I fairly like working at Best Buy, easy $10 an hour as a starting job.(NYC) This is my first job and I got in due to my charisma I'm guessing because all the other hires had some form of previous experience. For the moment I'm staying only because of the discount. A sony tv that costs $3600 gets reduced to $1650 after discount. Managers give discounts on open box items to employees, that said i got my ipod touch 5th gen 32gb for $150. And beats and bose everything is 50% off. So if bose qc15 costs $300 you get it for $150. This discount is easily the best* in the industry. So I'd say it's pretty worth it, with all the money you save from discounts.


Don't list the price we get stuff for. Highly against SOP and can easily be fired for that. Also, check the accomendation for Sony L2E on that tv.

surprisingly my kingdom hearts shipped today had a backorder email a week ago saying they would cancel on the 30th if they couldnt find one guess i got lucky


Same here... I was half expecting it to get cancelled, but I just got the shipping e-mail. So, for anyone whose Kingdom Hearts 3DS DotD orders got put on backorder, looks like they just got a shipment in.

I work full time at a major insurance company. Been here for nearly a year and a half.. and you basically get paid as much as I do. TBH, I'd rather be working with electronics than dealing with insurance claims. :|


People will always have to have insurance...well, at least as long as we are alive they will. Gaming / electronics - dying a slow death. It will all be online or through online retailers. BB is going to do a Circuit City in the next 7 or 8 years unless they reinvent themselves. You will be further ahead staying in the insurance industry.

Now, if that is not what you want to do, then by all means do something else.

Oh, and $40 for a game that has been as that price (or lower) a number of times is not a DOTD unless you are Gamestop.

As an avid NHL player since 07, I can say this year's game isn't even worth $5 brand new. Wait for 14 and pray that it's even 1% better than this year's garbage.

I do not give 1 fucks 2 fucks red fucks blue fucks yellow fucks I'm about my green bucks

I'ma make a scene for my green bucks, I'ma get some red on my nina

Much to my surprise, Best Buy actually shipped my backordered Kingdom Hearts DDD today.

I feel ashamed that I am thinking about getting it haha. But why is this such a bad deal? Is it cheaper somewhere else?


$40 for a soon to be an outdated sports game isn't that great. I remember picking one up for $35 at TRU (It was part of a Buy 2 for $70 deal) during the lockout.

Funny because in an email last week they said it would be CANCELLED if they didn't get it in stock by the 28th

Agreed I still play NHL 11 so jumping to 14 will be worth it- or I can get 13 for 19.99 in a month or 2

No it was on sale for $40 at Target and if you pre order a game they take $20 off. Then later you can just return the preorder and get your dollar back if you really wanted to

whats ur problem dude? who cares? everybody pretty much knows this. we kno wat kind of discounts bby employees get. here ill list em for u. electronic retailers have terrible markups on pc and laptops so u only get 5 percent off. cables and such considerably better discounts. i remember car audio having some great discounts and labor u usually get about half off. open box stuff managers will work with u if u sold a lot of warranties or like u. videogames are shit discounts ten percent at most. bby employees have employee purchase accomodations as u just pointed out with huge discounts from manufacturers like sony intel harmon kardon monster cables etc.

Yo, what best buy in NYC do you work at? I go to the 44th street BB like 3 times a week. DO you work in the gaming section?

I too am wondering the same thing because I frequent the stores from Noho to Bryant Park. Always good to meet a fellow CAG and someone competent in these stores!

So is there any advantage to one platform vs. the other on Rocksmith? (360 vs. PS3)

I HIGHLY recommend Rocksmith at this price if you have a guitar laying around but never took the time to learn. It is a great teaching tool and you really feel like you are getting better as you play.

Hey guys, remember this thread? Yeah, me neither. Best Buy doesn't remember it either, nor does it remember how to have good video game deals.

I might pass, looking at some reviews I don't think this will hold up to my very fond memories and way too many hours with the N64 version.
