I shopped at that store; It sucked...:D

Seriously, I am wondering how much longer Best Buy will last before it goes the way of the other BB. It's not that they so much suck as it is that they provide very little value or reason to go in. And deals like think might get you to go to the store, but I bet this is their form as a loss leader to get you to buy other stuff while in the store. But their priceses are just not that competative anymore, so this is just loss that generates no major upsale or cross sale.


A year or so ago.. I would agree 100% with this.. but now it's on the consumer to educate themselves and BB is and regularly price matches damn near anyone. If your paying to much at best buy it's because your not asking for a price match and educated enough to know what the best deal is out there.

You can't say this unless you know their wholesale costs and the commissions they receive from the providers.
