Absolute cheapest thing at Best Buy? (Need .01 filler)

I'm going to Best Buy tomorrow, and plan on getting something with RW certs. Of course, I have $10 in certs, and what I want to get is $9.99, and they don't let you use the certs for less than what they are worth. So, does anyone know what the cheapest thing is at the store? I remember one time I just figured I'd get a candy bar on the way out, but even that was like over $1.

i doubt you are going to find anything that is less than $1. you can't just suck it up and pay the $1?

Gum or TicTacs? should be about .50

Sometimes there are promo discs listed as $0.01. I picked up a 300 promo back before the movie's release that was that price.

Well, of course I can, but it's the principle, I want to pay as little as possible :P

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....s&nrp=15&iht=n

See if that link works. That's absolutely everything on BestBuy.com, organized from cheapest to most expensive. Now you just have to hope your store has some of them in stock so you can price match.

I hear even the website has the ability to strip your dignity and suck out your soul. I wonder if that is worth a penny to use as the filler?

That actually is really helpful
In the future, I can order what I want for in-store pickup, and order the cheapest thing with free shipping (since I'm a RW Silver member). Thanks!

You should do what I do every time I have this problem (twice in the past month). I go to the register with my $10 coupon and $9.99 item and ask them to ring it up at $10. They price adjust it up on the spot and I walk out with out something I didn't want. Takes all of 10 seconds.

Actually, "I walk out without something I didn't want" really was correct... except for the space i put between "with" and "out".
