If you are thinking about pre-ordering from 800.com

Be careful:
I posted this in the store forum, but I thought it was worthwhile to post here as well.

800.com in deep trouble
Read this on F___Company. I wonder if there are any 800.com people still monitoring this board and would like to comment:

"Rumor has it 800.com laid off around 24 people -- 18%. Also... changed return policy to 7 days, stopped price-matching policy, and stopped selling gift certificates (prolly don't wanna deal with the payout hassles/bad karma after they go outta business...)."

I looked over the site and they definitely:

1.) Stopped selling Gift Certificates
2.) Return policy is now 7 days. Pretty POOR......

I used to love 800.com. They always had great deals and good prices on DVDs, web coupons, free popcorn, and good customer service.

But, I think everyone will agree -- that among reputable stores, it's the final price that counts. And that's what has hurt 800.com.

I haven't placed an order with 800.com in over a year due to the fact that I can do a 15-second search and find the same exact product much cheaper.

And this should be a lesson to other companies out there: Don't price yourself out of the market!
