3.3 feet for $500. How do they get away with this?
Just so you know, they make little refillable canisters for those kinds of coffee machines. You wont be restricted to the flavors that are made by Keurig, and you'll save money too. I never liked the idea of those coffee machines because I've seen the price of the refills in the store. Now that I know they make these refillable ones, I'm considering getting one.
1) Buy Oblivion GOTY for $20
2) copy serial to steam
3) turn in to city and profit
I ran across this while trying to find out if a stereo would fit my car. It goes all the way back to year 0.
> For example, even the cheapest HDMI cable you can get at Best Buy is going to be about $30 if you're lucky or $100 if you're stupid.
Or $1,095.99 if you're... well... actually I'm having trouble imagining under what circumstances anyone would buy such a thing.
diamond hdmi cable
I worked at Geek Squad and they made a $1,000 Hdmi cable. it's on the website here
I found this review for a $1200 HDMI cable (Oh, now it's $1500)
>I pawned my TV, laptop and took out a small loan to get this cable. I should have just gotten the loan, because now I do not have a TV to utilize the cable with. But forget about the TV for a moment. This cable is awesome. I told all my friends I was getting this cable, so we planned a party for when I got it. They were all impressed & jealous at the same time. They all said they wished they had the cable, but they tried to convince themselves that their $10 HDMI cables were sufficient and just a good. How wrong they were. My diamond-plated connectors were the life of the party. Instead of figuring a way to hide this cable, I needed to devise a plan to keep in the limelight. It's black and a very exotic dark heather gray. Once I get my Smart HDTV in about 3 years, this bad boy will blow all the other TVs out of the water. Until then, I'm happy just looking at it. It's a wonderful piece of art. I was able to price match it and get the price down to $1200. Tax and a warranty made the total about $1500. For that price, I almost felt bad for requesting a price match.
That's a $700 value! It's like Sony is paying you to buy a PS4!
PS3 controllers don't have red, green, blue and yellow buttons. He's obviously playing Halo 1 on the PC (as well as other PC games.) using this controller... True gamers my ass.
The sticker is for Prince of Persia
I was expecting you to mention this, though the one you mentioned is more interesting, and probably more successful.
I have noticed many, many places using the SALE! Now only MSRP! SAVE! SAVE! SAVE! trick. (That is, a product listed at full retail price, with a big huge "AMAZING SAVINGS!!!" sign or the like)
Edit: Another popular trick I have seen employed is "double pricing". Say you sell something for $19.95. It's $19.95 every day, that's just the price. Put a second price tag with, say $24.95 written on it. Now it's special. Very popular for clothing.
Guys, Best Buy can have some good deals too.
The Audioquest $1100 HDMI cable
2 foot $1000 cable
These headphones. All these years I thought I listened to music, turns out I was just hearing it, until I obtained these.
The PS3 version is also $4.99 on bestbuy.
This is actually pretty awesome for the price if you're into hobbyist electronics. For $5 you're getting a 2.4GHz RF remote control with a 1920x1080 drawing surface, 4-way D-Pad, 7 buttons, and a 6-bit accelerometer.
The PS3 version is based around a Nordic nRF24 chip, which are available on ebay on a breakout board for like $1.50 (shipping included), and pretty popular in the hobbyist world. The Xbox version uses a microsoft chip/protocol which is not as hackable, I think.
You could probably hack a PS3 uDraw into a remote control for this quadcopter for example, because they both use nRF24 radio chips. The uDraw's MCU is an STM8, with programming lines broken out to test points, so that should be reprogrammable if you need to change the radio protocol.
They even made the circuit schematics publicly available in the FCC database, the PS3 version's FCCID is YFK-05109901.
These guys give great advice. Like how they said I'd get better picture quality on my TV with this HDMI cord.
I have owned a Vacuum Shop for the last 16 years. 10 years is the high end of the life expectancy for most vacuum cleaners, there are always exceptions. All vacuums require constant maintenance, cleaning filters, changing bags or emptying water, changing belts, cleaning brushrolls, etc. The Dyson machine are NOT worth the money, and they are very hard to get parts for when they tear up. I am also not a fan of Bagless Vacuum cleaners, dust retention is awful on most machines and they require more maintenance than a bagged vacuum. For versatility and durability try to find a good canister cleaner, I personally have a Panasonic canister cleaner (mine is an older model of this but very similar) that I have been using for years and I love it. Panasonic also makes some great upright machines, and they also manufacture a lot of the canister vacuums for Kenmore.
Here's the list of the price matchable retailers.
