Office max and max assurance is a rip off. I bought an Acer laptop from them and sent it in for 6-7 repairs in 2 years.
Some were due to accidental damage but most were from non accidental failures. I sent it in for them to repair my OS but they instead downloaded their own illegit version on my computer even though I sent them my system discs. Then I sent it in because the charging port was broken and a hinge was broken. Their repairs were so *** that it broke apart soon after and they even sprayed my laptop case with a silver spray paint that rubbed off as soon as I even slightly rubbed it.
So now my laptop looks like a ghetto piece of *** sloppily put together with black spots all over where the paint rubbed off. Then a couple months later, I had the same problem with the hinge, charging port, and OS and had to send it in a few more times. I was promised a gift card the last time I called in but they shipped me back the laptop instead with some screws missing on the bottom and the hinges unstable. I am in the process of filing a complaint to the company and fighting for my gift card that I rightly deserve under their no lemon policy.
Their customer service is also very ***, shady, and unorganized. I called in to file a claim and told them I had moved to a new address but they still sent the laptop box to my old address. So after a week and a half of waiting, I called again and find out the *** who filed the claim didn't change the address. This guy promises me to ship another box to the correct address and I call back again the next day to find out that they still haven't changed the address.
Other times I called in, the agents didn't seem to know what they were doing. I was told more than twice I would get a gift card and then I call back to find out that I did not meet the requirements. Needless to say I was pissed as ***. Multiple agents told me I would not receive a gift card because I had a service plan not a replacement plan.
So I informed them of the No Lemon Policy and then they would put me on hold and tell me that the repair center gets to decide if I get a gift card or not. So the conclusion is that the No Lemon Policy is a lie, even on your fourth repair.
