That’s right. Ten bucks. Picture to the left. In case you can’t read it, it’d model #LN52A650.
You would still have to pay a flat $70 for the delivery, a buck in tax and a $25 recycling fee but that still only comes to a total of $106 total for the first one and about eleven bucks ($9.99 for the television and the buck for tax.) for each additional one.
From looking at the timestamps of the threads, it took BestBuy no less than 6 hours to notice the mistake and pull the advertising. Some posters ordered upwards of a dozen before the advert disappeared and then wondered if they would actually get the wide screen televisions.
After pulling the error, BestBuy issued a correction and refused to honour the price. They also locked the thread to prevent people complaining I noticed. Didn’t stop anyone though. There’s no less than three other threads on the topic. (edit: Oops, found a fourth.)
So what do you think? Should BestBuy honour the price? Amazon sells the television for just under $1,300. BestBuy would lose over a thousand dollars per unit sold. But if they don’t, they’ll probably lose the business of all the customers who bought those televisions. I didn’t get one but will think twice about shopping there again.
