Posted in Best Buy by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2011

Wouldn’t you like to “future proof” your gadgets? Sure, we all would. And now we can, thanks to Best Buy’s Buy Back program. It will allow users to trade in their laptops, netbooks, tablets or smartphones for a percentage of the device’s original value. The company calls it “future proofing”. We call it, getting something for your old gadget, instead of just tossing it and getting nothing.

The Buy Back Program will start later this month and will cost $69.99 for laptops, netbooks and tablets. It’s $59.99 for mobile phones. When your device is covered, Best Buy will purchase the product back anytime within two years and you may receive up to 50 percent of the product’s original purchase price, paid back to you in the form of a Best Buy gift card, valid for six months.

If you are complaining about the Nexus S screen not being large enough for you, then Best Buy has something that they want to show you. A giant functional Nexus S that is on display in the store with a huge 42-inch display.

Best Buy CEO: Death of notebooks is “greatly exaggerated”

Posted in Best Buy by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2010

Best Buy chief Brian Dunn done a 180 and changed his tune on claims that the iPad cut notebook sales in half at his stores.

In a statement, he says that he did see “shifts in consumption patterns” towards the tablet but characterized it more as an “incremental opportunity” than the market redefining shift it first looked like. He compared his view on the death of notebooks to Mark Twain’s after the legendary false obituary. “The reports of the demise of these devices are grossly exaggerated,”.

Best Buy backs off the Samsung Gem

Posted in Best Buy by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2010

You might remember last week when the Samsung Gem was listed in the Best Buy buyers guide. It was listed as “coming soon”, giving us the impression that it was in fact coming soon.

But now Best Buy has issued a statement about the device, claiming that it made a mistake and that there is no official launch date for the Samsung Gem just yet. They mention nothing else about the phone. All we can do is wait for the next leak and hope it comes soon.

Posted in Best Buy by Conner Flynn on August 8th, 2010

There have been a ton of leaks up to this point, so it’s hard to believe that Verizon or Motorola have not yet acknowledged it’s existence. However Greg from North Carolina says that his local Best Buy has some of those leaked dummy units on shelves, along with some price tags.

Looks like the phone will launch at $199 with carrier subsidy and $599 without a plan. There’s still no solid confirmation of that August 12 release date, but we all know the score anyway.

Posted in Best Buy by Shane McGlaun on June 21st, 2010

The original Nook eReader that Barnes & Noble unveiled had integrated 3G connectivity for downloading books on the go. Many people found that they only downloaded books at home and wanted a cheaper device without 3D and Barnes & Noble have complied.

The WiFi only version of the Nook has landed on BestBuy.com. You can pre-order the device at BestBuy.com for $149.99 with delivery by July 3. The device is just like the original Nook sans 3G.

Best Buy advertising higher prices as sales?

Posted in Best Buy by Conner Flynn on May 24th, 2010

Just because you see something advertised as a sale, it does not make it a sale. Just like everything you read on the internet is not true. The Consumerist reports that Best Buy seems to have begun advertising some laptops at prices that are higher than their regular price. Then they go ahead and take it one step further by placing “as advertised” signs on the laptops in the store, giving consumers the impression that they’re getting a sweet deal.

No, that ain’t right. But shoppers also need to be alert and not so trusting. A tipster specifically mentions laptops like the Dell and HP models advertised for $649.99 and $699.99 in the ad pictured above, which are $20 and $50 higher than their regular price. Other previous laptops advertised at higher prices also now seem to have gone back to the regular price.
