    Don't bother asking for help. No one seems to know anything about any of the stuff they sell. Make sure you know EXACTLY what you want. Decent prices. Read more

    Common sense tells u to research before u buy anything. You should never assume employees know what they're talking about. On that note, I've talked to.numerous employees who knew their stuff. Always

    When you're here with your boyfriend and he's buying tons of expensive shit, be sure to squeeze in a video game you really want (or keyboard!). ”it's only $40!” ;) works every time.

    Will Uhlig in the computer Dept is not customer service oriented, smug, and doesn't care if anyone buys anything. Part of the long term Fry's problem in Austin.

    Great selection and price. But know what you need because half the staff have no idea what's up. Asked 5 different people for help, only 1 gave me helpful advice and he didn't even work that dept.

    If you know what you are talking about, go talk down to the computer dept employees. Its good for them to get a taste of their own medicine.

    Make sure to look out for the Austin Statesman ads! Many a time dvds are 100 for 13 bucks! Customer service sucks but prices are worth the sacrifice!

    They don't really need to check your receipt on the way out. Just say "no thanks, I'm fine" and keep walking.
