I love how that article says Best Buy is only beat out by Amazon because Amazon doesn't have to charge sales tax. Bullshit. Look up any TV Best Buy carries. I would put down money that Amazon has the same model with free shipping for at least $200 less. I've used Best Buy to look at my last three TVs and then purchased them for hundreds less on Amazon. Games are less, movies are less, computers are less. I can't think of one thing that Best Buy charges less for.

My family's had bad luck getting TV's online: arriving either physically damaged or just plain-old DOA. So we tend to use brick-and-mortar stores for them.

However I don't tend to use BestBuy. There are a couple of small places nearby that offer pricing pretty close to Amazon for the stuff I've looked at (even after tax/delivery). No fedex/UPS/etc... they just deliver it in a van from the store if I want.

And I feel better that if there's a problem it's less of a hastle than dealing with an online place.
