Default Very Interesting Trip to Best Buy--Stiletto's in STOCK

Was on the road today and stopped into a Best Buy about 50 miles away from home looking to catch a glimpse of either a Soloist Dock or a Car Dock for the Stiletto. I found the Satelitte area and they had hardly anything in stock--only a sportster 4 and the new Starmate 4's. I finally found someobodyto talk to about the docks---turns out, they had 2 soloist docks but neither were open and on display and they had 4 Stiletto's in a locked cabinet that you couldn't even see through---they weren't even out on display!!!! I asked about the Car Dock and of course they didn't have any but they did a check for me and their inventory said that they had 7 availalbe in a warehouse and I ordered one and it is shipping via UPS or USPO and will be here by Monday.

It was just strange because the webiste shows NONE in stock in the whole region, yet on this special order called "Customer Fulfillment" they had 7 in a warehouse. I hope this wasn't a bullhsit deal but I'm not that familiar with Best Buy because I don't have one where I live, only a CC for me to shop at.

If anyone is interested in getting their hands on a Stiletto, the Store was in Altoona, PA, store number 1015.

Now that is just hitting below the belt, Hockey Fan.

You're supposed to say "best buy will rush that to you and you'll have it tomorrow and it will work 100%."

You do not have a best buy where you live. I thought they planted them next to CC like Lowe's does with Home Depots. I think we have like 5-10 within 30 miles.

No docks in our Eastern PA stores either but I did see the the stereo docks.

No. Somehow, Best Buy has not yet moved in here. I prefer CC anyway so I don't really care.

I was just shocked to see 4 Stiletto's sitting in a locked cabinet under a display case. What kind of idiot puts a hot item in a place where nobody can see the damn thing.

Held for people? No. They have a display case that, has a frosted glass cabinet that you can't really see through. When they opened it to check to see if they had any car kits, I saw them and there were no names on them, no post it notes saying "hold for ______." There was also a few Sportster 4's in the cabinet too.

When I went to pick mine up (I called up the day they got them in) they opened a case that had several inside and they were all being held for people that had called or pre-ordered. The guy at CC said they can't keep them in for more than 24 hrs so they all go to people that call when the truck gets there or that pre-pay.
