Never buy anything but TV's, movies, and games from Bestbuy.

what? why?

now sometimes you can catch a decent deal at bestbuy.com, but in store, you pay more, get worse service, and there's some goofball at the door wanting to put his mitts on your new property.

i only go to bestbuy for small things that i might need right away, static-free dust cloths for example, or.......

i really can't think of anything else.

Well don't buy anything if you know that you already want it. But movies and games are ok to buy on a whim, and the only reason I said TV's is because you can find some really awesome open box deals sometimes.

I got a 55 inch Samsung Smart TV LED LCD that retails for around 2500 for about 650 bucks after all the discounts available that day - for instance.

i tried the open box discount thing once for a TV and they'd only take 10% off. i don't remember what that model was selling for at the time (2010) but i know i got it at roughly a little over half BB's price about two weeks later. (and unopened) i think BB's price was around $2600 and i got it for about $1450, but again, i'm not sure exactly what it was going for at the time

i'm also a bit of a cheapskate. i usually don't buy on a whim, even movies or games. for example i only go to redbox when i get that free rental text once a month. :cool:

inetvideo used to be a good place to get blu-ray movies, but their deals are crap now. i got spoiled buying both HD-DVDs and Blu-Rays for like $1 each before either caught on

Yeah they're normal open box discount is 10% but that day they had a 25% off any purchase over $500 as well as an additional 10% off total purchase for signing up for their rewards card, and they let all the discounts credit at once rather than sequentially. Point being, I got like 45% off or somesuch - it was a pretty good deal at any rate.

It seems like there was another discount I'm forgetting, because I got the TV for less than half price. Meh, I forget.

WorstBuy....after I had to escalate some promo offers to a manager, I was done with them. They ran the promos, knew nothing about them in store, then accused me of trying to scam them. When I got angry, the manager said Id have to leave the store or shed call the police. I never said one cuss word only loudly voiced how incompetent they were.

Thing is... I spent $100 on panthers tickets so I completely missed the game yesterday.

Trust me, it would've been an even worse weekend if you were able to see the game live

I moved to my new home this Saturday and everything went smooth until Best Buy fuged everything up. I bought fridge, drier, washer, and 55' tv from best buy almost 2 months ago and delayed by delivery to this past Saturday. Best Buy warehouse person called on Friday night and told to expect delivery around 10am. So I'm sitting in my house with no tv or food and waiting and waiting... Its 12pm so I call Best Buy and lady tells me my stuff is in transit and should arrive shortly. So I continue to wait and wait... Its 4pm and I'm hungry as hell... I called back Best Buy and asked their customer service rep what the heck is going on... He said warehouse manager will cal me soon... I was like ok. So Best Buy warehouse managers calls me back and tells me that one of my family members cancelled my delivery with them on Friday... I exploded... I live by my fuging self... There are no other family members... He was lying to my face after he completely screwed my whole day up. I yelled at his and called him a liar, he said they won't be able to deliver my stuff until mid next week... I was like wtf? I ordered 60 days ago so I told him I'm going back to best buy and getting a refund and I will buy all this stuff hhgregg across the street... Its 7k worth of stuff. He freaked and said he can deliver this stuff to my house at 12pm on Sunday... Only date that available... I agreed. Thing is... I spent $100 on panthers tickets so I completely missed the game yesterday. I'm also Best Buy silver member... I'm not spending another penny over there. The only reason I went through is because I need appliances bad. Btw, the fridge I paid $3k for came in faulty so I had to go back to best buy and they said they can't help me so I had to call manufacturer today to order parts for my brand new fridge. So that was my weekend...

Did this ruin your weekend? Or was it me beating you in fantasy football?

There is no customer service anymore as companies seek cheap labor instead. That's why I order everything I can online.

see, I actually sort of like when these kinds of things happen at my house. My darling wife would have turned that screwed up weekend into a minimum 25% discount, and probably a free blueray player or something else...she's the bomb at getting free poo when others screw up!

that said, I hate ordering poo. If I'm out shopping and you don't have it in stock...I'm out the door.
