Not directly trading related, but I am sure some of you occasionally shop and need cables. I was in the market for a whole new home theater so a priced it out online at a reputable internet dealer then walked into a Best Buy to see how close they could come since I would rather buy locally for potential return and service problems. The first Best Buy basically blew me off and knocked off $500, then I went to another and - to my surprise - they actually matched the online price (a drop of $2k from list) and threw in delivery and some cables. It just goes to show that haggling and some leg work does pay off. I also needed some network and HDMI cables so I priced out 3 HDMI, 4 cat 6 network cables, and 1 crossover cable at local stores. The total price with tax was about $291. Then I priced out those same cables online at Monoprice and the total was $18.51 plus $7.82 shipping. That is not a misprint; it was $291 at the store and $26.33 total at Monoprice for the same thing. The lesson is don't ever buy your cables from a store.
