I am not sure if this is an enigma, or the BONEHEADS at Best Buy realized their GAFFE, but they seem to have gone back to the way OPEN BOX items should be sold.
Remember over last summer 2006(I think, it may have been sooner) Best Buy went to the policy of charging FULL PRICE on an Open Box item, but you got a "nice
" BB gift card towards a future pourchase.
Whoopty F'ing Do!! Not only am I now paying full price for something that has been used to death most likely(not always, but on TV's, ABSOLUTELY), but I get a Gift card for a future purchase.
Managers, or salespeople, would not place the gift card price towards the OB buy to lower the price. Drop Dead!
No thanks. I stop getting ANY Open Box buys at Best Buy, and it appears that others did the same. Got them at Circuit City, or elsewhere. They didn't have their heads up their asses at other places(talking about corporate).
Well over the last week(at least near me in NW Pennsylvania, and NW Ohio) the Best Buys have GONE BACK to the original way of doing things.
Lowering the price on Open items, period. None of this Gift card crap.
Seems to me that BB wasn't selling anything on their OB items here or anywhere due to that policy change.
Now that they have gone back, I am hoping it will stay that way.
Especially if they do that additional 30% off Open box(printable coupon from website usualyy) items like they used to do over the last few summers before the dumb policy change.
Anyone else notice this in there area?
I hope it is back to stay, but who knows.
