I wonder what tidbits would be sold at Home Depot and at Best Buy ? Powerstrips, UHF splitters ?

I am happy with the change, and being that I am a Silver member, I still get a 60 Day Return.... :)

Wow - you must buy a lot there FF. I've been different levels at BB but very hard to maintain those levels. They want constant buying to stay at some of their levels, certainly not enough ROI for me to buy that much from them all the time.

ROTFL!

Yep, I tried to take advantage of this new policy at BB when it first made news (back in January or February, I think?).

Price-matching aside, the customer (dis)service was so appalling, I fled the scene.

Nothing has changed about THAT aspect of their business.

I'd rather drive the few extra miles to MicroCenter, or to another brick-and-mortar, or to "showroom".

(I probably don't buy a fraction of the stuff you geeks and experts do, though.)

JMHO

Best Buy sells appliances, but I'm not sure if Home Depot does...

Yeah I have been a Silver Member for about 2 or 3 years now, I do buy a lot, but trust me its not all my merchandise, I do a lot of work on the side, and help other folks with there purchases, and if they don't have a points card and don't want one, they put their purchase on my points card.... :)

Many years ago, I used to work at Fry's Electronics fixing computers for customers. I heard all of the 'complaining' I needed to when I was there... :P

Yeah, I remember my parents having one when I was a kid. Their card must be in the same condition that yours is in. :lol:
