Boycotted anything lately?
Does is exist anymore?

Seems like the status quo lately is "when in rome..."

IS anyone boycotting anything out there out of principle? Even if futile?

Share your experiences IF any.

I used to boycott Walgreens. They seek out every CVS store, in texas and oklahoma anyway, and build directly accross the street. Always thought it kinda shady. Competition is a good thing, don't get me wrong, but to so obviously try to undermine your competitor's business?

But then I figured out I actually like them better

Yep,
Businesses who knowingly employ illegal immigrants.

Businesses who post a "NO WEAPONS ALLOWED" sign.

I could go on and on, but that would be futile.

Best Buy. That company has the worst attitude toward its customer that I have ever seen. Which to an extent I can tolerate, but when a store mgr and a customer service rep call my mom and I a liar its time to move on. Havent shopped there in years and dont plan to."There is a fine line between cutting edge and bleeding edge.."

I'm boycotting every company that sponsors Michael Vick until they drop him from their sponsorship. Looks like the public pressure has been working. Nike suspended their contract with him, Reebok is stopping sales of his jersey, Donruss is pulling his card from all their packs, and now Upper Deck has removed all of his autographed garbage from their online store; as well as removing his card from all their upcoming sets.

Couldn't agree more. I worked there for a couple of months when I was still in college. They sell themselves as a non-commission place to shop but that is very misleading. While the sales force is not paid commissions on sales, they are very closely tracked on how many Performance Service Plans (PSPs) they sell and you are highly pressured into selling those. To BB, it was pure profit as maybe 1 in 1000 might actually use them (except for computers). I really hated working there and it is the only job where I didn't feel compelled to give at least a two weeks notice. It's rather sad really as my supervisor 11 years ago is still employed in the same position he was when I was there. The only perk was the employee discount which at the time, was cost plus 10% but you weren't even eligible for it unless you worked there for three months I think.

I still don't understand why Circuit City is still struggling compared to Best Buy. They are so much nicer, more informed, and have much better return policies than BB IMO.

thats funny because around here, circuit city is a complete piece of crud to deal with and best buy is great.

best buy used to be horrendous, then the location got new managment. we noticed right away because we would walk in and there were completely new staff, everyone was nice, and people knew what they were talking about.

i boycot mcdonalds, kfc, and taco hell.

Arco Gasoline. Worst automotive fuel on the market. A fuel pump killer for sure and not at all worth the dime (3%) you might save by buying it. Our fleet vehicles were needing new fuel pumps every few months until we switched.op-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-thwop-t

They have Raceway here, usually 5-10 cents cheaper but you might as well top off your tank with a water hose. I have never stopped for gas at one, so I guess you could say I boycott them also.
