Best Buy CEO Brings Back The Employee Discount

It has been a few months since we've written anything, but today we have something to talk about. Normally we talk about how Best Buy does stupid things & no one gets it. Today, we are going to let you know, that the new CEO Hubert Jolly has done something right for the company. He has brought back the original employee discount that was taken away months ago. There was outrage all across the company & many asking why.

We had mentioned in a blog about how lots of employees decided to shop on Amazon because they were cheaper on many items than using their discount at work. We're not sure what the company was thinking (but look at our other post about them not thinking) but whatever it was, it was a dumb mistake.

As of yesterday, all employees will now be able to take advantage of the discount the way it was before the axed it to no more than 50% off. That seems like a good discount, but not so much when many items employees told us they purchased at work were purchased cheaper from online places. Again, sending your own employees to buy elsewhere seems like an idea someone with an IQ of a rock made up. Well... many of those corporate people are gone. Thank God! Hopefully, this is just one small piece of the puzzle to help turn the company around. Sure it's not going to bring their stock back up, but it'll make employees that much happier to work for Best Buy again, as well as keep them from going elsewhere to buy items they could have purchased at work. Turing the company around as a CEO starts with your employees. So Hurbert Jolly.... you are a hero to many of your employees who work for you.


  1. Question- I have recently been offered an Assistant Manager position. I haven't started yet, and I haven't signed the acceptance yet. What can I expect as far as how many hours I will be working each week. I have seen posts about their ROWE concept. Is this something they still use and does it work? What about merit increases? What is an average increase each year? What about bonuses? Are there monthly incentives? What do they average for an Assistant Manager? I noticed they get no vacation time. They do get some PTO. I am not sure of the difference, unless it means that one is not guaranteed. Any immediate insight would be helpful!

  6. Using laxatives can cause an imbalance of your body's natural electrolytes,
    which leads to dehydration. Proper electrolyte balance is necessary for good cardiovascular
    function, and when this balance is tipped by chronic diarrhea, it may result
    in irregular heartbeat, arrhythmia, heart attack, or even death.
    Psyllium has even been shown to help some people who have irritable bowel
