    Well it finally happened.
    I went into Best Buy (shudder) yesterday to check to see if the actually had something they had advertised.
    While watching the Final Fantasy trailer on TV, I was approached by a salesman(?) who proceeded to tell me "we are not on commission".
    That's it, I've finally HAD IT!
    "What does that mean and why am I always told that?" I asked.
    "Well we are here to give information and our competitors are only there to sell you something, that is why they hang around." He said.
    So I looked him right in the eye and I said "So you actually don't care if I buy anything or not?"
    He replied "Yes, that's right I don't care if you buy anything."
    After he answered the question I think he realized what he had said and hung his head and skulked off.
    How does this store stay in business? There is nothing in there that I cannot get elsewhere for less money!
    Truely amazing.

    Hi Brian,
    That link you gave seems to be for VHS, not DVD. The code does work though. I searched for the DVD version on their site and couldn't find it. Anyone else have any luck?
