A strongly worded letter followed by a phone call should get you some free poo. If not, be sure to post that here as well.

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.
