The game Tony Hawk: Shred is marked down to $9.99 from $29.99 at Best Buy, with free shipping. Fantastic deal, and Yero went to check it out. Then he noticed something odd: shipping is free, but this item cannot be shipped. Is something that doesn’t exist inherently free, or does not existing at all mean that it can have no cost?
I saw a posting that Tony Hawk: Shred (the game with the skateboard accessory) is on sale at BestBuy for $9.99. Sounds like a good deal, especially with Free Shipping, according to the icon in red above the price. But then under the 5 star rating (really? I thought this game reviewed poorly), shipping is “Not available.”
A simple data entry error can become very existential.
