I don’t know about you, but I am somewhat of a sucker for science fiction. Growing up, I would spend hours vegging out on episodes of Star Trek, Star Wars marathons, and everything in-between. I once made my family late for a dinner because I could not be pulled away from my first viewing of 2001: A Space Odyssey. When Contact came out, I dug through my couch cushions to gather enough spare change and walked two miles to see the movie three days in a row. Knowing this about my experience with the genre- you might be able to guess how excited I was to see Interstellar.
To the people navigating Best Buy’s website, toasters may not be the most exciting of items. I am one of the many who look for the latest and greatest, how many pixels you can cram into a square inch and whatever else that can go longer, faster and better. When I start talking about toasters to co-workers and friends (whether they want to hear about it or not, I’ve either finally satiated my need for new tech (not likely) or the toaster is really cool.
Being a gamer can be a bit of an expensive hobby. For some, it’s not just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. You start by getting your console of choice (maybe even consoles), add on all of your extra controllers and other accessories, and then the exciting part; the games. With all of the incredible games set to still come out this year, you might be asking yourself, “How am I going to afford all of these?” Well, if you have some games lying around you’ve already finished or are perhaps tired of; Best Buy can help you save up this week by trading them in.
