The Charlottesville branch of Best Buy.
Another entry in the long list of things Chris owns but will never use.

The Best Buy in Charlottesville is where Chris spends yet more of his tugboat money on games, PSN cards and other PS3 accessories. On 22 September 2010, Clyde Cash leaked a zip file loaded with Chris's Best Buy invoices. Much like his sex store purchases, Chris appears to prefer buying things which involve a discount or promotion.

The grand total price of these documented items is $1,448.70 (GB£928; Can$1,468; €1,120). $501.19 of this was spent on PSN cards, $59.97 on Nintendo Points, and $62.93 on Netflix gift cards. The invoices show that Chris spent around $776 at Best Buy during 2009, although around $200 of this in unaccounted for - and he may have spent more as it is not known when he opened his Rewards account. Chris has saved $75 of your tax dollars through discounts, which does little to redeem his largely frivolous spending habits. Chris spent a total of $656.85 at BestBuy in 2010.

There is a record for what appears to be a canceled transaction on 9 February 2010, for a $19.99 Nintendo Wii 2,000 Points Card. It's possible that Chris's credit card was declined on this occasion, and the fact he didn't purchase anything from Best Buy for nearly a month after would indicate that this was the case.

Chris rips off Best Buy

In his e-mails with Jackie, Chris talks about working a scam that's long been popular among unscrupulous gamers: buy a game at a discount (in this case a $20 copy of Borderlands at Toys R Us) and return it to a different chain store that has yet to discount the game (in this case Best Buy, which gave Chris $40 and change in store credit for the return). Although though this may seem smart by Chris's standards, he immediately spent the trade-in credit and $3 in cash on more games, DVDs, and PSN trinkets.

Gas Chris wasted driving to Best Buy

Below are some rough calculations about how much gas Chris has wasted with his trips to Best Buy. The actual amount spent is likely more, as he may drive there regularly to browse or kick da HEXBox without spending any money. While Chris has previously mentioned that his mother pays for his gas, it doesn't change the fact that money was spent on gas that was ultimately wasted by Chris.

Driving distance to Best Buy Charlottesville 11.7 miles 19 km
Miles driven per trip 23.4 miles 38 km
Estimated city MPG of Son-Chu 23 MPG [1] 10.2 L/100km
Estimated gas price in Virginia $2.60/gal. 69¢/L
Number of trips we know Chris made 57
Total distance travelled 1,333.8 miles 2,166 km
Total gas used 57.99 gallons 219.52 litres
Total value of gas Chris wasted on trips to Best Buy: $150.77

Chris's dealings with Best Buy support

Included in the leaked documents were the contents of a support email Chris sent to Best Buy, regarding a "10 Dollar Certificate" which had been redeemed without his consent. While Chris got a pretty standard response to his email, we once again get a glimpse of what happens when you come between a manchild and his free money.

I had just logged onto My RewardZone account on the 21st of December to check on it, only to find my Points had been redeemed for a 10 Dollar Certificate WITHOUT my approval or Personal Action. It shows that the points were redeemed and the certificated printed on the 20th; I did not log in on the 20th at all. I think someone got into my account and redeemed my points and printed the certificate.I WANT MY 10 DOLLAR CERTIFICATE!Please respond quickly. Thank you.

Christian,

I apologize for the confusion. Your account is set up to automatically issue a certificate when you account reaches 250 points so it issued a $10 certificate automatically on Sunday. There is a 3-5 wait before the certificates can be printed so they will be ready on Friday.

Sorry for the inconvenience

Thank you for contacting Best Buy Reward Zone Have a good day
