Don't buy stuff just because *they* claim it's a bargain, do your
homework first.

When CompUSA went belly up a year or two ago they sold everything to a
liquidator that ran the same sort of sale using the CompUSA name.
Their "amazing" prices were all relative to list though, which no one
ever pays.  Everything was sold "as is" and "no returns" but the
prices were significantly higher than Newegg (online) or Fry's (online
and in the neighborhood), and Amazon for quite a while.

There were bargains at the very end, but by that point it was pretty
sketchy stuff....

Caveat emptor.
