Why is this tagged "music" and "audio"? I don't really know what it is that Radio Shack sells enough of to keep in business, but it certainly is not music, and unless you count bluetooth headsets and cell phones under "audio" they don't have much of that either.

I guess you aren't a DIY kinda person? RadioShack is fantastic for parts when you need audio or electronic stuff.

Not sure about the tags, I never add tags because I know I will screw them up. Those were added after the fact.

If this requires the use privacy-destroying Foursquare, count a LOT of people out.

@djp519: If you clicked the link you would see it takes you to a page with the coupon. No information needs to be given. Just click, show, save.

@coondogg97: I don't know about RadioShack near you, but every RadioShack I've walked into in the past decade has had virtually nothing of any value for DIY types. Sure, back in the 80s and 90s you could get all the resistors, capacitors, breadboards, etc, you want for your own stuff, but that is all gone now. Every RadioShack I walk into now is 60% cell phones, 20% cell phone accessories, 10% radio controlled toys and batteries, and 10% empty space or cash register. I couldn't even find speaker wire at the last one I walked in to.

Does this mean I need some sort of smart phone to carry into the store? I don't have (and don't want) a smart phone. Give me a legitimate paper coupon, or something I can print on my home PC.

And right.. Radio Crap hasn't had a decent selection of DIY parts for at least 10 years, probably more like 20. Now it's all cellphones and overpriced girly stuff like paisley cellphone cases. Ugh!

@lparsons42: I worked for RadioShack as a store manager from 2009-20011 and can assure you that every single corporately operated RadioShack has resisters, capacitors, breadboards, LEDs, potentiometers, and diodes (among plenty of other choices). There are also dozens of skus of speaker wire in a multitude of gauges.

There are franchises, but they are few are far between. No corporate store would ever exist as you've described, so I assume you had the unfortunate experience to step foot in a store that merely pays to have the RadioShack name and a few RadioShack branded selections.

That said, there are many reasons why people should avoid RadioShack and spend their money elsewhere. The selection of items you're looking for, however, is not one of those reasons.

"At the end of Fiscal Year 2011, RadioShack had 4,703 Company-operated stores in the United States and Mexico; 1,496 Target Mobile centers; 1,110 dealer and other outlets worldwide."

Most mall radio shacks have dropped the parts, or relegated them to "drawers". However the 4 privately owned radio shacks I managed '99 through '09 had every part available, and the corporate stores I visited outside of malls did too.

" there are many reasons why people should avoid RadioShack"

Most definitely!

Ok, what am I doing wrong? When I click on the title, it takes me to a page that says I must sign up with Foursquare before it will take me to the coupon. I know I don't want to do that! Is there a way around it?

@maggietffh: ditto. U prolly need a 4sqr or fb acct.

I Just went to the Radio Shack near me that Foursquare advertises this sale. They had no idea about this coupon and asked the other managers around the city if they knew about it. Does this come with a Cashier code?
