    Amazing discounts on accessories like cases and cables. Hardware discounts aren't much but if you're chummy with a Manager they'll sometimes give a you a nice deal.

    The best thing is that you can get accessories for dirt cheap. The worst thing, is that you barely get a discount on electronics, movies, and music.

    I love our discount. Of course there is not a great discount on prime things like apple, sony, large tv's etc... But for small accessories and other things its great.

    Not all the things are discounted but any accessories will have a 70% + discount, most TVs, printers, headphones, peripherals.
