We have their Compusa stores here. I am surprised that they didn't try and resurrect more than the online presence of Circuit City.

I was in line at Kmart and there was this little old lady on oxygen. She had a cart full of stuff. She wanted individual receipts for EVERYTHING! She took an hour. I'm not kidding. When she was done with her pruchases the line yelled and clapped hands. I felt so bad for the lady, but I think she sh...

Re: Went to BB Yesterday

Went to the store at Dadeland Station in Miami and found that the 32" tv was actually $249 not $259. Did pick up the laptop for $279. However, this may be a bad christmas season for retailers. I got to the store 1.5 hours after opening and they still had plenty of tv's left and I was the secon...

I have the TV and it has been a great set for two years now. It was $399 then(used coupons, RZ points, etc to get it to $299), and $259 is a steal of a deal, but everyone is moving past the 720P sets, and getting into the 42 1080P range, now that prices are relative to screen size and general desire...

Even though I am not in a position to comment on things normally, I would stay home if you are really pregnant. With all of the bustle and craziness, why risk it for the deals. You could always do the online deals, risk free... Agreed! Wait for the rush to be over and then go into the store to hunt...

While it is my fault that I take her with me, I don't wait in line at places at the crack of dawn and where we go is in a very small town with only a Walmart. I don't feel like me taking her at 5 am is in anyway morally wrong. We don't have the trampling issues or anything like that there. And I do...

Re: How do you pay on Black Friday?

Many times during Black Friday I have seen people's credit/debit cards get denied or not enough cash in hand to buy those door busters after tax. There is also the fear of the register not working and reverting to only cash, (saw this in 2007) or getting held up and handing over your green. So let'...

All of the retailers should form a consortium and threaten to permanently close down unless an immediate halt to the ban is implemented. Stores need to get smarter. Big box stores have the power to bring a town to their knees, if neccessary, and closing down stores in a bad economy can save them mon...

I've witnessed many gullible PC buyers waiting hours for their optimized lap or desktops. Best Buy's prices are higher than most online options to include their website which has different prices for many items. Best Buy hasn't had a true door buster in the past few years. It might be the cool plac...

Totally agree with # 1. My best buy did that last year. Only one ticket item per family. We just had people say they weren't together. I thought that was weird. If say your son is 3rd in line and you are 4th why should it matter. You got out there early enough. I don't see how they can limit the ti...

A little paranoid are we? Employees putting merchandise wrong locations to accelerate the "fun" factor and employees stealing tickets The only useful information is bringing a printed copy of the Best Buy corporate policy, even then the managers are going to do what they want and not list...

I had never thought of #2. Great advise! You sound like you've done this a time or two Thank you, and yes, I have done this for over 15 years. Since writing this I have learned that the second manager involved in last year's fiasco was let go, and a new general manager will be in place in two weeks...

Best Buy tactics to watch out for in 2010

1. Watch out for the employees and managers policy switch. They will tell you that there is only one ticket per item per family. If this happens, make sure you take a printed copy of best Buy corporate policy with you. Remember that you only have a couple of hours to have the situation rectified sho...
