Circuit City Liquidation Price VS Reality

Reader Kenneth stopped by his local post-apocalyptic Circuit City for an evening of bargain hunting. Was he successful, you ask? No, sadly Kenneth did not bag his limit of deals and return home happy. Instead, he found a $30 6′ USB cable.

Kenneth says:

So, I decided to take a look at my almost-closed circuit city last night for some super deals. I get here and I’m quite disappointed. Please look at the attached picture.

A Standard 6 foot USB A – B cable. No box. No anything. In a zip lock bag. Listed for $30.59. After liquidation discounts.

Hey, let’s see what Monoprice charges for this beauty. Cables… USB… A – B…. Wait, does that say… $1.10?
