    So I was at best buy today..

    And picked up a new toy

    http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/5964/dscn04704ii.jpg


    I changed the price on a pair of head phones from $59.99 to $19.99 and it worked >_>

    I put it back where i found it (near the PSP games) and my friend looked at me and he started walking around with it.. Everyone that worked there just passed right by us, manager and everything and didnt say shit... so he took it and gave it to me!

    Does this make me a bad person?


    Maybe i'll go pick up one 250GB HDD's for dirt cheap :3

    I was going to buy them at that price and i saw the gun so i uploaded a price change for the headphones into their database and bingo, it worked.

    Dood, you could get into some serious shit over that... those scanners are NOT cheap and they will hunt your ass down for something like that.

    It's not like I'm stupid enough to go to BB and price down shit down and rip them off, I don't have the balls to do that.



    o man I just checked online, the gun goes for over $500+...


    I feel like a criminal now

    I use one of those stupid things all day at work. You must've gotten lucky and had someone already been logged in on it, because you have to have a username and password to generally function the thing; and even then after you sign on, pending where you work is what they give you for access.

    It's typically under a Misc MU/MD function (Miscellaneous Markup/Markdown) category. I have that ability, but I can only account for damaged goods/throwaways, I can't actually lower prices >.>

    wow zigma. wow. i love you.

    i work at best buy, that is called a telxon (pronounced telzon) gun and is used for sign price audits, downstocking reports, etc... basically, the bane of any BB employees existence. you fucking pissed off a shit ton of inventory people by taking that im positive because there are never enough for people to use. (2-3 per store max depending on size).

    problem is to get the full use of the gun you have to have access to the back because you can print out your own legit tags with it from the computer in the warehouse.

    fucking sell that shit on ebay and laugh at the fuckers at best buy everytime you go in there from now on. its a bullshit company that fucks employees to make all their profits.

    kudos my good man.

    Our store (Wal-Mart) has about 15 or so of them, if not more. We have portable printers to make labels so there is no need to go to the back to print them out. Unless of course you need a label that's larger than the printer, or you're printing out an entire modsheet of them.

    Yep, good ol' Telxon, don't ask me how, but managed to get 3 of those whoppers back in dept16 the other day. Now how we pulled that off I don't know >.> Then one day we had 1 Telxon and 3 printers >O

    I used to work in a grocery store as a manager, we only had about 3 for the whole store. Never could find one when you needed it. Mainly used for inventory and ordering. There was a way to print tags with them, but I never messed with that. The ones we had were black, and probably an older version / different brand. Either way they cost more than what I made in a month (during school). I did kick one out of a friend's hand with a soccer ball that was intresting when the boss saw a huge crack in the brand new order gun >.>
