    So I used to work for Best Buy, quit about a year ago. Best Buy has a private auction website that you can register for when you are an employee. Once you register, you can invite friends and family.

    Basically what the site is, is a way for Best Buy warehouses to clear out either overstocked and discontinued items, refurbs, etc. There is a mix of new, refurbished, and store demo items...all are tested and of quality. I bought myself a shelf display Airport Express that had been locked up behind a glass case with all booklets and CD's in new packaging for $45 (retail is a bit over $100). You can find a variety of shit on there and it changes all the time since it's an auction website. I already hooked l4zy up with an invite awhile back as well as a few of my friends.

    I'm about to get off the forums for a bit, but I'll check back later tonight and I'll give the first 3 people that genuinely have a use for this an invite...all you have to do is post an e-mail (or PM). But keep in mind other WMDers might actually have a desire to spend some after Christmas cash so if you don't really intend to buy anything, please don't post.

    I'll keep reqs like THT, must be Jan 09 or sooner and >100 posts

    Also, depending on how many invites it lets me do, I may just send as many as possible, but I can't promise anything

    This sounds interesting. I don't have a huge need for stuff, but it's hard to pass up good deals. If you don't have some guys that need it, I'll give it a go.

    Thanks man.

    You know, when I worked at BestBuy I reemed corporate with an email. They make that sound likes it's such a great deal for employees only... It's the same damn site but different skin as cowboom.com, they just make it sound like they're hooking you up. The bids you're placing, are even against those at Cowboom.

    If it's the same site then this is pointless, but I'll be glad to send "invites" out if you guys want....it isn't looking like there is a limit on how many people I can send out

    If you still have an invite I could really use one. I just graduated from academy an have to move 1800 miles tomorrow so I can report for duty on the 30th. Sold pretty much everything I had so I could get packed in
    time and I'm gonna need a tv etc.... When
    I get down there

    Thanks man! I used to work at that hell hole about 6 years ago. Only reason I stayed for a whole year was for the discount.
