  • 5. What is Your BEST Buy? Find your best price, Google search, read the reviews...& ask people! ...honestly though? i usually end up buying from Amazon.com because i like the reviews and the price is usually only a few cents off from a 15 min search for a lower price....and if the thing does NOT work the customer service is so good BEST BUY ALERT: sometimes you gotta just have it NOW! Check the internet price before you go and if it’s a big purchase PRINT IT OUT! - Then go to Customer Service to make sure they MATCH their own price!
