    They charge you for the taxes on your paycheck.

    It was far better years ago. Discounts are not near what it used to be.

    5% above cost on most purchases! Works great with accessories since they have the highest markup, but not great on the big ticket purchases since they are sold as close to cost as possible. Downside: can't be used with other coupons and you don't get MyBestBuy rewards points with your purchases unless you pay with a Best Buy credit card.

    The discount is great depending on the product you're purchasing.

    They offered products for the price they got it from suppliers. Apple products were, surprisingly, not marked up very much at all so not much discount there. SUPER CHEAP off-brand collateral items, like AUX cords, HDMI cables, anything Belkin, Griffin, etc. Great deals on certain items, which you qualified for by passing a certain number of online lessons on stuff in-store. I got a $200 pair of over-the-ear headphones for like $30.

    5% above cost on most items. Some vendors like Apple and Bose don't discount

    It is not constant. Depends on the product. You will find out at the register when you are buying it and sometimes there is no discount.(No apple products what so ever)
