The fridge was not my choice. My wife to be wanted the best thing lol...

Funny thing is... My brother in law and best buy cfo are buddies but I will not bother him over this nonsense. I will write an email to best buy tho.


You should include the reaction of your "friends" (posters here...only a little stretch) that said you were a fool for buying those things from BB. Hit them hard.

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.

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.
