Not so much the money, but where they think they can get away with charging more than they have it advertised for (like no one would even notice) really ticks me off !

I really can live without the upgrade on the monitor. I may just save a little more and get a LCD TV with a PC input. For the little bit of difference in price, at least it can double for a TV too!

You are much better off buying electronics on line. People like to think they are getting the best price at Circuit City or Best Buy, but that is rarely the case.

Here's a couple of sites to use:

http://www.mysimon.com/

http://www.pricegrabber.com/

Plus you usually save yourself the tax and depending on where you buy from, some companies have free shipping.

It's obvious that Circuit City is run by a bunch of idiots.... They JUST finished a brand new store on Route 22 in North Plainfield, NJ... When I tell you finished, I mean like, all they had to do was bring in the merchandise and place it on the shelves. It even looked like they rushed the construction to be ready for this Christmas... Had to cost well over $1 million to retrofit the building.... Needless to say, it never opened....

Thats an old ABC warehouse trick. They have tons of models that are exclusive to them.

I hate that!!!

Be careful of the so called 0% financing deals to. Bought an $1800.00 dollar computer at Best Buy a few days before Christmas. I received my first bill Jan 18th that was due Feb 2nd and it had a late charge and interest. They said I never paid my Jan 2nd bill. I sent them a check for the price of the purchase and told them to stick the rest of the bill up-t-a$$

I was given a HP printer for Christmas that was purchased at CC. It wasn't the model that I wanted so I took it back to exchange it. They didn't have the one I wanted, but assured me that I had until the end of January to return it or exchange it. I went back on the 30th and they told me there was nothing they could do because they had been taken over by the liqidator. Now, I have a printer that I really don't want.
That Sucks.....

Just to add a little more to the info already shared. A lady was purchasing a flat screen tv and asked the cashier, "if this thing doesn't work, I can bring it back, right?". She was told all sales are final and no returns at all. If it doesn't work, she would have to take it up with Sony......
