Thats just R.S. manager acting like an a--h---...
-- not unusual for R.S. stores...
I used 2 coupons at two different places and never ever
gave ANY personal info or ID as I paid cash...for the difference.
it might be interesting to know if the stores
have access to any info actually on the card ...
By the way, I ordered one coupon, and will get the other
next year. I figure as time goes by, they iron out
problems with the boxes.. The other coupon I used was
for my mother ... forget about the analog by pass as it may reduce sig
strength (it does in one of my boxes) and is useless in about 12 weeks..
The Walmart box works better than the Best Buy box.
better sig stability and less artifacts.
