Re: Best Buy no longer putting price tags on slipcovers?

Best Buy's target audience seems to be the people who just leave the discs lying around on the floor when they're not watching them. And yes, I HAVE complained to Best Buy several times about this but nobody cares- one response I got claimed that they came that way from the studios (their response was filled with spelling and grammatical errors.) Whenever I do buy something there and get that survey invitation on the receipt, I list the titles that I would have bought if they hadn't put their stickers right on them.

at thinking that stickers on slipcovers has any significant contribution to the decline of home media sales.

There may not be VAST numbers of people who care about slipcovers, but I keep mine and I care about how they look. I'm sure there are others who feel the same.

Re: Best Buy no longer putting price tags on slipcovers?

What's up with instore pickup now at BB?
Picked up Fantastic Beasts (3D) today. got this today and they have this new annoying new habit of putting hold stickers on the case/slipcover and they don't come off easy. And they take up the entire from cover. I do it there. If it doesn't come off standard release with slipcover then I'm having them get me a fresh copy. It's getting annoying and I hate to be one of "those" guys. I told her I want to give it as a present, like I should have to make a sheepish excuse. SteelBooks are always plastic wrapped so we're good there. True story, I got a new one for Moonlight standard release when this happened, saw when I was browsing around weeks later that same badly peeled stickered Moonlight on the new release display. No name thank god, but come on. Have some respect for your store and product. At least take the damn slip cover off and toss it. So stupid...

I hardly ever even go IN Best Buy anymore, and the few times I do I just walk out empty-handed and shaking my head. Nice that they put Tower and Virgin out of business first before deciding to royally suck.
