Got this off of techdeals.com I think
A price mistake for a video card that retails for 300 + and went on sale for 130 at BB can get you in jail. Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but it seems BB purposely made a price mistake, legitament orders and reciepts were issued for the card, and when ppl showed up to pick up the video card were arrested on the spot.
Bad Best Buy...baaaad.:mad:

Techbargains.com had a link this morning about this story. If you read the info, it appears it may have been one store, one hyper customer and one idiot manager.
That's pretty low.....but Best Buy is still my favorite store :)
Got to like the way this story is being spun by hypothermia. Another typical example of trying to rile up people to get views. Anything for the [H]its. :D
As soon as this Best Buy GeForce 4 steal deal came up everyone could hear the crys of wanna be wounded gf4 children. :heh:
These people who ordered that card knew damn well they weren't going to get it and that this was a mistake. Yet they act like they are owed it. The internet has made it easier to act greedy and badly. :disa:
JFYI Best Buy did offer $30 purchase credits to those who ordered the GeForce4 Ti4600 at that price. Yet in in avarice these folks in complain this is not good enough since they just want more. A very sad thing obviously since greed is not good.
Its laughable that Best Buy should be crucified for alleged shady dealings but those who take advantage should be rewarded for questionable behavior. Definitely a double standard.