Appliance and electronics hardware products include audio hardware, video hardware, cameras, camcorders, desktop computers, notebook computers, e-Readers, tablets, TVs, MP3 players, small appliances, major appliances, gaming handheld devices and consoles.
I have some of these. A 10 pack cost about $6 at Best Buy and Office Max.
Each pack comes with 5 colors.
I found 2 cables from Bestbuy that will infuriate you more
This one is even better! And the reviewers back me up on this!!
struggled with this problem for years, even though I knew the cause. No center channel = muddled dialog, blown out background sound.
I solved it recently by buying and setting up a fairly cheap, simple little sound bar from Sony (if you're interested) - and it has made all the difference in the world. Not one instance of the sound channel level problem since.
For those of you who may not want to go the full home theater route, but want to hear your movies' dialog, this solution may be just what you need. I couldn't be happier with it.
What site? Bestbuy.com? If you need good quality HDMI cable I recommend you buy this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/AudioQuest+-+Diamond+3.3%27+High-Speed+HDMI+Cable+-+Dark+Gray/Black/2383276.p?id=1218324437192
Something to keep in mind when finding a Harddrive:
Some companies keep a long inventory, some companies keep a short inventory. Traditionally in the computer market, short inventory companies require higher volume and take advantage of the generally downward prices in the market. Sites such as newegg and amazon work this way.
However, in cases of a break in supply, they don't have much in the warehouse and can't get anything else. They also know that they will sell a certain number of drives even at much higher prices. Knowning that in the next few months they will only get X drives and usually sell 5X drives means they increase prices so they can make the most per drive since they can't sell any more drives anyway.
Long inventory companies such as BestBuy, Staples, etc don't have to do this. They will get a higher price per unit than Newegg usually does, but they have 3-5 months stock of these drives. They are better off it if they get more sales from this at their normal price than jacking it up and getting fewer sales.
Thus a WD 2TB drive at newegg costs $150: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136772
The same drive at BestBuy costs $80:
This isn't entirely true. Sometimes they force you to buy a ten dollar gift card if you want your stuff recycled.
EDIT - Thanks to Genuisidiot We've got more info on MOTD. Summary -
The AK47 Will be back!
For the Wonder Weapon, it's a "directional beam". Apparently you can augment it to enhance it.
The Warden is like the Cosmonaut. He may lock certain doors, such as locking a cell. 2-hit down with Juggernog.
And now Best Buy is advertising Uprising on their Website
Nintendo games tend to hold their value for a long time. You may be best off buying them used, or just waiting for a sale, like the one going on right now (which does include Fire Emblem!). If you're okay with getting digital copies, though, you don't really have to worry about price going up, since there won't be any price increases due to scarcity.
Is Fallout: New Vegas worth it at that price? I've never actually played any Fallout game before, wondering if this price/game is good enough to begin playing Fallout with.
Edit: Apparently, for anybody else considering, it's $10 over at Best Buy if you're in the US.
This is what i am going to do, probably going to get one to hook up to my computer as well.
Looking into this one.
By the way, Metro Last light is only $0.01 at Best Buy right now. So if you don't have a copy, pick it up.
Edit: Unfortunately the deal is sold out now.
Best Buy is all sold out of preorders for the X1, and that is for the first few shipments through the end of the year as BB was selling preorders well past what they had available for day-one shipments.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it ...
You have an extremely short deadline, you only need this laptop for a meeting, and you have a low enough budget that your choice isn't too important.
So, here's what you should do: Go to Best Buy (you're on the train there anyways), or any other local store which you know sells laptops. Buy the best-looking laptop in your budget; focus on getting a laptop which looks good and that you don't have trouble typing on. You want to give the appearance of being prepared, rather than necessarily having the best possible laptop in your budget. Then, after the meeting, you can either keep the laptop or return it and get a different one.
That said, I'm inclined to suggest this Asus laptop.
Good luck, Jim. This comment will self-destruct when it reaches the end of your screen.
We started with an Igloo 5.2 cu ft chest freezer (on sale for $150) that has a built in refrigeration option. We double-checked the temperature by putting thermometer in there and letting it stabilize after 24 hours…confirmed, it is ~40 F.
Edit: Don't forget to drill pilot holes for all of your screws! It will help with alignment and make things SO much easier. You will also have to drill a pilot hole for the taps, all the way through the board. You'll have to drill the spade bit on both sides to get all the way through, so this pilot hole will ensure your two cuts line up.
