Default BUY.COM screwed me. :(

So I purchased a rather pricey bundle form them as I wanted a Wii and as many of you know they're difficult to come by.

http://www.buy.com/retail/product.as...ormat=20&rs=1&

It arrived yesterday with everything except the extra wii remote. Not sure if this was just a goof, if they didn't have it in stock and figured they'd skimp on my bundle, or if someone decided to take it before it was shipped. Anyhow, it's missing and it's $39.99 (or $54.99 for the import version which is all I could find in a store last night).

I called them and they were very happy to issue a RMA number for me to box the entire bundle back up and send it to them at which point they'd issue a full refund... yeah right. Send back a fully functioning item that sells out in minutes whenever any shop gets it in stock because they goofed and missed one part of the bundle? Not likely. No matter who I talked to they wouldn't issue a refund or $40 for the controller or send me a controller. I had to return the entire thing.

It $240 more than I wanted to initially spend on the thing and now I spent another $55 just so I could actually play it with my family.

So just a warning to everyone about buy.com.

LOL no offence, but why would you buy something off a site with a name like BUY.COM LOLLLLLL that's just terrible.

If you really want a Wii just do a google search for people selling them in your city. I paid 100 extra bux for mine, but I don't care.. no one else I know has one.

Me neither, I buy stuff from buy.com and their service has been excellent for me. Sorry to hear about your situation.

Yeah I can understand it being a mistake and I really wasn't that upset until it got to the customer service side of things. I've been spoiled by EVGA's customer service.

Assuming I don't hear back from them regarding my last e-mail here in the next few hours, I'll be sending a complaint to the BBB.

I have the perfect idea. Send the whole thing back. Get a GC and you essentially have the same system with similar graphical abilities (yeah for 480p). Listen, get the grand GC controller; get off your bum and do some jumping jacks. Now you have the Wii experience and it will save you 200 bucks. Seriously, I think the motion controller is kinda of cool, but it is not overly precise. It is rather crude if you ask me. Moreover, the graphics hurt the eyes after seeing the 360, PS3 or even mid-range PC. The Wii is so over-rated in my eyes it hurts. Unless you are a fan of Zelda, I would pass.

OMFG, I cannot believe I found someone that agrees with me. You're a genius and the wii is the biggest piece of **** ever made.
the virtual boy would have been better if you could choose blue or green.

I've got a better idea. Why don't you two stick to threads that champion the system(s) that you enjoy instead of adding useless noise to this one.
