Fry's $29.90 USB Cable Open Box Price? Only $47.49

I took this photo at Fry’s Electronics last night in Anaheim, California- And here I was thinking Best Buy was the only company to price their open box items at a premium. This Sony Ericsson data cable costs $29.90 unopened at Fry’s Electronics. If you’d like the ‘pre-used’ variety, it’ll cost you $17.59 MORE.

Awesome. I didn’t bother bringing it to their attention.

The open box price hike gnomes strike again!
