    Now that they basically match amazon pricing it makes no sense to wait 3 days for an item to ship just go to $BBY and pick it up. I've bought a TV, headphones, and a few other things from $BBY all matched the same price as amazon...

    What good is having higher revenue and lower profits? That's what their price matching strategy will generate.

    $BBY's cost cutting measures should help stabilize the margins... if I'm not mistaken they have been in the process of shrinking store sqft averages, adjusting employment #s, etc...

     

    Assuming that's still going on they probably will see a net increase... I don't own $BBY and haven't followed them much I'm just a fan of $BBY and am pulling for them to beat this transition they are going through.
