If there's 3 or less of an item in stock at a Best Buy store, then it may show as out of stock. Your best bet is to check your closest BB store for stock first and if they are out of it, then you can just return it in store.
Has anyone ordered this from Bestbuy.com?
If so can you please let me know if they used a shipping box or not.
So I got my PlayStation 3D Display today. I have to say I am extremely disappointed with Bestbuy.com for not packaging this in a SHIPPING BOX!
It's totally obvious Sony made these to be displayed in a retail store and NOT to be durably shipped across the country. They are paper thin glossy cardboard with no styrofoam whatsoever.
Is this common practice for Bestbuy.com to slap a shipping label on merchandise and throw it in the mail? Do they do the same thing with PlayStation systems, toasters, etc? If so...Remind me never to shop at BB again!
Anyway, I haven't even opened the thing.. It looks like it was dragged through a swamp the last couple of miles to my house. The box is trashed and there are huge labels all over the front and back of it. The total lack of care taken with this is just sad.
It's my understanding that larger TV boxes (sized 40" and up) are designed in such a way that makes them its safe for shipping, but this doesn't look like one of those boxes!
I ordered one of these from Newegg.com a couple months ago (For $199) and it arrived in a proper shipping box and I sort of expected the same treatment from a large company such as Bestbuy.
Also, I noticed it says "When mailing merchandise to our return center, your only option is to receive a credit for your purchase."
A CREDIT?! On my Credit Card or for use with BestBuy?
I checked my local store for stock on these and they are sold out, as they also appear to be online. I seem to be screwed here. :(
When did Bestbuy get taken over by the Mafia?
But have you actually tried opening it to see if the display works, even though the box looks like crap? You'd be surprised how durable flimsy cardboard is at protecting the items inside.
