    Best Buy is my first stop

    when I want to try new gadgets but I always end up ordering from Amazon. Am I the only one?
    Of course I throw them a bone once in a while by buying some printer paper.

    • My next purchase of consumer electronics will be a state of the art home theater for my new home.

      It is not something one orders from Amazon, to be scattered on your front lawn with assembly instructions written in Spanish.

      Now as for printer paper:

      THAT might be something I would order from Amazon if they sell it cheaply enough.

      But I rarely do, because I tend to do impulse buying while I am checking out the more technical stuff in a Best Buy store.

      • Go ahead and waste your money. You can almost ALWAYS find the same stuff online for cheaper and often with free delivery. I sometimes go to Best Buy to check out gadgets, write down model numbers, while comparing prices on my phone. I only buy small things at Best Buy where the online saving are minimal. I'm sure the profit margins on such items are minimal. Bottom line: Best Buy doesn't make products, it only sells products. Due to its huge overhead, it will never be able to compete with online prices. They are doomed. Compare to Apple stores. Apple sells it's own merchandise. Prices are the same in store as online, so if you're gonna buy you might as well buy in the store. BBY will be below 15 dollars by the end of the year. If you like retail, there are 50 other companies with better prospects. Why throw away your money here?
