I usually stay well clear of Best Buy (AKA, Worst Buy), but I needed something specific and every place I looked charged the same price and there's one around the corner from my office.
I went at a good time so I could get the item, and walk directly to a cashier (this is amazing if you've never been in a BB before. The lines are normally long enough to make people walk away from impulse purchases).
She gave me the extended warranty speech as expected, but also did something unexpected: after I'd swiped my card and signed the screen, she asked to see the card. I figured she was actually going to check the signature, but instead she enter the code from the back used in card not present transactions. I have never seen that done in a face to face transaction before. I almost said something like, "of course you aren't going to save that number in violation of credit card required practices, right?", but kept quiet since she'd snuck it by me and it was entered already. I don't know how significant that is, but I feel slightly unsettled.
I'll learn this time.
It's brief because it's BlackBerry
