Best Buy: We Charge More For An Open Item

At first when reader Brian sent this photo of an open item that cost more than a new one, we thought, “HA! Stupid!”

Then we realized that no, it’s not stupid. They’re just charging a modest $2 fee to open that ridiculous #$%@$ clamshell packaging for you. And as far as we’re concerned— it’s a deal.
