I often prefer to use www.BestBuy.com over going to the actual store. Well, during the holiday season I wanted to check-out some newer items they had in stock.\r
I was glad to have made such a decision. While checking-out, the sales-clerk who was ring ing up my items offered some insights that saved me more money through in-store specials, rebates, and similar products priced lower. But there's more to it! This employee then asked if i wanted to use my American Express card, and if-so I could get free magazine subscription trials for many choice selections. These suggestions all ended up being quite significant! \r
(Ex. $20 Manf. rebate for 1GB memory card, $15 BestBuy rebate for a home cordless phone, 10% special invite discount coupon through mail, and free magazine subscriptions)
PROS: Variety of brands and models for all price-ranges
CONS: Sales staff is either extremely knowledgable or very aloof.
