Default Best Buy proves they are morons

After spending many visits to my local Best Buy here in Pittsfield, MA and always having the obnoxious snot nose kids tell me I should be buying XM and not Sirius I swore I would not go back there after I got my 1st Kenwood tuner. Well lo and behold I couldn't help myself and as soon as I heard the Kenwood PNP was out I went straight there as my options for buying audio around here are limited. Needless to say Best Buy were their usual cluelessabout the new H2A.

Well about 3 weeks ago the posters for the H2A were posted all over our BB. What did they have in stock u ask? The damn car docking kit and no tuners. Of course Mr snot nose knew nothing about delivery times so off I go. Back a week later they still have no tuners but now have car docking kits.
So I go today and wait,,,,, my heart goes pitter patter as I see the actual price sign for the unit up and a new poster for the tuner. Guess what??? No friggin units but the snot nose says we have home docking kits now instead of car docks. I am absolutely amazed at the insolence of BB. The kid says my manger says there was some problems with the tuners we got so we shipped them back this morning.

Well screww Best buy, I ordered and already have my unit ship thanks to Crutchfield.

Best Buy is really in a sad state of affairs. I am glad you bought your setup from Crutchfield. They are good to do business with, I have never not been satisfied with them. Let us know after you get it how you like the H2A. Also... Welcome to SIRIUSbackstage

I had just gotten mine yesterday from Best Buy (Newington, CT), after getting to see sirius in action at another one (Manchester, CT). At both locations the guys were slamming on XM and saying how if you like rock it's almost impossible to find something that is even anywhere as good as sirius. The guys really seemed to be in the know too, When I told him I was concerned about reception, he was like "Well, you have 30 days, even if it's open, just bring it back and we'll give you your money back, and even then, I've never sold one of these to anyone and had them come back with signal issues." Also he was saying how hard it is for them to keep the things in stock because there is such high demand for em. So I asked for a unit and a home kit, and he gave em to me. The downside is they try to sell ya on the insurance, but all places do that. For those of you in CT, the Newington one had like 3 more home kits, 4 more car kits, and 5 more tuners.

Thanks for the report Subroc, and it's great to see sales people giving Sirius a push. I'm noticing that more and more lately!
