the Eid "holiday" celebrated by muslims is the day they hand slaughter goats or sheep - a ritual that must be performed in a very specific way with a knife. I was in Morocco one year during the "festival" - which there is no festival - just the sound goats and sheep bleating from every direction & the walking stairs and pathways had blood running down like water from rain -- why in the hell would BB think it is appropriate to include this day in their greetings --- almost all their customers from this time of year are christmas shoppers & probably none for EId -

Seems I'm right about EID...excellence in death.
Believe it or not the US Post Office has at least 2 EID Commemorative stamps!
BB likes to send bill at last minute, disallows payment in person for late charge loading!
Just pay cash or non-BB charge plate to avoid getting gouged late fees or pay well before bill comes without a statement...
Good Prices...may beat or match competetors.

In the past years, Best Buy was an outstanding Company. With the new owner, they rip off everyone that they can!
Use BB prices to get a better price at a Store that cares for it's customers.
If you support Ripping off Customers, shop BB.

Actually this is a good day to celebrate. It is a rememberence of the fact that Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son, but God provided a ram. It is a common thread between the two religions. The problem with any greeting though, if not understood, is a vain wish. The only reason these people are doing it is because they want the business. It is not out of sincerity or a heart of pure motive.

I've never like best buy because of they're rude sales pesonnel, and restrictive return policy. Thank you, Best Buy, now you've help me to shop elsewhere, I understand that Tehran could use a lot of Flat screen TVs.

Keep it American. I like things that keep us all under one roof, and this ain't it.

This started last Thanksgiving??!! Most people are soft, shortsighted and greedy. Don't care as long as it's cheap and easy. That's why this country voted in MaoBama and why we are in the state we are in.
