ScanShack incident - I'm burning my RS Gold Card

I've really had it with Radio Shack.
I've been a good customer for years.
PRO-2004, 43, 91 & many incidental items.

I am seriously considering burning my Radio Shack Gold Card if they don't
change their attitude about SCANSHACK and many other irritations.

Just me doing it alone will not have any influence, but if a lot of us, all
over the nation, burn or cut up the cards in front of the stores, I think we
can encourage a change.Publicity is essential. I don't quite know how to do it.
I think what we need to do is organize on this NG, plan a date, and get the
media involved.
What do you think?

Excellent suggestion.  Call your local TV station.  "Consumer inquiry" or
whatever they call it in your area.  They LOVE this kind of stuff!  Especially
when it involves big corporations trying to flex their muscle against
individual citizens.

  I for one have bought about $100 worth of various stuff from two different
area RS's in the past year. I will NOT buy from RS again until they offer
ScanShack an apology for trying to BULLY it.

Wow, my Tandy stock just dropped 5 points....and on a Sunday no less. Yes,
you have put the fear of God into Tandy now! I bet the legal department is
churning out an apology first thing Monday morning.   :-)

Sergio, they don't care. If you could cancel that 1.2 million dollar order
you might have some leverage. Until then go build a WWW page if you are
angry.***them off by makeing it impossible for people to search for Radio
Shack with a search engine.
