Introduce the My BestBuy Military Soldier`s Fortune

Status: Tell Us More
by on ‎02-14-2014 01:44 PM
Basically, a military discount & service but with a twist. A soldier can purchase items for themselves that can be delivered to their location or "stockpile" items that will be waiting for them when they return home from service. Market & promote the "stockpile" service for amazing P.R. boost. Have a commercial campain showcasing soldier`s returning to their loved ones with their family holding a large BB box full of items to help soldiers get back to "normal". Stick around for the unboxing, setup & 1st time usage. Confirm that the return/exchange policy is altered so they have a chance to examine the products.which will be a huge negative for obvious reasons. And allow them to forgo the return/exhange in return for the RZ pts being available right away so they can come right back to BB for more stuff maybe add ons for the items in the stockpile.

One concern I would have here is where would we physically store all the items that are "stockpiled"? Does anyone else have anything else to add here? Remember to vote for an idea if you like it.

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't some military positions/time arrangements confidential in the aspect even to the person itself? 

 

If this wasn't the situation I would be supportive of the idea. I would like to also suggest that BestBuy partners with the State of GA Marketplace for discounted products.

I could be wrong but I`m thinking the stockpile locations could be a huge tax break incentive for BB. Multi-use warehouse facilities like Iron Mountain has built to suit with stockpile storage & advanced 24/hr customer p/u. If I could buy something when the store is closed & pick it up @ 3 am how could Amazon/Newegg beat that. Use the warehouses in areas where there`s no stores & if there`s a large enough influx of p/u purchases you`ll know that you may need to consider opening a full retail location. You won`t need a large # of employees which will keep costs down as well.
