So Best Buy's website got shittier

I was trying to see if any of my local Best Buys have one of these new TVs Sony released for the year, and they've apparently changed the way that's handled. Used to be easy to click and see a list of nearby stores with info on which ones have it in stock. Now it's just shitty, and you can only search by zip. I live in PA and the 2 nearest stores are OH. I don't shop by fucking zip code. I didn't really want to shop Best Buy anyway, so I guess it's no huge loss.

Re: So Best Buy's website got shittier

Are you referring to having to now click on each store individually to see if they have stock? Yes, that is indeed shittier.

Yeah, there's no real page anymore. All I see is store pickup and set the store for that. So if it's not the same day, they apparently don't stock it there.

Seriously, who comes with this shit? Are they just making changes to make changes?

Jesus, I hate it when sites update and they're harder to use.

WT?F They don't even sell their own fucking gift cards!! You go to buy a BB gift card and it makes you go through Cashstar and enter ALL your fucking payment info. Fuck off. and how long does it take for my goddamn reward points to show up from buying gift cards through their convoluted shit?

I'm sure some management consultant was paid handsomely to suggest all these "improvements."

That is how a business often takes one step forward and two steps back.

Re: So Best Buy's website got shittier

Why are the reward points from buying e-gift cards left "pending" for days? It's not like I can return the goddamn digital code. Give me my fucking points. Stop dragging your asses on everything.

That's the tech world for you. If you're not making changes for the sake of making changes, you're not really trying and will get fired.

Re: So Best Buy's website got shittier

It seems like everyone's sites are getting shittier.

Have you seen an AMC theater website lately?

Re: So Best Buy's website got shittier

Several newspaper sites that I frequent have autoplay videos at the top. Now if you scroll down, the video moves to a box in the lower right corner of the screen. You can close that box, but it appears again every time you scroll down the page. Really, who wants that?