They didn't have to honor the price. They could have called the local toys-r-us to verify price and availability. Source: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Payment-Pricing/Best-Buy-Price-Match-Guarantee/pcmcat204400050011.c?id=pcmcat204400050011
This is just obscene.
Photoshopped or not...best buys pretty firm on a feb 1st release...
...it isn't just Gamestop. Amazon BestBuy EA Store
You can use this link to see if your local BestBuy has gotten their shipment.
Exhibit A: AudioQuest - Diamond 3.3' High-Speed HDMI Cable. These would just fly off the shelves at $547.99!

I'm not sure how long these will be on sale, so if you're interested, you may want to hurry. There's free shipping available, and you can also just pick it up in-store. Also, I'm sorry if this has been posted before. I didn't see it anywhere.

I have not used a floppy disk in over ten years.
Look into these
You could have purchased the game as a digital download from Best Buy! [Link for others who may be in a similar situation].
I worked at Best Buy for 5.5 years, and the only thing worse than the stupid customers was the stupid employees.
Your entire first paragraph makes little to no sense. You correct yourself later by saying that the markup on accessories is due to no margin on core product. The reason no printers worked with Vista was the lack of drivers from the manufacturer. That has nothing to do with cables or Best Buy. And I guarantee Best Buy doesn't think that everyone has a wireless router. That's why their Geek Squad HNMS is their biggest inhome service.
The stores I used to work at did sell that cable. I think they stopped carrying it in favor of this, even though it only does SATA. However, there are still a few versions online, and I'd be very surprised if some stores didn't still have them. I sold them all the time!
The stupidest customer I think I ever had to deal with was someone who called in saying her new laptop wouldn't turn on. I went through some basic troubleshooting, and finally she explained that it was working, but had shut off. I asked her if there were even any lights on it when it was plugged in. She told me that it didn't have to be plugged in. I said "Yes, it has a battery, but you still need to plug it in when the battery is dead to charge it." Her response was yelling at me "I DON'T HAVE TO PLUG IT IN. THE SALESMAN TOLD ME IT WAS WIRELESS!!!!"
Hey guys, Best Buy has Fallout New Vegas for $9.99 I feel so dirty recommending Best Buy, but it is $5 cheaper for PC, Xbox and PS3.
UPDATE: I called bestbuy/cashstar and changed the email address of the gift card order, somehow the scammer had not used it yet. I just ordered what I was supposed to buy from amazon to prevent him from using it. I'm just waiting to go pick up, Logitech Z313 2.1 system.
So a happy ending after all.
Everyone here is also skipping over the fact that you can get no contract smartphones and very very cheap plans from tons of places now, at pretty reasonable prices. If someone is on Welfare, they aren't doing good, but you can't very well put in job applications with no phone. How are they going to reach you for a job interview? Get your entitled head out of your ass.
Apple brand cables, if bought from Best Buy, are in fact not the best buy. The "lightning to usb" is $20 and the "lightning to 30-pin adapter" is $40. And the rocketfish brand is $25
I know people that adamantly refuse to buy cables that are not Apple brand. Generics are in fact way cheaper.
Incidentally, the following OUTSTANDING review is for one of BestBuy's $178 HDMI cables (The AudioQuest Chocolate Cable):
"What's great about it: Too much cable for one man
What's not so great: too much cable for one man
I've had lots of cable in my day. Thin ones, fat ones, short ones, metal ones.. But THIS. his blew my mind. I never knew I could get so much from going chocolate. I shuddered at the price at first, but after paying the premium, you get premium quality IN YOUR FACE. Your neighbors and friends will be amazed by just looking at this monster. Even more amazed at the results. Careful, your neighbor might want some of this chocolate cable too.
I would recommend this to a friend!"
Link to locations and times. Looks like it's only June 12th from 4-8pm and June 15th from 1-5pm. Anyone have any rationale why they would go through all the trouble to set this up for only four hours on two days and not just leave them available during normal hours all week or whatnot?
Just beat me to it.
A link for the lazy: Dirt Cheap Vinyl.
If you want to spend 40 bucks more you will not be disappointed.
I have had these speakers for close to 2 years now they are amazing. The bass on this thing is very deep and intense. I listen to EDM so it is perfect with the different sounds i get. There is no rattling and the speakers are clear and crisp too. It has a headphone and an external jack on the side so you can plug in your ipod if you want or hook up a record player which is what i did.
I highly recommend these for your computer, you won't be disappointed and everywhere online they have had great reviews. The 40 extra dollars is worth it
Ah, a dirty peasant (/r/pcmasterrace). Well, the best price I could find for the 360 version of the Orange box is:
I bet they're using this HDMI cable.
