Just doing my usual virtual cruise around the internets, seeing what is going on in the gaming news and all, and found THIS unfortunate article. Yes, I know it has the usual mumbo jumbo in the fine print, but isn't that a bit of a shady practice to do to your customers? I guess it was only a matter of time before chain stores went the way of the used car salesman/ credit card mogul. Truly sad, but a lesson in life it seems.
If I recall correctly, this isn't the first time that Circuit City has dealt the cards under the table, so to speak. Kind of breaks my heart, since I try my best to look at them with a positive attitude for the most part. I usually reserve the barbs for that unnamed video game specialty store, but it seems that CC is starting to slide further down the dark path. It's a shame, really. I have nothing but good things to say about the local Circuit City store. Pleasant staff, reasonable prices on games, and a halfway decent selection of goods.
But enough about that. The moral of the story kids, is make sure to do a little research (that means read carefully) before falling for those too good to be true offers that dangle in front of you. That, and a little common sense will save you a world of disappointment.
As much as we would all love to trust the one's that peddle the goods we so adore, a little caution is in order.
