Circuit City Informative - Circuit City Scam - Internet Orders
Yes the brick and mortar Circuit City is out of business. The internet site is alive and well with excellent pricing and no hassle 30 day returns. They had the best price on a Samsung 23 inch LED monitor that I wanted. Amazon had the same price but the order is placed with Circuit City. I went directly to them to order. When I got the order confirmation they included a software product automatically that I did NOT order. "FREE with purchase 6 month of CA Anti-Virus Plus-Includes Software Automatic Renewal Service." Huh? It's bad enough when greedy companies try to auto renew you on a software product that you have purchased. Circuit City takes this one step further and adds an unauthorized software product to your purchase. I was smart and beat them at their own game, I used PayPal. They did not get my C. C. number. Circuit City then sent me a second email. "You have been opted out of our software subscription automatic renewal service because your form of payment does not qualify for the ARS program." Screw them. Glad I used PayPal. Be forewarned.
