Best Buy (makes more than half of its profits from selling extended warranties, based on company data and my estimates. If you've been in a store recently, that might not surprise you. This dependence on warranty profits suggests that Best Buy's business model might not be sustainable over the long term.

While others might not penalize Best Buy for being largely dependent on warranty sales, it does bother me. It's another indication that Best Buy's core business isn't viable -- I'm not sure Best Buy would even exist without the profit stream from warranties. Second, it's my opinion that extended warranties aren't worth the cost (Consumer Reports agrees), and I'm skeptical of a long-term business model that depends on such a consumer-unfriendly tactic.

Best Buy has slowly been built back up by CEO Hubert Joly and he has smartly positioned the retailer for long-term success.

Only real advantage this state has is that it let's you hold tech in your hands. Ppl make big decisions based off what is in their hands.

Renew Blue continues to pay off on cost side, and new store within a store and growth of the connected home category will position them as a key leader in new and existing CE categories.

There is only one viable nationwide electronics chain, and it's Best Buy. Even when the economy slows, it passes the Saturday Night sales test. While I think there are niche sellers that can impact individual aspects of its sales, its big box appearance with geek armies of sales staff who seem to love their jobs makes it an appealing long-term commitment.

Big Box store with high overhead getting taken behind the woodshed by online retailers like AMZN. Is customer service enough? Might have to go to a smaller format and drop the video games, movies etc.

AWFUL customer service and no real online presence make this company a loser for many years to come. I would recommend shopping anywhere else to anyone except my enemies.

This is my first thumbs down and it makes me kind of sad. But I fail to see how this company has any competitive advantage. Amazon undercuts Best Buy and the staff has absolutely zero knowledge on their products. It's only a matter of time before doom and gloom. Literally the only positive note is gaining business from people who are too impatient to wait for shipping from an online store.

It's a hard sell to see them righting the ship and returning to growth.

Their market is shrinking, they have enormous fixed costs and many of their products have razor thin margins that are getting squeezed ever tighter.

Best Buy needs to rapidly change its business model to compete with the big guns in the industry which is basically dictated by Amazon
