Tiger stopped checking reciepts about a 6 months ago. Maybe not that far back. It doesn't really bother me, but just seems stupid to have a cash register 6 feet away from check point and think that you need to check again. What did I grab in a 6 foot distance? ok ok maybe 8 feet. Still, I guess I am old school, I do buy plenty on the web, but I truly just like looking at the stuff before I buy it. I have found prices to be the same or even better at the store than online. The clearance boxes can be real fruitful.
I am going to Atlanta next week, and I am going to stop at one of the FRY's to see if they still carry a decent amount of components. I'll let you know if they are still STEALING your dignity as you walk out.

If you want that sort of shopping experience, check out TigerDirect on Capitol Blvd in Raleigh. I'd written about this here a few years back:
That was the last time TigerDirect got a penny from me.
