    Being an Ex-Employee of Frys, I'm pretty sure if you walked in to buy one at that price in the store that they won't have any in stock. I worked in the audio/video department and I don't know how many times people would come in with killer deals they found for a TV on the website that they haven't had in stock for months even when frys.com said our store had them. They just want you in the store, but by all means this does not mean I am correct....so might as well check it out for yourselves! Just don't get too mad if it turns out to be crap.

    If that is true, it is completely illegal and known as bait and switch.

    I take it you haven't shopped at Fry's before. I still go there but they are definitely known for some shady tactics from time to time. People mostly seem to go to kill some time and just look around.

    I wouldn't put it past them. They get sued on the daily.

    Fry's seems to be hurting, walked in last week, and at least 10 sales clerks asked if I needed help. One said "let me sell you something"....

    Haha yeah that'll happen when it is slow. The employees get paid 100% commission so if they don't sell, they don't make money.

    4 years ago I went to several Fry's in Texas since I had a paper printed add in hand for a "great price" on some RAM I wanted to give as a gift...everyone of the store employee's said they didn't have any but locked behind the display case at the last store I check they had 3 sets = they still wouldn't honor the price that I had on the printed ad that I was carrying with me = I walked out and ordered it on line with 3 day free shipping at ~20% cheaper...That was the last time I went into a Fry's while being in the states!

    Fry's ProTip: If it is on ad, it probably doesn't pay the employees any commission. So most employees will likely try and ditch you and move on to another customer.

    Have such retailers learned nothing from the Apple Store?

    Not a SINGLE frys in connecticut has one even in stock. What a bunch of con artists.

    Fry's is the worst electronic store imaginable.

    Nope, I have shopped at Fry's quite frequently in the past but where I live now....the nearest one is more than 250 miles away. I never really noticed any shady tactics. The only tactics I noticed was trying to get somebody to actually help you and then when I could, they were usually a dumba$$.

    Poor customer service is what drove Incredible Universe and Circuit City out the brick and mortar biz.
