    So I was in Best Buy the other day and saw some component cables for the Wii were in stock. $50 though! Sheesh!

    Today I was in Wal*Mart and saw the exact same brand of component cables for $20.

    Talk about price gouging!

    Thank you, you may now go on your merry way.

    Almost every accessory sold at best buy has an extra $30 tacked on. I know this because I just quit working at geek squad a few weeks ago. Best buy makes their money off of service and acessories.

    I remember when the site bestbuysucks.com had all kinds of complaints about bestbuy
    & how they rip people off buy over pricing & screwing you on refunds. But after Best
    buy took the owner of the site to court, the site is now just a crappy portal.

    Hmm... I might want to work at Best Buy. If what you say about employee discounts is true.
