Waiting until you’re leaving the store with a purchase to defy Best Buy’s receipt-checking policy makes for entertaining stories, but a more effective long-term solution is to go to the source and let your voice be heard.

Users can vote up ideas they agree with, increasing the likelihood they’ll catch the eyes of decision makers.
