Don't Expect Recession Busting Prices At Best Buy This Holiday Season

I don't know if this is good or bad news. Best Buy's CEO Brian Dunn is predicting an optimistic holiday season and is preparing by adding more blue shirt employees. Positive stuff for the economy, but don't expect mouth-dropping prices.

Reuters reports that Best Buy does not plan to use "heavy discounts to fuel market share gains." And for the kicker:

"Dunn also doesn't expect to slash prices even if the holiday season gets off to a rough start."


All in all, this means there probably won't be too many "holy shiet" deals. We can still have some hope in Black Friday, but this makes me miss Circuit City, A LOT. [Reuters]
