1994 Best Buy Flyer Reminds Us Of Simple, Yet Terrifying Times

- Page 1

Before the internet was super available, we had flyers (or paper inserts). We waited for that blessed Sunday paper when we could see all the upcoming deals. And when it was Christmas time? Look out. Those bad boys were getting cut out and glued to another sheet of paper, then promptly mailed off to Santa.

Even though it doesn't seem like that long ago, the technology in 1994 was...less than ideal. What we thought was groundbreaking now seems like the stone age.

This paper insert from Best Buy is no different. It's from the week of October 23, 1994, and it makes us cringe.

No payment until 1995? SIGN. ME. UP.

The plot of steadfast love was based on the author's grandparents-in-law, when he saw how doting they still were to one another after
