30 Aug: Best Buy Express vending machines turn 10

If you’ve traveled through a major airport, chances are you’ve spotted a Best Buy Express.

These kiosks sell electronics much like how traditional vending machines dispense chips and candy bars. Just select the item you want, then swipe your credit card.

It’s all about being there for our customers when and where they need us. We have approximately 200 Best Buy Express locations nationwide, about 80 percent of which are inside airports.

“The biggest complaints people have about shopping at an airport are related to getting gouged on price and not knowing who they’re buying from,” said Betsy Maus, Best Buy’s associate director of automated retail.

14 Dec: Free Geek Squad Help Pops Up for MSP Airport Travelers

Travelers passing through Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this week will find a Geek Squad “Pop-Up Tech Experience” to help them make the most of their time spent in one of the busiest airports in the country.

The Geek Squad Pop-Up, similar to the precincts found in every Best Buy store, is located in Terminal 1 within the airport’s North Star Mall. It’s open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today through Sunday, Dec. 20.

The weeklong experience will offer travelers convenient, free advice from Geek Squad Agents, kid-friendly technology activities, tech demos of this year’s hottest gifts, charging plugs for drained devices and tablets, and desktop workstations for accessing free airport Wi-Fi, playing games or shopping for last-minute presents.