I saw this sole 2-star review at Best Buy earlier today, which pretty much echoed the same. S4 Active not so water resistant.
Best Buy also has the following games on sale:
I know. One of my favorite things is to go to the TV department and find the guy staring at the HDMI cables (you know the ones they sell that cost from $40 - $1200
and inform him of the wonders of digital technology and how a gold plated connection is worthless (oh and how I bought 3 on newegg for like $12)
This is so weird. The prices on a lot of this DW gear don't make any sense. Unfortunately, a lot is listed as "sold out online".
Full list of DW hardware. What the hell? Wish I saw that deal on a 9000 earlier. I just checked on Midwest Percussion and the double 5000 pedal goes for over 300 bucks!
Thanks so much for the heads up. I snagged a 5000 hi hat stand for $99 and figured I may as well grab the double kick pedal since it was only $80 (cheaper than the single pedal listed! wtf). I don't generally play double bass so I can always use it as a single.
TIL Best Buy sells drum hardware and prices it oddly.
Nyko makes pretty much the same thing and sells it for 80% less.
EDIT: Turns out you can buy them for even cheaper than that. Amazon has it for $13.25+shipping, and BestBuy has it for $14.99 with free shipping.
I just made this quickly off of http://www.bestbuy.com (so there's your source).
There's an obvious overall trend there, if you count apple products as outliers. And even there, you can start to see a trend within its own brand. You have weight and price rising together to a point, being about the 5lb mark. Then, it drops back down, and begins the trend over. So the trend holds for each individual category of laptop, but not between them.
Hm. Still, with that, I can see why a normal layperson would correlate 'heavier = more expensive = better'.
EDIT: I kind of want to re-do this graph a little ways down the road with more cases, and solely within the PC realm. Apple products insane pricing schemes can really throw ANY attempted correlation out of whack, as it really doesn't follow industry standard. More 'cult mentality' standard.
Okay that's a boldfaced lie. The closest comparison you can make would be something like this. It's got the same exact processor, GPU, and RAM. A 256GB SSD would cost around $200 if you were to search for deals a little, giving you a total price of $1600. That extra $600 gets you thinner construction, better build quality, an INFINITELY better screen, and better battery life. It wouldn't be entirely fair to compare weight, since this is a 17 inch, but still, 4 pounds for all of that is pretty amazing, even for the price.
Very nicely written. Now that you know you don't need there $1,000+ cables from Best Buy, visit MonoPrice for the best deals on HDMI cables you'll find.
Of course, if you really think the 1s and 0s bounce around better in the Best Buy cable, go for it.
Rocketfish Vault Case. The thing is awesome. I no longer feel worried throwing my vita in my backpack, or anywhere else. Highly recommended.
That's a VERY disappointing price on Bioshock Infinite. Both Amazon and Best Buy already have the physical copy for the same price with free shipping.
By the by guys, there's actually some other offers going on at Best Buy for PSN cards and PS+ subscriptions:
$10 for $9.50, $20 for $18.50, or $50 for $45 (this one isn't shown there, but it works at checkout)
$5 off 3 months PS+, $10 off 1 year PS+
Don't forget, if you don't want to wait and have a bestbuy nearby they do price match amazon.com, as long as it says "sold and shipped by amazon.com".
Currently $99.98 & FS at Best Buy. Think of what you could do with those 2c!
There really is no baseball off-season with MLB Rumors.
Just a note about Ken Burns' Baseball, it's on sale at Best Buy for $40, marked down from like $180.
If you're in the US and want a physical card to give to someone, we're selling more traditional gift cards at Best Buy now, in $20, $50, and $100 denominations.
You can get a regular Wii with two games for $120.
This doesn't even come with a game and has less features.
Or how about a $1,450.00 USB to iPod cable?
AudioQuest - Diamond USB-A to Apple iPod cable

Going to surprise you here:
Bestbuy still sells that same drive for $80 before tax: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Western+Digital+-+Caviar+Green+2TB+Internal+Serial+ATA+Hard+Drive/9234465.p?id=1218064150518&skuId=9234465&st=WD%202TB&cp=1&lp=3
We are use to seeing BestBuy as greedy bastards and newegg/amazon/tigerdirect as more consumer friendly options. However, their differences lie in business models and in this case bestbuy's model is advantageous to the consumer.
