Reader Kevin was flipping through the online version of the latest Best Buy circular when he stumbled upon the car charger/headphone/iPod Touch case bundle seen here for a total of $29.97, a purported savings of $42. Which would be nice, except for the fact that you can save even more by actually buying those items separately.
“Not a huge difference,” writes Kevin, “but sneaky nonetheless.”
Obviously Best Buy is not the only company whose “sales” and “bundles” are not always, well… a best buy. So let this be yet another lesson to always check the prices of the individual items in any sort of bundle to make sure you are indeed getting a deal.
