Default Circuit City Bankruptcy

I've been using the CC credit card for a year or so, have racked up a whopping $25 in "rewards". Looks like it's time to order the reward certificate and use it b4 it's too late.

About the only thing I can find in that price range is the Element EOD4 Indoor/Outdoor Speakers, $24.99/pr. Probably junk, but reviews at CC site are OK. Maybe they'll work in my garage with my 10" subwoofer...

Here in Boston, Tweeter is checking out. This was the last straw, online buying has killed brick and mortar stores. The biggest loss for me is the traditional (used +) book store, the smell and the piles of books on the floor.

Don't worry, since buisnesses in this country no longer have the responsibility to make sound decisions and turn a profit to stay in buisness for themselves, I'm sure the government will bail them out too. They'll just need to take a number though.

From what I've read it was their inability to compete with Best Buy and Future Shop. Not a nice way to go.

I saw this looking through Scott's posts with entry trailing off at piles due to word count..I thought it might be going somewhere else because I was instantly reminded of this time I was at thrift store near ghetto Kroger in Cincinnati. I went around an isle to see a grown man taking a dump on the floor! ..sorry I couldn't help it. true story.

Got the $25 rewards certificate, just went online to spend it. Midday on a Sunday, and they're "updating" their site. Hmmm....
