Wait can't you get any electronic device free if you just buy my....Oh sorry, I was reading that on Flebay...

50% seems like a pretty big markup on electronics..

Speakers are like 50% off thats true. But everything else is not that marked up. Except for accessories. Now THAT'S a markup.

I weep knowing how much that stuff is marked up.

$25 printer cable (i think it was $25...could been 20)

Employee price: $8.50

Ouch.


I miss getting half off on my media storage.


The really sad part is that furniture has like a 75% mark-up.

Phone accessories - 70-80% off
Computers - 10% off
