Stick it to circuit city

I mentioned my new receiver a few days ago.

So, circuit city sells it to me for 500. When I bought it, I asked the guy if there were any deals he could offer me. No luck.

On a whim, I check out what it sells for on their website.

$499.99 - $75 discount = $424.99

WTF?

So I go back to the store, mention this, and they give me back 110% of the difference, or $82.50.

It irks me that they basically know this is store policy (many things on their site are discounted from list like this), so I'm suggesting everyone use this method on a regular basis.

That'll teach them to pray on the unsuspecting non-online shopper!
