Because I like events and Best Buy throws a heck of a Grand Opening party. I arrived at 6:30am and am about 25th in line. The first people in line arrived at 2:30am; they came straight from the bar after closing time. I’ve met the people in front of me; they’re here to try for the chauffeured ride to today’s University of Minnesota vs. Northwestern game (everyone wearing maroon and gold is eligible to win that). They’re big football fans; the guy traveled to Iowa last weekend to watch the Gophers play.
Free breakfast is at 7:30am, doors open at 9am. Wrist bands and bags containing gift cards go out sometime between those two. One of the first 300 people will get a $1000 card, everyone else gets $10, free breakfast and first access to sale items.
If I win the $1000 gift card I’m going to buy camera equipment. Or a PS3. Yeah, maybe a PS3. But probably a new lens and some filters. Oooo…or an iPad. I kinda want a free iPad.
What would you buy?
