We heard about this in a meeting. I believe Australia is supposed to get one within the next year.

I like bestbuy, mainly because where I am at, there is only 2 places that sells decent electronics. Best Buy, and Micro Center. They have other stores like Ultimate, but that's far away, then there's the Wal-Mart, and Target, but they never seem to sell what I want.

That's good for you because you can get your local Best Buy to price match against Micro Center and get another 10% on top of that.

I Suppose that's a catch 22 - Finally getting some larger electronics retailers BUT Getting Geek Squad.

Ahh, The memories of Price Matching at Best Buy... Some folks don't think about Tax and Shipping costs (Online) when coming in wanting a price match. Good times, Good times. Most of the folks that came in with price matching inquiries ALWAYS had an ad to a questionable online shop that I've never heard of.

Example- Excuse Me, I'd like to get that Nikon D80 please. Here's a price match for $199.....Of course it was an Ebay item. Had a lot of fun with.
