[Yahoo!]Forecast For Best Buy: Worst Is Yet to Come - Page 3

post #21 of 163
I don't go in there period because of the aggressive sales tactics. You can't look at any section of the store without getting harassed.

I bought my TV recently from best buy, its great. Kinda sucks for them though. It was the exact same sale price as on newegg, but of course I paid taxes on it.

Next we will see Best Buy marking up everything on the lower end, to make the higher end stuff seem like it really is worth it.

"Oh wow! This Dynex HDMI cable is $55! But man, that Monster is only $65!"

I got my Corsair TX 850 at Bust Buy while waiting for my old PSU to RMA. Guys obviously didn't know what they had on the shelf, it was only $120 before tax. I've never seen that unit so low outside of store closing sales.

They think that just because Circuit City is gone they can rip you off.

They claim it's cost + 5%, but for some items, it's clear the employee discount is cost + 500%. Regardless, an employee can definitely score some good deals.

That being said, TVs at Best Buy are generally priced at market price with some vendor-incentivized specials that drop it well below wholesale.
