[EVGA] EVGA rolls out with exclusive Best Buy graphics cards - Page 13

post #121 of 180
False advertisement much? You'd think a company as big as best buy would not make such a mistake, then you'd realize it may have not been a mistake after all.
post #122 of 180
Guys, yeah Best Buy sucks, but these are people's jobs you're talking about. How about this: I hope whatever company you work for goes under. Yep, I hope you're soon jobless. Bunch of elitists. If you don't like Best Buy, don't shop there. It's really easy.

what sad, is because of companies like BB pricing a 560 for $260 is why the average person shy's away from PC gaming. if you are new to the game and interested you will most likely start at BB, why? because they are every freakin where and tahnks to marketing, what most people think of when tehy think brick/mortar tech. anyway, so you go to BB to look at PC parts and prices and see all these outragious numbers and get scared away....this is what i think hurts PC gaming, all the people price gouging cheap hardware.

So much tweenie rage in this thread. If you're so smart that you know how to buy things online, go ahead, but why hate Best Buy for it? You understand that Newegg and therefore EVGA or XFX make loads of money off of you too, right?

The type of customers that buy video cards at Best Buy generally have enough money to not give a **** about spending a little extra for the promise of instant gratification. Every single customer who comes in knows that we sell accessories at inflated prices, but they don't care. It's not like anyone is being tricked here.

If some guy who buys a computer twice a decade wants to come in and have a gaming computer frankenstein'd together for an extra $200, that's his decision and I promise you they are all aware of it. Hell, if someone comes in looking for a gaming computer I let them know that they can build it cheaper online, but the response I always get? "I'd rather just get it over with."

This is definitely not a Ti version GTX560 and they screwed up the GT520 too, advertising it as having GDDR5, not DDR3. So much fail.
I emailed Customer Service about the error on the website with possible consequences if they were to not fix it. I'll see what they say.
Did you get their respond regarding the error to their website yet? If not i'll call BB today about it

Yeah I'd be interested to hear the response. I might have to give them a call too...hmm

I did indeed get an email back. They basically told me to go DIAF. no, I'm kidding. I only brought the GTX560 to their attention as I didn't notice the error on the GT520 before I sent the email.

This was their response:

Hello Gerson,

I hope you are well tonight and I thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. I will go ahead and get this information over to our IT Department so they can get this information corrected on our website. When customers like yourself point out the mistakes on our website, it really helps us to improve the services that we provide. So again, thank you so much, and please get back to me if I can do anything else to help.

Kind Regards,

Mary
Best Buy Customer Care Team
So yeah, they say that they will fix it. Let's see if it actually happens.

*EDIT* looks like they half-fixed it. The main title said GTX560 but in some of the specs it still says GTX560Ti. They probably believe most of their customers are idiots so they won't notice.

Also lol at the moron who posted a review complaining about the 560 error in the 550Ti section.

FFFFFFFFFFFF I just looked at the box again and I immediately see the EXCLUSIVE SUPERCLOCKED +75 MHz tag and start bleeding out of my eyes. Whywhywhywhywhywhywhy would you pay more for that when you could do it yourself for free with literally 4 mouse clicks? Gaaaah! ^9001