Newegg/amazon/tigerdirect all work on a short inventory model which requires high volume and regular shipments from the factory. Since tech prices generally go downward and they have to undersell the box stores to get high volume, usually they are a far better deal. However, when a break in supply happens, they know they will have 5X orders at their current price buy only get X numbers into the warehouse in the next month. Since they know they can't sell more than X, they jack the price through the roof to reduce the number of sales to X and maximize how much they can make with what they have.
BestBuy/Staples, etc use a long inventory model that allows them to have products on the shelf when you arrive but generally mean that they have 3-5 months worth of product already somewhere in their supply chain. Although they can't order any more than newegg, they have a lot more ready to sell and it doesn't make sense to jack up the prices and slow down sales. They will work with their current inventory and enjoy higher sale rates as their competitors increase prices and probably have enough in their chain to get through the supply problems.
In essence, any company is out to maximize profits whether they are bestbuy or newegg. Usually newegg's method results in you paying less, but this time they maximize profits by charging you through the nose and thats exactly what they did here.
The reviews for those are pretty great.
The APQ 8064 actually supports DDR3:
>The 8064 is a quad-core Krait SoC, clock speeds are once again limited to 1.7GHz initially (the SoC will eventually scale to much higher speeds). The memory interface grows to support standard DDR3-1066. The SoC also has on-die SATA and PCIe controllers, making it an obvious target for Windows 8 based systems.
Plus Best Buy list DDR3 in their early bird Nexus 7 (2013) listing: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Nexus+7+7+inch+Tablet+with+16GB+Memory/1484847.p?id=1219052238174&skuId=1484847&st=nexus%207&cp=1&lp=1
Granted there's still the difference between Krait 200 and Krait 300 performance wise but it's not that big a deal.
Awesome! I'm inspired to learn this now. I'll need a keyboard... and a little reclusion.

Well, just to pick one example...
> Expensive computers for kids are gone.
Except that this costs as much as a netbook that will run Chrome equally well, plus a whole bunch of other stuff they'll need to learn about or want to play with.
> Clunky laptops for your salespeople are gone.
Except that they're all about the same size as an Asus Aspire, which will run brand-name Excel and Powerpoint.
> Tech support for older family members is gone.
... maybe. Lord, I hope so. It might just mean all the old solitaire-and-spyware doddering grandmothers of the world have to be told why "the Cloud" ate their holiday pictures.
I hear ya man, HDMI chord at Best Buy 79.99. HDMI chord at amazon 5.00. It's a rip. Oh and there is always this (best buy link).
Not always, looking at the pricing from tigerdirect/newegg we actually have a lot of those computers at similar or even cheaper pricing. It's the sales tax that gets you. That and when people decide to buy warranties and accessories.
Vs newer model with larger hdd and not refurbished -
I've never used a rechargeable battery station or anything like that, so it might be bias when I say stick with the Microsoft Play & Charge Kit. You never have to fumble around with batteries or anything like that. If your battery is running out, the lights around the guide button in the middle will start flashing... at this point, all you need to do is hook up your charge cable for a while. You can still play while it's charging as well.
what? are you trying to say this cables a ripoff?
oh by the way read the reviews. priceless
Sure, it's just an "added treat" for you, but what about the people that preorder from BestBuy? HERE is what they get, which you'll never get your grubby paws on, just like they'll never get what you'll receive from Gamestop.
What about the folks from Australia and Europe, who are pretty much fucked completely?
This isn't like the "bonus" from Portal 2, which was a slight, inconsequential recoloring. This is gear that should be packaged in the game proper, gear developed well before launch. This has been one of the things people have always feared most about the rise of DLC; that more and more a game's content will be trimmed out pre-launch and sold back to us in drips and drabs.
how about the $1,500.00 hdmi cable at best buy?
Here is how you work best buy. Their inventory system is based off their SKU information. Checking on their Website, the SKU for the pebble is 9713809. Just call them up and ask them to check inventory on a SKU for you. That way they have to actually get someone to check using a terminal. Sometimes the inventory is incorrect if the QTY is less that 5 but they can at least tell you how many they "should" have and what others Best Buys have it.
When I was on Best Buy's site regarding the events, it let me select a State and a City. When I clicked on "GO" it pulled up the detailed info of the actual store, including the address. That's the only place I've seen that gives more info; hopefully it helps!
Also, Mario Kart DS has been $35 for nearly 8 years.
Best Buy updated their policy in March. They now match a few online stores such as Amazon.com and Newegg.com. There are others but just click the link if you want the details.
review said to check other images as the bezel isn't as thin. looking at this, it's almost a scam.
