Micro Center - Microcenter customer service is horrible - scammed me into getting 2 year extended accidental warranty knowing the item wouldn't be covered
Update by user Aug 10, 2014
Thanks Microcenter for clearing everything up and honoring the mistake. I'm totally satisfied.
Thanks to James from customer relations for reaching out. The new computer was there when I got there and they explained the warranty clearly. A 2year accidental warranty will cover the value of your machine. Say it was a 2000.00 computer you would get 2000.00 on a giftcard if the computer was unfixible.
However the value of the warranty everytime you need a repair. So 2000.00 becomes 1700.00 and so forth. So if you can fix a minor issue on your own do it so the value of the warranty stays intact. You really want to maintain the value for your time of need.
Also the 1 year accidental kicks in after the manufacturers warranty.
The 2 year accidental kicks in as soon as you leave the store.
Hope everybody understands this information.

Your sales associate misrepresented a warranty to sell it. I need a new computer like I was promised if my computer malfunctioned in the future not a refund 4 months later.
If your competitors provide excellent customer service why can't you.
I feel like I'm dealing comcast customer service.Is there any sane micro center representative that can call the microcenter in Chicago and explain that if they lie about a warranty to make a sale they should accept responsibility fix the issue and have a staff meeting on properly selling warranties. Management has been helpless and condescending.
Is deception common microcenter business practice?
