    What exactly is the Fry's employee discount?  
     
    Is it really 90% off the gross profit of the product. It just seems like there are exceptions, exclusions, or other flakiness.

    Also, you can't combine discounts. For example, you cannot use AP and a free item promotion at the same time.

    Must be a very stupid employee because after all everyone knows that laptops there was barely ever any Ap on them..Hiya kids. Here is an important message from your Uncle Bill. Don't buy drugs. Become a pop star, and they give you them for free!

    If you are into porn then your AP will work well in that department. You get around 50% off the purchase price!

    Mostly non-name brand accessories to things and the stuff in Audio usually give great discounts with AP. I've also seen LG Screens in computers / External CD & DVD drives as well give some decent AP discount.

    how do you know when your AP runs out? I think i use mine every week. :face-devil-grin:
  14.  permalink
    You can see how much AP you have used, thus finding out how much you have left. You have $500 in usable discounts when you first start at frys. This is reset in November. After one year at frys the discount is increased to $750. I think after the 3rd year its either $1000 or 1500.  
     
    Ask a sup or someone who has been at frys for a while. In the POS there is a way to find out how much you have used. If I had the POS in front of me I could tell you the steps but I don't.

    The system lies at times. Kenneth Cole laptop bags are a key example of this. I sold one the other day and looked up my commission on the item. On that screen it shows the true cost of an item, and the bag's cost was $17. However if you enter AP on the item, it drops the bag go about 36, instead of the 20 or so it should be. If you want to see how accurate the AP actually is, look up your commission, write down the cost, then apply AP to that item. More times than not, it's no where near 10% above cost like it's supposed to be.

    [quote]Also, you can't combine discounts. For example, you cannot use AP and a free item promotion at the same time.[/quote]

    That's not true. If an item has a promotional discount you can combine the two if you do it from one of the customer service POS's. You do the AP up there, then apply the promotional discount. It will add the two discounts together. Those are the only computers in the store where it will allow you to do that. You're not supposed to do it, but it can be done from those computers.

    r3j3ct seems bright enough to me. Use of profanity doesn't always correlate to a lack of intelligence. You're propensity for writing Fry's employees off as such makes you seem a bit stuck up though. He's only using it to communicate with an obvious troll in terms that the troll can only seemingly understand.

    LOL what are you, some religious nut? Offended by profanity? Some of the smartest people in the world use profanity, get over it.  
     
    Also, your frequent "must be a fry's employee" comments makes me think that your opinions of Fry's employees is that they are all dumb, low life, clueless people. I can assure you, I have coworkers who have engineering degrees, and probably are MUCH smarter and MUCH MORE knowledgeable than you are... who only work there because the economy is down the shit hole and need a temporary job to keep themselves alive. I find people like you hilarious, always having extreme one sided opinions. "Oh, he's a Fry's employee... he must be the dumbest person in the world!" "Hey that guy over there just graduated college... he's the smartest human being ever!"

    One more thing - I don't make instant assumptions that someone is a slacker or miscreant just because they work at Fry's. I use my Jedi skills to observe and evaluate in order to arrive at a sound decision. I knew a couple of people at the Woodland Hills store that worked there only because Fry's was flexible enough for their college schedule. That said, Fry's does tend to have an over-abbundance of miscreants.
