AT Best Buy today, I saw a sign that attracted my attention. My sister is saving up for a Wii so this signage was very interesting to us. I stopped to look at it and try to find the catch. I didn't see one.
It looked like an incredible deal.
We almost pounced on it.
Until an employee stopped us. He came right up to us and said, "It's not what you think." Excuse me? He went on to explain that you actually have to buy the Wii for $199 and then you got the bundle for $99.96. A wonderful savings of $15.
Um Excuse me?
I said that that is NOT what the sign indicated. The sign indicates that the bundle that they have rubber-banded together is $99.96. He said that they knew it was deceptive but they were counting on the customer getting to the check-out and being told that it was $200 more than they thought and just going ahead and buying it.
Isn't that just wrong? I couldn't believe it. I wanted to try and buy one just to argue with them about False Advertising and get the whole thing for the advertised price.
Here's the picture:
Beware when shopping at Best Buy...it seems that they are out to trick you. Even according to one of their own employees.
You'll be happy to note that I did not approach management. I held my tongue, which is no small feat trust me.
I saved my frustration for Wal-Mart...oh let's don't even talk that!
