Best Buy gift cards

Postby Yoda » Thu Nov 02, 2006 1:22 pm

So from our credit card rewards, we got $700 in Best Buy gift cards... What would you recommend?

My choices so far (don't laugh since my wife has a say in this):

1. Wine cooler
2. Over the range microwave
3. GPS navigation system
4. Cheap , crappy little laptop
5. Xbox 360 plus games
6. Wait for Wii

Any other suggestion would be helpful.

I'd say the Wii since it seems so unique and I probably wouldn't buy it myself unless I had the motivation of a gift card; at only $250 bucks, it would leave plenty left over.

If you're wife shoots you down on video games, you have to shoot her down on the wine cooler; they're practically useless. Just put your wine on a stand in the kitchen. Besides, only white should be served chilled, and even then, just slightly. I pop it in the fridge about a half hour before I want to drink it.
If you're a battery, you're either working or you're dead....

Unless there was something that I absolutely needed, I'd most likely go on a CD and DVD buying spree.

Hold onto them and buy an HD DVD or Blue Ray player once the winner of the battle is determined.

I'd sell it to ACS for 350 cash!

$700 would be a good chunk towards a new television (if you don't already have one). ;-D

Christmas is next month. Buy a few gifts?

For $700, you could actually get a pretty decent laptop. Not sure what prices are where you are, but laptops are at great prices here in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.

Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Me and the wife love our wine cooler. Holds 8 bottles at a frosty 48 degrees, and looks stylish too. ;-D

Personally I would snag a Wii with the money and save the rest for other people's x-mas gifts.

I gotta, gotta get a Wii.. I need to play Twlight Princess asap. X-I

I can't deal with the suspense!!! I think I'm gonna freeze myself for 3 weeks until it comes out. It's a matter of life or death.

I've already come to terms with the fact that I'm hopelessly out of the loop, but at the risk of outing myself as non-hip...what is a Wii?
