    Default I'm such a flake--Finally bought the WiFi Nook from Best Buy today

    and got the $25 gift card. Now I just have to wait until December to gift it to my kiddo, and hope she doesn't give me a reason not to give it to her!

    But the best news, that there were TWO people there who were also buying the Nook, and they didn't even know about the gift card offer. Color me shocked. The customer service rep was racing back and forth trying to help us all.

    I do wonder though why they decided to buy the Nook from Best Buy if they didn't know about the gift card offer, because our BN store is literally right across the parking lot from the Best Buy store. Hmmm...

    Giving it to my daughter you mean? I think so. She and her friends got in trouble in school this past week for being rowdy and using foul language in the presence of teachers , so I'm a little peeved at her right now. She's a cheerleader, so she has her own motivations for keeping her grades up, but she knows that her scholarship AND citizenship grades will need to be excellent, or she's not getting the Nook.

    It's sitting right here on my desk in plain view, with the gift card propped up against it, so she sees it every time she comes into my bedroom. Nice little reminder, I think.

    Maybe because Best Buy offers a 30 day return policy, instead of BN's 14 day policy?

    I purchased a nook from Best Buy yesterday and was told that the reader had only a 14 day return policy. The 30 day return policy didn't apply for this item.

    I purchased mine from Best Buy on August 30. The guy told me 30 days. I just looked at the back of my receipt and it says 14 days for desktop and laptop computers, monitors,projectors,camcorders,digital cameras, and radar detectors. 30 days for all other products.

    That's interesting! Didn't know that, had just seen a lot of people say the return policy was longer there. As it turned out, the Best Buy didn't have the WiFi models hubby and I wanted as in store stock, so we ended up getting ours from BN.

    Either way, we were going to do the hour+ drive up to the Tri-Cities to look at the various readers between Target's offerings and BN. Neither the Kindle or Sony displays at Target excited us, though at least the Sony display let you actually work with the reader. The Kindle display was just a kind of rotating wallpaper covering the features. BN definitely had the best display, where you could handle and operate the reader to get a feel for it.
