The site allows you to have the item shipped to your home or you can choose store pick-up to avoid paying shipping and handling fees. If your order is at least $35.00 or higher, you get free shipping also. For that reason, BestBuy’s shipping and handling definitely played a major role in my decision in purchasing the TV from their website. Although I have never purchased the warranty on TV’s, their price range seems very fair ranging from $169-$299. One of the big reasons I like the BestBuy.com site is they don 't seem to push a bunch of similar items at you with every click and search. Furthermore, BestBuy online gives you significant information for each product purchased. Plus, they have customer reviews for nearly all the products I looked at.
