I have a $143.42 credit to Best Buy!

19 replies 6 views Edited May 5, 2012

I was out relaxing by the pool today and all of the sudden the right speaker in the Beats By Dre I bought in July of 2010 went out on me. Luckily, I purchased the two year warranty for $20.

Best buy no longer carries the same model of the headphones I bought, and I didn’t want a crappier pair that was $40 less then the ones I bought. So I received a gift card instead for the entire amount of my purchase (excluding the warranty).

I must say that $20 + tax was an excellent purchase as I ended up “renting” some quality headphones for about $10 a year.

Now, Best Buy is one of my least favorite stores and I have ~$143 to spend there. I have no idea what to buy, but I need some recommendations. Do you guys think you could help me out?

Max Payne 3? Dragon's Dogma? Sniper Elite V2? I'm not entirely sure about other games being launched in the next few days

Game-wise, I've played Battlefield 3 for over 170 hours and I still love it. I know you hate Starhawk, but if you wanna spend recklessly I say go for it. I'll be reviewing the game after it comes out so I can tell you what I think too. It'd be nice to play with ya buddy. If you got one of those you'd have $80 left which is pretty good.

You could also pre-order Starhawk, then if you don't like it sell it used and give the buyer the pre-order bonus codes for extra if you don't use them.

I got some Bose earbuds for $90 and they've been serving me well. Renting headphones sounds interesting.

Thanks for the recommendations so far guys! But I must say that I’m not really looking for games to play. But I do greatly appreciate recommendations both of you sent me.

@Butters - “Renting” Headphones is fantastic. It’s a lot better then spending $150-$300 and then having them break after a year or two.

lolz then you be trollin' asking here :b

I know you don't like it, but I'd love it if you got Starhawk. I guess all I can say is go to the store and look for anything you can afford. Buy a deluxe mini fridge for your dorm?

If I had that much cash given to me to waste in one store, video games wouldn't even be one of my ideas.

No butters, this is a serious issue. I don’t shop at Best buy for two reasons: The first being the place sucks, the second being I don’t buy many electronics.

Which is why I need help. What can I buy at “Worst” Buy that I can find useful or entertaining?

@gs94 - I wasn’t given to me. It’s my money being returned to me thanks to the warranty on a product I bought that ended up being defective.

You could by a small 42in flat screen TV. I don't know how much those cost.

I'd find a mini fridge entertaining. You know Best Buy sells refrigerators right? Maybe it has a freezer too.

But yeah idk. Buy Starhawk or go to the store and look lol
