Best buy has always been known to be a huge rip off. I dont blame them for trying to survive. ohh and the pushy sales people who dont know anything about the products they sell, but still try and push an extra warranty plan on an item that already comes with a 1year manufacturers warranty. no thanks.
Most people do not need instant gratification and can wait a couple of days to save big money by ordering from an online retailer. This is why they will one day go out of business like the wiz, circuit city and all the other outdated brick and mortar stores.
just my 2 cents.
I agree though if we don't support the Big Box stores, future online purchases will be sight unseen (without Best Buy there to stock items).
They are now even price matching based on a sweet deal I got on a TimeCapsule recently.
I hear you on the warranties but there is also a major convenience factor to bringing something broken and walking out with a new one, rather than playing the FexEx/UPS game.
I've called them Worst Buy many times but it would be worse if there was only Walmart and Target stocking low end junk locally.
