacement for $99.99. I paid $59.99 for it back in February. I know about inflation, but. . . arghhhh So I got home and went cyber-searching. I can't beat that anywhere so tomorrow night, I will go back and buy a printer. If they do something with the broken one, I'll just sell it.
Am I A Happy Camper?
I wouldn't call it exactly that. Let's say I'm a wiser camper.. Now I know to always buy the @(#*$&(#@^#@*^(#@* extended warranty.
And That's The Rest Of The Story!!!
