Best Buy Vending Machines

While we've shown you some really innovative vending machines before, there's a new type of vending machine in town well worth mentioning. If you happen to be at the Dallas/Fort Worth airport, you may see one of Best Buy's blue and yellow Express machines which dispense electronic gadgets.

Purchasing pricey items from vending machines has become a new business trend. Companies have figured out that vending machines somehow trivialize purchases --making it easier to spend a lot of money -- putting it on the same level as buying a candy bar.

I'm not against the idea, either. Ultimately, the end result is the same. It's you, using your credit card. What you bypass is the annoying employees - upselling" you - getting you to buy the optional, urban camo cover.
