Mail in Re-bait



Best Buy has made a major announcement that is sending shockwaves throughout the electronics retail industry. They announced that they will no longer offer mail in rebates within two years. This comes after the FTC stepped in and is beginning to enforce the rebate programs. Other major retailers, such as Circuit City and CompUSA are expected to follow suit. I would expect prices to be somewhat lower as a result.

Assuming your real name is Brad, you've got a nice blog here as well - and I notice that you're posting out of Hamilton, Ohio, which is near enough to my hometown of Glendale (like Bill O'Reilly, I came from the mean streets of that town).

You've got more bells and whistles on your blog, which is nice. I'm still learning that stuff.

Oh, and I've never been to a Best Buy. I'm sure they're good.

No mail-in-rebates? What the hell? Ah well. I don't use mail-in-rebates anyway.

HA, this is just like Honduras in 1993. Oh, trying to forget that little CIA "episode"?

I am still trying to figure out what happened to the oil in 1997. I guess I will add the "Honduras 1993 connection to Best Buy rebates" to my list of thing to research later.
