    Was it really an “undeservedly low price”?

    When stores repeatedly place items under a price marker that makes them appear to cost less than they actually do, you have to wonder whether it’s really an accident. And when a customer chooses to buy an item based on one apparent price but ends up paying more, he’s being cheated.

    So in my opinion, it’s right that Best Buy has a policy in which they charge the posted price rather than the “actual” price (at least to customers who notice and complain about the discrepancy). And it’s right that they enforce it.

    So if I put a Macintosh in the DVD section, I can get it for $19.99? Sheesh. Face it, you ripped off Best Buy and you’re bragging about it. Sounds like you either put the pad there or someone else put it back on a shelf–any shelf–and left.

    The story was clear: the policy is only when there are multiple mishelved items. There was more than one of those pads on the shelf, so it was Best Buy mishevling or mislabling items. That one was Best Buy’s fault, not the customer’s.
