The best buy near me seems to change every few months and seems to always be busy.

Almost can never get help there from Friday-Sunday. Not as ridiculous as the apple store though.

Also, I know several people that bought appliances there. Between getting a Best Buy card and getting a discount for buying multiple appliances at once, there was no place to get the stuff cheaper.
Ironically, the reason I hate that company is due to an appliance I purchased from them. We found a great deal on a fridge, put the service plan on it, and then 3 years later the compressor actually caught on fire while we were on vacation. We came home to a fridge full of rotten food inside, and they tried to back out of their service plan (free replacement of like fridge, plus money for lost food). I called and called and argued, and it took weeks for them to actually honor what their plan called for. Even then, they tried to bait and switch by saying they couldn't give me a new fridge that was as nice as the one that crapped out because I got too good of a deal on it. Needless to say, I got a very similar replacement, but the aggravation to get them to stand by their own agreement made me not give them any future business.

I typically shop online at Amazon but this was an emergency situation lol.

I bought my TV at BB a few years ago after researching and pricing the model online. It's an Insignia 42" without the DVR or Smart TV options.

Prime is awesome for me but it looks like it's going up 20-40 dollars. Present members may be grandfathered but I doubt it.

I recently made a large purchase there. They matched the lowest prices I could find, were super nice and helpful, and the delivery was quick and without incident.

I price shop, but I like going in there. I like brick and mortar stores. I online shop too, but not exclusively one way or the other.

I guess I should have worded it better . My cat Frodo Baggins does like butter though.

Love dogs too but not home enough. I visit with dogs in the neighborhood

I love dogs so much that I'm thinking when I retire I'd volunteer at the local shelter. Only problem is we have two now and the Bride says I can't bring any more home. Because I would if I could.

I would have the same problem . I have a hard time going to Pet Smart and seeing the "Kitty Angels" cats. They all have sad stories and I want to take them all home . I have two already so that is enough.

I need to win the lottery to retire or find that rich old guy with feet in the grave . I would rather win the lottery .

It is a good thing my place is only just large enough for two cats because I'd bring home every stray or abandoned cat in the neighborhood.
