Are you a Jill or Buzz?

Then Best Buy is looking for you. I am one of the cheapest people on this planet and I imagine the security people at Best Buy will someday kick me out of their stores because I only make purchases when things are on sale or there is some kind of discount available to me. I don't play the return-buy-opened-box game or other 'dishonest' games described in the article but I do ruthlessly and relentlessly track down bargains or the best prices on things and use coupons and other discounts offered to me.

I recently waited 3 months until a gas grill was marked down on an end-of-season clearance then asked how many of them the store had to determine the likelihood of further markdowns and bought the thing on Senior Citizen's Day at 10% off their marked down price. A total savings of nearly $60 on a $270 purchase when taxes are included. Best Buy would have earmarked me as a persona non grata in about 3 nanoseconds after that purchase hit their computers. That would make me extremely happy.
